Brazilian Butt Lift

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular cosmetic procedure at Illume Cosmetic Surgery that involves the liposuction of fat from one area of the body, often times the hips and lower abdomen, that is then transferred to the buttocks to create more fullness.  The removal of fat from one area and transfer to another area helps to create the desired hourglass look that is often times sought after and seen in celebrities like Jennifer Lopez or Kim Kardashian.

Gluteoplasty or Buttock Augmentations can reshape and improve the appearance of the entire lower back and buttock region.  Many celebrities prefer the Brazilian Butt Lift over artificial implants because of the more natural appearance.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

The Brazilian Butt Lift is typically performed under general anesthesia, but in procedures where a very minimal amount of fat is transferred, your cosmetic surgeon may elect to use local anesthetics (numbing medication) instead.

Your surgeon will start with liposuction to remove the fat from other areas of your body, such as your hips, stomach and thighs.  The areas to target are decided prior to surgery based on where the most volume can be obtained and what areas the patient would like to see reshaped.  Liposuction itself involves making incisions in the skin and then use a tube to remove fat from the body.

The fat stores that have just been removed from your body are purified and readied for injection into your buttocks.

Your surgeon finishes by injecting the processed fat into the specific areas of the buttocks to create a more founded, full look.  They make three to five incisions around the buttocks for the fat transfers.

Both liposuction and fat transfer incisions are closed with stiches.  We then apply a compression garment against the affected areas of the skin to minimize your risk of bleeding and reduce scarring.

Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Benefits

Unlike other forms of buttock surgery, such as placement of silicone buttock implants, a Brazilian Butt Lift is touted for providing more natural-looking results while also creating more roundness and projection in your backside.  It can also help address certain issues such as the sagging and shapelessness that sometimes occurs with age.  You might also consider the procedure if you’re bothered by figure imbalances that make it difficult to wear clothing comfortably.

Another benefit to the Brazilian Butt Lift is that there is a lower risk of infection compared to silicone buttock implants.  It has a significantly better safety profile than other substances, such as silicone caulking and sealants, that are sometimes illegally injected into the buttocks by people not qualified to perform the procedure
