Brazilian Buttock Lift
Scottsdale AZ & Gilbert AZ

A Brazilian butt lift is done through a fat transfer to the buttocks, unlike a traditional buttock lift that surgically removes fat tissue from the butt and reshapes it.

About the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

Sometimes called Brazilian butt lift surgery, this procedure gives shape and contour to the buttocks by adding fat tissue removed from areas that have excess fat.

Fat is removed through liposuction, a procedure that’s been around for several years, and is very safe when performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon. As a bonus, fat removal from these areas improve overall body appearance.

After the fat has been properly sterilized and processed, it’s injected into precise areas of each buttock. Successful Brazilian butt lift results show high, round buttocks.

How to Prepare for a Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure?

Patients are normally advised to avoid painkillers, including over the counter medications, for up to two weeks before liposuction. Those who take blood thinners should speak with their prescribing physician.

If you decide to have sedation anesthesia instead of local, you will be told not to eat or drink after midnight the prior night.

What to Expect From a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A qualified Brazilian butt lift surgeon emphasizes self-care after the procedure, including two to three weeks of recovery at home. Patients must avoid sitting down and lying on their back for up to six weeks while the area heals. Most will see results after six to eight weeks when they can also resume all activities.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs

Candidates for the Brazilian butt lift aren’t typically overweight or out of shape. Most are in pretty good shape and have the procedure to emphasize their buttocks for fashion reasons; that’s why it’s popular among models and performers.
No! Patients need to keep pressure off the buttocks so that the fat grafts aren’t disturbed during healing, and to promote blood flows, which nourishes the new fat and helps heal the injection sites.
Most patients are cleared to go to work after two or three weeks. They should use standing desks.
A special “BBL” pillow that takes pressure off the healing buttocks can be used if sitting or back sleeping can’t be avoided.
Many Brazilian butt lift surgeons recommend pressure garments around the treated area to speed up healing and reduce discomfort and swelling.
Patients can gradually begin light exercise after two or three weeks. Most are back to normal activities after six weeks.
The technical term for the Brazilian butt lift is gluteoplasty.
Autologous fat (from the same body) that’s properly prepared is very safe and carries no risks, unlike silicone, which is now banned to use for augmentation purposes.
Patients typically retain 60% to 80% of the fat transferred into their buttocks, keeping the shape for years!
