Before Your Brazilian Butt Lift


No matter how much research you’ve done on your own, you may still feel uncertain about exactly what to expect before your Brazilian butt lift. It’s a great idea to learn as much as possible about preparing for your procedure so you can move forward with confidence.

You can request a consultation to meet with Dr. Joseph J. Castellano and learn more about what to expect before your Brazilian butt lift, including during your consultation and just before your surgery. A Tampa Bay native, Dr. Castellano is well-known as one of the best cosmetic surgeons in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area.

What to Expect at Your Consultation

Your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Castellano is one of the most exciting and important parts of your overall experience. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss a number of aspects related to your buttock enhancement in detail with Dr. Castellano, including your ideal outcome.

There are several topics that Dr. Castellano will cover during your consultation:


  • Your Candidacy

    While many women and men alike can enjoy the results of a Brazilian butt lift, not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure.


  • Your Goals

    Dr. Castellano will talk with you about what your ideal figure may require, including the best area to use as a donor site and the extent of your buttock enhancement.


  • Your Preferences

    Dr. Castellano will explain all of your options for buttock enhancement , including the parts of your body that can be used to harvest fat cells. He will also describe the potential results from the procedure, including the amount of projection that can be added to the buttocks as well as the overall shape.


  • Additional Procedures

    While a Brazilian butt lift can be just the right enhancement for some people, not everyone will have their appearance goals met by a single treatment. Dr. Castellano may recommend additional procedures like liposuction or breast enhancement to further fine-tune your figure, especially in the case of a mommy makeover.


  • Brazilian Butt Lift Costs

    Dr. Castellano’s staff will give you a detailed breakdown of the costs of your buttock enhancement procedure, including the surgical fee, the use of the surgical facility and anesthesia-related charges. You will also receive information on cosmetic surgery financing options to make your Brazilian butt lift as affordable as possible.


  • Your Timeline

    Your consultation is commitment-free and you are encouraged to wait as long as you need before making your final decision. However, many people choose to schedule their Brazilian butt lift with Dr. Castellano’s help during their consultation. Dr. Castellano’s staff will explain the surgical timeline in more detail, including any pre- or post-operative appointments, so you can choose a date that works best with your needs.

Everyone has different questions, goals and concerns, so your exact consultation experience may vary. However, you can expect to leave your consultation feeling much more confident to make the decision about whether a Brazilian butt lift is right for you, what to expect from the procedure and your potential results.

What to Expect before Surgery

Before your surgery, Dr. Castellano may request additional lab tests or medical evaluations, such as clearance from your general physician, depending on your age and background. He may ask you to adjust any prescriptions you currently take as well as any vitamins or over-the-counter medications. Dr. Castellano asks all people he performs surgery for to quit smoking several weeks before their surgery date and refrain from smoking during the recovery period. This will help your body to heal optimally, allowing for the best and quickest results.

It’s important that you have a friend or family member who can accompany you to your surgical appointment and drive you home after. It’s recommended that you arrange a recovery area in your home to allow your body to relax as you heal. It’s also a good idea to have someone around during the first few days of your recovery process who can help out around the house and perform any chores for you.

Once your personal preparations are in order and Dr. Castellano has all the medical information he needs, you’re ready for your Brazilian butt lift. Planning the details of your procedure, including before and after your Brazilian butt lift, will help ensure that you have the best experience from start to finish.
