A deflated, flat rear-end can be caused by a number of factors, including weight loss, aging and gravity. Individuals seeking a rounder, shapelier buttock may consider a butt enhancement procedure such as a fat transfer to achieve these results. This is known as a “Brazilian Butt Lift." Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Marvin Spann, uses the most advanced liposuction and fat transfer methods available today to create gorgeous results. Patients with loose skin may not be suitable candidates for this procedure, instead, surgical Butt Lift may be necessary. In addition, patients who have low body fat but still desire a shapelier butt, may want to consider butt implants. All of these options can be discussed during your initial consultation with Dr. Marvin Spann.

"Cancer, nobody wants to hear about it, even when they tell you it is 100% treatable. I needed to get surgery to remove the affected area, Dr. Grace Kim personally called me to schedule the appointment and to make sure that I understood the procedure. This was more than I expected, much more, she was so kind, really taking her time to make sure that I was comfortable. I arrived for my appointment expecting to spend the entire morning waiting and not getting out for four hours, based on my previous experience with MOH's surgery for skin cancer. Much to my surprise I got this one early, thanks to regular skin inspections, and was done well before lunch. The staff and the Dr.'s at Couture made this and every other visit so pleasant and quick. I have been kept informed about all options and findings. I have been greeted with a smile and treated with kindness and professionalism. Dr. Kim and Dr. Candace Spann were compassionate and concise, not wasting my time or theirs, but answering all my questions and concerns. I really can't thank them all enough for taking care of me."- M.H. / Yelp / Oct 25, 2018
During the initial consultation, the body will be assessed so that it can be determined where to perform liposuction in order to extract the necessary amount of fat needed to perform the transfer. Multiple donor sites may be considered. The fat will be removed and grafted for a healthy, effective transfer. It will then be injected through a syringe into the buttocks. This process will take place over several steps, and many layers may be used until the desired result is achieved. The incisions from a Brazilian Butt Lift are very small and thus scarring after the procedure is minimal.
A Brazilian Butt Lift is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete depending on how many donor sites are used and how many layers it takes to achieve the desired fullness. Following surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas as well as on the buttocks. Patients will find it difficult to sit, but are encouraged to do so once the swelling has subsided. It will take about 3 full months for the body to recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.
The cost for a Brazilian Butt Lift will vary depending on how many donor sites are used for liposuction to retrieve the necessary amount of fat. On average, this surgery will cost between $6,000-$9,000.

Fat Transfer or Implants?
Both techniques are commonly used by cosmetic surgeons and can achieve good results. Some patients simply do not want a foreign device in their body and feel that the fat transfer method is safe and natural. A disadvantage of fat transfers, however, is that they may not last as long as an implant. Some of the injected fat will absorb naturally into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique during the consultation so the right decision can be made.
Weight gain could compromise the results of the surgery. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
