At our practice in Richmond, fat transfer—or many times associated with a Brazilian butt lift—has become an increasingly more sought-out procedure. As a plastic surgeon, sometimes fat can be your friend. Some people develop areas of the body which are not as plump as they would like. In particular, many people want to have a fuller and more projecting butt. Other patients might have an indentation from prior liposuction. Taking fatty tissue from one part of the body and using it in another is known as “fat transfer,” and it can be very effective in improving your shape.
Many patients ask how a fat transfer is performed. The fat is carefully removed through tiny incisions, similar to liposuction. The living fat cells (adipocytes) are then placed where they are needed, to give that area a fuller, more plump appearance. The fat cells then become a living part of that new area. Because fat transfer uses your own tissues, it is done without using any kind of foreign materials you would have to worry about in the future, such as an implant.
As one of the more decorated plastic surgeons in Richmond, Dr. Hubert has a firm understanding of the surgery. If you meet the following criteria, you’re probably a good candidate for our BBL in Richmond:
Candidates should be in good overall health and not smoke
Candidates should have realistic expectations of the surgery
Candidates should have sufficient fat in other areas that can be transferred
Our patients have been very excited about this procedure. The following are some of the advantages we’ve seen first-hand:
Since the procedure uses your own fat, the results will look and feel natural
Get the buttocks you’ve always dreamed of!
Fit better into the clothes you desire to wear
No large injections and fairly quick recovery time

If you and Dr. Hubert both feel that a Brazilian Butt Lift is the best procedure for you, surgery will be booked. Dr. Hubert will have specific questions about diet, medications, and past surgeries.
When fat is transferred to correct a flattened buttock, this is sometimes called a “Brazilian butt lift.” The Brazilian butt lift also combines taking the fat from the lower back and the inner thighs, so that this sculpting improves the overall appearance of the buttock area even more.
By adding your fat to the correct areas of your buttocks, it can help to give better projection, fill hollow areas, and get rid of a sagging appearance. All of this is done through tiny incisions with a minimal amount of scarring and a natural appearance.
These procedures are usually done as outpatient surgery, so you go home the same day. After a fat transfer or a Brazilian butt lift, you will wear a compression garment to keep the new fat in an appropriate position until it heals. Antibiotics by mouth are taken, and for the Brazilian butt lift, you have to avoid sitting for at least two weeks (except for using the toilet). Bruising and mild to moderate pain are common but tend to go away on their own rather quickly.
The cost of a Richmond Brazilian butt lift or fat transfer can vary on a number of factors. During your consultation with Dr. Hubert, he’ll go over all associated costs, financing options, and his excerpt recommendations.
