Brazilian Butt Lift Overview

A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure where fat is injected into each buttock to give a more round and fuller contour and to increase overall volume to achieve desired proportions. In Tampa, Orlando, and throughout Central Florida, women and men consider getting a Brazilian butt lift from board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kesh Nawada, to help them feel more attractive in clothing and swimsuits. A Brazilian butt lift is essentially a specialized fat transfer or fat graft. The fat is removed by liposuction from an area where the patient has excess fat, purified to preserve the ‘most healthy’ fat for greater long term volume retention, and then injected into the volume-deficient areas of the buttocks. The fat that is suctioned out and re-introduced into the body by injection, adheres to surrounding fat and connective tissue over time.  However, the body does not retain 100% of the fat injected, so Dr. Nawada will inject slightly more fat than the patient needs to reach their desired shape and fullness. Patients with loose skin may not be suitable candidates for this procedure; for these individuals, a surgical butt lift may be necessary.

Brazilian Butt Lift Surgical Technique

During the initial consultation, the body will be assessed so that it can be determined where to perform liposuction in order to extract the necessary amount of fat needed to perform the transfer. Multiple donor sites may be considered. The fat will be removed and grafted for a healthy, effective transfer. It will then be injected through a syringe into the buttocks. This process will take place over several steps, and many layers may be used until the desired result is achieved. The incisions from a Brazilian butt lift are very small and thus scarring after the procedure is minimal.

Brazilian Butt Lift During/After Surgery

A Brazilian butt lift is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete depending on how many donor sites are used and how many layers it takes to achieve the desired fullness. Following surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas as well as on the buttocks. Patients will find it difficult to sit, but are encouraged to do so once the swelling has subsided. It will take about 3 full months for the body to recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.

Brazilian Butt Lift Expected Cost

The cost for a Brazilian butt lift will vary depending on how many donor sites are used for liposuction to retrieve the necessary amount of fat. On average, this surgery will cost between $4,000-$7,000.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ's

Bumpy Appearance?

If the injections are done correctly, the result will look and feel natural. During the procedure, additional liposuction may be used to help smooth out uneven skin, as well as ensure that the surface has a correct and even contour. It is important to find a reputable and highly-skilled surgeon with a special expertise in performing the Brazilian butt lift surgery.

Fat Transfer or Implants?

Both techniques are commonly used by cosmetic surgeons and can achieve good results. Some patients simply do not want a foreign device in their body and feel that the fat transfer method is safe and natural. A disadvantage of fat transfers, however, is that they may not last as long as an implant. Some of the injected fat will absorb naturally into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique during the consultation so the right decision can be made.

Weight Gain?

Weight gain could compromise the results of the surgery. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
