How Long Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Last?

If you are interested in attaining sculpted buttocks for a sexy, youthful look, a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) procedure is a popular solution for both men and women. The procedure can improve the size and contours of your derriere, lift and shape your buttocks, and restore lost gluteal volume. At Premier Vein and Body by Schwartz, we provide the BeautiFill™ butt augmentation procedure.

How A Brazilian Butt Lift Works

BeautiFill™ is a revolutionary system for fat removal and transfer. Not only does it provide Dr. Schwartz with ultimate control, but its activity is so precise that it can harvest fat cells without the incidental inclusion of any blood or surrounding fibrous tissue.

Using the latest in laser technology, BeautiFill™ heats the tissues surrounding fat cells, facilitating their removal from the treatment site while maintaining the integrity of the fat cells, so they remain viable for transplantation. 

How Long Does A Brazilian Butt Lift Last?

You may be surprised to learn that the lifespan of a Brazilian butt lift is quite long. However, how you take care of your BBL after the procedure will have a direct impact on its longevity. Dr. Schwartz will advise you on the proper long-term care of your augmentation. If you take the proper precautions, you can expect to retain around 70% to 90% of the transfer for several years. You will also need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid gaining or losing a significant amount of weight. 

Am I a Good Candidate for A Brazilian Butt Lift?

Patients who undergo a Brazilian butt lift obtain a two-fold benefit from the procedure because they get a reduction of unwanted pockets of fat while also having sensual contours added to their buttocks. Ideal candidates have:

  • Overall good health
  • Skin elasticity in the buttocks region
  • Sufficient fatty tissue for transplantation
  • Realistic expectation of the outcome

What is the BBL Procedure Like?

The BeautiFill™ Brazilian butt lift treatment is minimally-invasive, performed using just a local tumescent anesthetic, right in the confort and privacy of our Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz office.

During your butt augmentation procedure, our triple board-certified Surgeon, Dr. Craig Schwartz will use the BeautiFill™ laser system to precisely extract unwanted fat from the patient’s body – most often the abdomen, thighs, or flanks – and then transfer the purified fat cells to areas that need volume, including the buttocks!  

Dr. Schwartz has fine-tuned this procedure so that he only needs to make tiny incisions in the donor site to harvest the fat cells. Because the fat is transferred to the treatment area via injection, no further incisions are required. 

What Results Can I Expect?

BeautiFill™ laser treatment is superior to many other BBL solutions. One of the reasons is the device’s optimized harvesting process minimizes the time between fat cell extraction and implantation. This increases the viability of fat cells to up to 95%, which means that the fat cells have a greater chance of sustaining.

Is There Any Downtime After A Brazilian Butt Lift?

The BBL fat extraction procedure is performed with care, so there is minimal trauma to the affected tissue. You can expect to experience mild swelling and bruising after the procedure, but this will resolve within 24-48 hours. You will be able to return home the same day of your Brazilian butt lift procedure and should follow Dr. Schwartz’s aftercare recommendations, which will include avoiding putting pressure on the treatment area. Depending on your job, you may need to rest for a day or two before returning to work.
