Questions to Ask Your Doctor Before a Brazilian Butt Lift

Before any major cosmetic procedure, it is incredibly important that you ask the proper questions. If you aren’t asking the right questions, how can you expect the results you want? By asking the questions you need to ask, you guarantee that you are getting the proper procedure, your desired results are possible, and that you and your surgeon are on the same page. For any and all of the questions you may have regarding a Brazilian butt lift in Bakersfield, contact Bella Health and Beauty today.

Over the past few years, the popularity of the Brazilian Butt Lift has exploded. Lots of surgeons are performing this fat grafting, highly-technical procedure that requires lots of skill and technique from the surgeon. Because of the technique-dependent nature of this particular procedure, some surgeons have seen much better results than others. The power you hold, as the consumer, is great! You are able to compare results between surgeons and ask them questions that will help you establish who the right surgeon for you is.

The information you can gather from asking the RIGHT questions will help you determine who you want to perform your Brazilian Butt Lift. These are the 6 most important questions you can ask before your butt lift.

1. Are you board certified? By who?

This is always the first question you should ask when you are dealing with a new doctor, particularly a plastic surgeon. Specifically, you should inquire whether or not they are Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. There are many doctors out there who are certified by another board, and take advantage of loopholes and the lack of patient information to perform plastic surgery anyway. If the doctor you are consulting with does not give you a straight answer, cannot provide documentation, or is not totally transparent about where their certification comes from, walk out! There are many plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery that are ready, willing, and able to perform your procedure, and these are doctors you CAN trust.

2. How many of these procedures have you performed?

You don’t want to be the first Brazilian Butt Lift your plastic surgeon has performed, right? So, one of your first questions should be to find out how many of these procedures they have performed. As a part of this, asking for before and after photos of previous clients and seeing at least 10 great results should be one of your criteria. This gives the surgeon the opportunity to show you their experience with different body types and different levels of difficulty, giving you faith that they will be able to handle your particular case well, too.

3. How is the Brazilian Butt Lift performed?

Finding out how your doctor performs this surgery is key. There are 3 distinct components to the Brazilian Butt Lift: liposuction, fat processing and fat re-injection, and each of these components are critical to the success of the whole surgery. You want to understand the technique your surgeon is going to use and hear it in his own words.

4. What is your ideal result for me?

Being on the same page when it comes to results is important between you and your surgeon. You should both address your current body and ideal results, and make sure you both are talking about the same thing. Too many patients do not explain themselves thoroughly, or let the surgeon take the wheel. Ask your surgeon directly what their ideal result is, and what that will look like on your body.

5. How likely is it that I will need a post-op touch up and how much would it cost?

This question is a great test for your surgeon. If they say you might need a touch-up, you will very likely need one. If they are vague or non-specific about cost, redos, and other post-op situations, then you should probably head for the door. Sometimes, touch-ups and redos are necessary because of how your body re-absorbs fat. However, this is still unusual, and is an issue your surgeon should be happy and willing to discuss openly. There should be a specific and clear policy for touch-ups, billing, and overall cost, and you should be well aware of it long before you go into surgery.

6. How long will this surgery take?

You should be aware of how long surgery is going to take, adn your experienced surgeon should be able to give you a very good estimate. Typically, a Brazilian Butt Lift will take between 5 and 8 hours, depending on how much liposuction is performed and how much fat is being reinjected. If your doctor predicts a much shorter surgery, they are likely taking shortcuts that you want to avoid. Anything less than 4 hours signifies major shortcuts being taken.
