What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic procedure that can treat a flat or sagging backside with minimal downtime. Butt lifts provide instant fullness and volume to the buttocks using excess fat in the thighs, abdomen and/or hips through liposuction. The Brazilian Butt Lift contours flat buttocks, re-shapes the buttocks, and creates projection, if desired. The end results give an overall uplifted look to the entire backside that looks attractive and natural compared with gluteal, aka buttock implants.

What Is the difference between a Brazilian Butt Lift and Butt Implants?
Butt Lifts use a patient’s own body fat to create their desired shape. A more natural look and feel is much easier to achieve using a patient’s own fat rather than implants. A Brazilian Butt Lift also may have a lowered risk of infection since the patient’s own body tissue is used for the procedure, allowing a quicker recovery time.

The recovery time for the Brazilian Butt Lift ranges in time on a patient by patient basis, but many happy clients have returned to their desk jobs within a week’s time. In some cases, this recovery time can last longer, but butt lift patients can expect to return to moderate activity within 3 to 4 weeks.
How long will my Butt Lift last?
The normal estimate for the results that you will see from your Brazilian Butt Lift is up to 20 years. While a portion of the fat injected is naturally absorbed back into the body, a portion stays and remains permanent. Natural aging will change the shape of anyone’s body of many years, of course, and results are best maintained by keeping a stable and healthy body weight. Dramatic weight gains or losses may affect the shape and feel of your butt lift procedure in the future. Smokers tend to re-absorb/lose more of the fat that was injected during fat grafting vs. those who do not smoke.

Risks are something you should discuss with any surgeon prior to having surgery. Having your surgery performed by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, as are all the surgeons at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery, helps minimize the risks. Any surgical procedure involves some risk, but this also depends on the health and lifestyle of the patient.
