Brazilian Butt Lift
Diyos Hospital / Our Services / Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure aimed at enhancing the shape and size of the buttocks. Unlike traditional butt augmentation procedures that use implants, a Brazilian butt lift involves transferring fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips, to the buttocks.

Doctors called plastic surgeons perform Brazilian butt lifts

Here’s how it typically works:

  • Liposuction: The surgeon removes excess fat from donor areas of the body through liposuction. These areas are usually chosen to enhance the overall contour of the body, such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, or lower back.

  • Fat processing: The harvested fat is then processed to purify it and prepare it for injection.

  • Fat injection: The purified fat is injected strategically into various areas of the buttocks to achieve the desired shape and volume. The surgeon carefully layers the fat to ensure a smooth, natural-looking result.

The Brazilian butt lift not only enhances the size and shape of the buttocks but also improves the contour of the entire lower body by removing fat from areas where it is unwanted.

Who is a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?

A good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift typically meets the following criteria:

  • Adequate fat reserves: Since the procedure involves fat transfer, the individual should have enough excess fat in other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips, to harvest for transfer to the buttocks.

  • Good overall health: Candidates should be in good general health and free from any conditions that could increase the risks associated with surgery or interfere with the healing process.

  • Stable weight: Candidates should have a stable weight, as significant fluctuations in weight can affect the results of the procedure. It’s generally recommended that individuals be at or near their ideal weight before undergoing a Brazilian butt lift.

  • Realistic expectations: It’s important for candidates to have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. While a Brazilian butt lift can enhance the size and shape of the buttocks, it may not be able to achieve dramatic changes, and individual results may vary.

  • Non-smoker: Smoking can increase the risk of complications during and after surgery, so candidates are typically advised to quit smoking prior to the procedure.

  • Commitment to recovery: Candidates should be willing to follow their surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully and commit to the recovery process, which may include wearing compression garments, avoiding sitting directly on the buttocks for a period of time, and avoiding strenuous activities.

  • Psychological readiness: Candidates should be psychologically prepared for the procedure and have a positive attitude towards the changes it will bring about in their appearance.

Procedure Details

What happens before a Brazilian butt lift procedure?

Before undergoing a Brazilian butt lift procedure, several steps typically occur to ensure that the process is safe and tailored to the individual’s specific needs:

  • Consultation: The first step is a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in Brazilian butt lifts. During this consultation, the surgeon will evaluate the individual’s overall health, discuss their goals and expectations for the procedure, and assess whether they are a suitable candidate for surgery.

  • Medical evaluation: The surgeon will conduct a thorough medical evaluation, which may include reviewing the individual’s medical history, performing a physical examination, and possibly ordering pre-operative tests such as blood tests or imaging studies.

  • Discussion of options: The surgeon will discuss the various options available for buttock enhancement, including the Brazilian butt lift technique, potential risks and complications, expected outcomes, and post-operative recovery.

  • Customized treatment plan: Based on the consultation and evaluation, the surgeon will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to the individual’s unique anatomy, goals, and preferences.

  • Pre-operative instructions: The individual will receive detailed pre-operative instructions from the surgeon or their medical team. These instructions may include guidelines for medications to avoid before surgery, dietary restrictions, smoking cessation if applicable, and instructions for preparing for the day of surgery.

  • Consent process: Before undergoing surgery, the individual will be required to sign a consent form indicating that they understand the risks, benefits, and potential complications of the procedure.

  • Pre-operative appointment: Typically, there will be a pre-operative appointment a few days before the surgery. During this appointment, the individual may undergo additional pre-operative assessments, such as pre-operative photographs, and have an opportunity to ask any remaining questions they may have about the procedure.

  • Final preparations: In the days leading up to the surgery, the individual should follow the surgeon’s instructions carefully, which may include avoiding certain medications, arranging for transportation to and from the surgical facility, and making arrangements for post-operative care and recovery.

By following these steps and working closely with their plastic surgeon, individuals can ensure that they are well-prepared for their Brazilian butt lift procedure and achieve the best possible outcomes.

What happens during a Brazilian butt lift procedure?

During a Brazilian butt lift procedure, several key steps are typically involved to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks:

  • Anesthesia: The surgery begins with the administration of anesthesia to ensure the individual’s comfort throughout the procedure. This may involve either general anesthesia, which puts the individual to sleep during the surgery, or local anesthesia with sedation, which numbs the area being treated while keeping the individual awake but relaxed.

  • Liposuction: The surgeon performs liposuction to harvest fat from areas of the body with excess fat, such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, or hips. Small incisions are made in the donor areas, and a thin tube called a cannula is inserted to suction out the fat. The harvested fat is collected in sterile containers and prepared for transfer to the buttocks.

  • Fat processing: The harvested fat is processed to purify it and remove excess fluids and impurities. This typically involves centrifugation or filtration to separate the fat cells from other components of the harvested tissue.

  • Fat injection: The purified fat is then injected strategically into various areas of the buttocks to enhance their shape, size, and contour. The surgeon carefully layers the fat to achieve a smooth, natural-looking result and may inject it into different depths of the buttock tissue to achieve the desired augmentation.

  • Sculpting and contouring: Throughout the fat injection process, the surgeon sculpts and contours the buttocks to create the desired shape and symmetry. This may involve adding volume to specific areas, smoothing out irregularities, and enhancing the overall contour of the buttocks.

  • Incision closure: Once the fat transfer is complete and the desired augmentation has been achieved, the surgeon closes the incisions with sutures or surgical tape. The incisions are typically small and strategically placed to minimize scarring and optimize cosmetic results.

  • Post-operative care: After the procedure, the individual is monitored closely in a recovery area until they are stable and awake from anesthesia. They may be provided with compression garments to wear to help reduce swelling and support the newly augmented buttocks during the healing process.


A Brazilian butt lift procedure is a highly customized surgery that requires skill and precision to achieve optimal results. By carefully performing liposuction, fat processing, and fat injection techniques, plastic surgeons can enhance the shape and size of the buttocks while creating natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing results.
