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 increases the volume of fat that can be added to the buttocks in a single procedure so that a rounder contour can be achieved.

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.

Plan Your Procedure

  • Brazilian Butt Lift Cost: Starts at $5,500
  • Recovery Time: 6-8 Weeks
  • Average Procedure Time: 2-3 Hours
  • Procedure Recovery Location: Outpatient

Multiple procedures will increase the costs of anesthesia and facility time. (Please note these fees do not include anesthesia, facility, or outside fees.)


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.

Dr Mentz is an incredibly talented and gracious doctor! With Wonderful bedside manner!

Combining Surgeries?

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.

Lift and Graft?

By combining a butt lift with a fat graft to the butt, you can get the following benefits:

  • Tighten and lift sagging buttocks
  • Improve the projection and contour of flat buttocks
  • Enhance the fit of of your clothes so you can wear jeans, swimsuits, shorts, and fitted attire with confidence
