Brazilian Butt Lift

brazillian butt lift Before & After Photo San Diego
A Brazilian butt lift is a surgical body contouring procedure that uses fat harvested from the patient’s body to add volume to the buttocks to enhance their size, shape, and overall appearance. Dr. Mark Mofid is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has provided numerous patients with amazing results from their Brazilian butt lift in San Diego..


The Brazilian Butt Lift is an augmentation procedure of the buttocks that combines the excellent results obtainable through liposuction of the abdomen, hips, and thighs with grafting techniques that create a more youthful and prominent buttocks and a more sensual body profile. Dr. Mofid removes fat from selected areas of the body, purifies the fat, and then reinjects selected donor fat cells into the buttocks. The procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of the buttocks so that it appears lifted and perky. Patients interested in cosmetic face, body, or breast surgery may also visit his La Jolla-area office for more information on financing or to learn more about the cost of his procedures. Please apply for CareCredit® online to receive instant approval.


People with good donor fat (a little extra fullness in the abdomen and hips), and flat buttocks make the best candidates for Brazilian butt lifts. This is because the fat that is harvested through liposuction techniques is prepared and re-injected into the buttocks. Very thin people without enough donor fat in the abdomen, hips, or thighs may be better candidates for buttock implants.

Smoking can hinder the healing process and increase the risk of complications. Dr. Mofid may recommend quitting smoking before and after the procedure. As well, individuals with certain medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, or clotting disorders, might be at higher risk for complications during surgery or during the recovery period.

Your buttock augmentation in San Diego begins with anesthesia, typically a combination of local anesthesia and sedation or general anesthesia, ensuring comfort during the procedure.

Once you are asleep, Dr. Mofid will start extracting fat in areas surrounding the buttocks, like the back, abdomen, and thighs, to harvest donor fat. Small incisions are made, and a thin cannula is used to suction out the fat cells.

This fat, once removed, undergoes careful processing to purify it, ensuring only the highest quality fat cells are selected for re-injection into the buttocks. The centrifugation or filtration process separates the fat cells from impurities, excess fluids, and damaged cells. This results in a concentration of pure, healthy fat cells for the procedure.

The purified fat is carefully injected into different regions of the buttocks using specialized cannulas. Dr. Mofid’s precise technique involves hundreds of micro fat injections, strategically placed to optimize permanent absorption. This method ensures uniformity, smoothness, and a natural-looking enhancement to the buttocks.
