The Procedure

A Brazilian butt lift involves extracting fat from one area such as the abdomen or thighs and injecting it into the upper portion of the buttocks. The fat transfer procedure is a safe, effective method of using a natural filler — your own fatty tissue — for cosmetic enhancement. During the first part of the procedure, Dr. Hoffman, who specializes in liposuction and other body contouring surgeries, suctions fat from the area of your body that you would like toned. This surgical plan is determined during your consultation, and it can also include other procedures that Dr. Hoffman can perform simultaneously.

Dr. Hoffman often uses the Body-Jet® liposuction technique for fat transfer procedures because it does not damage the fatty tissue. The fat is purified before it is gradually injected into the buttocks with a syringe. A good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift needs enough excess fat to use for augmentation and should be in good overall health with isolated pockets of fat.

Results and Recovery

Because some of the fat used in fat transfer procedures is reabsorbed by the body, the initial amount of fat used in a butt lift may appear to be too much. The amount of fat reabsorbed varies from patient to patient, and this process takes a couple of months as swelling decreases. Once your final results develop, your buttocks appear rounder on the upper portion and feel and look natural.

Recovery following a Brazilian butt lift usually takes about a week, although Dr. Hoffman advises patients to avoid sitting for long periods for at least 2 weeks. Patients wear compression garments for about a week to ensure optimal results. Depending on the extent of the liposuction procedure, patients can usually resume exercising about 2 to 3 weeks after surgery.
