A curvaceous figure that’s voluptuous both above and below the waistline is a defining feature of the feminine figure. For women who aren’t blessed with that iconic hourglass shape, a Brazilian butt lift can add volume to your bottom for a curvier look.
Dr. Ricardo A. Meade is a board certified plastic surgeon and Brazilian butt lift specialist serving the entire Dallas-Ft. Worth metro area, with offices in Dallas and Plano, Texas. In addition to butt lifts, Dr. Meade offers a full range of body contouring procedures for both men and women, and has helped thousands of patients feel more confident about their appearance.
A Brazilian butt lift, sometimes also called buttocks augmentation, uses your own fatty tissue to add volume to your buttocks for fuller, more pronounced curves. A butt lift can be performed for purely cosmetic reasons, or can also be included as part of a body lift following weight loss to improve the contours throughout the thighs and bottom.

Ensuring your candidacy and choosing a surgeon who’s experienced in performing Brazilian butt lifts are two essential ingredients in ensuring the most impressive outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Meade will talk about what your personal goals for the procedure, as well as what you can expect during surgery and recovery. Dr. Meade will conduct a physical evaluation during this time as well, and talk more about the impact that abdominoplasty will have on your physical health and wellbeing. Additionally, you’ll be provided with a cost estimate for your butt lift with detailed price information.
As the date for your surgery gets closer, Dr. Meade may request specific lab tests or medical evaluations in order to give you the best possible care. He may also give you some pre-surgical instructions, including recommending adjustments to any medications, vitamins or supplements you may currently be taking. Dr. Meade will explain why it’s important to avoid the consumption of alcohol and drugs before and after surgery, and abstain from smoking for a certain amount of time as well.
The skin, muscles and connective tissues throughout the body lose volume and elasticity as part of the natural aging process, which can give your bottom a deflated look. This can be particularly noticeable after major weight loss, especially when combined with excess skin and tissue. The appearance of a flatter bottom can also be due to genetic predisposition toward a certain body shape.
During a Brazilian butt lift, the first step is to collect living fat cells via liposuction from a donor area of the body, usually the abdomen or inner thighs. The viable cells are processed to remove impurities before being injected back into the buttocks to add volume. The majority of these cells will thrive in their new location, delivering long-lasting results and a shapelier bottom that won’t look or feel any different from your natural tissue. If the butt lift is being performed in combination with other body contouring procedures, he may also tighten any muscle laxity and remove excess skin for a sleeker, rounder bottom.
Although the recovery process is individualized for each patient, most men and women feel comfortable enough after surgery that they don’t even finish a prescription of 40 pain pills. To avoid complications, it’s important to strictly follow Dr. Meade's post-surgical instructions. You may experience some bruising and swelling at the site where liposuction was performed, but the actual buttocks augmentation won’t require incisions unless a butt lift is included as well. Dr. Meade may ask you to wear a special compression garment to help support your new curves.
You should see a difference in your body shape right away after your Brazilian butt lift, with results becoming more refined as healing progresses. Your new look should include slimmer contours at the donor site due to the removal of fat cells, complemented by a sexier, more sensual bottom for a look that’s firmer, fuller and flattering.
