Brazilian Butt Lift Dallas
The number of buttock augmentation surgeries has increased drastically over the last few years and they are more popular today than ever. If you would like a firmer, more rounded rear, you’re not alone. Buttock enlargement allows flat or poorly developed buttocks to be enhanced. While many women will increase the size of their breasts, they may also have an imbalance between their front and the back. Buttock enlargement addresses this disproportion. There are many women who have nice curves of the breasts and thighs, but need to round out the buttocks as well.
Using your own fat is the most natural way to augment your buttocks. Over the last few years, the buttocks have received more press coverage than ever before. We are also seeing many men requesting fat transfer to perk up a less than desirable backside! We have been performing fat transfer procedures since 2002.
Fat Grafting or Butt Implants
The use of fat grafting has revolutionized buttock lift surgery. Compared to buttock implants, it is safer and requires a shorter operative time – which saves money and decreases surgical risks. Using your own fat instead of artificial implants results in decreased pain and discomfort post-operatively, and requires minimal recuperation.
What is the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a butt augmentation procedure which results in youthful, prominent, perky buttocks and a more sensual body profile.
The Brazilian butt lift is actually two surgeries in one: First, your own fat is taken from less desirable areas (waist, tummy, thighs) making these areas more slim. That fat is then moved to your backside to enhance its shape and contour. The procedure is ideal for flat or sagging buttocks. It can create an illusion of a’ lift’ by adding more volume to the upper part of the butt.
How is a Brazilian Butt Lift performed?
We carefully and gently extract fat with liposuction from areas where there is an excess. Dr. Light uses this fat as a sculpting tool to craft a more perky, prominent and sensuous buttocks. The fat is removed usually from the tummy and waist. This slimming effect of the areas surrounding the buttocks will accentuate the “pop” of the butt. The ‘harvested fat’ is then processed and purified in the operating room and prepared for injection. The fat is carefully injected into the butt using special micro-cannulas. Small amounts of purified fat are injected into different areas of the buttocks and at various depths to help optimize retention of the new fat “grafts”. The surgery usually takes 2 – 3 hours.
The average amount of fat that we inject into each buttocks cheek is 500cc. Some patients may need as much as 1000cc on each side depending on available fat and the desires of the patient. The goal is not to create the biggest butt possible, but to approach the waist and buttocks as an artistic unit to sculpt a curvy, attractive transition between and smaller waist and a fuller butt.
The Brazilian Butt Lift fat transfer procedure can be individualized and ‘stylized’ based on personal and cultural preferences. some people want the bulk of the volume at the top of the buttocks to create a “shelf” while others wish to fill out the lower portion of their buttocks to create an upside down heart shape.
What are the risks of buttock augmentation using fat grafting?
Only a fraction of the donor fat removed will qualify for re-injection to the buttocks. The average long term retention is 50 – 60%. Whatever is left after 3 months is the real final result. Be aware that the brazilian butt lift result is highly dependent upon the experience of the surgeon.
Up to 15% of patients will request a second touch-up procedure because some of the transplanted fat didn’t ‘take’. Otherwise, the risks are essentially the same as with standard liposuction, which has an excellent history of safety.
The type of Anesthesia used
We use IV sedation with tumescent (numbing solution) anesthesia routinely with all of our surgeries. It is much safer than the riskier General Anesthesia – which is totally unnecessary for cosmetic surgical outpatient procedures. IV sedation has less side effects such as nausea, less risk of blood clots and lung complications, and patients recover much quickly .
What to expect after the Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
You can typically return to work within ten days of surgery, and feel “like your old self” around day thirty. You will wear a special garment and use a “butt pillow” placed beneath the hamstrings to relieve pressure on the buttocks for 2 – 4 weeks post-surgery. You should avoid sleeping flat on your back, as this places a lot of pressure on the buttocks, and might suppress the desired outcome. After 4 – 6 you may resume all normal activities.
After a fat transplantation procedure, how do the buttocks look and feel?
Newly shaped buttocks will feel natural after the healing process. Since the additional shape is created by a patient’s soft fat, the result will look and feel normal. Patients will not even be able to distinguish which areas have been grafted.
How much does a Brazilian Butt Lift cost?
The cost is variable since every patient has unique needs. These varibles include:
- Geographic location of your surgeon
- Surgeon fees (surgeons with more experience will charge more)
- Operating room fees
- Anesthesia fees
- Medications and garment
- How many areas are liposuctioned – usually between 2 and 4 areas are commonly used to harvest fat.
Generally, the price ranges between $6000 – $10,000.

The Brazilian butt lift method results in the most natural and sensual look for the buttock area. You not only get a more shapely buttock, but the areas liposuctioned are now much leaner, giving your profile a more sensuous look.
