The Brazilian butt lift, or butt augmentation, is a surgical procedure that improves the firmness, shape and volume of the buttocks.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift in Scottsdale & Phoenix, also called a fat transfer to the buttocks - can produce a pleasing, natural and full rear through a combination of liposuction and fat transfer. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes between one and three hours to complete.

Fat transfer involves harvesting fat from one area of the body like the abdomen, hips or thighs — and then preparing and injecting it into the buttocks. Fat is collected through very small incisions that are about one-quarter inch in length and well concealed. The fat will be injected in very small amounts to produce a smooth and curved appearance, tighten the skin, and naturally lift sagging and wrinkled tissue.

What does a butt augmentation Procedure Entail?

The Brazilian butt lift is broken down into three stages: anesthesia, liposuction and fat injection. Here’s a look at what to expect each step of the way:

Step 1: Anesthesia

Immediately before your procedure, we will administer medications to ensure your comfort and safety. The Brazilian butt lift is done under general anesthesia, which means you will be completely asleep and unable to remember anything from the surgery.

Step 2: Liposuction

During the liposuction phase, Dr. Shapiro will make small incisions in the target area. He will then insert a cannula through the openings, moving it back and forth to break up and suction out the unwanted fat for the procedure. Liposuction for a Brazilian butt lift can be performed anywhere on the body, but it is most often done on the hips, back, thighs and abdomen.

Step 3: Fat injections

The fat that was removed via liposuction will be processed to prepare it for injections. Dr. Shapiro will then transfer the fat to your buttocks through a series of strategically placed injections.

What is the Recover LikeFor a Butt Augmentation in Phoenix?

Many patients experience mild swelling, discomfort, and bruising after their Brazilian butt lift. These side effects typically resolve within one to two weeks. Stitches placed during the liposuction phase of the procedure will be removed one week later.

Most patients are able to return to work within seven to ten days. A special compression garment will be worn for the first month to support the new contours and help minimize swelling.

Patients should avoid exercise and sitting directly on the buttocks for about two weeks. Sleeping on the side or stomach is best during this time.

What are the Results of a Brazilian Butt Lift in Phoenix?

Dr. Shapiro customizes all of his procedures to each patient’s needs, goals and desires. With that said, you can expect a behind that is perkier, firmer, and rounder – and looks beautifully at home on your body. In addition, you will experience visible slimming benefits in the areas where liposuction was performed. The results are visible immediately, but will not be considered final until about one year after surgery, when the injected fat has settled.

The Brazilian butt lift produces very long-lasting results, as the transferred fat establishes a blood supply and thrives. As long as you continue to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, the results of your procedure can endure for years.

Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in Scottsdale & Phoenix

The cost of a Brazilian butt lift in Scottsdale and Phoenix can vary. There are several factors that will ultimately determine your final cost, such as your desired result, the extent of liposuction required, and more. During your consultation with Dr. Shapiro, he will discuss your goals for the procedure and give you a cost estimate for the surgery.

Your total cost will include surgical fees, as well as any other fees for anesthesia and aftercare. Dr. Shapiro also has some financing options available, which can be discussed during your consultation.


Is There Any Scarring Involved?

The Brazilian butt lift results in very limited scarring. Tiny scars will be present at the liposuction incision sites, but they will fade with time. We will provide you with a topical scar gel to aid in this healing process.
