Brazilian Butt Lift

If your buttocks lack fullness, shape, and projection, a Brazilian Butt Lift can enhance them. Dr. Naveen Setty performs Brazilian Butt Lift surgery to enhance the shape, projection, and volume of the buttocks. This procedure produces natural-looking results that can enhance your appearance and self-image while improving the contour of your buttocks.

Your Brazilian Butt Lift


Desire to Improve:
  • Shape of the buttocks
  • Size of the buttocks
  • Projection and lift of the buttocks
  • Fullness and volume of the buttocks
Must Have:
  • Realistic expectations about the results
  • Sufficient fatty tissue in other areas of the body to harvest for the procedure
  • No major health issues, illnesses, or bleeding conditions
  • No smoking habits or be willing to quit before the procedure
  • A desire for natural-looking buttock enhancement


  • Projection of the buttocks
  • Self-confidence and body image
  • Clothing fit for lower body
  • Fullness and volume of the buttocks
  • Shape of the buttocks
  • Overall body shape and contours
Additional Benefits:
  • Causes the waistline to appear narrower by comparison
  • Reduces body fat in trouble areas to produce more attractive body contours
  • Uses body fat to create more natural contours
  • No risk of bodily rejection of the injected material
  • Requires fewer and smaller incisions than other techniques
  • Has less scarring than other butt augmentation techniques


Part 1: Liposuction
  • The fat harvest site or sites (such as the abdomen and/or hips) are marked
  • Small incisions are made in the harvest site(s)
  • Tumescent fluid is injected through the incisions
  • Cannulas are inserted to break up the fat cells and gently suction them out
  • The incisions are closed with absorbable sutures
Part 2: Fat Grafting to the Buttocks
  • The extracted fat cells are purified and prepared for injection into the buttocks
  • The purified fat cells are strategically injected into the muscle and fat layers of the buttocks in a fan pattern
  • The site is massaged to ensure proper contour and fat placement
  • Typically, more fat is injected than necessary to account for resorption rates


Pain and discomfort are common after Brazilian Butt Lift surgery. A compression garment will be provided to minimize swelling and bruising in the liposuction treatment area(s). Soreness and tenderness can be controlled with pain medications and should subside after a few days to a few weeks.
Most patients can return home immediately after the procedure. Patients must avoid putting pressure or sitting on the buttocks for two weeks after surgery to ensure that the area heals properly. It may be necessary to wait two to three weeks before returning to work, especially if your job requires long periods of sitting. Patients can resume exercise approximately three to four weeks after surgery.
Oral pain medications can be prescribed to ease any discomfort or soreness after your Brazilian Butt Lift. Antibiotics will also be provided and should be taken as instructed to prevent infections after surgery.
Scarring after the Brazilian Butt Lift is minimal, especially in comparison to other butt augmentation procedures. The liposuction incisions are small and inconspicuously placed so that scarring will not present any cosmetic issues. Patients who are naturally good healers may have no noticeable scarring at all. Any scarring that does develop will be minor and will fade over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

To undergo the Brazilian Butt Lift, you must have sufficient fat for harvesting from your abdomen, hips, thighs, or elsewhere on your body. Unfortunately, patients who are naturally thin or have very little excess body fat may not qualify for the procedure. At your initial consultation, Dr. Setty can determine if you are a good candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift. If you do not qualify, Dr. Setty can recommend alternative procedures to enhance your body shape.
If you desire more transformative results for your figure, you can combine your Brazilian Butt Lift with other cosmetic procedures such as a breast augmentation. You can also take advantage of the opportunity to receive liposuction on multiple areas of your body. However, Dr. Setty does not commonly combine a tummy tuck and Brazilian Butt Lift in the same surgery because of the increased difficulty with patient comfort and positioning.
After a Brazilian Butt Lift, some of the injected fat will be absorbed by the body. While Dr. Setty accounts for this when performing the procedure, it is possible that multiple procedures may need to be performed to achieve the best results. Dr. Setty will go over these details with you during your consultation so that you can know what to expect.
The cost of your Brazilian Butt lift will depend on several factors, such as the extent of liposuction and operating room fees. It will also depend on whether you need to undergo the procedure more than once. You can review our cosmetic procedure pricing page to have an idea of what to expect.
Immediate changes can be seen soon after your surgery. As the swelling diminishes and as some of the fat is reabsorbed by the body, your results will become more noticeable. The final striking results can be seen by approximately three to six months after your surgery.
The results from your Brazilian Butt Lift should be long lasting. Once the fat cells have become incorporated into the tissues of the buttocks, they will become a permanent part of your buttocks and will continue to enhance its shape, fullness, and projection for years to come.
