Enjoy a Fuller, More Curvaceous Rear with a Brazilian Butt Lift

A full and shapely rear can enhance your figure and boost your confidence. If you have lost volume in your buttocks, or you have a naturally flat rear end, you may benefit from a Brazilian butt lift at our Darien, CT, practice.

Dr. David Passaretti, M.D., F.A.C.S., an expert at performing this procedure, will use your own excess fat deposits to create a plumper, fuller bottom. After performing liposuction on another area of your body, the doctor will inject fat cells into your rear. Following treatment, you may enjoy a more defined and youthful figure that will last for years to come.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a minimally invasive procedure that can have dramatic effects on your overall appearance. To perform this treatment, Dr. Passaretti will first perform liposuction. Common treatment areas include the abdomen and thighs. By reducing fat in these areas near the buttocks, liposuction can help further define your rear.

Once he has removed unwanted fat, Dr. Passaretti will place cells in a centrifuge to isolate and purify them. Then he will inject fat into the buttocks at varying depths to improve the absorption rate and to achieve a subtle, rounded look.

Dr. Passaretti is highly experienced in performing this procedure and can help you achieve a fuller, more perky buttocks to enhance your figure.

Are You a Candidate for a Butt Lift?

You may be an ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift if:

  • You feel that your rear end is flat or undefined
  • You have lost volume in your rear because of age or significant weight loss
  • You have generally good health with no history of blood disorders or autoimmune diseases
  • You are at a stable, healthy weight, and are not planning to lose weight in the future

Dr. Passaretti will conduct a complete consultation to determine your candidacy for a butt lift.

The Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian butt lifts have several advantages over other types of enhancements, such as butt implants. First, because the procedure utilizes your own fat to augment your figure, there is no risk that your body will reject the cells. In addition, this minimally invasive procedure offers reduced discomfort and a faster recovery time. Finally, because Dr. Passaretti will perform liposuction on other parts of your body, the treatment will enhance your overall figure. 

A study found that over 70 percent of grafted fat stayed in place over a long period following butt augmentation.

After treatment, you can enjoy a fuller, more proportionate rear, and greater confidence that may positively impact many different areas of your life. The technique can achieve incredibly natural-looking effects, including:

  • Smooth contours
  • Natural-looking curves
  • No bumps or lumps

With the transferred fat in place, you can have more pronounced curves and an overall more contoured silhouette that can last for a long time with proper care. In fact, a study completed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that over 70 percent of grafted fat stayed in place over a long period following butt augmentation.

Preparing for Surgery

During your consultation, Dr. Passaretti will assess your areas of concern and determine how to achieve the most natural-looking, proportionate results. If you have an athletic build, you may choose to accentuate the roundness of your rear by placing fat at the sides. Adding fat to the central and upper regions of your rear can improve lift and perkiness while addressing flatness or sagging. Every surgery is tailored to your areas of concern, as well as desired curvature and volume.

Patients should be in good overall health leading up to the procedure. It is also important to keep in mind that because a Brazilian butt lift is not a weight loss surgery, patients should already be close to their ideal weight.

On the Day of Your Appointment

Prior to beginning your procedure, Dr. Passaretti will place you under general anesthesia or IV sedation so you can sleep during the procedure. However, you will need a trusted friend or family member to drive you home after surgery. You should plan to take two to three weeks off work to recover most effectively.

Graphic of the recovery process: week one to six months.
Recovery is typically split into several distinct stages. While patients can return to their normal routine soon after surgery, it can take up to six months to completely heal. 

Recovery  following the Procedure

Recovery after a Brazilian butt lift typically lasts two to six months, but your timeline will ultimately depend upon your unique rate of healing. After surgery, Dr. Passaretti can provide you with detailed instructions to promote recovery, in addition to compression bandages and medication to reduce swelling and ease discomfort. Throughout your Brazilian butt lift recovery, it is important to avoid strenuous exercise and use a donut pillow while you sleep and drive for optimal support. During your consultation, Dr. Passaretti can recommend appropriate modifications to your daily post-surgery routines, so you can properly prepare for your recovery.

Immediate Aftercare

After surgery, you may experience some discomfort at the site where liposuction was performed. However, most bruising and swelling will be localized around your buttocks and should subside within a few days.

We also recommend taking short and gentle walks around your house to stimulate healing and prevent constipation, which is a common side effect. During the first few days of recovery, you may also notice a small amount of fluid draining from the surgical sites. This is normal and not cause for alarm. We can demonstrate the proper way to care for your wounds and place special bandages.

Recovery Overview

A full butt lift recovery will usually take two to six months. During the first week, you should get plenty of rest. You may wish to ask a friend or loved one to stay with you and assist with daily chores and driving. You can resume easy to moderate physical activities in about a month. However, you should avoid strenuous exercise such as running, squatting, and heavy lifting. During the first month, you should also refrain from taking baths and visiting saunas or swimming pools. Dr. Passaretti can provide specific guidelines, depending upon your rate of healing and your regular workout routine.

A full butt lift recovery will usually take two to six months. 

Typically, you will need to wear compression garments for the full eight weeks of recovery. These will help the fat graft areas to heal smoothly and naturally, while minimizing swelling. During this period, you will not be able to sit or lie directly on your buttocks. While sleeping, you should lie on your side. While sitting, you should use a donut pillow. Though you will typically be able to drive in a few weeks, you should use a donut pillow in the car, as well. When the recovery process is complete, you can enjoy a more supple, voluptuous appearance.
