Butt Lift - Milwaukee

Butt enhancement (especially the Brazilian Butt Lift) is one of the fastest-growing procedures in all of cosmetic surgery nation wide and the greater Milwaukee area. Patients who want an increase in size, shape, appearance, and proportion to their butt will typically request this procedure. Enhancement of the buttock area can be performed with utilizing your own fat cells to add volume, size, and shape to your butt. This is called gluteal sculpting and is also known as a Brazilian butt lift. Sculpting of the buttocks with fat transfer involves using liposuction to harvest fat cells from other parts of your body, typically your abdomen, love handles and back, and transfer them to the buttocks. This is performed based on your specific buttock shape, size, projection, and anatomy to give you the results you want. This typically involves only several small incisions. Dr. Alex Colque, cosmetic surgeon, is well-trained in this procedure and even went to visit and personally learn from Dr. Constantino Mendieta in Miami, a pioneer of this procedure to further refine his technique. A buttock implant can also be used to increase buttock size in patients that are very thin and don’t have enough donor fat for transfer.

Reasons for Considering a Butt Implant or Brazilian Butt Lift:

  • Flat Butt.
  • Unflattering Buttock shape.
  • Lack of Butt projection. 
  • Low Butt Volume.
  • Desire to have a more proportionate Butt size for your body type.
  • Decrease in volume of the Butt due to weight loss.
  • Change in Butt volume or shape after pregnancy.

General Procedure

A Brazilian butt lift surgery is performed in a hospital or outpatient surgery center. Small incisions about 1 cm in length are made to harvest fat using liposuction from other parts of your body. These are most commonly the abdomen, trunk, back, and inner thighs. Once the fat is harvested, it is purified and placed back in your body in the area of the buttocks where you need the most lift and volume. This allows the shape of your buttocks to improve as well as adding volume, projection, and proportion to your body. This allows the most freedom in buttock enhancement cosmetic surgery. 

Some patients that do not have enough donor site fat for a Brazilian butt lift may require a buttock implant. This is a solid silicone implant that is different from breast implants in it’s shape and makeup. It is placed in the buttocks through an incision in between the buttock cheeks. Also, some patients may require skin excision to lift the buttocks that can be placed in various spots on the buttocks to keep them the most hidden from view. To determine which technique would be the best for you, please schedule your complimentary cosmetic surgery consultation with Dr. Alex Colque in the Waukesha and Milwaukee Wisconsin areas.


Recovery Process

The recovery process from a butt lift involves following your postoperative instructions that are specific for this procedure. Following the instructions allows the best possible wound healing and the best possible results. This procedure can be done as either outpatient surgery or a patient may elect to spend the night in the hospital. Dr. Colque will discuss these options with you during your consultation.
