Simply put, there is absolutely no difference between a Brazilian butt lift and a buttock augmentation with fat grafting.  The term “Brazilian butt lift” is just the popular term for fat grafting to the buttocks.  Be sure to research for a board certified plastic surgeon that has experience performing fat transfer procedures.

Be well and good luck!


Is There a difference between the 'Brazilian Butt Lift' and Buttocks Augmentation with Fat Grafting?

In a word - No! The Brazilian Butt Lift is really not even a lift at all. It is, at its core, simply an augmentation of the buttocks with fat. The fat is taken from another part of your body and transferred to the buttocks.Any apparent lifting from fat grafting is due to preferentially adding more fat to the upper rather than the lower part of the buttocks. In many patients most of the improvement is due to simply defining the buttocks better by sculpting away the fat surrounding the buttocks - such as the outer thigh, hips and lower back.

Thanks you for your question.  There is no difference - a Brazilian Butt Lift is a Buttocks Augmentation with fat.  There are many different terms out there for autologous fat transfer.  We refer to our autologous fat transfers as Natural Fill since it is your own fat being used to fill your buttocks, breasts, hands, or face.

Brazilian Butt Lift/ Buttock Augmentation with Fat Grafting

The term "Brazilian Butt Lift" is most commonly used to describe the technique of buttock augmentation with Autologous Fat Grafting.  Liposuction is performed to remove excess fat from around the buttock- frequently the back, flanks, thighs and abdomen, then the fat is transferred to the buttocks for enhancing volume and shape.
