Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Permanent?

Do you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your bum? Whether you think your bum is too flat or you just want to have a better shape, it can be tough to get the body shape you want by only doing certain exercises. Fortunately, the expert surgeons at DFW Center for Aesthetics and Cosmetic Surgery in Southlake, TX know that a Brazilian butt lift can help you get the results you want.

A Brazilian butt lift is a plastic surgery procedure that alters the size and shape of the buttocks. Usually, this surgery is performed with a fat transfer from other areas of the body, but there may be other methods that can be used to help you realize your ideal butt shape. But how long does this surgery last? Learn more about this procedure before you call to schedule your consultation.

Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Permanent?

No, this plastic surgery does not produce permanent results. Like many other cosmetic procedures, the results of this surgery will be semi-permanent. The natural aging process, your lifestyle choices, and your genetics may all be reasons why your results will only be semi-permanent.

That said, you can expect the results of this procedure to last for several years. Most people can expect results that range from five to 10 years, particularly if they make lifestyle choices that will help maintain results. If you take care of your results, you can enjoy the shape of your body for several years. A few ways you can maintain your results include:

Weight Management

The best way to manage your results is to manage your weight. Your goal should be to avoid gaining any fat in the buttocks after you have achieved your results, as additional body fat will mask your results and place more gravity on your buttocks. You should aim at not gaining more than 10 to 15 pounds or more. While it’s normal for your weight to fluctuate five to 10 pounds each month because of water retention, sustaining more than 10 pounds of weight gain could mean you need to manage your weight better.

Managing your weight is best done by eating a balanced diet. In particular, you will want to be sure to pay attention to the types of fat you are eating; unsaturated fats are the best to include in your diet, while saturated fats should be eaten in moderation. It’s also important to avoid added sugars, simple carbohydrates, and processed foods, as these foods make it easier to gain weight.


Exercise is another important component for maintaining your results. You may want to focus on exercises for the lower body and buttocks, such as squats and lunges, to keep your buttocks toned. Full-body exercises like aerobic dancing, walking, jogging, swimming, and tai chi are also good for maintaining the overall shape of your body and managing your weight.

Overall, leading a healthy lifestyle is the best way to maintain your results. Activities like drinking alcohol in excess may make it easier to put on weight, which can undo your results. Healthier lifestyle choices can make it much easier to stick to an exercise routine and manage your weight through your diet. These healthier lifestyle choices will also help you feel better about your overall body shape.

What Else Do You Need To Know About This Procedure?

Brazilian butt lifts are effective procedures that can help you achieve your desired body shape so you can feel more confident. But what do you need to know about this procedure? Overall, the surgery will take a few hours to complete and the recovery period will take around a month, and in general, this procedure is less invasive than many other procedures.

There are a few different methods that can be used for a Brazilian butt lift. We will help you select the best method for you based on your desired aesthetic goals. For example, if you want to have a more contoured appearance, you may want to use a butt lift with implants rather than only a fat transfer. Some of your treatment options will include:

Butt Lift With Fat Transfer

A butt lift performed with a fat transfer is the most common method for this procedure. For this procedure, unwanted fat from other areas of the body, such as the thighs or abdomen, is harvested with liposuction and then prepared for injection into targeted areas of the buttocks. The biggest benefit of a fat transfer butt lift is the natural-looking results. Patients also choose a fat transfer butt lift because it removes unwanted fat in other areas, making it easier to achieve a full-body contour at one time.

Butt Lift With Implants

A butt lift with implants is different than a Brazilian butt lift, which only uses fat transfer to achieve a more natural result. Implants can achieve a more drastic result, so this procedure is used to address contouring concerns, such as increasing the size or altering the shape of the buttocks. For your implants, you will be able to choose between round or oval silicone implants so you can have your ideal results.

Butt Lift With Sculpting

A butt lift with a liposculpture is a unique procedure that combines elements of a fat transfer butt lift and non-surgical butt lift techniques to sculpt the buttocks, as well as the waist and the thighs. This procedure is ideal if you want to improve the overall shape of your body while also contouring your butt to reach your aesthetic goals. If you have cellulite, unwanted fat around the waist, or loose skin from weight loss, a liposculpture butt lift is an ideal option for you.

Non-Surgical Butt Lift

You will also have the option of a non-surgical butt lift, which is a technique that is ideal for those who only want to achieve subtle results. This treatment works by harvesting the plasma from your blood and combining the plasma with a dermal filler, which is then injected directly into areas of your butt that you want to improve. Sometimes, an additional device can be used to tighten the skin and reduce cellulite on the buttocks for a smoother result.

Notably, the results of this technique will produce results that only last for a few months to a year. If you want to maintain the results of this treatment, you will likely need annual treatments once a year. Some patients like to use a non-surgical butt lift to test their desired aesthetic results before committing to plastic surgery.

How Soon Will You See Results?

You will likely be able to see the results of your butt lift procedure within a few weeks to one month depending on the treatment you are using. A non-surgical butt lift, for example, may be able to show results in as little as two weeks, while a fat transfer or implant procedure may take four to eight weeks to show final results.

What Is Your Recovery Like?

The recovery period after your butt lift procedure will depend on the specific technique used, but for the most part, most procedures will share the safe aftercare rules. The most important rule is to avoid sitting on your buttocks for at least two to three weeks after your procedure, except for going to the bathroom. Avoiding prolonged sitting will ensure that the shape of your buttocks will heal as desired. If you do have to sit, you will need to use a cushion.

During your recovery period, you will need to avoid strenuous exercise. Light activity is encouraged about one week after your procedure, such as walking or going back to work. About one month after your procedure, you will be able to resume moderate activity, such as longer walks or swimming. After about six to eight weeks, you should be able to resume your normal exercise routine, including any lower body exercises.
