What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Differing from a traditional butt lift (where only excess skin is removed), a Brazilian butt lift involves fat being removed from other parts of your body (usually above and below the butt, the thighs or abdomen) and injected into the buttocks for added volume and improved shape.

Since it is your own body fat that is used, there are reduced chances of rejection or other associated problems. Plus, if you have symmetry problems on your butt cheeks, your doctor will make your butt cheeks more symmetrical.

This surgical enhancement of your butt will give you a sexy figure that you can show off in swimsuits, tight jeans and other fitting clothes. 

Why Consider a Brazilian Butt Lift in the Philippines?

The Philippines is a premier medical tourism destination in Southeast Asia. It is reasonably priced for medical and cosmetic procedures since there is plenty of healthy competition between clinics and the cost of living here is relatively low.

You can choose from many places in the country, all of which have excellent medical facilities. You can check out Manila, the country capital, or visit other places like Cebu and enjoy the stunning beaches and tropical islands that are just a short ferry ride away

While it is possible to fly directly to most major cities in the country from Australia and other parts of Asia, you may need to take local transport to your destination if there is no international airport, particularly when visiting far-flung islands. 

Why Book with Medical Departures?

As the Philippines has numerous medical centers and hospitals in different locations, you may well feel somewhat spoilt for choice. However, when you book on your own, you will not be able to check on the actual qualifications of the doctors and the kind of place you book. You really don’t want to have a bad surgical experience, which can happen if the doctor is not skilled or experienced.

When you book through Medical Departures, you minimize your risk while still paying the best prices online. That is because we conduct a detailed investigation of the qualifications, accreditations and experience of the doctors that work at the clinics and hospitals we list on our website. We also ensure that the amenities at the places are of an equal standard as you are used to and they follow international treatment protocols. 

What Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Involve and What Is the Recovery Like?

Brazilian butt lift surgery is a two-step procedure since it involves liposuction and then injection of the refined fat.

  1. First, the surgeon will carry out liposuction on the predetermined area(s) to harvest the fat.
  2. This then has to be processed, refined and small a percentage has to be injected back into the marked areas of the butt.

The whole process can take three to six hours. Your doctor may prefer local sedation or general anaesthesia depending on his or her preferences and your health.


  • You should expect to have considerable swelling and bruising.
  • You will have bandages, possibly drains and need to use compression garments for four to six weeks to help the liposuctioned areas back to shape.
  • You will need to avoid sitting on your butt for several weeks, and sleep on your stomach.
  • Final results may take up to three months as initially, you will have normal swelling that will reduce.
  • You will need at least two weeks off from work.
