Before & After Brazilian Butt Lifts
Dr. Lacerna at LA Plastic Surgery in Sarasota & Bradenton offers the Brazilian Butt Lift, a plastic surgery procedure which will enhance the appearance of your buttocks through a fat transplant method.
This procedure helps you maximize your body contouring results, since the region where fat was removed will appear more toned while your buttocks will become more full, round, and perky.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift
Fat grafting from elsewhere in the body into the buttocks is a much better long-term solution because once the fat has successfully taken in the buttock, it is there for good. The operation can usually be done in less than 4 hours, depending on how many areas have to be liposuctioned. The recovery time is usually 2-4 weeks before 100% normal activity can be resumed. This is a very popular procedure and demand for it is very high.
The Best Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift
In order to achieve desired results, the transplanted fat cells must not be disturbed by trauma or pressure for several weeks following surgery. Therefore, you will not be able to sit or lie on your buttocks for about six weeks. Ideal candidates for this surgery must be able to handle the inconvenience of not being able to sit or lie on their buttocks for this period of time.
Anyone who is overall healthy, who wants to improve the appearance of their buttocks, trunks and lower bodies are excellent candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift. Some amount of body fat must be present in the abdomen, backs or thighs, as these are the common “donor” sites. Very thin patients with minimal body fat may be candidates for gluteal augmentation with implants instead, or may be advised by their plastic surgeon to gain 10-15 pounds before surgery.
