Today I hit my 3-month post-surgery date and I am happier than ever! I feel almost 100% like myself. On occasion, there is still some minor lower back ache and I can still feel my abdomen a little hard from the scar tissue but I am thoroughly prepared to expect minor irregularities until 6 months – 1 full year. I look great and the compliments just keep coming. I started working out after 2 weeks, and by 1 month I had very little to no restrictions. I just can’t rave enough about Dr. Truong and his wonderful staff.

I did a LOT of research to find the perfect surgeon who could deliver natural, yet superior results. I wanted a BBL that didn’t look like I had an obvious surgery done, but that would improve my figure and give me that beautiful hourglass shape along with lifting and filling out my sagging behind. I knew from my first consultation with Dr.Truong & by the looks of his portfolio, that he would be the one to do my surgery! I brought along photos of what I personally wanted to achieve and he told me exactly what he would need to do to achieve those results. I gladly traveled from out of state to have my BBL surgery by Dr. Truong and it was the best decision I’ve ever made!! Everyone at his office and the morning of my surgery were so nice and accommodating. I can not recommend him enough and I think my before and after photos speak volumes! He clearly is highly skilled in lipo sculpting and fat transfer! If you have been thinking about this procedure and are on the fence, you just need to do it! You will be in great hands with Dr. Truong & his staff. Your confidence will undoubtably be boosted after this procedure; Mine sure was, and I’m absolutely thrilled with my results!

My entire life, since I was a child, I’ve carried my fat in my mid section. Picture tire around the waist / love handles. I’m 5’2, 115lbs, with scrawny arms/legs and a flat butt. So finally, I’ve made the decision to do the BBL procedure I’ve booked my surgery with Dr. Truong in Chicago for June 13th. I’m not going to lie, while I am super comfortable with him and his skills, I am VERY nervous about not being able to sit for 6+ weeks and the incisions. How come no one talks about the incisions on RS? I’m very curious to see how they heal. The recovery also has me quite nervous as well. Does anyone have any tips that worked well for them?
I’ve made the decision to do this surgery privately – meaning I am not telling my roommate, friends or family about it. I’m sure they will notice a change in my body gradually, but I’m really hoping it’s not noticeable that I’ve had surgery since I don’t have a lot of fat to lose or to transfer to my buttocks.
I will post before/after pics the day following my surgery! In the mean time, here are my “Wish Pics”!
What is the ButtSculpt™ Brazilian Butt Lift?
ButtSculpt™ is a specialized procedure designed to enhance your buttocks and waist. The procedure involves removing fat from other areas of your body, and the purified fat is strategically injected back into the buttocks so the natural curvature is enhanced.
This procedure is also commonly referred to as “Lipo 360 & BBL” or “Lipo 360 and Brazilian Butt Lift” which is actually a misleading name since the actual procedure involves transferring purified fat from one area of your body to another. An actual “lift” requires extensive incisions and tissue shifting. ButtSculpt is a minimally invasive procedure utilizing tiny incisions allowing for a much nicer cosmetic result and reduced downtime.
How is ButtSculpt™ different from an average Brazilian Butt Lift?
Our surgeons specialize unlike anything on the market today, because we use a PROPRIETARY combination of workouts, nutrition, lasers, and fat transplants to give you the ultimate results for your body!
BUTTSCULPT™ BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT FAQ
Where does the fat come from for an autologous fat transfer to the buttocks?
*One of the great things about ButtSculpt is that the fat that is used to enhance your butt is taken from the areas of your body which have excessive amounts of fat such as your back, sides, and lower abdominal wall. Fat can even be taken from your arms and thighs. A ButtSculpt not only makes your butt look amazing but it is an overall body shaping procedure!
How is fat removed and transferred to the buttocks?
The technique that is used to remove the fat is a fat-suctioning method called liposuction. ButtSculpt liposuction requires very small incisions which will be practically invisible over time. Depending upon your body’s shape combined with your expectations will determine if one or both of these procedures are required.
How much fat can be transferred into my butt?
Depending on your body type and the quality of the harvested fat, will determine how much fat can be injected into the area. For safety reasons, there is a total recommended limit that can be harvested then injected. XSculpt prides itself on giving you the cosmetic results you want while still staying well within the safety limits. Our primary goal is to perform safe procedures while providing a cosmetic result that will make you happy!
How is the fat transferred to the buttocks?
Once the fat is removed from your areas that have excessive fat, it is purified then injected through tiny incisions into the areas of your butt to make them fuller, rounder, and sexier! The areas of the sides and above the gluteal muscles is where the majority of the fat is transferred to.
Will the fat transfer to buttocks stay in place?
*Since the fat is being transferred to your buttocks is from your own body, the fat transfer will stay where it is grafted. The fat cells will act as if they have been in the new transferred area from the very start. Once the healing from your fat transfer is complete and the fat cells are thriving in their new home, they will act just like the fat cells in the rest of your body, growing and shrinking as needed.
How long is the ButtSculpt procedure?
*The length of the butt lift procedure is determined by how many areas of fat that need to be harvested and transferred to your buttocks to obtain the look that you want to achieve. In general, the procedure can be as short as two hours and sometimes as long as five hours or greater.
How long is recovery after a ButtSculpt procedure?
*The recovery for a butt lift procedure lasts about two weeks. Immediately following the procedure you will be in a recovery room from approximately 1 to 2 hours before going home. Over the next 24 hours you may experience a small amount of drainage from your incisions which will go away in a short amount of time. 48 hours following the procedure is when you can take your first shower. We recommend that you take at least one week off from your responsibilities so that you can heal appropriately. You will need to wear a special compression garment that will provide the appropriate amount of pressure to the surgical area for about 2 weeks.
Is it true that you can't sit on your butt for the entire recovery time following procedures like ButtSculpt?
*Fortunately this is not true. We do recommend that you avoid prolonged amount of time sitting for the first two weeks while you are recovering. The majority of the fat is transferred to the sides and upper parts of your butt so that pressure to the bottom and middle parts isn’t an issue. However to maximize your cosmetic results from your ButtSculpt we do recommend you either sit on a soft pillow, donut type cushion, or periodic weight shifting while you are sitting for the first two weeks.
Are there any non-surgical procedures to enhance my butt?
Yes, there are a few “non-surgical” options for buttock enhancement, but the results are often questionable. While there are many devices and lasers being marketed as non-surgical procedures for butt lifts, none of these devices have been proven to provide any significant or long-lasting improvement. Another non-surgical method being advertised and performed by other places are use of filler injections. This option doesn’t require liposuction to harvest fat, but the down-side is injection of even approved fillers can cause lumps and scar tissue, and the amount of fillers needed to get noticeable improvement can be very expensive, often double the cost of a fat transfer. Our surgeons at XSculpt do not perform non-surgical butt lifts or use butt injection fillers.
What about butt injections?
Be very careful about undergoing procedures called “butt injections” or “butt fillers”. There are a lot of unlicensed doctors and even non-doctors performing illegal butt injections using non-approved substances like liquid silicone, glue, rubber cement, caulking, and oils. These substances are very dangerous and can cause severe scarring, infections, and even death! Any cosmetic procedures of course should only be performed by licensed, board-certified surgeons qualified and trained to perform them.
