Brazilian Butt Lift in Atlanta – A Curvier, Shapelier You
If you wish you could have a firm, round backside, a Brazilian butt lift can transform your shape, giving you the curves you’ve always wanted. In this surgical procedure, fat is extracted from other parts of the body, such as the thighs, stomach, or back, and transferred to your buttocks to add volume.
Dr. Amy Alderman offers Brazilian butt lift surgery in the Sandy Springs area of Atlanta. With this fat transfer augmentation method, you can achieve an overall improved physique along with an enhanced backside.
What Can a Brazilian Butt Lift Do for Me?
Several approaches can be used to re-contour the gluteal region. For some, a dramatic result can be achieved just with liposuction in the hips and flanks region above the buttocks. Removing unwanted fat in the hips will better define the transition to the buttocks and create a more curvaceous contour. For others, volume needs to be added to the buttocks to achieve the desired contour.
Patient safety is Dr. Alderman’s utmost concern with these procedures. Some surgeons have an assistant that harvests the fat, but Dr. Alderman does not. She performs every aspect of the operation herself and transfers the fat to the gluteal region in the safest manner that is currently known.
A Brazilian butt lift can:
- Add volume to the buttocks
- Lift and shape a flat or sagging bottom
- Make the buttocks rounder
- Help your clothes fit better
- Increase self-confidence

Am I a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Most people who desire buttock enhancement are good candidates for this surgery. Excellent candidates for this treatment are those who have excess fat buildup in other areas of the body. If you are slender and are interested in a butt lift, Dr. Alderman can recommend the most beneficial treatment method to meet your needs. The procedure is often part of a mommy makeover for women who have experienced some buttock sagging after pregnancy.
Butt Enhancement Surgery: What to Expect
Gluteal augmentation is associated with some moderate discomfort for one to two weeks, especially when sitting. Patients tend to feel better when pressure is off of the surgical area, such as when standing or laying on their side. In addition to medication to improve their comfort, patients are started on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication right after surgery to provide enhanced pain relief.
It is very important to know the anatomy of the buttocks for this procedure and avoid injecting in areas that are at risk for a complication. In particular, it is important that the fat is transferred to the superficial aspect of the buttock and not deep in the muscle. Dr. Alderman complies with national standards for liposuction, specifically related to the amount of fat harvested and the technique recommended to reduce blood loss.
When you visit Dr. Alderman’s Atlanta plastic surgery office for butt enhancement, you can expect the highest standards for patient education, advanced skill in plastic surgery, and a commitment to your satisfaction and safety. Dr. Alderman takes great pride in helping patients achieve their desired results through the dual benefits of liposculpting and natural butt augmentation.

Your Brazilian Butt Lift with Dr. Alderman
The surgery can be performed under general anesthesia. Because both liposuction and fat transfer are required, your appointment can last up to two hours. During your consultation, you and Dr. Alderman decide which sites will be used for the fat extraction. Usually, the abdomen, back or thighs are targeted for liposuction. A small incision is made in a discreet location and fat is efficiently removed to both sculpt this area and provide fat transfer augmentation.
When enough fat has been harvested, it is purified and treated before it is injected into the buttocks. Dr. Alderman’s training, years of experience, and artistry come into play as she uses the fat to sculpt your buttocks based on how you wish to look.
You can go home the same day, but someone will have to drive you home, as it will take some time for the anesthesia to fully wear off.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift causes some bruising, swelling, and discomfort for a few weeks. Oral medications can help you through this time. You will notice an increase in roundness and firmness after surgery. However, your results will continue to develop and improve throughout the course of the healing process. As swelling subsides, you will begin to see your new silhouette take shape.
Scar management is highly important to Dr. Alderman. Incisions made during the Brazilian butt lift procedure are small and typically heal well. During treatment follow-up, she provides instructions on how to care for the treatment site and care for your skin to decrease the appearance of any scars.
