     -Before & After

Getting Ready for a Brazilian Butt Lift

Dr. Michael Omidi will instruct you to stop smoking and avoid medications that contribute to increased bleeding.

On the morning of surgery, take a prescribed nausea medication with a small sip of water and avoid wearing makeup or perfume.

The Procedure

To better serve your individualized needs, Dr. Michael Omidi offers two types of buttock augmentation surgery. The procedure lasts between 2 to 4 hours depending on the technique.

      -Butt Implants

This technique involves inserting solid or semi-solid implants under the upper buttock muscles to enhance the contours of the buttock region.

  • Experienced anesthesiologist or CRNA will use general anesthesia for your safety.
  • Dr. Omidi will make a two to three inch incision in the crease between the buttocks.
  • Insert solid or semi solid implants into buttocks between the muscle and the fascia (the connective tissue that surrounds the muscle).
  • The space made for the implant is the exact same size as the implant itself, which minimizes the risk that the implants will shift.
  • Dr. Omidi will close the incision with sutures in a way that minimizes the visibility of scarring.

      -Fat Transfer

This technique involves taking fat from a different region of the body and micro-grafting it into the buttocks area. The usual donor sites include the abdominal area, the upper thigh area, the arms, or the back. A patient must have enough fat in other parts of the body for this procedure to be effective.

  1. Experienced anesthesiologist or CRNA will use general anesthesia for your safety.
  2. Dr. Omidi will extract fat from the host area using liposuction.
  3. Fat istransfer into the backside though a small incision.
  4. Dr. Omidi makes sure that fat cells are evenly distributed
  5. He will close the incisions in a way that minimizes scarring.
