At Shafer Plastic Surgery in New York City, Brazilian Butt Lift surgery has become an increasingly popular procedure. The Brazilian Butt Lift is a relatively new procedure designed to improve the contour of the buttocks and is a type of buttocks augmentation that results in a more youthful and perky derrière. The procedure can be customized for each patient to improve the size, shape, and profile of the buttocks.
The procedure involves removing fat from one or more areas of the body through a specialized liposuction technique, purifying the live fat cells, and re-injecting the cells back into the buttocks, so the butt appears lifted and perky with a new shape. The procedure has a much smaller risk of infection compared to a buttocks implant and has the added benefit of creating a leaner profile from the areas that the fat was originally harvested from.

What to Expect
For the Brazilian Butt Lift, you will have liposuction on a few areas of your body. The fat will be collected and purified before being re-injected. The fat is then injected through small cannulas to help enhance the buttocks shape and size. The procedure takes about two hours and you can go home on the same day. You will need to sleep on your stomach or sides for several weeks while the buttocks heal. During the day, you are encouraged to stand, walk and limit sitting for short periods of time while the fat heals. You will see results right away and the final result will be visible after about 3 months after all the swelling has subsided. The Brazilian Butt Lift is a great way to enhance your natural curves or create curves that you never had.
