Brazilian Butt Lift In Houston


Introduction to

Brazilian Butt Lift

There are many ways to enhance your features, and depending on the techniques and materials used, some can produce some “unnatural” results. Aside from spending hours in the gym obsessively working towards a realistically enhanced look, there are also cosmetic enhancement options, both surgical and non-surgical.

The beauty about Brazilian Butt Lift procedures in Houston is that they can create larger, more rounded, and natural-looking buttocks using fat tissue removed from your own body, so you don’t have to worry about some of the riskier side effects that come from other artificial options. To learn more about the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure we offer at Avante Plastic Surgery, please keep reading below.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift procedure (BBL) is a very popular buttock augmentation cosmetic surgery, especially more recently when women are actively looking to achieve a larger butt. This procedure uses your own fat cells that have been removed from your body through liposuction and are purified and concentrated, and inserted into strategic areas of your buttocks. This is a technique that is also referred to as fat grafting. The combination of these two techniques not only gives you a more shapely backside but can also improve the contours of your body.

In addition to an improvement in self-esteem, our Houston Brazilian Butt Lift patients have experienced the following benefits from their procedure:

  • A natural look and feel
  • Cellulite is less visible
  • Clothing becomes more flattering
  • Fast results
  • Improved body balances
  • Less chance of infection
  • Procedure is safe
  • Reduced pockets of fat in other areas of your body

What’s the first step for a

Brazilian Butt Lift

The first step in getting a Brazilian Butt Lift in Houston includes having a detailed consultation at Avante Plastic Surgery. When you come in for your appointment, you will meet with your cosmetic surgeon Dr. Ahmadi and discuss your medical history, lifestyle, and any expectations you have regarding the treatment. You may even request to see some Brazilian butt lift videos of Dr. Ahmadi discussing the procedure or photos of our previous patients’ surgery and results.

It’s very important to be open and honest with your provider when having these conversations. We understand that there may be embarrassment or some level of discomfort when discussing your goals, but the more information you provide, the more efficient Dr. Ahmadi can be to help you achieve positive results and avoid unnecessary risks.

Dr. Ahmadi will make you a personalized surgical plan, and if you agree with it, our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your procedure date. You will also be provided with a list of directions to follow before your Brazilian Butt Lift, which can include asking that you stop taking medications that increase bleeding (i.e. aspirin, specific supplements, and anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen).

What to Expect on the Day of a Brazilian Butt Lift

On the day of your Houston Brazillian Butt Lift surgery, you will first be administered general anesthesia for a more comfortable cosmetic procedure. Dr. Ahmadi will begin by using Liposuction to remove excess fat for your gluteal fat grafting, which is unwanted fat obtained from the abdomen, flanks, back, outer thighs, or upper arms.

The purified fat is placed in a centrifuge to turn it into a higher fat concentration so it can be placed back into your lower body safely and efficiently. Dr. Ahmadi then makes several small incisions on your buttocks and then inserts a rod-like tool (cannula) through the incision, and gently rocks it back and forth to loosen up any bands of tissue.

Next, through a process that is essentially liposuction in reverse as it uses fat grafting procedures to enhance your buttocks. Dr. Ahmadi will rely on his skills and artistic eye to transfer the extracted fat into specific locations on flat buttocks, creating sexier and more-rounded buttocks with a smoother and more uniform look. Once the desired shape and size have been achieved, the incisions are closed and wrapped in a dressing, followed by a compression garment to minimize swelling, which you should wear for at least the first two weeks.

The procedure takes two to four hours to complete, and most patients can expect about 70% of the transferred fat to remain after the first three to four months.


Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Dr. Ahmadi will release you when he feels comfortable and you will be able to recover at home. You will need a family member or friend to give you a ride home, as you will not be able to sit or lie directly on your butt for the first two weeks. Dr. Ahmadi will prescribe some temporary pain medication and will provide you with tips and suggestions on how to have the most optimal results possible. You can expect your BBL recovery to take about a total of six to eight weeks. 

The first several days after your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery you may experience some of the following: 

  • Your butt may be swollen and bruised
  • Your incisions may bleed slightly
  • You may retain fluid around your affected areas

After a few weeks, you may be able to sit for short periods on a donut pillow, which you will need to continue using for approximately eight weeks. Around this point, and with Dr. Ahmadi’s expressed consent, you should be able to participate in light exercise again, however, you must avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activities for a few months.

How Much Does Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in Houston, TX?

The cost for a Brazilian Butt Lift in Houston can vary on a number of factors, including the degree of change you’re looking for and the amount of fat needed to achieve it. When you come in for your consultation and Dr. Ahmadi has a better idea of how to meet your needs, our Patient Coordinator will use your procedure plan to show you a complete breakdown of your experience.

Since most insurance companies consider this procedure to be a cosmetic procedure, they will not cover any of the costs. If you need financial assistance, we offer help through Alphaeon, United Medical Credit, or CareCredit.
