Hourglass curves remain the most desirable body shape, but achieving this ideal can be challenging. Many women lack fullness in the buttocks area. While exercise can tone and contour the areas below the waist, it rarely produces the dramatic change in contour many women desire. A Brazilian butt lift is the secret to building volume and creating an ideal shape in the buttocks. 

A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that uses excess body fat to volumize and shape the buttocks. This procedure has become increasingly popular over the last several years and is now available at many plastic surgery practices throughout the United States, including here in Greenwich, CT. While many providers offer this procedure, few have the training and expertise needed to achieve the lasting results Dr. Sandra Margoles has earned a reputation for providing. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Margoles has performed many fat grafting procedures with exceptional attention to safety and results. Her impeccable training and attention to detail make her an ideal surgeon for your butt lift procedure in Greenwich, CT.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a type of fat grafting procedure, which moves fat from a “donor” area into a spot that needs additional volume. Dr. Margoles will extract fat from an area of the body with excess – often the waist or thighs – and transplants it into the buttocks, where the cells will establish a blood supply on their own. 

Since a butt lift takes fat from one area and moves it into another, this procedure shapes and contours two areas of the body with a single treatment. If you’re trying to achieve an hourglass shape, this procedure can improve the waist and the buttocks simultaneously. Many women also opt for breast augmentation to balance their results and achieve their desired body shape.

Brazilian Butt Lift in Greenwich & Westchester: FAQs

Most of your recovery will happen at home. Patients return to our office regularly so Dr. Margoles can monitor their healing. 

To ensure that transferred fat has the best chances for implantation, Dr. Margoles asks BBL patients to avoid sitting or lying on the buttocks for at least two weeks after surgery. A typical recovery after a BBL takes four to six weeks.

Scarring is minimal after a butt lift procedure. Small incisions are necessary for the fat extraction, but Dr. Margoles places these carefully to minimize visibility and ensure discreet healing. Most patients will not notice much, if any, permanent scarring.

Patients achieve the best results from their plastic surgery procedures when their surgeon customizes the procedure to their needs. With personalized procedures, many variables can impact cost, making it impossible to provide an accurate quote without meeting a patient and discussing their goals. 

We’ll provide a detailed estimate for your procedure costs during your consultation with Dr. Margoles.

Dr. Margoles recommends waiting about three months for women who are not nursing. This allows time for the uterus to regain its normal size and shape. Moms who are breastfeeding should avoid general anesthesia.

A Brazilian butt lift uses a patient’s body fat to enhance and contour the buttocks. In contrast, traditional butt augmentation uses a silicone implant. Many patients prefer the natural look and feel of a BBL over implants. Butt implants must withstand significant force from sitting and lying down, potentially increasing the chances of complications. Since a BBL uses a patient’s tissues, there is no risk of rejection or implant rupture.

Patients are usually advised to avoid sitting directly on their buttocks for the first couple of weeks. They may use special cushions or pillows to minimize pressure on the area.

Common donor areas for fat harvest include the abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs, and back. The choice of donor areas depends on the patient’s unique body and goals.

While not all injected fat may survive, the fat that successfully establishes a blood supply in the buttocks typically remains there permanently.

Like any surgical procedure, there are risks involved, including infection, bleeding, fat embolism, asymmetry, and skin irregularities. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon can minimize these risks.

It can take several weeks for the swelling to subside and for the final results of the Brazilian Butt Lift to become apparent, usually around six to eight weeks.

Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon ensures that your surgeon has the necessary training, experience, and expertise to perform the procedure safely and effectively. They are also held to the highest ethical standards in medicine.

Many patients combine a BBL with procedures like liposuction, tummy tuck, or breast augmentation for a more comprehensive transformation.

The duration of a Brazilian Butt Lift surgery varies, but it generally takes around two to four hours, depending on the case’s complexity.

Most patients can return to work within one to two weeks, although this can vary depending on the nature of your job and the extent of the procedure.

Light activities can be resumed after a few weeks, but strenuous exercises should be avoided for several weeks for proper healing.

There isn’t a strict age limit, but candidates should be healthy and have realistic expectations. Consultation with a surgeon will determine suitability.

While you can resume light activities within a few weeks, increasing your activity level gradually is important to avoid complications.

Significant weight fluctuations can impact the results of a Brazilian Butt Lift. Maintaining a stable weight is advisable to ensure your results’ longevity.
