What is Brazilian Butt Lift Plastic Surgery?

by Dr. Daniel Lin


shutterstock_189090659Brazilian butt lift has emerged as one of the popular cosmetic surgery procedures in recent years in the United States. The procedure is designed to enhance the size and shape of buttocks in a relatively less invasive way compared to butt implants. Many women are keen to achieve a more youthful and attractive buttock contour, which is made possible with this innovative surgery.

Brazilian butt lift plastic surgery not only helps achieve a more well-defined contour in the buttock area, it also increases the size, provides a lift, and improves the proportion of buttocks.

Golden, innovative, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Lin of Shine Cosmetic Surgery provides Brazilian butt lift to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar, and other towns and suburbs in California.



Brazilian butt lift will involve transfer of fat from other parts of the body where it is possible to spare extra fat. The candidate should have excess fat deposits available to perform autologous fat transfer. The candidate should ideally not be overweight or have a fluctuating body weight.

The quality of skin in the buttock area should have a fair amount of elasticity in order to achieve the best outcomes. The procedure is ideal for candidates who want to increase buttock volume without synthetic implants.



Brazilian butt lift plastic surgery involves autologous micro fat transfer, which is a delicate technique to take the patient’s own fat from other parts in their body before it is transplanted into the buttock area. The procedure is performed in two steps. In the first step, the surgeon will apply a low pressure aspiration technique to carefully liposuction the excess fat from targeted donor sites in the body.

Excess fat tissue is typically removed from the abdomen, thighs, love handles, or upper arms. Following fat removal, the purified fat is separated from the other material mixed with it. Using a completely sterile procedure, small drops of purified fat are then re-injected at multiple depths in the targeted tissue of the buttocks.

Injections are placed close to blood supply and spread throughout the targeted area for maximum absorption and more uniform and natural looking results. When the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon, the permanent survival rate of the transferred fat can be about 50 percent. Therefore, the surgeon will inject extra fat keeping in mind the final permanent fat survival.

Multiple layering of fat in a skilful manner will create smooth, more rounded buttocks with no irregular places showing through the skin. The entire procedure can take about two to four hours, depending on the amount of fat transfer required for a patient.



Recovery in case of Brazilian butt lift is similar to that of liposuction surgery. Most patients will be able to return to their normal routine or go back to work in a week or less. A compression garment will have to be worn for about a month.
