Before and after butt lift

Brazilian Butt Lift

A small or flat rear end can affect the proportions of your body and make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.

A Brazilian butt lift uses your own fat tissue to enhance the contour, size, and shape of your rear end for a fuller, curvier figure.

So why do so many patients choose Brazilian butt lifts?

A Safe, Comprehensive, and Less Invasive Butt Lift Option

Safe Surgery with Lifelike Results

Since this type of butt lift uses your own tissue, there is almost no chance of an allergic reaction (unlike procedures using synthetic materials). In addition, fat transfer looks more natural than butt implants.

Tone Other Areas of Your Figure

The fat tissue comes from other areas of your body. Using liposuction, your doctor can target flabby areas, such as the abdomen and thighs, providing an overall more toned appearance.

Less Invasive

During Brazilian butt lift, your doctor will use a tiny needle to add fat to your rear end. The injection points are virtually invisible, making this treatment much less invasive than a surgical butt lift or butt implants. 

A Brazilian Butt Lift Can Help You Love Your Figure

I’ve Heard Horror Stories about This Procedure

When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, Brazilian butt lifts can provide excellent results. However, issues arise when surgeons do not respect the process or lack proper training. In some cases, they may inject the fat too deeply into the muscles. Choosing a skilled surgeon who has experience in liposuction and body contouring can help you avoid complications and ensure you remain safe during and after your butt lift. 

Enhance Your Curves in Four Easy Steps

Your doctor will first administer anesthesia to ensure your comfort during treatment.

Using a thin tube, your doctor will collect fat tissue from your stomach, thighs, or other areas. He or she may gather up to three times of the amount needed to ensure there is plenty of high-quality tissue.

Fat Isolation

Using a centrifuge, your doctor will carefully process the fat tissue to isolate the best cells for transfer.

Fat Injection

Finally, your doctor will use a very thin needle to add the fat back into your buttocks. By placing multiple injections at different depths, the surgeon can create a natural-looking, balanced result.

Patients Generally Notice the Effects Right Away

The results of a Brazilian butt lift are typically visible almost immediately. However, the tissues will continue to settle over the next three to six months. For some patients, it can take up to a year to see the final results of the fat transfer. 

Aging and gravity can affect the results of your butt lift. Maintaining a stable weight and a generally good level of fitness can help maintain the effects of your procedure. Keep in mind that the fat transferred into your buttocks will act like fat anywhere else in your body–it can grow or shrink if your weight fluctuates.

Following Your Doctor's Instructions Can Help Maximize Your Results

Compared to a traditional butt lift, this method of butt augmentation has an easier recovery period. However, it is crucial that you avoid sitting or laying directly on your buttocks for at least two weeks after the procedure because pressure can kill the newly transplanted fat cells.

After a few weeks, your surgeon will clear you to sit again. You will need to use a donut seat or place a pillow under your thighs to minimize the pressure on the buttocks. Generally, patients are able to resume normal sitting after about eight weeks

Most patients can resume light activity within a week and return to work after about 10 to 14 days. Avoid exercising for at least six to eight weeks.

Learn More about Your Options

Brazilian butt lifts add volume and refine the shape of your backside, but they cannot address sagging or excess skin. For those issues, a traditional butt lift may be a better option. If you do not have enough excess fat on your body for a Brazilian butt lift, your doctor may recommend implants or another filler.

Recovery Time Can Vary Depending on the Type of Butt Augmentation You Choose

Butt Implants

After implant placement, you will likely need to wait at least a week to begin doing minor physical tasks and at least two weeks to return to work. It typically takes five to six weeks for bruising and swelling to disappear.

Traditional Butt Lift

Recovering after a traditional butt lift typically takes longer than a Brazilian butt lift. Generally, it takes two to three weeks for patients to return to normal activities and about two to six months for discoloration and inflammation to subside.

Sculptra Aesthetic

Since a butt lift with Sculptra is non-surgical, there is no need for downtime or recovery. However, it can take multiple session to see results with Sculptra and, as with any filler, the effects are temporary.
