Despite the catchy name, many people aren’t quite sure what a Brazilian butt lift entails. The procedure involves a natural fat transfer from one area of the body to the buttocks to create a full, lifted, perky derriere.
Fat is first harvested by liposuction from different areas of the body, separated out, and then injected carefully into the buttocks to shape it. As the buttocks gain greater fullness in the desired areas, this pulls up the lower portion of the buttocks, creating the lift. Because it is combined with liposuction to other areas – usually the flanks or abdomen – the result is an overall much more aesthetically pleasing look.
There is a significant difference between a standard butt lift and the Brazilian butt lift. Besides a more sensual, hourglass figure, the Brazilian butt lift offers several benefits. In contrast to buttocks implants, your own fat is soft, natural feeling and won’t shift over time like many implants do. There is also a far lower risk of infection with our procedure since we use your own body fat rather than any artificial implants. The recovery process is far quicker, lasting for only about a week, when others can last up to a month.
The Brazilian butt lift is not for everyone but is a great option for anyone with buttocks in need of a lift, more fullness or overall reshaping. This procedure helps adjust any flat, sagging or asymmetrical buttocks as well.
