Brazilian Butt Lift Houston

Brazilian butt lift procedure by Memorial Plastic Surgery in Houston, Texas.

When persistent exercise isn’t enough to give a woman the shape she wants, a Brazilian Butt Lift is a natural choice. The procedure is preferred over implants due to the resulting “natural” and “perky” appearance of the buttocks post-surgery. If you are looking for a more youthful butt, this procedure is for you.

Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Butt Implants

Implants much like those used in breast augmentation are used in a standard butt implant procedure. Implants are generally recommended for women who have naturally tiny frames or who have too little fat in the midsection. The Brazillian Butt Lift uses fat that is liposuctioned from another part of the body and injected into the buttocks to create a fuller, perkier appearance. Because it uses the body’s natural tissues, this procedure is often preferred by surgeons and patients alike.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Process & Donor Areas

The procedure begins with liposuction of the designated donor areas surrounding the butt, particularly the stomach, thighs, and lower back (360 liposuction). Once the fat is removed it is cleaned and purified, then injected into the buttocks at varying levels above the muscle. Results are often very long-lasting and extremely satisfying.

BMI Preferences

The ideal body max index for a Brazilian Butt Lift is between 26 – 29; however, it must be stressed that this figure is a loose guideline. During the consultation, patients will be advised if weight gain or weight loss is needed prior to surgery.

Surgical Time and Recovery

Depending on the invasiveness of the procedure and the amount of fat harvested and transferred, the total surgery time will be between 3 – 4 hours. During the recovery process, patients are advised to rest for 3 weeks to avoid swelling and attain the best results possible.

After Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

To achieve the most long-lasting results it is recommended that you avoid direct pressure (sitting) on the buttocks for approximately three weeks. Swelling could be a problem up to six weeks, though patients are given a special garment to wear for the first two weeks in order to help reduce the swelling. Patients may resume normal activities after four weeks, while being able to return to work (light duty recommended) as soon as two weeks after the procedure.

Costs of a Brazilian Butt Lift

Before undergoing a Brazilian Butt Lift, patients must schedule a consultation with Dr. Patrick Hsu and Dr. Kendall Roehl. The consultation costs $100 and can be done in person at our clinic or online through FaceTime, Skype or Facebook Messenger.
The average cost of the procedure is $10, 990. It is worth noting that the total costs vary due to the extensiveness of the procedure and the amount of fat that must be harvested in order to successfully perform a Brazilian Butt Lift. Additionally, patients may use any of our personal financing options through Prosper and Care Credit.

Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

A brazilian butt lift has a lower risk of infection when using the fast transfer method. Additionally, the area that was liposuctioned is leaner, which then provides women with a profile that is more sensual. This type of butt augmentation gives women a more natural and attractive look, which is why many prefer it over the implant procedure.
