One of the most asked-for procedures, a Brazilian butt lift can drastically improve the shape of your behind while slimming other areas of your body. Both surgical and nonsurgical options are available for our patients to consider, to help achieve their aesthetic goals.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Patients interested in undergoing a Brazilian butt lift have 2 options: injectable fillers or a surgical procedure using liposuction. Surgical butt lifts have a much more dramatic result and allow you to contour other parts of your body for natural-looking results.

How Is a Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?

People who want a more shapely backside and have unwanted areas of fat on their bodies are good candidates for a surgical Brazilian butt lift. The fat grafting technique is a 3-step process:

  • Harvesting excess fat with liposuction
  • Processing the fat to remove impurities
  • Injecting the fat into the buttocks

Dr. Rockmore can remove fat from the abdomen, back, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, and even your double chin using liposuction. After harvesting and processing the fat, Dr. Rockmore carefully injects it into the buttocks to ensure smooth and consistent results. The liposuction portion of the procedure helps contour your body, creating a slimmer appearance, while the fat grafting enhances the buttocks’ size and shape.

A surgical Brazilian butt lift usually takes about 1.5 hours and is performed in an outpatient facility under general anesthesia. Patients should anticipate 1 to 2 weeks of postsurgical downtime.

What Are the Benefits of a Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift?

This procedure offers benefits that many patients find desirable:

  • The results are much more dramatic than a nonsurgical butt lift
  • You’ll see the results almost immediately
  • It’s a great way to contour other areas of your body

We can harvest more or less fat, depending on the aesthetic goals of each patient, and using liposuction in the waist area will accentuate the results of the butt lift by making the waistline smaller. Unfortunately, patients who have a limited amount of fat on their bodies aren’t good candidates for this procedure because we need enough fat to start with in order to increase the size of your butt.

How Is a Nonsurgical Butt Lift Performed?

We are one of the only plastic surgery practices in upstate New York specializing in nonsurgical butt lifts. Using poly-L-lactic acid injections (Sculptra® Aesthetic) that help to stimulate production of new collagen naturally, we can increase the fullness of your butt, giving you the shape you desire with limited downtime.

This procedure usually takes only 10 to 15 minutes and can be performed in our office using a local anesthetic. Patients who choose nonsurgical butt lifts return to our office about 2 to 3 weeks after the initial treatment for a touch-up treatment. Results typically take several weeks to a month to see, and patients can have as many additional sessions as they would like until they get the results they desire.

What Are the Benefits of Nonsurgical Brazilian Butt Lift?

If you have limited excess fat, or if you don’t want to undergo surgery and take time off for the recovery, we recommend a nonsurgical Brazilian butt lift using injectables. We can customize the treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals, which is ideal for people who may want to start with a more conservative look. Using the injectables, we can target specific areas that you would like to enhance, such as the top portion of your butt or the sides, which helps to create a shapelier contour.

What Is Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery Like?

The recovery following a surgical Brazilian butt lift usually takes a few weeks. During the recovery process, we recommend sleeping or sitting on your side and not on your butt. You will be very bruised and sore, and you’ll need to take some time off of work. It will be about a month before you are back to your regular routine. While the recovery is longer than a nonsurgical butt lift, the results are immediate and typically are much more dramatic.

The side effects associated with a nonsurgical butt lift are limited to minor bruising, swelling, and soreness. There is no downtime, and you can leave our office and continue your daily routine, including exercising or going to work. In fact, we recommend frequent massage and activity, which will help stimulate collagen growth to enhance the shape further.
