Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the shape and contour of the buttocks by injecting the tissues with fat cells taken via liposuction from another area of the body. This procedure does not involve the use of implants to improve the appearance of the buttocks, and ultimately provides patients with a double-benefit: reduction of excess fat in a different area of the body followed by rejuvenation and enhancement of the buttocks. Our plastic surgeons at Luxxery Boutique offer the Brazilian butt lift as a “natural” option for buttock augmentation that can create more youthful contours with exceptional, long-lasting results.

Am I a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

You may be an ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift if you are interested in:

  • Enhancing shape, contour, and volume in the buttocks
  • Improving mild signs of sagginess and inelastic skin affecting the buttocks
  • Enhancing overall balance and symmetry of the buttocks
  • Improving buttock appearance for enhancement of overall body proportions

One of our plastic surgeons will meet with you during the initial, complimentary consultation to talk with you about your goals and help you determine whether a Brazilian butt lift is right for your needs. If this treatment is an ideal option, our doctor will also discuss the liposuction component of this procedure and answer any questions you may have. In most cases, liposuction is performed in either the arms, thighs, hips, or abdomen in order to supply the fat that will be transferred to the buttocks; however, it can be performed in other areas, as well. Ultimately, your treatment plan will be customized based on your unique needs and cosmetic enhancement goals.

What Does the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure Involve?

The first step of the Brazilian butt lift procedure is the liposuction component. Once the excess fat cells have been extracted from the “donor” area of your body, they will be carefully filtered and processed for injection into the buttocks. Our doctor will then delicately inject the excess fat cells into the buttocks to enhance shape, volume, and contour. It is important to note that, in many cases, the body will naturally absorb some of the transferred fat, so our surgeon will likely inject more fat cells than what may seem necessary in order to compensate. This should allow for the expected results to be met even after some of the transferred fat cells are reabsorbed by the body.

The Brazilian butt lift is typically performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.

What Can I Expect During Recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift?

There will be some degree of soreness, bruising, and swelling in the area where liposuction was performed as well as the buttocks; however, these effects should fade as the treatment areas continue to heal. You may also be provided surgical compression garments to help speed the healing process along. Sitting directly on the buttocks for long periods of time should be avoided for a few weeks following the Brazilian butt lift procedure—we can talk with you about modified chairs or special cushions that can be helpful until this restriction is no longer necessary. Many patients are able to resume normal daily routines after approximately one week. Strenuous exercises or work, as well as any activity which may induce strain or excessive pressure on the buttocks, should be avoided for at least three to four weeks after surgery.
