Your Brazilian Butt Lift

Over time the skin and muscle of the buttocks may lose tone and volume. In some cases, patients may have always had small buttocks, which caused them to feel as though their body was out of proportion. Procedures to enhance the shape and proportion of the buttocks have increased in popularity over the last several years.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Buttock or gluteal augmentation, known commonly as a Brazilian Butt Lift or simply a Butt Lift involves liposuctioning fat from one or more areas of the body and then transferring the fat to the buttocks to increase size and projection and/or to improve the shape of the buttocks and improve overall body proportion.

Slimmer patients may need to have liposuction of several areas to harvest enough fat to make a significant difference, and women with particularly low body fat might not be candidates for this Butt Lift procedure, as there might not be enough fat to harvest.

What’s the Procedure Like?

Liposuction is performed through small incisions that usually leave behind very inconspicuous scars, with fat being harvested via a sterile collection device. The transfer of fat is carried out by processing the fat to remove the blood and local anesthetic fluid called tumescent fluid. The fat is then placed in syringes, which are attached to cannulas similar to those used to perform liposuction. The fat is then injected into the buttocks. In addition to using liposuction to harvest the fat for transfer some liposuction is also performed on the lower back and outer thighs if necessary to better shape the buttocks.

When will I See My Results?

While the results are immediately visible after the surgery, it can take several months to see the final result after the resolution of swelling and bruising. Also, some of the transplanted fat will not “take,” and your body will absorb it. You’ll likely see the full results within three to four months of the procedure once your swelling has had time to fully subside.

On average most patients will retain about 70% to 80% of the transferred fat. Most women are very pleased with the new shape and size of their buttocks and the overall improvement in body proportions. The results will vary over time if the patient gains or loses weight as the transplanted fat can grow or shrink just like normal fat in other areas of your body.

Your Aftercare Experience

The first few weeks after the procedure are very important. Too much movement can affect the amount of fat that “takes,” as can too much direct pressure on the buttocks. In order to get the best results from the Butt Lift, Dr. Garramone recommends that patients limit movement for the first week. 

He does not recommend sitting or lying on the back while sleeping for the first two weeks and then for the next two weeks sitting on a pillow for short periods. After one month, there are no restrictions. During your consultations, we’ll walk you through everything you could possibly need to know about the aftercare process, so you’ll know exactly what to expect as you recover and heal.
