Am I a Good Candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift?
If you want to find out your options for sculpting a larger, tighter, and more attractive butt, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Emer.

- Are at a stable, healthy weight
- Have tried exercise and diet to shape and augment the butt but still have a flat, flabby, or disproportionate butt
- Have adequate excess fat to harvest from other areas of the body
- Have good skin elasticity in the buttocks and hips
- Are free of any medical conditions that interfere with the healing process
- Do not smoke or are willing to cease smoking as directed by Dr. Emer
- Are committed to following all pre-and post-procedure instructions provided by Dr. Emer
HOW DOES A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT WORK?
Performed in Dr. Emer’s relaxing and state-of-the-art West Hollywood office, Brazilian butt lift is done under local anesthesia, which means you’ll be awake and comfortable the entire time. To complete your procedure and create the sculpted butt you’ve always wanted, Dr. Emer will perform the following three steps:
Remove the fat. Your Brazilian butt lift will begin with Dr. Emer performing tumescent liposuction to remove excess fat from another area on your body, like the abdomen, thighs or back.
Purify the fat cells. Once the necessary amount of fat has been collected, Dr. Emer will separate and purify the fat cells, preserving the cleansed and undamaged ones for the transfer.
Re-injecting the fat into your buttocks. The final step involves re-injecting the purified fat into the target areas on your butt to sculpt your ideal, firm and masculine backside.
What to Expect
Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
Dr. Emer will perform your Brazilian butt lift at his relaxing and state-of-the-art West Hollywood office. Most Brazilian butt lift procedures take two to four hours. You will be under local anesthesia during the procedure, which means you will be awake and comfortable the entire time.
Dr. Emer has developed advanced methods for fat transfer procedures in order to ensure optimal results. His Brazilian butt lift procedure involves:
Fat removal (liposuction)
Your Brazilian butt lift will begin with Dr. Emer performing liposuction to remove excess fat from another area on your body, like the abdomen, thighs, or back. He often uses VASER lipo, an ultrasound-based method of melting fat for easy extraction and precision sculpting. Power-assisted lipo can then be used to remove the fat from the body and further shape the treated area.
Once the necessary amount of fat has been collected, it undergoes a rigorous purification process. This process eliminates debris and contaminants from the fat and helps to ensure that only the most viable fat cells are used for your injections.
Dr. Emer then enriches the purified fat with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells. PRP has been shown to improve fat transfer results, and stem cells have many regenerative benefits that support optimal fat grafting outcomes.
The final step of the BBL procedure is to inject the purified, enriched fat into the target areas on your butt to add volume and create your desired contours.
What to Expect
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
To make sure you achieve the ideal outcome you deserve, your treatment doesn’t end once your Brazilian butt lift is complete. Dr. Emer will provide entirely customized aftercare instructions, including a post-op regimen designed to support the healing process and make sure you get the most out of your procedure.
To begin, you’ll receive a special compression garment designed to apply continuous pressure to the area so no irregularities form in the skin. Dr. Emer will then recommend post-op lymphatic massages, radiofrequency treatments, IV fusion, and hyperbaric oxygen.
You will need to take time off from work and carefully follow all of Dr. Emer’s guidelines during your Brazilian butt lift recovery. You’ll need to avoid sitting and lying on your back for about two weeks to avoid damaging the fat and compromising your results.
In most cases, you’ll be able to return to work and many of your normal daily activities within two weeks. Dr. Emer will provide personalized guidance during your follow-up appointments to help you gradually and safely increase your activity levels.
What to Expect
Brazilian Butt Lift Results
Changes in the shape and size of your buttocks will be noticeable right away. As the area heals over several weeks, you will see continued improvements. It can take up to a year to see final results, depending on your body’s healing process.
This procedure makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your buttocks, and the improvements can last for many years. Dr. Emer’s patients typically experience satisfactory, long-term results with this treatment option.
It is important to commit to eating a clean, healthy diet and staying active in order to maintain your BBL results. Dr. Emer often advises a fitness regimen of Pilates, yoga, and personal training once the area has healed.
Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and/or the natural aging process can affect your enhanced buttock contours. If, over time, you start to notice undesired changes to the shape or size of your butt, Dr. Emer can recommend touch-up and maintenance treatments. Additional fat injections, Sculptra injections, fat removal, and/or skin tightening therapies may be needed to restore your desired shape.

Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Butt Implants: Which Is Right for Me?
The Brazilian butt lift is an effective method of augmenting the buttocks for many patients, but it is not the best option for everyone. Buttock implants are another option for increasing volume and shaping the buttocks. The right choice for you will depend on your anatomy, preferences, and overall goals.
Both treatments create larger, shapelier buttocks and provide long-lasting results. The most significant differences arise in regard to predictability, customization, fat removal, and how invasive the treatment is.
Though Dr. Emer’s advanced fat transfer process helps to ensure maximum results with fat injections, not all of the fat survives. The BBL procedure provides moderate volume increases and is most effective at improving projection in the upper buttocks. Overall, BBL results are not as predictable as butt implant outcomes.
Butt implants are highly customizable and can provide more dramatic volume increases than fat grafting. As a result, butt implants can be ideal for patients who want to achieve specific shaping and considerable augmentation in the upper, middle, and lower buttocks.
The BBL provides a 2-in-1 treatment solution for patients who want to eliminate excess fat in other areas of the body in addition to augmenting the buttocks. Excess harvested fat can be stored for future body sculpting treatments, as needed. For patients who do not have excess body fat for a fat transfer procedure, buttock implants may be a better option.
Buttock implants require plastic surgery, making it a more invasive treatment than the Brazilian butt lift. The BBL is a minimally invasive, natural approach to buttock augmentation, so it can be a good option for patients who prefer not to have plastic surgery and/or patients who prefer to use their own tissue rather than silicone implants to add volume.
Brazilian Butt Lift
The Dr. Emer Difference
Dr. Emer has earned international acclaim for his transformative body sculpting treatments. He has found that maximum improvements most often require a multi-faceted approach, so he provides highly customized, combination treatment plans for his body sculpting patients.
Based on your anatomy, body type, skin quality, desired proportions, and cosmetic concerns, Dr. Emer will develop a targeted protocol to refresh, reshape, and enhance your appearance. To ensure optimal buttock contours, he may recommend combining your Brazilian butt lift with one or more of the following treatments:
Lipo-contouring (HD lipo)
It may seem counterintuitive to remove fat from the buttocks when the overall treatment goal is to increase volume. However, when fatty deposits create unwanted buttock contours, Dr. Emer can perform precision liposuction to extract the fat and create a more aesthetic, rounded shape. The extracted fat can be purified and injected into other areas of the buttocks to add volume where it is needed.
Dr. Emer can use internal skin heating devices like ThermiRF, Renuvion/J-Plasma, or InMode BodyTite to tighten loose, sagging skin in the buttock area. Internal heating devices deliver controlled heat beneath the skin, which causes the skin to contract. The heat also stimulates increased collagen production, which helps to keep skin healthy and youthful long-term.
Cellulite affects the majority of women and most often appears on the buttocks and thighs. To help his patients achieve beautiful, youthful skin to complement their new buttock shape, Dr. Emer may incorporate cellulite reduction treatments like Cellfina or QWO to smooth out dimples and indentations.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?
The cost of your Brazilian butt lift will depend on the complexity of your specific procedure. Once you and Dr. Emer have determined your fat extraction sites and the amount of volume and sculpting needed to achieve your desired outcome, you will receive detailed pricing information.
