A Brazilian Butt lift, also known as butt augmentation, is an increasingly common cosmetic surgery technique intended to enhance the buttock area to a more heart-shaped appearance. With this method, individuals achieve a rounder, fuller, firmer buttock using their own tissue and without the need for butt implants.
Brazilian Butt Lift is a 3-D lipo sculpting method designed to reduce the flaws above and below the buttocks. In some cases, fat transfer into the butt will be needed to enhance butt projection.
Pacific Lipo's theory regarding butt accentuation is simple - beautiful butts are not simply large; they are full on the inside and tight on the outside. The behind projection may get impaired by flaws above and below the buttocks. Those are the blue shaded areas in the diagram below: the hips, saddlebags, waist, and the sacral or tail bone area. Any excess of fat in these areas will cause a reduction of butt projection.
These Deformities create the illusion of a rectangular butt. By performing 3-D lipo sculpting to eliminate the extra fat above (flanks) and below (saddlebags) the butt, we can often create a well-rounded defined lifted butt.
Fat grafting into the buttocks can add fullness to any shape buttocks, parts of it, or the entire buttocks, but needed in rare cases A good candidate is one with enough “spare” fat in other areas of the body such as the stomach, flanks, and thighs, to act as a donor site to transfer into the buttocks area.

The Pacific Lipo Brazilian Butt augmentation may be performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia or IV sedation. This procedure may take anywhere from 90 minutes to four hours. The duration will depend on the agreed-upon goals of the patient and the surgeon, as well as the amount of work that needs to be done. Fat cells may be removed from different areas of the body such as the love handles, thighs, abdomen, back, or hips through liposuction treatment. Once removed, the fat is purified and then re-injected into the buttocks. Amazingly, human fat contains stem cells that have the ability to become new tissue creating new collagen, thus improving skin texture and thickness. Using a patient's own fat cells reduces the chances of rejection by the body. Many patients choose this procedure because it is really two great procedures in one: liposuction and butt augmentation. Scarring for this procedure is very minimal and barely noticeable for most patients. Good candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift should be generally good health and somewhat overweight.
While a doctor's affiliations are definitely important, patients should check to make sure their surgeon operates in a fully accredited center. If your cosmetic surgeon does not perform procedures in a hospital, individuals should look for accreditation by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This accreditation indicates that the facility follows all proper safety protocols.
