The Brazilian butt lift is a natural form of butt augmentation that helps
patients enhance the shape and size of their buttocks. This procedure utilizes
the patient’s own fat gathered from the hips, waist, abdomen, flanks and
lower back to contour the behind. Butt augmentation can also be combined
with various other procedures.
Do you want a fuller, rounder butt?
If you answered yes, then what you desire is a butt augmentation (otherwise known as a Brazilian Butt Lift) and the many physical and mental benefits that accompany the procedure.
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic buttock augmentation procedure designed to aesthetically enhance the visual appearance of a patient’s butt through the transfer of natural fat. In addition to transferring your own natural fat from target locations to the butt, this procedure also reshapes and resizes the gluteal region. The result is a soft round behind and a more contour silhouette.
For patients who are dissatisfied with the size or shape of their butt, a butt augmentation is designed to fulfill a woman’s desires of a fuller, sleeker and more defined backside. Our board certified plastic surgeons utilize this procedure in lieu of implants due to the many benefits associated with the fat transfer procedure.
A butt augmentation involves the concept of natural fat transfer to the buttocks with fat grafting technology. In contrast to buttocks implants, your own fat is soft, natural feeling and won’t shift over time like many implants tend to do. A Brazilian butt lift surgery can provide noticeable cosmetic enhancement and impressive results for your lower womanly curves.
The best candidates for this procedure are patients that have a fair amount of fat in the abdomen, hips, waist and lower back and who can commit to the postoperative recovery afterward. Many patients can be a candidate for surgery if they are physically healthy and have positive attitudes towards the recovery period. Candidates for a butt augmentation will have the result of a thin waist and tight abdomen which will look especially beautiful with a curvy bottom.
You may want to undergo this procedure after you experience drastic weight loss and desire a rounder and lifted gluteal that will help you fit better into your clothing. You might also want a butt augmentation due to the dissatisfaction of your flat, sagging, square-shaped rear end and simply desired a curvier and better-defined gluteal silhouette. This process is normal and this procedure can help boost your confidence even more.
Many patients who desire a perkier, rounder and more youthful-looking butt can benefit from the procedure. Other key factors of a good candidate are:
Patients who undergo this procedure will also receive additional benefits, both mental and physical, that accompany the
procedure results. In addition to receiving a fuller, rounder butt, a few benefits include:
There is no denying that cosmetic surgery will make you look sexier and feel healthier; however cosmetic surgery is also attributed with improving confidence and self-esteem in patients. In various surveys and studies trained clinicians found that self-esteem is directly correlated with cosmetic surgery. In fact, in a 2005 study conducted by the University of Florida, it was found that there were significant improvements in self-esteem among those who received cosmetic surgery. The study, overseen by a clinical assistant professor at the University of Florida’s College of Nursing, studied 84 women who were 21 to 57 years old, assessing their perceptions of self-esteem and sexuality before and after the cosmetic procedure. Utilizing two widely accepted scientific scales, the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and the Female Sexual Function Index, the study found that the average self-esteem score increased from 20.7 to 24.9 on the 30-point scale. The same results of significantly improved self-esteem and confidence may also occur as one of the many benefits.
A popular alternative to this procedure is butt implants, however butt implants can be very dangerous for patients. Butt implants can shift, move around or even rupture when sat upon for long lengths of time. For patients who have to sit for several hours a day at work or elsewhere, butt implants can cause a plethora of problems. If the implants shift or rupture they can cause further damage to your body including fat atrophy, cosmetic deformity and even permanent damage to your buttocks and upper thighs in some cases. Furthermore, because implants are foreign objects, the body can react poorly to the implants and an infection could result. A butt augmentation with fat transfer uses your own natural fat taken from targeted areas and transfers it to your butt. By using your fat to improve the size and shape of your butt the likelihood of an infection can be significantly lowered.
Full surgical butt lifts and butt implants, while popular cosmetic surgeries, are very invasive and often require a significant amount of downtime following the procedure. Once a patient receives a butt implant there is additional downtime to identify if the implants were properly placed and to ensure the implants do not shift around and are not rejected by the body. Full surgical butt lifts and butt implants also require larger incisions, resulting in more scarring among patients. One of the many benefits is significantly less downtime following the lift. In fact, the this procedure is much less invasive than implants and full surgical lifts.
One of the many benefits is a quicker recovery. Patients wanting a fuller, rounder butt don’t want to take weeks off work and take a back seat to life while they wait to recover. Other methods of cosmetic butt surgery require up to several months of downtime and offer a slow recovery. The recovery is often shorter, ensuring patients they can achieve their desires of an improved butt without significant downtime.
Are you sick of not being able to fit into your jeans how you desire? This procedure can help custom form your butt how you desire. With the natural improvement in size and shape you will be more able to fill out your pants how you desire.
Unlike other cosmetic surgeries, or working out at the gym for hours a week, this procedure can offer desired results in just a few hours. Dr. Kapoor often completes the quick outpatient procedure in just a few hours.
This procedure is one of the most natural forms of cosmetic butt enhancement. It employs no fillers and no implants. The procedure takes each individual patient’s own fat from focus areas and injects the fat into the buttocks. The results are an improved size and shape of your butt that feels natural.
In addition to the natural feel, patients also will receive a natural look as well. With butt implants, there is a likelihood of shifting, moving or misshaping of the implants. In fact, over time some butt implants can become misshapen and need to be replaced. Additionally, the look of butt implants are sometimes not very natural. Unlike implants, this procedure usually provides a very natural looking butt.
One of the most significant benefits is the reduction of targeted fat achieved through the cosmetic procedure. This procedure utilizes liposuction, allowing patients to undergo aesthetic fat reduction of the abdominal area. The fat removed from the stomach is transferred to the butt, resulting in a reduction of love handles and stomach flab, and an improvement in butt size and shape.

This procedure is almost always an outpatient procedure, meaning that the patient can go home the same day as the surgery, with no hospital stay required. It is recommended that patients abstain from sitting for extended periods of time. There will be some
bruising and swelling which will resolve over time and pain medication will be administered by Dr. Kapoor.
Do not drink alcohol for one week before and after the procedure. In addition, stop taking any products containing aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, vitamin E, or herbal supplements. Tylenol is acceptable. Refrain from all nicotine products, including cigarettes, pipe tobacco, chew or Nicotine patch. Nicotine interferes with healthy circulation and may affect the result of your operation. It also places you at higher risk of complication when receiving anesthesia. DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING AFTER MIDNIGHT (This includes water and gum chewing). A fasting state is required in order to receive sedation for a butt augmentation. The only exception is medication, which we instruct you to take with a sip of water the morning of surgery.
Do not wear makeup, hairspray, gels, or any kind of jewelry or nail polish to your procedure. You may leave acrylic nails on. Instead, prepare for a Brazilian butt lift with loose fitting clothing. If you have your menstrual cycle, please wear a feminine napkin. Do not wear a tampon. Wear the style of panty or bathing suit bottom that you will be wearing after you recover from your surgery. This is necessary in order for Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker to place as much of your incision within your panty line as possible.
Immediately after the procedure, you will be transferred to the Post Anesthesia Care Unit where you will be monitored closely for approximately 1-2 hours. Pain medications and breathing treatments will be administered as needed. You will have to wear a compression garment for several weeks. Initial healing may take between 5 to 10 days. During this time, it is advised not to engage in any vigorous exercise or activity such as heavy lifting within 4 to 6 weeks after your surgery to avoid bleeding complications.
