Brazilian Butt lift will give you the shapely profile you desire
Brazilian Butt Lift Experience – What Our Patients Say
My liposculpture and my Brazilian butt lift show my new shape by Dr. Viera.*
We are now utilizing the latest technology to augment the gluteus (butt). Previously many large syringes were utilized to introduce the fat gradually (and very slowly) into the butt. Dr. Hector Viera now utilizes automated mechanical equipment which removes the fat utilizing very small cannulas and electrical power. After the fat has been removed it is cleaned and purified in the same container, power is then reversed and the fat is reintroduced into the gluteus.
This technique allows much more precise placement of the fat into the various areas of the gluteus and hips if so requested, as well as a much shortened operative time. The fat is placed under very little pressure, this is important since placing the fat under pressure cuts down circulation and consequently less chance that the fat will survive. This technology allows for a much greater amount of fat to be placed. The same cannula is utilized consequently less handling of the fat.
Previously the fat was placed into many syringes to introduce it into the gluteus, this made the transfer of the fat very cumbersome and took a very long time to accomplish the procedure. Now with the new system we use the process is very rapid, less traumatic and we are reintroducing much more fat which allows for most of the fat to survive. With this new method and equipment less punctures are needed to introduce the fat therefore less trauma and lesser chances of infection. The syringe method is now a thing of the past in our practice.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. How Do You Perform The Brazilian Butt Lift?

Results may vary and are not guaranteed.
The BBL is basically a procedure whereby fat is transferred from one area or areas of the body to the butt or gluteus; it is therefore a combination of two procedures, liposuction and fat transfer. It has become a much requested procedure in my practice, almost every time we perform liposuction or tummy tucks it will be accompanied by a BBL. Since liposuction has become the most frequently performed procedure in this country I predict the BBL will soon become the second most common procedure. See the previous paragraph.
2. Is It A Safe Procedure?
It is one of the safest procedures in my practice since we employ the safest techniques which have yielded the safest and most predictable results in my patients. My nursing assistants are extensively trained in the safest methods and sterile techniques. They all have many years of experience.
3. How Can I Tell If I Am A Good Candidate?
If you wish to enhance your gluteus, are healthy and have areas of excess fat in your abdomen, hips or thighs you are a good candidate. Nevertheless, we are very conservative and perform a physical examination as well as a thorough medical history and blood work prior to any surgical procedure to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure. During the initial consult we spend a long time examining the person and explaining the requested procedure. We also provide a slide presentation of many of Dr. Viera’s previous patients to demonstrate what can be accomplished.
4. Where Do You Perform Your Surgeries?
My Surgicenter has been triple AAAHC Accredited for over 25 years. It is very private and for our patients only. They feel comfortable in that it is in our own office and they are assisted by the same nurses they have become familiar with.
5. How Much Fat Can You Transfer?
This varies with the amount of excess fat the patient has and how much she wishes to enhance the butt. Generally I limit the amount to 1,500 cc’s or a liter and a half to each gluteus. What limits the amount I can transfer is not only the amount of fat available to transfer since there can be an ample amount, but the pressure which starts building when I inject the fat. Fat cells are very delicate; they need good circulation for nourishment to survive. If I were to inject under pressure, this cuts down on the amount of circulation and the fat will become liquid, we call this liquification.
6. How Long Do The Results Last?
This depends to a great extent on how well the patient follows our instructions. I provide extensive detailed instructions for our patients, i.e. how to sleep, how to sit, when to start exercising, and many other factors that may come up during their recovery. I or my staff are always literally a phone call away. Each person recovers differently so I vary my instructions according to their progress. Most of the fat survives.*
7. Is The Procedure Very Painful?
No, there is some mild pain involved which is well controlled with pain medication.
8. How Long Does The Surgery Last?
In general, approximately two hours.*
9. How Long Before I Can Return To Work?
This varies with each person but generally in seven to ten days.* The person will need to sit very little as possible for the first two weeks and then in a very soft surface, preferably one or two pillows.
10. When Can I Start Exercising?
I vary this but in general one week for very light exercise and two to three for full exercise.*
