The Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure which uses patient’s own body fat to add volume to the buttocks. The procedure results in a youthful, perky and rounder rear end and a more contoured body profile. This type of butt lift is not to be confused with a butt lift surgery which is designed to create a fuller, curvier buttocks and hips using buttock implants.
Buttock implants made of silicone were originally used for buttock augmentation until a few years ago.
The Brazlilian Butt Lift procedure has much greater benefits compared than buttock implants, including:
- A more natural appearance – The Brazilian butt lift uses the patient’s own fatty deposits to reshape the buttocks, resulting in a more natural appearance.
- Less painful recovery – The Brazilian butt lift is less painful than butt implant surgery and is the smart choice for patients worried about painful and long recoveries.
- Minimal scarring – The Brazilian butt lift produce minimal scars; women are able to wear bikinis without showing an evidence of this cosmetic procedure.
- No implant-related complications – Complications from silicone implants include infection, displacement, visibility of the implant, leakage, ruptures and hardening of the implant. These complications are avoided with the Brazilian butt lift. Once fully healed, there are no future complications you need to worry about.
Rounder, larger buttocks – The Brazilian butt lift allows doctors to create larger, fuller buttocks than with silicone implants, while helping to slim down the areas where there was an excess of fat.
All patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with Brazilian butt lift surgery.
The key to being a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift is to have an adequate amount of fat in other areas of your body. Liposuction will remove excess fat from areas that may include the abdomen, love handles, thighs, hips, back or arms. This fat will be purified and reinjected into the buttocks. Without available fat, the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure cannot be performed.
We do not treat patients below the age of 18 years of age.
Healing is better if patients refrain from or quit smoking.
The Brazilian butt lift procedure is performed purely for cosmetic purposes, to help improve one’s image and self-esteem.
The Brazilian butt lift consultation
The consultation begins by having an opportunity to discuss your ideas, concerns and expectations about the Brazilian butt lift procedure with your surgeon, and ask any relevant questions you may have.
Your surgeon will:
- Take a focused history and examine you
- Explain the chin implants procedure
- Take your needs and preferences into account when deciding on the most appropriate treatment option for you
A Brazilian Butt lift surgeon is from a plastic surgery background. Plastic surgeons are fully trained to perform Brazilian butt lift surgery.
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure takes about 3.5 hours and is performed using twilight anaesthesia.
The Brazilian butt lift is based on fat grafting (fat transfer), which involves removing a patient’s own fat from one part of the body and injecting it where it’s needed – in this case, the buttocks. The Brazilian butt lift is actually a two-stage surgical procedure.
During Phase 1 of the surgery, fat is liposuctioned from areas of the body where it is in excess. This provides the added benefit of removing excess fat from other parts of the body, improving the patient’s overall look. Usually, several tiny incisions are made to access the fatty areas where liposuction will be performed. The fat removed via liposuction is then processed and purified in the operating room, and the second stage of the surgery begins.
This part of the procedure involves multiple injections of the patient’s own fat back into the buttocks, where it is sculpted by the doctor, making the buttocks larger and rounder. Once the appropriate amount of fat is injected, the procedure is complete. After the procedure, patients will experience swelling and bruising, but this will subside after a few weeks.. The discomfort from the surgery will be managed by pain medication prescribed by the surgeon. The results are immediate, but the buttocks will be at their largest right after the procedure and will slightly decrease in size as you heal from the surgery. The final result and size of the new butt will be visible after a full three months of healing.
It is very important to avoid sitting on your buttocks as much as possible in the first few weeks after surgery. In order to take direct pressure off the bottom, you should sleep on your stomach or on your sides. When sitting, try to have your weight placed on your thighs, rather than your buttocks. You should be up and walking the day following your surgery. To help improve the shape of the buttocks and expedite healing and minimise the amount of fluid formation, patients are often encourage to wear a compression garment for up to six weeks after the surgery. The surgeon’s expert colleagues will see you the day after your surgery and at specified intervals during the weeks that follow. This is done so that the staff can personally monitor your recovery process, and to ensure that you have the best results possible.
How should I prepare for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?
You should stop smoking four weeks prior to your procedure
Stop any medications that could cause bleeding
Drink a lot of water in the days leading up to your surgery

What does the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involve?
Twilight anaesthesia will be administered. The Brazilian butt lift procedure has two phases. Liposuction is sued to remove excess fat from areas with good fat deposits. The fat is processed, and then injected into the buttocks using special cannulas. This produces smoother and rounder buttocks than buttock implants. The procedure takes about 3.5 hours.
What is the recovery process for Brazilian Butt lift?
Patients will need to avoid sitting on their buttocks for first two weeks. Normal activities can resume after this. The buttocks will appear largest at about 2-3 months following the Brazilian Butt Lift.
Will I have scars?
One of the major benefits of the Brazilian butt lift procedure is that there are no major incisions. That means minimal scarring. Patients can be assured that they will be able to wear bikinis and other revealing clothing without showing scars.
Does the brazilian butt lift carry the same risks as Macrolane injections.
A Brazilian Butt lift is an entirely natural procedure with no foreign material inserted. Just the patients own fat is used.
It is an extremely safe procedure.
What are the brazilian butt lift complications?
The risks include bleeding, infection, and collection of fluid under the skin, swelling and DVT.
The surgeon takes special precautions to minimise the risk of complications developing after the brazilian butt lift.
