Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a surgical procedure that uses your own fat from liposuction to improve the fullness and shape of the buttocks. This fat transfer procedure has the double benefit of creating more slender body contours while also enhancing the size and shape of your derrière. Stubborn fat that is difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise is removed and then used to augment the butt. In addition, the Brazilian Butt Lift is an excellent alternative to butt implants.
What Can the Brazilian Butt Lift Achieve?
A Fuller Backside
The Brazilian Butt Lift adds volume to increase the size of the butt to achieve a larger and fuller backside. After your procedure, you can have the butt size you have always wanted and no longer worry about filling out your jeans, dresses, or skirts.
A Rounder, Shapelier Backside
Butt augmentation with the Brazilian Butt Lift allows Dr. Chiu to improve the shape of the butt to produce a rounder “bubble butt.” Many patients experience a boost in confidence knowing that their butt finally has their ideal shape.
Because the Brazilian Butt Lift uses liposuction to harvest fat from unwanted areas, you can eliminate the stubborn fat that diet and exercise could not. This can slim down those thunder thighs, flatten your problematic belly pooch, or allow you to wave goodbye to jiggly arm fat.
What Will My Recovery Be Like?
A special compression garment is placed around the buttocks to reduce swelling and soreness that will be apparent during the first few days. Patients should avoid putting pressure on their butt by lying on their side or stomach. Our Recovery Protocol, which includes supplements, vitamins, and anti-bruising medications, will begin.
Patients are usually able to return to work and light activities. Sitting should be avoided as much as possible, and a donut-shaped or soft cushion should be used when sitting cannot be avoided. Active stretching is advised. Swelling and bruising will begin to resolve in areas treated with liposuction
2 to 4 Weeks
The majority of swelling and bruising will have resolved, and the body will have absorbed some of the fat cells. Patients should continue to avoid sitting without a cushion but can resume more strenuous physical activities.
The majority of the fat cells remaining in the butt should be permanent, and you will be able to enjoy your body’s new contours.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a good candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?
Ideal candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift should have excess fat in unwanted areas, desire more fullness in their buttocks, and be in good health.
How long until my Brazilian Butt Lift results are noticeable?
You should notice results immediately after your surgery. However, the full outcome will be most noticeable after the swelling subsides over the first several weeks.
Will my results from the Brazilian Butt Lift be permanent?
The fat cells that have been removed with liposuction are permanently eliminated from the treated area, but the fat cells that remain in the area can increase in size if weight is gained. The fat cells that remain in the butt after about three months will remain there permanently.
What type of anesthesia is used during Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?
Dr. Chiu performs the Brazilian Butt Lift with the patient under general anesthesia and supervised by a board-certified anesthesiologist to ensure the highest degree of safety.
Does buttock augmentation with fat transfer look fake?
If performed correctly, buttock augmentation should appear natural. Others may not be able to tell that you’ve undergone the procedure, but you should notice an enhanced butt size and shape. Fat transplant results are more subtle than those produced by butt implants.
Are there any side effects or pain involved with a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?
Pain and swelling are normal and should subside after the first few days following surgery. There is a potential that numbness may occur, but it should also diminish over time.
Will I have scars after my Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?
The Brazilian Butt Lift does not result in visible scarring on the butt since fine needles are used to inject the fat. Small incisions are used for liposuction that may result in inconspicuous scars that should fade over time.
