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.

"I’m almost at my one year post op and I have to say, I have never felt so confident! Prior to my Breast Augmentation, it was always challenging to find certain outfits. You would never catch me wearing a bathing suit! Being a mother of now a 3 year old, I waited until I didn’t have to carry my daughter due to lifting restrictions post surgery. I have to say that this was THE BEST better late than never post-partum/Coming in to my 30’s --gift to myself! Thank you to the very helpful and friendly staff! and of course, thank you to Dr. Marvin for making me feel comfortable throughout the whole process and making me look like a hot momma lol"- L.L. / Yelp / Mar 02, 2022

"I love this clinic! I have been seen by doctor Grace Kim, and I cannot thank her enough for her kindness and for making me feel welcome at her office. She always makes sure she answers all my questions and concerns and takes the time to explain to me what is going on with my health. I feel I am not just another patient, I feel Ms. Kim cares for me. Her staff is amazing, from her nurses to the ladies at the front desk. This clinic is very clean and the interior design of the lobby/waiting area is fantastic. Thank you, Ms. Kim, I truly appreciate you!"- L.S. / Yelp / Oct 31, 2019
"Dr. Candace Spann is the best doctor, of any specialty, I’ve ever had. She’s been my doctor for almost 20 years. She takes time out of her day to help me, research my disease and try to diagnose on her own time, no other doctor does that. I have 18 doctors because I’m sicker than a skateboard trick video, she’s the best. I would honestly recommend her for any award, ever. You know what? I have no life, I might just do that."- R.S. / Yelp / Feb 25, 2022
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 $7,500-$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.
