Brazilian Butt Lift

Butt Lift | Brazilian Butt Lift | Salt Lake City

A Brazilian Butt Lift can help give you a more shapely and rounder buttock making your clothes fit better and you feel better. A Brazilian Butt Lift is a form of buttock augmentation (gluteoplasty) surgery where fat is removed from one part of the body and relocated to a more desirable location.

A Brazilian Butt Lift goes by many other names: microfat grafting, autologous fat grafting, and the Brazilian Butt Lift, but the basic premise is the same: removal of fat from undesired places placing it where it will create a rounder, more shapely buttock.

Am I a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Those who are in good physical health and who would like to have rounder, more shapely derrieres are excellent candidates for this procedure. Ideal candidates are those who have excess fat stores to donate to the procedure.

The Procedure

A Brazilian Butt Lift procedure typically lasts from two to four hours. Dr. Rodrigues will perform extensive liposuction throughout the body, most often in the abdomen, the love handles, the inner and outer thighs, and the lower back. The removed fat is strained to remove excess oils and serum, then reinjected in the desired location through very small incisions in the buttocks. The incisions are then closed and sterile dressings are applied.


Recovery from this type of procedure generally takes two to three weeks followed by several more weeks of limited activity. You should avoid exercise until Dr. Rodrigues clears you to do so.

Dr. Rodrigues will personally consult with you to help you decide whether a Brazilian Butt Lift is the best option for your desired result.
