A shapely, full booty is one of today's most coveted physical features. But few of us are born with this feature. With a Brazilian butt lift, the size, shape and fullness of your butt can be enhanced with optimally natural-looking results. This innovative technique uses your own fat cells instead of butt implants. Men and women alike who want better balance and proportion of their upper and lower body are good candidates for our butt lift procedure. Please call Manhattan Surgical Care at 212-308-1566 to schedule a consultation with experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Basil Pakeman.
Natural Butt Augmentation with Fat Injections
Using liposuction, the Brazilian butt lift technique takes fat from areas where you don't want it – such as your tummy, waist, back or thighs – and transplants the fat into the buttocks area. The unique advantage of this technique is that it slims an area of excess fat. Many women choose to take the fat from their tummy and waist area, resulting in an attractive and natural profile with curves in all the right places. Men can also transplant fat from the belly area, or anywhere else where pockets of fat exist.
The advantages of choosing a Brazilian butt lift instead of butt implants are:
- The results are more natural and attractive.
- The incisions used in the procedure are smaller, resulting in minimal scarring.
- Recovery from a Brazilian butt lift is faster.
- Added slenderizing benefit of liposuction.
- Chance of butt implant rejection is eliminated.
Most people who want a shapelier butt are good candidates for this technique, although you may be better suited to butt implants if you do not have sufficient fat to transfer to the buttocks area.

Is a Butt Lift right for You?
It's not uncommon to notice physical changes in the size and shape of your buttocks over time. These changes may be caused by:
- Weight gain
- Weight loss
Both men and women alike may be unhappy with a sagging, flat or poorly shaped booty. For women particularly, the butt lift procedure is a great way to create beautiful body proportions. Having an attractive butt is about having balance between shape, size and contour in proportion to the rest of your body. Many women who have breast augmentation can also benefit from butt augmentation to create ideal balance between the upper and lower body. Liposuction in the Brazilian butt lift further enhances the hourglass shape.
Frequently Asked Questions (Brazilian Butt Lift)
Q: What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A: A buttocks augmentation procedure is whereby fat is transferred from an area of excess of the body to enhance or enlarge the buttocks to create a rounder and shapelier rear end.
Q: Who are good candidates for the Brazilian Buttock Lift?
A: Men or women with flat or poorly developed buttocks with sufficient fat in other areas of their body are generally excellent candidates for buttocks enlargement. Male or female buttock implants maybe considered for individuals with insufficient body fat.
Q: Where does the fat come from for the butt lift?
A: The fat is generally taken for the hips, flanks, abdomen and lower back for buttock enhancement.
Q: How long does fat survive in a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A: The fat injections can potentially last a lifetime once it receives good blood supply at its new location in the buttocks.
Q: How much fat is needed in a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A: This will depend on the amount of correction desired.
Q: What are the risks and complications associated with a Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?
A: The risks are minimal and quite similar to those of liposuction. As with any surgeries, there is always risk of infection, bleeding, and scarring. There is a 30% chance of fat re-absorption in butt enhancement. Risks will vary depending on the patient.
Q: Will follow-up visits be needed after the Brazilian Butt Lift?
A: Yes, the amount of visits needed will vary with each patient.
Q: What is the recovery time for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A: Most patients can return to a desk job within one week. Returning to full activity levels also varies case by case, but usually this occurs in 2-3 weeks. The Brazilian Buttock Lift has a shorter recovery period than butt implant surgery. You must wear a special garment (to control swelling) for two weeks.
Q: What is the cost of the Brazilian Butt Lift?
A: The cost will vary depending on the amount of fat transfer needed. Please call our office for a quote.
