What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is designed to improve the size and shape of a patient’s buttocks so that it fits better to the persons figure and offers an attractive, prominent rear end.
The Brazilian butt lift procedure is performed by extracting fat from regions of the body such as the back, abdomen, hips, and thighs through liposuction. The fat cells are cleansed and then the best tissue is utilized for injection into the buttocks at different depths for a natural look and feel. The end result is a rounder, fuller rear end.

A Butt Implant procedure or Buttock augmentation, requires the surgical insertion of artificial implants (ie Silicone) into the buttocks. This is done to improve the size and shape of the buttocks.
The procedure can last for up to 20 years or more.
Duration of procedure/surgery:
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure usually takes about 2 or 3 hours to complete.
This can range from 1-2 days, or up to 6 days.
For the first week or two after surgery, the patient will wear a special surgical garment for comfort and to minimize swelling. The majority of persons can return to work in 2 weeks, as long as it involves a minimum amount of sitting. However, within 4 weeks, normal activities can be re-started.
The risks of a Brazilian Butt lift include:
swelling and bruising
possible need for a revision surgery at a later date
