The Brazilian Buttlift has become one of the most popular procedures in my practice. I think that some of this is celebrity driven given the tremendous influence of kim kardashian, beyonce, nicki minaj, and jennifer lopez among others. I perform several hundred of these procedures each year, and the numbers per year have continued to grow for the last few years.
The procedure involves liposuctioning or taking fat out of the areas like the tummy, sides, or back and transferring or grafting the fat to buttocks and hips to produce dramatic changes in shape. Almost any area of the body can be liposuctioned – the arms, the bra rolls, the inner and outer thighs. The procedure can be combined with tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, mommy makeover, and many other surgeries in healthy patients who are appropriate candidates.
I generally use 3 tiny incisions to remove up to 5 liters of fat and transfer up to 2000 cc or more buttock and up to about 400 cc per hip.
I can achieve very dramatic transformations in most individuals, even in patients who are considered too thin. For those patients who prefer buttock implants, I place these as well on a regular basis. I will use whatever options available to produce the best result for butt enlargement for each patient.
