The Brazilian butt lift, also known as buttock augmentation with fat grafting, is fast becoming one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed at our Weston, Florida office. But the Brazilian butt lift isn’t just popular in and around Miami, it is increasingly popular throughout the country.
In 2013, there were 9,993 buttock augmentations with fat grafting performed by board-certified plastic surgeons in the United States. By 2016, that number had almost doubled, with 18,489 people choosing Brazilian butt lift surgery for the natural augmentation of their backsides.
Brazilian butt lift surgery is great if your butt exhibits some cosmetic flaws, such as:
- Sagging skin and tissue
- Asymmetrical cheeks
- Disproportionately small in size
- Flat in appearance despite exercise
- A loss of shape after significant weight loss
If you are unhappy with your backside, it is possible that a Brazilian butt lift could restore the full, firm, and ideally contoured buttocks you desire. The best way to determine if this is the case for you is through a private and confidential consultation with board-certified Weston plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Harrell. During this consultation, Dr. Harrell will listen to your concerns and evaluate the condition of your buttocks to help you determine if you can achieve natural looking results with the Brazilian butt lift or if another procedure would be better for your needs.

Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Buttock Augmentation
In many ways, a Brazilian butt lift is buttock augmentation. However, augmentation more often refers to the placement of implants for the enhancement of the derriere. There are a number of problems with buttock implants, not the least of which is their tendency to shift and float. Because buttock implants are not fixed in place, they can shift to produce undesirable contours. They can also be rejected by the body and may increase risks of serious complication following buttock augmentation. These problems are eliminated entirely or greatly reduced when augmentation is performed with your own fat.
Fat harvested from your body is unlikely to be rejected following placement in the buttocks. By using your own fat, risks of implant rotation and shift are also eliminated. These two benefits alone make the Brazilian butt lift a better solution for the natural augmentation of the buttocks. When performed by an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Harrell, the results achieved through natural buttock augmentation can be significant – and may even help restore ideal contours to the entire midsection of the body.
Dr. Harrell is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over two decades of experience. Caring, committed, and respected, Dr. Harrell takes time to fully understand each patient’s needs before suggesting the most suitable treatment. If you are not happy with your contours, be they too plentiful or lacking, Dr. Harrell welcomes an opportunity to meet with you and discuss your needs, and to help you choose the procedures best suited to produce the results you desire.
