                   About 25% of my patients have had Brazilian buttlifts, many with situations similar to yours. You can get a dramatic improvement with a revision.  I perform about 500 Brazilian buttlifts each year, and this procedure is the most surgeon dependent plastic surgery procedure.  Much of the grafting result depends upon the techniques utilized and the postoperative care.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Thank you for submitting your question and photo. I am sorry your disappointed with your result. Your very early in the healing phase.  You have a noticeable result in your before and after photo.   In general, it may take up to six months for the swelling to subside and the true result seen. If needed, a revision can be performed after 6 months. Discuss your concerns with your surgeon. I hope this helps. Best wishes

Brazilian Butt Lift

The pictures show some improvement but it is too early to judge. There is a lot of swelling now. Wait about 3-6 months for all the swelling to go away and then reevaluate. You still have some fat to redo the surgery again

Discuss your concerns with your PS of course , and the possibilities of getting a revision if necessary  . It is still too soon to evaluate final results .

Early Results are Good

Thank you for your pictures. If you just take a honest look at your pictures you can see that you are contouring nicely. This will improve over the next 8 to 12 week.

Good luck

Do you know how much was transferred to each side? I routinely transfer between 1200 to 1800 cc to each side. Please follow up with your doctor as these issues require the attention of a plastic surgeon.
