Dr. Maia is offering online consultations


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 in the greater Washington, DC, metro 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 in Tysons Corner, VA, to discuss whether or not a Brazilian butt lift is right for you.
