Introduction to Brazilian Butt Lift
At Platinum Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, Brazilian Butt Lift is one of our most frequently asked about procedures. With tight jeans, body-con dresses, and other fashion trends, a round butt is in high demand. While some people have a naturally curvy figure or can get the shape they want through exercises like squats, some people may need plastic surgery to obtain full, rounded buttocks. While butt augmentation surgery can be performed with implants, many people are now enjoying the natural-looking results of a fat transfer to the buttocks. Commonly known as a Brazilian butt lift, a fat transfer to the buttocks both removes excess fat from the body and carefully adds it where it is wanted for better body curves. Dr. Chris Costa, with his years of training and artistic eye, will work with you to create natural-looking results.

Before & afters
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazillian Butt Lift is a very popular surgery where fat is transferred from another part of your body (i.e abdomen, hips, lower back, or thigh) into your buttocks. This procedure gives you a more “hourglass-shape” figure and larger buttocks. Some patients also notice a smaller waist when the fat is removed from their abdomen and/ or lower back through Liposuction.
Who are the Best Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Candidates for our Las Vegas Brazilian butt lift will be evaluated to confirm they can undergo this surgery. The first is to make certain there is adequate fat to extract based on your goals. If you have a low body fat percentage or do not have enough fat to achieve your goals, you may be a better candidate for butt augmentation with an implant. If you are at a healthy weight, have the right amount of excess fat to extract, and would prefer not to use an implant, a Brazilian butt lift may be a good option for you.
What are the Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Dr. Costa has noticed his patients enjoy the following benefits from their BBL:
- Always be Bikini-Ready – We all know the pressures of getting “beach body ready” and while a BBL isn’t the penultimate answer, it gives you a rocket start!
- No Synthetic Fillers or Implants Required – There are no synthetic additions so, at the end of the day, every bit of you is all you!
- Completely Natural Looking – Since everything being put in your buttocks comes from you, it gives you a natural look.
- Customized to Your Aesthetic – Not all body types are the same, so why should you look like you came off an assembling line? When you come to Dr. Costa, he will ensure that your procedure compliments your body.
- Provides Long-Term Results – The fat injected into your buttocks is all-natural, so no need to worry about your body absorbing the injectable material. With the proper diet and exercise, you can only enhance your appearance.
Even though you may work hard to achieve firm, round buttocks, sometimes our bodies don’t respond the way we hope. If you possess toned muscles in your butt, but lack the shape you desire, Butt Implants are a great solution. While this is different than a BBL, it can be a good alternative for certain patients. A butt implant uses a Silicone implant that gives your posterior more definition for those who don’t have enough fat tissue to make butt augmentation procedures possible. This procedure works best for those who are near their target weight and don’t have a lot of excess skin.
Many of our patients in Las Vegas choose to get a butt implant when they are trying to improve the following:
- A rear end that is “too small” for their frame
- Have a butt that’s more “flat” or “square” than desired
- Looking for a boost in self-esteem
- Saggy rear end from weight loss or aging
- Want clothing to fit better
On the day of your procedure, you will be given anesthesia so you won’t be able to feel anything. Then, Dr. Costa will make a cut to insert the implants which could be made on the top of your upper buttocks, at the bottom, or between the cheeks; this will be discussed during your consultation. Next, he will put the implants into or below the muscle on both sides of your buttocks. Once completed, your incisions will be closed, an antibiotic will be applied to the area, and a dressing will be applied.

What to Expect on the Day of a Brazilian Butt Lift
In most cases, anesthesia is used for a fat transfer surgery of this nature. It is performed as an outpatient treatment and typically takes around 2 – 3 hours (depending on the quantity of fat that is being removed and grafted). Liposuction will be performed first to remove fat from certain areas of the body, including the thighs, flanks, and lower back. The extracted fat is purified in a sterile centrifuge system. It is during this time the prepared fat is carefully harvested and placed into syringes. Next, is the injection phase, where the healthy fat tissue is injected in layers and then carefully massaged to make sure the surface is even and smooth. This step may be repeated numerous times until the desired fullness has been attained.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
After a Brazilian butt lift, you will be sent home to recover. Remember there are separate sections of the body that need to be monitored — where the fat was liposuctioned and your enhanced buttocks. In both places, there will be some swelling and bruising. It is important to not place any weight on the buttocks for around two weeks after surgery. As soon as the swelling has subsided, results are visible, but, usually, the full outcome is seen in around 4 – 6 weeks. Your buttocks will appear curvaceous and shapelier. In addition, the area(s) that had liposuction will be smaller to enhance the new curves of your butt.
