Dr. Rodriguez’s Brazilian Butt Lift in the news

Look at the cover of almost  any magazine, and it is clear – sizes 0 and 2 are over. Young women today do not want to look like Nicole Ritchie, Paris Hilton, or Kate Moss – they want to look like Michelle Obama! Healthy and curvy are in. Shapeless is out. Women today want to look like real women.

 Dr. Rodriguez’s Brazilian butt lift technique is featured in the April/May Washington DC-Baltimore area Women’s Journal publication. Dr. Rodriguez is a Yale trained Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has been practicing for over 20 years. He specializes in procedures which involve fat grafting.

For the Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Rodriguez utilizes special fat processing techniques which help patients achieve long lasting and permanent results. The buttock is first contoured using liposuction. The extracted fat is decanted, processed, and centrifuged. The resulting ‘good fat’ is then reinjected into the buttocks via hundreds of micro-fat injections. The result is a sensuous sculpted body with a prominent, perky, buttock.

    i would like to have fat taking out of my stomach and injected into my butt, hips, breast. How much does it cost to have this done?
    • Dr. Ricardo L Rodriguez says:

      Gloria: Kelly, at kelly@cosmeticsurg.net will get you all the info you need. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
    • Dr. Ricardo L Rodriguez says:

      Gloria: You definitely can, and we do a lot of these procedures. In general, I don't like grafting to the butt at the same time as the breasts because to protect the butt, you have to lay on your stomach. Then you are squishing the breasts, and that is not a good thing for the fat cells in the breast. If you lay on your back to protect the breast, that is not good for the cells in the butt. For this reason I recommend doing either breast or butt at one time, but not both together. Contact Kelly at kelly@cosmeticsurg.net she'll be more than happy to help you!

    I Have a few question. I am very interested in the fat replacement procedure. Once you replace the adipose tx from the adomen to the buttock is that also a tummy tuck as well. ? Once the procedure is over how soon can you sit on your buttock? Where do you get the garment from to wear that is recommend or do you wear any tight fitted under garment .I am in good health and i weight about 145 pound my ideal weight is 135 to 140 but my buttock is small all of my weight gain is from the stomach up will you still be able to transfer adipose tx from other area if there is not enough adipose tx in the adomen area? Thank you for your response.
    • Dr. Ricardo L Rodriguez says:

      Angela, thanx for the interest. Usually we obtain the fat from the abdomen as liposuction. On a few patients we do a tummy tuck. That depends on wether the patient has excess skin or separated abdominal muscles. The usual time before you can sit is 3 weeks. We usually provide a specialized garment for you to wear. If you think you are a candidate, contact kelly@cosmeticsurg.net. We will be happy to hear from you!

    I'm VERY interested in having my body recontoured to be more shapely & am deciding between the Brazilian Butt Lift & the B'More Butt Lift; but I have a few questions. 1) During the 3 week post-op period after a Brazilian Butt Lift (note: I also want some volume added to my hips), what do people do all day long? In other words, since you can't sit or lay on your back or hips, how does one read, watch TV, go online?? Does it drive these patients crazy? I can't imagine doing those things laying on my stomach. Any suggestions? 2) I'm concerned about the weight I'd have to gain to even HAVE a Brazilian Butt Lift causing my skin to loose elasticity? If I gain wieght, but don't get any larger than I have ever been, will this cause problems with elasticity?

      To answer the first question, all I can tell you is patients tolerate it very well. If you have a consult, we can put you in touch with people who have had the procedure. There is a lot you can do with creative use of pillows and building up different areas. People from out of town stay here for a week or so, and I can tell you even in the confines of a hotel room patients manage very well. It is not a painful procedure. As to your second question, loss of skin elasticity happens when you gain a lot of weight then lose a lot of weight. This happens with massively obese people who lose a large percentage of body weight. I don't think you will lose elasticity from gaining a little weight. That is even if you need to gain weight. You may not need to. I would have to look at pictures to get a better idea.
