To increase the size and projection of the buttocks without implants, a Brazilian butt lift uses the patient’s own fat for added volume. Fat is taken from an area of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, then purified and prepared for injection into the buttocks. While the body may absorb some fat over time, the majority of the injected fat will remain in the buttocks for a full, round butt made famous on the beaches of Brazil. The plastic surgeons at The Peer Group in Florham Park have helped many of their male and female patients develop their desired body shape through a Brazilian butt lift.

Surgical Technique

During the initial consultation, the body will be assessed so that it can be determined where to perform liposuction in order to extract the necessary amount of fat needed to perform the transfer. Multiple donor sites may be considered. The fat will be removed separated from any fluid and blood and then transferred into smaller syringes so that it can be injected into the buttock region. This process will  be repeated and many layers may be used until the desired result is achieved. The incisions from a Brazilian butt lift are very small and thus scarring after the procedure is minimal.

During/After Surgery

A Brazilian butt lift is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete depending on how many donor sites are used and how many layers it takes to achieve the desired fullness. Following surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas as well as the buttocks, usually a special garment is worn to help decrease the swelling. Patients will find it difficult to sit, but may do so once the swelling has subsided. It will take about 3 full months for the body to recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs

Bumpy Appearance?

If the injections are done professionally, the result should look and feel natural. During the procedure, additional liposuction may be used to help smooth out uneven skin, as well as ensure that the surface has a correct and even contour. It is important to find a reputable and highly-skilled surgeon with a special expertise in performing the Brazilian butt lift surgery.

Fat Transfer or Implants?

Both techniques can be used by cosmetic surgeons and can achieve good results. Some patients simply do not want a foreign device in their body and feel that the fat transfer method is safe and natural. A disadvantage of fat transfers, however, is that they may not last as long as an implant. Some of the injected fat will absorb naturally into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique during the consultation so the right decision can be made.

Weight Gain?

Weight gain or loss could alter the results of surgery. for the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
