A Brazilian butt lift, sometimes referred to as butt augmentation, is a plastic surgery procedure that can help you achieve the round, fuller booty that you desire. Although this cosmetic surgery has been around for years, it is just within recent years that it has gained in popularity with individuals trying to mimic the derrières of celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian.
Salem plastic surgeons Dr. Keith C. Neaman and Dr. Dustin Christiansen of Neaman Plastic Surgery provide Brazilian butt lift procedures to patients looking to add shape and definition to their butt in efforts to enhance their overall appearance and obtain the much-coveted hourglass figure.

A Brazilian butt lift, not to be confused with butt implants, is a cosmetic procedure that uses your own fat to precisely shape and sculpt your buttocks. By using your own fat, your risk for developing an infection or experiencing an adverse reaction is drastically reduced. This body contouring treatment utilizes liposuction to obtain fat from another area on your body, so it can then be reinjected into your bottom to create a lifted and perkier buttocks. This is known as fat grafting, and it’s like having two procedures in one where you are able to treat a troubled area by removing unwanted fat and placing it where you want or need it.
Benefits Of A Brazilian Butt Lift
Body contouring is either a surgical or non-surgical procedure that is more artistic and tailored to meet your aesthetic goals. Procedures include liposuction, body lift, tummy tuck, mommy makeover, thigh lift, butt lift, and a variety of laser treatments with the goal in mind to restore balance and symmetry.
It’s important to know the difference between these two procedures when considering butt augmentation. While both are technically types of butt augmentation, a Brazilian butt lift uses the patient’s own body fat to create the desired shape, whereas, butt implants require the implantation of a foreign object, in this case silicone implants, to augment the buttocks. Fat grafting allows for safer and more effective results that look and feel more natural.
A Brazilian butt lift procedure begins by performing liposuction to extract the excess fat to be used. Once the fat is suctioned out, it is placed into a centrifuge to be purified and prepared for re-injection. The fat is then loaded into several syringes or cannulas before being carefully and precisely injected into the buttocks and outer hips. It is important that you always have your injections performed by a highly skilled board-certified surgeon such as Dr. Neaman or Dr. Christiansen to prevent possible complications. Following injection, Dr. Neaman and Dr. Christiansen use their surgical expertise to gently massage the treatment area to ensure the fat is evenly distributed and to help shape the buttocks for a rounder and perkier appearance.

A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that shapes the backside by lifting and adding volume using excess fat taken from the body and re-injected into the buttocks.
Ideal candidates are individuals in good overall health, who desire to enhance a flat or sagging backside to achieve improved bodily contours. Brazilian butt lift candidates should have excess fat somewhere on their body that can be used for fat grafting.
Recovery times will vary from patient to patient, but most patients are able to resume normal activities between three and four weeks. A compression garment may need to be worn following surgery depending on where liposuction was performed.
There are several places on the body where fat can be harvested, such as the midsection and arms. The most common sites treated with liposuction for a Brazilian butt lift include the abdomen, hips and inner thighs.
