Brazilian Butt Lift

Are you unhappy with the size of your buttocks? Want to add more curves to your figure? You don’t even need to worry about implants – you can have a fat transfer to the buttocks, otherwise known as a Brazilian Butt Lift.

The Brazilian Butt Lift involves removing fat from a donor area of your body, such as the hips, waist, thighs or stomach. This fat is then transferring it to the buttocks. This will not only leave you with a perkier, larger buttock, but you will also have lost weight from the donor area.

Centre for Surgery also offers a buttock lift, which involves the removal of excess skin from the buttocks.


Anaesthesia type: ClearSleep

Procedure time: 5-6 hours

Recovery time: 1 week

What are the differences between buttock implants and a Brazilian butt lift?
  • The Brazilian butt lift will appear more natural than implants
  • Surgeons will be able to create a larger, rounder buttocks than they can with implants
  • A Brazilian butt lift is using your own fatty deposits, so you are not inserting a foreign implant into your body
  • You will have a quicker and less painful recovery period than with implants
  • You will have less scarring – there will be no obvious signs of the procedure when you are wearing shorter clothes
  • Implants may result in post-op complications, which you are able to avoid with a Brazilian butt lift
Note that Centre for Surgery does not currently offer buttock implants.
We do, however, offer a buttock lift, which removes excess fat from the buttocks.

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 procedure is performed using ClearSleep anaesthetic and will take about 5 to 6 hours to complete. This means you will be asleep throughout the procedure. However, ClearSleep means you will not be relying on any breathing tubes or machines throughout the procedure. It also gives you a better sense of wellness after the procedure, and you will not feel as groggy or nauseous.

The Brazilian Butt Lift involves two stages:

Stage one

Using liposuction, fat will be removed from the donor area of your body. Popular areas include the thighs, hips, and abdomen.

Not only will the appearance of your buttocks be enhanced, but you will also have a reduction in fatty deposits from your thighs, hips or abdomen. The surgeon will make several small incisions where the liposuction cannulas will be inserted. The fat is then removed, processed and purified.

Stage two

The fatty deposits are then injected into your buttocks. This will generally involve multiple injections. The surgeon will sculpt the buttocks, and it will then appear rounder and larger.

Using your own fat, rather than inserting an implant, means you have natural looking and feeling results. Removing the fat from another area of the body also allows for you to improve two areas of the body at once – the donor area, and your buttocks.

After the Brazilian butt lift, it is normal to experience swelling and bruising. This will begin to subside after a few weeks. While you will be able to notice the results of the procedure immediately, the final results will only be noticeable once the swelling has completely gone down. This can take up to three months.

After the procedure, you may feel some pain and discomfort, which can be managed by taking suitable medication. However, you should be able to walk around the day after the procedure.

During your recovery period, you will have to avoid sitting and lying on your buttocks. For the first few weeks, you will have to sleep on your stomach and sides. When you have to sit down, it is important to put the weight on your thighs, rather than your buttocks.

You will be encouraged to wear a compression garment for up to six weeks following the procedure.

The surgeons and medical team will keep in contact with you during your recovery period in order to monitor your progress and ensure you have the best results.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQS

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

Use an antiseptic wash prior to surgery

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, as it just uses the patient’s own body fat.

It is an extremely safe procedure.

Are there any potential complications?

The risks include bleeding, infection, and collection of fluid under the skin, swelling and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). 

The surgeon takes special precautions to minimise the risk of complications developing after the brazilian butt lift.

Is this a day procedure?

Yes. You will be able to return home once the effects of the ClearSleep anaesthetic have worn off.

When can I return to work?

Most people will take 7 to 10 days off work. However, you will not be able to sit for two weeks, so if you are in a job that requires a lot of sitting you will need to ensure you are comfortable during the day.

When can I start exercising?

You should avoid strenuous physical exercise for at least six weeks.

Will I have to wear a compression garment?

You will have to wear a compression garment. This will help to speed up the recovery period by minimising bruising and swelling. It will also help to maintain the shape of your buttocks, giving you the best results.

What is the best sleeping position after having a Brazilian Butt Lift?

You will not be able to sit on your buttocks for the first two weeks after surgery, this includes when you sleep. You will have to ensure you sleep on your side or your front.
