More youthful and perky buttocks can add sensuality to your body profile.

A brazilian butt lift is a butt augmentation procedure for people of all ages where fat is removed from one area of the body and the fat is carefully re-injected into into your buttocks. Typically a brazilian butt lift fills the upper quadrant of ones buttocks so that it appears lifted and perky.

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a win/win procedure.

It lets you take fat from unwanted places and use it to improve your body's profile. Your butt gets perky and youthful looking while your love handles, tummy, etc. get smaller. Additionally fat is one of the most well tolerated fillers available.  It has a natural appearance, lasts a long time and is safe. Most importantly, it spares the patient the inherent risks associated with fillers derived from animals or cadavers.

If you're considering a Brazilian butt lift surgery, this outline will give you a basic understanding of the procedure, how it's performed, and what results you can expect.  It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon.  Dr. Walker is more than happy to clarify any misunderstandings, please contact her office with any questions or concerns you may have.

What happens during Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?

Fat is liposuctioned from your hips, thighs, abdomen and back using very fine cannulas (a long, thin metal tube that is inserted into an area to suction fat from an area). This liposuction technique allows Dr. Walker to contour these body areas while she harvests fat.

After liposuction, the fat is purified and re-injected back into different areas of the buttocks and at various depths so that the patient will get the highest permanent absorption rate. Many very small incisions (about the size of a grain of rice) are made in buttocks which are used as the entry point for fat transfer. Dr. Walker will do her best to make your incisions inconspicuous. After fat transfer incisions are closed.

Correct injection methods are essential to achieve a uniform, smooth, natural appearance to the buttocks. The buttocks are sculpted restoring the empty volume on the inside, while lifting and tightening the outer skin laxity. This new fullness restores the butt to a more youthful shape.

Recovery from buttock augmentation is approximately 12 to 14 days.  The actual augmentation procedure is minimally invasive performed through extremely small incisions that leave undetectable scars. Patients are not allowed to sit on their buttocks for 72 hours and are able to return to work after two weeks.

Who would is a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Patients, who do not want buttock implants, or large scars, but are unhappy with the shape and size of his or her butt. Fat augmentation will add fullness to the entire butt or parts of it and enhance the contour. Candidates must have enough donor fat in other parts of their body – thighs, hips, abdomen, back, bra rolls- to transfer to their buttocks.
