Doctor Radio QA: Are Brazilian Butt Lifts Safe and Do They Last?

Brazilian butt lifts are safe and they do last. However, the complication rate with butt lifts is higher than with other cosmetic procedures. Brazilian butt lifts are performed using Autologous fat injections, where the fat has been harvested or removed from another part of the body. Silicone buttocks implants can be used when the individual does not have an adequate amount of fat to use for the augmentation. Some patients receive a combination of the silicone implants and Autologous fat to give the best contour and fullness. As with all aesthetic surgery procedures, it needs to be performed by someone with a great deal of experience.
