Individuals seeking rounder, shapelier buttocks may consider a butt enhancement procedure to achieve these results. If you have excellent skin tone on the buttocks, a Brazilian butt lift at Austin Plastic Surgery Institute may be a good option. This newly popular procedure, by our board-certified plastic surgeons at Austin PSI, transfers harvested fat from one area of the body through liposuction, and then injects it into the buttocks for a rounder, fuller appearance. Patients with loose skin may not be suitable candidates for this procedure, and a surgical butt lift may be necessary. A deflated, flat bottom can be caused by a number of factors, including weight loss, aging, and gravity.

"Dr. William Gorman is phenomenal surgeon. He has always been honest and upfront with me about everything especially regarding the procedure that I was interested in including the negatives, but encouraging at the same time. Dr. Gorman's confidence gave me confidence so I moved forward with my surgery. My surgery went more than well. My recovery was such a smooth transition and that was because of Margaret, whom is the office manager and also nurse for Dr. Gorman. Margaret understood what I was feeling and experiencing, physically and emotionally. Overall, my experience with Dr. Gorman, Margaret, his staff and most importantly the procedure was perfect."- N.S. / Google / May 06, 2017
"Wow! I had amazing results from Lauren at ASPI Skin Care Clinic, who did Botox and a couple of different fillers Lauren has an exceptional ability to assess what I needed and she understood exactly what I told her I was looking to achieve. At first I was a bit concerned that I wouldn't be able to communicate what I wanted, but I was extremely happy with how well Lauren understood and I ended up with exactly what I wanted. She is skilled with precision and has a very gentle approach. I would highly recommend Lauren."- S.C. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2017

During the initial consultation, the body will be assessed so that it can be determined where to perform liposuction in order to extract the necessary amount of fat needed to perform the transfer. Multiple donor sites may be considered. The fat will be removed and grafted for a healthy, effective transfer. It will then be injected through a syringe into the buttocks. This process will take place over several steps, and many layers may be used until the desired result is achieved. The incisions from a Brazilian butt lift are very small and thus scarring after the procedure is minimal.
A Brazilian butt lift is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete depending on how many donor sites are used and how many layers it takes to achieve the desired fullness. Following surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas as well as on the buttocks. Patients will find it difficult to sit, but are encouraged to do so once the swelling has subsided. It will take about 3 full months for the body to recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs@headingTag>
If the injections are done correctly, the result will look and feel natural. During the procedure, additional liposuction may be used to help smooth out uneven skin, as well as ensure that the surface has a correct and even contour. It is important to find a reputable and highly-skilled surgeon with a special expertise in performing the Brazilian butt lift surgery.
Fat Transfer or Implants?@headingTag>
Both techniques are commonly used by cosmetic surgeons and can achieve good results. Some patients simply do not want a foreign device in their body and feel that the fat transfer method is safe and natural. A disadvantage of fat transfers, however, is that they may not last as long as an implant. Some of the injected fat will absorb naturally into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique during the consultation so the right decision can be made.
Weight gain could compromise the results of the surgery. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
