What is a Brazilian butt lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a surgical procedure in which injections of fat taken from elsewhere in the body (fat grafting) are injected into the buttocks to create a more prominent and shapelier bottom. Usually, the fat is harvested from the thighs or abdomen by liposuction, and it is then processed and purified before it is injected. The procedure may include liposuction to some portions of the buttocks to help create a defined, toned look.

What is a buttock lift (butt lift)?
A buttock lift (butt lift) is a surgical procedure that lifts and reshapes the buttocks to create a firmer, more youthful-looking derriere. Some people whose bottom has started to sag or who have lost a great deal of weight and are left with pendulous, sagging skin can benefit from this procedure. In a buttock lift procedure, your surgeon will make an incision across the top of the buttocks and remove excess skin and fat, and then reshape the area before closing the incision.

What are butt implants, and what are they made of?
Butt implants are pieces of solid silicone that can provide more prominence to a flat bottom. The implants are inserted either under the gluteus maximus muscle or under the skin and connective tissue on top of that muscle. The implants come in several shapes and sizes. Unlike breast implants, they cannot leak or rupture because they are solid silicone.

How soon will the results of my butt augmentation surgery show?
Pretty much immediately. There will be swelling after all three types of buttock augmentation procedures, but the results will be immediate, and the full results can be seen after the swelling resolves.

How long will it take me to recover after butt augmentation procedure?
Recovery periods for both butt implants and a buttock lift are perhaps the longest of any cosmetic procedure. For both, not only will you be doing most of your recovery flat on your stomach, you may need someone to stay with you and help you around the house for a few days after your procedure.

Recovery is shortest for a Brazilian butt lift (fat injections), where you can sit for short periods the day after your procedure. But for both butt implants and a buttock lift, expect to stay on your stomach most of the time for at least a week. Most people can return to work a week after fat injections, but it will be at least 2 weeks after either butt implants or a buttock lift. Your surgeon will give you specific advice for when you can resume your usual activities.
