Brazilian Butt Augmentation

One of the most surprisingly popular plastic surgery procedures today is called the Brazilian Butt Lift. This procedure removes fat from one area of the body, where it's not wanted, and put it somewhere that it's a bit more useful: the butt.

Butts are everywhere these days. If yours needs to be augmented or lifted, you may feel like there is no hope. This couldn’t be further from the truth. With cosmetic surgery, your backside can be sculpted and lifted to create the perfect shape for your figure. Hope is on its way with a butt lift and/or a butt augmentation procedure.

Candidates /Motivation for Procedure

Butt lifts and augmentations can do a number of things to your buttocks. With this surgery you can create a more lifted, youthful look or simply increase the size and alter the shape of your backside. No matter what your issues are with your butt, the lift and augmentation procedures will leave you feeling confident and reassured. There are several different ways to increase or improve your buttocks and your options are endless.

Procedure Description

Butt augmentation and lift procedures are one of the most popular and most requested cosmetic surgeries today because of the emphasis on backsides today. The following are a list of ways that you can improve the look of your backside:

Butt Implants: Traditional implants are great for increasing the size of your backside. Insertion of silicone implants into the butt will assure that your results will be permanent. These implants will sometimes need to be replaced after years of wear and tear, but often times they last for up to ten years after your initial surgery.

Fat Transfer: Fat transfer procedures are increasing in popularity because they are a less invasive procedure that still increases the size of your butt without the use of a foreign object/implant. Fat is taken from another area of the body during a liposuction-like procedure, and inserted into your backside to create the bigger, fuller look you desire- naturally!

Butt Lift: Butt lifts are similar to the fat transfer procedure mentioned above, but the fat is inserted specifically into the upper quadrant of your buttocks for a more lifted, youthful look. Patients more concerned with improvement and rejuvenation rather than size often seek out the butt lift procedure.


The risks associated with your butt augmentation depend on the type of procedure you decide on. Any cosmetic surgery that is invasive or requires general anesthesia will have its own set of potential complications. If you decide on a fat transfer technique that is less invasive, the likelihood of negative side effects is reduced. In all augmentation and lift case infection, swelling, bleeding and bruising are potential risks. Discussing the aftermath of your procedure with your surgeon will better prepare you for what to expect.


Recovery time is another issue that is in direct relation to which type of butt augmentation surgery you undergo. The level of invasiveness will affect your recovery time in that the more complex your surgery the longer your recovery time will be. Fat transfer procedures typically have a faster, safer recovery time because the incision points are much smaller. In a traditional butt implant procedure, recovery time will be determined by the healing time of your stitches. In all cases, your results will be seen immediately after your procedure with the exception of some swelling that may occur.
