What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their buttocks and feel that enhancing the size and shape would bring a more attractive balance to their figure. If you want to improve your contours, a Brazilian butt lift in Maryland may be the perfect procedure for you.

This procedure involves the harvest of autologous (your own) fat from another area of your body which is then purified and injected into the buttocks to add roundness, lift, and volume. A brazilian butt lift has the added benefit of slimming areas of the body with excess fat, creating a more alluring body contour.

Why Choose Dr. Steven Rottman for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Deciding to undergo a cosmetic enhancement is a big decision. Not only do you need to find a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon you can trust to perform the procedure correctly, you also want to be treated with respect and kindness. Dr. Rottman has established a unique plastic surgery practice where each patient is given the full attention of both the doctor and the staff so as to provide excellent service and the best butt lift in Maryland.

Brazilian Butt Lift in Baltimore: Surgical Skills and Experience Matter

From start to finish, you will feel that your every need will be addressed. You will never be rushed, or feel like you are “just another patient.” You will always have direct access to Dr. Rottman – he believes that close communication is a vital factor in achieving a successful outcome. Beyond his kind demeanor and personal dedication to his patients, Dr. Rottman has truly impressive skills and credentials. As a double-board certified plastic surgeon, and having served as an assistant professor at Georgetown University Hospital, he is a recognized leader in his field.

Twice the Benefits: A Rounded Bottom and a Trimmer Figure

Achieving a perfect hourglass figure at one time involved extensive plastic surgery. Modern plastic surgery continues to develop, and it is now possible to extract living fat cells and transfer them to the buttocks for the perfect, round bottom, along with a trimmer waist or thighs. The difference in appearance can be truly incredible – and our patients tell us they experience a huge increase in confidence in body image after the procedure.

Should I get a Brazilian Butt Lift?

If you are unhappy with a small, flat, or unbalanced size of your derriere, you may be a candidate for this process.

Likely candidates for the procedure include those with:

  • Sufficient quantities of excess fat in love handles, tummy, or thighs.
  • A small or flat bottom, lacking the balance and rounded curves you want.
  • Good general health, able to safely undergo anesthesia.
  • Not have a large amount of excess sagging skin on your buttocks (if so, this can be addressed with another procedure).

Waht to Expect from a Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian butt lift procedure entails three distinct steps. You’ll be smoothly guided throughout the procedure, informed of what’s to occur next, and be able to ask any final questions at every turn. The steps involved are

  1. 1) Healthy fat is safely harvested from some area of the body using liposuction. The areas from which we harvest fat most often include: the hips, thighs, abs, and lower back.
  2. 2) Next, that extracted fat is purified and prepared for its new home: your derriere.
  3. 3) Finally, Dr. Rottman will inject that now-purified fat into certain parts of your butt to increase its size and improve its shape.

Step 3 is the hard part, where years of Dr. Rottman’s surgical experience goes into the perfect placement of fat, and safely so.

Recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift

One of the most difficult aspects of recovery from a Brazilian butt lift is not pain, which is readily managed with medication, but the fact that you cannot sit or lie on your buttocks for three to four weeks following the procedure. You will be required to sleep on your side or stomach, and stand for other activities. While this may be a little difficult initially, it is well worth the result.

After your butt lift in Baltimore, we carefully monitor the progress of every patient, and once your healing has advanced, we will teach you how to sit without placing undue pressure on the buttocks. Regular, normal sitting is possible after about eight weeks. Plan on two to three weeks off work so you have sufficient time to heal, and your body is ready to sit without harming the new fat cells as they establish themselves in your buttocks.


Of the new fat transfered into your buttocks, 65 to 75 percent of it will survive and thrive, effectively accentuating the curves and contours of your butt. Thus, to begin, for a short period after your surgery, your butt will actually look bigger than it will end up. When that 25 - 35 percent of fat has been metabolized and your butt arrives at its final shape and size, those new attractive looks and feels are going to last for several years to come, if not for decades.

Dr. Rottman is recognized for his approach to plastic and reconstructive surgery that gives his patients exceptional natural-looking results. Because each patient is unique, Dr. Rottman uses both traditional and advanced techniques for his procedures.

Cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift

The approximate average cost of the Brazilian butt lift ranges from eight to ten thousand dollars. This fee is inclusive of all steps of the procedure, including the liposuction required, usually, on multiple areas of the body, as well as then injecting it into the buttocks, and contains the cost of anesthesia, hospital/surgical facilities, and your surgeon’s fee. As patients and their goals vary greatly, we can provide an exact cost following a personal consultation.

Brazilian Butt Lift—Frequently Asked Questions

How Long is the Recovery After a Butt Augmentation?

Will I Have Visible Scars?
