Hi there- I think it's important to realize that the appearance you would like to achieve may not require a 6 inch increase in your hips (which I agree would be extraordinary), but might be possible through the change in the relationships between your waist, abdomen, and hips. In a Brazilian Butt Lift, it is often possible to make the buttocks look even more full through the suction and... READ MORE
Infection. If your surgeon's instruments were not properly sterilized or if you fail to clean your wounds as instructed, your incisions or injection sites may become infected. You should call your surgeon immediately if you experience persistent redness, discomfort, fever, green or yellow drainage, or a foul smell from the surgical area. If your tissue is infected, your surgeon will likely need to clean it and you will probably need to take antibiotic medications (or increase your dosage if you are already using these drugs, which many surgeons prescribe as a preventive measure).

After the liposuction, the fat cells are processed and purified through centrifugation (intensified spinning). The best and most pure fat cells are separated and used for reinjection into the buttocks. It is common for only ¼ of the fat cells to be utilized for reinjection. Most doctors like to perform liposuction on at least two or three major areas in order to collect enough fat. Our Brazilian Butt Lift doctors remove the fat cells, purify the tissues, and then re-inject only the best cells back into the buttocks.


A great question that comes up often.  A breast reduction will both reduce the breast size and improve the shape of the breast while lifting it.  During this surgery, breast tissue is removed while preserving the tissue around the nipple.  The breast is then shaped and nipple placed in a higher, more ideal position.  This is essentially the breast lift component of this surgery.  With the reduction, we are accomplishing both. Hope this helps. 

Where you have your butt lift surgery. Due to regional price differences, the cost of butt lift surgery can vary depending on the city in which it is performed. Some patients may choose to travel to a different plastic surgeon for their butt lift to lower costs or work with a more qualified doctor. In this case, you will need to weigh travel expenses into the cost of surgery.


It is also possible for implants to rupture and leak. If saline implants rupture, the saline will be safely absorbed by the body. A silicone leak may stay inside the implant shell or leak outside of the shell. When a saline implant ruptures, it will deflate. But silicone breast implants may cause no obvious symptoms when they rupture. This is called silent rupture.

The BBL surgery not only enhances the buttocks, but it can also improve the overall contour of different areas of the body through liposuction. Most patients choose to have liposuction on the most troubling areas such as the abdomen, hips, back and thighs. Removing fat from these areas immediately reshapes the body creating an hourglass figure. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Fisher of expands on the benefits of the fat transfer procedure by stating:


Examine your body, particularly your hips, abdomen, and buttocks. If you are pursuing a traditional butt lift, your surgeon will assess the amount of excess skin, fat, and tissue you have. If you are interested in a Brazilian butt lift, he or she will look for an appropriate area to perform liposuction. In addition, your doctor will look at your overall shape and proportion to determine how to perform your butt lift for natural, beautiful results. This process also gives you the opportunity to point out specific problem areas and your goals.
Fillers, such as Restylane Silk (my preferred filler for fine lip lines), fill in the wrinkle from below. Dermabrasion and laser resurfacing both work by blending the wrinkles in with the surrounding “normal” skin. Consult with a local cosmetic surgeon who is experienced with correction of smoker’s lines!. (Clyde Mathison, MD, Knoxville Facial Plastic Surgeon)
Gently get out of bed as soon as possible after your surgery. When you get up, sit with your legs hanging over the edge of the bed or chair for a few minutes before standing. This will help avoid problems with dizziness, light-headedness and fainting. Do not use your arms or upper body to push yourself out of a bed or chair. You may roll to your side and then sit up or stand up. Have an adult assist you the bathroom the first few times. Always get out of bed to go to the bathroom. Begin to walk as much as possible as soon as you can after surgery. Do take it easy the first few days. Do not exert yourself in any strenuous activity. Avoid strenuous activities that involve arm movement such as raising your arms over your head and lifting with your arms. A balance of rest and reduced activity will speed up your recovery.
After the procedure, patients are taken to the recovery room for a few hours and then released from the facility. Patients must come with a friend or family member in order to be driven home and cared for at all times during the first three days after surgery. If the patient does not have a friend or family in the area, for an additional cost, Jolie offers recovery houses for patients who have undergone a procedure.
You may have heard of dermabrasion, a procedure that sands away the top layer of skin. It can treat severe sun damage, but it causes bleeding and needs a week of recovery time. Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical option. Often called a "power peel," it blasts the skin with tiny crystals that exfoliate the outer layer. This can reduce fine lines, brown spots, and mild acne scars -- usually with little recovery time.
