The answer to this question is intertwined with the exact collection of procedures the patient undergoes. The lengthiest portion of a Brazilian butt lift, fat grafting, generally takes between two and five hours to complete. If the patient requires additional procedures, like surgical removal of excess skin or additional liposuction, then the overall procedure will take that much longer to complete. At West Empire Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles, patients can be sure that their surgeon will thoroughly explain both the nature of their procedures as well as the anticipated timeframe well before the day of their surgery.
