A: Brazilian buttock lift-risks

The risks of a Brazilian buttock lift are similar to those of liposuction. These include: infection, bleeding, contour irregularities, seromas (fluid collections under the skin), and asymmetry of the buttock. These risks are quite small, however they do exist. Patients can also develop blood clots in their legs during the surgery, which can last 2-3 hours. This is minimized significantly with the use of preventive measures such as compressive stockings placed on your legs during the surgery and early walking after surgery.

Not all of the fat that gets transferred to the buttock area will live, about 20-30% may end up shrinking and becoming somewhat hardened in certain areas.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to see if you are a good candidate for this procedure.

Best wishes,
