Is It Possible to Get the Brazilian Butt Lift Without Being Put Under General Anesthesia Instead by Getting an Epidural?

Brazilian Butt Lift Usually Requires A General Anesthetic

On a practical basis, it is not possible to have a Brazilian Butt Lift without a general anesthetic. The need to harvest fat from the abdomen, flanks and other body areas for the fat volume needed for  injection makes anything less than a general anesthetic unlikely for most patients.

Brazilian Buttlift with Epidural Instead of General Anesthesia

   Much of this will depend upon the areas you want liposuctioned as the level of anesthesia will prevent liposuction of areas higher on the front or back.  There are additional ways to circumvent general anesthesia but this type of anesthesia tends to keep the patient the most comfortable when liposuctioning 5 liters and transferring 1200 cc to 1500 cc per buttock.  Find the plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
