Brazilian Butt Lift in New York

For years, a body concern many people never spoke about was the size and shape of their buttocks. However, thanks to the glamorization of the illustrious backsides of celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, buttock augmentation has become popular for helping patients achieve a shapely gluteal area. As new innovations have made way over the last 10 years, technologies such as autologous fat transfer have helped to introduce the Brazilian Butt Lift. This procedure has opened the door to safe, effective, and natural-looking buttock enhancement.

The Brazilian Butt Lift involves harvesting fat from one area of the body, purifying it, and then injecting it into the buttocks to add volume and create a better buttock shape. Many people have gained an increase in fullness, roundness, and projection of the buttocks after undergoing the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. Most have found that this buttock enhancement procedure has helped them achieve a balance in their figure and a boost in confidence.

Thinking About Having a Brazilian Butt Lift?

What to Expect From the Procedure

Dr. Taranow will evaluate your natural body type and butt shape to discuss the best options to help you achieve your butt enhancement goals.


  • The Brazilian Butt Lift is an outpatient procedure performed under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
  • Fat is harvested from areas such as the arms, thighs, hips, flanks, abdomen, and/or back using state-of-­the-­art liposculpture technology.
  • The fat is cleansed and purified in order to isolate the highest quality fat cells to be used for butt augmentation.
  • Dr. Taranow strategically injects the fat into the buttocks in layers to create a structure that will provide patients with the most plump, natural-­looking behind.
  • Incisions are closed with sutures.
  • A compression garment is placed over the buttocks and should be worn for approximately two weeks.
  • Workouts can be resumed within one month.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs

A: Patients will need to wear a compression garment 24 hours a day for two weeks to reduce swelling and to support the buttocks. For three to four weeks, patients should avoid sitting or putting pressure on the buttocks. Cushions are recommended when sitting for a long period. Most patients return to work after one week.
A: The results of the Brazilian Butt Lift are long lasting. However, the buttocks can change over time due to weight fluctuations and pregnancy. It is important that patients live a healthy lifestyle to maintain their results.
A: There will be some pain and discomfort due to swelling and bruising. Oral medications will be prescribed by Dr. Taranow to help with pain, aid in healing, and reduce the risk of infection.
A: Although multiple incisions are made for liposuction, they will be small and discreet. As the incisions heal, they will become less visible if barely noticeable at all. Since no incisions are placed in the buttocks, there will be no scarring on the butt.
A: As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications with the Brazilian Butt Lift, which may include:
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Reabsorption of fat
  • Asymmetry
  • Bruising
  • Numbness
  • Blood clots
A: The cost of a Brazilian Buttock Lift is influenced by many factors, including the extent of fat grafting and all associated fees. After you meet with your surgeon, you will be provided with a customized quote for your procedure.
