What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift, commonly called a BBL or gluteal fat grafting, is an augmentation of the buttock region using a patient’s own fat tissue. The BBL procedure does not involve any butt implants, but instead a transfer of fat into the buttocks.

This procedure involves two steps-
1. Liposuction or fat removal from an area such as the abdomen, thighs, back or flanks
2. The fat collected from the area will be inserted into the patient’s hips and buttocks to give the patient their desired look, usually increased volume and a rounder shape

One of our highly skilled surgeons can improve the proportions of the lower body with the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery by removing fat in the patient’s problem areas to enhance the buttocks, with results lasting several years.

Benefits of a BBL:

  • Enhance the curves in the lower body
  • Eliminate fat on the stomach, hips, and thighs
  • Add additional fullness to the buttocks
  • Provide an aesthetic and pleasing shape to the buttocks
  • Enhance the overall proportions by improving the balance between the lower body and the upper body

What to expect at a BBL procedure:

After the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, patients wear a compression garment to help with the healing process. Mild bruising and swelling is to be expected.

Additionally, it is recommended that patients minimize time sitting on or putting pressure on their butt. Padding can help relieve a lot of the pressure.

Am I a good candidate for BBL?

An ideal candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift is in healthy condition, is at or close to their ideal body weight, and has realistic expectations for the procedure. If this is true to you, you’ll likely be a good candidate for a BBL if:

  • You want a butt augmentation without implants
  • You have enough fat stores in other areas to harvest for the buttock injection
  • You are willing and able to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for several weeks after the procedure

If you are not a good candidate for the Brazilian Butt lift, you may be a good Non-surgical BBL candidate as an alternate option.
