What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift describes a cosmetic procedure that enhances the size and contour of the buttocks. This differs from a butt implant procedure, where a silicone-filled device is inserted into the gluteal tissue. The Brazilian butt lift offers a safer alternative with a lower risk of rejection or other complications.

A Brazilian Butt Lift in East Orange employs liposuction to remove fat from one area of the lower body, such as the hips, thighs, or lower abdomen, using a suction device attached to a small steel instrument, called a cannula. During this stage of the procedure, your board-certified plastic surgeon will make small incisions and insert the cannula into the target areas between skin and muscle to expel fat. Finally, the plastic surgeon will purify the fat and prepare it for transfer before injecting it into the buttocks, mostly near the upper region, to achieve a natural, fuller shape.

Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Right for You?

A Brazilian butt lift reshapes and augments the size of the buttocks. A Brazilian Butt Lift proves ideal for patients struggling with flat, uneven, or saggy buttocks, and who want a natural, safe augmentation without silicone implants. Ideal Brazilian Butt Lift candidates must have extra fat available in at least two other areas of their body, as well as adequate good skin elasticity, as this fat will be used for liposuction and then inserted into the buttocks during the procedure. For patients with extra or saggy skin, a Brazilian Butt Lift will not resolve the issue. As such, patients in East Orange should instead consider a thigh or butt lift as an alternative route to their ideal silhouette.

What Is the Recovery Process for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

After the Brazilian Butt Lift, patients should avoid sitting or lying down on their buttocks for two weeks. Instead, patients will need to lie down, stand, or kneel during daily activities and sleep on their stomachs during the night. For optimal recovery, patients should also avoid driving and prolonged soaking, such as baths, hot tubs, and pools.

Seven weeks into the recovery, patients can sit up in a modified position — with the help of a “donut” cushion or a pillow underneath the thighs to reduce pressure on the buttocks. After two months, the Brazilian Butt Lift will appear mostly healed with minimal swelling; however, the full results may not become visible until about six months after the procedure.

Patients can expect minimal scarring on the buttocks due to the use of a syringe during surgery. They may have one or more small scars at the liposuction site, though these will usually fade completely with time. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through a healthy diet and low-impact physical activity, such as taking walks to improve circulation, will aid in the recovery process. Lower body exercises, such as leg lifts, lunges, and squats can also help maintain the desired shape.

How Long Will Results Last?

The improved buttocks size and shape from a Brazilian Butt Lift will last several years to over a decade without follow-up treatments, assuming patients maintain a consistent, healthy weight. If patients gain weight, this can significantly impact the results, as both the native and transferred fat cells will enlarge beyond the desired shape.

In addition, losing weight can cause the fat cells in the buttocks to shrink, thus reversing the results. When these situations occur, the patient will need to consult their plastic surgeon to determine the best solution moving forward.
