What is a Colombian Butt Lift™?

The Colombian Butt Lift is one of our signature treatments offered at Eterna M.D. It utilizes the body’s own shape and adipose tissue to naturally create your ideal glute appearance. This is a similar procedure to Brazilian butt lift surgery, but with Dr. Mercado’s patented techniques that enhance the results of this highly popular cosmetic surgery procedure. No general anesthesia is needed for this procedure, and there is minimal downtime!

People seeking a perfectly perky backside have several choices. You can work out specifically to enhance the gluteus maximus muscles that define the buttocks (although those results aren’t guaranteed, no matter how many squats you do), head to a plastic surgeon for implants or a Brazilian butt lift procedure (both of which require some downtime while healing), or go with a much less invasive procedure: the Colombian Butt Lift™.

The latter option is one of the best, for many reasons. We’ll explain what sets the Colombian buttock augmentation surgery apart from other plastic surgery techniques.

What Makes It Better Than A Brazilian Butt Lift?

One of the good things about the Colombian Butt Lift™ is the fact that it’s performed under local anesthesia, not general. This means that you’ll be awake during it, although you more than likely won’t feel any pain – just some pressure in the treatment area. The ability to avoid general anesthesia lowers the cost, downtime, and negative side effects of any surgery, including fat transfer techniques.

Also, since the Colombian Butt Lift™ involves moving your own adipose tissue from one area of your butt to another, there are no foreign implants to heal from and get used to. This greatly cuts down the chances of getting an infection or rejection of synthetic material, as well as your overall healing time.

The results of the Colombian Butt Lift™ are even more customizable, since you aren’t limited to certain sized implants. You are literally moving excess fat from one part of your body to another, allowing for better, customizable results.

Colombian Butt Lift™ with ULTRASOUND GUIDANCE!

The Colombian Butt Lift™ is performed using ultrasound guidance, which allows Dr. Mercado to see the area beneath the skin with ultrasound technology and achieve the most precise results available. Using ultrasound imaging, our team can:

  • Ensure the injected fat is placed in the subcutaneous tissue and glute muscles where the natural fat exists
  • Reduce the chances of embolization where fat is inadvertently placed in the muscle and travels to the bloodstream
  • Place fat with unparalleled precision for the best, most natural-looking results

Ultrasound guidance is the next step in patient safety when it comes to fat grafting procedures. With the help of a board-certified plastic surgeon, you can feel confident that your Colombian Butt Lift will be safe and effective.

Why Go Colombian?

The Colombian Butt Lift does far more than the average Brazilian butt lift. The Colombian Butt Lift procedure is performed under ultrasound guidance and focuses on giving the entire body shape and natural curves, not just adding volume to the glutes. We do the science and math that is required for the fat transfer procedure, you just relax and enjoy your results.
