What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure that helps to create more body curvature  by contouring the derriere. This is achieved by using both liposuction and fat grafting. Fat grafting is a procedure that transfers body fat from one area to another. In the case of the Brazilian Butt Lift, the fat removed from one area of the body is then re-injected into the buttocks.

  • Women who want to have more curvature in their backside
  • Women seeking more balanced body curves
  • Women who are seeking to reduce sagging in their backside
  • Non-Smokers
  • People in reasonably good health who have realistic expectations

Dr. Lin and Dr. Cohen-Kashi perform the Brazilian Butt Lift in Long Island, NY. During the procedure, fat will be removed from areas such as the hips, legs, and abdomen. It’s best to remove fat from areas of the body that aren’t responding well to diet and exercise. During your consultation, you can speak with Dr. Lin and Dr. Cohen-Kashi about any specific areas of the body you’d like to have liposuction performed on for the fat transfer.

The removed fat is then refined, purified, and re-injected as a filler into the buttocks. Another popular technique is to use a buttock implant. However, using fat from your own body is much safer and more natural feeling compared to other foreign materials such as silicone or saline implants.

After surgery, patients will be given a compression garment to help reduce swelling and bruising. Patients must also avoid sitting for at least two weeks. The entire recovery process is about three weeks. Most patients can return to normal activities in three weeks, but swelling can last up to three months.
