Brazilian Butt Lift.


Enhance your shape!

Whether you’re simply unhappy with the appearance of your buttocks or have lost some of your silhouette with age, Brazilian Butt Lift at Plastic Surgery of Westchester may be an option for you. A Brazilian Butt Lift combines the benefit of liposuction with the safe and effective technique of fat transfer to augment the buttock shape and projection. Any area of the body, including the arms, abdomen, hips, back or thighs can be liposculpted and provide fat for transfer.

For the best, most-lasting results, we use traditional liposuction and gentile filtering techniques. Brazilian Butt Lift can also be an adjunct to other procedures, such as a “tummy-tuck” or breast augmentation. The surgeons at Plastic Surgery of Westchester can help you decide on the best procedures and appropriate timing for your procedures.

What to Expect

Brazilian Butt Lift Pre-operative:

  1. The surgeons at Plastic Surgery of Westchester are going to ensure that you are medically- optimized prior to undergoing Brazilian Butt Lift.
  2. You should be at a stable weight for approximately 3 months prior to surgery.
  3. Please give your surgeons a list of your medications and insight into any pre-existing medical conditions (don’t forget about a history of heart or lung problems, autoimmune diseases, wound healing problems, blood clots, or bleeding disorders).
  4. Vitamins and anti-inflammatory medications (such as aspirin, Motrin, Advil, and Aleve, etc.) should be discontinued no less than 1 week prior to surgery.
  5. We hope that you don’t smoke! Please refrain from any nicotine or tobacco use (including patches, gum and vapor cigarettes) for no less than 4 weeks prior and 4 weeks after your surgery. Remember, any history of smoking can increase your risk for certain complications, such as wound healing problems and infection.

Brazilian Butt Lift Post-operative:

  1. Most patients find immediate satisfaction after Brazilian Butt Lift; however, there is a period of swelling which resolves over a few weeks. Time for healing varies among patients, but the average patient benefits from up to two weeks of dedicated recovery.
  2. For the best results, you will be asked to refrain from sitting or lying on your buttocks for 4 weeks and will wear a compression garment for a total of 8 to 12 weeks post-operatively.
  3. When you are better healed, your surgeon will discuss and demonstrate massage and scar care techniques to keep your results looking fabulous!
  4. As always, please bring a list of your questions and concerns to your pre-operative visits. It is important to understand your overall health and expectations in order to individualize your treatment plan.

Brazilian Butt Lift Before & After


Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs

Am I a candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Anyone who is interested in enhancing the shape and contour of their buttocks and who would also like to eliminate fat from other target areas such as abdomen, hips, thighs or back is ideal. Best candidates are in good health and have enough fat in localized areas to achieve their desired shape.

How do I prepare for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Refrain from smoking and all other nicotine-containing products for at least 4 weeks prior to surgery. You must also avoid any non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory medications (Advil, Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve and etc.) for 1 week prior to surgery. Significant weight changes should also be avoided.

Where will my procedure be performed?

For most patients, this procedure can be performed in our AAAASF accredited surgical suite. You will be able to go home the same day with a chaperone.

How is a Brazilian Butt Lift performed?

Traditional liposuction to remove unwanted fat from areas such as the chin, arms, abdomen, hips, thighs or back is performed. This fat is then gently filtered and then prepared for injection. Small cannulas are used for both harvesting and reinjection, thereby keeping the surgical scars hidden and minimal in size.

What results can I expect?

You will notice an immediate difference and overall improvement; however the initial swelling and bruising may take 2-3 weeks to resolve. The final result can be seen within 2-3 months and can be lasting with weight maintenance.

What is involved in recovery?

You will wear a compression garment post-operative, covering all areas treated for 8-12 weeks. You will also avoid direct pressure on the buttocks for 4 weeks.

Is there anything to do to minimize swelling or bruising?

Consistent use of the compression garment can reduce swelling. Arnica, an herbal supplements sold in most health food stores, can also help reduce swelling and bruising. In some case, your surgeon may recommend a post-operative massage therapy.
