A Brazilian Butt Lift Could Grant You the Perfect Backside You Want Tysons, VA
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 truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!

I’m not sure where to begin when attempting to explain the positive experience I had with Dr. Maia and her team. It was important for me to find a woman doctor and she comes with so much experience, an eye for detail and aesthetically on point! I felt so well taken care of, even after 2 months post op they still make me feel taken care of. Not only am I thrilled about the physical results, I am also blown away by their care and follow through. I follow Dr.Maia in IG and literally obsessed with her work!


Dr. Maia is truly amazing! She is an artist and somewhat of a magician! She takes the time to listen to you and walk you through the procedure every step of the way! I even texted after with questions and she and her team were very responsive! I was extremely impressed with the work she did around my eyes. Several people now tell me my 20 year old daughter looks just like me….I never heard that prior to the procedure!

I had one of the most pleasant healthcare experiences I’ve ever had in my life! I came in for excessive underarm sweating and Dr. Maia recommended Botox. She carefully explained everything to me, which I really appreciated as it was my first time ever getting Botox treatment. Her medical assistants were very attentive to my additional questions and made me feel very comfortable while prepping for the treatment. Dr. Maia took her time with me, none of the 5-minute appointments you often get with doctors these days. Everyone was very welcoming and the office is bright and clean. Dr. Maia was referred to me by a family meme we and I’m so glad I went to see her. I absolutely recommend Dr. Maia to anyone and I plan to come back for additional future treatments.

I had a tummy tuck, lipo, and a prominent osteoma removed from my forehead. Although I was nervous about the procedures, Dr. Maia and her staff put my fears to rest. Even after the surgery, her professional staff called to check on me during my recovery, which helped put me mind at ease. Dr. Maia and her staff were always professional, responsive, and listened when I had concerns. After the procedures, I was back at work two weeks later and could not be happier with my results. I had a great experience and Dr. Maia will be my first call for any other procedures.

Dr. Maia is great! She is very knowledgeable! I recommend her to anyone looking to do a cosmetic procedure, breast augmentation, facial lift, etc. Look her up on Instagram so you can see the amazing results from some of her patients!!!!
