During the procedure, excess fat is removed from the hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs with liposuction, and a portion of this fat is then strategically injected into the bottom.

A skilled cosmetic surgeon can improve the proportions of the entire lower body with Brazilian bum lift surgery, helping a patient lose fat in common 'problem areas' and enhance the buttocks, with results lasting several years.

What does surgery entail?

A Brazilian bum lift involves three basic steps:

Surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, using general anesthesia or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia. It is typical for a portion of the injected fat not to “take” in its new location—an experienced cosmetic surgeon will take this into account and may initially inject a slightly greater amount of fat into the buttocks than is needed to ensure your final results most closely achieve your goals.
