About the Brazilian Butt Lift
Achieving full, lifted glutes can be difficult for many men and women, especially as they age. Phoenix and Scottsdale, AZ patients who are interested in lifting or improving their buttocks can greatly benefit from a Brazilian butt lift procedure performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger. A Brazilian butt lift, also referred to as gluteal augmentation or butt augmentation, is an enhancement surgery that is designed to improve the look and shape of the buttocks. The procedure process involves removing fat from other areas of the body, such as the stomach, and transferring it to the butt in order to add volume and elevation. This has become a very popular and successful procedure as it does not require silicone implants. To learn more, patients can schedule a one-on-one meeting with Dr. Meger at his private plastic surgery practice.
Candidates for the Brazilian butt lift get the best of both worlds with this butt augmentation surgery, as it slims other areas and adds sensual volume to the buttocks. Best candidates will have the following:
- Excellent skin elasticity in the buttocks area
- Have enough fatty tissue available for liposuction
- Have overall good health
- Have realistic expectations of the fat transfer

What to Expect
A process known as a fat transfer is used to perform the Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Meger will first determine the areas where he can obtain fat cells before implementing the treatment. Typically, he’ll take the fat from such areas as the hips, abdomen, and possibly the thighs or back. Dr. Meger then uses liposuction to remove the fat from those areas. The fat cells are then separated from other materials removed during the liposuction and injected into the buttocks. This is performed with a brand new, state-of-the-art machine that filters out the fat cells more efficiently than the previous methods, resulting in decreased surgical time. Dr. Meger uses the fat to sculpt, lift, and tone the buttocks to the patient’s desired shape. The Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient procedure performed in an accredited surgical facility (under general anesthesia) 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 will not be able to sit or lay down on their backs for at least 2 – 3 weeks. Patients can expect to be swollen and bruised as well.
Many patients choose a Brazilian butt lift because they want their new curves to look and feel natural, or 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. Our plastic 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. Patients can expect to see their full results a few months after their procedure.
