What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
If you would like a fuller back side, a buttock augmentation might be right for you! This procedure is commonly referred to as a Brazilian butt lift and involves fat transfer from another area of the body, such as the abdomen, into the buttock. During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Swetnam or Dr. Stubbs will review the surgical process and help determine which areas of fat can be transferred to meet your desired aesthetic goals.
Brazilian Butt Lift Benefits
People considering a Brazilian butt lift can enjoy multiple benefits from the procedure, including:
- Increase fullness, roundness and profile of their buttock
- Improved balance and proportions of their figure
- Improved self-image and self-confidence
- Reduced fat pockets in the hips, abdomen and thighs
- Clothes fit better and in a more attractive manner
- Avoiding implants
How a Brazilian Butt Lift Is Performed
Some people are dissatisfied with the appearance of their buttocks, and despite a good diet and exercise, do not obtain the appearance they desire. The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is growing in popularity in the United States as it combines both liposuction and fat transfer to get the desired results. Excess fat can be removed from the abdomen, hips, lower back, love handles and even thighs with a skilled surgeon through liposuction. The fat is then transferred to improve the shape and size of the buttocks.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
While removing fat from problem areas, then transferring to buttocks to improve appearance may seem to be too good to be true, it is a great procedure for the right patients. Patient selection, proper technique and training are critical to get good results. The procedure does have risk factors like all surgeries. There are risks involved when transferring fat and this is why an experienced surgeon that makes patient safety a priority is important. Determining the right candidate is the critical first step.
Some candidates just don’t have enough excess fat to transfer and thus, are not good candidates. They typically need butt implants. When choosing implants, there are certain risks that need to be managed by your surgeon. It is important to discuss these options with your surgeon to decide what is right for you.
Buttock augmentation surgery could be right for you if you do not like the shape of your buttocks or are looking to balance your body figure. The Brazilian butt lift is a great procedure to help improve the balance of your body figure and build confidence with a buttock profile you are proud of.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
This varies based on numerous factors, including how much fat is being transferred, how many areas the fat needs to be harvested from and whether you are having other surgeries at the same time. The total cost will include the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fee, facility/OR fee, and may include other costs as well. To get a detailed estimate for your procedure, schedule a consultation with Dr. Swetnam or Dr. Stubbs.
Is fat transfer better than implants?
Both have their benefits and their drawbacks. The big appeal of fat transfer is that it takes something you already want to eliminate and puts it to good use. The result is that you don’t just have a larger butt, but also rounder hips and a slimmer stomach, waist and even back.
How do I find the best Brazilian butt lift cosmetic surgeon near me?
Start by researching cosmetic surgeons near you who offer Brazilian butt lifts and read their patient reviews. Stick to the best reviewed and browse their websites to see their before and after photos of BBL patients and look for those that align with your goals. Then schedule consultations with 2 to 3 surgeons you think will be a good fit and select the one who feels like the right person to partner with for your surgery.
What are the scars like after a Brazilian butt lift?
The only noticeable scars are usually from the liposuction step, and these are quite small. With time, they tend to fade to the point they are barely visible. The fat transfer is done using a syringe, so this step does not leave scars.
Can a Brazilian butt lift cause sagging skin?
No, it doesn’t cause skin to sag but if you already have skin laxity, adding volume can make it more pronounced. This will be discussed during your consultation so you understand how a BBL will impact your skin.
