Did you know that the male buttocks is one of the most important traits that women look at? Subconsciously, it harkens back to primitive times when a strong buttocks represented a strong hunting and gathering technique. The Brazilian Butt Lift is more popular than ever. But, did you know that there’s a male equivalent? Aptly named the Brozilian Butt Lift, this procedure for men was pioneered by Dr. Millard himself and gives men stronger, more defined looking buttocks.
More and more men are seeking out male buttocks fat transfer and many of them come to Dr. Millard, the pioneer of the ultrasound grafted fat augmentation technique, which enables optimal Brozilian Butt Lift results.

About Male Butt Augmentation
While most butt enhancing procedures have been performed on women, a growing number of men are now seeking out butt lift and augmentation procedures these solutions for a more pronounced and shapelier buttocks. In a similar way to how the procedure is performed on women, a male butt augmentation procedure utilizes fat harvested through liposuction from areas like the back, abdomen and flanks. The fat is then safely transferred to the buttocks for augmentation and definition.
The goal of the male buttocks augmentation is to give the appearance of a larger and stronger gluteus maximus and gluteus medius. Unlike women who frequently desire a softer, rounder buttocks, men usually desire a more square and stronger appearance. Dr. Millard achieves this by injecting the fat into the muscle of the buttocks instead of the fattier areas. This can be safely achieved using a technique pioneered by Dr. Millard himself, called ultrasound grafted fat augmentation technique or UGFAT.
Candidates for Brozilian Butt Lift
Men who meet the following criteria make for the ideal Brozilian butt lift candidate:
- At or near their ideal body weight
- 25 – 55 years old
- In good health
- Physically active
- Have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure
Male Butt Augmentation vs Female Butt Augmentation
Dr. Millard pioneered the male buttocks augmentation and calls it the “Brozilian Butt Lift.”
The goal of a male buttocks augmentation is to restore the “squared” muscular appearance of the buttocks. In this way the goals are different than those of female buttocks augmentation.
Women who choose to get a Brazilian Butt Lift are often seeking an enhanced hourglass figure, while men are seeking a more square aesthetic. Women desire a softer, rounder behind, while men are looking for a stronger, more firm appearance.
Dr. Millard achieves this by mainly augmenting the muscle and not the fat in a Brozilian Butt Lift. While most other surgeons use a blind-grafting technique, Dr. Millard uses UGFAT, ultrasound grafted fat augmentation technique. This approach, which he pioneered, allows him to safely transfer fat into the buttocks, attaining a more masculine aesthetic.
Of course, men seeking this operation are asked to come into Dr. Millard’s office first for a consultation. The consultation allows the doctor and the patient to communicate about the patient’s expectations and goals, giving them the best possible outcome.
Men interested in a Brozilian Butt Lift may be interested in some of the other male-specific procedures that Dr. Millard offers.
Gynecomastia is the presence of excess breast tissue in men. This is a common occurrence and affects 40%-60% of men. In order to combat gynecomastia, men can undergo male breast reduction surgery to restore their chest and pectoral muscles.
Dr. Millard pioneered VASER Hi-Def Lipoplasty, which allows men to shrink, tighten, and tone their chest without the need for major incisions. Using a small incision in the armpit or around the areola, depending on the patient’s preference, Dr. Millard will use VASER ultrasound technology to remove fat and promote skin tightening, for a contoured, masculine aesthetic. In more severe cases, the patient may also require a Tichler device to remove the remaining glandular tissue.
Dr. John Millard pioneered VASER Hi-Def, which is the perfect tool for sculpting the male form. This groundbreaking technology not only removes fat, but it also tightens skin and promotes muscle definition. It can be used to enhance the abs, pecs, torso arms and more.
When choosing to undergo body contouring, it is important to choose a surgeon that understands the unique anatomy of men. Although the majority of plastic surgery patients are women, more and more men are beginning to take advantage of plastic surgery’s capabilities as well. Dr. Millard is one of the industry’s top male plastic surgeons, which is why men travel from Denver and beyond to take advantage of his expertise.
Prior to the surgery date, patients will be asked to do the following:
- Make arrangements for a ride home from surgery
- Quit smoking two weeks prior (if applicable)
- Fill any prescriptions provided by Dr. Millard
- Altar medications or supplements as instructed by Dr. Millard
- Do not consume any alcohol for two days prior to the surgery
- Have plenty of pillows at home
Dr. Millard will provide the patient with personalized and more detailed information at the time of the consultation.
A Brozilian Butt Lift for men typically takes about 3 hours under general anesthesia. The procedure can be broken down into the following three parts:
- The patient’s hip area and lower back will be liposuctioned first to make the buttock appear more prominent and athletic. In some cases, liposuction may also be performed on other parts of the body where there is excess fat, including the abdomen, arms, or flanks.
- Fat suctioned from the other areas of your body will be purified by decanting and centrifugation with Puregraft. This uses a closed technique, which makes sure that none of the fat ever comes into contact with the air. Then, the purified fat is transferred into small, specialized syringes.
- Purified fat cells will then be grafted (injected) into the buttock. Only a small percentage (approx. 25%) of the fat removed will qualify for re-injection. This helps ensure that the maximum amount of fat takes to the new areas. The cells are grafted at varying to depths to also improve survival rate.
Following the procedure, patients will be taken to a recovery room until they wake up from anesthesia. They will be able to return home the same day of the procedure.
Patients should not sit on their buttocks for 10 days. This will aid in blood flow to the transferred fat, making sure that as much fat as possible survives in the new locations. Patients will also wear a compression garment for approximately 4-6 weeks. The compression garment will help minimize bruising and swelling, while also helping the buttocks settle into its final shape. They may take it off when they shower.
Dr. Millard will make sure to go over all pros and cons of the surgery during the initial consultation so patients are aware of everything the procedure entails.
Over the course of the following several months, any fat cells that did not take to the new area will be naturally eliminated from the body. Since not all off the fat will survive in the newly grafted area, the final results will take about six months to a year to appear.
As with any surgical procedure, there are some risks that patients should be made aware of. Some side effects that may be associated with a Brozilian Butt Lift include changes in skin surfacing, swelling, or fluid retention.
Men interested in buttocks augmentation should begin by contacting Dr. Millard in Lone Tree, CO, just outside of Denver. Dr. Millard is a pioneer in both the worlds of liposuction and fat grafting.
The goal of the consultation is for Dr. Millard to fully inform the patient of the procedure details, so they feel confident undergoing cosmetic surgery. However, the goal is also for Dr. Millard to fully understand the patient’s goals and what they hope to achieve from the procedure to make sure it is a good fit. Communication is key.
Dr. Millard will start by asking the patient about his concerns with his current appearance. He will ask the patient why they are interested in a Brozilian Butt Lift and what they hope to achieve from the outcome of the procedure and in the long term. If the patient feels comfortable bringing in a picture of the look they want to have, this will be helpful. Dr. Millard will also perform an examination in order to determine whether or not the patient is a good candidate for the procedure and to give the patient an idea of what can reasonably be achieved.
At the end of the consultation, Dr. Millard will develop a personalized procedure plan for the patient. This will include making decisions about anesthesia, technique, post-operative care and more. All of these options can affect the price of a male buttocks fat transfer procedure. For this reason, Dr. Millard asks that patients wait until the end of the consultation in order to discuss pricing. Cost is variable and it is at this time that Dr. Millard will be able to provide the most accurate price estimate. If the patient chooses to undergo additional procedures, the price will reflect that.
