What is a buttocks lift?
A buttock lift, often referred to as a “Brazilian Butt Lift,” is a procedure that lifts the buttocks by adding fat to the area to accentuate it. Patients are treated with liposuction; the fat removed by liposuction from your own body is prepared in the operating room and then transferred to your buttocks. The fat added to your buttock will make it fuller, rounder, and lifted.
Who is a candidate for a buttocks lift?
Anyone who is interested in a fuller, rounder, and lifted buttock, and is in good health may be a candidate for a buttock lift. Patients must have enough fat amenable to liposuction; people cannot donate fat to someone else’s buttocks lift.

A buttocks lift will:
- Change your figure balance to enhance the buttocks
- Lift the buttocks and achieve a rounded
- Improve the way you look in pants, skirts, and dresses
Recovery and results
A buttock lift is generally a day surgical procedure; if it is combined with other procedures, patients will occasionally stay overnight. The most important part of recovery is minimizing the pressure on the transferred fat for three weeks. Patients should sleep on their stomach during this time and avoid sitting directly on the areas that have had fat transferred. Patients are up and walking the evening of surgery and return to routine activities within seven to ten days after the surgery. The swelling will increase for approximately three days after surgery and not all the transferred fat will ultimately survive. You will see the final volume of the buttock approximately four to six weeks after the surgery. You will see near final results in the areas treated with liposuction approximately six weeks after surgery, although these areas will continue subtle improvement for up to six months after surgery.
