Brazilian Butt Lift Q & A

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a two-in-one procedure used to decrease unwanted fat in specific body areas, while adding volume to other areas of the body. You can improve body contours and revitalize your overall appearance. You and your surgeon decide on an area of your body where you’d like to remove fat via liposuction, and then your surgeon processes the fat cells and transfers them into your buttocks with an injection. Because they are true fat cells and not artificial implants, the results look and feel just like a natural part of your body.

The Brazilian butt lift can improve upon these types of posteriors:

  • Flat
  • Sagging
  • Asymmetrical
  • Irregularly shaped
  • Small

What can I expect during the Brazilian butt lift procedure?

Your experienced plastic surgeon at Meadows Plastic Surgery makes sure you know exactly what to expect on the date of your surgery. The procedure begins with oral sedation and local anesthesia to numb the area the fat is harvested from.

The phases of the Brazilian butt lift include:


Your expert plastic surgeon will begin your procedure by harvest fat cells from donor sites. The doctor might utilize one of several approaches:

  • Conventional liposuction
  • Power-assisted liposuction
  • Hand-held syringe liposuction
  • External ultrasound-assisted liposuction
  • Internal ultrasound-assisted liposuction

Fat Purification

The next step in the procedure is the fat purification process in which the harvested fat cells undergo filtration, washing, or possibly centrifugation. This takes place to remove dead or unhealthy cells and extra fluids.

Re-injecting fat

Once the fat has been purified, your surgeon expertly maps out the tiny incision spots on various areas of the gluteus to achieve the desired shape and size. Then your surgeon closes the incisions with stitches, and gives you compression garments to minimize bleeding.


The recovery stage of the Brazilian butt lift is very important. You’ll get thorough instructions from your provider, but patients should implement the following steps into their recovery routine: 

  • Take one week of rest from work and daily activities
  • Rest on soft, comfortable surfaces
  • Use the provided compression garment
  • Take medication in the prescribed doses at the recommended times
  • Eat healthy and drink plenty of fluids
  • Consult your doctor at each stage of the healing process 

In the case of the Brazilian butt lift, recovery involves a period of several weeks during which you cannot sit down directly on your butt. You will be instructed to go home with a special pillow that alleviates pressure on the newly placed fat.

After some time has passed, your surgeon allows you to sit down on a donut-shaped seat or a pillow to relieve some pressure from your buttocks. You must consider whether or not this is possible for you while considering the surgery.

Am I a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?

In order to undergo a Brazilian butt lift, you must meet several criteria. Your physician at Meadows Plastic Surgery asks you various questions about your health, family history, and reasons behind your interest in the surgery. They might determine that you’re a good candidate for a butt lift if you:

  • Have substantial fat in one or more areas for removal
  • Feel unsatisfied with the shape or size of your buttocks
  • Have adequate skin elasticity
  • Don’t smoke
  • Are at a stable and healthy weight
