If there’s one thing that Brazilians are known for, it’s definitely their finely contoured bodies. That includes their lifted bottoms. There are a ton of reasons why you might be frustrated about your own bottom. You might have always had a flatter butt or you might have gained or lost weight leaving your bottom skin loose. As you age, you might also notice that your cheeks become asymmetrical. During a Brazilian butt lift, fat from your own body will be added to your butt to give you a lifted appearance with lots of volume.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A trendy and hip new surgery, the Brazilian butt lift has taken off in the last few years. Thanks to Kim K. and the powerful shift in mentality that more bottom is a better bottom, it’s now one of the fastest growing types of surgery. During a Brazilian butt lift, the fat is transferred from another area of the body, like the abdomen, flanks, back, or thighs and then put back in the tissue of your buttocks, a process known as fat grafting. It’s sometimes referred to as a form of buttock enhancement surgery.

Do I have choices for my Brazilian butt lift?

Though a Brazilian butt lift itself is only performed through fat grafting, there are other types of buttock enhancement surgery. The following are options you might want to explore:

  • Fat grafting - A procedure where fat is taken from one area of your body and then put back in the tissue of your butt. This provides volume for your buttocks. 
  • Buttock augmentation - A surgery where implants are added to the tissue of the butt cheeks to provide volume, a better shape and a larger size much in the same way as a breast augmentation.
  • Buttock lift - A butt lift can’t help make your butt bigger or larger but it can help tighten sagging skin and provide a lifted effect
  • check
    Liposuction - This surgery uses a vacuum-like technique to extract fat from the buttocks to aid in the shaping and contouring of the butt area.

You’ll have bruising, pain and swelling after surgery which will take a few weeks to go down. You should be able to return to normal activities within the first month of recovery. 

Results, Maintenance & Follow up

You will love the results of a Brazilian Butt Lift where you’ll find your backside more toned, shaped and full of volume. You’ll most likely have a follow-up with your doctor during your first week after surgery. Since your body will naturally absorb some of the added fat, you may see a decrease in volume as the years go by and may need to do a follow-up procedure.
