Brazilian butt lift recovery

Following your buttock augmentation or Brazilian butt lift, you will likely be sent home with a special protective garment to wear over the buttocks for the first few weeks of recovery. Wearing this as directed will help to decrease swelling and help you see your intended results sooner. In most cases, patients can return to typical activities within a few days to a week after the procedure.

What happens during Brazilian butt lift surgery?

During a Brazilian butt lift procedure, you will be placed under local or general anesthesia. Using a cannula and a minimally invasive technique, your hip liposuction or liposuction on other areas of the body will be performed. From there, the fat that was removed from those areas can be injected into the buttocks to reshape and enhance the area. These buttocks injections, combined with hip liposuction, can yield immediately noticeable results.

Brazilian butt lift risks and safety information

As with any buttocks augmentation, a Brazilian bottom lift should only be done if you are aware of the potential risks and side effects. These may include:

  • swelling
  • infection
  • visible scarring

Your Brazilian butt lift surgery consultation

If you’re interested in buttocks enhancement, it’s recommended that you set up a consultation with our plastic surgeon. Here you can find out whether you’re a candidate for fat grafting to the buttocks, along with what type of results you could expect from the procedure and for what cost.

Preparing for Brazilian butt lift surgery

The most important way you can prepare for buttock enhancement surgery is to take the necessary time off work to recover, especially if you have a job that’s physically demanding. For most patients, this is about a week. You may also want to have somebody to drive you home from the procedure, as sitting may be uncomfortable.

Questions to ask my plastic surgeon

During a consultation with our plastic surgeon, Dr. Earl Ferguson, you’re encouraged to ask any questions you may have regarding the procedure — anything from how long your expected recovery may be to what steps you can take to reduce scarring. This board-certified surgeon is here to help.
