What is Brazilian Butt Lift ?

A Brazilian butt lift is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without implants. Excess fat is removed from the hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs with liposuction, and a portion of this fat is then strategically injected into the buttocks.

A skilled cosmetic surgeon can improve the proportions of the entire lower body with Brazilian butt lift surgery, helping a patient lose fat in common “problem areas” and enhance the buttocks, with results lasting many years.


  • You want a hip reinforcement without implants
  • Good skin tone on hips and hips
  • You have enough fat to store in other areas to harvest the injection into the buttocks

Treatment Timeline:

  • Fat is removed from the hips, lower back, thighs, abdomen, and/or other areas with liposuction
  • The extracted fat is purified and prepared for transfer
  • The cosmetic surgeon injects fat into specific points on the buttocks to increase volume and improve shape


  • The results of the Brazilian docking lift can last for many years. Fat cells removed by liposuction will not return to this area, and fat cells transferred to the buttocks will remain in the next few years. However, significant weight fluctuations can affect your results, so maintain a steady weight to keep your results in top condition.
  • The result usually ends in 6 months after surgery, after the residual swelling disappears and you fully heal. By this time, your curve hips and improved lower body proportions will be evident in the way you look and fit.

Things to Do:

  • Have some Gatorade or a similar sports drink available. You will need to stay hydrated after your Brazilian butt lift surgery due to the effects of liposuction.
  • Having an operation on the buttocks requires some special modifications during recovery. You will not be allowed to sit or lie directly on your buttocks for about 2 weeks after a Brazilian butt lift.
  • During this time, you will need to sleep on your stomach or side, and either lie this way or stand for all activity except using the toilet.
  • The sitting position needs to be adjusted, using a “doughnut” seat or placing a pillow under your thigh to avoid pressing on the hips. Normal seating activities are usually allowed after about 8 weeks.
  • Given you follow your cosmetic surgeon’s instructions, you should be able to resume light daily activities within 1 week after surgery and return to work within 10 to 14 days.
  • Be sure to finish your entire prescription of antibiotics

Things to Avoid:

  • Do not smoke for at least one week after surgery.
  • Do not use aspirin-containing products for at least one week. You may take Tylenol or pain medication as prescribed.
  • No weight loss diets for at least 3 weeks. Make sure to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet during this time.
  • Avoid exposing the incisions to direct sunlight for at least 6 weeks. After 6 weeks, apply sunscreen (at least SPF 15) to the area of the incision if you will be in the sun for extended periods of time.

Side Effects:

  • Blood clots, excess blood loss, bruising, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary and cardiac complications, pain and numbness, infection, lidocaine toxicity and fluid shifts, swelling, asymmetry, oil cyst, hematoma, stretch marks, and cellulite.
  • It may also cause a fat embolism, which is the lungs inflammation caused by the fat injection in the bloodstream.
  • Can possibly happen is the negative impact of the anesthesia, giving a bad reaction.
  • Fat necrosis could be one possible effect that leads to a scar tissue because the fat that was transferred on the buttocks lost its supply of blood and this results to firmness.
  • There will also be skin irregularities on the augmented part and wound dehiscence will also occur.
