Brazilian Butt Lift
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift at our Washington, D.C. practice is a surgical procedure that augments and/or shapes the buttocks with your own fat for a more pronounced, voluminous appearance. The procedure is particularly effective when flabby “orange peel” skin is present or when the buttocks are flat or undersized.
In many cases, the Brazilian butt lift is performed in conjunction with other body contouring procedures such as VASERlipo™, a Mommy Makeover, abdominoplasty, thigh lifts, or VASERsmooth™ cellulite reduction. Working with Dr. Paul G. Ruff IV, FACS, Dr. Praful Ramineni, and our surgeons and their team at West End Plastic Surgery, you can determine the procedure that is right for you and be assured of the results you desire.
Are You a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
If you feel that your buttocks are flat or don’t match the contours of the rest of your body, or if your skin in that area is excessively loose and flabby and exercise and dieting have been unable to correct the problem, you are likely a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift.
Meeting With the Doctor
Prior to scheduling your Brazilian butt lift, you will meet at length with your surgeon and their staff at West End Plastic Surgery to determine whether the procedure is right for you and to answer any questions you may have. At this initial consultation, your buttock, waist, and thigh regions will be evaluated, and we will discuss how you want this area to look after surgery.
Butt Lift Procedure
Unless your surgery is extensive, Dr. Ruff or one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will perform it at our state-of-the-art, AAAASF-certified surgical suite, where they are dedicated to your complete comfort during and after the procedure. We use either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation depending on the extent of the procedure. The surgery takes between one and five hours to complete. We will discuss the type of anesthesia and the anticipated length of your procedure at your initial consultation.
To start the surgery, your surgeon makes an incision high on the lower area of the buttock in as inconspicuous a location as possible. In most cases, though the incision may be extensive, they place it in a position that will allow you to wear a bathing suit and current clothing styles without the scar being visible. We will discuss the exact placement of your incision with you during your initial consultation.
Once your surgeon makes the incision, they extract fat from another area of the body, such as the abdomen or thigh, via liposuction. They then purify this fat and adds it to the buttocks. They shape the fat for a voluptuous, natural-looking contour, and may also remove excess skin for a smooth result. In some cases, they will add buttock implants to further enhance results. Stitches are then used to close the incision. Once the incision is stitched, gauze dressings and tape are applied over the surgical area and a compression garment is placed.

How Long Will the Results of Your Brazilian Butt Lift Last?
Brazilian butt lift surgery dramatically improves the appearance of your buttock and upper thigh region. Skin appears tighter and smoother, and the buttocks have a larger, more pronounced shape. These results generally last five to ten years, however, large weight fluctuations or pregnancy will affect how long the results last.
