Brazilian Butt Lift

Home » Body » Brazilian Butt Lift

Even after spending hours at the gym daily doing squats, achieving a shapely, full behind can seem impossible. Often, the models, actresses, and singers we idolize for their shape have benefitted from the volumizing and sculpting power of the Brazilian Butt Lift. The popularity of this procedure is growing every year, and for good reason, because the results look and feel natural while offering minor to dramatic improvements in the shape of your derriere.

What Is A
Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a buttock enhancement procedure that uses your own natural fat harvested from problem areas to add shape, volume, and lift to your derriere. By using your own fat from elsewhere on your body, the results both look and feel natural, improving volume and shape in the buttocks while reducing stubborn fat deposits in the areas we often want to slim and tone, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, or lower back.

Not only does this give your entire body a more sculpted look, but it also provides a visually appealing framework for your new, fuller buttocks. Unlike other surgical options, Brazilian Butt Lifts are also minimally invasive, requiring only a few tiny, inconspicuous incisions to allow room for the specialized device to access the fat.

Brazilian Butt Lift Treats:

  • Flat or sagging buttocks
  • Insufficient buttock volume
  • Asymmetrical buttocks
  • Unwanted fat in the abdomen, thighs, hips, or lower back
  • Low self-confidence due to buttock appearance
  • The desire for a curvier, more youthful silhouette

Advantages of Brazilian Butt Lift:

  • Uses your own natural fat for augmentation
  • Provides a natural-looking and feeling result
  • Simultaneously slims and tones problem areas
  • Minimally invasive procedure with small, discreet incisions
  • Reduces the need for synthetic implants
  • Enhances overall body proportions and silhouette
  • Less downtime and quicker recovery compared to traditional surgery
  • Customizable to meet individual aesthetic goals
  • Boosts self-esteem and body confidence
  • Long-lasting results with proper aftercare

Patient Testimonial

Impressed is an understatement. I received nothing but kindness, understanding, validation and was ACTUALLY listened to. So grateful to Dr Blanchard and his staff.


The Ideal Candidates for Brazilian Butt Lift Include:

  • Individuals with flat or sagging buttocks seeking enhancement
  • Those looking to increase buttock volume naturally
  • Individuals with excess fat in areas like the abdomen, thighs, hips, or lower back
  • People desiring a more balanced and sculpted figure
  • Those who prefer a natural-looking augmentation over synthetic implants
  • Those with good overall physical and mental health
  • Individuals with enough excess fat for the procedure
  • Those with realistic expectations for the outcome

Am I a Candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift?

Many individuals have a desire to add volume and a more shapely contour to their buttocks, and even more, wouldn’t mind shedding a small amount of fat from a troublesome spot at the same time! Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery is for those patients who desire a more full, hourglass figure.

However, not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure. Because Brazilian Butt Lifts require the use of fat from elsewhere on the body, it is only recommended for those individuals that have an area on their body with enough fat to be harvested for the procedure, especially because the process of purifying the fat before injection requires that more fat be removed than will ultimately be reinjected via the buttocks.

As such, particularly slim patients with very little body fat may not be eligible for this procedure.

That said, the only true way to determine if a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is right for you is to speak with one of our board-certified surgeons in Hampton Roads. If you’re in the Newport News or Williamsburg areas, contact our office. We’d love to speak with you about your options and answer any questions or concerns you may have about this procedure.

Brazilian Butt Lift in Hampton Roads

To achieve these amazing results, your surgeon will make tiny, inconspicuous incisions in the pre-selected area from which the fat is to be harvested, often the abdomen, thighs, hips, or lower back. This helps improve your result by providing a visually appealing framework for your new derriere. Once the incisions have been placed, your surgeon will use a tool called a cannula to remove the fat, using liposuction techniques to remove fat and sculpt the area.

After enough fat has been removed, it will undergo a special purification process to cleanse the fat and prepare it for reinjection. Your surgeon will then inject the purified fat into the soft tissues within your buttocks in a specialized pattern designed to provide the desired shape and volume. After your procedure, you will notice an immediate improvement in the fullness of your buttocks.

As an added benefit, most patients report very little, if any, discomfort at the injection site. However, you may experience soreness and swelling in the areas where the fat was harvested. For about a week or two after surgery, you will be required to wear a special compression garment to promote healing and ensure long-lasting results. While we recommend sitting on a pillow or “doughnut” for a few weeks to avoid pressure or discomfort, you should be able to return to normal activity within a few days and can return to work within the first two weeks.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery Guidelines:

  • Avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for at least two weeks.
  • Use a pillow or “doughnut” while sitting down to avoid pressure.
  • Continuously wear the prescribed compression garments to reduce swelling.
  • Drink ample water to facilitate healing and maintain skin elasticity.
  • Avoid strenuous exercises and activities for a few weeks.
  • Take prescribed medications and follow the surgeon’s instructions.
  • Steer clear of smoking and alcohol to aid in the recovery process.
  • Attend scheduled follow-up appointments with your surgeon.
  • Keep an eye on incisions for signs of infection or complications.
  • Maintain a balanced diet to support healing and minimize weight fluctuations.
  • Protect the treated areas from direct sunlight.
  • Keep an open line of communication with your surgeon for any concerns or questions.
