A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) uses your own fat to enhance the size and shape of your buttocks. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kotis performs liposuction to remove fat from another area of the body (sometimes from your hips, thighs or stomach), then injects that fat into the butt cheeks and outer hips. The Brazilian butt lift enhances the contour of your derriere by extracting unwanted fat to add volume.

The Chicago Brazilian butt lift is an incredible surgical procedure that can transform your figure.
To see if you would be a candidate, we recommend considering the following:
Do you have sagging skin? A Brazilian butt lift cannot address sagging skin. If this is your issue, you will need an additional surgery.
Do you have unwanted fat elsewhere on the body? The Brazilian butt lift requires donor fat from another area of the body. Ideally, this fat is easily accessible on your hips or love handles.
Do you want to increase the size of your buttocks? The Brazilian butt lift tightens and enhances the shape of your buttocks by adding volume. As such, it’s not ideal for Arlington Heights men and women who want a smaller backside.
Are you in good health? Being generally healthy is a prerequisite for any plastic surgery because it ensures that you can tolerate anesthesia and recover properly from the butt lift surgery.
The Brazilian butt lift is popular among our Arlington Heights and Chicago patients because it allows them to achieve a perky buttocks using very small incisions. The entire surgery takes about two hours and is usually done under general anesthesia.
To begin, Dr. Kotis will sculpt another area of your body (typically the love handles or hips) with liposuction. Once an adequate amount of fat has been removed, Dr. Kotis will purify the extracted cells in a centrifuge and separate the best ones for the transfer. He will then inject the cleansed fat into your buttocks at varying locations and depths to create a younger, lifted derriere.
After your buttock augmentation in Chicago, you need to give your body plenty of time to heal. Immediately after surgery, you will feel groggy due to the effects of the anesthesia and your buttocks will be swollen and bruised. As such, you will need to arrange for a friend or family member to drive you home.
To help with your recovery from your Brazilian butt lift consider the following:
Rest, hydrate, and wear your compression garment as directed to support your new contours and maintain your results.
Sit and lie down without placing pressure on your buttocks.
Take your antibiotics and prescription pain medications as directed.
Stay home from work for at least one week and have a friend or family member care for you.
Do not drink alcohol, smoke or take certain medications, such as aspirin.
Walk lightly around the house as soon as you’re able to promote healing.
The results of your butt lift surgery will be completely unique to you. However, most of our patients report a perky and firm derriere that dramatically improves their appearance.
The results typically endure for many years as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid any dramatic weight fluctuations.
Brazilian Butt Lift Chicago
If you have sagging skin on your buttocks, you won’t be able to achieve your optimal results with a Brazilian butt lift alone. In this case, Dr. Kotis will likely recommend a lower body lift as well to tighten drooping tissue and restore a smooth contour.
A Brazilian butt lift, or buttock augmentation, can increase volume, lift the buttocks to a higher position and enhance shape to the body. In Chicago, patients choose a butt lift to add proportion and contour to the body. Dr. Kotis can perform butt lifts for interested patients.
A butt lift can be performed with two different techniques: implants or fat transfer.
Implants may be placed in the top or sides of the buttock for aesthetic appeal. During an implant surgery, Dr. Kotis will place implants after making the appropriate incision. The placement of these incisions include near the lower end of the muscle, near the sides or down the center, depending on the anatomy and the desires of the patient.
Fat grafting, more commonly associated with augmentation, may also be used to please patients. This technique usually includes liposuction. Liposuction removes excess fat from areas, such as the stomach, for injection. Patients may opt for fat injection in different areas depending on the volume they desire.
