Butt Lifting –
Butt enlargement

Poliftin, butt lift or more commonly known as Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a procedure that results in a youthful, attractive and round buttocks and exudes a mixture of sporty and charming.

The bottom remains flat or does not get the desired, particularly round shape. With a butt augmentation, this condition can be remedied quickly, safely and in a highly professional medical manner.

It must be emphasized that a Brazilian butt lift is not about a big or huge“butt“. The aim is to achieve an attractive “sexy” shape with the help of medical-surgical means, if training, diet or other means remain unsuccessful.


Procedure of the surgery

A factor that should not be underestimated is the extraction and preparation of the fat cells and the transfer of the healthy fat cells (keywords: lipotransfer, lipofilling, Coleman technique).

The aim of the transplantation is to grow and distribute the lipo cells as evenly as possible without side effects and a low degree of necrosis.

Lifting or lifting is also to be understood more as filling or enlarging the upper side, which makes the bottom appear visually rounder and“crisper“.

The adipocytes are often removed from the abdomen or legs for this purpose, which can have a double effect on your appearance if the aesthetic surgery is carried out correctly.

In simplified terms, the own-fat method can be divided into 3 phases:

  1. Fat extraction, i.e. the removal
  2. Grease treatment – washing
  3. Reinjection of fat cells (lipotransfer)

Local anesthesia with twilight sleep is recommended for this operation to rule out the risk of pulmonary fat embolism.

Brief info

Healing process

You should relax for approx. 3 – 5 days after the operation and not engage in any strenuous activities or work. It is necessary to wear a supportive compression garment for 4 weeks.

Sports activities should be discussed with us beforehand and can be resumed after approx. 2 – 4 weeks.

Side effects and risks

Every medical-surgical procedure involves risks, which are often very low but simply exist. In the case of a BBL’s own fat method (polifting), these are as follows:

  • Swelling and bruising
  • Numbness and pain
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Fat embolism
  • Stretch marks
  • Hematoma
  • Partial loss of the fat graft due to non-compliance with post-operative instructions

This aesthetic operation is currently in vogue. Nevertheless, you must be aware that there is a risk of pulmonary embolism. Your surgeon needs the best experience in areas such as autologous fat, lipotransfer and tissue structures. It must be carried out in a highly concentrated manner with perfect surgical planning.



The butt lift or Brazilian buttock lift is a surgical procedure that should always be performed by a qualified specialist with a profound understanding of the subcutaneous tissue structures and the vascular system.

Of great importance is the intuitively correct execution of the autologous fat transplantation to achieve a wonderful shaping and distribution of the implanted fat tissue.

The buttock lift is a treatment that is often used for normal weight women as part of body contouring and mommy makeovers. In this case, however, a “fat cell transfer” may not be possible, which is why a solution with an implant may be expedient.
