If you smoke, you will need to quit four weeks before your plastic surgery and not to resume for at least two weeks after your surgery. Smoking decreases blood circulation to the skin and impedes healing.
Your height and weight will be recorded at each office visit — please note that our office is in Henderson, Nevada, just outside of Las Vagas.

- A list of your medications will be reviewed and certain medications should be discontinued at least 2 weeks prior to the operation.
- You will be asked to refrain from taking any medications or other substances which could potentially be the cause of surgical complications such as aspirin, NSAIDs and vitamin E. These medications interfere with the blood clotting mechanism and can cause bleeding complications
- Patients with high blood pressure must have their condition well controlled prior to plastic surgery and should plan to take their blood pressure medication right up to the time of their operation.

You will be asked to pre-arrange for somebody to drive you home from the surgery office after your surgery.

To help his patients achieve the feminine beauty of an hourglass figure, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Cambeiro now offers the Brazilian Butt Lift. If you live outside of the Las Vegas area, please contact us to learn more about our fly-in program.
Increasingly popular, this procedure offers patients the fully rounded buttocks that they desire. As a result, the waistline looks smaller, while the breasts round out that desirable hourglass profile seen in so many celebrities. In addition, because Dr. Cambeiro performs the enhancement with a fat transfer, you can enjoy slimmer, shapelier thighs, abdomens, and hips. Learn more about this aspect of the procedure in our liposuction section.
A variety of methods can be used to enhance the buttocks. The Brazilian Butt Lift is all about enhancing and improving the contour of the buttocks. Dr. Cambeiro adds volume to the buttocks through fat transfer, which involves grafting your own excess fat tissue from an area such as the thighs or stomach into your buttocks.
To complete the fat transfer, the fat is first extracted from the targeted area, then purified before being placed in the buttocks using a special cannula. You will need to observe certain precautions as you recover from your surgery. Be sure to follow the detailed instructions provided by Dr. Cambeiro and his staff to facilitate your healing and recovery process.
By having your excess fat removed and transferred, you will enjoy two benefits from your Brazilian butt lift: your hips, thighs, and abs can be smaller and shapelier, while your buttocks will appear rounder and fuller.
