About the Brazilian Butt Lift
Many men and women today are undergoing plastic surgery to enhance their silhouette. At Orange County Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Juris Bunkis offers Brazilian butt lift surgery to those who are dissatisfied with their lack of fullness. A Brazilian butt lift uses a fat transfer to enhance the buttocks, but liposuction is sometimes included as well. During a fat transfer procedure, fat is taken from one area of the body (like the thighs) and transferred to another area of the body that is lacking volume. Many individuals prefer this method as opposed to implants because it is a natural avenue to increase their definition. In the appropriate patient, the result will leave you with a potentially fuller, rounder buttocks. But to be successful, the patient has to have an ample excess of fat to use as donor sites - otherwise, implants will be a better option.
Brazilian butt lift surgery is often requested by men and women all across the nation. Ideal candidates:
- Desire a curvier, fuller bottom
- Have lost significant weight and want to restore volume to their butt
- Have excellent skin elasticity

What to Expect
The Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient procedure performed at the Orange County Surgery Center (under deep sedation or a light general anesthetic) for several hours or longer if there are multiple areas of fat that are receiving liposuction. All incisions made for the Brazilian butt lift are very small and the fat is injected in layers with a syringe. Once the procedure is complete and the patient is in the recovery room, the patient is allowed to do anything that is not uncomfortable. Patients can expect to be swollen and bruised as well but will typically see their beautiful results in 6 – 8 weeks.
Many patients choose a Brazilian butt lift because they want their new curves to look and feel natural, plus they do not want an implant. The disadvantage to using body fat instead of an implant is that there is a higher chance that the fat may be reabsorbed into the body, deflating the fat grafting site. The surgeon will usually add more fat than the patient needs for their desired look to account for initial fat reabsorption. Patients should keep in mind that any major fluctuations in weight (gain or loss) will affect the aesthetics of the surgery.
