Brazilian Butt Lift Overview
Shapely, perky buttocks are a key characteristic of an attractive, youthful figure. Unfortunately, as a result of aging, gravity, pregnancy, genetics, and/or large weight loss, the buttocks often develop a sagging, flattened appearance that lacks roundness and definition. A Brazilian butt lift surgery gives the buttocks a firmer, lifted appearance through techniques to remove excess skin and tighten sagging skin and tissues. Brazilian butt enhancement surgery by triple board-certified Houston plastic surgeon, uses Dr. Henry Mentz’s innovative butt grafting machine. Dr. Mentz’s advanced fat grafting technique utilizes a special pump to speed and increase the volume of fat that can be added to buttocks in a single procedure so that a rounder contour can be achieved.
Brazilian Butt Lift Reviews
"Dr Mentz is an incredibly talented and gracious doctor! With Wonderful bedside manner! He was able to work magic with a rhinoplasty revision from the previous botched nose job I had received from a doctor before him. My nose looks better than it ever has!! He also did a breast augmentation. Upsizing my 10 yr old implants from saline to silicone and a larger implant. And I finally have the breasts I always wanted!! And a testament to his generosity and commitment to perfection, originally I had a smaller implant chosen and after the original surgery was not happy with the size after all. Dr Mentz was kind enough to allow me to go back under the knife only a couple of days after the initial surgery and obtain the larger implants I desired...FREE OF CHARGE!! Only charging me for the price of the implants. His compassion and understanding made me feel like he really cares and his commitment to perfection rivals my own I am about to have a Brazilian butt lift done with him in a month or two and I am so excited!! Because I know what a talented doctor he is!! I would not entrust my body or face to another doctor EVER AGAIN! If your looking for your "happily ever after", look no further! Thank you again Dr Mentz!! For making me feel (and look) whole again!!"- C.B. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2019
Brazilian Butt Lift Surgical Technique
Dr. Mentz performs all body contouring procedures at his private AAAASF-certified SurgiCentre facility in Houston, Texas, where you will be carefully monitored and cared for by a board-certified anesthesiologist and Dr. Mentz’s highly trained surgical staff. A buttocks lift is most often combined with butt augmentation using fat grafting (Brazilian butt lift) to improve the contour of the buttocks. In some cases, butt augmentation, alone, can be all that is needed to give the buttocks a more lifted appearance, through fat grafts to add volume to the upper portion of the buttocks.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
Following your surgery, Dr. Mentz may recommend an overnight stay or outpatient surgery for patients who live within 20 miles of our office so a registered nurse can visit and monitor your recovery. You will experience bruising and swelling after a buttocks enhancement procedure. Ice packs are helpful to reduce swelling and discomfort. Much of the bruising and swelling will diminish within 2-3 weeks. Because fat grafts come from a patient’s own body, there is little to no chance of an allergic reaction. During the recovery process, it is important to take short walks. More strenuous activities and aerobic exercise may be resumed in 3-6 weeks or when Dr. Mentz advises. Most patients are able to return to work in approximately 1-2 weeks following surgery.
Multiple procedures will reduce the costs for anesthesia and facility time. Please be aware that the prices listed below are for an estimate of fees only and that you will need a consultation to confirm any pricing.

Butt Fat Graft FAQs
Buttocks enhancement surgery is frequently combined with other procedures to improve the body’s contour lines and proportions. This can include breast enhancement surgery to add lift and volume to the breasts or body contouring procedures such as liposuction, a tummy tuck, thigh lift, and lower body lift.
Why Dr. Mentz?
As the nation’s first triple board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Henry Mentz is respected nationwide for his introduction of innovative liposuction and body contouring techniques. Dr. Mentz introduced a groundbreaking new method to improve buttocks augmentation surgery to the respected International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery at its 2010 meeting. The technique utilizes a special pump to speed the process and volume of fat that can be grafted into the buttocks, resulting in a fuller, shapelier contour than can be achieved through the more limited and cumbersome syringe method of fat grafting.
