When can you get a revision after brazilian butt lift?

03rd Apr 2018

We have witnessed a huge surge in the use of the Brazilian butt lift among women who wish to enhance their buttocks and achieve their aesthetic goals. The surgery, which was nonexistent about a decade ago, is now the most widely preferred procedure by women desiring to sculpt their bottoms. The surgery not only adds moderate projection to the buttocks, but also makes them curvy and shapely. After the surgery, women attain perky and sexy buttocks.

The Brazilian butt lift helps you achieve your ideal aesthetic appearance by using your own body fat. For you to be eligible for the surgery, you must have surplus fat in localized areas of your body like the abdomen, sides, flanks, love handles, thighs and upper back. This fat would be removed from the donor areas through liposuction and then transferred to your buttocks. This procedure is for you if your butt is flat, smaller, sagging or poorly shaped.

However, the outcome achieved with the Brazilian butt lift is sustainable under certain conditions. In time, you may need to undergo a revision surgery in order to keep enjoying the results of the original Brazilian butt lift surgery. Certain factors can take their toll on the appearance of your buttocks after the surgery, such as gravity, aging and weight fluctuations.

The rising popularity of the Brazilian butt lift among modern women has also led to high expectations from the patients of the procedure. There is no doubt that plastic surgery procedures may not always deliver you the promised or expected aesthetic results. Most Board-Certified plastic surgeons communicate this to their patients in advance of the surgery and encourage them to keep reasonable and realistic expectations of the surgery.

No matter what reason the patient may have for being dissatisfied with the initial procedure’s results, the priority for the plastic surgeon now is to help the patient achieve the expected results after the corrective procedure. There is also a chance that the patient may be satisfied by the aesthetic improvements in her derriere after the surgery, but aging, gravity and weight change may negatively affect the results. The surgeon’s new goal is to deliver the patient’s expectations of the procedure.

The good news is that change in the outcome attained with the original Brazilian butt lift surgery can be restored and enhanced with a revision surgery. The revision surgery will restore the impressive aesthetic results achieved with the original procedure, or it will correct the inadequacies of the original surgery.

It is important to understand that aging is one of the powerful factors that may change the improvements brought about by the Brazilian butt lift. As you age, your butt may gradually become sagging and the fat injected into your butt may decrease in volume.

Weight loss is yet another major factor that negatively affects the results of the Brazilian butt lift because the fat injected into your butt during the surgery behaves just like other fat in your body. The fat will shrink if you lose weight, decreasing the volume of your buttocks and changing its shape. The revision surgery can help correct the imperfections in your buttocks by the aforementioned factors.

While the initial fat transfer to your buttocks will be sustainable as long as you maintain a stable weight, if you are not happy with the results within the first year following the surgery, a revision surgery may be performed. However, you should keep in mind that in some patients, the surgery’s full results may take up to one year to become visible. Also, your expectations and goals should be realistic.

Revision surgery can also address cases where insufficient fat was removed from other body parts for transfer to the buttocks, which may have led to poor buttock definition and very little butt lift. Moreover, if many bumps and depressions have appeared on your buttock after a Brazilian butt lift, a revision surgery can correct the problem. This condition will be corrected by removing fat from your body and transferring it to your buttocks in order to make the skin smoother during the revision surgery.

There is also a possibility that you may feel that an excessive amount of fat has been injected into your buttocks after the Brazilian butt lift. Or you may feel that the buttocks have become asymmetrical after the surgery. In these instances, the revision surgery can be used to correct the problem. During the procedure, some fat may be removed from one of your buttocks and injected into the other, so they become symmetrical. If both butts seem to be larger than what you aimed for, a certain amount fat will be removed from both butts through liposuction.


The Brazilian butt lift is an effective surgical procedure to give your buttocks projection and shape. The surgery sculpts the derrière, making them curvy, sexy, and perky. The procedure makes this possible by using your own body fat, which is removed from localized regions of your body through liposuction. This fat is then injected inside of your buttocks after running it through a sophisticated purification process.

The results attained with the Brazilian butt lift are permanent in most cases. However, if at some point after the procedure, you feel that the results are unsatisfactory, you can choose to do a revision surgery to correct the shortcomings or aesthetic imperfections. Keep in mind that there is also a possibility that factors like aging, weight loss and gravity will change the projection, volume and contour of your buttocks over time. This can happen even decades after the original surgery. If you feel that these factors have negatively affected the aesthetics of your derrière, you should visit your plastic surgeon to discuss a revision or touch-up surgery. The procedure can help regain the initial aesthetic results to a good extent. What is important is that you have realistic expectations to avoid dissatisfaction.
