What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure in which Dr. DeRoberts or Dr. Armenta remove fat cells from certain areas of the body through liposuction. These usually include the stomach, love handles, and lower back. They then transfers the fat to the buttocks to give it more fullness and lift. Dr. DeRoberts and Dr. Armenta never places fat in the muscle as recommended by all major organizations – safety is our #1 priority.
Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates
Candidates include those who have adequate fat cells to harvest from their body, are in good health, and desire greater roundness and fullness of their buttocks.
“Dr. DeRobert’s was honest and professional. He explained every detail of my procedure before surgery, and did an excellent job! I am very happy with the work he did, and highly recommend him!”
Butt Lift Procedure
During your consultation with Dr. DeRoberts or Dr. Armenta, he will discuss with you the best areas to transfer fat cells from to enhance your over all contour. Dr. DeRoberts and Dr. Armenta prefers removing fat cells from the stomach, love handles, and lower back because, as a result of removing fat in those areas, his patients will see a narrowing of their waistline while enhancing their natural curves and the buttocks.
Dr. DeRoberts or Dr. Armenta will harvest the removed fat cells. They are then carefully separated and purified before reimplementation. The fat cells are then placed carefully in the buttocks to give it more fullness and shape. The amount of fat injected depends upon the amount harvested and the needs and desires of the patient (up to 1000cc per side). Although all of the fat cells do not survive, often 60-70% of the fat grafted remains permanently in the buttocks and behave just like the natural fat cells there. The patient is under anesthesia through small incisions that need only 1 stitch to close each.
