Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift with Dr. Subbio

Dr. Subbio is able to lift and/or augment the buttocks through a variety of procedures. These can involve transferring unwanted fat from other areas such as the abdomen and thighs through liposuction techniques (aka, the “Brazilian Butt Lift”), or perhaps removing skin at the waist area to pull the buttocks into a more elevated and aesthetic position. Regardless of the technique, Dr. Subbio has the artistic eye to give you natural, beautiful results.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ's

Any of the following might cause you to consider a Brazilian Butt Lift:

  • A flat bottom
  • Sagging buttocks
  • An asymmetrical butt shape
  • A desire for a more curvaceous bottom

Body builders sometimes have this procedure in order to improve body proportion for competition.

Yes. A Brazilian Butt Lift usually requires general anesthesia.

A Brazilian Butt Lift is generally achieved through fat grafting. Essentially, excess fat in one area where you don’t want it is harvested and injected into your buttocks. Liposuction is used to harvest the fat tissue, usually from the abdomen and/or thighs. Only small, discreet incisions in the abdomen or inner thighs are made, and a tube called a cannula is inserted. The cannula is attached to a suction device that removes the fat.

The fat is then purified and treated in a centrifuge, after which it is injected into the buttocks to give them a lifted, fuller shape. Dr. Subbio uses his experience as an artist to virtually sculpt the buttocks.

Another buttock lift method involves inserting implants that are usually made of silicone. These are inserted through incisions in the lower crease of the buttocks. The fat grafting method is preferred by most patients, however.

You’ll be anesthetized during your surgery, so you’ll feel no pain. All surgeries involve some discomfort after the anesthesia wears off, though. Most people find that the discomfort after a Brazilian Butt Lift is less than they expected, and we’ll give you pain medication to help you get through your recovery as easily as possible. Plus, you can text or call Dr. Subbio at any time with your questions!

Definitely! Dr. Subbio is dedicated to making sure you recover as easily as possible with excellent results.

You can expect some bruising after a Brazilian Butt Lift, but it usually goes away quickly.

There are scars from the Liposuction, but Dr. Subbio will make the incisions in discreet areas of the abdomen and/or thighs. Over time, whatever scars are present will flatten, fade, and become less noticeable.

For the most part, yes, but residual swelling may not fully resolve for three months, preventing you from seeing your final results.

Some patients also opt to have a Tummy Tuck for a more comprehensive lower body makeover. A Tummy Tuck must be performed separately from your Brazilian Butt Lift, however.

Absolutely! During your consultation, Dr. Subbio will ask you what bothers you about the way you look. Then, he’ll tell you if a Brazilian Butt Lift will give you the results you’re after, and he’ll explain what you can expect. He’ll even hand-draw you a projected result right in the office!

No. A Brazilian Butt Lift is an outpatient procedure, so after a short period of recovery time, you can go home the same day, provided you have someone available to drive you home.

The Liposuction portion of the surgery removes the fatty tissue that is used to improve the shape of the buttocks.

The surgery usually takes 2-3 hours.

Sitting will be uncomfortable for a few days, and you will wear a compression garment for a few weeks. You will be able to walk the next day, but please take it easy.

You can expect some swelling, bruising, and a feeling of tightness for about two weeks. Sutures will either dissolve on their own, or we’ll remove them about a week after your surgery.

You may have some slight residual numbness in the buttock area for a few months.

Most people go back to work within 7-14 days.

We ask that you refrain from strenuous exercise or heavy lifting for about 6 weeks.

You will want to sleep carefully on your stomach for about a week.

Your Brazilian Butt Lift results are permanent.

We think there are several reasons! Here are just a few:

  • He gives all his patients his cell phone number. He’ll call you the night after your surgery to check on you, as well as the next morning. And he’ll make sure your recovery is as comfortable as possible.
  • He’s a trained artist, and you’re his canvas. It’s the perfect marriage of science and artistry. In fact, he’ll hand-draw his projected results right in front of you during your consultation.
  • He’s fun! He likes to joke with his patients and put them at ease. Plus, we maintain a small office where we treat our patients like a part of the family.
  • He won’t try to convince you to have a procedure that isn’t best for you. He’d rather lose your business than sign you up for a procedure he isn’t 100% behind. And if he thinks you need a procedure he doesn’t offer, he’ll recommend a different surgeon for you.
