Achieve a More Sensual Figure with a Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift is a type of buttock augmentation procedure that gives body contouring patients more youthful, fuller, perkier buttocks and a more sensual silhouette. Dr. Michael Devlin performs Brazilian butt lift procedure in Little Rock, AR, by utilizing patients' own fat in a safe way that creates natural-looking results. Fat is often taken from troublesome areas such as the "love handles." By removing fat from this area helps to accentuate the profile of the buttocks and dramatically improving those curves that most women want. Fat can also be taken from the abdomen and thigh area. This fat is then processed and transferred to the buttocks. Approximately 30% to 50% of the fat transferred will stay permanently. Occasionally more than one augmentation will be required to achieve the desired result.
How the Procedure Can Improve Contours and Confidence
A Brazilian butt lift comes with several advantages, including:
- Perkier, younger-looking buttocks
- Slimming effect in area where fat is removed, such as the abdomen, waist, or thighs
- No implants required which means less chance of developing post-surgical complications
- Can be customized to the amount of fullness in the buttocks that you desire

Understanding More About the Procedure
The Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic contouring procedure that takes excess fat from one area of the body, such as the abdomen, waist, back, or thighs; and transfers the harvested fat to reshape and enhance the buttocks.
Contouring begins with liposuction in the areas around the buttocks to make them stand out more. Fat is then harvested from other areas, such as the abdomen, thighs, and back. Small amounts of purified fat are then injected into different areas of the buttocks at various depths to ensure the most natural-looking results. The procedure usually involves hundreds of micro fat injections.
How Long Will Recovery Take?
After a Brazilian butt lift, patients often wear a compression garment and should not sit on their buttocks for about one to two weeks. After that, patients should avoid sitting for long periods, such as at a desk at work, for several more weeks. Most patients can resume exercise after about six to eight weeks.

A portion of the donated fat will provide results, but some will be reabsorbed. Generally after about two to three months, final results become apparent. Although natural aging will change the shape of anyone's body over time, the results can best be maintained by keeping a stable and healthy weight. Exercising is the best way to maintain your results. Exercises such as lunges are usually the best to firm and strengthen the buttocks muscles. Activities such as yoga are also extremely beneficial. Dramatic weight changes are the most substantial factors that can alter a patient's results. You should quit smoking and using e-cigarettes at least six weeks prior to the fat grafting procedure, and for at least three month after surgery to help ensure the survival of the grafted fat.
