Brazilian Butt Lift



Brazilian Butt Lift is a term referencing fat transfer to the buttocks. A Brazilian Butt Lift involves contouring the waist, hips and abdomen using liposuction to extract fat and inject it into the buttocks area. The result is a curvy and shapely back side. The Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to enhance the shape and the contour of the buttocks.

The Consult

During your initial Brazilian Butt Lift consultation with Dr. Fazilat, he will discuss the options and alternatives in great detail, providing you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about the Brazilian Butt Lift. The site of the incisions will also be discussed prior to your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.

Pre Operative

Our Cosmetic Consultant can provide you with information on pre-operative Brazilian Butt Lift care, recovery, local accommodations, and answer any other questions related to your procedure and stay in the Morgan Hill / Cupertino / Palo Alto / Mountain View, CA area. If you are traveling from outside the US, we highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance.

Once you have booked your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, Dr. Fazilat’s office will coordinate the location and time of your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery. You will receive a pre-operative appointment, which is typically two weeks before your surgery. During this appointment, you will be given instructions for your surgery, as well as any medical request forms for necessary blood work or related medical tests. Dr. Fazilat will also take any pre-operative photos and review your planned procedure(s) so you can ask any final questions. Our office will contact you by phone or by email to review your instructions and your health history.

After your pre-operative appointment, if you have any questions regarding your instructions, you can contact our office by phone or email us at any time. General Surgery instructions can also be found in Patient Resources of our website.

About The Operation

Brazilian Butt Lift surgery is a common procedure that Dr. Fazilat performs in his practice. Typically, operations are performed as an out-patient procedure under general anesthesia with a board certified anesthesiologist; surgical times are 2 to 3.5 hours.

During the surgery, Dr. Fazilat will make several small incisions in order to harvest the fat. Once the fat has been harvested it is allowed to sit and separate out. The separated fat is then injected in the desired/planned area to achieve an aesthetically pleasing buttock.

Some of Dr. Fazilat’s patients also have their Brazilian Butt Lift surgery combined with other procedures, such as a breast augmentation, breast lift, a Mommy Makeover, or liposuction for a more beautiful overall appearance.


After Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, our patients are encouraged to walk the evening of their surgery to prevent possible blood clots. Patients are placed in a form fitting compression garment, which is to be worn for 2 weeks. Patients can typically return to work within 7 to 10 days, though strenuous activity should be avoided for 4 weeks. The patient should also have an adult stay with them for 24 hours following the surgery to monitor their recovery.

Sutures are removed one week after the procedure. Any post-operative pain, swelling and/or sensitivity will commonly diminish over the first few weeks. Finally, scars from incisions begin to fade in a few months but the final result may take up to a year to become evident.

Dr. Fazilat will schedule a follow-up post-recovery office visit to discuss your progress.
