What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as the Sculptra Butt Lift, is one of the most popular butt augmentation procedures on the market, and it has great results.
This type of butt augmentation restores volume and lift to the buttocks using dermal fillers or fat grafting, or a combination of both. It offers a shapely look to the butt, which may not be achieved through exercise or diet.
Dr Shah uses the Sculptra FDA approved dermal fillers in the non-surgical butt lift to achieve the desired shape for clients through a series of sessions, with minimal side effects. As there are minimal side effects and minimal pain, the Brazilian Butt Lift allows a quick return to your normal activities, with little to no downtime following each session.
How butt augmentation works
Injecting the filler into certain areas of the buttocks can alter the overall shape, giving a more desired look to your figure.
Butt augmentation can be carried out in a few different ways. Some butt augmentation procedures involve liposuction to inject a person’s own fat back into the buttocks with fat transfers, in a process known as fat grafting. However, this procedure involves the client recovering from the fat grafting surgery.
Our treatment is spread out with injections over 3-4 sessions, completed over 3-4 months, giving a fuller appearance of the buttock, augmented through healthier skin and your body’s natural collagen.
Each treatment can take up to an hour, and is usually completed without anesthesia, however ice can be used if you’d like the area numbed, and to reduce swelling. You may see immediate effects following the procedure, though initially this may be due to swelling.
The FDA approved dermal filler used in Dr Sarah Shah’s butt augmentation has been widely used since 1999 to lift the face and fill out depleted tissue, known as poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates the body’s natural collagen.

Brazilian Butt Lift: Choosing your shape
During your butt augmentation consultation, your butt shape will be highlighted to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for the non-surgical butt lift procedure.
Signs that you may be suitable for a Brazilian butt lift include:
- Sagging or flattening of the buttocks
- Dimples and cellulite of the buttocks
- Having realistic expectations
There are 4 main types of female butt shape, which will be outlined in your consultation to find the shape you have, and choose your desired butt shape.
The ‘heart’ or A-shaped butt is widely considered to be the most feminine and desirable shape for women. It comes as a result of fat distributed around the lower portion of the butt and thighs, and gives a more tapered look from the waistline, to the bottom of the butt – creating an ‘A’ shape.
The ‘round’ or O-shaped butt is commonly called a ‘bubble butt’ due to the round appearance. This is considered the second-most desirable shape for women, and comes as a result of fat distribution around the cheeks of the butt. Fat also sits on the upper portion of the cheeks, which gives it the rounded, bubble shape.
The V-shaped butt comes from having more fat on the waist and outer thighs, and is generally seen as the least attractive butt shape for women. It’s more commonly seen in older women, as lower oestrogen levels result in the shift of fat storage from the butt to the midsection, resulting in having the base of the butt less full than the top. This shape has too little, or too tight skin and tissue on the buttocks, making it difficult to accept fat transfer. This restricts the amount of reshaping possible.
The ‘square’ or H-shaped butt is caused by higher or more prominent hip bones, or even by a distribution of fat in the ‘love handle’ area. This is generally the most commonly complained about shape for women, and some consider it to be a little masculine, as it appears straight up-and-down right below the waist, without curves.
A Brazilian Butt Lift can be used to augment O and A shaped butts, as well as correcting a V shaped butt, or likening an H shaped butt to an O or A shape.
Results & Recovery Time
The dermal filler stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen to give the desired shape. This treatment over several sessions can drastically change the butt shape, and results can continue to be seen for over two years. The injected product will eventually be dissolved completely by the body.
There are minimal side effects, but there may be swelling and minor bruising. Patients may notice an immediate result due to swelling of the buttocks, however the full result is achieved after 3-4 sessions completed over 3-4 months. There is little to no recovery time with our procedure, letting you quickly return to your daily activities.
