What Is A Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
The Brazilian Butt Lift surgical procedure, (also referred to as a “BBL”, “butt enhancement”, or “butt augmentation”) is a procedure that involves the transfer of fat from one or more areas of the body into the butt cheeks and the hip region. The fat is harvested through liposuction and is then injected in the desired area.
This body enhancing procedure is designed to lift the buttocks, add volume and projection to the buttock, and enhance the overall shape of the buttock, which gives the patient a more youthful and perky appearance.* Dr. Mendieta offers two different methods to patients looking to augment their buttock; fat transfer to the buttocks and gluteal implants. Dr. Mendieta’s preferred method is to use the patient’s own fat. This method also known as “The Mendieta Technique” consisting of 3 dimensional body contouring in which Dr. Mendieta will create a sexy silhouette by contouring the patient’s midsection giving them a smaller waistline with beautiful sexy curves and transferring the fat to the buttock and/or hip area to create more of an hourglass figure.* Using the patient’s own fat also gives a more natural feel and appearance than a gluteal implant. (Dr. Mendieta uses gluteal implants on only a very few select patients that are needing more of a reconstructive buttock surgery.* Depending on the individual’s preference and anatomy Dr. Mendieta will custom tailor each procedure to meet the specific needs of each person.*

This body enhancing procedure is designed to lift the buttocks to higher position, add volume, and enhance its shape.* Dr. Mendieta offers two techniques to patients; fat transfer to buttocks, and buttocks implants. He will recommend the best option depending the individual’s preference and anatomy. However, he usually performs fat transfer in order to achieve a more natural feel and appearance.* Dr. Mendieta’s signature “Highlight Liposculpting and Lipo Fat Transfer” 3D approach helps to accentuate the patient’s curves.*
An added benefit of this technique is the combination of liposuction surgery (“lipoplasty”), which provides the patient with a more contoured outcome.* Dr. Mendieta will remove excess fat from another part of the body, harvest it, and inject the fat cells into the buttocks. His preferred method of injection is through layering; Dr. Mendieta will inject pearl-size drops into different layers of the muscles and fat. By placing them close to a blood supply, the harvested fat cells are more likely to survive and not be reabsorbed by the body.*
Following your Brazilian butt lift surgery, you will be required to wear a supportive garment for six to eight weeks. Recovery time will be dependent on whether liposuction was performed or not, with most patients being able to return to work in 10 to 14 days.* Further details regarding the Brazilian butt lift recovery period will be discussed during your visit near Coconut Grove.
