The Brazilian Butt Lift

Liposuction with Fat Transfer

Dr. E. Ronald Finger has offered the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure for the past 2 decades or more and has helped patients achieve a more balanced and curvy body shape for a long time.

According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic surgery, “Butt Lifts” via fat transfer and butt augmentations are the Top Cosmetic Procedure for 2021. The classic hourglass shape (full buttocks, narrow waist) of the female body has been thought to be aesthetically pleasing for thousands of years and is what many men find universally most attractive today. Covid-19 has caused women and men to gain weight, and women are opting for liposuction and fat transfer like never before.

Reality TV, Instagram, Tik-Tok, and other Social Media Platforms are featuring women with full butts and tiny waists making it even more desirable for younger women to undergo this procedure. Since it requires extra fat to perform this procedure Covid-19 has helped the cause significantly. Most of us moved less and ate more, causing weight gain in areas we never thought we could gain weight.

What’s commonly referred to as the “Brazilian Butt Lift” has become so popular in the U.S over the past decade that Plastic Surgeons are staying booked 6-months to a year or more. The procedure is especially popular since the Brazilian Butt lift does not involve placement of implants which can look unnatural and require maintenance. In addition, implants can feel hard and uncomfortable.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Because the Brazilian Butt Lift uses the patient’s own fat it is considered a more natural approach. The fat is harvested from areas with excessive fat (such as the lower abdomen, flanks, and hips) through liposuction. This fat is then purified and injected into areas of the butt, hips, and thighs to produce a more attractive and more curvaceous body profile.

The Brazilian Butt lift can enhance the natural curves for patients who are unhappy with their shape and is also the perfect solution to add volume and roundness to a flat or small butt for patients seeking a more balanced body profile. If you are looking for a fuller, curvier butt, a buttock lift may be a good option. The Brazilian Butt Lift can also be combined with procedures such as Renuvion for skin tightening and Cellfina for Cellulite. Ask Dr. Finger about options depending on what your body goals are.

The preferred method for performing buttock augmentation is fat transfer, in which we use the patient’s own body fat to reshape the butt, hips, and even upper thighs. Fat injection achieves a more natural result, has a lower risk of infection, and also contours the areas around the buttocks.

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a two-part procedure. First, the patient’s own fat is harvested through liposuction. The most common areas for liposuction are the lower back, waist, flanks (love handles), thighs, and stomach. This not only provides the raw material for buttock enhancement but also contours the areas around the butt for a more dramatic result. In the second step, the donor fat is added to the buttocks at different depths to ensure an even, attractive augmentation. This method of fat injection lends a shapely contour to the buttocks that last a long time. Special attention is given to the upper area of the butt so the entire area looks full, naturally lifted, and round.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Patients should avoid sitting (to avoid pressure) or lying on their backs for two to three weeks to maximize results. Lay on your side stand, sit only for short periods of time. During recovery, compression garments may be worn to reduce swelling. Patients may experience some discomfort, bruising, and swelling during the recovery process. Most patients return to work two weeks after their buttock augmentation and are able to resume all normal activities within four weeks. Excess swelling typically resolves within a few weeks of the procedure.
