Brazilian Butt Lift

Aging, genetics, pregnancy, weight loss, and weight gain can all affect the shape of the buttocks, resulting in a flat or saggy appearance.

A Brazilian butt lift uses liposuction to transfer fat and give patients a fuller, rounder backside and improve contours.

Frisco Plastic Surgery & MedSpa in Frisco, TX, can improve your silhouette with this popular procedure that avoids artificial implants.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that uses fat from a patient's thighs, abdomen, hips, or lower back to round out the buttocks, give them a more lifted appearance, and increase volume. Since this popular body contouring technique uses fat from the patient's body, it can often provide more natural-looking and feeling augmentation than a traditional butt lift that uses implants.

Who Can Benefit From
a Brazilian Butt Lift?

You could benefit from a Brazilian butt lift if you want a more voluptuous backside and are frustrated with having a backside that is:

  • Flat
  • Square
  • Small
  • Disproportionate
  • Sagging

Since the Brazilian butt lift is a combination procedure that uses both liposuction and a butt lift, it can naturally be combined with other procedures such as a tummy tuck and thigh lift, depending on where the fat used in your butt lift is from.


Dr. Ken Smart is a board-certified plastic surgeon who can provide patients with a butt lift, a commonly requested procedure at our certified surgical center. This natural approach to augmentation can help patients feel more comfortable in their bodies.

If you're in Plano, Frisco, or the North Dallas area, and think you could benefit from a Brazilian butt lift, we invite you to fill out our contact form or call our Frisco, TX, office:

What if I’m Too Slim For a Fat Transfer?

Some thin patients don't have enough excess body fat to create the desired volume with a Brazilian butt lift. However, Dr. Smart also performs traditional butt lifts using implants that will give you the rounded contour you are looking for.

Dr. Smart is amazing. I can’t tell you how happy I am with my results. I went to him after having my children to get my breasts redone, and I look like I’m 20 again. (I’m 42 now.) He and his entire staff are great. When I had questions during recovery they were always available. Dr. Smart even came in on a Sunday for my follow up. He says he prefers to schedule on the weekend for follow ups so that he can take his time with the patients since he’s so busy during the week. That says a lot about a doctor.

Exploring Candidacy for Brazilian Butt Lift

The best candidates for a Brazilian butt lift are people who are:

In Good Overall Health

Patients who want to undergo any kind of elective surgery must be in good overall health and not use nicotine products so they can heal properly after their surgery.

In a Normal Weight Range

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 like the tummy or thighs to be used for the butt lift.

Realistic in Their Expectations

A Brazilian butt lift will provide you with a rounder backside and a slimmer, more sculpted silhouette, but it may not perfect your entire figure.

Can A Brazilian Butt Lift Produce Satisfying Results?

Your Cosmetic Consultation

Dr. Smart will meet with you during an initial consultation for a butt augmentation at our Frisco office, Frisco Plastic Surgery & MedSpa. Your cosmetic consultation typically lasts about one hour and will give you the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic goals and medical history with our plastic surgeon.

During this consultation, you will undergo a detailed physical examination to ensure you have the correct body type and a sufficient amount of excess fat for the fat transfer.

If Dr. Smart determines that you're a good candidate for this plastic surgery, you can schedule your procedure. He will provide you with a personalized quote so you know how much your procedure will cost and you will receive pre- and post-surgical instructions to help you achieve the best results possible.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

Due to the ever-growing trend of full buttocks, the Brazilian butt lift is quickly becoming a commonly requested and performed procedure at our practice serving patients throughout Plano, Frisco, and North Dallas.

Your procedure will involve several steps:


Dr. Smart, a respected board-certified plastic surgeon, is recognized for his beautiful results.
Dr. Smart, a respected board-certified plastic surgeon, is recognized for his beautiful results.


Anesthesia will be administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist who will continue to provide you with care throughout your surgery. They will ensure your comfort during the procedure.


Dr. Smart will use liposuction to remove excess fat from the thighs, abdomen, hips, or lower back, depending on your shape and goals. Not only does this provide Dr. Smart with a natural way to sculpt the buttocks, but it also allows him to contour another area of your body to improve your overall silhouette.


Dr. Smart will use centrifuge technology to filter the fat, so only the healthiest, highest-quality tissue is used during the fat grafting.


Your plastic surgeon will make small, discreet incisions (less than one centimeter in length) in strategic places of the buttocks.

Fat Grafting

The processed fat is placed through the small incisions just above the gluteal muscle. The volume is placed strategically in areas where the buttocks need more lift.

Close Incisions

Your incisions will be closed and bandaged. You will receive a compression garment to minimize swelling.

Due to the anesthesia, you will have to arrange for someone to drive you home after your procedure. We recommend someone stay with you for the first few days after surgery.

Recovering From Surgery

Following your surgery, you will experience some swelling, discomfort, and bruising. Your post-surgical instructions will help you heal quickly and prevent complications. These instructions will include:
  • Details for the proper care of the surgical sites
  • How to wear your compression garment
  • Taking medications as prescribed
  • Which activities you should avoid

How Long Will I Have to Wait To See My Results?

Although you will notice an immediate difference within a week of surgery, you will have to wait to see your final results until your swelling subsides and the fat transfer stabilizes. Patients are usually able to enjoy their final results within six to twelve months.

I cannot express enough how amazing Dr. Smart and his team are. I lost over 100lbs and needed my loose skin removed. I had an upper and lower body lift, arms, and breast lift. I had to overnight after my surgery and the nurses took such great care of me. They are always so professional and kind. Dr.Smart’s work is absolutely amazing. He performed a miracle on my body and I couldn’t be happier with the results. There are also constant follow up visits to make sure everything is healing right and when I needed to ask some questions I was able to email the nurse and she got back to me right away. This is the best establishment, extremely clean with the most professional and kind people. If you are planning to have a body transforming surgery, look no further, Dr.Smart is your guy. Thank you again Dr.Smart and team : )

Mom Life

As a mom of 4 who had nursed all my kids for at least a year, I was in need of some special care. I had sought personal referrals as well as a referral from my OB-GYN as she had seen several mommy makeovers (both good and bad) and I knew she too could be a great resource of who to trust and who not to. I interviewed quite a few as I felt like breast implants as well as a possible lift was needed. I had some doctors listen to a few of my concerns and immediately just assumed I wanted what most others had already gotten... and not truly hear what my expectations were. Dr. Smart listened and performed! He exceeded all of my expectations and I am in love with the results. His staff was also very sweet, supportive, and amazing. Communication was great and I felt fully prepared both prior to surgery and afterwards. I am typically a tough critic... and I can assure you -- I did extensive research. Dr. Smart is the only way to go!
