Do you wish you had more lift, a smoother shape, or more volume in your buttocks? A Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular way to achieve a smooth, attractive contour of the buttocks.

A Brazilian Butt Lift transfers fat from other parts of your body to the buttocks. This guarantees results look and feel natural, because they are!

Brazilian Butt Lifts come with the benefit of contouring and slimming the part(s) of your body where Dr. Bonillas collects your fat for transfer. This accentuates and compliments your buttock augmentation to achieve an ideal hourglass figure.

If you wish you had a fuller, rounder buttocks, a Brazilian Butt Lift at Scottsdale Plastics is a safe, highly effective option. Call our office to learn more today!

What is Butt Lift/Buttock Augmentation?

A buttock augmentation procedure using your own body fat helps to create very natural-looking results. It could be just what you need to achieve a contoured look and more feminine silhouette!

If you have flat or sagging buttocks, you may benefit from a Brazilian Butt Lift that increases the size of your buttocks using your own body fat from a donor site.

Only a select few plastic surgeons have extensive experience performing fat transfer procedures successfully. Dr. Bonillas is one such plastic surgeon. He can perform a Brazilian Butt Lift to add the curves you want and enhance your appearance.

Personal Consultation

During your meeting with Dr. Bonillas, he will ask about your appearance goals and what you hope to accomplish with a Brazilian Butt Lift. We want to make sure candidates have a healthy outlook on cosmetic surgeries and have realistic expectations.

Dr. Bonillas will examine your donor sites and buttocks. This process may include measurements and photographs so the doctor can create your best treatment plan that is personalized to you. He will ask about your health, past procedures, lifestyle, current weight and medication regimen. This information will help him determine if you are an ideal candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift. 

We encourage you to come to this consultation with questions! This meeting is all about you. We want you to feel confident and excited for your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure and will take the time to address your questions and any concerns you may have. Some common questions we receive during this meeting include:

  • How long will my surgery take?
  • What is expected of me to ensure a positive and healthy outcome?
  • Do you have any before and after photos that are similar to my case?
  • How long should I take off from work?
  • When can I start showering again?
  • How do I keep my results looking their best?

Dr. Bonillas and you will discuss the Brazilian Butt Lift and make a treatment plan that is hand-tailored to you! 


Preparation is the foundation for a healthy procedure and recovery. We want our patients to have a positive experience and fall in love with their results. Make sure to follow the instructions provided by Dr. Bonillas in your personal consultation. These instructions will include filling and picking up prescriptions, setting aside an area of your home where you can recover comfortably, arranging transportation to and from the appointment, taking time off from work and preparing meals in advance.

We also suggest having a friend stay with you for the first few days of recovery as you adjust to movement after surgery. 

Twelve hours before your surgery, you will need to fast from food and liquids. This will prepare you for the anesthesia and allow you to have a more comfortable recovery. Dress in loose comfy clothing that does not apply pressure to the treatment areas and can easily be put on and taken off. We also recommend showing up to the appointment a few minutes early so you find everything and sign in without feeling rushed.

How is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a fat grafting procedure that involves extracting fat from a donor site and re-injecting live fat cells into the buttocks. We can extract fat from the flanks, lower back, thighs, or abdomen, depending on how much we need to perform the procedure. The fat is harvested and prepared for re-injection. A set of syringes filled with the processed fat are connected to a cannula and then injected into the buttock muscles and deep fatty pockets. This helps to create the rounder and fuller appearance.


You will need to wear a compression garment to support the healing process and avoid gaining weight for a few weeks after the procedure to ensure optimal results. Patients are advised to avoid sitting for long periods of time and to sleep on their backs or a cushioned surface to avoid putting too much pressure on the buttocks.


The recovery process is different for every patient but most start to see results after several weeks of the procedure. As long as you do not gain or lose a significant amount of weight, you can expect to maintain your results from the fat grafting procedure for the long-term.

If you want to achieve an hourglass silhouette by increasing the size of your buttocks, schedule a Brazilian Butt Lift consultation with Dr. Bonillas today.

How Much Does a Butt Lift Cost?

Everyone is different with their unique anatomical features and vision for their desired appearance. We will take your health history into consideration along with what techniques will achieve your best outcome. Because we put an emphasis on customization, we cannot provide a butt lift cost estimate prior to your consultation. Dr. Bonillas will discuss a cost breakdown with you during your consultation that accurately reflects your personalized procedure.

What is a Brazilian lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift  is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the shape and position of the butt. In this procedure, fat is removed from a donor site. Removing excess fat from one area of the body provides two benefits. The first benefit is that the body is sculpted and toned. The excess fat is reinjected into the butt, allowing it to be rounded out and give the appearance of being lifted. A Brazilian Butt Lift helps our patients appear curvier and sexy!
