A shapely, perky derriere is an asset to your physique. A Brazilian butt lift in NYC uses specialized fat grafting techniques to remove excess fat from the abdomen, lower back, hips, or thighs, and transfer it to augment and enhance the buttocks. This procedure can not only create a more prominent and shapelier rear end, it can also improve the proportions of the entire lower body.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a fat transfer procedure to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks, while sculpting the lower body in the process. In a three-step procedure:

  • It uses liposuction to extract excess fat from donor areas, slimming and shaping the lower body to further enhance your curves.
  • The harvested fat is processed and purified.
  • The fat is strategically injected into multiple areas of the buttocks to add volume and create a more pleasing shape.

What is recovery like after the Brazilian butt lift?

  • Pain and discomfort after a Brazilian butt lift in New York are typically minimal and easily controlled with medications.
  • It is important to avoid sitting or lying directly on the buttocks for approximately two weeks after the procedure. You will need to sleep on your side or stomach and perform all activities either standing or lying on your stomach or side during this time.
  • After the initial two-week recovery period, you may be asked to use a “donut pillow” or place a pillow under your thighs to avoid pressure on the buttocks while sitting for another several weeks.
  • You should be able to resume light activities within one week after surgery and return to work within 10 to 14 days.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ

When will I see final results from the procedure?

Your results will be final when all residual swelling has subsided, and you are fully healed from the surgery. This typically takes three to six months. Your curvier buttocks and improved lower body proportions will become more apparent as the swelling diminishes. You will, however, see a very nice change within a few weeks of the procedure.

How long will my results last?

Brazilian butt lift results are meant to be long-lasting. The fat cells that were removed from the abdomen, hips, lower back, or thighs with liposuction are gone for good and will no longer store fat in these donor areas. The fat cells that survive transfer to the buttocks will remain and continue functioning as living fat cells for years to come. However, weight fluctuations can still affect your results. To continue looking your best, it is important to maintain a stable weight after the Brazilian butt lift in New York.
