The Brazilian Butt Lift: New Plastic Surgery Craze


The Brazilian butt lift with fat transfer goes by many names ... buttock augmentation, buttock lift, butt lift ... they all mean the same thing. However, if you're considering this procedure, here's why you should pick fat transfer over implants.

Sean Simon, M.D., a double board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in buttock augmentation with fat transfer, is the "go-to-guy" for this procedure in South Florida. He explains the difference between implants and fat transfer.

With an implant, solid silicone implants are surgically positioned to give buttocks a new shape. The fat transfer involves performing liposuction on areas of your body with unwanted fat, such as your abdomen, inner and outer thighs, love handles, or upper and lower back. Then, your surgeon takes that fat, purifies it, and re-injects it into your buttocks to increase projection and firmness, and improve overall shape and contour.

The procedure requires skill, as the surgeon is basically sculpting not only your buttocks, but also other areas of your body to give you that sexy hourglass figure. "It's a whole body procedure," says Dr. Simon. "It changes the entire body and it proportions."

According to Dr. Simon, the fat transfer procedure is the better alternative for several reasons:

  • It's very safe, and there's a quicker recovery.
  • It has an extremely low complication rate.
  • It's much more natural looking.
  • There is no introduction of a foreign substance into the body – the patient's own fat is used – minimizing the risk of infection.
  • The patient benefits from liposuction in other parts of the body, resulting in an improved overall appearance, not just the buttocks area.

Although the procedure was born over a decade ago in Brazil, hence its name, it's become very popular, especially in Miami. Dr. Simon says the trend in Miami is "big," mainly because there is a large Latin culture that values perky, full, round buttocks and voluptuous bodies. A sexy backside is greatly desired in the Magic City. Patients are coming in asking for liposuction, and end up getting this procedure. "They don't know about it, but then realize the fat doesn't have to be thrown out and can be used for their benefit," explains Dr. Simon.

You may be a candidate if you have disproportional features, suffer from a buttock deformity from birth or trauma, have small buttocks with little or no projection, or simply would like to enhance your natural shape. The surgery requires anesthesia and Dr. Simon usually performs the procedure within three hours. You may have some swelling, redness and bruising. While infrequent, the risks are similar to liposuction – infection, bleeding, asymmetry, contour deformities, dimples, and loose skin, which depends on your skin quality. For this reason, it's important to find a plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Simon, who has extensive experience performing this procedure. Recovery varies by individual. The most difficult part is that you will be unable to sit down for about two weeks. You can lie down, and sleep in any position you want, and stand as much as you'd like. Most people may return to work after one week.
