Brazilian Butt Lift for Improved Body Lines
The ideal shape of the female backside is a matter of opinion, but many women (and men) prefer an uplifted, rounded appearance to the buttocks. A rounded hip area naturally makes the waist appear smaller, creating a curvy, more feminine silhouette. The Lifestyle Center can perform a buttocks augmentation, more popularly known as a Brazilian Butt Lift, at our St Louis-area practice to enhance your body contours.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Most plastic surgeons use a fat transfer method for buttocks augmentation, re-positioning body fat from unwanted locations to pad and reshape the posterior. Some surgeons also use implants for a butt lift, but the Lifestyle Center emphasizes natural, less invasive treatment and does not offer implants. Dr. Moore uses advanced “Tickle” liposuction to harvest stem-cell enriched fat from the patient’s body, then transfers this fat to add shape, contour, and lift to the buttocks. At The Lifestyle Center, we especially recommend contouring of the waist or love handles in conjunction with the Brazilian Butt Lift as this accentuates the curvature of the buttocks.
Fat harvesting for your Brazilian Butt Lift gives you the added bonus of a sleeker midsection. The fat is commonly taken from the flanks (also known as “love handles”) which further emphasizes your new, rounded buttocks and pulls in the waist at the same time.
Using fat transfer, Dr. Moore is able to effectively alter the hip area in a variety of ways. Some patients with an athletic build want to add roundness to a muscular gluteus, so fat is added to the indented sides of the butt to create a more feminine shape. Other patients feel their backside is too flat, or appears droopy. For these patients, we can add volume to the central upper portion of the buttocks to create a ‘perky,’ rounded appearance. For women who seek enhanced curvature and volume at the top of the buttocks, fat transfer is concentrated in the upper quadrant area.
You will notice a difference in your body shape immediately, but the full effects of buttocks augmentation are seen in about three months. Our Brazilian Butt Lift patients are usually very happy, and love shopping for clothes to show off their new body contours!
