There are any number of reasons your butt can lose its shape. If you have one that’s become flat, saggy or shapeless, you may want to look into a Brazilian butt lift. The Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness provides butt lift treatments for men and women in Greensboro, NC, Burlington, Winston-Salem, High Point, and the surrounding neighborhoods.
What is Involved in a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Sometimes called butt augmentation, a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is used to contour the buttocks, shaping them without the use of implants. It utilizes fat transfer, removing excess fat in one area of the body and injecting it into the buttocks in strategic places to form the desired shape.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in Greensboro, NC?
There are many variables that go into the cost of cosmetic procedures, including the complexity of the treatment and other factors that may affect the final cost, so estimations are difficult to make.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Contogiannis should be able to give you a more accurate cost assessment. Most cosmetic surgeries will not be covered by insurance, so it’s best to contact your provider to find out which procedures they will or will not provide coverage for.
Keeping our patient procedures as affordable as much as we can is very important to us. We’re proud to offer financing as an option for your Brazilian butt lift through Alphaeon® or CareCredit®.
How Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Work?
Butt augmentation is performed under general anesthesia. Fat will be suctioned from previously agreed-upon areas and processed, after which time the concentrated fat cells are injected strategically, carefully, and artistically into the buttocks. When the surgeon is pleased with the look and volume of the buttocks, incisions are closed and the procedure is finished.
What Are the Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A BBL is a transformative procedure and patients are usually delighted with their new backside. Besides the physical benefits, butt lifts can include emotional and mental benefits as well. Some common ones include:
- Twice as much body shaping – while the buttocks gain volume, the area of the fat transfer loses volume, looking more contoured
- Results are long-lasting
- Significant increase in self-image and self-confidence
- Enhanced body contours
- Clothes look better on, and you feel better about how you look
Am I a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
If you’re an adult in good health and are concerned by your saggy, shapeless bottom, you’re likely a great candidate for butt augmentation. It’s also important that you have at least some excess fat tissue on your body that can be transferred to the buttocks.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Contogiannis can help make sure you have realistic expectations about what a butt lift can do for you, and the results you can realistically anticipate.
What Can I Expect During Recovery Following a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The actual butt lift procedure can take anywhere from two to five hours. Pain is usually minimal to moderate, depending on your pain tolerance, and usually subsides substantially during the first week. Some swelling and bruising is also considered common.
Following the surgery, it’s usually three or four weeks before you’re able to return to normal activities. You’ll be cautioned against sitting or applying any pressure to the buttocks during this time, so you may not be able to resume work for a few weeks.
Dr. Contogiannis will give you post-op instructions following your procedure. For best recovery results, read and follow them as closely as possible.
