About the Brazilian Butt Lift
Plastic surgeons have developed a popular procedure, known as the Brazilian butt lift, that combines liposuction and fat transfer to create rounder, fuller buttocks to resemble the famous butts of Brazilian beaches. This innovative, very popular technique is an augmentation surgery performed by our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif. Dr. Yalif utilizes the patient’s own purified body fat taken from an area with excess fat by using liposuction instead of a silicone butt implant. At Y Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery in Atlanta, GA, we offer this more natural approach to butt augmentation for patients with excellent skin elasticity and who are in overall good health. Patients with loose skin may not be suitable candidates for this procedure; however, a butt lift to remove excess skin can be combined with the Brazilian butt lift for ideal results.
Candidates for the Brazilian butt lift get the best of both worlds with this technique as it slims other areas through fat reduction and adds sensual volume to the buttocks. Best candidates will have the following:
- Excellent skin elasticity in the buttocks area
- Have enough fatty tissue available for liposuction
- Have overall good health
- Have realistic expectations of the fat transfer
Brazilian Butt Lift Reviews
"Brazilian Butt Lift and Chin Implant - Roswell, GA - So happy that I chose to do my surgery with Dr. Yalif! My initial consultation was easy and quick to the point. Needless to say, he made me so comfortable (and excited) that I scheduled my surgery for 2 weeks later. I am still healing from both procedures but the recovery has been so easy and I already love the results - and I will only look better once I am completely healed. When I went in for my consultation I did not have an exact "view," I just knew I wanted a chin and a BBL. Dr. Y told me what he suggested but let me choose what I wanted. Jessica (staff member) was very nice and easy to work with. Her and Dr. Yalif are very quick with responses to emails and messages. Everything is perfect and I couldn't be happier with my decision!"- L. / RealSelf / Aug 14, 2016
What to Expect
The Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient procedure; however, the surgery will be performed in an accredited surgical facility (under general anesthesia) for several hours, especially if there are multiple areas of fat that are receiving liposuction. All incisions made for the Brazilian butt lift are very small, and the fat is injected in layers with a syringe. Once the procedure is complete and the patient is in the recovery room, the patient will not be able to sit or lay down on their backs for at least 2 – 3 weeks. Patients can expect to be swollen and bruised as well, but will see their beautiful results in 6 – 8 weeks.
Many patients choose a Brazilian butt lift because they want it to look and feel natural, and do not want an implant. The disadvantage to using body fat instead of an implant is that there is a higher chance that the fat may be reabsorbed into the body, deflating the fat grafting site. The surgeon will usually add more fat than the patient needs for their desired look to account for initial fat reabsorption. Patients should keep in mind that any major fluctuations in weight (gain or loss) will affect the aesthetics of the surgery.
