Brazilian Butt Lift

There are many ways to improve the contour and shape of your body. If you are bothered by excess fat deposits in all the wrong places, liposuction with fat transfer to the buttocks may be a good option for you. In plastic surgery, this is commonly referred to as the Brazilian Butt Lift. Generally, liposuction slims and reshapes the body contours, improving lines and proportion. This allows us to remove the fat from areas where we do not want it. This is common in areas such as the stomach, waist, and inner thighs. Once we have removed the fat, we can process it and use it for natural shaping in areas that we want to add more volume. By redistributing this fat to the buttocks, we can create a curvy, shapelier appearance to the midline and waist. This is a way to use your own natural fat to augment your buttocks, rather than using unnatural material or implants. This leads to safer outcomes, and a more natural curvature to your waistline.

Can the fat be reabsorbed by my body?

When we perform a Brazilian Butt Lift, we are using your own fat to augment your buttock area. This means that the fat can be reabsorbed by your body. This occurs because the fat that is reinjected is a natural, living part of you. As with any surgery, results can vary depending on many factors. Typically, about 50% of the fat reinjected will remain after surgery. We will often have success from just one round of fat grafting to the buttocks, and are always finding new innovative ways to remove and process the fat in order to have the most successful results. Depending on the look you are going for, we can discuss your personal preferences in detail and tailor the procedure that fits your individual needs.

What to expect after surgery?

As with any surgery, experiencing soreness and discomfort after the procedure is expected. Recovery time can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. Typically after surgery, you will experience pain for 1-2 days, and soreness for 2 weeks- 2 months. Depending on the amount of liposuction performed and the nature of your profession, you can likely be back to work in 1-2 weeks.
