Brazilian Butt Lift New York City

Balance is the key to having an attractive figure, and the buttocks play an important role in promoting overall aesthetic harmony of the body. Unfortunately, the buttocks may lose their round, lifted appearance over time due to weight fluctuations and general aging. While certain exercises may improve the appearance of the buttocks, it sometimes isn’t enough. When genetics, weight loss, or other factors prevent patients from attaining an ideal shape, a Brazilian butt lift can help them achieve fuller, rounder buttocks.

A Brazilian butt lift (fat transfer to the buttocks) is a minimally invasive surgery that removes fat from the patient’s body and injects it into the buttocks until the ideal shape is achieved. Combining artistry with the leading fat transfer techniques, Dr. David Cangello can enhance patients’ buttocks through this innovative procedure and create a balanced, proportionate figure.

Dr. Cangello: Your NYC Fat Transfer Specialist

The Brazilian butt lift is a highly specialized procedure that requires the surgical skill of an expert and the eye of an artist. Dr. Cangello possesses both the artistic insight and extensive fat transfer experience needed to produce truly natural-looking results for patients.

Dr. Cangello had the privilege of being mentored by Dr. Sydney Coleman, a surgeon who pioneered many of the techniques used in fat transfer procedures today. In fact, Dr. Cangello is one of only two surgeons in the world who has been personally trained by Dr. Coleman in these techniques. Dr. Cangello worked closely with Dr. Coleman for two years, and during that time he refined the most effective fat transfer techniques available.

Using the proper technique is crucial when it comes to fat transfer to the buttocks. The right technique can increase the chances of survival for grafted fat cells, and it can significantly minimize potential complications such as “oil cysts,” which sometimes develop when too much fat is grafted. Dr. Cangello brings this level of expertise to those seeking a Brazilian butt lift in NYC, and his experience allows him to consistently deliver optimal results while ensuring patient safety.


Ideal Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC

Some patients find that over time, they’ve lost the youthful shape and projection that their buttocks once had. Or, maybe they’ve never been satisfied with the appearance of their buttocks. In either case, a Brazilian butt lift can effectively address these cosmetic concerns by enhancing the shape and size of the buttocks.

This procedure can also improve the contours of the body in the following ways:


  • Produces an ideally balanced figure
  • Can create the appearance of a narrower waist
  • May have slimming effects on areas that serve as donor sites for fat removal

Ideal candidates for a Brazilian butt lift in NYC include healthy men and women who are unhappy with the size, shape, or lack of projection of their buttocks. Candidates should also be at a fairly stable weight, but should have enough subcutaneous fat on areas like the abdomen, thighs, hips, or lower back, which may be used as donor sites for harvesting the fat.

Patients considering a Brazilian butt lift should also understand that the procedure might need to be repeated in order to achieve ideal shape and volume.

Your Consultation for a Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC

Those considering a Brazilian butt lift in NYC will personally meet with Dr. Cangello for an in-depth, informative consultation. This meeting will allow patients to have their questions and concerns answered in detail, so they can decide whether this procedure is right for them.

At the consultation, Dr. Cangello will conduct a physical examination to assess the size and shape of the buttocks, decide which areas could potentially be harvested for fat, and determine how much fat will need to be injected to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals. Areas that are commonly harvested for fat include the abdomen, thighs, hips, and lower back.

After the physical examination, Dr. Cangello will create a treatment plan based on the patient’s unique needs and preferences. He will also help patients explore additional procedures that may complement the effects of a Brazilian butt lift. For instance, those seeking an optimally proportioned figure may benefit from a breast augmentation or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Whether a combination of procedures is preferred, or the patient is only seeking fat transfer to the buttocks, Dr. Cangello is dedicated to helping men and women achieve their goals from cosmetic surgery.

Understanding the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

The Brazilian butt lift does not involve the use of implants or synthetic fillers, so there is little to no risk of rejection by the body or other adverse reactions. Likewise, the procedure is less invasive than having a buttocks augmentation with implants, and scarring is minimal.

