Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure (BBL)

Centre For Cosmetic Surgery

Patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their buttocks, whether due to size, shape or the presence of sagging skin, can enhance their figures with butt lift surgery. This procedure is often ideal for those who have lost weight and feel their buttocks lacks shape or who simply wish to improve the appearance of their backsides. Brazilian Butt Lifts utilizes two different plastic surgery procedures: liposuction and fat transfer. Liposuction removes unwanted fat from areas such as the inner thigh, lower back, flanks, hips, and/or abdomen, and re-purposes the fat to obtain a more desired shape and volume.

BBL Procedure Details

Brazilian Butt Lifts are highly effective and serve two purposes:

Removes unwanted fat from abdomen, hips, waist, inner thigh and/or lower back

Injects fat into buttocks to shape and increase size

Liposuction removes fat from undesired locations that will help enhance the curvature of fat injections in the buttocks such as, lower back and hips. The fat is removed with a specialized cannula, and is then processed before reintroducing it back into the buttocks. This eliminates any other fluid within the removed fat tissue so that only fat cells are grafted. Small areas can typically be done under local anesthesia, however larger areas are best done under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Because the fat used originates 100% from the patient’s own tissue, complications are diminished with received injections. The processed fat is then carefully injected into the buttock to create the desired contour and size.

BBL Recovery

Recovery time varies patient to patient, but 4+ weeks should be allotted for a full recovery in which the patient should refrain from extraneous exercise. The patient should also refrain from sitting for the first 2 weeks of recovery as well. It is important to walk a minimal amount every day, post-op, in order to keep blood circulation through the buttocks in order to prevent blood clots. Patients usually can return to work in approximately 2-4 weeks.

  • Am I a candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

    Yes, if the following applies:

     • Realistic Expectations for Procedure
     • In Good Medical Health
     • Excess Fat in Abdomen, Hips, Waist, and Lower Back
     • Can Commit to Recovery Time

  • What is the difference between Brazilian Butt Lift and Butt Implants?

    The preferred technique for buttocks augmentation is the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) over Butt Implants for several reasons. Because BBL’s are a fat transfer technique, there are no foreign objects left behind in the patient and the risk for rejection, allergic reaction, infection, scarring, implant displacement, and/or sagging, is drastically reduced if not completely non-existent. Butt Implants are also limited in their ability to deliver curvier results. Since butt implants only add volume, they cannot offer the fat sculpting results that a BBL can deliver with the use of liposuction. The liposuction of the hips, lower back, and abdomen simply further enhance the results for a more satisfying contour. In addition, BBL offer a smoother, more natural result than butt implants can.

  • What are the effects of gaining and losing weight before and after Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?

    Before the surgery, it can be beneficial in certain cases to gain a few pounds so that the surgeon can have more fat to transfer and sculpt from. But this is not recommended without first consulting Dr. Malek, and usually only reserved for patients who do not have enough fat to pull from.

    Losing and gaining weight (fat) after surgery should be generally avoided, and can be difficult to predict the outcome of such. It is always recommended to maintain current body weight through healthy lifestyle habits.

  • How much does a Brazilian Butt Lift cost?

    Pricing varies based on body and skin types along with combined procedures performed. Please call or schedule a consultation for more information.

  • How is the fat transferred in a BBL?

    Fat is harvested from other body areas, such as the abdomen, hips, lower back, or thighs, using liposuction. The extracted fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks at various depths for a natural look and feel.

  • What is the recovery process like after a BBL?

    Recovery varies per individual but typically involves swelling and soreness for a few weeks. Patients are advised to avoid sitting directly on their buttocks for about two weeks and may need to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling. Frequent light walking is encouraged during recovery to encourage blood flowin the transferred fat area.

  • Are there risks associated with a BBL?

    Like any surgery, BBL has risks, including infection, scarring, pain, and complications related to fat transfer. The most significant risk is fat embolism, which can be life-threatening. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in BBLs can help minimize these risks.

  • How long do the results of a BBL last?

    The results of a BBL can be long-lasting. However, the longevity of the results depends on factors such as weight fluctuations, lifestyle, and how well the body accepts the fat transfer.

  • Can a BBL be combined with other procedures?

    Yes, a BBL can be combined with other procedures like tummy tuck or breast augmentation for a more comprehensive body transformation. This should be discussed with your surgeon.

  • What should I expect during the consultation for a BBL?

    During the consultation, Dr. Malek will evaluate your health, discuss your aesthetic goals, explain the procedure, and assess your body to determine if you’re a good candidate. This is also a time to discuss the risks, recovery, and costs.
