Brazilian butt lift (fat injections, - transfer or - grafting)

It is the most common technique. It consists of a combination of liposuction around the buttocks and many injections of fat into the buttocks. The fat is harvested by liposuction from the patientís buttocks, abdomen or elsewhere. The fat is processed and purified before it is reinjected. Depending on the amount of augmentation needed, the patient may need to undergo a significant number of injections, which are made at various sites and depths in the buttocks.

Buttock implants

are stronger than breast implants and made of an elastomer that cannot leak. Implants are placed using a small incision at op of the muscles above the sitting area and below the surrounding fascia to secure them. The incision scar will normally heal such that it is barely visible by 1 year after surgery.

Beads of acrylic glass

are injected in much the same way as fat obtained by liposuction. This is only permissible in some countries.
