About The Brazilian Butt Lift
A procedure known as the Brazilian butt lift is considered one of the fastest-growing treatments in Jacksonville, FL and is currently in popular demand by both men and women. This butt enhancement surgery provides people with a natural way to obtain rounder and shapelier buttocks without having to use an implant. Weight loss, the aging process, and genetics can lead to flat and unshapely buttocks. Today, a curvy, rounder bottom is desired more than a flat behind. A Brazilian butt lift adds volume to the patient's buttocks area to create the right amount of shape. The process is achieved through a unique fat transfer process, which uses liposuction to take unwanted fat from one place of your body and then reinstates it into your buttocks. It takes an artistic eye to perfect the Brazilian butt lift. With years of advanced training and experience, board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin are able to garner natural-looking, beautiful results at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates.

HOW IS A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT DONE?
The ideal patients for the Brazilian butt lift will be evaluated to make sure they are right for this treatment. If you are of low body weight or have limited fat to extract and purify, you may not be a good fit for this procedure. It is also crucial to have healthy skin laxity. If your buttocks have loose, hanging skin, you may require a BBL with surgery. If you maintain a stable weight, have the right amount of fat to extract, and do not want to use a foreign object, such as an implant, this procedure can be a terrific alternative for you. A form of liposuction will be used first to extract fat from targeted areas on the body, including the thighs, flanks, and lower back. The extracted fat is never exposed to air since it is purified in a sterile system. It is during this time, viable and healthy fat tissue is carefully harvested and placed into syringes. The final step is the injection transfer where the extracted fat tissue is injected layer by layer, followed by a gentle massage to make sure the surface is smooth. This phase is repeated multiple times until the desired size and shape have been attained.
Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ
Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
If you want to improve the shape and size of your butt, you could get butt augmentation with either implants or fat grafting (the Brazilian butt lift). In your consultation, our skilled surgeons will talk to you about both options and help you decide which fits your physique and goals. We will also assess your body to decide which areas would benefit from liposuction (usually the stomach, thighs, or back). You may not be a candidate for a BBL if your body fat percentage is too low.
How can I recover faster after a BBL?
To help speed your recovery time following a Brazilian butt lift, our team will go over post-operative instructions and tips. You will need to avoid sitting on your buttocks for at least 14 days as the area heals. We suggest you have a donut-shaped or nursing pillow that allows you to sit — so the pressure is on your thighs instead of your butt. Light stretching and short walks will help to improve your blood circulation and reduce inflammation. We may also recommend a special post-surgical massage that can help your recovery.
Will a BBL remove loose skin?
While it's called a Brazilian butt lift, this name is confusing since it's not really a butt lift, which removes loose and sagging skin from your butt. However, the extra volume transferred to your buttocks during a Brazilian butt lift may fill some loose skin. If you are concerned about moderate or severe loose skin in your butt, you might need a butt lift with your Brazilian butt lift. Our team will discuss your options based on your goals during your initial consultation.
How long will my results last?
While some fat may be reabsorbed by your body after the Brazilian butt lift, most of the fat cells will remain in their new location for a long time. To maintain your results, you should keep your weight steady since significant weight gain or loss can alter your BBL results. That's why Dr. Nuveen recommends you be at a healthy, stable weight prior to your Brazilian butt lift — so it's easier for you to maintain.
