The buttock region is one of the most characteristic parts of the female body.

A thin waist and a steep, tight hips are desire for every woman.

It is noteworthy that in some geographies, especially in Latin America, the butt / waist ratio is quite high.

In recent years, the number of our patients who want to have the “Brazilian Butt” is also increasing.

In a woman with a thick waist, it is more attractive to thin the waist region while enlarging the butt.

There are three main ways of shaping the buttock area;

* Fat Injection

* Butt Implants

* Surgical Butt Lifting


A Brazilian butt lift can be a great option to improve the shape and size of the buttocks; however, certain patients are better suited to the procedure, and it is important to have realistic expectations about the surgery, recovery, and results. In general, you are likely a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift if you agree with the following:

  • You want a buttock augmentation without implants
  • You have good skin tone in the hips and buttocks
  • You have adequate fat stores in other areas to harvest for injection into the buttocks
  • You are willing and able to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for several weeks

BBL with Fat Transfer

Brazilian butt lift involves three basic steps:

  1. Fat is removed from the hips, lower back, thighs, abdomen, and/or other areas with liposuction
  2. The extracted fat is purified and prepared for transfer
  3. The cosmetic surgeon injects fat into specific points on the buttocks to increase volume and improve shape

Brazilian butt lift with buttock implants

One significant advantage of Brazilian butt lift surgery is that it increases buttock size without implants. In the hands of a specially trained cosmetic surgeon who operates in an accredited facility, the procedure has a low risk for complications and can achieve remarkably natural looking and feeling results.

However, if you are very lean, you may not have enough fat to harvest, and buttock implants may be the only way to achieve your desired size increase. Buttock implants may be a good option for some patients; however, it is important to understand the added risks of having implants, including capsular contracture and a higher risk for infection. Buttock implants can also look and feel less natural compared to a skillfully performed Brazilian butt lift.


Having an operation on the buttocks requires some special modifications during recovery. While pain is typically minimal and easily controlled through pain medication, you will not be allowed to sit or lie directly on your buttocks for about 2 weeks after a Brazilian butt lift.

During this time, you will need to sleep on your stomach or side, and either lie this way or stand for all activity except using the toilet. When you are ready, your cosmetic surgeon will allow you to sit in a modified position, using a “donut” seat or placing a pillow under your thighs to avoid pressure on the buttocks. Normal sitting activity is typically allowed after 8 weeks or so.

Given you follow your cosmetic surgeon’s instructions, you should be able to resume light daily activities within 1 week after surgery and return to work within 10 to 14 days.
