Even with proper diet and exercise, it can be difficult to achieve your ideal body. You may notice that it can be impossible to lose weight in the areas of your body you are unhappy with or create the shapely assets you want. The Brazilian Butt Lift is a fat grafting technique that uses fat injections to sculpt and enhance the buttocks. This procedure helps patients achieve their ideal look by combining liposuction with butt augmentation.
Targeted fat removal is never easy, and you usually end up losing volume in areas you don’t want first (such as the buttocks). With a Brazilian Butt Lift, stubborn fat is removed from unwanted areas and injected into the butt to create an hourglass figure. The Brazilian Butt Lift works to provide patients with the contoured body shapes they have always wanted.
Stubborn, hard-to-remove fat is frustrating and discouraging for many people. The Brazilian Butt Lift reduces fat from unwanted areas, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, and injects it in areas needing a little more volume. This helps create a slimmer appearance, improving the patient’s overall self-confidence.
You may notice that even with proper diet and exercise, it can be impossible to get rid of cellulite. While a Brazilian Butt Lift will not remove cellulite from the buttocks, it may diminish its look. Additional fat is injected into sagging areas of the buttocks to create a firmer, fuller backside. This may minimize the visibility of cellulite dimples.
Since a Brazilian Butt Lift is a personalized procedure, a consultation is crucial in achieving your ideal body. During your consultation, Dr. Bridges will address your concerns and goals for the procedure. He will also perform a physical exam to ensure that you are the right candidate. Since the Brazilian Butt Lift is a fat transfer procedure, it is required that you have adequate fat stores to harvest elsewhere on your body.
After the assessment, Dr. Bridges will create a personalized surgical plan built around your specific needs. Our patient coordinator will then go over the price for the procedure based on the techniques used.
Your Brazilian Butt Lift with fat injection is performed under general anesthesia to ensure that you will not feel any pain during the procedure.
A series of micro-incisions are made in the areas where fat is being removed to avoid large, noticeable scars. After the incisions are made, fat is extracted from unwanted areas, commonly the thighs, hips, lower back, and abdomen. Dr. Bridges will then purify the extracted fat and prepare for the transfer.
Fat is then injected into various areas of the buttocks using a syringe.
You may be swollen and bruised for several weeks after your Brazilian Butt Lift. You will be asked to sleep on your side or stomach to avoid sitting on your butt for the first two weeks. You will not be able to place any direct pressure on your buttocks during this time—this includes sitting upright.
You will also want to avoid strenuous activity for at least six to eight weeks. Recovery from Brazilian Butt Lift with fat injections is different for everyone. It is important to talk to your surgeon regarding the best ways to recover based on your specific situation.
A Brazilian Butt Lift avoids large scars by creating a series of micro-incisions in the fat harvesting sites. Scars can be easily concealed and often fade with time.
General anesthesia will be used during surgery to ensure your comfort. Pain during recovery can be combated with prescription medication as needed.
Results from a Brazilian Butt Lift with fat injection are visible immediately; however, they are expected to change with time. The body will absorb some of the transferred fat. Therefore, Dr. Bridges will transfer a higher volume of fat than is desired for your final results. These results will continue to improve for up to six months following surgery.

Since your Brazilian Butt Lift is personalized to you, the cost will vary. Your Brazilian Butt Lift cost will depend on the techniques used during the procedure and facility, surgeon, and anesthesia fees.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Bridges to receive a detailed financial plan based on your specific needs.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a generally safe procedure when performed by a board-certified surgeon, such as Dr. Bridges. However, there are risks with any surgery. These risks include:
Since the Brazilian Butt Lift is performed under general anesthesia, you cannot drive yourself home. You will need to bring a responsible adult with you to your appointment to drive you home and assist with your recovery.
The results of a Brazilian Butt Lift are meant to be long lasting. However, natural aging and weight fluctuation can alter your results over time. It is important to maintain your weight to keep your results looking fresh and new longer.
