Gluteal reshaping is quickly becoming one of the most desired plastic surgery procedures today. Known as a Brazilian butt lift or a fat transfer, this procedure involves liposuction to remove excess fat from one area of the body, and then transferring it to the buttock to result in rounder, fuller shape. The cosmetic surgeons of Prima Center for Plastic Surgery in Duluth, GA offers Duluth area men and women the opportunity to have a beautiful contour with this body contouring procedure.
"Dr. Philip Nakano has a genuine personality! Excellent bedside manners and cares a great deal about his patients. His facial procedures are beautiful! I trust him."- C.E. / Facebook / Aug 25, 2015
"Dr. Stephenson is a gem! It took several visits to other providers to find a physician that really took the time to listen which lead to proper testing, diagnosis and treatment. He is so personable, professional and great at what he does. He called me when referrals/recommendations were needed and consulted via phone with my other physicians to coordinate the best care for my case (which isn’t easy). During office visits I never felt rushed and all my questions were answered."- S.W. / Healthgrades / Aug 09, 2018
"Immediately upon arrival to the office, the staff was very receptive and warm. They identified me by name based on my appointment times, asked how I was and how my day was and then asked me to take a seat. Not one visit have I taken a seat in the waiting room and waited longer than 15 minutes. Very prompt with times and knowledgeable about all information related to the entire process. Very much understand what my time means to me. Love the office environment, the staff and for sure the doctor. Ursula is the bomb, love her!!! One of the best plastic surgeons, watched his work in the OR as a nurse and made the decision to let him do my procedure. I am very picky with who provide me care, he is the one who can all the time."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Aug 08, 2018

During the initial consultation, the cosmetic surgeons of Prima Center for Plastic Surgery will evaluate the body to make sure the patient is a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift. He will assess the areas to take the fat from, and make a determination if in fact there is enough fat to take to attain the results the patient desires. Depending on the amount of fat necessary to fill the buttocks area, multiple donor sites on the body may be considered. The best candidates for this procedure are those who demonstrate:
- Healthy skin tone (lack of sagging skin)
- A reasonable weight (as close to an ideal weight as possible)
- Localized excess fatty deposits on other areas of the body
- A flattened butt or lack of contour to the buttocks
What to Expect
During this procedure, which is performed under general anesthesia, the cosmetic surgeons of Prima Center for Plastic Surgery will use liposuction to suction fat from beneath the skin from the donor areas discussed before surgery. Liposuction can be performed on the abdomen, back, love handles, hips, and/or inner and outer thighs. A solution containing local anesthetic and tumescent fluid is introduced beneath the areas of excess fat. This helps increases patient comfort and minimizes bruising. A very precise and controlled removal of fluid and fat is accomplished. The fat is then prepared and transferred in a precise manner to the buttocks to improve its contour and size. An important part of this procedure is the preservation of the fat that has been removed so that it is harvested in a closed sterile system and thus never exposed to air. The cosmetic surgeons of Prima Center for Plastic Surgery use a closed fat collection system to help sterilize the tissue and separate the unhealthy fat deposits from the healthy fat so that the result is smooth, lasting outcome.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
Patients are released from our outpatient surgical center wearing a compression garment to help with swelling and bruising. This garment also works to help the overlying tissues adapt to its new contour. Protection of the transferred fat is important, therefore sitting directly on the buttocks is avoided for up to 3-4 weeks after a fat transfer surgery. Patients are able to return to very modest duties in 2-3 weeks, with a complete recovery in about 6-8 weeks.
A Brazilian butt lift procedure takes into account two aspects, the first being liposuction, the second being the transplantation process. The average cost can vary between $4,000 to $7,000. This depends on how many areas are used for liposuction to get the required volume of fat. A detailed price and treatment plan is discussed during the initial consultation.
