There are a number of buttock augmentation procedures available that can create curves and a shapelier butt. Dr. Connors and Dr. Hart offer the Brazilian butt lift to individuals in the Atlanta area and prefers this augmentation method for patients who desire added volume and shape to their backside. During a Brazilian butt lift procedure, the butt is lifted and reshaped by using the patient’s own fat tissue that is taken from another part of the body. The fat removal is accomplished via liposuction. Patients frequently consider this an added perk. During your consultation, one of our plastic surgeons will evaluate your candidacy for this procedure.

Brazilian Butt Lift Reviews
"This week I had the pleasure of having both BBL and fillers done at Dr.John Connors gorgeous, and super convenient for suburban Atlanta folks, new Avalon office. This is my first procedure I’ve had done with his office, and look forward to having the wonderful women on their laser and injectable team help me fight the clock! I want to look natural and not over done, and that is exactly the results I’ve achieved. The staff is down to earth, relatable and work with you towards the results you want. A little further down the road I may step up my age-fighting with a face lift, and Dr.Connors will be my guy. He did a septoplasty and rhinoplasty on my son two years ago. His results were absolutely wonderful. His breathing is now normal, and his nose, which had been badly broken a few times, looks great, very masculine and bump free. He’s been thrilled with his results. Also, a bonus if you are getting fillers, and are a needle-phobe, they offer nitrous, same stuff you can get at the dentist, to help take the edge off with no side affects."- A.G. / Google / Mar 19, 2019

"Halo Pro & BBL 1st time laser - I’m almost 33 years old and have had significant sun damage, rosacea, and noticeable pores and vascular areas on my face that age me. Fillers and Botox are great, but the inconsistency of skin tone and color really make my makeup routine a timely affair. So, tomorrow morning I’m going back to my tried and true Plastic Surgeon’s office for a dual laser punch to knock these skin imperfections out. Heidi at Dr. John Connors office in Atlanta will be performing the laser procedure.It’s my first laser treatment but much needed. My biggest concern is my boyfriend coming home from his work trip early and seeing me swollen as hell... ( he’s supposed to be out of town on work through Sunday but he senses something is up lol)If you have any suggestions before hand or for post-procedure pointers to heal faster and swell less, please share! I’ll share every bit of my experience along the way and post photos."- K. / RealSelf / Feb 11, 2019

During the initial consultation, the body will be assessed so that it can be determined where to perform liposuction in order to extract the necessary amount of fat needed to perform the transfer. Multiple donor sites may be considered. The fat will be removed and grafted for a healthy, effective transfer. It will then be injected through a syringe into the buttocks. This process will take place over several steps, and many layers may be used until the desired result is achieved. The incisions from a Brazilian butt lift are very small and thus scarring after the procedure is minimal.
A Brazilian butt lift is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete depending on how many donor sites are used and how many layers it takes to achieve the desired fullness. Following surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas as well as on the buttocks. Patients will find it difficult to sit, but are encouraged to do so once the swelling has subsided. It will take about 3 full months for the body to recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.
Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs
If the injections are done correctly, the result will look and feel natural. During the procedure, additional liposuction may be used to help smooth out uneven skin, as well as ensure that the surface has a correct and even contour. It is important to find a reputable and highly-skilled surgeon with a special expertise in performing the Brazilian butt lift surgery.
Fat Transfer or Implants?
Both techniques are commonly used by cosmetic surgeons and can achieve good results. Some patients simply do not want a foreign device in their body and feel that the fat transfer method is safe and natural. A disadvantage of fat transfers, however, is that they may not last as long as an implant. Some of the injected fat will absorb naturally into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique during the consultation so the right decision can be made.
Weight gain could compromise the results of the surgery. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
