Brazilian Butt Lift in Macon, GA

No ifs, ands or “butts” about it, having a round, shapely behind is what’s in fashion. While some women were blessed with a perfectly perky posterior, others — particularly thin women — spend hours in the gym doing squats and still aren’t able to achieve the look they want. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua R. Groves of the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery can give your bottom a boost with a Brazilian Butt Lift. If you reside in Macon, Warner Robins or in the Bibb or Houston County area, please contact us today to schedule a consultation.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a plastic surgery procedure designed to lift, reshape and augment the buttocks. Some women may notice that as they age, their buttocks begins to droop and lose its firmness. This is a natural part of the aging process. Other women just weren’t born with the curves they would like. Whatever the cause of your concerns, a Brazilian Butt Lift can give you a more prominent and shapely posterior — one that better balances your figure.

How Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?

The most common method of performing a Brazilian Butt Lift involves removing fat from other areas of the body using liposuction, purifying the fat cells and then injecting the fat into the gluteal area using special instruments. The fat is injected at various depths and in various areas of the buttocks to ensure the highest permanent rate of absorption.

Some butt lift procedures involve the use of butt implants. Dr. Groves will determine the best option for you, which will be discussed at your consultation.

Whichever method is chosen, you can expect an uplifted, more curvaceous bottom.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

If you are very thin, without enough fat to transfer to your buttocks, you may not be a suitable candidate for the procedure that uses fat grafting. You may be asked to gain a few pounds, or you might consider butt implants.

In general, patients with the requisite amount of fat, who are in good health, don’t smoke, have serious underlying medical conditions or take medications or herbal supplements that would increase bleeding are likely good candidates for the procedure.

Dr. Groves is the best person to determine whether a Brazilian Butt Lift is right for you. After an evaluation and a review of your medical history, Dr. Groves will discuss your options with you.

What Will My Recovery Be Like After a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Dr. Groves will explain what to expect after your Brazilian Butt Lift before you undergo the procedure. It’s important to follow his directions completely to ensure that you get the best long-term results.

You will not be permitted to sit directly on your buttocks for approximately three weeks. Instead, you will be required to sit on a special pillow that minimizes pressure on the area.

You will also be required to wear a special compression garment that will help minimize swelling. This garment should be worn full-time for a minimum of two weeks. Swelling should be gone by six weeks.

Expect to be out of work for at least two weeks. Most people are able to resume normal activities in approximately four weeks post-surgery.

Following these protocols and any additional post-procedure directions supplied by Dr. Groves allows your body to heal more quickly and helps ensure that you receive the most benefit from your Brazilian Butt Lift.

How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?
