How Long Does It Take To Do A Brazilian Butt Lift?

Q: Dr. Eppley, How long does a fat butt lift take? Am I a good candidate  for it based on my pictures?

A: The Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure that does take from where you don’t want it and puts it into your buttocks. However, the caveats to the procedure are that only so much fat can be transferred, based on what you have to give, and thus the final results will be affected by that volume. Secondly, since much of the donor site will come from your abdomen and flanks, this will create a create a greater overhang of stomach skin that is probably best to deal with at the same time. While a tummy tuck could be delayed until later, it is more ideal to have it done at the same time as the Brazilian Butt Lift

Depending on what is done, the time of surgery will vary. For a Brazilian Butt Lift using only liposuction, the procedure is around 2 1/2 hours. If a tummy tuck is done at the same time this would extend the total operative time up to 4 hours

Given these issues, the best way to get the greatest understanding of the benefits and limits of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure would be to come in for a consultation to discuss these issues in detail.
