Overview

The Brazilian butt lift is a popular way to talk about a procedure that combines liposuction and fat grafting to reshape the buttocks. By taking fat from the waist area, outer thighs, and underneath the buttocks then preparing it and injecting it into the central buttocks, the cheeks can be made rounder, perkier, and project more.

You avoid the risks involved in buttocks implants (like displacement or infection) because we use your body's own fat. Successful results are very technique dependent. Never have foreign substances such as silicone injected as catastrophic results have been reported. Recovery from the Brazilian butt lift takes about 1-2 weeks, and you'll see your final results in 3-6 months.

Why Have a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The proportion and shape of your buttocks are determined by genetics; your skeletal structure and how your body stores fat influence how all parts of your body look, including your lower body. While diet and exercise can help you maintain healthy body weight and muscle tone, you might still be unhappy if your buttocks appear to be flat and lacks shape.

Brazilian butt lift surgery from Memphis Plastic Surgery Group can help you overcome your genes by reshaping your buttock and hips, lower back, and thighs.

A Brazilian Butt lift can:

  • Enhance curves
  • Reduce fat pockets
  • Improve clothing fit
  • More youthful appearance.
  • Improve proportion by improving the balance between your upper and lower body.

What’s Involved in Brazilian butt lift surgery?

A Brazilian butt lift involves three basic steps:

  • We’ll remove fat from your hips, lower back, thighs, abdomen, and/or other areas with liposuction.
  • The extracted fat is purified and prepped to be transferred.
  • Our cosmetic surgeon will inject fat into specific points on your buttocks to improve the shape and increase volume.

This surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. We use general anesthesia or a combination of sedation and local anesthesia. Not all of the injected fat will acclimate to the new location, but your cosmetic surgeon at Memphis Plastic Surgery Group will be sure to take this into account. They’ll inject extra fat into your buttock to make sure your final goals match your expectation and desire.

Differences between Brazilian butt lift and butt implants.

A significant advantage to the Brazilian butt lift surgery from Memphis Plastic Surgery Group is the fact that is increases size without implants. It can be risky to put anything synthetic into your buttocks, so this treatment doesn’t have the same risks as implants. When performed by a specially trained cosmetic surgeon in an accredited facility, the procedure is unlikely to have a complication and can look and feel incredibly natural.

If you’re very lean, you might not have enough fat to transfer, making implants your only option to achieve the results you’re looking for. While implants can be an okay option, don’t forget the risk that comes with implants, such as capsular contracture and a higher risk for infection. Buttock implants might also look and feel unnatural in comparison to a well-executed Brazilian butt lift.
