What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

It is a procedure that is performed by a plastic surgeon to reshape and enlarge the buttocks resulting in a more flattering look in proportion with the rest of the body. There are two different types of butt lifts. The first involves implants and the second, the Brazilian butt lift involves the transfer of fat from other areas of your body to your buttocks. Fat is removed from one area of the patient’s body using liposuction and then it is transplanted into the patient’s buttocks area.


Ideal Candidates

Many doctors recommend that candidates be at least 10 to 20 pounds over their ideal weight and also in good health. The reason for the weight requirement is due to the procedure involving removal of fat from a variety of trouble areas located throughout the body.

How it Works: Preparation and Procedure

In order to have a safe healing process, patients will want to prepare by following the directions of their plastic surgeon. Important instructions include preparing your home for a comfortable recovery environment, arrange schedules to take time off of work and pick the children up from school, also schedule your own transportation for after the surgery procedure, stop smoking at least one month prior to the surgery day and avoid specific medications listed by your doctor. The Brazilian butt lift procedure is an outpatient procedure and usually takes about one and a half hours to four hours to complete. The time frame is determined by the amount of work that needs to be done to achieve the desired look. The procedure begins with the removal of fat from a variety of places on your body by using liposuction. This means in addition to getting a butt lift, you are also receiving liposuction in troubled areas. This helps the final results look proportionate with the rest of your body. Once the fat cells are collected they are purified and ready for injection into the buttocks.

Types of Brazilian Butt Lift Procedures

There are two types of butt lift surgeries: buttock implants and fat grafting. Both types are performed under intravenous (IV) or general anesthesia. For implant surgery, an incision is made along the top of the top of the butt cheeks, where your rear meets your thighs, or between your butt cheeks. For fat grafting, liposuction is used to remove excess fat deposits from one area of your body, such as your abdomen or thighs. Small cannula us used to inject the fat spreading it evenly throughout your bottom for a well proportionate, rounded shape of your buttocks.

Benefits and Advantages

Most patients who have a Brazilian butt lift find that they have a new found self-confidence, improved self-esteem and an increased level of feeling sexy and proud of their body. Advantages of the Brazilian butt lift include the improved look to the troubled areas such as the stomach and thighs due to the liposuction and contouring required for the butt lift procedure. This procedure also provides a more natural feel and look when compared to gluteal implants.

Disadvantages and Risks

While the Brazilian butt lift is well known for its good reputation, all plastic surgeons will agree that any surgery has risks. Possible risks from receiving the Brazilian butt lift include infection, asymmetry, excessive blood loss, discomfort, hematoma and the possibility that some of the fat that the doctor uses to transfer into the buttocks may be reabsorbed into the body.


The recovery process requires patients to wear a body garment for up to four weeks. It is recommended to take at least one week off from work to allow your body to recover. You may experience swelling and bruising as well as feel tender and sore for several weeks, especially in the areas where the fat was removed by liposuction.
