Brazilian Butt Augmentation
Genetic factors can make enhancing your natural curves difficult – or even impossible – through exercise alone. For this reason, Brazilian butt augmentation in St. Louis, often called a Brazilian butt lift, can be used to give you the shape you were meant to have. Through a combination of liposuction and fat injection techniques, this procedure creates rounder, more prominent buttocks and an improved waist-to-hip ratio.

This procedure is best suited for individuals who want to increase the fullness of their buttocks. At our practice in St. Louis, a Brazilian butt augmentation involves 2 steps: collecting unwanted fat from other areas of the body, such as the flanks, abdomen, back or thighs, and then injecting that fat into the buttocks. Unlike butt implants, this technique allows for better overall contouring, since liposuction is used to streamline body contours. As a result, men or women who have very little body fat may not be good candidates for this procedure.
The liposuction phase of butt augmentation can be performed under a local or general anesthetic. Dr. Lund prefers to use Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) for most patients because it is gentler than traditional liposuction and allows for more precise body sculpting.
After the fat has been collected, it is purified and then injected into the buttocks to enhance shape and volume. Usually, Dr. Lund uses several injections at various depths to achieve an even, well-proportioned shape.

It's best to avoid sitting or lying on your back for 2 to 3 weeks after surgery for optimal results. Some discomfort, bruising or swelling is normal during the first several days following the procedure. You may be asked to wear a compression garment during your recuperation period to minimize swelling and to help ensure smooth, even contours. While experiences vary, most of our patients can resume normal activities within about 4 weeks.
A Brazilian butt augmentation can be a very rewarding procedure that provides a rounder, firmer, curvier shape. Although not all of the injected fat will be retained, most of it will. This means that you can enjoy long-lasting results if you manage your weight properly. For enhanced effects, some women also choose breast augmentation to complete their new look.
