What Is Discussed During My Brazilian Butt Lift Consultation?
During your consultation, Dr. Agullo will:
- Discuss your wishes and expectations for your results
- Evaluate your buttocks and determine whether or not you have an adequate amount of fat to transfer
- Identify where the fat will be removed from
- Take measurements and photos
- Explain how to prepare for your Brazilian Butt Lift
What Does My Brazilian Butt Lift Include?
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a fat grafting procedure that uses three steps: liposuction, fat purification, and fat injection. Fat transfer is an advanced technique used to revamp body aesthetics as naturally as possible.
Liposuction of the Body
Liposuction is performed on problem areas to harvest fat for the transfer. This technique must be completed as gently as possible to maintain the health and structure of the fat cells. Common areas for fat removal include the abdomen, hips, back, and thighs. Skin tightening technologies like Renuvion™ J-Plasma® and BodyTite® can be used simultaneously to avoid sagging.
The harvested fat is then purified using a closed system to ensure the highest percentage of retention. Only the highest quality fat cells are used for fat injection because they are more likely to graft successfully.
Fat Transfer to the Buttocks
Once the fat has been purified, Dr. Agullo injects the fat into various regions of the buttocks. The fat is injected in thin, even layers for a smooth result. Often, a higher volume of fat is transferred than is necessary because not all of the fat will survive.
How Should I Prepare for My Brazilian Butt Lift?
Planning and preparation are essential for a quicker and smoother recovery. Before your Brazilian Butt Lift, you should:
- Stop smoking for at least six weeks, as this can increase your risk of complications like blood clots
- Avoid medication and herbal supplements that thin your blood for at least two weeks before your procedure
- Line up a family member or friend to drive you home after your procedure
- Do not eat or drink after midnight the day of your Brazilian Butt Lift
- Ensure that you have and bring your paperwork and identification
What Are Your Concerns?
What Can I Expect for My Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery?
Because the Brazilian Butt Lift utilizes fat grafting rather than butt implants, you can return to work in about one week. You will need to use a pillow when sitting to avoid applying pressure on your butt and disrupting the fat grafting process. You can resume your normal activities, including exercise, after four weeks.
You will not be able to sit after any butt augmentation surgery, and this is especially important to remember after a Brazilian Butt Lift. Sitting should be avoided for two weeks, and a BBL pillow should be used to keep pressure off the buttocks when sitting is necessary. Putting pressure on the fat graft disrupts the grafting process and can compromise your results.
Is My Brazilian Butt Lift Painful?
The Brazilian Butt Lift is performed with the assistance of anesthesia to ensure that there is no pain during or immediately following the procedure. Any residual discomfort stemming from the bruising and swelling can be lessened with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication.
Will My Brazilian Butt Lift Leave Scars?
Fat is injected through a thin needle. Therefore, there will be no visible scars on the buttocks. Since the transferred fat is harvested through liposuction, there may be small scars at the liposuction sites. Liposuction incisions will be placed in easy-to-conceal areas, and the scars will fade with time.
When Will I See My Brazilian Butt Lift Results?
Although you may notice immediate fullness, your final results will take weeks or months to finalize. This is because your body will absorb some of the fat following the transfer. Most patients see their buttocks stabilize after four weeks.

What Are Some Frequently Asked Questions About Brazilian Butt Lift?
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with the Brazilian Butt Lift. These risks include:
- Negative reactions to the anesthesia
- Unfavorable scarring at the liposuction sites
- Blood clots
- Fat embolism
You can reduce your chance of experiencing these complications by following all of Dr. Agullo’s pre- and post-surgical advice.
The Brazilian Butt Lift does come with serious risk when the procedure is not performed correctly by a skilled surgeon. These risks include embolism, which can be fatal. Dr. Agullo has years of experience performing the Brazilian Butt Lift and is knowledgeable of the correct methods and techniques required to ensure a safe procedure.
Dr. Agullo (aka Dr. WorldWide) is a member of the World Association of Gluteal Surgeons and adheres to the SAFER guidelines. Dr. Agullo does not inject fat into the muscle; he uses a large blunt cannula with vibration and stays away from the gluteal veins and sciatic nerve. By following these guidelines, the likelihood of a fat embolism is significantly reduced.
Buttock augmentation can be performed with the Brazilian Butt Lift or with the use of buttock implants. Butt implants add permanent volume to the butt. Still, they require more extensive incisions—meaning more significant scarring—and they do not contour the surrounding body areas the way that the Brazilian Butt Lift does.
Your body will absorb some of the fat initially after your Brazilian Butt Lift. The unabsorbed fat will augment your buttocks for many years as long as you main
Your Brazilian Butt Lift is combined with liposuction of at least one area of the body. If liposuction results in loose or lax skin, an additional body contouring procedures to create a smooth abdomen, slimmer thighs, and more defined arms can be beneficial. Some patients looking for maximum projection or who do not have sufficient fat opt to have a composite buttock augmentation, which combines buttock implants with fat grafting.
This is a tricky question. While gaining weight will allow Dr. Agullo to collect more volume of fat and transfer it to the buttocks, you must remain at your new higher weight permanently. If you lose weight and return to your previous weight, you will lose buttock volume. Some patients who do not have sufficient fat opt to have a composite buttock augmentation, which combines buttock implants with fat grafting. This allows them to remain at a healthy weight.
