A Brazilian butt lift is also known as “buttock augmentation” or “buttock re-shaping”. This fat transfer procedure harvests excess fat from other areas of the body with liposuction, then transfers it to the buttocks to increase volume and shape. A Brazilian butt lift in Houston has the added benefit of slimming the area where the fat was removed (usually the love handles, thighs, or the abdomen) while augmenting the buttocks to enhance curves. 

Who can benefit from a Brazilian butt lift?

Volume loss in the buttocks is a normal part of aging. A Brazilian butt lift may be a good treatment option if you want to add volume to your buttocks with long-lasting results, or if you want to create a rounder, more lifted look. You will have firmer, more raised buttocks after the procedure. The added benefit of a Brazilian butt lift in Houston is that liposuction is performed in other areas of the body. This re-sculpting factor gives your body a more defined contour that will nicely compliment your enhanced buttocks.

Before & After

What can I expect with Brazilian butt lift surgery?

Our Houston butt augmentation procedure is typically performed in an outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia. You can expect to return home the same day. The procedure takes three to five hours to complete. First, liposuction is performed to obtain the fat for transfer to the buttocks (see our liposuction page for details).

The harvested fat is then prepared for injection, and small incisions are placed in well-hidden areas around the buttocks. The fat is transferred through these incisions to enhance and reshape the buttocks, and the incisions are then closed.

What is recovery like after a Brazilian butt lift?

When you wake up from your fat transfer butt lift in Houston, you will be wearing a compression garment. You will wear this garment for six to eight weeks to help prevent fluid accumulation in the buttocks and the areas where liposuction was performed. You will have a prescription for pain medication, and antibiotics may also be prescribed. Fluid leaking from liposuction incisions is normal for the first several days. You can expect some swelling, bruising, and pain, particularly in the buttocks area. You will not be allowed to sit on your buttocks for the first ten days, except for sitting on the toilet.

While sleeping, you will need to lie only on your side or your stomach. After ten days, you will be allowed to sit, but will need to place a pillow underneath your upper leg (hamstring). You will be allowed to finally sit directly on your buttocks after about eight weeks. 

Your first follow-up appointment will be between five and seven days after surgery. Sutures typically do not need to be removed. Most patients can return to light-duty work in 10 to 14 days. You can expect to return to full activity and exercise in eight weeks after a Brazilian butt lift.

Smokers should stop smoking two months before surgery. Also, any medications that can increase the chances of bleeding should be stopped at least two weeks before butt lift surgery, with approval from the prescribing doctor.
