Having a good body is a confidence booster. At some point, we all desire an hourglass figure or a more masculine chest. Some of us find the time in our busy schedules to work out and follow a healthy lifestyle. But sometimes, it’s as though no matter what we do, the results just aren’t showing.

Many people desire a rounder buttocks. Unfortunately, no amount of cardio or weight training seems to reshape the buttocks the way you want. Plastic surgery has an answer to your problem: the Brazilian butt lift.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a plastic surgery procedure that is used to lift up and enhance the shape of your butt. The procedure involves injecting a person’s buttocks with fat that is extracted from the other areas of the body. Brazilian butt lifts are great for people who want to get a perkier rear end.

Your Consultation

During your Brazilian butt lift consultation with your plastic surgeon, make sure to discuss your medical history and mention any previous drug allergies or surgeries. This helps your surgeon to rule out any risks that might present themselves during the procedure, resulting in a lowered chance of complications.

You will be asked to refrain from taking painkillers like ibuprofen and aspirin before and after your procedure, as these are blood thinners and may cause complications. You will also need to avoid smoking, as it can damage the health of your skin, making the healing process take longer.

Discuss your Brazilian butt lift expectations and goals with your surgeon so that he can modify his techniques based on what you need. Always keep your expectations realistic.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

At the start of the procedure, you will be administered either local or general anesthesia depending upon your choice and the state of your health. Once this is done, fat extraction will be performed. Liposuction is used to suction out the fat from specific areas using a cannula. Gentle liposuction will be necessary in order to preserve the health of as many harvested fat cells as possible.

The next step is to purify the required fat cells, separating out unnecessary fluids and damaged and dead cells. Most surgeons prefer small fat particles. The final step involves injecting these fat cells into the buttocks and then contouring them to achieve the desired shape.

The Brazilian butt lift is an extremely safe procedure, since no other synthetic fillers are used anywhere in the procedure. The buttocks are injected with fat cells from the client’s own body, so the chances of the body rejecting it are much lower.


Post-operative care after this procedure includes a lot of rest. Patients who have undergone a Brazilian butt lift will not be allowed to sit on their buttocks for some time. Patients will be required to wear compression garments and sit on a medical cushion in order to speed up recovery. It is advisable to stay away from physical exertion for a time.
