Is a Brazilian Butt Lift a Safe Procedure?


With celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and J.Lo leading the way, bigger, shapelier behinds are more popular than ever, which is why procedures such as the Brazilian butt lift are performed by countless surgeons all over the world every single year.

Due to the many advances in techniques and technology, fat transfer has also become one of the safer and most effective ways to add volume to and contour your buttocks.

What happens during a Brazilian butt lift?

In order to achieve a sexier behind, a surgeon will remove excess fat from areas such as your thighs, abdomen or hips using liposuction. This fat is then purified and processed before it is injected in the buttocks.

Is it safe?

The main reason why a Brazilian butt lift is safer than procedures such as butt implant surgery is because it uses the body’s own fat. This firstly means that the body won’t reject it and because fat transfer is far less invasive than butt implants, there is much lower risk of infection.

What can I expect during the recovery process?

The recovery process for a Brazilian butt lift is much shorter than butt implant surgery. Patients can expect some minor discomfort after their procedure along with some bruising, swelling and numbness, which will subside after a few weeks.

Even though there is far less chance of infection, it’s still incredibly important to follow your surgeon’s post-op instructions if you want to rule out infection completely.

In terms of other risks and potential complications, hematoma is possible. This is when blood collects around the surgical area, causing pain and swelling. It should be noted that this type of complications is a lot less common with a Brazilian butt lift than other surgeries.  

For more in-depth butt lift surgery procedure details, it’s best to consult with a professional plastic surgeon.

Choosing a butt lift surgeon

Choosing the right surgeon is one of the most important parts of the entire butt lift process.

It’s incredibly important that you thoroughly research several surgeons in your area before you schedule your procedure.

Your surgeon should not only be board-certified and have the right qualifications behind their name but they should also have extensive experience with this particular type of procedure. During your consultation, ask the doctor about their certifications, qualifications and experience to make sure that they tick all the right boxes.

It’s also a good idea to ask to see some before and after pictures of procedures they’ve performed in the past to make sure that you’re happy with their capabilities.

Never choose a plastic surgeon based on price alone because experience and qualifications are far more important, especially since you will be putting your health in someone else’s hands.

Ask as many questions as you need to during your consultation so that you’re completely comfortable with the surgeon and the procedure before you make a difference.

Overall, the Brazilian butt lift is much safer than procedures such as butt implants and it will leave you with the most natural-looking results.
