What Happens After The Surgery?
Immediately after surgery, your butt will be large and swollen. All the fat that has been injected will be there, and you will be very swollen from the surgery itself. This will go away over the next few weeks and your butt will decrease in size. Over the next three months, some of the fat that has not survived is lost, so it really takes three months to see the final results.
It is very important to avoid sitting on your buttocks as much as possible in the first few weeks after surgery. In order to take direct pressure off the bottom, you should sleep on your stomach or on your sides. When sitting, try to have your weight placed on your thighs, rather than your buttocks. You should be up and walking the day following your surgery.To help improve the shape of the buttocks and expedite healing and minimize the amount of fluid formation, patients are often encourage to wear a compression garment for up to six weeks after the surgery.Dr. Jugenburg’s nurses will see you the day after your surgery and at specified intervals during the weeks that follow. This is done so that the staff can personally monitor your recovery process, and to ensure that you have the best results possible.

Can I Do Other Procedures At The Same Time?
Patients often ask if they can have multiple areas liposuctioned, in addition to the areas typically used for the Brazilian Butt Lift. Additional areas can be added, at additional cost. There is a maximum, however, of how much liposuction we will do at any one time. Dr. Jugenburg aims not to do more than 4 litres of liposuction in one session, as volumes >4 Litres are associated with increased complications. Another common question we get is whether or not we can do a Tummy Tuck and a Brazilian Butt Lift at the same time. Although it is technically possible, we do not recommend this combination. After a Tummy Tuck you need to rest on your back, in a flexed position. After a Brazilian Butt Lift, we want you to lie on your stomach. Thus combining these to procedures makes the recovery extremely uncomfortable.
Brazilian Butt Lift Versus Silicone But Implants
Prior to the Brazilian butt lift procedure, doctors were using silicone implants to reshape the buttocks. These implants had their share of risks and complications, and the results often didn’t look natural. But the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery offers many benefits over silicone implants, including:
- A more natural appearance – The Brazilian butt lift uses the patient’s own fatty deposits to reshape the buttocks, resulting in a more natural appearance.
- Less painful recovery – The Brazilian butt lift is less painful than butt implant surgery and is the smart choice for patients worried about painful and long recoveries.
- Minimal scarring – The Brazilian butt lift produce minimal scars; women are able to wear bikinis without showing an evidence of this cosmetic procedure.
- No implant-related complications – Complications from silicone implants include infection, displacement, visibility of the implant, leakage, ruptures and hardening of the implant. These complications are avoided with the Brazilian butt lift. Once fully healed, there are no future complications you need to worry about.
- Rounder, larger buttocks – The Brazilian butt lift allows doctors to create larger, fuller buttocks than with silicone implants, while helping to slim down the areas where there was an excess of fat.

First you will be given an anesthetic to make you relax and fall asleep. Next, the surgery takes place over 2-3 hours. There are two stages to the Brazilian butt lift procedure. First, excess fat is extracted from areas of your body using liposuction. The fat is purified in the operating room, and then injected into the buttocks. This helps to produce rounder, fuller buttocks. Generally, the procedure takes about two hours from start to finish.
Patients should be aware that the buttocks will be very sensitive for approximately 10 days following the procedure, and you will not be able to sit on your bottom during this time. Following this period, the sensitivity should subside and you will be able to resume your normal activities. Your buttocks will appear larger immediately after surgery and the final results will show about 3 months after the surgery has taken place.
One of the major benefits of the Brazilian butt lift procedure is that there are no major incisions. That means minimal scarring. Patients can be assured that they will be able to wear bikinis and other revealing clothing without showing scars.
Butt injections refer to injecting various substances such as silicone, Biogel PMMA and others. Only fat that is liposuctioned from the patient’s OWN body is injected during the Brazilian butt lift. Using anything else is extremely dangerous and illegal.
As with all cosmetic surgeries, there are some risks involved. These risks include bleeding, infection, and collection of fluid under the skin, swelling and blood clots. Our operating suite is state-of-the-art, and we do everything we can to minimize risks associated with surgery.
In a traditional butt lift, the doctor removes excess or sagging skin that is due to weight loss, gravity or the aging process. After making incisions, the skin over the buttocks is raised and tightened, making the buttocks look less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled. In the Brazilian Butt Lift, the patient’s own fat is injected into the buttocks, making them larger, rounder and shapelier. A Brazilian Butt Lift does not lift the butt, it reshapes it, thus it is not ideal for patient who need an actual lift of a saggy bum.
