If you’ve ever wished you could use some of your body’s extra fat to fill out your bottom, the Brazilian butt lift is the procedure you’ve been looking for. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Carlisle performs Brazilian butt lift surgery (BBL) in West Des Moines for those from Ankeny, Ames, Davenport, and beyond who want to use their own fat to enhance their backside.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift, also called buttock augmentation, is a body contouring procedure using fat transfer. During the procedure, a plastic surgeon performs liposuction to remove fat from one area of the body (often the abdomen, thighs, hips, or back) and injects it into the buttocks to create a fuller, more rounded look.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in Des Moines, IA?
The price of a Brazilian butt lift at our West Des Moines plastic surgery practice starts at $5,100 and varies from person to person. The best way to determine your individual pricing is to discuss your goals with Dr. Carlisle during a private consultation.
What Is Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery Like?
Most people return to desk work after about 2 weeks and resume exercise in 4 to 6 weeks following a BBL. For the first few weeks, you will need to avoid sitting on your buttocks, or you can sit on a special donut pillow as the fat settles into place.
How Long Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Last?
Over the first few months following your BBL, your body will metabolize some of the initial fat injected, leaving you with natural-looking, full curves. Barring any major fluctuations in your body weight, your results should last for good.
