Expectation mismatches in plastic surgery


Trying to have someone else's reesult will set you up for an expectation mismatch if your body woun't allow that result to happen.  Be careful to discuss your expectations with your surgeon and ask them if they are honestly achievable or not.

Brazilian butt lift revision

Setting realistic expectations is an essential part of the initial consultation.  Matching your wishes with what is achievable with your body is key.   The earliest that I would perform a revision would be 6 months.  This allows enough time for all of the swelling and scar tissue to settle and soften. Seek an in person consultation with a plastic surgeon who specializes in gluteal shaping.  Best of luck.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Hello, and thank you for reaching out to us.  Without seeing your before-surgery pictures, it is difficult to determine what effect the surgery had on your buttock.

Generally, patients who are unhappy with the results of their Brazilian butt lift suffer from a low retention rate; the amount of fat that survives the transfer from your abdomen to your buttock.  This is part your genetic makeup and part the skill of your surgeon.

Make sure you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in the Brazilian butt lift.  Request before and after photos, which should be readily available through the surgeons office.  

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Dr. Placik for his kind words.

Please let us know how everything turns out.  Normally, a patient looking for additional surgery will have to wait for the first to be completely healed, which can take up to 6 months.

Brazilian Butt Lift Revision

When you are fully healed from your first procedure, and you have more fat available to perform the procedure again, you can seek a doctor for a revision. I usually suggest waiting 6 months. To achieve the results you are looking for, you needed more than 500cc of fat per buttock. I believe I can give you the butt you are looking for. Internet conversations can never replace an in person consultation, so be sure to find a board certified plastic surgeon.

Buttocks augmentation and fat grafting


Buttocks augmentation via fat grafting has some degree of uncertainty with respect to survival ot the fat grafts.  It's best to wait several months to allow for complete healing in order to plan a repeat procedure.  The minor dimpling and asymmetries may soften and can be addressed more precisely at that time. 

Good luck and remember to have resonable expectations for improvement.

Achievable results


It is critical to understand what this surgery can do for  you.  Although I've done this operation repeatedly, it is one of the most delicate operations in terms of clarifying expectations.  This is probably because there is an element of body contouring with variable amounts of fat removed that will improve certain areas, there is an ill defined amount of skin retraction and an unknown amount of fat graft survival.  Properly done by a board certified plastic surgeon, the operation can be very effective.  Best wishes

Buttock enhancement


There are few problems with your results.

That is why We empasize that your surgeon be an experienced BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON (AMERICAN BOARD OF PLASTIC SURGERY)

Otherwise the repair becomes more expensive.

You nne a butt that fits your body, not some one else immage.

You need to wait about 6 month before you can have another surgery.

Depending on examination, is there fat necrosis, fat resorption, infection all are factors to decide when the repair needs to be done. Also do you have enough fat now to correct ahe deformities and enhance the buttocks?
