Buttock enhancement procedures were popular last year. According to recent figures by the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, consumer interest in the Brazilian butt lift (buttock enhancement via fat transfer) doubled in 2013. At our practice, we have had similar interest in the Brazilian Butt Lift.
Patients wonder about the recovery and how long before they will be able to return to work. Although recovery can vary from one patient to another, for most patients two weeks of recovery time is needed before returning to work. Plus, it is extremely important to use pillows for cushion when sitting to avoid putting pressure on the buttocks. In your third week of recovery, you will likely be allowed to sit and drive again and will be encouraged to do some mild stretches. You can return to your full exercise routine eight to 10 weeks following surgery, provided there are no complications.
Brazilian Butt Lift outcomes are designed to last for a lifetime. However, your diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices will play a part in the lifespan of the procedure.

As the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure last year, liposuction is now a household word. However, only a few are aware that you can actually utilize the fat removed from liposuction to further enhance your physical appearance. Through fat transfer, it is now possible to transplant the harvested fat from liposuction to areas in the body that that look arguably better with added volume such as the face, breasts, hand, and buttocks.
The Rising Popularity of the Brazilian Butt Lift
Although buttock augmentation via fat transfer, popularly known as the Brazilian butt lift, did not make it into the Top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures in 2013, it is worth noting that it enjoyed a whopping 58 percent increase in the number of procedures performed that year in comparison to 2012.
Surprisingly, it’s not just women who are looking into giving their derriere a boost. This New York Times article last year talked about the increasing number of men who decided to do something about their non-existent butt via fat transfer.
Who Can Have the Brazilian Butt Lift
Apart from the desire to enhance the buttocks, anyone who is thinking of having a Brazilian butt lift should have sufficient amounts of fat in other areas of the body such as the abdomen and thighs. In addition, you should be near or within your ideal body weight at the time of the procedure. Finally, it is important to have realistic expectations of the procedure.
