A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that enhances the contouring and size of your buttocks. It’s a great option for men and women who want a fuller, rounder backside without relying on implants.
The procedure takes its name from the nation of Brazil, widely known for a body type that emphasizes firm, round, shapely bottoms. Also commonly called buttock augmentation or fat transfer, a Brazilian butt lift is actually a combination of two separate procedures.
You learn what to expect during your consultation regarding the procedure, recovery time, and expense. Dr. Ashjian also explains what changes you can achieve through a Brazilian butt lift.
If you decide to move forward, the first step is to harvest the fat used in the second part of the process. Liposuction removes fat from the targeted areas: most commonly from the thighs, abdomen, lower back, waist, or flanks.
That fat then goes through a purification process and is drawn into syringes to prepare for reintroduction into your body. Placing those injections requires attention to detail. The fat is placed within your buttocks through a series of injections placed at different depths to create a smooth and even augmentation.
Your body needs time to adjust to the fat-transfer process. The best way to achieve great results is by avoiding placing any pressure on your buttocks for at least two weeks, and three weeks is even better.
This gives your body a chance to incorporate the transferred fat into your tissues, reducing the risk of rejection. You should plan ways to relax and sleep in positions that don’t place any weight on your backside, which can be challenging.
A degree of swelling, bruising, and discomfort is normal in the days after a Brazilian butt lift. Over-the-counter pain medication is usually all that’s needed to address discomfort, and swelling will gradually subside. By six weeks following your procedure, all swelling should be gone, and you can see the final results.
