Brazilian Butt Lift in Parker County

When you are not satisfied with the shape of your body and want to increase the fullness and roundness of your buttocks while improving the balance of your silhouette, you might consider a Brazilian butt lift (BBL).

The shape and form of your buttocks are determined mainly by genetics. Your buttocks can still appear flat even when you improve the underlying muscle through exercise. Some people consider a Brazilian butt lift to change how their clothes fit, balance their figure, or reduce fat pockets.

A Brazilian butt lift in Parker County can help you change how your buttocks look using a body contouring procedure that is safer and more natural looking than implants. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew H. Steele performs Brazilian butt lifts in an accredited outpatient surgery center, where you are surrounded by our expert medical team of healthcare professionals.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a buttock augmentation that changes the shape and size of your buttocks, but it is not a traditional lift procedure like you would think of on a facelift or a breast lift.

When you want to add volume and improve any sagging or excess skin, you should consider a butt lift. During a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Steele uses liposuction to remove fat deposits from other areas of your body. The fat is processed and then injected into areas in your buttocks to create a more rounded and fuller appearance.

After recovery, your buttocks are bigger and evenly shaped, and the areas of your body where liposuction was used to remove the fat will have a smaller and smoother contour. The effects of a Brazilian butt lift are permanent but may be affected by weight changes and natural aging over time.

Your body will continue to change as you get older, affecting the results over time. The best way to protect and preserve the effects of a Brazilian butt lift in Parker County is to maintain a consistent, healthy weight.

Who Is a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift have achieved their goal weight because any significant weight gain or loss can negatively affect the results. You should be in generally good health and must have good control over any chronic medical conditions.

During recovery, you must be able to avoid sitting or lying on your back for several weeks. To be considered for a Brazilian butt lift in Parker County, your body should have finished developing, which typically means you are 18 years or older.  A good candidate must also have enough body fat on other areas of the body to be used, or you may need to consider implants.

What Happens During a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Before the procedure, Dr. Steele will evaluate your general health, including pre-existing conditions and prescription medication or over-the-counter supplements you take.

The best place to harvest fat using liposuction will also be determined based on existing fat deposits. When only a small amount of fat is going to be used, you may be able to have the procedure using only local anesthesia.

Liposuction will be used to remove excess fat from other areas of your body, such as your hips, inner thighs, outer thighs, and abdomen. In total, it usually requires 1 500-1000cc of fat for each buttock.

Following the procedure, a compression garment is placed to help reduce bleeding and swelling. You will stay in our recovery room until you are fully awake and ready to go home. After a surgical procedure, you must have a friend or family member drive you home. You must also have someone stay with you for at least the first 24 hours.

It can take up to a week to feel like yourself again and you will have activity restrictions for about a month and swelling for about 3 months. During this time, you can reduce the risk of postoperative complications by closely following Dr. Steele’s instructions when you go home. These include how to take care of your incisions, how long to stay off your buttocks, activity level, and the need to eat a high-protein diet to help your body heal.
