The shape and composition of the buttocks is largely determined by genetics. Despite diet and exercise, it can be hard to achieve the look you want. You may feel that your buttocks are too flat and lack nicely rounded curves in just the right places. The buttocks augmentation procedure known as the Brazilian Butt Lift can give your behind a more desirable shape and tone.
Let our surgeons help give you the shape you desire.
During the butt lift procedure, we remove fat from other parts of the body, then transfer the removed fat into the buttocks area with a syringe. We may need to make multiple incisions and multiple transfers depending on which sites the fatty tissue is being taken from, but the incisions are small and scarring is minimal. Your surgeon then shapes the region so it has a natural look and feel. Typically, surgery takes around two hours to complete under general anesthesia.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is often done in conjunction with a thigh lift, and both procedures can be performed together.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is recovery like? The Brazilian Butt Lift is considered an outpatient procedure, and you go home the same day you have the surgery. Initially, you may experience bruising and swelling in the buttock region, and although it may be uncomfortable, you are encouraged to sit when the swelling subsides. It takes around three months for your body to fully recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.
What happens if I gain weight after the surgery? Significant weight gain can counteract the effects of the surgery, as fat can accumulate again in areas around the buttocks. We suggest you maintain a diet and exercise plan after the surgery.
Is this the same as getting implants? No. The Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat that is already stored in your body, while implant surgery uses foreign materials. Each has its advantages: implants last longer, while the butt lift gives the bottom a more natural look and feel. However, over time the transferred fat cells may be gradually reabsorbed by the body.
