Achieve a Perkier Backside with a Brazilian Butt Lift
During a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Ken Smart will use excess fat harvested from another area of the patient’s body to lift and increase volume in the buttocks. This popular body contouring procedure performed at our certified surgical center is designed to create a shapelier and more attractive silhouette. Since it uses fat from your own body, a Brazilian butt lift can often provide more natural-looking and feeling results compared to a traditional butt augmentation that uses implants. Dr. Smart will meet with you during an initial consultation at our Frisco, TX, office to discuss your cosmetic goals and determine whether the procedure is right for you.
Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Butt Augmentation
Whereas a traditional butt augmentation uses implants to enhance your backside, a Brazilian butt lift removes fat through liposuction from another area of your body, such as the thighs, abdomen, or hips to add volume to your buttocks. With the ever-growing trend of fuller buttocks being set as the aesthetic standard by celebrities and others, Brazilian butt lift is quickly becoming a commonly requested and performed procedure at our practice.
Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates
The best candidates for a Brazilian butt lift should be in good overall health, not smoke or drink excessively, and have realistic expectations. To qualify for this procedure, it is important to be in a normal weight range but with an adequate amount of excess fat in another area of the body to be used for the butt lift. You may benefit from this procedure if are desiring a more voluptuous figure and frustrated with having a:
- Flat buttocks
- Sagging backside
- Small buttocks
- Disproportionate buttocks
What to Expect During the Procedure
Before undergoing the procedure, Dr. Smart will perform a detailed physical examination to ensure you have the right body type and a sufficient amount of excess fat for the fat transfer. Patients with excess skin or fat in their buttocks may benefit more from a traditional butt augmentation. He will also review your medical history and any presurgical and postsurgical instructions to follow to ensure you achieve the best results possible.

During this procedure, Dr. Smart will first administer anesthesia, then use liposuction to remove excess fat from either your thighs, abdomen, or hips. In order to obtain the purest form, he will then filter the fat using centrifuge technology.
Dr. Smart will make small, discreet incisions in your buttocks and insert the purified fat using very precise techniques. As a result, Brazilian butt lift is less invasive and often provides more natural-looking results compared to a traditional butt augmentation. For patients with enough excess fat, Dr. Smart can also perform a follow-up fat transfer to achieve a more dramatic look.
Recovery and Results
Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Smart will close the incisions and apply bandages and compression garments to minimize swelling. Immediately following surgery, you will experience some swelling, discomfort, and discoloration where the fat was harvested. You will need to have someone available to drive you home and stay with you for the first few days.
Following your postsurgical instructions will prevent complications from developing and help you heal quickly. These instructions will include:
- Proper care of the surgical sites
- Wearing your compression garment
- Taking medications as prescribed
- Activities to avoid
- How to sit and stand properly so as not to disrupt incisions or results
- Resting and hydrating
Most patients can expect to return to work two to three weeks after the procedure and all other normal activity six to eight weeks after. However, it is important to remember that you cannot sit directly on your buttocks for at least eight weeks. Using an inflatable pillow can help ease pressure and prevent disruption of the fat transfer. Although you will notice an immediate difference within a week of surgery, as swelling fades and the fat transfer stabilizes, you will be able to enjoy final results within six to 12 months.
