Brazilian Butt Lift Washington DC
A prominent, shapely backside can be a hallmark feature of a feminine profile. Many women have a naturally flat or small bottom, and want to enhance the area for a more rounded, pleasing contour. In fact, plastic surgery to create larger, more prominent, or shapelier buttocks has become more common than ever. If nature didn’t give you the figure you want, a Washington DC Brazilian Butt Lift could be the answer for you.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a buttock augmentation procedure that uses the patient’s own fat to enhance the bottom, rather than placing implants. This procedure has the added advantage of slimming the areas from which the fat is harvested while shaping the waist and buttocks.
The body-sculpting Brazilian Butt Lift procedure can create fuller, firmer backside while slimming down the waist, hips, and thighs. If you would like to know more about what a Brazilian Butt Lift could do for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Christopher C. Chang in Washington, D.C. Dr. Chang is a highly trained, board-certified plastic surgeon who focuses on providing personalized care, and customized treatment plans.
Benefits of Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
This cutting-edge cosmetic procedure has many benefits for patients:
- Less invasive with less downtime than buttocks implants
- Produces natural-looking, long-lasting results
- Slims and shapes the body while enhancing the buttocks
- Uses fat from the patient’s own body, reducing rejection and foreign body reaction
- Minimizes scarring and risk of complications
If you are unhappy with appearance of your bottom, the Brazilian Butt Lift Washington DC may be the ideal solution. This combination body-sculpting technique can recontour your body with beautiful, natural-looking, long-lasting results. The Brazilian Butt Lift couples perfectly with a Breast Augmentation to achieve that hourglass figure. When you come in for a consultation with Dr. Christopher C. Chang, he will discuss your treatment goals, carefully evaluate your anatomy, and help you determine whether the Brazilian Butt Lift is the right procedure to give you the fuller, rounder rear-end you envision.
How is brazilian butt lift performed?
The Washington DC Brazilian Butt Lift combines two surgical techniques – liposuction and fat grafting – into one procedure to sculpt the hips, buttocks, and lower abdomen and create a fuller, more voluptuous silhouette. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia.
Dr. Chang will first gently and selectively remove fat cells from areas other than the buttocks, reducing stubborn fat deposits in the waist, abdomen, hips, or thighs. When enough fat has been harvested for the procedure, the fat is purified, and the best healthy fat cells are then used for augmentation. Dr. Chang will carefully inject the fat into the buttocks, creating a rounder, fuller rear.
Am I a Good Candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift?
If you feel that your buttocks are too flat, not large enough, too small to be in proportion with the rest of your body, and you want to enhance them without implants, the our Washington DC Brazilian Butt Lift may be the right treatment option for you. It is important to note that you must have enough fat in other areas of your body to harvest and then transfer to the buttocks.
What is recovery like from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
While a Brazilian butt lift is minimally invasive, recovery and full results will take time.
Immediately after your surgery, Dr. Chang will place a compression garment to control swelling. You will need to spend the next few days resting but will not be able to sit or lie on your back for at least two weeks. After two weeks, a special pillow can be used. The goal is to have as many of the transferred fat cells as possible to flourish in the new location, and any pressure can affect the outcome.
Though you will see a change immediately, the full results from your Brazilian butt lift may not be visible for about six months. You may require more than one fat transfer procedure to achieve the full, rounded, lifted look you want.
Why should I choose Dr. Chang for my Brazilian butt lift?
Dr. Christopher Chang is a highly sought-after board-certified plastic surgeon providing unparalleled results to Brazilian butt lift patients in the Maryland and DC area. A graduate of Harvard and NYU’s School of Medicine, Dr. Chang also attended Yale and was accepted into a prestigious program at Johns Hopkins University Hospital.

How long does it take for the swelling to disappear?
While everyone varies in how they heal, it is not uncommon to experience swelling for up to six weeks or more, both in the buttocks and in the area of your body from which the fat was harvested.
What are the risks of a Brazilian butt lift?
A Brazilian butt lift carries less risk than many procedures. However, there are still several risks patients should be aware of:
- Lumps or bumps beneath the skin where fat is removed or injected
Any surgical enhancement, whether a BBL or other treatment, must be performed with the most stringent health and safety protocols. Dr. Chang is widely regarded as being among the finest plastic surgeons practicing in the DC and Maryland areas. His private, boutique practice, top-tier credentials, and consistently superior results have led to his reputation for excellence in Brazilian butt lift procedures.
How much does a BBL cost?
The cost of a BBL varies widely. When considering enhancing the size of your buttocks with natural fat transfer, the most crucial consideration is the skill and reputation of your plastic surgeon.
The care with which the fat is harvested, processed, and injected makes a significant difference in how many cells survive the transfer.
Rather than being disappointed by an unfortunate result, it is in your best interests to have the surgery performed with great care, by a surgeon with a reputation for excellence. Rather than shopping for price, shop for the best plastic surgeon you can find – it matters. The cost of a BBL is generally in the range of $8,000 but the cost may vary, based on the individual.
"I have never felt so confident. Dr. Chang completely changed how I saw myself in the mirror. I was terribly self conscious of my nose from my youth and finally decided to go through with the surgery. Not only was it inexpensive compared to the other three doctors I contacted, the before and after pictures of patients were also much better looking than the others! The whole process of surgery and recovery was quick and pretty much painless. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting cosmetic surgery. It really made me a happier person." - Catherine M.
"My son was in a terrible accident with most of the bones in his face and skull broken... I don't know what I would have done without Dr Chang!! My son is fully recovered and back to his old self again. I love Dr Chang, he will be in my prayers for the rest of my life. Thank you!" - Elizabeth A.
"I cannot say enough about my surgery with Dr. Chang! I had full facial Rejuvenation including a facelift brow lift and upper eyelids done 4 months ago. I also had a chemical peel to my lower eyelids and mouth. They was barely any pain and I was back to work the next week! I am so thrilled and my friends are so impressed. I cannot say enough about my experience! He is both caring and an amazing surgeon! Thank you so much!" - Cathy W.
The entire experience and outcome was everything I hoped for and I cannot thank Dr. Chang enough! He is a true pro and I recommend 100% without reservation!" - Ashley R.
"I went to Dr. Chang to correct the damage done to my breasts from pregnancy and breastfeeding. He went above and beyond to make me comfortable and to explain exactly what the procedures (lift + implants) would entail. He was extremely responsive and truly understood the look that I was trying to achieve - full, natural for my frame, and with minimal scarring. I'm only two days out from surgery and I'm already loving my results. I am so glad that I chose Dr. Chang to restore my chest to its pre-baby appearance. I actually think they are going to be better than they ever were before I had kids!" - Emily L.
