4 Requirements to Meet to Get a Brazilian Butt Lift

By: Dr. Paul Pearce


A Brazilian butt lift is a type of cosmetic surgery to improve the shape and size of your buttocks using fat from your own body. 

Dr. Pearce takes unwanted fat from your thighs, abdomen, or another area and transfers it into your buttocks to improve fullness and enhance your natural contours. 

If you want a more dramatic outcome for your lift, Dr. Pearce can combine liposuction with butt implants to achieve your desired results. Requirements to meet for Brazilian butt lift Before any type of surgery, you must make the most informed decisions about your health before moving forward. Dr. Pearce spends time reviewing your medical history, your existing health, and your expectations for results from the procedure. 

To qualify for a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Pearce also ensures you meet specific requirements, including:

1. Be fit and healthy To tolerate and ensure the best possible outcome of Brazilian butt lift surgery, you should already exercise to stay fit and eat a healthy diet. If you’re not currently at a healthy body weight, you may need to delay a butt lift. Significant weight loss or gain after surgery can affect your buttocks’ results and appearance. 

2. Be a nonsmoker Smoking can cause complications that affect your health during and after surgery. If you smoke, consider quitting for good by following a smoking cessation plan. Not only does stopping smoking benefit you before and after surgery, but quitting for good also offers long-term benefits for your overall health. 

3. Have sufficient fat for transfer To have enough fat to enhance the shape and size of your buttocks, Dr. Pearce must ensure that a fat transfer is possible. If there’s not enough fat in your body to liposuction out, Dr. Pearce can discuss your options for using implants instead. 

4. Can follow recovery guidelines After a Brazilian butt lift, you’ll need several months of recovery time to help your body heal. Part of your recovery includes not sitting for long periods for at least 2-3 months. You must also wear a compression garment around your backside to prevent swelling and bruising. Most people also need help with their day-to-day responsibilities during recovery. You may be unable to do housework or cook for yourself, especially in the early days of your recovery. 

If you meet the requirements for having a Brazilian butt lift, schedule a consultation at Pearce Plastic Surgery to find out if you’re a candidate for the procedure. You can call the office or book an appointment online today.
