Brazillian Butt Lift Q & A

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

The Brazilian butt lift is buttocks augmentation through fat grafting. A Brazilian plastic surgeon invented this minimally-invasive procedure which removes fat from one area of the body through liposuction or liposculpting, purifies the fat, then injects it into your buttocks. The result is a firmer, rounder, lifted butt.

One of the advantages of a Brazilian butt lift is that you can potentially reshape two or more areas a time. The area, or areas, from which the fat is harvested, like the abdomen or thighs, can be sculpted so they’re slimmer and firmer, while extra fat in your buttocks gets you the desired shape you want, too. Depending on your specific procedure, the Brazilian butt lift can often be done under local anesthetic.

What problems does the Brazilian butt lift correct?

Women who have tried to improve the shape of their buttocks with diet and exercise, but can only get so far on their own, may benefit from a Brazilian butt lift to address the following:

  • Sagging buttocks, or extra skin and flab
  • Buttocks that are disproportionate to your overall figure
  • Asymmetrical buttocks (one side is larger than the other)
  • Change in shape following significant weight loss

Who is a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?

As with any cosmetic surgery, you should first be in good overall health before you choose to have an elective surgery. Women who meet the following conditions are optimal candidates for a butt lift:

  • No known adverse reactions to anesthesia
  • Have realistic expectations about the results of the surgery
  • Don’t smoke or drink in excess, since both can interfere with the healing process
  • Have arrived at your ideal weight and have been stable maintaining it
  • Want to enhance your buttocks to appear more proportionate for your body type

What is the recovery time after a Brazilian butt lift?

Following the Brazilian butt lift procedure, you will experience some swelling and bruising in both the area used to harvest the fat, and in your buttocks where the fat has been injected and sculpted. Even though this is a minimally-invasive procedure, Dr. Colon advises that you plan for the following during your recovery:

  • You’ll wear a special compression garment on both areas where the liposuction and liposculpting were performed
  • You won’t be able to sit directly on your bottom for several weeks after surgery; use of a donut pillow or cushion can help
  • Avoid sleeping on your back to put pressure on your buttocks
  • Avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time for several weeks
  • Avoid high-impact activities for six to eight weeks after surgery
