For the patient seeking to add projection to the buttocks, Liposuction with fat transfer to the buttocks is an option. The patient’s own fat is taken during a Liposuction procedure, usually from around the waist and thighs. The fat is then processed and injected into the buttocks to ensure a natural curve and projection. This procedure is referred to as a “Brazilian Butt Lift”.
During your free consultation, our board certified plastic surgeons will discuss with you the best technique(s) to achieve your desired results. All of your questions about the procedure and the required recovery time will be answered, and any concerns you have about the procedure can be addressed.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Implants have a hard time in the buttocks. They are prone to shifting and have a high rate of complications. That doesn’t mean you’re out of luck when it comes to increasing the size and projection of your butt; fat injection is a very effective technique for gluteal augmentation.
A Brazilian butt lift uses fat from other parts of the body (harvested using liposuction) to enhance the buttocks. The results can be stunning (check out our gallery of real patient results) and are permanent. Since liposuction is used to remove fat for the procedure, a Brazilian butt lift packs in a 2 in 1 punch, creating a larger, enhanced buttocks while shaping and contouring other areas of the body.
The procedure can augment many different shapes and sizes of buttocks. It is especially popular in those looking to correct a flat buttocks, sagging buttocks, or after weight loss to reshape and reform the buttocks.
A Brazilian butt lift is performed at our accredited surgery center. It usually takes around 3 hours (shorter or longer depending on the specifics of your situation). We start with liposuction, usually performed in areas around the buttocks (like the waist, stomach, back, or thighs) since this helps the results of your procedure to stand out more. The suctioned fat is then specially processed and cleaned. This ensures that the best donor cells are used.
The prepared fat is then injected into the buttocks using a series of injections. Don’t worry about needles; you’ll be comfortable throughout the procedure and under sedation.
After treatment you’ll head home for recovery. Plan on taking it easy for a few days. Most patients take around three days off from work.
