Brazilian Butt Lift Michigan Specialists
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic procedure growing rapidly in Michigan. The treatment consists of increasing the size and projection of the butt by transferring fat tissue without the use of implants or harmful synthetic fillers. It is a great option for patients looking to improve their overall body contour since the fat tissue is typically removed from the midsection. This results in a slimmer waist and midsection along with a more youthful and fuller looking butt. At SurgeonGate, you can learn about the Brazilian butt lift technique and request a consultation with a leading butt lift surgeon in Michigan. We are on a mission to make cosmetic surgery safer and more effective by connecting patients with highly experienced and specialized surgeons. Request a consultation today!

How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost in Michigan?
A Brazilian butt lift costs $6,500 for the average patient in Michigan. With that being said, Brazilian butt lifts do not have a hard price. Every patient is different and entails a unique amount of time and resources to treat. Factors that affect the price include how much fat needs to be transferred and how much body contouring is necessary.
All of our plastic surgeons in Michigan understand that treatments can be costly for patients and for this reason offer financing options and long-term payment plans such as CareCredit. We highly recommend patients avoid bargain shopping on cosmetic surgery. Very low prices are often used by doctors to lure in patients who will overlook their lack of credentials and rush into surgery.
How is a Brazilian butt lift performed?
During a Brazilian butt lift, fat tissue is removed from the body using liposuction and then transferred to the buttocks. The procedure typically lasts 1-3 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. The procedure begins with the collection of fat tissue from other areas of the body. The fat is usually taken from the waist, abdomen, and lower back to improve muscle definition and narrow the waist. This is done to further enhance the look and projection of the butt when compared to the waist. The procedure continues with creating small incisions around the butt where the surgeon can inject the fat. The surgeon then fills the buttocks with the accumulated fat and contours the area to create a natural and youthful appearance.
Fat tissue transfers have been performed for many years and continue to be an excellent filler. Fat tissue is the only autologous or self-derived filling currently used in cosmetic surgery. The fat tissue extracted through liposuction allows for a more precise volume increase, a faster recovery, and significantly greater patient satisfaction. Because the filler is coming from your own body, there is no possibility of the body rejecting it or having a negative reaction to it, making it safer and more effective than synthetic fillers.
How long is recovery for a Brazilian butt lift?
Most patients resume daily activities within a week and return to work within 10 to 14 days after surgery. It is normal to feel sore in the first few days, although all the liposuctioned areas will be inflamed and bruised temporarily. It is very important to apply gauze or compresses on the incisions and keep your compression belt tight. Although you feel discomfort, you can walk and move around the house at this time. The first few days will involve prescribed analgesics and antibiotics.
A compression belt will be placed around the liposuction areas after surgery. You will wear this for 6-8 weeks. The girdle helps minimize inflammation and bruising, relieves pain and helps correct skin retraction. The area with less pain and inflammation during recovery is actually the butt. The transfer of the fat is done with very thin cannulas that cause little trauma to the tissues.
How long does a Brazilian butt lift last?
The results of Brazilian butt lift are typically long-lasting if not permanent. The survival of fat varies depending on the technique that the surgeon uses to purify the fat cells and how well the patient follows the doctor’s instructions during recovery. Patients who avoid sitting or putting pressure on their buttocks during the first three weeks after surgery are much more likely to have lasting results.
Lifestyle can also affect the longevity of transplanted fat cells. In particular, smoking can lead to cell loss because it reduces the supply of blood to the tissues. By eating well, staying active, and avoiding cigarettes, patients can significantly increase the duration of their results. This is the same for any cosmetic surgery. If patients follow these recommendations, and the recommendations of their surgeon, the transfer of fat to the butt can last a lifetime.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the preparation for a Brazilian butt lift?
One day before the procedure, the patient typically visits their surgeon to prepare the fat cells that will be extracted the day of the surgery. The patient is usually prescribed an oral antibiotic to be taken the day before and is maintained for a total of five days (the most commonly used are amoxicillin-clavulanic acid or ciprofloxacin). In addition, the patient must have a normal preoperative hematological exam.
