Many women are now turning to butt augmentation to achieve fuller, more curvaceous buttocks. In particular, butt augmentation with fat transfer is now one of the most requested procedures, and is considered safe and very effective. The Brazilian butt lift uses the body’s own fat to sculpt and reshape the butt.

What is the Brazilian butt lift?
The Brazilian butt lift is a butt enhancement procedure that uses fat grafting.  The fat is usually harvested from areas such as the lower back, thighs, and abdomen,where there are pockets of excess fat. The Brazilian butt lift is really 2 procedures in one, as it involves both liposuction and fat transfer.

The Procedure
The Brazilian butt lift is usually performed under general anesthesia. In addition, local anesthesia is used to numb the donor areas to minimize any discomfort. Fat is removed from the areas targeted for liposuction, with the use of a small tube known as a cannula. After being extracted, the fat is purified. A small incision is then made in the buttocks, through which the fat is injected.

Post-op Recovery
There will be some pain, minor swelling, and bruising after the procedure, but prescription medication is usually adequate to ease the discomfort. Patients are required to wear a specially designed compression garment during the healing process, but can sit down the day following the procedure. However, patients are usually not able to return to work until about 1 week after surgery.

Butt augmentation with fat transfer is considered a safe procedure. Since the fat comes from the patient’s own body, there is less likelihood of an allergic reaction. That’s one reason why the Brazilian butt lift has become such a popular augmentation option.
