If diet and exercise have not provided you with the bottom you want, a Brazilian buttock lift may be the answer for you. Buttock augmentation allows you to enlarge or reshape your buttocks, contouring them and compensating for low amounts of fat in the area.
Women and men who add volume and roundness to flat or small bottoms can enjoy a more voluptuous and perky profile. Augmentation can be achieved through fat injections of your own body fat (fat grafting) or with silicone implants.
Dr. Kevin Tehrani has many years of experience providing his patients with successful buttock lifts. During your consultation with him, you will tell him how you wish to look, and he will customize your surgical plan in order to provide you with the size of buttocks you desire.
Who is a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
This procedure is ideal for people who are unhappy with the shape of their rear end and wish to enhance the natural curves of the body. Body builders are often interested in this procedure in order to create better body proportion.

The Buttock Augmentation Procedure with Fat Grafting
Fat grafting or fat transfer is the preferred method for a butt lift. It involves using liposuction to collect fat from areas of the body that have excess. That fat is then purified, and hundreds of tiny injections deposit the donor fat into the buttocks in order to lift and contour them. The most popular areas for fat collection include the lower back, waist, love handles, thighs, and abdomen.
This technique is sometimes called large-volume buttock augmentation because a significant amount of fat must be harvested in most cases for a pleasing result.
Special attention is given to the upper buttocks so that the entire rear looks youthfully and naturally lifted.
The Buttock Augmentation Procedure with Silicone Implants
If you do not have enough body fat for fat transfer, a silicone implant can be inserted in order to provide you with the curvier buttocks you want.
Buttock implants are made for each individual patient based on her body characteristics. They are made of soft silicone, which provides a firm, smooth, and natural feel. They are placed away from important nerves, as well as away from the bony area on which you sit.
Incisions are made inconspicuously in the depression between the buttocks.
Composite Buttock Augmentation
A composite buttock augmentation uses both an implant and fat grafting to achieve your desired look. Dr. Tehrani will make a recommendation for you based on your anatomy and the outcome you want.
Recovery from a Brazilian Buttock Lift
You will not be able to sit directly on your buttocks or lie on your back for 2-3 weeks. We may give you a compression garment to reduce swelling.
You can expect some soreness, bruising, and swelling for a couple of weeks. You can return to work in about two weeks and resume exercise in about four weeks. It may take up to six weeks for all swelling to subside. Then, you will be able to see the final look of your new bottom.
