Woman Butt Lift

Genetics can limit the effects of diet and exercise on certain aesthetic outcomes. For example, it may require more than lifestyle changes to make your backside as round and firm as you want.

That extra support might be a cosmetic procedure called a Brazilian Butt Lift (buttock augmentation with fat grafting). It involves transferring fat from another part of your body to your buttocks.

Move Your Fat from Some Place to the Right Place

Not only does the surgery help create a more voluptuous backside, but it even removes stubborn fat deposits from other body parts to do so! Therefore, a Brazilian butt lift is ideal for you if your body stores fat in the abdomen or thighs while your backside remains flat and small.

At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer this cosmetic procedure so you can feel comfortable with your body and comfortable fitting into clothes better. You should be of healthy weight but have some fat deposits around the tummy or upper legs. We remove that excess fat with liposuction, then transfer it to the buttocks – slimming one area to enhance another.

Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Outlook

A Brazilian butt lift is well-acknowledged for providing more natural-looking results than silicone implants. It can take up to six months to see the final results, but they will be long-lasting. This is because the transferred fat remains where we placed it for the rest of your life, growing and aging with you along with the rest of the tissues in your body.

But you must adopt a healthy diet and exercise routine so your weight doesn’t fluctuate, and you maintain your butt’s improved contour and shape.

Good Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift

You should be of a healthy weight with a bit of extra fat somewhere with which we can work. A few other conditions to qualify you as a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift include:

  • You have relatively firm skin on the buttocks
  • You will comply with recovery recommendations
  • You are a nonsmoker
  • Your lifestyle already involves regular exercise and a healthy diet
  • You are infection-free and have not had any recent infections
  • You have not undergone any other surgical procedures recently

If your body fat percentage is deficient, a butt implant, not a Brazilian butt lift, is right for you, because there will not be enough fat to use for the transfer.

Also, this procedure does not fix sagging buttocks due to lost elasticity in the skin tissue. If you seek to “lift” your backside, a butt lift may be the more fitting solution.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Munique Maia will help you determine if a Brazilian butt lift is right for you according to your body type, health history and desired outcomes. Contact our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA if you think that fat grafting could give you that perfect backside you want.

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.
