What is the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian butt lift is a buttocks augmentation, body sculpting procedure performed with new ultrasound assisted liposuction technology. It is a minimally invasive procedure with a much shorter recovery time and far less swelling, bleeding, and bruising than traditional liposuction.
Fat is first harvested from localized fat deposits using tiny cannulas (stainless steel surgical instruments) and ultrasound waves to gently dislodge fat cells. This process does not does not destroy or damage the fat cells.
The harvested fat is purified to prepare it for transfer. This can be accomplished with centrifugation or filtration to remove impurities.
The best fat donor cells are selected from the harvested fat and then transferred to cannulas for injection. Fat is transferred to different areas of the buttocks and hips. This requires multiple injections at different depths using the same tiny cannulas used to extract the fat, augmenting and reshaping the buttocks and hips to create a larger and rounder rear end.
The Brazilian butt lift can produce a curvier derriere than buttocks augmentation implants, as the fat used for augmentation is often harvested from the waist, stomach, or back. When these areas are slimmed down with liposuction, buttocks augmentation is more pronounced, with a curvier overall effect.
As a top provider of the Brazilian butt lift Los Angeles has to offer, Dr. Sinclair can custom-tailor a Brazilian butt lift procedure to your unique anatomy. This procedure can not only augment and shape your buttocks and hips, it can also sculpt a tinier waist, flatter stomach, sleeker thighs, and shapelier back – that is the beauty of the Brazilian butt lift.
Am I a good Candidate?
As the Brazilian butt lift uses liposuction, it is not designed to treat extremely obese patients. Neither would a very thin person be a good candidate for this procedure, as he or she may not have enough donor fat supply available. The ideal candidate should be in good general health with adequate localized fat deposits to ensure enough donor fat to create rounded, prominent buttocks.
Individuals with small, flat, or asymmetrical buttocks could benefit from this procedure, as well as those who simply want a perkier, curvier derriere. This procedure could be a good option after significant weight loss that has caused the rear to lose its shape.
The buttocks are an area of the body that tends to show early signs of aging and may drop and flatten over time. The Brazilian butt lift is a good procedure to fight the effects of aging is this particular area.
Advantages over Implants include:
- The natural fat transfer procedure ensures soft, natural looking and feeling results.
- Chances of rejection are almost nil, with the patient’s own fat cells easily accepted by the body.
- Patient gets the added benefit of body sculpting in the area targeted for donor fat harvesting.
- Fat transfer creates collagen, which improves skin texture and thickness.
- The procedure causes minimal discomfort and scarring.
- Risks of complications, such as infection and wound rupturing, are reduced.
How do you prepare for a Brazilian butt lift?
- Refrain from smoking for at least one month before the procedure. Smoking decreases the survival rate of injected fat cells and increases the risk of complications.
- Avoid aspirin or any blood thinning medication unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
- Arrange a ride to and from surgery and someone to stay with you for 24 hours after the procedure.
- Have extra-soft and donut-shaped cushions available to help protect the buttocks when sitting is absolutely necessary.
- Prepare a resting area for after the surgery.
- Make a list of things that absolutely must be done while you are recovering and arrange for someone to take care of them.
What to expect after
Patients will experience some swelling and bruising after this procedure, which will subside in a few weeks. Discomfort from the surgery can be managed by taking oral pain medication.
You will see results immediately after the procedure when the buttocks will be their largest. Buttocks volume will decrease slightly as you heal. Final results will be visible after 3 months.
After a Brazilian butt lift, it is important to avoid putting pressure on your buttocks during your recovery. You will wear a compression garment (except while showering) during your entire recovery period to provide support for the buttocks. Avoid sitting or putting direct pressure on the buttocks for more than a few minutes at a time for two weeks after the surgery. Sit only when absolutely necessary using a very soft or donut shaped cushion. Sleep or rest on your stomach or side.
Avoid strenuous activities in the first two weeks after surgery, but begin taking light walks as soon as possible to reduce the risk of blood clots. Most patients can return to work in the third week after surgery. Continue using a soft cushion for sitting for five weeks after the procedure. Continue to avoid strenuous exercise for six to eight weeks after the surgery.
Will there be Scars?
Only small incisions are made in liposuction to obtain donor fat and in transferring the fat in a Brazilian butt lift. As the incisions are small, scarring is minimal. Whenever possible, Dr. Sinclair will place these small incisions so they are hidden. Incision placement will depend in part on the location of the fat deposits from which the donor fat is harvested.

While the natural aging process will have some impact on your body, you can rest assured that your new derriere will remain curvy for many years.
How Can I Minimize the Risks Associated with a Brazilian Butt Lift?

How Long Will it Take for the Swelling to go Down After my Procedure?
It is not uncommon for swelling from the liposuction associated with the Brazilian butt lift to last for several weeks. As your body begins to heal, the swelling will begin to diminish, and you should see your new, voluptuous curves begin to emerge. It can take at least twelve weeks for your post-operative swelling to completely resolve. At that time, it is appropriate for you to begin shopping for new clothes. Just imagine the wardrobe possibilities!
After How Many Weeks Can I Sit for an Extended Period of Time Without Jeopardizing my Results?
In order to allow your newly established curves to be able to settle into their proper place, it is very important that you treat your new, curvy derrière with the utmost care. Sitting on your rear end at all should be avoided for at least ten days. For several weeks, it will be necessary for you to put as little pressure as possible on your buttocks. You may achieve this objective by sitting on a donut pillow placed underneath your hamstrings, which takes the pressure away from your sensuous new backside. Placing pressure on the treatment area too soon following your procedure can be detrimental to your ultimate results.
Can a Brazilian Butt Lift be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes. The Brazilian butt lift combines liposuction with buttock augmentation, so it is essentially already two procedures wrapped in one package. Some patients, however, would like to combine additional body contouring procedures with their Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Sinclair will happily discuss which procedures will be appropriate to achieve the shapelier, more sculpted body you envision for yourself.
Where is the Best Location from Which to Remove the Donor Fat?
Each Brazilian butt lift is customized to your individual needs, so the best location for the fat used in your Brazilian butt lift will be determined after a personal consultation with Dr. Sinclair. With liposuction, fat may be harvested from many areas of the body including the abdomen, inner or outer thighs, arms, and flanks (love handles). Men and women who are already quite slender may still be candidates for a Brazilian butt lift as a large quantity of donor fat is not required to complete the Brazilian butt lift procedure. If not, implants can enhance butt size and shape.
