Embrace and Enhance Your Curves
No matter how many squats you do at the gym, you may not achieve the round, voluptuous buttock you desire. A Brazilian butt lift procedure in Fort Wayne addresses inadequate, flat, asymmetrical, or sagging buttocks by harvesting unwanted fat with liposuction, purifying the fat cells, and injecting it into your backside.
With its natural approach, the Brazilian butt lift has become an excellent alternative to butt implant surgery. The best benefit of Brazilian butt lift is that these results are long-lasting, although diet and exercise are generally necessary to maintain your curvaceous results.
Before Your Procedure
Knowing what to do and what to expect before your surgery will provide the best possible outcome of your procedure. If you smoke, you will be asked to stop smoking well before surgery since it increases the risk of complications and affects the fat grafting process.
You may need to undergo lab testing or a medical evaluation to prepare for surgery. You cannot take anti-inflammatory medication, including aspirin, before surgery because it can increase bleeding. Dr. Lee will provide all preoperative instructions during your consultation.
A Brazilian butt lift is performed at the fully accredited Southwest Surgical Suites. It is important to ensure someone can drive you home after surgery and stay with you for at least the first night.

During a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Lee extracts unwanted fat by liposuction from pre-determined areas. Common locations may include love handles, stomach, and thighs, which enhances the overall results by slimming down surrounding areas. The fat is then purified by centrifugation. Then, the donor fat cells are reinjected into the buttocks to add volume and shape in specific targeted areas. Dr. Lee may perform this through hundreds of microinjections at various depths.

Understanding the Risks
When performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lee, the Brazilian butt lift is commonly a successful procedure. However, with any surgery, it is not entirely risk-free. Common side effects may include:
- Pain, bruising, swelling
- Irregular contour
- Asymmetrical results
- Too much loss of fat
If you experience shortness of breath, chest pains, or an unusual heartbeat, seek medical attention immediately. Dr. Lee will discuss all risks during your consultation. To ensure clarification, please ask him any questions or concerns you may have.
Results of Your Procedure
Patients should expect roughly 60 to 80 percent of their injected fat to stay in the area. The rest is naturally absorbed and eliminated by the body. It is also important to remember that these fat cells are still susceptible to weight fluctuations. To have the longest-lasting results, you should maintain a healthy weight after the procedure rather than lose or gain it.
Your new voluptuous shape will continue to improve over the course of several months, with final results shown around 6 to 12 months after the procedure. You’ll most likely experience enhanced self-esteem and a healthier lifestyle to maintain these results.
The key to a very successful Brazilian butt lift is an open line of communication with Dr. Lee and closely following his instructions and recommendations. He and his team are eager to respond to your questions or concerns – they are your partners in achieving the results you’ve been looking for.

Real Patient Results
Request a Consultation
If you would like to learn more about a Brazilian butt lift, your first step would be to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lee. The meeting takes place at Aspire’s Fort Wayne office during a time that fits your schedule. Dr. Lee will take the time to get to know you and learn why you desire this procedure. He will also examine your buttocks and potential harvest areas to determine the best course of action unique to you.
Dr. Lee will also require your complete medical history. For your consultation, be prepared to talk about medical conditions, previous surgeries, current medications, and allergies, and whether you had any prior buttock augmentations or liposuction, which may affect your results.
I can speak about someone whom I was in a romantic relationship with who went to see Dr. Lee for a consultation and then to have two fairly significant procedures done. From the very first meeting, all the way through her recovery from both procedures, Dr. Lee and his staff were nothing but the best they could be. I was just amazed how upbeat and positive Dr. Lee and his staff made her feel every step of the way. Dr. Lee is not just a gifted, board-certified plastic surgeon with 22 years of experience who has an amazing staff of caring people. He CHANGES PEOPLE’S LIVES!! He is gifted, he is talented, he is polite, friendly, articulate and, most of all, humble. He does not brag or boast or have an ego. He has a gift and love for what he does, and it shows in how he does it with every single patient every single day. The Fort Wayne medical community is blessed and fortunate to have Dr. Lee as one of its members, and we are fortunate to have him as a member of our community.

I really appreciated the concern and personal touch of receiving a post-op phone call by both the nurse and Dr. Lee. It is comforting to know that Dr. Lee is a very talented artist whose skills tie in with his work. I absolutely love and enjoy seeing Dr. Lee’s photography displayed on the walls and in the books in his office.
