BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT
What You Should Know About the Procedure
With his extensive experience in performing body-contouring procedures, Dr. Moein performs butt augmentation and butt lift
surgery in a comfortable, safe, and effective manner. The main goal of these procedures is to increase & improve the size and appearance of your buttocks. If you need more volume in your butt, you will need buttock augmentation – with either implants or fat grafting to make it more rounded. But if you have significant sagging skin, then the sagging skin needs to be addressed with a lift procedure. Often, a butt lift is combined with an augmentation procedure, utilizing fat or an implant in order to restore the shape and contour of the butt. Sometimes, the patient’s own tissue can be repurposed and transferred to create more distinct contours. This is commonly referred to as auto-augmentation. The butt lift procedure can also be combined with a thigh lift procedure to help improve the texture of your skin for a seamless transition from your legs to your butt. Dr. Moein of Moein Surgical Arts will recommend the most safe and effective approach to meet your goals based on your ideal shape and overall health.
What Is Fat Grafting?
In many cases, the surgery is performed through fat grafting. This fat transfer method is what coined the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery name. Since this method involves using the patient’s own tissue as opposed to injections or implants, it is a widely popular procedure. The basic advantage of this approach is that it reduces the risk of rejection from the patient’s body, and minimizes chance of infection as it utilizes your own natural fat and tissue. During the procedure, Dr. Moein will obtain fat from other areas of your body through liposuction. This technique has the benefit of giving more shapely appearance to your buttocks by reducing fat in the donor sites, which is often in the waist and lower back. To minimize the risk of scarring, Dr. Moein uses tiny incisions to perform liposuction and to inject the fat. The goal of this procedure is to remove extra fat from unwanted sites and inject it into new locations in order to achieve the desired results.

Why Use Body Fat?
Fat can be removed and grafted from the following areas for your BBL:
- Hips (Love Handles)
The unwanted fat from these areas will act as a donor to your rear end. Your own body fat is the most natural, and apt material to help improve your derrière's shape and feel. It is also the least likely substance or material to be rejected by your body, which makes it the safest approach. The Brazilian butt lift procedure has many aesthetic benefits as it not only enhances your butt, but also slims down the areas of where your fat is taken from. You can think of it as a complete body transformation.

How Do Butt Implants Work?
If you have minimal fat in other areas of your body then butt implants are the right choice for you. Implants are yet another popular option to improve your butt's appearance. This surgery is a powerful method at increasing the size and enhancing the contour of your buttocks. Dr. Moein will perform this procedure by creating a small incision at the top of the buttock crease. Butt implants are most commonly placed right beneath the muscle covering. If you have any concerns or questions about the surgery, you can always discuss them with Dr. Moein.
What Is The Difference Between A Brazilian Butt Lift And Butt Implants?
To be generalize, a Brazilian butt lift uses the patient's own fat from other areas of the body to be used in enhancing their buttocks. Butt implants involve using silicon filled products to be placed into the area of the buttocks. Typically, the Brazilian butt lift is the preferred and recommended route, but for patients who do not have sufficient fat storage typically have to opt for the implants route.
Ideal Candidates For A BBL
Great candidates for a Brazilian butt lift should:
-Be in good general health.
-Have realistic expectations of their results.
-Must have enough fat in other areas to be harvested and transferred.
-Have good skin elasticity.
How Long Does It Take To Recover From The Surgery?
It should take around a week before you can return to work after butt lift surgery. But, make sure that you only engage in light activity jobs for the first 20-30 days that are not too taxing. Pain medication is prescribed for about 3-5 days to reduce any discomfort following the surgery. General swelling and soreness in the treated areas is normal and expected. During this crucial healing phase, Dr. Moein can offer invaluable guidance and advice to help speed up your recovery. Remember, it can take up to four to six weeks before you experience that “back-to-normal” feeling. But, the good part is that you can expect to sit down comfortably after your butt lift surgery. You will be given a special compression garment that should be worn for around a month and a half following the surgery. In addition to minimizing swelling, this garment will make sure that the grafted fat or butt implants remain in the right position as you recover from the surgery.
Are There Any Risks Involved?
You’ll be relieved to know that butt augmentation and butt lift surgery are safe and effective procedures. Like any surgical procedure, the procedures are associated with some risks and complications. But, the risks are few and can be minimized if your surgeon uses meticulous surgical techniques and sound judgment. Most common risk is fluid collection and to minimize this problem you will have a temporary drain tube that will be removed few days post surgery after implant operations. Many patients wonder if they will be able to comfortably sit down after the surgery. Well, there is absolutely no problem with sitting immediately after the surgery as long as you reduce the amount of time sitting for at least a week. However, you will have no problem with sitting for the rest of your life. If you’ve undergone butt lift surgery through implants, you will have to wear a compression garment for around a month following the surgery. Often, patients worry about the safety of buttock implants. Well, these FDA-approved implants are very safe. Moreover, they are composed of solid silicone elastomers, which means that the implants will not leak, burst or break.
