The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure at the Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge has gained increasing popularity in recent years due to its natural, gorgeous outcomes using a patient’s own body fat. Plastic surgeon, Dr. Erick Sanchez, performs the Brazilian butt lift procedure by harvesting fat from the patient’s body using liposuction, purifies the fat, and then injects the fat into the buttocks, creating a rounder and fuller bottom. This surgery is a great opportunity for men and women who have experienced flattened buttocks because of genetics, weight loss, or aging, which can negatively affect the way their clothes fit, as well as impact self-esteem, to boost their appearance and confidence.
The best candidates for a Brazilian butt lift are those who have a flat or deflated buttock, but yet have enough fat elsewhere on the body to extract for the transfer. Patients who are very thin, may not be suitable candidates for this surgery. Butt implants are usually a better option for these individuals. Candidates who undergo a fat transfer to the buttock should maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, and avoid smoking.

"It was a great experience from when I walked in the door to when I walked out. Everyone was so nice and accommodating & Dr. Sanchez spent a good amount of time with me before and during the procedure, compared to other plastic surgeons.

What to Expect?
Prior to the procedure, the patient’s body will be assessed to determine where on the body the liposuction will extract fat. The patient will also have the opportunity to discuss their desired look for their buttocks. Liposuction is used, and the fat is then filtered and grafted for an effective transfer. Some of the fat extracted will not be injected into the buttocks because it did not pass the filtration process. The healthy fat is then injected into designated areas of the buttocks through a syringe. Many layers of fat may be used to achieve the desired look, however, the incisions are very small and will leave very minimal scarring.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
A Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient surgery that typically takes about 2 hours to perform. The length and outcome of the procedure is dependent upon how many donor sites are needed to extract fat, as well as how many layers of injections are needed to achieve the desired look. After the procedure, patients can expect swelling and bruising of the rear-end and the liposuctioned area(s). Patients will have difficulty sitting and may not be able to comfortably do so until the swelling has subsided. It will take approximately 3 months to see the full aesthetic results of the procedure.
The estimated cost for a Brazilian butt lift varies based on the amount of liposuction needed during the fat extraction process. Typically, this process ranges from $8,000- $10,000 in price.
