About The Brazilian Butt Lift
Providing a shapely and contoured posterior, Brazilian butt lift surgery is becoming one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the U.S. A Brazilian butt lift is a natural treatment option that helps patients attain a fuller and shapelier rear end without using an implant. Weight loss, aging, and genetics can cause a flat and unshapely butt. In today's times, a rounder, more voluptuous rear end is the preferred look. A Brazilian butt lift adds volume to the butt through a precise fat grafting and transfer process. To do this, Dr. Jerry Chidester, or Dr. Chiddy, utilizes liposuction to remove unwanted fat from different parts of your body. Once removed, Dr. Chiddy injects the fat into your backside. This process makes your rear end look shapelier and your figure tighter. When it comes to performing a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Chiddy uses an artistic perspective and his years of advanced training to provide beautiful results.

Is A Brazilian Butt Lift Right For You?
If you are considering a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Chiddy can perform an assessment to ensure this treatment works best for you. During your consultation, Dr. Chiddy will determine if you have enough fat to extract for the removal, grafting, and transfer process. For patients with a lighter bodyweight or an insufficient amount of fat to extract and purify, a Brazilian butt lift may not work well. Additionally, to undergo this procedure, you must have healthy skin elasticity. If your skin is loose, sagging, or wrinkled, a surgical butt lift may work better. This treatment option works best for patients who maintain a stable weight, possess fat to extract and transfer, and prefer to avoid using an implant.

How do we perform a BBL?
In most cases, anesthesia is used during a Brazilian butt lift. Considered an outpatient procedure, it takes about 2 – 3 hours to complete. The timing depends on how much fat is transferred and injected into the buttocks. During the procedure, Dr. Chiddy will start off by performing liposuction on certain parts of the body, such as the hips, abdomen, lower back, and thighs. Next, Dr. Chiddy safely extracts and purifies the fat in a centrifuge. Once processed, we will inject the fat into your buttocks and gently massage the skin so the surface appears even. Dr. Chiddy repeats this step multiple times until achieving the desired result.
Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ
How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
The total cost for your Brazilian butt lift (BBL) includes the cost of both liposuction and fat transfer surgery, facility fees, anesthesia, plus pre- and post-operative care. When Dr. Chiddy has created your BBL treatment plan, he can better estimate your costs. We want you to concentrate on choosing a plastic surgeon you feel comfortable with, like Dr. Chiddy, so we'll help make your BBL easy to afford. Our office takes several payment methods, and we can give you information on low-interest medical financing.
Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
If you want to increase the volume of your butt, you can choose butt augmentation using either silicone implants or fat grafting, which is commonly called a Brazilian butt lift. During your consultation, Dr. Chiddy will talk to you about both methods and help you decide which fits your physique and wants. He will also evaluate your body to decide which areas with excess fat need liposuction (typically the back, stomach, or thighs). You may not be a candidate for a BBL if your body fat percentage is too low.
How long will my results last?
Although a small amount of fat may be reabsorbed after the transfer, the majority of the fat cells will stay in your butt for many years. To maintain your results, you need to keep your weight steady because significant weight loss or gain will affect the results of your Brazilian butt lift. This is why Dr. Chiddy highly recommends you be at a healthy weight before your Brazilian butt lift so it is easy for you to stay at.
How can I recover faster after a BBL?
For a faster healing time after a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Chiddy or someone on his team will explain post-operative instructions and tips. You will need to avoid sitting on your butt for at least two weeks as the area heals. Dr. Chiddy recommends you have a donut-shaped or nursing pillow that allows you to sit with pressure placed on your legs instead of your butt. Short walks and light stretching can improve your blood circulation and decrease swelling. Dr. Chiddy might also recommend a special post-surgical massage to help your body heal.
Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
While it's called a Brazilian butt lift, this name is deceiving since it's not actually a butt lift, which removes excess skin from the buttocks. However, the new volume added to your butt during a BBL can fill some of the loose skin. For moderate or severe sagging skin in your butt, you may want a gluteoplasty with your Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Chiddy can discuss your options, depending on your goals and physical exam in your initial consultation.
What Should I Expect After a Brazilian Butt Lift?
After a Brazilian butt lift, patients can return home to heal. Because Dr. Chiddy performed liposuction on the body and placed the extracted fat into the buttocks, you will need to care for several treatment areas. Additionally, you will experience some discomfort and swelling near both treatment sites. For approximately two weeks, patients should not place any weight on the rear end. After the swelling has gone away, you will see noticeable results; however, for most patients, it takes about 4 – 6 weeks to see their entire results. Once your body has completely healed, the buttocks will appear shapelier, and your figure will look tighter because of the liposuction.
