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.


Looking for the best butt lift option for you? 

If you have excess fat in your abdomen, lower back, and hip areas, liposuction with fat transfer, also known as a Brazilian Butt Lift, may be the perfect solution. Dr. Ogilvie uses low-pressure liposuction techniques to harvest fat cells, which are then processed and injected using a micro-droplet technique to ensure their survival.

The result is a more permanent and significant increase in volume, with improved body contouring that enhances the shape of your buttocks. During your consultation, Dr. Ogilvie will provide extensive advice on the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure and how it can work for you, delivering soft, natural, and significant results that will leave you feeling confident and beautiful.


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.

A butt lift in Chicago, IL at Ogilvie Plastic Surgery may enhance and revitalize your rear end to help you attain the sexier physique you long for with a host of outstanding advantages, such as:

  • Firms and tightens the buttocks
  • Removes drooping, sagging excess skin
  • Enhances shape and outline
  • Minimizes the visibility of cellulite
  • Brings out an improved look and fit to your attire
  • Pairs well with different surgical treatments
  • Improves self-esteem and confidence

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.

What to Expect During and After Your Butt Lift

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.

About Us
How much does a butt lift cost?
The cost of a butt lift varies based on different factors. During a consultation, Dr. Ogilvie can discuss your desired outcomes before developing a personalized surgical plan. Then our administrative team reviews the cost of your procedure and other associated fees. Rest assured, we strive to make our butt lift surgery as affordable for our patients as possible.
Will I have visible scarring from a butt lift?
A butt lift is a surgical procedure, so some scarring is expected. However, Ogilvie Plastic Surgery always strives to make any necessary incisions very thin. In addition, our trained staff knows how to make incisions in natural contours to minimize their visibility. Patients are happy with their beautiful results, and scarring fades over time.
What happens if I gain weight after a butt lift?
The results of a butt lift can change if you gain a significant amount of weight. This is why our specialists in Chicago, IL recommend you be at or close to a healthy weight before butt lift surgery. We also suggest maintaining a healthy lifestyle after your procedure to ensure long-term results. During the recovery period, it’s important to follow Dr. Ogilvie’s instructions as given.
Should I get implants or a fat transfer?

To improve the shape and size of your buttocks, you can choose butt augmentation using either silicone implants or fat grafting (the Brazilian butt lift). In your consultation, Dr. Ogilvie will discuss both methods and help you choose which best matches your body and wants. He will also examine your body to find the best areas would get liposuction (usually the thighs, back, or stomach). You may not be a candidate for a BBL if your body fat percentage is too low.

How long will my results last?

Although a small amount of fat may be reabsorbed by your body after your Brazilian butt lift, most of the fat will remain in your buttocks for a long time. To keep your results, you need to maintain a steady weight because significant weight loss or gain can affect the results of your Brazilian butt lift. This is why Dr. Ogilvie suggests you be at a healthy weight prior to your Brazilian butt lift so it is easy for you to maintain.

How can I recover faster after a BBL?

To help speed your recovery after a BBL, Dr. Ogilvie or someone on his team will give you post-surgical instructions. You should avoid sitting on your butt for at least 14 days as the area heals. Dr. Ogilvie recommends you have a donut-shaped pillow or a Boppy nursing pillow that allows you to sit down with pressure placed on your legs instead of your buttocks. Light stretching and short walks can improve your blood flow and decrease swelling. Dr. Ogilvie might also recommend a lymphatic drainage massage that can help your recovery.
