The Brazilian Butt Lift; Pros & Cons…

If you have been looking at ways on how to get a bigger butt, you have probably come across the Brazilian Butt Lift. The name seems to be absolutely everywhere. There’s a very popular workout program by this name and you will find details of this on the right of this page.

However, today what we want to talk about here is the Brazilian Butt Lift surgical procedure.

There are generally two types of butt lift or enhancement surgeries.

The first is butt implants. This is simply where a surgeon inserts solid or semi-solid silicone implants in your buttocks – pretty much butt implants for the butt.

The second types of butt enhancement surgery is the ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’. This is also known as a fat transfer because how it works is to take the fat from other areas of your body and inject it into your butt.

How does the Brazilian Butt Lift work?

The surgeon performing the Brazilian Butt Lift will take by liposuction fat from your back, stomach, or thighs and then purify it. Once purified, the purified fat is then re-injected back into the buttocks.

The fat for the transfer is taken from the more fatty areas of your body like the stomach,  “love handles,” hips, lower back, or thighs. The fat is taken with a gentle liposuction device designed to protect live fat cells. Once these fat particles are purified, they’re injected back into the muscle layers of the buttocks through a very small incision.

Who can have the Brazilian Butt Lift?

Well, as you have just learned, the Brazilian Butt Lift involves transferring fat from other areas of your body to your butt. This means, you actually need to have some spare fat elsewhere on your body.

As every Brazilian Butt Lift case is different, the average amount of fat needed for each buttock is around 250 to 350 cubic centimeters (cc) of pure fat. So, for both sides, you’re going to need about 700 cc, which equates to approximately half a pound of fat.

If you do not have much body fat and are about size 2 or size 4 you are probably more suited to butt implants since you won’t be able to spare that much fat.

If however, you have extra fat lying around on other parts of your body – the Brazilian Butt Lift is ideal since it both removes fat from parts where you don’t want it and puts more fat where you do want it.

Women who are overweight or wear above a size 8 dress size are the ideal candidates for the Brazilian But Lift. In fact, this is a great procedure if you have extra fat on your body since it functions as a two-in-one liposuction plus butt enhancement surgery.

Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Permanent?

This is one of the most important questions for any sort of butt enhancement. If you’re going to spend the time, effort, and money, you want to know “Will it last?”

For the answer to this question, we need to look at some basic facts. Fat has some interesting properties. If fat is injected into muscles or bones, it’ll feel just like muscle or bone once it’s under the skin. If, on the other hand fat is injected into a fatty area, it will feel just like…. fat.

The downside of transferring fat to the butt, breasts, face, or any other part of the body is that some of it will be reabsorbed by the body. Because the re-absorption varies from person-to-person, surgeons are unable to predict how much will be reabsorbed.

You can be sure however, that whatever fat you have remaining three months after surgery will be yours permanently.

What are the PROS and CONS of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Apart from getting a plump, round butt virtually instantly – there are some other advantages of getting a fat transfer to your buttocks.How to get a bigger butt


  • Relatively short downtime: Considering this is a surgical procedure, you should be able to go back to work in around 2 weeks.
  • Less risk of infection: The fat being injected into your butt is your own fat so there is a very low risk of infection.
  • Zero chance of rejection: Unlike implants, fat is an ideal substance for butt enhancement because the fat is your own body’s substance.
  • Feels like muscle: As mentioned above, injected fat will take on the characteristics of the place where it’s injected. When it’s injected near bone, it’ll feel like bone. When it’s injected into muscle, it’ll feel like muscle. None of that lumpy, bumpy look that people mistakenly think injected fat might look like. It will simply look like part of your butt muscle.
  • Little discomfort: The recovery time from the Brazilian Butt Lift comes mostly from the liposuction procedure used to remove the fat. The actual injection however, does give a very small amount of discomfort.
  • Uniform and natural look: Both the liposuction and the fat injections are made through very small incisions so you won’t be left with scars. The fat is also inserted carefully in different layers so you will end up with a uniform and natural look, exactly like it’s your own butt fat. The last huge benefit of the Brazilian Butt Lift is that because it is not implants, there’s no risk of it migrating or moving.
  • Slimming effect: The fat removed from the fatty areas of your body like the waist and thighs will make your newly-plumped butt stick out even more.


Everything has a set of drawbacks. Before you starting looking into getting a Brazilian Butt Lift, here are some of the snags you should know about.

  • Careful handling of the butt: The newly injected fat need a good blood supply to nourish the fat so it’s recommended that you do not put too much pressure on the buttocks for at least 2 months after the procedure. This means no tight clothes and limited sitting, which can be quite an inconvenience.
  • Not a very high yield: The biggest drawback of the Brazilian Butt Lift is that the fat survival rate is pretty unpredictable. Studies show that only about 50-80% of the fat transferred will survive and remain on the buttocks. The rest will be reabsorbed by the body. A reasonable expectation would be around 25-50% increase from your current size.
  • Repeated procedures: Studies have also shown that injecting too much fat at once lessens the retention rate, so if you want a significant increase in your buttocks, you’ll have to go for the option of several procedures done approximately every 3 months until you get the butt you want.
  • The cost: A Brazilian Butt Lift will cost you anywhere between $7,000 to $12,000 if you get it done in North America. It’s not covered by health insurance at all so you’d have to foot the bill yourself. It is, of course, cheaper in other countries and can be as low as $3,000 in South America. This might be an option to consider if you really want to do it but do not want to pay too much. Thailand is another great option.

One last thought about the Brazilian Butt Lift:

Make sure you get a qualified surgeon and not just qualified, but a surgeon who is experienced in performing fat transfers. Fat can be tricky for doctors to work with so it’s essential you work with someone who knows what he or she is doing.
