Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift and Butt Augmentation in Richmond, VA With Dr. John Zinsser

The buttocks play a critical role in creating a well-proportioned and attractive figure. While diet and exercise can help you achieve toned muscles and a healthy weight, your genetic makeup largely determines your butt’s shape and proportion. Because of this, some patients can end up with an unshapely butt, no matter how much they exercise.

With Brazilian butt lift or buttock augmentation surgery, you can reshape your buttocks and surrounding areas to enhance the contour with a fuller, rounder appearance. For patients looking for a rejuvenated, more youthful-looking figure, buttock augmentation provides subtle, natural-looking results under the skilled hands of Dr. John Zinsser. With over 20 years of unmatched expertise and passion for helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals, Dr. Zinsser is one of the best BBL surgeons in Richmond.

What Can Buttock Augmentation Accomplish?

Buttock augmentation can give you a fuller, rounder, more attractive backside, helping you feel more confident in jeans, skirts, and swimsuits. Butt lifts aim to add shape and volume to your buttocks, rather than decrease their size. The Brazilian butt lift is a sought-after option that uses your body fat, harvested from areas such as the thighs or abdomen, enhancing your butt’s contour, shape, size, and appearance.

Butt lifts offer many benefits, including:

  • Added fullness, projection, and shape
  • Enhanced proportions to your figure
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Elimination of sagging skin issues
  • Corrected buttock asymmetry

Is Butt Augmentation Right for Me?

If you feel you have lost your butt’s natural shape, butt augmentation can enhance your backside by creating more roundness and a better shape and contour, helping you feel more confident. BBL can enhance your butt’s appearance and reduce the appearance of fat in areas such as the hips, thighs, and abdomen.

After your team greets you and checks you in, Dr. Zinsser will evaluate you and perform surgical markings. He will ensure you are comfortable before entering the operating room. Once you are safely resting under local or general anesthesia, Dr. Zinsser will begin your butt lift procedure.

Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

Dr. Zinsser will begin your BBL procedure by creating small incisions for liposuction to harvest fat from areas of your body, including thighs, hips, and abdomen. He then purifies the extracted fat and injects it into your buttocks to create a fuller, rounded look.

Butt Lift Aftercare

Following your procedure, you will need to wear a compression garment to avoid swelling. Swelling and bruising are common following this procedure.

After your procedure, it is critical to avoid sitting directly on the buttocks for several weeks, as determined by Dr. Zinsser’s instructions, to prevent damaging the fat grafts. During this period, you will also need to sleep on your stomach or side.

How Soon Will I See My Richmond Butt Augmentation Results?

While the results of butt augmentation are visible immediately, you may also experience swelling and bruising that obscure your results for a few weeks. Your body may reabsorb some of the initial volume you experience following a BBL; however, most patients retain 60 to 80% of the transferred fat. Due to this, you might not notice your final outcome until six to 12 months following the procedure. Multiple procedures may be necessary to achieve your desired results.

With your continued heathy diet and exercise regimen, the effects of your butt augmentation should last for years. Maintaining your stable weight is vital, as significant weight fluctuations may affect your results.

Richmond, VA, BBL Procedure FAQs

As Brazilian butt lift procedures are highly customizable, the cost depends on each patient’s needs. Dr. Zinsser will provide an estimate for a more accurate Brazilian butt lift cost in Richmond, VA, during your consultation.

During your buttock augmentation procedure, you will be under anesthesia, so you should not feel discomfort. Be sure to address all pain concerns with Dr. Zinsser during your consultation.

Typically, patients should avoid any strenuous exercises for four to six weeks following a buttock augmentation procedure.

Typically, BBL patients take at least one to two weeks off work. During your recovery, you will need to wear an appropriate compression garment and avoid sitting, laying on your backside, or buttocks for two weeks.

After a BBL, putting pressure on the newly placed fat grafts can reduce circulation, which can damage the transferred fat cells. You will need to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for two weeks, except on the toilet. Instead, you must sit on a rolled-up towel, small cushion, or specially designed BBL pillow. Most patients can return to sitting normally four weeks after their BBL procedure.

Fat necrosis, or death of the fat cells, is the most common complication following BBL. This condition occurs when the transplanted cells do not establish an adequate blood supply. It can result in small, hard lumps or nodules under the skin. Often, these are harmless; however, they can become painful or uncomfortable. In most cases, the body will break down the fat nodules over time without further intervention.

To avoid fat necrosis following your BBL, be sure to thoroughly follow Dr. Zinsser’s post-operative instructions. These may include avoiding wearing overly tight or restrictive clothing, avoiding strenuous exercise, and wearing your compression garment to support your contours.

Brazilian butt lift results are permanent. However, the transplanted fat will behave like any other fat on your body, responding to weight fluctuations. You must be at or near your ideal weight before your BBL.

Dramatic weight loss or gain after a BBL can significantly impact your new look. Maintain your results by continuing the healthy diet and exercise habits you established before getting your BBL.

Since the BBL procedure removes fat from an undesirable location and grafts it into the buttocks, it redistributes your weight instead of helping you shed pounds. However, with a skilled surgeon like Dr. Zinsser, the liposuction procedure will sculpt improved contours in specific areas, such as the abdomen, back, and flanks, enhancing your overall figure.
