About The Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift has become one of the most rapidly growing treatments in the U.S. and is currently in popular demand by both men and women. This butt enhancement surgery offers individuals a natural way to have a rounder and shapelier buttocks without using an implant. Significant weight loss, aging, gravity, as well as genetics can lead to a flat and unshapely buttocks. Today, a rounder, more voluptuous rear end is desired more than ever. Using your own fat, the Brazilian butt lift adds fullness to the buttocks area to create the desired roundness and shape. The process is accomplished through a unique, specialized fat grafting and transfer process, which uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat pockets from a targeted place on your body and then transfers it into your backside. There is an artistic approach to perfecting this body contouring surgery and with many years of training, experience, and surgical skill, Metairie, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Cynthia Mizgala is able to achieve natural, gorgeous results at A Woman Plastic Surgeon.
Patients for the Brazilian butt lift will be evaluated to confirm they are good candidates for this treatment. The first consideration is to confirm there is adequate fat elsewhere on the body to remove for the transfer process. If you have a low body weight or have limited fat to remove for the transfer, you are not an ideal candidate. Moreover, it is also crucial to have healthy skin laxity. If your buttocks have loose, hanging skin, the recommended treatment may be a surgical butt lift, with or without a fat transfer. If you have the right amount of fat to extract and transfer and do not want to use an implant, this can be a terrific procedure for you.

"Very Happy with my New Chin! - I'd been wanting this procedure for awhile. The doctor and staff were lovely and it really didn't hurt. There was some lumpiness I had to adjust to as my body healed, but I wore the compression garment as much as possible and used a lot of arnica for bruising/swelling. I'm very happy with the results and so glad I did it."- J. / RealSelf / Dec 03, 2019

"Without a doubt the best doctor I’ve ever had. Dr. Mizgala is a magician who made my flabby stomach washboard flat, and made an ugly C-section scar disappear. She is an absolutely brilliant surgeon, and her sincere interest in and concern for her patients was clear throughout my time with her. All my questions and concerns were personally and fully answered in a way I could understand and that put me at ease. I would trust her to do any surgery or procedure without a doubt.

General anesthesia is used for a fat transfer surgery butt lift. It is an outpatient procedure and takes around 2 – 6 hours (depending on the quantity of fat that is being liposuctioned and reinjected). Liposuction will be performed first to extract fat from specific locations on the body, such as the abdominal area, hips, and thighs. The fat tissue is aspirated from unwanted areas of fat into a closed and sterile canister. The healthy fat tissue is carefully harvested and put into syringes. The final step is the injection phase, where the healthy fat tissue is injected layer by layer, followed by a gentle massage to ensure the surface is even and smooth. This step is repeated multiple times until the desired roundness and shape has been achieved.
What to Expect
Following a Brazilian butt lift, you will be released home to recover. Keep in mind, there are two areas that need to be monitored — where the fat was liposuctioned and your enhanced buttocks. Both areas will have incisions and may be bruised and sore. Patients should try their best to not place unnecessary weight on the buttocks for about two weeks following surgery. As soon as the swelling has gone away, results are visible, but usually, the full outcome is seen in about 4 – 6 weeks. The butt will look curvaceous and shapelier. Even better, the body parts that are slimmer make your result more dramatic in comparison.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
The Brazilian butt lift procedure has risen in popularity over the past several years and requires surgeon skill and a keen eye to create smooth, shapelier results. Because this specialized procedure involves several steps, including liposuction, careful purification of the fat, and finally, precise injections to reach the desired result, the pricing can vary greatly. Where will the fat come from? How many areas are involved? How fuller do you desire to go? All of these are taken into consideration. The average cost for a Brazilian butt lift at our New Orleans plastic surgery office ranges between $6,000 – $20,000. Dr. Mizgala is a body contouring surgeon and creates gorgeous, natural results. After your consultation, if you decide this treatment is for you, we can discuss the various payment methods and low-interest financing options our office offers.
How long will my results last?
While some fat may be reabsorbed after the Brazilian butt lift, most of the fat will remain in your buttocks for a long time. To maintain your results, you should keep your weight steady since significant weight gain or loss will alter the results of your Brazilian butt lift.
How can I recover faster after a BBL?
If you want to minimize your healing time after a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Mizgala or a member of her team will give you post-operative instructions. You will need to avoid sitting on your butt for at least two weeks as the area heals. Dr. Mizgala recommends you buy a donut-shaped or nursing pillow that allows you to sit so the pressure is on your thighs instead of your butt. Short walks and light stretching can improve your blood circulation and decrease inflammation. A garment must be worn to shape the areas where the fat was taken, as well as mold the new buttock contour.
Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
The name of the surgery, Brazilian butt lift, is deceiving because it isn't actually a butt lift (gluteoplasty), which surgically removes excess skin from your butt. A Brazilian butt lift actually adds fat to your buttocks. However, the new volume added to your butt during a BBL may fill some loose skin. If you are concerned about moderate to severe excess skin in your buttocks, talk to Dr. Mizgala so she can go over all your options based on your goals and physical exam during your consultation.
A butt lift may be needed after major weight loss. This involves removing skin and tissue at the top of the buttock area, leaving a scar across the top, which can be easily hidden by undergarments or a swimsuit. A surgical butt lift may be combined with a fat transfer or a tummy tuck, known as a belt lipectomy.
