What is the Brazilian Butt Lift Fat Grafting Process?

Brazilian Butt Lift Fat Grafting Process | Houston Plastic SurgeryBrazilian butt lift fat grafting procedure has emerged as one of the more popular body contouring cosmetic surgery procedures in recent years. The procedure is designed to add volume and provide a lift and create fuller, shapelier buttocks. Experienced plastic surgeons at ACPS provide Brazilian butt lift to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding locations.

Less Invasive Procedure

Unlike the traditional buttock lift surgery, Brazilian butt lift is relatively less invasive procedure. It involves a micro grafting technique which allows for smaller incisions, and yet produces a perkier rear. This makes the procedure less painful, reduces the risk of complications, and helps to achieve a faster recovery.
In this simple fat transfer plastic surgery, the surgeon will remove excess fat cells from other sites such as the thighs or abdomen, purify them, and inject them into the targeted areas of the buttocks. More youthful and lifted appearance to the buttocks can be restored with this efficient fat transfer technique.


Women and men who want to increase volume in the buttocks to create a more voluptuous and attractive shape, but are unable to meet this goal through nutrition and exercise, will usually make fantastic candidates for a Brazilian butt lift procedure.
The candidate should have spare or unsightly fat deposits in other parts of the body to enable fat harvesting. The candidate should have a decent overall health, and should be prepared to quit smoking several weeks before and after the surgery.

Surgical Procedure

The cosmetic surgeon at ACPS will first perform liposuction to remove unwanted fat tissue from an area such as the abdomen, thighs or hips. This fat is then purified and injected to sculpt a fuller and more attractive buttocks contour. The ACPS experts have developed a process that enables them to inject a higher volume of fat in lesser amount of time as compared to other methods of fat grafting. Results with this technique are significantly more advanced.
Traditionally, the key focus of butt lift surgery was on tightening the skin around the buttocks. However, with the innovative technique adopted at ACPS, the surgeon can create round and plump buttocks in a way that gives them a more lifted appearance. This technique avoids the need for skin removal and lifting in many cases.
As a part of fat grafting, the surgeon will strategically layer lattices of the fat next to live tissue to increase the survival rates of the grafts. While the survival rate of the grafts will vary from one patient to another, the procedure creates a soft, rounded shape of buttocks that naturally blends with the rest of the body. ACPS receives patients from Houston, Texas, TX, and nearby areas for Brazilian butt lift.


In the first few days following the surgery, the patient should avoid putting pressure on the buttocks. This will allow the transferred fat to integrate well with the existing tissue. The surgeon may prescribe pain meds for the first week. Most patients can return to their normal routine or go back to work from the second week.
