Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift

For a Better Booty in Bellevue

Do you feel as though your backside isn’t full enough? Are you looking to improve the contours of your body? Do you want to fill out those jeans completely?

Our Brazilian Butt Lift is an innovative procedure designed to reshape the buttock and improve your overall body contour.* It removes your unwanted fat tissue and deposits it in your buttocks, allowing you to shape your body.* Fat tissue is harvested from another part of your body with liposuction and precisely injected into the buttocks for natural-looking augmentation.*

Who Makes for a Good Brazilian Butt Lift Candidate ?

  • A good BBL candidate has adequate donor areas – meaning you should have some pockets of fat that you can sacrifice. Since a Brazilian Butt Lift relies on a fat donation, it is important that there is sufficient fat tissue from two to three donor areas such as your belly, hips and thighs.
  • Those who want a more volptuous figure. Because it removes fat tissue from areas with extra fat desposits, a Brazilian Butt Lift kills two birds with one stone. A Brazilian Butt Lift reduces fat in stubborn areas and improves volume and projection to the buttock area where it’s needed.*
  • Anyone who desires a more natural procedure without using foreign substances or materials. Since a Brazilian Butt Lift uses the patient’s fat tissue, there is little chance of rejection or allergic reaction.*
  • Someone who has lost considerable weight and wants to add shape to their new figure.
  • Someone who is at or near their optimal body weight. Brazilian butt lift is not a weight loss procedure but rather body contouring surgery.

Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery – The Procedure

Bellevue’s Dr. Flugstad’s Meticulous Techniques

A Brazilian Butt Lift is an outpatient procedure, and it will be performed under general anesthesia.

A Brazilian Butt Lift will increase the size and improve the profile of a patient’s backside to better fit the patient’s figure and provide a shapely, more prominent rear end.* The procedure uses excess fat from designated donor areas of the body such as the back, abdomen, hips, and thighs and removes the fat cells with liposuction. Dr. Flugstad will create small incisions in the donor area and insert a small tube. He will remove the cells by dissolving the fat deposits before gently aspirating them.

Dr. Flugstad will then purify the fat cells using a filter, and select the most suitable cells for transfer. He will insert the fat grafts into the buttocks using tiny cannulas at different depths for a natural look and feel.* For best results, Dr. Flugstad will use several injections.  He will determine the amount of fat transferred according to the desired outcome.

Some patients may need an additional touch up because transferred fat can absorb back into the body after surgery.

“Dr. Flugstad and his staff are so amazing!! He did an amazing job on my Brazilian butt lift using the fat from my stomach, inner thighs, arms, and back. I couldn’t be more impressed with my results I feel a lot more confident now, and after the surgery, Dr. Flugstad called me and was with me every step of the way from the healing process all the way until I was 100% me again. He and his staff have been so amazing, and I would recommend him to everyone I know! Thank you, Dr. Flugstad!” ~ Bellevue, WA

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Taking a Recommended Break in Bellevue

A BBL will require some downtime. Dr. Flugstad recommends at least a week off work.* With more extensive liposuction cases, a patient may need a longer recovery period. Most Brazilian Butt Lift patients can return to normal activity within a few weeks.* At this time, bruising and swelling after surgery will have reduced significantly, though some minimal signs of the procedure may remain for several weeks.*

After surgery, we recommend you begin light walking the same day to minimize your risk of blood clots. Patients should minimize sitting for the first couple of weeks. Light cardio exercises are encouraged after a few weeks. We ask you to wear a compression garment for several weeks after surgery.

Our Brazilian Butt Lift is a safe procedure and produces great results; however, after surgery, you will need approximately a month for recovery before you can return to your daily routine.* Here is a general outline of the recovery period.

The first week – Swelling, bruising, and soreness should be expected and can be significant.* We encourage patients to wear loose clothing to maximize comfort and also to hide post-surgical garments.

The second week – Bruising will begin to subside, but swelling may still be substantial.* Some patients may worry they went too big at this time, but the swelling has yet to decline enough to make this determination.*

The third week – Expect a great reduction in swelling and overall appearance.* You’ll begin to feel like your normal self and should begin normal activities.*

The fourth week – The swelling should have subsided enough for you to appreciate the new shape of your tush.* However, some swelling may continue for a few weeks.*

Dr. Flugstad and our professional staff always care for each patient on an individual basis. Your recovery process will be explained fully during the consultation, and we are here for any questions that may arise during the period.

Preparing for Brazilian Butt Lift

You should get a medical clearance at least two weeks before surgery. We will also need to review your medical history and have results from a blood test. If you smoke, you should stop one month before surgery. You should also abstain from anti-inflammatory medicines like aspirin or ibuprofen at least two weeks before surgery. You should abstain from eating or drinking anything the night before surgery.

“Dr. Flugstad is so amazing! He had the best bedside manner and treated me as if I was his only patient, and he always gave 100 % of himself when I was in his care. I could text him, and he would respond in minutes, I do not know many doctors that would give a cell phone number to text. His skill is astounding, and I would trust him to do any procedure.” ~ Seattle, WA

Butt Procedures Explained

Finding a Surgeon in Bellevue

Not all plastic surgeons in Bellevue have experience with the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. This popular treatment has fantastic results when done correctly by a board-certified plastic surgeon. You need to find a surgeon who specializes in this type of surgery and has the satisfied patients to prove it.

If not done correctly, there might be a slightly higher chance of irregular shape or repositioned fat disappearing after a Brazilian Butt Lift. Be sure your surgeon can show you many before and after photos of satisfied patients who have had the procedure. You have to be sure you are comfortable with and confident in the surgeon you choose.

Here are some questions which need answering before choosing your surgeon:

  • Is your surgeon board-certified in plastic surgery? Be sure they are a plastic surgeon; there are many surgeons that are cosmetic surgeons or board-certified in fields other than plastic surgery. They have different backgrounds and training. You can check the American Board of Plastic Surgery website for a list of plastic surgeons in your area.
  • Does your surgeon commonly perform this procedure? Ask to see before and after pictures or look online for reviews.
  • Where is the surgery performed? Is the procedure performed in an accredited surgery center or hospital?
  • Who performs the anesthesia for the procedure? Is an anesthesiologist performing the anesthesia?
