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. Song is simply the best!!! There are not enough words to describe how amazing he is! I work for a surgeon so I look at every single detail at other facilities. The office was always spotless. They are always on time...I never had to wait (even when I was late) I was always in and out. Stacy, Adriana, Kate, Michelle and others were all the sweetest in the world. I had no issues whatsoever. Whenever I called or emailed I always got a response immediately. Dr. Song is quiet, but he goes out of his way to keep his patients happy.

"Back in June of 2012 I accompanied a friend who was having a procedure done to Prima. During the consult and the surgery I was so impressed with the office and doctors that i joked around with having BA here if I ever had the courage to do it. Well, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in Feb 2013. It wasn't how I wanted to come to this office but when my surgeon handed me Dr Song's card, I laughed. God always has a plan. What are the odds?? He has been the most amazing doctor. Not many doctors have the bedside manner he does. A diamond in the rough! In April of this year, my son had a horrible motorcycle accident on home from military leave. Three open fractures of femur, tibia and fibula They were talking amputation of his left leg. Dr.Min (orthopedic dr) performed three surgeries and the leg was still trying to give up. He called me suggesting plastic surgery and a specific procedure that would possibly save his leg. I wanted Dr Song to do the surgery but knew his schedule was so busy that it probably wasn't an option so I didn't suggest it. Dr Min called me with a doctors name for me to research and guess who it was??? Dr Song! I cried mama tears for sure! Literally crying writing this review. With the help of these two doctors I can proudly say he has defied all odds put in front of him. He has been released to full duty and his leg is fully healed. I do not have enough words to express how Dr Song has touched our lives. He literally saved us both. We will be forever grateful!"- K.M. / Google / Feb 01, 2019

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.
