Butt Augmentation and Brazilian Butt Lift
There are two different types of butt lifts. The first involves implants, and the second, the Brazilian butt lift, involves transferring the fat from different areas of the body to buttocks. Dr. Gordon Kaplan specializes in butt augmentation and Brazilian butt lifts for his NJ and NYC patients.
There are several women in the New Jersey and Manhattan area who seek buttocks augmentation or the Brazilian butt lift because they want to improve the shape and appearance of their buttocks. This can be done by increasing the size, contouring, lifting, correcting proportional imbalances as well as improving firmness of the buttocks. NYC patients may also improve their overall look by removing fat from specific areas, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, back and transferring the fat to their buttocks. There is less risk of infection since this is your own fat, which will not be rejected by your body. Fat transfers to your buttocks and the fat taken away from other areas through liposuction, can create a more appealing shape and natural enhancement with a butt lift procedure for patients in NJ or NYC areas.
Ideal Candidates for a butt lift
Ideal candidates for but lift and Brazilian butt lift procedure are women who are physically healthy, at a normal weight, have skin with adequate firmness and elasticity, and have realistic goals.

"Dr Kaplan and his staff are amazing! I travel an hour and a half from south Jersey to see him and it is well worth the drive! They are friendly, helpful, and always make me feel comfortable and I walk out feeling better than when I arrived. Dr Kaplan is more than a Dr. He is an artist and he takes his time to make sure every detail and angle and the overall look of my face is improved with the injectable procedures I have had including facial and nasolabial enhancements. I am planning to move out of state soon and will definitely plan to travel even further to see him again if needed in the future!"- L.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2021

The Brazilian butt lift is a comprehensive procedure that combines liposuction with the transfer of the patient’s own fat from other parts of the body to the buttocks.
Butt lift procedures are performed by Dr. Gordon Kaplan in his NJ and NYC offices. The Brazilian Buttocks Augmentation procedure may take approximately 90 minutes to three hours, based on multiple factors, including the amount of fat that is being removed, how many areas to be treated, and the patient’s desired shape of the buttocks.
Some suggestions to help you prepare for your butt lift procedure.
- Stop using Aspirin and Ibuprofen. Dr. Kaplan and his team will provide you with a complete list of medications and herbal supplements to avoid prior to your surgery.
- Quit smoking cigarettes for at least two weeks before and one week after your surgery. Nicotine can impair circulation and healing.
- Avoid drinking any alcohol for two week before your butt lift procedure and one week after surgery.
- Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your butt lift surgery.
After your butt lift or Brazilian butt lift procedure, you can expect to have some bruising, swelling, and pain. A loss of sensation in the areas treated is normal and should be restored shortly. Swelling may last over a period of several months. Pain medication will be prescribed if needed to control any discomfort. You should be up and walking around few days after your butt lift surgery. Special compression garment will be provided for you to wear up to a month to help ensure the treated areas will heal properly with the new contour of your buttocks. High impact activities should be avoided for at least one month, including jogging, running and any type of bouncing.

Questions and Answers
How much of the fat can I expect to keep permanently?
This greatly varies from person to person, but most patients can expect to keep about 60% of the total transferred fat (volume). After about five months, the amount of fat that remains is assumed to be permanent.
What happens when I lose weight after my surgery, will my buttock size decrease?
The buttock size can increase or decrease depending on your overall body weight fluctuations. If you happen to gain weight, you may see an increase in the size of your buttock as well as your entire body. If you lose weight after your butt lift surgery, your buttock may get smaller.
How long is the recovery from a Brazilian buttock lift?
Most NJ and NYC patients will take 4-7 days off from work to recover from a buttock augmentation (Brazilian buttock lift).
When can I begin exercising after my butt lift?
We recommend that patients avoid exercising for about four to seven weeks after surgery. After your post surgery evaluation, Dr. Kaplan will advise you when you can begin doing any exercises.
Can I have other procedures done at the same time?
It is possible to perform other procedures such as liposuctions, tummy tuck, or breast augmentation at the same time as your butt lift in order to further enhance overall body shape and proportion.

The average total cost of butt augmentation and a Brazilian butt lift in NJ and NYC averages around $7,000 to $13,000. The fee varies slightly depending on the amount of fat that needs to be extracted in order to achieve the desired result and the experience of the plastic surgeon.
