Are you looking for a skilled plastic surgeon offering Brazilian butt lift surgery near the Bethesda area? A shapely backside is an attractive asset, but not everyone is blessed with the genetics to provide this feature. Your body shape can be enhanced with diet and exercise, but there are limits to the alterations you can make with lifestyle changes. If you want a rounder, firmer butt, you may need surgical help. Dr. Munique Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offer Brazilian butt lift surgery at our clinic near the Bethesda, MD, area.

Where you store fat and the structure of your body is largely determined by genetics. Some people gain weight in their abdomen or thighs, but their buttocks remain flat or small. Many women joke that they wish they could take the excess fat from their tummy or thighs and add it to their butt. This is exactly what occurs with a Brazilian butt lift. Fat is removed from one area with liposuction, then surgically transferred to the buttocks. Slimming one area while enhancing another is often the perfect solution to creating the body shape you desire.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Not everyone is a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift surgery. For one, this procedure does not actually “lift” the buttocks. If you have a sagging butt or lost elasticity in the buttock tissue or skin, a traditional butt lift may be a better option. Some of the traits of an ideal candidate for Brazilian butt lift surgery include:

  • Excess fat available on the tummy, hips or thighs for fat transfer
  • Flatter or unshapely buttocks
  • Firm skin and tissue on the buttocks
  • Able to follow recovery recommendations

A Brazilian butt lift can enhance the shape of the buttocks while slimming other areas. For some patients, this is an ideal combination procedure to improve their shape. If you are interested in shaping your backside with a fat transfer, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery. We can schedule a consultation with Dr. Maia at our clinic near Chevy Chase near Bethesda, MD, to discuss whether or not a Brazilian butt lift is right for you.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