The concept behind fat transfer to the buttocks is simple: Fat is removed from areas that have extra fat to give, and this excess fat is then injected into the buttocks to enhance their size and shape. However, the actual procedure is a bit more complex and is typically performed in three stages:


  • Harvesting the Fat: The site (or sites) identified during the consultation will be gently harvested for fat using liposuction. During this step, Dr. Cangello will take great care to make the incisions as meticulously as possible so that any resultant scars are minimal.
  • Processing the Fat: Once the fat has been removed, it is then processed so that only healthy, viable fat cells will be transferred.
  • Transferring the Fat: After the fat has been properly processed, it is injected into the buttocks area using a cannula. Dr. Cangello takes an artistic approach to this very important step, allowing him to sculpt and shape the buttocks with every pass of the cannula. This approach ensures that the buttocks are enhanced proportionately with the patient’s anatomy, producing the most natural-looking results.

Brazilian Butt Lift, NYC – FAQs

Where Will My Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC Be Performed?

For ultimate convenience and comfort, your Brazilian butt lift in NYC will be performed in Dr. Cangello’s on-site operating room. This surgical facility is fully accredited and meets the strict standards of the AAAASF (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities). Dr. Cangello also only works with board-certified anesthesiologists. You are welcome to tour Dr. Cangello’s operating facility during your consultation. If you’d prefer to have your Brazilian butt lift performed in a hospital, Dr. Cangello also has operating privileges at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital in NYC.

  • What is Recovery Like After a Brazilian Butt Lift?

    After a Brazilian butt lift procedure, it is common to experience bruising, swelling, and soreness on the treated areas. These symptoms can be alleviated with ice packs, and Dr. Cangello will prescribe appropriate pain medication to help reduce any discomfort. You will be permitted to shower 1-2 days after the surgery. However, showers should only be taken with warm water (not hot), and they should be brief.

    The sutures Dr. Cangello uses are dissolvable and will not need to be removed. You will also be provided with waterproof dressings, so you will not necessarily have to change them yourself. More specific instructions about dressing care will be provided by Dr. Cangello’s office in your post-operative instructions.

    You will need to minimize any pressure to the buttocks for the first two weeks after your surgery, which will aid in maximizing survival of the grafted fat. During this time, you will also not be able to sleep on your back, and you should not sit directly on your buttocks. You will wear a compression dressing over the areas that were liposuctioned to prevent seroma formation (fluid accumulation under the skin), and to help the tissues conform to their new shape and to keep swelling down. This compression garment can be removed in three-to-four weeks, depending on how much fat was harvested and where it was harvested from.

    To maximize your recovery and focus on healing, you should plan on taking one or two weeks off from work, and you’ll need to avoid strenuous physical activity of any kind for up to six weeks.

    Overall, the better you treat the buttocks area during recovery, the greater the chance that a higher percentage of fat cells will survive. After two-to-three months, patients can expect the final results of their Brazilian butt lift to be evident.

    Are the Results of a Brazilian Butt Lift Permanent?

    Healthy fat cells that survive transfer will generally stay there indefinitely. However, significant changes to your body after your Brazilian butt lift can negatively affect your results. Specifically, dramatic weight loss may cause you to lose volume and lift around the buttocks and hips. For this reason, patients seeking a Brazilian butt lift should be within ten-to-fifteen pounds of their ideal weight for best results.

    Will My Brazilian Butt Lift Need to be Repeated?

    About 50-60 percent of transferred fat cells will survive, so your procedure may need to be repeated in order to achieve ideal volume.

    Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Only for Women?

    While the Brazilian butt lift is commonly performed on women, more and more men are realizing that they are excellent candidates for this procedure. The Brazilian butt lift can also be performed on men who desire more projection and lift for their buttocks.

    Is the Brazilian Butt Lift the Same as Butt Implants?

    No. Butt implants are permanent devices – typically made of silicone – that are placed in the buttocks to enhance their shape and size. A Brazilian butt lift enhances the buttocks by transferring the patient’s fat into the buttocks, but this procedure does not use any kind of implants or other permanent devices. For this reason, many patients are drawn to the procedure, as it provides a more individualized and natural approach.

    Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Safe?

    When performed on appropriate patients by a board-certified plastic surgeon, the Brazilian butt lift is a very safe procedure. Board-certified surgeon Dr. Cangello has the expertise needed to produce optimal results for patients in a safe manner.
