The Brazilian butt lift is a type of butt augmentation procedure which results in youthful, prominent, perky buttocks and a more sensual body profile. New York City area candidates who are best fit for the procedure include both women and men who have a flat, sagging buttocks or a massive weight loss that has changed the shape of the buttocks. The procedure uses the patient’s own fat, so it is the most natural way to augment the buttocks. Over the last few years, the buttocks have received more press coverage than ever before. Manhattan plastic surgeon, Dr. Dana Khuthaila, has performed the Brazilian butt lift procedure on people of all ages with a particular focus on giving patients the maximum amount of volume in their buttocks.
"22 Year Old Unhappy with Profile of the Nose - I always felt that my profile was missing something but I didn't know what I wanted to correct. I realized after taking countless profile selfies that the tip of my nose was lacking perky-ness (If that any makes sense). I've thought about having a rhinoplasty to correct it but I didn't want to break my nose in the process being that all I wanted was structure to the tip. Dr.Khuthaila recommended we try a non surgical temporary treatment and we proceed from there. I was amazed with how quickly and instantly the results were! My nose has the perfect uplift I was looking for and she saved me from going under the knife when it truly was not necessary. The result is exactly what I wanted and I cannot thank her enough for all her help and support. <3 "- S. / RealSelf / Apr 06, 2017

"I met Dr. Khuthaila through a mutual friend. I have been thinking for a couple years how much I would love to have a breast reduction. Where do you start? Something like this you want to be able to trust in your doctor. Also to know that your doctor is listening to your wants. I found Dr. Kuthaila to be a very dedicated and truly passionate about what she does for people. Plus she listens! I am from Connecticut and was willing to travel into New York so that I could have her do my surgery. I was a bit apprehensive about this , but her location is so easy to get to and out of New York. I started the process and was worried about my insurance coverage from someone out of network. The office people where so helpful and I got my OK. Then we set up date and time and they even booked my hotel for me! Really there was nothing to worry about. Now to the results. I am so happy with the way I look and feel!! No more neck and back pain! Can I say I haven't been this perky since I was 18 years old!! There is a lot to say about being really secure in your choice of surgeons. I would highly recommend Dr. Khuthaila."- L.M. / Yelp / Sep 29, 2017
During the initial consultation, the body will be assessed so that it can be determined where to perform liposuction in order to extract the necessary amount of fat needed to perform the transfer. Multiple donor sites may be considered. The fat will be removed and grafted for a healthy, effective transfer. It will then be injected through a syringe into the buttocks. This process will take place over several steps, and many layers may be used until the desired result is achieved. The incisions from a Brazilian butt lift are very small and thus scarring after the procedure is minimal.
A Brazilian butt lift is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete depending on how many donor sites are used and how many layers it takes to achieve the desired fullness. Following surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas as well as on the buttocks. Patients will find it difficult to sit, but are encouraged to do so once the swelling has subsided. It will take about 3 full months for the body to recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs
If the injections are done correctly, the result will look and feel natural. During the procedure, additional liposuction may be used to help smooth out uneven skin, as well as ensure that the surface has a correct and even contour. It is important to find a reputable and highly-skilled surgeon with a special expertise in performing the Brazilian butt lift surgery.
Fat Transfer or Implants?
Both techniques are commonly used by cosmetic surgeons and can achieve good results. Some patients simply do not want a foreign device in their body and feel that the fat transfer method is safe and natural. A disadvantage of fat transfers, however, is that they may not last as long as an implant. Some of the injected fat will absorb naturally into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique during the consultation so the right decision can be made.
Weight gain could compromise the results of the surgery. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
