Brazilian Butt Lift (Butt Augmentation)
What is the Brazilian Butt Lift?
It is said that Jennifer Lopez has done for the rear end what Pamela Anderson has done for the front end. Over the last few years the buttocks and abdomen have received more press coverage than ever before.
The brazilian butt lift is a type of butt augmentation procedure which results in a youthful, prominent, perky buttocks and a more sensual body profile. The procedure uses your own fat , so it is the most natural way to augment your buttocks. People of all ages are having the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
My butt is too flat! I want round, prominent, and perky buttocks.
Dr. Rodriguez removes fat from selected areas of your body, purifies the fat, then reinjects selected donor fat cells into your buttocks. The process of fat reinjection involves hundreds of injections. The procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttocks so that the butt appears lifted and perky. The resulting effect is that the woman's profile appears more attractive and sensuous.
All about big butts?
While a prominent butt is usually the goal in mind, it's not just about getting the biggest butt possible. Dr. Rodriguez wrote this blog post more than 7 years ago and he believes it still holds true: The Brazilian Butt is not Just about Big Butts!
Techniques for Butt Augmentation
The buttocks can be augmented with your own fat or with butt implants. Dr. Rodriguez believes the Brazilian Butt Lift technique is superior to butt implants. Dr. Rodriguez uses only the Brazilian Butt Lift Technique with natural fat grafting. He no longer uses butt implants, because they have a higher complication rate and the results are not as good as the Fat Injection technique.
He believes that the Brazilian Butt Lift method results in the most natural and sensual look for the buttock area. You not only get a more shapely buttock, but the area liposuctioned is now much leaner, giving your profile a more sensuous look. Dr. Rodriguez prefers the brazilian butt lift, as the combination of liposuction and fat injections produces the most attractive and natural profile.
How is the fat injected into the buttocks?
The buttock is first contoured by performing liposuction in the areas around the buttocks to make them stand out more. Common areas liposuctioned include the back- directly above the butt, the stomach, and the thighs. Note that even the liposuction alone will give your lower body a more attractive look.
The fat suctioned from these areas is carefully processed and purified such that only a fraction of the donor fat removed will qualify for re-injection to the buttocks. In order to get enough qualified fat, Dr. Rodriguez must liposuction at least two areas of your body, and preferably three areas. After liposuction, Dr. Rodriguez carefully purifies the fat so that only the best donor fat cells are reinjected back into your buttocks for augmentation. The fat is placed or transferred to the buttocks in hundreds of injections with special cannulas.
Dr. Rodriguez injects small amounts of purified fat into different areas of the buttocks and at various depths so that the patient will get the highest permanent absorption rate. Thus, the procedure usually involves hundreds of micro fat injections. Correct injection methods are essential to achieve a uniform, smooth, natural appearance to the buttocks.
Where can I learn more about Dr. Rodriguez's Brazilian Butt Lift technique?
Dr. Rodriguez explains the details of his technique in his Brazilian Butt Lift technique video.
How long do the fat injections last?
If the fat is harvested, processed, and injected correctly, the result should be long lasting. The procedure should not require touch ups or a second round of fat injections. Please read Dr. Rodriguez's personal blog about why fat injections are permanent when done correctly. The brazilian butt lift result is highly dependent upon the experience of the surgeon. Surgeons who are not using correct purification or injection methods will not obtain long lasting results. Be sure that your surgeon is experienced in this procedure!
How popular is the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?
When can I go back to work after the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?
Following the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, you must not sit directly on your buttocks for up to three weeks. This allows the best take of the fat graft in your buttocks and ensures the most long lasting result. You must wear a special garment (to control swelling) for two weeks. There may be a small amount of swelling for up to 6 weeks. However, you should be able to resume all normal activities at 4 weeks post op.

Our office will also provide courtesy transport from the BWI airport to your hotel. To read more about accommodations for out of town patients, please read our out of town patient section.
What is the cost of the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The average toal cost of butt augmentation with fat injections, averages $15,000-$19,000. Keep in mind that you also get a complete body resculpting (abdomen and flanks) with this procedure, and the procedure takes 6-8 hours. Thus, this fee includes multiple areas of liposuction plus hundreds of micro fat injections to the buttocks. Fees quoted include the physician's fee, anesthesia, hospital costs, post operative nursing care, and all post operative office visits. You should not have to return for any additional injections. Dr. Rodriguez has a very special fat injection technique to ensure long lasting results.
The fee varies slightly depending on the amount of fat which needs to be extracted in order to achieve the desired result. Dr. Rodriguez will determine the number of areas which need to be liposuctioned in order to achieve your goal. This is discussed at length in your consultation. Many patients finance all or part of their procedure. Please see our financing section for more information or call the office.
Can the procedure be done quicker or cheaper?
There are other surgeons performing "fat injection to the buttocks" for a lower cost, but be sure to ask them if their results are permanent or what percentage of their patients require a second 'touch up' procedure ! When the technique is done too quickly (with too much fat injected at one time) or incorrectly, the fat grafts do not get the adequate blood supply required for a permanent 'take'. In this case, chances are that some of the fat grafting will NOT last. Be sure to compare apples to apples.
