Brazilian Butt Lift in Santa Barbara, CA
A Brazilian butt lift is an excellent way to get a perkier, firmer backside.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is performed by retrieving excess fat from areas of your body, including the abdomen or thighs, through liposuction. Once it is harvested, the fat is processed then injected into the buttocks at which time, Dr. Yegiyants sculpts the fat to create a more lifted appearance. Fat grafting produces the most natural looking buttocks with a restored contour.
Why Choose a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift provides a natural contoured boost of the buttocks without the need for major surgery. Patients with enough excess amounts of fat deposits in other areas get a bonus of eliminating those pockets of fat to create more contour on that area as well.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The best candidates for a Brazilian butt lift have a flat or sagging backside that needs a little lift. To get their new curves through fat grafting, it is important to have a few extra pounds of excess fat on their bodies. This gives the surgeon the best opportunity to create the most naturally contoured appearance. Dr. Yegiyants talks to her patients about their desires and concerns, then looks over their medical history and evaluates the buttock area to determine if a Brazilian butt lift or other treatment is the best option to achieve their desired look.
How is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?
Buttock augmentation is a surgical procedure that reshapes the gluteal area by lifting and contouring it. To achieve a natural look, the procedure is done with fat grafting, taking excess fat from other areas of the body, such as the back, abdomen, flanks and thighs, and purifying it then injecting it into the buttocks. Dr. Yegiyants injects the fat in small portions in multiple planes to allow the body to accept the most amount of fat.
How is the Recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
As always, the biggest benefit of a Brazilian butt lift with fat grafting is that patients get double the results from the procedure. The recovery time takes about two weeks, although the swelling and bruising may take up to six weeks to fully disappear. Patients wear compression garments during the first couple of weeks to minimize swelling and discomfort. It is typical for them to return to work after about two weeks, as it is necessary to avoid directly sitting on the buttocks during the first two weeks. Additionally, the area where the liposuction is performed requires some healing as well.
When Will I See the Results from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The full results take several weeks and are very subtle. The goal is to look phenomenal and natural without anyone noticing that the buttocks has been altered.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in Santa Barbara?
A Brazilian butt lift varies in terms of cost with each patient based on the extent of the procedure as well as from where and how much fat is harvested to achieve the desired look of the buttocks. We discuss the costs, including payment and financing options, with our patients during their initial consultation with Dr. Yegiyants.
