Brazilian Butt Lift
Increasingly popular across the country and at our Alpharetta, Roswell, and Woodstock offices, the Brazilian butt lift creates rounder, fuller buttocks using the patient’s own fat, harvested from another area of the body. Our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, performs this innovative procedure for individuals who want to add shape to their backside without implants.
Ideal Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates
People considering the Brazilian butt lift get the best of both worlds with this procedure. It slims other areas using liposuction and adds volume to the buttocks for an hourglass shape. An ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift has:
- Excellent skin elasticity in the buttocks area
- Enough fatty tissue available for liposuction
- Realistic expectations of the fat transfer
As with all elective surgeries, patients should be nonsmokers in good overall health with realistic expectations from the procedure.
Understanding Your Procedure
A Brazilian butt lift begins with harvesting fat from an area of the body where it’s unwanted using liposuction, which requires a few tiny incisions. After the fat is processed to remove impurities, Dr. Yalif re-injects it into the buttocks with a special syringe, layering the fat to produce optimal results. This process is referred to as fat transfer, and can be used for other areas of the body as well.
Dr. Yalif performs Brazilian butt lift surgery using general anesthesia at a fully accredited surgical facility. The procedure can take several hours, especially if he performs liposuction on multiple areas of the body. It’s typically an outpatient procedure, meaning patients return home on the day of surgery.
Dr. Yalif creates a customized surgical plan based on your cosmetic goals and the physical exam he performs during your consultation. It’s important to know that the Brazilian butt lift is a different procedure than a butt lift, which Dr. Yalif offers for patients with sagging buttocks skin.

Many patients choose a Brazilian butt lift because they want a natural look and feel, and do not want silicone implants. Dr. Yalif typically uses more fat than the patient needs for their desired look to account for the reabsorption of some of the fat.
During the recovery, you must avoid sitting down or laying on your back for 2 to 3 weeks. You can expect some swelling and bruising that gradually resolve on their own. You’ll likely see the final results after 6 to 8 weeks. You should also keep in mind that major fluctuations in weight can affect the longevity of your results.
If you’d like to look curvier in jeans or a swimsuit, we encourage you to learn more about the procedure by requesting a consultation with Dr. Yalif using the online form. Or you can call us directly at (404) 822-4402 to schedule an appointment.
