Also known as a buttock lift, a Brazilian butt lift is designed to improve the fullness and firmness of the buttocks. There are essentially two different methods used to improve the appearance, shape, and fullness of the buttocks. Dr. Matthew Malamet offers both implants and autologous fat injections to improve the overall contour of the buttocks. Depending on the desired results, autologous fat injections are generally the best option unless there is not enough fat to harvest and implants are necessary. Both butt implants and autologous fat injections can produce smooth, firm, and perky buttocks.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
A Brazilian butt lift generally begins with harvesting fat from the abdomen, back, thighs, and other areas of the body that may have excess fat that can be used for the procedure. The fat is harvested using liposuction and then is purified. Once the harvested fat is purified, Dr. Malamet injects the fat into precise locations on the buttocks to add volume and improve the shape. If implants are necessary to achieve the desired results, a small incision may be necessary to insert the implant into the ideal location.

Brazilian Butt Lift Results
The results from a Brazilian butt lift are generally immediately visible following the procedure. As swelling and bruising subside and the autologous fat settles into place, the results from a Brazilian butt lift will improve over time. The final result will be fuller, more firm, and aesthetically appealing buttocks.
