Brazilian Butt Lift in Cleveland, OH

If you experience dissatisfaction with your buttocks’ lackluster shape or size and have unwanted pockets of fat elsewhere on your body, then the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) may be right for you. Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Goldschmidt performs the Brazilian Butt Lift to enhance the contour and firmness of your backside and help improve your self-confidence.
Whether you have a naturally small butt or are unpleased with your buttocks after weight fluctuations or the natural aging process, butt augmentation with the Brazilian Butt Lift can help give you the hourglass physique that is sure to turn heads. The Brazilian Buttock Lift enhances the buttocks by using fat taken from other areas of your body, allowing you to target two areas at once to achieve a more youthful and defined derrière.

Who is the right candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift in Cleveland, OH?

Individuals interested in the Brazilian Butt Lift should be in good physical health, have good skin elasticity, and have realistic expectations of their BBL results. Candidates must be willing to stop all tobacco/nicotine use for at least six weeks before and after their BBL procedure. This is to ensure that no smoking-related complications occur during the Brazilian Butt Lift or the recovery period.

Individuals who may qualify for a Brazilian Butt Lift:

  • Desire a fuller, rounder, and more pronounced derrière
  • Have an adequate amount of fat in another part of their body for transfer
  • Maintain a stable weight

How is the Brazilian Butt Lift performed?

The Brazilian Butt Lift relies on fat transfer. During your consultation, you and Dr. Goldschmidt will determine the best area or areas from which to collect your donor fat. This fat is commonly removed from the abdomen, flanks, thighs, back, or upper arms.

The Brazilian Buttock Lift procedure starts with the removal of the donor fat. Dr. Goldschmidt makes small incisions near the donor sites. Hen then removes the excess, unwanted fat via liposuction. Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Goldschmidt transfer the collected fat and purifies it so that only the pure fat cells remain. He then injects the cells into various areas of the buttocks to define, enhance, and lift the butt. As no incisions are made on the buttocks, there is no need for sutures. However, Dr. Goldschmidt will use small sutures to close the incisions made at the donor area. Brazilian Butt Lift surgery is an outpatient procedure.

What is the recovery like after a Brazillian Butt Lift?

Patients usually tolerate the Brazilian Butt Lift well. It is expected that patients will experience some bruising, swelling, and minimal discomfort in both the donor areas and the injection sites. A compression garment will help reduce swelling, enhance comfort, and encourage circulation and healing. Most patients take about five days to recover, and you should avoid sitting directly on your buttocks as much as possible during this time. Patients can resume most, if not all, regular activities after four weeks.

What results can I expect from my BBL in Cleveland, OH?

After a Brazilian Butt Lift, some of the transferred cells will not survive. Therefore, Dr. Goldschmidt injects a more considerable amount of fat than desired.

The full results of your Brazilian Butt Lift will not become apparent until after the swelling subsides and the body absorbs some of the fat. Once this happens, you can enjoy your enhanced and sculpted physique that includes larger and rounder buttocks as well as slimmer hips, thighs, stomach, or abdomen. These results are long lasting as long as you continue with a healthy lifestyle and do not experience any major weight fluctuations.


Fat transfer is considered very safe. Unfortunately, any surgical procedure comes with some potential risk. These risks include:

  • Adverse reactions to the anesthesia
  • Infection
  • Bruising
  • Blood clots
  • Asymmetry
  • Fat embolism

How much does a Brazilian Butt Lift cost in Ohio?

The cost of a Brazillian Butt Lift can vary depending on the practice’s geographic location, the associated facility fees, and various fees associated with the anesthesia, surgeon, and combined procedures. For this reason, you will receive a personalized quote for your operation after your consultation with Dr. Goldschmidt.

Frequently Asked Questions About Brazilian Butt Lift

Can you get a BBL in combination with other procedures?

Yes. The Brazilian Butt Lift is always performed with liposuction (to harvest the necessary fat). It is also possible to combine butt augmentation with a tummy tuck. This combination may increase the cost of your operation, but usually less expensive than having each procedure performed separately.

Will my Brazilian Buttock Lift give me permanent results?

The long-term results of a BBL procedure are dependent on the patient’s lifestyle following the operation. Your results should last years if not decades. This is provided you maintain a stable weight with a healthy and active lifestyle. If these factors are ignored, the results of a BBL surgery can fade or become less apparent over time.

Because a BBL relies on transferred fat, the buttocks show the effects of weight fluctuations (either up or down) first. Should you lose significant weight after your BBL, your buttocks will likely lose more volume than the surrounding areas. The same goes for significant weight gain. This is because the butt has a higher percentage of fat cells.

Can a Brazilian Butt Lift give me an hourglass figure?

While an hourglass figure is considered the ideal body shape, few women can achieve such contours on their own. In combination with breast augmentation surgery or tummy tuck surgery, a Brazillian Butt Lift may help mold your contours to match your desires. However, for some patients, an hourglass figure is simply not achievable. Discuss your goals with Dr. Goldschmidt during your consultation to see what your options are.

What will I need to do during my BBL recovery?

In addition to wearing the provided compression garment and ensuring your incision locations are kept covered and dry, there are a few things you can do to optimize your recovery.

  • Avoid sitting on your buttocks for at least five days.
  • After the five days, use specialized pillows and other soft materials to cushion your buttocks for at least two weeks.
  • Sleep in a position that will not put pressure on your buttocks or liposuction incision sites (such as on your stomach).
