It is a misnomer because allother lifts require cutting but the addiion of fat to the buttocks does fill it out and give the impression of being higher

Brazillian Butt Lift

Yes, fat transfer (fat grafting) to the buttocks is commonly called the Brazilian butt lift. Brazilian Butt Lift generally requires more fat to be transferred than other areas so there may be a price difference due to the complexity and amount of work for a Brazilian Butt Lift compared to a smaller fat transfer.

Brazilian Butt Lift Defined: Good Results and Great Results

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

You are basically correct. Fat transferred to the Buttocks is generally called a Brazilian Butt Lift. Some surgeons, including myself harvest fat in particular from the lower back to give it an S shaped contour that defines and sculpts the top of the buttocks giving it the illusion that it is bigger and definitely more shapely before the fat transfer is actually done. Similarly, sometimes fat is taken from the upper back of the thighs to also define the edge of the buttocks while taking care of what many women call the "banana rolls" as well as the "diamond" shape space that is attractive at the highest point of the inside of the thighs when viewed behind. Also the amount of fat that takes is highly technique dependent and experience dependent.

In other words there are many subtleties that make all the difference between a good result and a great result.  My suggestion is to go to a board certified plastic surgeon with significant experience in this technique.

Yes, Fat Transfer (or Fat Grafting) to the Buttocks is the same as the Brazilian Butt Lift.  The difference is that Fat can be transferred just about anywhere.  When it is transferred to the buttocks, it is commonly called the Brazilian Butt Lift.
