Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift has become very popular in the last few years. The sensuality of the buttocks, whether in clothes or in swimsuits, attracts the attention of men and women alike. This form of buttocks augmentation helps to increase the size and volume of a patient’s rear end.

The Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift
This buttocks-enhancement surgery is a popular body procedure that accomplishes two main goals:
- Natural augmentation of the rear end without buttocks implants
- Removal of excess fat from trouble areas of the body
Areas typically targeted for harvesting of excess body fat include the stomach, back, and thighs. Removing this fat results in more attractive-looking contours.
Because only the patient’s natural fat is used in fat-transfer buttocks augmentation, there is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction to the material. The results are incredibly long-lasting.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
At the start of the Brazilian butt lift, either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia is used. Once it has taken effect, liposuction can be used to harvest excess fat. This involves the insertion of a cannula, a thin tube. The tube is used to loosen the fat from the surrounding tissues, and then vacuum suction is employed to remove the loosened fat through the tube.
The harvested fat will then be purified. This process removes unneeded materials and leaves healthy fat cells, which can then be used to augment the buttocks.
Finally, the healthy fat can be injected into the buttocks. By adding fat to the central buttocks, the projection of the buttocks can be enhanced. By adding fat to the upper portion of the buttocks, the full volume of a shapely butt can be duplicated. The fat is injected at various depths to ensure even enhancement.
The injection process takes time, but precision is vital in order to ensure that the transferred fat connects with the blood supply in the region. When the cells are healthy and thriving in their new location, the results last much longer.
Healing After the Procedure
Dr. Rachel will give you post-operative directions to follow once your Brazilian butt lift is complete. Make sure to follow these as closely as possible, since this is the best way to avoid any complications and to get optimal results.
It will be necessary to take time off from work. Most patients require around two weeks off. During this time, you will be wearing a post-surgical elastic compression garment. This garment helps to control bruising and swelling in the region. Ice packs can also aid in this process.
You will not be able to sit directly on your rear end for two to three weeks, since pressure can affect the health of the transferred fat. Being gentle with the area is vital to preserve these fat cells.
You will need to avoid swimming in pools, the ocean, and hot tubs for a period of around four weeks. You will also need to avoid physically taxing activities like sports and heavy exercise for a month or two.
