“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.”

    What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

    The Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient procedure that provides a dramatic improvement with more perky, fuller glutes. BBLs offer some of the most dramatic and satisfying body contouring results available today. With the option of using your own tissues, it can produce extremely natural-looking results that feel completely smooth and soft to the touch. While the procedure is commonly considered “buttock augmentation” at face value, the entire procedure is actually geared toward contouring the entire body.

    Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Provides Balance

    A Brazilian butt lift sculpts your body, providing a beautiful definition that some simply can’t achieve through exercise alone.

    This transformative procedure can help you:

    • Provide a more appealing buttocks
    • Attain your ideal physique
    • Dramatically boost your confidence
    • Free up your mental bandwidth to focus on other things

    Fine-Tuned Body Proportions

    When we think of the ideal body, the word that comes to mind is “proportionate.” A BBL provides harmony between the upper and lower body. This procedure accentuates the waistline while augmenting the glutes to provide an hourglass figure everyone will love. Brazilian butt lift procedures have become so popular because they provide the beautifully balanced silhouette that everyone craves.

    Natural Appearance

    Unlike butt implants made of silicone or other synthetic materials, a BBL uses your own body fat for buttock enhancement. This results in extremely natural-looking and feeling results. With the right Houston BBL surgeon, there’s no “fake” look or feel regarding the amazing results of this procedure.

    Improved Confidence

    By refining your shape, a BBL doesn’t just lift your rear, it also lifts your self-esteem. Most BBL patients feel more confident and ready to take on the world after their procedure. It’s about so much more than just your backside.

    Fashion Becomes Fun Again

    Many patients avoid wearing fitted clothes or showing off their backside in swimsuits because they don’t love the shape of their bodies. With a customized BBL, patients can transform their body’s contour and gain that perfect heart-shaped rear from all angles. You’ll be able to wear your favorite jeans and bikini with confidence after your Brazilian butt lift.

    Brazilian Butt Lift Technique

    Fat Harvesting: The BBL uses the liposuction technique to remove a patient’s own fat cells from areas like the thighs or stomach. This fat transfer process is known as fat grafting. During the process, Dr. Vitenas will harvest fat cells, process them, and inject the purified fat into the buttocks. These transferred cells provide instantaneous augmentation.

    Removing Excess Skin: After the harvested fat is removed, extra skin may be left over. Excess skin can also be removed to create even more lift. The result is dynamic, entirely dependent on the patient’s goal.

    Personalized Results: Dr. Vitenas has the expertise to take each patient’s needs into account and adapt the direction of the procedure toward these goals. Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery takes a personalized approach, voluntarily turning away from cookie-cutter results.

    After Your BBL: After surgery, dissolvable sutures and a compression garment promote proper healing.  Patients return home the same day, ready to start enjoying their new silhouette right away.

    Ideal Candidates for Butt Augmentation in Houston, TX

    The best candidates for a Brazilian butt lift procedure are individuals who are bothered by sagging, flatness, or lack of definition in their rear contour. They are relatively fit and close to their ideal weight. The BBL uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat cells from other areas of your body. So having good donor sites available is crucial.

    Ideal candidates should also be non-smokers in good general health. Patients need to be prepared for the recovery process after BBL surgery. They should hold realistic expectations for the procedure and diligently follow all of Dr. Vitenas’ post-op instructions. 

    Some of the key factors we consider when assessing if a Brazilian butt lift is right for an individual include:

    • Enough excess fat in common donor areas
    • Non-smoker in good health
    • Motivated to maintain a stable body weight
    • Understands potential risks and results
    • Committed to following proper aftercare protocol

    Your Houston Brazilian Butt Lift Consultation

    A thorough consultation is the first step for any prospective BBL patient. This appointment with Dr. Vitenas allows him to get to know you and your aesthetic goals. He will perform a physical exam, take your full medical history, and discuss all aspects of the Brazilian butt lift process.

    He will explain how he harvests fat using liposuction, purifies and processes the tissue, then strategically transfers it into the buttocks. Dr. Vitenas will also review recovery time, self-care, and any potential BBL risks.

