What is it?
A Brazilian butt lift procedure will enhance the contour and shape of your butt as desired. If you are unhappy with the shape or look of your buttocks, a Brazilian butt lift will help you achieve a more tight and toned appearance. Using your own fat from other areas of your body, by liposuction of the abdomen, hips and/or thighs, a surgeon will enhance the size and shape of the buttocks by injecting that fat back into your backside. Since the surgery uses the patients own fat, it is the most natural way to augment your buttocks. Candidates usually have a flat backside and/or sagging, asymmetrical, small or disproportionate buttocks. Brazilian butt lift techniques vary from surgeon to surgeon, yet most procedures involve a fat extraction with liposuction, processing of the fat, and reinjection of the fat into the buttock area. With proper injections, the fat transfer should be long lasting and most people recover in a week or two.
Average cost: $4,000 – $6,500
Step one – The initial consultation and physical exam to customize your procedure.
Step two – General anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
Step three – Fat extraction by liposuction of the abdomen, hips and/or thighs. During fat
extraction, the buttock is first contoured by liposuction to reshape the backside.
Step four – Fat processing and purification. About 25% of fat cells qualify for re-injection.
Step five – Re-injection of fat into the buttocks at different areas and different depths to
achieve the most toned and smooth finish.
Step four – Closely follow at home recovery instructions to ensure optimal results.
Dr. Koumanis is truly amazing. Our son, Noah, was eight when he was bitten on the face by our dog in June 2015. A piece of his top left lip was ripped out, his cheek was torn open, and he had a slice in his bottom lip. Dr.Koumanis arrived in the emergency room, so calm and sure of just what needed to be done. He reattached the piece of lip in exactly the right position by matching the direction of the tiny hairs on his upper lip. over the last 18 months, he has done a follow-up surgery and seen Noah multiple times to check on how his face is healing. We could not be happier or more amazed with the results. Noah is ten now, and if you saw him on the street, you would not be able to tell the severity of his injuries based on how amazing he looks today. Noah has never been embarrassed or distressed about his lip (he was cracking jokes in the ER). That is just who he is as a person, but his continued confidence in spite of what could have been debilitating is a testament to just what a spectacular job Dr.Koumanis did on reconstructing his beautiful face. Our family cannot recommend Dr.Koumanis highly enough. Thank you so much. – Melanie P., Ballston Spa, NY
Dr.Koumanis you are incredible! I’m very grateful to have you as my doctor. I feel like a new woman who feels sexy again. After years of taking care of everybody else, I finally did something for me. My results are better than expected. I actually miss seeing you and your wonderful staff. Thank you for the beautiful work you did on me! – Lynne, Burnt Hills, NY
Very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable surgeon. Dr.Koumanis restored me to better than natural after the scary nightmare diagnosis of breast cancer. I found him to be the most humanistic, caring and talented surgeon in the Northeast. He has the utmost concern for your feelings as well as an expert artistic vision for your best outcome. He really is a reconstructive genius after breast cancer! At the onset of the treatment ( a double mastectomy), he said that in a bit of time I wouldn’t think about the reconstruction at all … he was right! Thank you Doctor Koumanis and your wonderful staff for walking me through a darker place. I came out of the other side with my head held high and a new sense of self-worth! Sincerely, – L.M., Altamont NY
