When to Consider a Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift refers to a cosmetic procedure done to treat sagging and flat backsides. This procedure provides instant volume and fullness to a patient’s buttocks using unwanted fat from the abdomen, thighs and hips using liposuction. A Brazilian butt lift can also provide an uplifted look to a patient’s backside and give them a natural look.

During a Brazilian butt lift, liposuction is done to get rid of excess fat from the selected parts of the body. The main areas where fat is removed from include outer thighs, abdomen, and arms. The fat is then purified and re-injected into strategic areas of the buttocks.

Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Butt Implants

While a butt implant is made of silicon, a Brazilian butt lift uses the patient’s body fat for a natural look. Since the patient’s body fat is used, the risk of infection is very low, and there is a quick recovery time.

What to Look Forward to After the Procedure

A Brazilian butt lift will give you softer and tighter contours. You will also have a youthful and more perky appearance.


The suitable anesthesia method varies from case to case. For general anesthesia, you will sleep during the whole operation. For intravenous anesthesia, you will be given sedatives so that you may relax throughout the procedure.

How Long Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Last?

The Brazilian butt lift remains intact for years. For best results, patients are advised to maintain a healthy and stable body weight. Dramatic weight losses or gains can affect the feel and shape of the butt lift.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift’s Recovery Time?

You might have to wear a support garment for a short period. In many cases, full recovery can be achieved after a month.

When Should You Opt for a Brazilian Butt Lift

The main things to consider before you opt for a Brazilian Butt Lift is the cost, finding a qualified surgeon, and how long it will take for you to recover.
