Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ

Answers to All of Your Brazilian Butt Lift Questions

Using our NuBody Fat Transfer technique, our surgeons perform a Brazilian Butt Lift using your own natural fat to plump up your buttocks rather than implants. If you can’t find the answer to your Brazilian Butt Lift question below, please contact us to set up a personal consultation or to ask us any additional questions.

I've heard about butt lifts with implants. Why don't you use them for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Implants can carry the risk of infection and other complications, and particularly in the buttocks may cause discomfort. This is why we prefer to use NuBody Fat Transfer when performing butt lift procedures. In addition, fat transfer allows more flexibility to shape and contour your buttocks exactly the way you want—leading to more personalized, natural-looking results.

What kind of results can I expect from a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Individual results will depend on many factors, including the amount of fat available from the donor site and the amount of desired volume increase. Immediately after surgery you will notice a larger buttocks. This increase in size has to do with two main factors: The fatty tissue now present in its new environment causing permanent change and some swelling in the treated areas. Your doctor will discuss expectations and individual circumstances with you before your procedure.

How long before I can return to normal activities after a butt lift procedure?

With the NuBody Brazilian Butt Lift, there is no need for general anesthesia or stitches, so you’ll be able to return home shortly after the procedure is completed. You may be mildly sore following the procedure; however, you could potentially return to work the next day and return to normal activities by week 4.

When is a Brazilian Butt Lift not recommended?

The success of the fat transfer procedure is dependent on the amount of available fat from the donor site—typically the upper legs, hips, and lower back. Depending on the shape of your legs and the surrounding areas as well as the desired volume of your buttocks, you may not have enough fat reserves to make the procedure work. In this case, butt implants may be a better alternative.
