What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) allows patients to augment the volume and shape of their buttocks through surgical fat injections (fat transfer). This cosmetic procedure involves first removing fat from a target area on the body. For example, patients may want to slim down their hips, abdomen, or thighs. This fat is prepared and then injected into strategic locations on the buttocks, reshaping and boosting the volume that lasts. Thus, the procedure can create an impressive figure and silhouette by both slimming areas around the butt and increasing buttock size with a single surgery.

Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift

  • Improve aesthetics of multiple body areas

  • Slim down trouble body areas with liposuction

  • Natural-looking results

  • Enhanced buttock contour and figure

  • Increase buttock projection

  • Lasting boost to self-confidence

  • Improved, balanced body proportions

During your consultation, Dr. Chiu will evaluate your natural body type and butt shape to discuss the best options for achieving your butt enhancement goals.

Is a Butt Augmentation Right for Me?

Surgery may be the only way for many people to see an increase in the size of their buttocks. Diet and exercise can only do so much in the face of certain genetic predispositions. A buttock augmentation procedure offers the chance to sculpt your body into the one you’ve always desired. A Brazilian butt lift offers a more natural solution compared to artificial butt implants (e.g., silicone implants). However, the right candidate may need a few traits to get the most out of this procedure.

Generally, an ideal BBL candidate will:

  • Be in overall favorable health (poor health can increase surgical risk)
  • Have enough excess fat to transfer to buttocks (patients without fat may still be candidates for other butt augmentation options, both surgical and non-surgical)
  • Have good skin tone in hips and buttocks (i.e., no severe drooping or sagging skin, as this does not treat these concerns)
  • Be a non-smoker (smoking and tobacco use can increase surgical risk)
  • Have healthy expectations and be ready to clearly discuss goals with their surgeon (for better personalization and results that match what you want)

Overview of a Typical Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
Each BBL surgery we perform in Beverly Hills is personalized and shaped to match the patient’s desires. Some variables include the amount of fat removed, where the fat is removed from, and the target figure you want. However, the general outline remains mostly the same, as outlined below. Each element is adapted to your needs.

Initial Consultation

Every successful procedure is built on the foundation of a successful consultation. The process starts with this one-on-one meeting with Dr. Chiu to discuss your goals and expectations. Some of the key elements of a quality consultation include:

  • Openly discussing your expectations
  • Asking any questions you might have
  • Going over your medical history and any current concerns

If a BBL is right for you based on the consult, then the next step is to schedule your surgery day. Even if a BBL is not your path to butt augmentation, we can suggest alternate approaches that may better suit you.

Preparing for the Procedure

Preparing for a BBL is almost always straightforward. However, that does not make it any less important. Proper preparation is critical to increasing the safety of your procedure and the outcome of your results. Dr. Chiu will provide you with clear steps on how to prepare, and you can always call our office if anything comes up. Some of the usual aspects of preparation include:

  • Avoiding all tobacco use
  • Pausing certain medications (e.g., blood thinners)
  • Obtaining necessary bloodwork or tests
  • Maintaining current weight
  • Arranging for someone to drive you home
  • Arranging for someone to help you around the house for a week or two

Day of the Procedure

On the day of surgery, patients will come to the surgical center, where Dr. Chiu will perform the Brazilian butt lift. Once you arrive, we go over their plan with them. Only once you are ready do we move forward. You will receive general anesthesia for a pain-free surgery that lasts 4 or more hours. The duration depends on the areas of fat removal and how much will be injected. The surgery itself consists of three main steps:

  • Removing fat cells from target sections through specialized liposuction
  • Purifying and preparing the fat for injection
  • Injecting fat into target areas of the buttocks to increase volume and enhance shape

Once everything is complete, you will be brought back to consciousness and can rest for a time. Then, once you are ready, you can return home that same day with your driver (ideally a close friend or family member) or go to an aftercare for professional medical care.

Recovering from Your Brazilian Butt Lift

The total recovery time for a butt augmentation procedure is about 4-6 months. However, only a small portion of that is going to be downtime. While recovery times and experiences vary, the usual outline mostly remains similar, as outlined below.
  • The First Week

    Patients can expect swelling and discomfort around all surgical sites. This period should be spent at home, away from all work and physical activity. You will need to avoid sitting or putting any pressure on your buttocks. So this means mostly lying on your stomach while you heal. Patients also need to wear compression garments to aid in healing.

  • The Second Week

    Expect some improvements in swelling and any discomfort. Most patients can return to work and very light activity by the end of the second week. Continue to avoid putting pressure on your buttocks.

  • Third to Fourth Weeks

    After a follow-up visit, Dr. Chiu usually will advise patients that they can put light weight on the buttocks again. However, this is usually only done through a modified position and the use of a special pillow or cushion to reduce strain.

  • Beyond

    After 4 weeks post-BBL, patients can resume sitting without any restrictions. Additionally, you can make a gradual full return to your active routine. Residual swelling should continue to fade, with full recovery at about the 4-6 month mark.

What Are the Results Like?

Results from Brazilian butt lift procedures can be impressive when performed by the right surgeon and with a smooth recovery period. Full results are best seen about 6 months following surgery, when residual swelling fades and some of the fat settles. Because of this, the initial results for your BBL may look larger than expected. This is because we slightly overfill the buttocks to account for some fat absorption. Once this happens, your buttocks will shift to the desired size and shape. This final shape of your beautiful results can last for years, providing long-term benefits.

Results can last for years, but a healthy lifestyle is still vital. Future weight fluctuations can interfere with the appearance of your results. So we recommend maintaining a strong routine of exercise and healthy food intake.
