Brazilian Butt Lift in Houston
The BBL—or Brazilian Butt Lift—is a surgical procedure designed to enlarge and lift the buttocks. Using the body’s own fatty tissue, a Brazilian Butt Lift can enhance the shape and contour of the buttocks, creating a curvaceous, youthful figure.

The Ideal Candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift
A good candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift will be in generally good health, looking to improve the shape and size of their buttocks. Potential patients will need to have enough excess fatty tissue, in a donor area, to achieve the desired buttock contour.
An ideal candidate should fully understand the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure and hold realistic expectations for their final results. Patients who smoke are not good candidates for the procedure. Smoking decreases circulation, meaning the grafted fat tissue will typically not survive.
Your Informative Consultation
Prior to scheduling a Brazilian Butt Lift, your consultation with Dr. Vitenas will be arranged, during which time he will perform a physical exam and review your medical history. Dr. Vitenas will explain the procedure and potential risks, answering any remaining questions and walking you through the details of your experience.
Here at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a wide range of both surgical and non-surgical options, any one of which might be the ideal way to accomplish your cosmetic goals. Dr. Vitenas prides himself on his commitment to working closely with each one of his patients. Once he’s learned about your personal aesthetic aspirations, he’ll guide you to the procedure that is right for you.
“I had a fat transfer from my abdomen to my butt and the results are better than I expected.”
“I am very pleased with Dr. Vitenas, his staff, office, and most importantly my results! I had a fat transfer from my abdomen to my butt and the results are better than I expected. It should be emphasized that Dr. Vitenas specializes in natural looking results and that’s what I got and very happy with it. I get compliments all the time which of course makes me feel good. Dr. Vitenas was very professional, kind, and provides a great bed side manner. His staff is also the best! They are all very sweet and professional. Loved the treatment from everyone. Only downfall is his pricing. I had consultations with other surgeons and Dr. Vitenas’ quotes are higher. However, it was worth it to me. If I decide to have additional work done, I trust Dr. Vitenas and would pay more to have peace of mind knowing that he would do a great job.”
The Fat Transfer Process
Fat transfer involves the removal of excess fatty tissue from a donor area, which is then processed and reinjected into a different area of the body. A fat transfer can be used to improve the volume of almost any area of the body, including the buttocks, hands, calves, breasts, and face.
Liposuction removes unwanted fat from areas such as the abdomen or thighs. Next, the tissue is cleaned and separated. Finally, the processed fat cells are then reinjected into the target area.
Your Brazilian Butt Lift Experience
Dr. Paul Vitenas performs his Brazilian Butt Lift at Houston Surgery Center, his dedicated surgical facility located in the Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery building. Performed with general anesthesia, a Brazilian Butt Lift will take from one to three hours to complete. You’ll be able to return home the same afternoon, though you will need someone to help you as the anesthesia wears off.
To begin, Dr. Vitenas will make several small incisions, each one about a quarter-inch in length, along the well-concealed skin creases of the buttocks. The proper amount of fat is then collected from selected areas of the body using one of several liposuction techniques before it is prepared for reinjection. The prepared fat is then injected into multiple layers of the buttocks, lifting and filling the tissue to the desired size and shape.
During the procedure, Dr. Vitenas can also excise stretched, unwanted tissue along the buttocks, creating a perkier, taut bottom. Once the predetermined aesthetic goal has been achieved, Dr. Vitenas will place dissolvable sutures along the incisions, as well as a compression garment for safe healing. If you have any questions about the overall experience, you’ll be more than welcome to ask them during your consultation.
Recovering After Your Procedure
Recovery following a Brazilian Butt Lift in Houston takes approximately one to two weeks. There are no drains or stitches that need to be removed. Most people are feeling good enough to return to work within five to seven days, however, patients should refrain from putting pressure on the buttocks for at least the first two weeks.
More strenuous activity and exercise can usually be resumed after six weeks. You’ll be given a thorough recovery timeline and detailed instructions that will help you preserve your results.
Complications from the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure are minimal. Although the skin and tissues will continue to change with age, as long as patients follow a healthy lifestyle and stay within their ideal weight, the results from a Brazilian Butt Lift can be expected to last for years to come.

Brazilian Butt LiftFAQ
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure that lifts and enlarges the buttocks to enhance their shape and contour. Fatty tissue is removed from another area of the body using liposuction and then reinjected into the buttocks.
Candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift are healthy and are looking to enhance the appearance of their buttocks. Patients must have sufficient fat that can be harvested from one or more donor areas. In addition, smokers are not good candidates, as smoking decreases circulation, often resulting in a fat graft that does not take successfully.
Dr. Vitenas will begin the Brazilian Butt Lift by collecting fatty tissue from a donor area using liposuction. After making several tiny incisions along the target area, the processed fatty tissue will be re-injected into the various layers of buttock tissue. Once the desired shape has been achieved, Dr. Vitenas will place dissolvable sutures to close the wounds and put a compression garment in place for proper healing.
The incisions are made in a well-concealed location along the buttocks, within the natural skin creases. Each incision is very small, measuring just one-quarter inch in length. While there may be tiny scars along each incision line, Dr. Vitenas meticulously places the incisions in well-hidden areas of the buttocks.
Dr. Vitenas normally utilizes general anesthesia during the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
The recovery time following the Brazilian Butt Lift takes approximately one to two weeks. During the first two weeks, patients should stay off of their bottoms as much as possible.
Most patients find that they can return to work after five to seven days, and they are able to resume exercise and more strenuous activities after six weeks.
Dr. Vitenas’ Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is an innovative fat transfer technique that is considered both safe and effective. However, there is always a small chance for complications to occur. Although rare, there is a risk for scarring, infection, unexpected bleeding, asymmetry, and nerve damage. During your consultation, Dr. Vitenas will carefully review the risks associated with a Brazilian Butt Lift.
The cost of buttock augmentation generally ranges from $9,000 to $14,000. The exact cost of this cosmetic procedure depends on the individual and the extent of correction.
