Growing tremendously in popularity, the Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks. This is achieved by administering injections of fatty tissue into the treatment area. Since no implants or other devices are used to add volume, many patients wonder how long the effects will last. Dr. Neal D. Goldberg, our extensively trained board certified plastic surgeon, utilizes the most advanced techniques available to help ensure the outcome can be enjoyed for many years—and potentially for life.
There are many factors that can influence how long your results will last after undergoing a Brazilian Butt Lift, including your genetics and your lifestyle. Additionally, how the harvested fatty tissue is processed and how it is placed will affect the duration of results. Everyone’s body and goals are unique, and Dr. Goldberg will discuss your customized treatment plan with you during your initial consultation.
The recovery period will be an essential part of achieving your desired outcome. In every Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, the body will absorb some of the fatty tissue. As a result, Dr. Goldberg will slightly overfill the treatment area to compensate for this effect. When the fat is first placed, it is very delicate. As a result, you must be very careful not to sit for extended periods or sleep on your back for the first several weeks, or until Dr. Goldberg approves.
If all goes well, you should expect the results to last as long as your weight remains stable. Weight gain and loss may modify the size and shape of the buttocks. Fat cells can increase or decrease in size, but they won’t multiply or disappear. Dr. Goldberg can provide additional information about what to expect with changes in weight during your consultation.
