What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular cosmetic procedure that enhances the size and shape of the buttocks.
This procedure involves transferring fat from other parts of the body to the buttocks, providing a more natural and aesthetically pleasing result.

Details About the Procedure

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure begins with liposculpturing, a technique where fat is harvested from various parts of the body such as the abdomen, waist, and back. This harvested fat is then processed and injected into the fatty tissue of the buttocks to achieve the desired shape and size. The most desired contour of the butt looks like a “C” or a bowl, top to bottom, side to side. For those who desire a more voluptuous shape, they can also have fat injected into the hips “hip dips” and outer thighs. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and recovery time varies depending on the individual.

Expected Results

The results of a Brazilian Butt Lift are immediately noticeable. However, the final results may take a few months to fully develop as the transferred fat integrates with the existing buttock tissue. The majority of the transferred fat is retained, leading to long-lasting results. It’s important to note that maintaining a stable weight is crucial for maintaining the results of a Brazilian Butt Lift.

Consultation and Recovery Process

During the initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss the patient’s goals and expectations for the procedure. The surgeon will also examine the patient’s body structure and determine the amount of fat needed for the procedure. After the procedure, patients are advised to avoid sitting directly on their buttocks for about two weeks and to wear a compression garment for about four weeks. Most patients can return to work within a week and can resume exercise after about two weeks.
