Brazilian Butt Lift

Minimally Invasive Buttocks Enhancement in NYC

As a New York woman, you deserve to feel confident about the way you look. If your backside is your biggest area of concern, you may not feel as confident in certain clothing as you would like. You can squat and stair-step your way to a more well-rounded rump, but age and genetics can often limit your results. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega know what it means to feel comfortable with your feminine silhouette and bring this understanding to the table with each of their patients. With a Brazilian Butt Lift, we can help you achieve the curvy shape you want with little recovery time and while losing some stubborn fat along the way.

What is a Brazilian buttock lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a popular buttocks enhancement procedure that is less invasive and requires less recovery time than a gluteal implant procedure. With her years of aesthetic experience, Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega are able to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results for her patients. Using liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue from areas of the body where it is not needed, your New York cosmetic surgeon can then repurpose these fat cells to provide the buttocks with a rounder and more lifted shape. This method is known as fat grafting or fat transfer.

Should I consider a Brazilian butt lift?

The Brazilian butt lift can be a great option for anyone wanting to enhance the curves of their backside. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega have performed this procedure for many women who have either experienced physical changes due to age, weight loss or pregnancy, or for those who simply haven’t been able to achieve their ideal figure with just diet and exercise alone. A Brazilian butt lift can achieve more natural-looking results than alternative procedures because it utilizes your body’s own fat to shape the buttocks.

An added bonus of the Brazilian butt lift is that you will not only achieve the shape you desire for your buttocks, but you will also lose some stubborn fat from where the donor fat is taken.

How soon can I schedule my Brazilian butt lift?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega will go over the procedure with you in detail and carefully listen to your goals and expectations to determine the proper treatment plan for you. Our surgery team will do their best to make sure your surgery and recovery fit well into your busy schedule. Once you are comfortable moving forward, the two of you can set a time for you to come in for your Brazilian butt lift procedure. Because there is a bit of a recovery time for this procedure, we recommend planning your surgery a few weeks before any big events or vacations.

Will I see results immediately after my Brazilian butt lift?

You will notice a curvier, shapelier buttocks immediately after your procedure. It is important to consider that your results may initially seem fuller than intended, but as swelling dissipates and your body absorbs some of the transferred fat cells, you will begin to see the shape you intended. You will also notice a slight slimming of the area where donor fat cells were harvested (*).

Patients are extremely pleased with Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega’s careful attention to natural contouring, and the dual benefits of slimming and enhancing one’s figure with the Brazilian butt lift.

How do I prepare for my Brazilian butt lift?

For two weeks prior to surgery, you will be required to quit smoking and avoid blood thinning medication and NSAIDs such as Advil® or ibuprofen, Aleve®, and aspirin. Smoking should not be started again for a minimum of two weeks after the surgery.  Please arrange for a ride home from the procedure and be sure to wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes. 

How is a Brazilian butt lift performed?

To begin, your New York cosmetic surgeon will need to remove excess fat to use for your Brazilian butt lift. Depending on your situation, this fat can be taken from areas such as your abdomen, thighs, hips, or back using liposuction. Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega will then carefully inject the cleaned fat cells into your buttocks, using the goals you discussed during your consultation to create a firmer, shapelier contour.  

How long does a Brazilian butt lift take?

The Brazilian butt lift will vary between patients based on the amount of enhancement desired and where the fat is being taken from. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega will typically complete a Brazilian butt lift in about 2-4 hours.  

Do I have to stay overnight after my buttocks enhancement?

You will not need to stay overnight following your Brazilian butt lift; however, it is important to have someone with you to drive you home and provide any necessary assistance you may need in the initial days of recovery.

How long does a Brazilian butt lift recovery take?

The Brazilian butt lift will require some recovery time, and you may have difficulty sitting in the beginning stages. We recommend taking about a week off work to recover at home. Light physical activity, such as walking, can help your body heal faster. The final results of your procedure can be seen after about 2-3 months (*).  

What are the risks following a Brazilian butt lift?

As with other cosmetic surgery procedures, butt lifts are very safe when performed by a cosmetic surgeon, such as Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega. Complications are rare, but may include bleeding, infection, or fat absorption. 

Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega’s cell phone immediately. 

How long will my Brazilian butt lift results last?

The results of your Brazilian butt lift are intended to last indefinitely and can be maintained with a healthy lifestyle. Eating right and getting regular exercise may even help to enhance your results as you build more muscle.  

How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?

At New Look New Life, the Brazilian butt lift starts as low as $9,000. You will be given a detailed quote during your consultation. The cost of your Brazilian butt lift will include your surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, facility and operating room fees, required garments, and all of your follow-up visits.

Are there alternatives for buttocks enhancement?

For patients who want to enlarge their buttocks or thighs, fat transfer through a Brazilian butt lift is the optimal procedure. However, if you wish to reshape or reduce the size of your hips, thighs, and buttocks, then liposuction alone may be another effective option. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega are highly skilled in a full range of cosmetic enhancement procedures than can improve your figure and confidence.
