Length of surgery time for brazilian buttock lift

This depends on the size of the patient and the number of areas being treated by liposuction but typically takes between 2 and 3 hours. Most surgeons have an efficient system in place for harvesting and processing the fat with the assistance of surgical technicians which helps facilitate the entire process. Discuss this with your board certified plastic surgeon at the time of your consultation for more information.

Great Results Take Time

The Brazillian Butt Lift involves liposuction of the abdomen, trunk and back in addition to shaping of the buttocks with fat transfer. The quality of liposuction is as important as the quality of fat processing and fat transfer. Special techniques should be employed during the transfer to optimize viability of the transferred fat. The procedure typically takes from 3-6 hours when performed for optimal outcome. As mentioned earlier it is not a race. Even patients that may not have very much fat to harvest will require liposuction of multiple zones in order to extract enough fat to get a good result. As with any procedure postoperative care is also very important to maximize the outcome.

Should we be racing to complete a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Hi there-

The operation will take between 2-6 hours, depending on who does it for you...

Obviously it is in your best interests to have the operation be as short as is possible- but only as long as the time allotted still allows performance of a meticulous and careful operation. In other words, if the operation is TOO short, I would worry that the grafting technique was sloppy and your success would suffer.

It should also be obvious that the time will depend on how many areas of your body are being suctioned as well.

Brazilian butt lift and the time of surgery

The Brazilian butt lift is a liposuction and fat injection. The majority of time of the surgery is a liposuction. In my hands the average time for the liposuction is 3 hours the average time for the fat injection is 30 to 40 min. So you see it's the amount of liposuction determines how long the surgery will take.
