Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery enhances your derriere’ by injecting or transferring your own body fat into your buttocks to create firmer, fuller cheeks. Also called Butt Lift Fat Transfer, Butt lift surgery has an added benefit as it slims down other parts of your body after the fat is liposuctioned. This helps to reshape your waist, back and flanks and increase the size of your buttocks. Most patients looking for butt enlargement generally lack fat in their backside area, and are unhappy with the lack of fullness.
The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is the fastest growing cosmetic procedure in the US. This procedure is also known as buttock reshaping, buttock augmentation, or buttock uplift. The procedure involves a 2 in 1 surgery where liposuction is first performed using a power assisted device. The fat is collected in a sterile container, purified, and then carefully re-injected into the butt and hips to create a larger buttock dome, and curved hips. The typical Brazilian butt lift involves a high definition 360 degree liposuction around the abdomen waist and back also call a Snatched Waist . This provides ample fat to use for buttock enlargement as well as the ability to tighten and “snatch” the waist.
Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Butt Enlargement / Augmentation results are immediate. You will see a tighter midsection with the butt and hip area appearing larger rounder and fuller. Initially, there is some swelling, so the final result will appear slightly reduced. Most butt lift fat transfers can take 6 months to a year to fully heal. All surgery carries some risks and the Brazilian butt lift is no different. When the fat is injected subcutaneously, the risks of serious complications are lessened.

When preparing for pre and post BBL surgery – it’s important to be healthy before and after surgery. Eating well, NOT smoking are key factors in having a successful outcome. If you have any medical conditions, preoperative testing or evaluation by your primary care doctor may be required before being cleared to have surgery. On average, about 70% of the fat that is injected lasts long term. Most patients will need 1-2 weeks off of work for recovery and about 1-2 months out of the gym. Fat transplantation is done under full general anesthesia in a fully licensed out patient surgery center. The procedure takes about 2-3 hours to complete depending on how many areas of liposuction are being done.

Combining a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) with Lipo 360° liposuction is a very popular surgical combination. This procedure is perfect for individuals who are looking for a more contoured midsection- also called snatched waist – hourglass surgery , in addition to adding shape and fullness to your butt. BBL – butt augmentation procedures use liposuction to remove fat from specific midsection areas. The removed fat is then processed, purified and reinjected into the buttocks area to enhance the shape and symmetry of the butt and hip areas. The waist, love handles and back fat are also removed hence Lipo 360 – to give your the enhanced appearance of a smaller, snatched waist.
