Benefits of a Brazilian butt lift.
There’s a reason Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Scarpidis’ patients routinely request the Brazilian butt lift by name. When performed by a leading plastic surgeon, it comes with a host of appealing benefits, including:
- A lifted new butt that looks and feels natural – especially when compared to the results associated with butt implants and artificial
- A slim, shapely and more attractive overall body contour, thanks to the strategic removal of fat from other areas of the body.
- A less-invasive procedure when compared to butt implants, which allows for less risks and a swift recovery period.
- It’s an all-natural procedure that uses your body’s own fat as a filler, rather than artificial materials.
The Brazilian butt lift procedure.
Your NYC Brazilian butt lift will be performed in the comfort of Dr. Scarpidis’ private office under local anesthesia, which means you’ll be awake, but you won’t be able to feel anything. To begin, he will perform his safely-administered NYC liposuction to remove unwanted fat from your abdomen, love handles, thighs or back, depending on which problem area has a sufficient amount of excess volume present. From there, he will purify the collected fat cells, preserving the whole and cleansed ones for the transfer. As the final step of the procedure, Dr. Scarpidis will re-inject the purified fat cells into meticulously selected areas on your buttocks, artfully sculpting the firm, round and contoured behind you desire.
What to expect during recovery.
You’ll be able to return home immediately after your NYC butt augmentation surgery to begin the healing process, though we recommend making sure a friend or family member can stay with you during the first few days, as your activity will be quite limited. During that time, you should get plenty of rest, stay hydrated and avoid sitting directly on your butt for the first three weeks. Instead, sleep on your stomach or sides. In addition, you’ll need to wear a specialized pressure garment 24 hours a day (except while showering) for the first two weeks to preserve your optimal results.

Are you a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?
If you want to enhance and add youthful volume to your buttocks, while eliminating excess fat in another area of your body, the Brazilian butt lift may be precisely the procedure you’ve been looking for. To be considered an ideal candidate, you should be a non-smoker, in good overall health and near your ideal body weight. In addition, your “problem areas” should feature an adequate amount of body fat that Dr. Scarpidis can use for the procedure.
Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ
If you are considering a Brazilian Butt Lift, you probably have questions. We have assembled some of the most common questions from our patients – but we are happy to meet with you and discuss the procedure with you personally.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift painful?
After the procedure, you will experience some degree of soreness. The level of pain is not significant, and is easily managed with pain medication that will be prescribed to you.
You will be able to walk around shortly after your Manhattan butt lift, but will have to avoid sitting for about three weeks from the time of the procedure so that the area can heal properly. You can typically expect some temporary numbness, bruising, swelling, and soreness in the fat harvest and injection areas. The procedure itself is not painful, as anesthetic is used for patient comfort.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift a superior procedure to implants?
The Brazilian Butt Lift is the right procedure for those who have sufficient fat donor areas from which to harvest the fat cells for injection into the buttocks.
It is superior for these patients as the fat is easily tolerated with no problems with rejection.
Patients with insufficient fatty deposits are not candidates for the treatment, and can re-sculpt the buttocks with implants as an alternative. One advantage is that the procedure not only enhances the size, shape, and lifted appearance of the behind, but unwanted fat deposits are removed.
What areas of the body will be used for fat harvest?
The typical areas from which unwanted fat will be harvested are the waist, thighs, and lower back. This procedure has the advantage of not only creating a fuller, plump behind, but slimming down areas that have developed unattractive fat deposits, such as love handles or bulging thighs.
