Botched Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery–Can I Look Normal Again?

Feb 25, 2019 | Body

On the rise in popularity, the Brazilian butt lift also known as a BBL, is quickly becoming one of the most common cosmetic procedures done throughout the world. Advancements in medical technology have allowed this procedure to be an alternative option to getting a fuller, rounder, shapelier backside, without the surgical need for butt implants. Unfortunately, with the rise in numbers, comes a rise in the number of “botched” Brazilian butt lifts seen with underqualified and inexperienced surgeons trying to tap into this cosmetic procedure. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jaime Schwartz of Beverly Hills, is one of the leading revision specialists in the country able to help with “botched” Brazilian butt lifts. He can provide you a solution in order to get you the results you had wanted the 1st time around.

Quick BBL overview

A Brazilian butt lift procedure is a 2-step process. Through small incisions, liposuction with a cannula instrument performs the cosmetic procedure of extracting excess fatty tissue from another part of the body typically in the stomach, waistline, or thighs. Once the fat is extracted, it is purified so that only the healthiest fat cells are transplanted. Then, this fat is injected into the buttocks with precise layering and massaging so that it settles correctly and offers a smooth result. It takes surgeon skill, experience, and keen eye to ensure that the contouring is correct and that the gluteal area has the desired shape and volume. The end result with Dr. Schwartz is a fuller, more defined butt. Unfortunately, Beverly Hills patients that have this treatment with an inexperienced surgeon can have botched surgical outcomes.

The Brazilian butt lift complex issue...

The main reason a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon should perform a Brazilian butt lift is because the procedure is done in an area of the body that has several major arteries. If fat deposits are made incorrectly, during the grafting process, it can cause serious, life-threatening complications. Individuals turning to cheaper options or going out of the country to get a better deal on their BBL are putting their health at risk. In some cases, foreign substances are being used to provide extra volume causing severe infections. Botched liposuction results, in some instances, are so severe that patients can’t fully return to normal even with a revision. Choosing a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon with little experience, qualifications, or training is not only cosmetically putting your Brazilian butt lift results at risk, but also putting your life in danger as well.

Main cosmetic reasons for a Brazilian butt lift revision…

The main reason patients have problems or complications is typically due to an under-qualified surgeon or non board-certified doctor performing their initial Brazilian butt lift procedure. This can cause unsightly results and post-surgical complications. Since this procedure involves different processes, liposuction and fat grafting, then one or both can be done incorrectly. Here are some common mistakes:

  • Aggressive fat removal with liposuction can leave skin at the location site with divets or fat pockets due to too much fat being removed.

  • Improper fat grafting to the buttocks can cause rippling leaving the butt not smooth in appearance with deep grooves or “trenches” in the skin.

  • Improper fat grafting can cause the buttocks to not be contoured properly. Volume is improperly added and patients are cosmetically left with their buttocks sitting too high or in some cases too low which makes them look disproportional.

  • Not enough fat is grafted during the initial procedure therefore after the body has naturally absorbed some of it, patients are left unsatisfied with the end result.
