Brazilian Butt Lift in Washington D.C.

Having a shapely, defined buttocks is becoming increasingly more popular. While exercise might be able to help you achieve some definition, it often cannot provide an adequate increase in size or custom shaping. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your buttocks and desire a fuller, more youthful look, then buttock enhancement might be right for you. The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) uses micro-fat grafting to add volume and sculpt curvy, shapely buttocks.

Benefits of Fat Grafting Over Implants

  • Harvests excess fat from your body’s fat stores, which provides more slender body contours in addition to enhancing your buttocks
  • Yields natural-looking results because it doesn’t use synthetic products
  • Results in a more realistic buttocks feel
  • Small incisions are placed in easily concealed places for almost no visible scarring
  • Achieves permanent augmentation results, whereas implants will eventually need to be replaced
  • Can be used regardless of butt shape or the patient’s ethnicity

What Are the Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

How Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?

Step 1: Fat Harvesting

The Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat taken from your body to augment your derrière. This allows for multiple body contouring benefits and helps you achieve the desired hourglass figure.

Fat is harvested from a donor area(s) on your body using gentle liposuction techniques. Fat is commonly taken from the abdomen, waist, thighs, or lower back. Fat is taken from here because these areas often collect the most significant amount of excess fat, and fat reduction here will highlight your sculpted physique.

The liposuction techniques used must be very delicate so as to not damage the fat cells. Fat cells must be living in order to successfully graft into the buttocks.

Step 2: Fat Purification

Once the fat has been removed, it is put through a series of purification processes that will isolate the strongest and most viable fat cells for transfer.

Step 3: Fat Injection

The cleansed fat is injected into various locations and depths of the buttocks to provide shapely, even butt contours.

Since the body will absorb some fat, your surgeon will transfer a greater amount of fat than desired.

Addressing Your Concerns


You will experience bruising, swelling, and redness on the buttocks and fat removal sites. A compression garment should be worn to minimize swelling and improve healing. You may feel tightness or numbness in your buttocks. You should limit your physical activities for three to four weeks following your procedure; Dr. Davison or Dr. Pinell will advise when you can resume your normal activities. You will need to avoid applying direct pressure to your buttocks for several weeks following your surgery. The majority of patients return to work within two weeks of treatment. Most major swelling begins to subside by six weeks, which is when your results will become visible.


The fat removal and injection process requires only small incision sites. Incisions used for fat removal are usually placed in easily concealed locations. Most patients don’t experience visible scarring. However, because each patient is unique, scarring may develop. Any scarring that does develop is likely to fade over time.


The Brazilian Butt Lift is performed using general anesthesia, and the procedure is painless. You might experience some discomfort during your recovery, which can be controlled using an oral pain medication.