    This is your opportunity to ask all your questions about the procedure. Our staff will also provide information on financing and scheduling so you can get the process started. Our goal is to make everything as simple and exciting as possible while making sure all of your questions are answered, and you are fully informed.

    The Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery office in Houston.

    The Brazilian Butt Lift Houston Experience

    At our Quad AAAA Certified surgical center (Houston Surgery Center) located right in our Houston office, we provide a safe and comfortable environment for your BBL procedure, done under general anesthesia, to help you feel completely relaxed.

    Dr. Vitenas will begin by inserting a small cannula and suctioning fat from predetermined donor sites. After processing and purifying, he strategically transfers the tissue into precise areas of the buttocks through small incisions. The procedure takes 1-3 hours, depending on the amount of fat harvested and transferred. Most patients can return home the same day to begin enjoying their results.

    Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

    While you will see an immediate improvement in your rear shape after surgery, final BBL results take patience. Each patient is unique. This means that the recovery times for each patient can vary. Here is the general BBL recovery timeline:
    • Recovery following a Brazilian butt lift in Houston takes around 1 to 2 weeks.
    • Avoid sitting directly on your buttocks as much as possible within the first 2 weeks.
    • Most patients can return to work and normal activities within 5 to 7 days.
    • Patients can usually resume more strenuous activity and exercise after 6 weeks.
    • The full contour and definition will become increasingly apparent over the span of 6 weeks as the swelling resolves.
    Follow all of Dr. Vitenas’ instructions carefully including wearing your compression garment as directed. This will help ensure the transferred fat cells properly revascularize in their new location. Initial discomfort can be managed with pain medication. Be diligent with follow-ups so Dr. Vitenas can monitor your progress.

    Brazilian Butt Lift Results

    Long Lasting Enhancement

    The results of your Brazilian butt lift can last for years to come as long as you maintain your weight. With the right healthy habits, BBL results can last for over a decade. By transferring your own body’s fat cells instead of using synthetic implants, you get the most natural feel possible.

    Results That Feel Natural

    The smooth, even augmentation comes from dozens of tiny fat cell deposits throughout your buttock tissues. This meticulous technique creates very subtle, gradual contours. There are no telltale signs of artificial enhancement.

    Discrete and Subtle

    After you are fully healed from surgery, no one will suspect you had any cosmetic procedure. The improvement to your rear shape will look like you have simply gained toned, supple volume that catches the eyes for all the right reasons.

    Brazilian Butt Lift Cost

    At Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, we understand that every individual has unique aspirations for their appearance, which is why we offer personalized care for each patient. The cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift begins at $12,000, but some elements that can influence the cost of a Brazilian butt lift are:

    • The amount of fat that needs to be removed and transferred
    • The complexity of the procedure
    • Additional procedures to enhance BBL results
    It is best to request a consultation with Dr. Vitenas so he can offer a customized plan to help you achieve your unique goals.

    BBL Financing

    At Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, we offer financing options to help make this procedure more affordable for our patients. We can discuss these options with you during your consultation.

    Brazilian Butt LiftFAQ

    A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks. It uses liposuction to remove fat from other areas of your body, then transfers it to the buttocks for smooth, natural-feeling augmentation.
    First, Dr. Vitenas will collect fat from donor sites like the abdomen or thighs using liposuction. After processing the tissue, he strategically injects the fat into the buttock tissues. This customized placement leads to beautiful, even augmentation.
    When performed by an experienced surgeon like Dr. Vitenas, BBL results are extremely long-lasting. As long as you maintain a stable weight, the transferred fat cells should retain their volume for years. However, significant weight fluctuations can impact how long your results last.
    For patient comfort and safety, Dr. Vitenas performs Brazilian butt lifts under general anesthesia. This allows you to relax completely during the procedure.
    Initial recovery takes 1-2 weeks. You'll need to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for extended periods during this time. Most patients can return to regular activities within 1-2 weeks. More strenuous exercise can typically resume after 6 weeks.

    The starting price for buttock augmentation is usually around $12,000. However, the final price can vary depending on your specific situation and the level of change you're looking for.
