About the Brazilian Butt Lift
Gluteal enhancement surgery or various versions of the popular "Brazilian butt lift" has become increasingly popular over the last several years. This expansion in popularity has been reflected by an increased demand for this procedure by Dr. Stile’s patients at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV. Women and men want this procedure for a number of reasons. These reasons include: improving the contour and overall size of their rear, lifting and shaping the buttocks, restoring lost gluteal volume after weight loss, or just improving their proportions.
During this procedure, board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile uses the tumescent liposculpture technique to harvest fat from other areas of the body. Fat may be harvested from 4 – 6 different areas and such areas may include the abdomen, flanks, inner/outer thighs, arms, and upper back. The harvested fat is then processed and purified. Dr. Stile will then expertly inject the fat into the buttocks to create an aesthetically sculpted, beautiful, and larger rear.
All patients are different, as are their needs and goals. A consultation with Dr. Stile is an optimal way to further explore this procedure and to understand first-hand what will work best for you. Additionally, your options and expectations can be discussed. Call Stile Aesthetics to schedule a complimentary consultation.
Candidates for the Brazilian butt lift get the best of both worlds with this butt augmentation surgery as it slims other areas and adds sensual volume to the buttocks. Best candidates will have the following:
- Excellent skin elasticity in the buttocks area
- Have enough fatty tissue available for liposuction
- Have overall good health
- Have realistic expectations of the fat transfer
Brazilian Butt Lift Reviews
"I am a 61-year old woman, who because of the skilled hands of Dr. Stile, now looks 45 years old. And that is no exaggeration! I speak from experience, as follows: I have had a rhinoplasty (Sacramento, Ca), breast augmentation (Reno, NV), a tummy tuck and Brazilian butt lift (Sarasota, FL), and most recently an eyebrow lift, mini facelift, and liposuction to the thighs (Dr. Stile.) So, I know a little about plastic surgery. I visited Dr. Stile, for the first time, in early February 2018, specifically for a mini face lift and liposuction to the waist. While I was consulting with Dr. Stile, I asked candidly for him to take look at my face and suggest other procedures, if any, from which I may benefit, considering my age, and the age I appear to other people. I was particularly concerned about a sagging jaw line. Dr. Stile agreed a mini facelift would help, and he also suggested a browlift. Because this was the first time I will have had a procedure performed by Dr. Stile, I made clear to Dr. Stile that I didn't want to end up with a stretched looking jaw line/lower face or any freaky looking eyebrows. He reassured me that I should be very pleased with the results. Well, he was right!!!!!!!! I opted for a mini face lift, an eyebrow lift, and liposuction to the thighs. (I initially wanted liposuction to the waist, and later decided I also wanted liposuction to the thighs. Because Dr. Stile stated that four procedures will be too much for the body, I decided to lipo the thighs this time and do the waist later.) Anyone who has had plastic surgery will tell you the challenge is always the recovery process. It basically took me about ten days before I felt able to attend to house chores and resume working from home on my computer. With respect to the recovery, I needed to wear the Spandex stretch garment on the body for two weeks and a similar stretch band from the top of the head to the neck for also two weeks. The stitches over the eyes were miniscule and once taken out and healed, no scars are visible at all. With respect to the face lift, again, no scars are visible at all. (Dr. Stile cuts at the front of the ears and at the nape.) I wish to emphasize that during my follow-up visits, with Dr. Stile, when I had any concerns about how things were looking; for example, my smile was askew or the fact I was seeing no visible results from the liposuction to the thighs, Dr. Stile reassured me to give it time to see the full results. Well, he was right, again! I have a beautiful smile, and I definitely see my thighs are skinnier than before the procedure.! More specifically, both men and women are shocked to know that I am 61 years old. A lot of younger men approach me, thinking I'm anywhere between 45-50 years old! I've had cocktail waitresses and bartenders ask me, "Are you really 61? I don't believe it. Who's your doctor?" My point is, Dr. Stile knows his stuff!!!!! Go to him, listen to him, and do everything he tells you to do. If you do these three things, you will be one happy camper!!!! Oh, and by the way, as an added bonus, the entire office staff working for Dr. Stile is unmatchable: they are always available to answer your questions, always polite, and always attentive to your needs."- C.S. / Yelp / Jun 25, 2018
What to Expect
The Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient procedure performed in an accredited surgical facility (under general anesthesia) for several hours or longer if there are multiple areas of fat that are receiving liposuction. All incisions made for the Brazilian butt lift are very small and the fat is injected in layers with a syringe. Once the procedure is complete and the patient is in the recovery room, the patient will not be able to sit or lay down on their backs for at least 2 – 3 weeks. Patients can expect to be swollen and bruised as well, but may see their beautiful results in 6 – 8 weeks.
Many patients choose a Brazilian butt lift because they want their new curves to look and feel natural, plus they do not want an implant. The disadvantage to using body fat instead of an implant is that there is a higher chance that the fat may be reabsorbed into the body, deflating the fat grafting site. The surgeon will usually add more fat than the patient needs for their desired look to account for initial fat reabsorption. Patients should keep in mind that any major fluctuations in weight (gain or loss) will affect the aesthetics of the surgery.
