About Butt Lift

A butt lift procedure is designed to make the buttocks appear more projected and improve the overall posterior silhouette. These results can be difficult to achieve via natural means alone, namely diet and exercise, hence many patients employ surgical means to create the overall appearance they desire. Dr. Ogilvie performs butt lift procedures for his patients in the Chicago area, helping them achieve a contoured silhouette that reflects their preferred body image more accurately.

Introduction to Butt Lift

There are two methods used to improve the buttock silhouette. The first method, which is less popular, involves the use of silicone implants. The second, more popular method involves the use of transferred fat.

Often known as a Brazilian Butt Lift, this fat transfer method can produce results that look and feel significantly more natural, without the potential complications of implant placement.

How to Get Started on my Butt Lift?

Aesthetic preferences surrounding the butt have changed significantly in the last few years. This has made butt lift procedures more popular than ever. If you want to know how your body might benefit from a butt lift or how a butt lift might interact with your physiology, contact Dr. Ogilvie to schedule a consultation, where you can talk about your desired results and how best to achieve them.

Who is a Good Candidate For Butt Lift?

Most candidates for a butt lift procedure are looking to increase the overall size and volume of the buttocks while paying special attention to the overall shape. A butt lift is designed to make the rear end appear firmer and rounder via fat injections (like the Brazilian Butt Lift) or silicone implants. Which butt lift technique works best for you will be determined by Dr. Ogilvie, based on your preferences and your desired outcome.

Brazilian Butt Lift techniques rely on liposuction to collect donor fat material for injections. Candidates for butt lifts will typically have an area in mind that they’d like to see slimmed down (that’s why a Brazilian Butt Lift is often considered a two-for-one or bonus plastic surgery procedure).

Is BBL Right For Me?

In general, good candidates for a butt lift will:

  • Want to increase the size of their buttocks
  • Want to improve the overall shape of the butt (in most cases, ensuring a round, natural-looking shape)
  • Have sufficient excess fat to provide donor tissue, in cases of Brazilian Butt Lift
  • Be generally healthy enough for surgery
  • Have realistic expectations about what butt lift will achieve
  • Maintain a relatively stable weight

If you want to know whether you’re a good fit for a butt lift procedure, contact Dr. Ogilvie’s office to schedule a consultation.

The Butt Lift Procedure

There are two distinct butt lift methods–one involving fat injections and the other involving the insertion of silicone implants. Both procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, so patients are allowed to return home the same day as their procedure.

A Butt Lift With Implants — If your butt lift procedure requires implants, two small incisions will be made along the upper buttock cleft, and the implants are then placed below the gluteus maximus muscle. Incisions are closed with sutures, and the patient is allowed to return home. Swelling may take several weeks to subside, but patients will notice a significantly larger and rounder buttocks area.

A Butt Lift with Fat Injections — During a butt lift with fat injections, small incisions will be made for liposuction in the desired area. Once the fat is removed, it is purified and injected in multiple directions to ensure the fat is evenly distributed and taken evenly across the desired area. Swelling may take several weeks to subside, but once it does, patients will notice a significant rounder and larger buttocks area that looks and feels almost completely natural.

Contact Dr. Ogilvie

Whichever butt lift procedure you undergo, it will be exceptionally important to be careful not to sleep, sit, or lay on your buttocks during your recovery period, as this may jeopardize your final overall results.

All patients are given individualized recovery instructions. If you want to know more about how a butt lift can help your butt look firmer, rounder, and larger, contact Dr. Ogilvie to schedule a consultation at his Chicago area office.

Dr. Ogilvie is an amazing surgeon. He listens to your exceptions before he puts his input in. I have never been unhappy with any of the procedures that Dr. Ogilvie has performed. He has also fixed a scar from a previous surgeon that looked horrible and now you can barley see it. I’ve had cosmetic procedures done by Dr Ogilvie, once again they were amazing! I would never go to anyone else. His staff is great as well .
