What to Expect During Your Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery


As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Passaretti is committed to providing patients with natural-looking and safe results using advanced technology and a highly personalized approach. During a Brazilian butt lift surgery at his office in Darien, CT, Dr. Passaretti creates a long-lasting curvature with tissue from other parts of your body rather than implants. Consequently, the procedure doubles as a way of removing stubborn pockets of unwanted fat. Dr. Passaretti will provide detailed recovery instructions to help you maintain the best results possible.

Preparing for Surgery

During your consultation, Dr. Passaretti will assess your areas of concern and determine how to achieve the most natural-looking, proportionate results. If you have an athletic build, you may choose to accentuate the roundness of your rear by placing fat at the sides. Adding fat to the central and upper regions of your rear can improve lift and perkiness while addressing flatness or sagging. Every surgery is tailored to your areas of concern, as well as desired curvature and volume.

Patients should be in good overall health leading up to the procedure. It is also important to keep in mind that because a Brazilian butt lift is not a weight loss surgery, patients should already be close to their ideal weight.

On the Day of Your Surgery

Prior to beginning your procedure, Dr. Passaretti will place you under general anesthesia or IV sedation so you can sleep during the procedure. However, you will need a trusted friend or family member to drive you home after surgery. You should plan to take two to three weeks off work to recover most effectively.

Graphic of the recovery process: week one to six months.
Recovery is typically split into several distinct stages. While patients can return to their normal routine soon after surgery, it can take up to six months to completely heal. 

Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Implants

Instead of using implants, Dr. Passaretti performs minimally invasive liposuction on the abdomen and thighs to redefine your buttocks. By using your own tissue rather than an outside source, we can reduce the amount of fat in stubborn areas that do not respond to diet or exercise. Your body is able to integrate with your own tissue more easily than implants, giving you more realistic results. Furthermore, because the tissue is from your body, the risk of infection or rejection is significantly reduced.

A study completed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that over 70 percent of grafted fat stayed in place over a long period following butt augmentation.

During the procedure, Dr. Passaretti will make small incisions in the targeted areas and insert a thin tube to precisely extract fat tissue. Once removed, Dr. Passaretti will place the extracted cells in a centrifuge which will separate the viable fat tissue from other cells. He will then take the purified fat cells and inject them into your buttocks in layers to create a more natural-looking effect., including:

  • Smooth contours
  • Natural-looking curves
  • No bumps or lumps

With the transferred fat in place, you can have more pronounced curves and an overall more contoured silhouette that can last for a long time with proper care. In fact, a study completed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that over 70 percent of grafted fat stayed in place over a long period following butt augmentation.
