Understanding the Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian butt lift in the Bay Area

There’s no doubt that diet and exercise can work wonders for your body. Of course, genetics play an equally important part. If you’re struggling to get the curvy buttocks you desire, genetics might be to blame. Thankfully, adding natural-looking volume to your buttocks is easier than ever with a Brazilian Butt Lift.

If you’re considering a Brazilian Butt Lift, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ereso is happy to walk you through your options. Read on as they explain more about this amazing procedure.

Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure that enhances the shape of your buttocks. On the surface, it’s a simple procedure: your surgeon takes surplus fat from other areas of your body and injects it into your buttocks. Not only is it an effective way to add volume and structure to your backside, it’s all-natural. Your own tissue is used to augment your buttock.

The Brazilian Butt Lift consists of two distinct steps. First, your surgeon uses liposuction to remove excess fat from the “donor” part of your body. Depending on your body shape and composition, this donor part may be your thighs, abdomen, hips, or lower back. After extraction, the fat is put through a purifying process and is then injected into designated areas of the buttocks.

The result? A shapely, all-natural addition to your buttocks that lasts for years. The process is considered semi-permanent – you can expect more than 65% of the volume to persist for the first year.


One of the great benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift is that the procedure uses your body’s own organic material. This virtually eliminates the likelihood of rejection and decreases recovery time. That said, the Brazilian Butt Lift is a serious cosmetic procedure. Expect to take at least a few weeks off from work and you’ll likely be back to regular activity within one to two months.

Proper post-op care is important. Your surgeon will recommend a mix of behavior changes that will make recovery easier: loose-fitting garments, avoiding pressure on the treated area, and the use of specially-designed cushions. You’ll want to avoid sleeping on your back, and it’s imperative to avoid restricting blood flow to the treated area.

If you have questions about the recovery process, please contact the office of Dr. Ereso for a consultation.

Potential Risks

Like any invasive medical procedure, the Brazilian Butt Lift comes with a certain amount of risk. Discomfort (bruising, swelling, and so on) in the buttocks and donor area is expected for some time after the procedure. There’s also a slightly elevated risk of infection and blood clots.

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, the Brazilian Butt Lift is a safe, effective way to achieve the shapely buttocks you desire.
