Am I A Good Candidate For A Brazilian Butt Lift?


Possibly due to the popular influences of Latin American culture where more emphasis is placed on the hips and buttocks, more American women are now choosing to have a Brazilian butt lift (also called butt augmentation). This body sculpting  procedure is an excellent way to achieve a fuller, firmer, higher and more shapely derrière. It also can help women attain a more pleasing balance between the shape, size and contour of their butt in proportion to the rest of their body.

What is a Brazilian butt lift and what will it do?

During a Brazilian butt lift, excess fat is removed from certain parts of the body and transferred to the buttock area to achieve a lifted, plumper and more rounded appearance. Typically, I extract fat from the lower back, “love handles” and abdomen and use it to shape the top and sides of the butt. Since a Brazilian butt lift uses your own fat, there’s no chance of rejection.

Combine liposuction and breast augmentation with a butt lift for a beautiful, balanced body

In addition to performing a Brazilian butt lift, I also can trim away where you have too much fat while building up where you would like more fat. Many of my patients take advantage of the liposuction procedure used in a Brazilian butt lift to remove fat from their tummy, waist area and thighs and transfer it to their butt, giving them the beautiful, sexy hourglass silhouette they’ve always wanted.

Many women who have a Brazilian butt lift also choose to have breast augmentation (and vice versa) in order to create an ideal balance between their upper and lower body. For more information about breast augmentation surgery, watch my short 2-minute video by clicking here.

Am I a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a highly individualized procedure that can be life-changing. The changes to your "behind" as well as your overall shape are often a wonderful turning point in a person’s life, boosting their self-esteem and enabling them to feel confident about their bodies, sometimes for the first time. This is why it’s very important to undergo this surgery for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s ideas of what your body should look like.

You might be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift if you:

  1. Have lost a significant amount of weight and your butt now sags and droops.
  2. Are overweight and haven't been able to lose weight through physical activity or changes in your diet.
  3. Are at a normal weight but want to dramatically improve the appearance of your lower body.
  4. Are at a normal weight but your skin won't contract after liposuction due to poor elasticity related to aging.
  5. Are unhappy with the overall shape and lack of firmness of your butt.
  6. Are in good physical health
  7. Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
  8. Do not smoke or drink excessively

The best patient is an informed patient

As a highly experienced plastic surgeon, I feel strongly that my patients should be as well-informed as possible before undergoing any kind of surgical procedure. In addition, they should be realistic about the results they are expecting to see after surgery. For that reason, I meet extensively with each patient beforehand so that together, we can achieve the best possible results. To learn more about the range of body sculpting  procedures I offer to help you achieve a beautiful body, click here.

How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?

Recognizing that every woman’s body and desired results are unique to her, I determine the exact cost of a Brazilian butt after I have met with the patient, evaluated her body type, amount of fat stores, overall physical condition and her personal goals and expectations. Then together, we will decide which specific aspect of the procedure will achieve the best possible results. For further pricing details, please contact me.
