B-more Butt Lift
What is the B'more Butt Lift?
The B'more Butt Lift is a brand new body sculpting procedure which I developed in recognition of our practice location, Baltimore, and the desire for women to enhance the buttocks they already have.
It offers women an alternative to the wildly popular Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, which I've been performing for many years. The Brazilian Butt Lift is still the procedure of choice to get the maximum augmentation of your buttocks, creating a sensual sculpted body profile. However, by removing fat from strategic areas with liposuction techniques, the B'more Butt Lift can greatly enhance the shape of the buttocks that you already have!
What problems does a B'More Butt Lift address?
I want the Brazilian Butt Lift, but I can't commit to not sitting for 3 weeks. Is there another option?
Not all patients are well suited for the B-more Butt Lift. The fat distribution pattern in your lower body must be evaluated to determine if you are a candidate. The B'more butt lift was designed to address the following concerns:
- lack of definition in waist/hips/buttocks
- unbalanced figure
How is the B'more Butt Lift performed?
Your B'more Butt Lift procedure is performed by me, Dr. Rodriguez, in our AAAASF Accredited Surgery center located here in Baltimore. I use IV sedation instead of General Anesthesia to make your recovery as quick as possible. For the utmost safety, your anesthesia is administered only by Board Certified Anesthesiologists.
I use an extended liposuction technique where I sculpt the love handles and triangle above the buttocks. Read more about shaping the buttocks with liposuction to love handles and posterior triangle.
How is it different from the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The B'more Butt enhances what you already have, without the use of fat injections. The Brazilian Butt Lift will augment and make your buttock bigger with fat injections while the B'more Butt Lift will enhance your body shape through body sculpting to make your waist smaller and your buttocks appear more prominent.
In the Brazilian Butt Lift, I remove unwanted fat from areas of your body, process the fat, and then reinject hundreds of micro fat injections into your buttocks. You get lipo-sculpting of the body *and* fat injections to the buttocks. Patients come from all over the world to have the Brazilian Butt Lift here and the patient satisfaction rate is very high. To read more about this procedure please be sure to see our Brazilian Butt Lift procedure section and also watch Dr. Rodriguez's Brazilian Butt Lift video.
Why did you develop the B'more Butt Lift?
If the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is so great, why did I create a new butt lifting technique? Easy. I wanted to give patients more options! It is less expensive and requires less recovery time, yet still provides some enhancement to the buttocks profile.
Some patients cannot spare the three week recovery period needed for a Brazilian Butt Lift. The B'more Butt Lift has a quicker recovery time, 7-10 days, comparable to liposuction recovery time. This is preferable for the person whose work or family obligations impose time limitations. Other patients do not have a lot of donor fat, but want a sensuous figure. The specialized and targeted liposuction techniques open the possibility of a more sensuous midsection to these patients.
The B'more Butt Lift offers a more subtle result, for the patient who wants buttocks enhancement without a significant volume increase. Some patients may want a more defined, perky and attractive backside, not necessarily a significant increase. For these patients the B'more Butt Lift is ideal. Finally, the procedure is shorter and considerably less expensive than the Brazilian Butt Lift.
We feel that the B'more Butt Lift procedure opens the possibility of a more sensuous figure to many patients who otherwise may not have thought they were candidates for the procedure.
What are the pre-operative requirements?
In my surgery center, we require patients to get a medical clearance two weeks prior to surgery. An H &P (history and physical) and a CBC blood test are the minimum requirements if you are a healthy adult. Additional pre-op requirements include:
- Your BMI (Body Mass Index) must be less than 35 kg/m2. This is calculated based on your height and weight, and is important to reduce the risk of post op complications.
- Quit smoking 2 weeks prior to surgery
- Stop taking multivitamins, herbals, and aspirin two weeks prior to surgery
- Have an Physical examination (H&P) and CBC (anemia detection) to clear you for surgery
- NPO after midnight the night before surgery
What is B'more Butt Lift recovery like?
The post operative period for the B'more Butt Lift is 1-2 weeks, which is much less than the 3 weeks required for the Brazilian Butt Lift. Additionally, you ARE able to sit on your buttocks immediately following the B'more Butt Lift surgery. In summary, the post operative recovery includes the following:
- drink plenty of fluids during the first few days following surgery
- wear garment with pads continuously for the first 5 days
- no showering or bathing for the first 5 days
- post operative appointment in the office at day 5
- back to work in 7-10 days
- resume normal activities at 4 weeks
What are the risks and possible complications?
As with any surgery, there are possible complications following a B'more Butt Lift, including - but not limted to:
- irregular contours or uneven results that require a revision
- skin necrosis
- lidocaine toxicity
- pulmonary embolus
How much does the B'more Butt Lift cost?
The total cost for a B'more Butt Lift ranges in total cost from $6,000 - $8,000, depending on the number of areas liposuctioned. Call the office at 410-494-8100 for more details.
