The Chicago Butt Lift is a technique invented by Dr. Tinsley. The popularity of the butt lift was first driven by surgeons in South America, initially Venezuela and then Brazil. The procedure became popular as a simple minimally invasive way to improve the butt’s appearance without problematic implants or dangerous injections. The procedure spread across America and exploded with the apple bottom craze. Suddenly entertainers were being assessed not only by their talent but by their butts. The cultural definitions of what was ideal changed, and women wanted enhancements that met popular ideals rather than their own ethnic standards. The cute little beach booty was no longer adequate for mainstream. The bikini butt looked great on the beach in a swimsuit but was lost in a pair of jeans or business attire. The butts from Brazil simply were not impressive in dresses, skirts or athletic wear. They also could not compete with the famous behinds of pop stars like Jennifer, Beyoncé or Nicki. The Chicago Butt Lift was born to meet these ideals in elegant fashion. Any woman can now achieve a custom designed Grade 3 buttocks.
Grade 1 Bootyosis has neither width nor projection.
Grade 2 Bootyosis has one but not the other. If they have width they lack projection, if they have projection they lack width
Grade 3 Bootyosis is considered ideal in both dimensions.
Grade 4 Bootyosis is considered excessive
A butt lift is actually a fat transfer. The procedure begins with liposuction. Fat is typically removed from the abdomen, flanks and back. It can also be removed from the inner and outer thighs. In the past this fat was simply discarded. Today however, liposuction patients have the option of donating their fat to the buttocks region. The procedure begins with a cosmetic consult to first determine if the procedure and anesthesia are safe for that particular person. The ideal candidate is healthy with a Body Mass Index (BMI) less than 31. The patient discusses their desires in detail prior to the procedure. The patient, not the surgeon, decides the goals. Fat is harvested from the body and transferred directly into the butt through a small hidden incision. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis with anesthesia and the patient goes home the same day. The anesthesia is local with IV sedation. Patients are not “put to sleep” they simply “fall asleep”. The patient doesn’t feel, hear, see or remember anything. Antibiotics and pain medications are given during and after the procedure. Typically surgery is done on Friday, follow up on Monday and go back to work on Tuesday.
Before and After for Butt Lift
Special compression garments must be worn for several weeks to cover all areas that received liposuction. These garments are also designed to contour the buttocks region during the recovery period.
The Cost for A Butt Lift
A butt lift cannot be performed without liposuction. The liposuction fees are based on the number segments treated. For example the entire abdomen is one segment, both flanks (sides) are one segment, the entire back is one segment, the arms are one segment, both inner thighs are one segment. Combining the abdomen, flanks and back would be 3 segments. Don’t forget to ask about “membership” which will save on these procedures.