For the stimulation of adipose tissue or fat cells, 100 i.u of rapid insulin is diluted in 500 cc of normal saline. From there 2 cc (0.4 u.i. of insulin) are taken and added to 100 cc of 5% glucose. This solution is then injected into the abdominal subcutaneous tissue.
The patient returns the next day with eight hours of fasting and placed under intravenous sedation (midazolam/fentanyl) and epidural anesthesia by a certified anesthesiologist. Careful sterilization is practiced and the liposuction procedure to collect the fat tissue is begun.
What are the risks of a Brazilian butt lift?
When the treatment is carried out by an experienced specialist, following all the guidelines common to any surgery, complications are extremely rare. The most prevalent complications are partial absorption of transferred fat and minor infections. Cases in which severe infections occur are usually related to failures in operative sterilization.
Another reported complication is fat embolism development. A recent study of patients who developed fatty tissue embolisms after undergoing fat transfers found that the injected fat was made in quantities too large and that fat was injected too deep into the muscle. The symptoms that presaged embolism were dizziness and vomiting; the problem continued later with hypoxia, dyspnea and respiratory failure that led to death. To prevent this, surgeons must avoid perforation of the major arteries and veins, and ensure that the fat is injected very slowly in a retrograde manner with very little pressure through multiple tunnels. When performed correctly, it is a very safe and effective procedure.
Even when you work with a credible and board-certified plastic surgeon, if they are not specifically trained in the Brazilian butt lift technique, complications are more possible. It is for this reason that we recommend you request a consultation with SurgeonGate to ensure you are placed with an experienced Brazilian butt lift surgeon.
What are tension threads?
Tension threads, as its name suggests, are threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO) capable of creating a support system for tissue. These threads are introduced into the subcutaneous tissue with the help of fine needles/cannulas that once the thread has been placed in the area to be treated, are carefully extracted. The procedure with tension threads consists of the creation of a mesh that supports and repositions tissues that have lost their original firmness and height. This framework that is created can also stimulate the natural production of collagen and fibroblasts to tighten the area you want to improve.

How does SurgeonGate work?
When you request a consultation through SurgeonGate, a specialist immediately analyzes your case to better understand the skills it will require for you to reach your goals. Once that is established, we determine which plastic surgeon is most experienced with patients like you, and is most fit to handle your case safely and effectively.
We then share your information with that surgeon, who may or may not be well known in your area. Once the surgeon receives your information from SurgeonGate, which is typically on the same day, their medical staff will reach out to you and schedule a consultation for you to meet them.
Why do I need to use SurgeonGate?
The world of cosmetic surgery is lucrative and greatly unregulated in the state of Michigan. Dermatologists are performing hair transplants and general practitioners are performing liposuction left and right. Technically speaking, you do not need to be a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform plastic and cosmetic surgeries, and this has led to a growing number of complications and unhappy patients.
Many doctors are marketing themselves as “cosmetic surgeons” when in reality, their residency training was in dermatology, ophthalmology, family medicine, or general surgery. Most of these doctors have been drawn to performing cosmetic surgery for its high profits and lack of regulation by health insurance companies.
So my surgeon just needs to be board certified?
Even surgeons who are board certified in plastic surgery may not be specialized in the procedure you are having. The best surgeons are those who specialize in the smallest number of treatments and focus their efforts on a particular region of the body. Despite this, many plastic surgeons are still performing every single procedure under the sun. From hair transplants to breast augmentation, to rhinoplasty and liposuction, every single procedure is extremely complex and surgeons who try to offer everything at one clinic often find themselves having trouble matching the results of a specialist.
When you choose to work with SurgeonGate, you don’t just get to work with top plastic surgeons in Michigan. You get to work with leading plastic surgeons who specialize in the procedure of your choice, because that’s how we make plastic surgery safe and effective for everyone.
