When fat is inserted to add fullness in the buttocks, the procedure is sometimes called a“ Brazilian butt lift”.

What is the purpose of a butt lift or Brazailian butt lift?

Most people who decide to have a surgical lifting or fat transfer do so to enhance the shape of their buttocks or desire a more symmetrical look. In this procedure, Dr. Bailey develops increased roundness or enhances the projection of the buttocks. Often our patients express how important this is for their self-image and in the way others view them.
