The Brazilian butt lift is a popular term for a combination of liposuction and fat grafting intended 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.

The risks involved in buttocks implants (such as displacement or infection) are avoided, as the patient’s own fat is used. 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 three weeks with the final results apparent in 3-6 months.
