Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)
Brazilian Butt Lift also called BBL Surgery. It is a buttock enhancement procedure that improves the shape, size of the buttocks using your fat without implants. The popularity of the Brazilian buttock lift has grown tremendously nowadays. Women desire more prominent and perky buttocks.
Over time, factors such as pregnancy, fluctuations in your weight, sun damage, or aging can contribute to poor tissue elasticity resulting in sagging of the buttocks. Fortunately, there is a way to improve the size, shape, and contour of your buttocks.

But what if you want to augment the size and shape of your buttocks without resorting to implants? One particular technique is known as the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). This procedure involves using liposuction to transfer fat from one area of your body – hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs, for example –to the tissues of your buttocks.
Brazilian Buttock Lift Benefits
- It can increase the fullness, roundness, and projection of your buttocks.
- It can improve the balance of your figure.
- BBL surgery can improve your self-image and boost your self-confidence.
During a Brazilian Butt Lift, excess sagging skin and fat are removed to attain a smoother and more pleasing contour. In some cases, liposuction is also used to achieve better contouring.
Brazilian Buttock Lift (BBL) vs. Buttock Implants
Both Brazilian buttock lift and butt implants increase the size and shape of your buttocks. The advantage of Brazilian buttock lift surgery is that it increases buttocks without implants or using your natural fatty tissue, while buttock implants are a form of silicone. With our cosmetic surgeon, the procedure of Brazilian buttock lift has a low risk for complications or infections compared to buttock implants.
Unlike buttock implants, BBL surgery aims for proving more natural-looking results. It can also address certain other issues, such as sagging butt and shapelessness because of aging.
If you may not have enough fat, buttock implants are the only way to achieve your goal. If you do have enough fat, then Brazilian Buttock lift surgery is the best option. However, it is important to know the risks of having implants, like capsular contracture and a higher risk of infection. The good thing about buttock implants can also look and feel less natural compared to Brazilian buttock lifts. When possible, we prefer BBL surgery over butt implants for several reasons.
Read more below to know more about the advantages of Brazilian Buttock lift surgery.
Brazilian Buttock Lift Procedure
The procedure of BBL Surgery is usually under general anesthesia or you may choose IV sedation depending on your medical situation. It takes between 2 and 4 hours either at the hospital or surgery center facility. Before the Brazilian buttock lift, you may ask for medication if anesthesia makes you sick. If you are smoking, you should stop it before and after BBL surgery.
The Brazilian Buttock Lift (BBL) procedure starts with the fat extraction process by removing excess fat from your hips, abdomen, lower back, flanks, and thighs. Liposuction is performed at three different areas of the body to get the highest quality fat. During liposuction, it doesn’t only remove the excess fat but also contours your body areas. If you don’t have enough fat, we may instruct you to gain weight before BBL surgery to give your desired results. It is also important that buttocks skin not be too loose or too tight to see the best results possible.
After a surgeon completes liposuction, the fat suctioned from the areas is carefully purified and processed. A special cannula used to be able to transfer purified fat into the buttocks. Normally, for about 300cc to 1,200 ccs of fat to each buttock. We’ll make sure the buttocks are symmetrical and look natural.
Life After BBL Surgery
Like any cosmetic surgery, you will need to take special care after Brazilian Buttock Lift (BBL) surgery. You won’t be able to sit on your butt for about two weeks following BBL surgery.
There will be a small amount of swelling, slight bruising, and pain, but is usually within a few days after. You will be able to resume your activities after four weeks of rest. Expect to wear a compression garment to speed up the recovery process within 3 to 6 weeks and to minimize your risk of bleeding. You can resume light exercise about three weeks after your Brazilian Buttock lift and slowly work way back up to your normal pre-surgery exercise.
Results are usually shown within 6 months of BBL Surgery. After the remaining swelling has gone away, that’s the time you are fully healed. That time, your curvier buttocks will be noticeable and how you look will improve in the way clothing fits you.
The removal of fats will not return to the area, and fat cells that survive the transfer to the buttocks will remain for years to come. However, weight changes can affect the results. So, maintain a stable weight to keep BBL surgery results looking their best.
Brazilian Buttock Lift Side Effects
Despite the advantages, there are also potential side effects of BBL surgery to consider although these are rare.
- fat embolism in the heart or lungs, which can be deadly
- lumps under the skin in the areas suctioned or injected
These mostly temporary side effects are expected after any type of surgery like Brazilian buttock Lift (BBL) surgery. Telling about your allergies, concerns, and medical conditions with your surgeon before BBL surgery can help you reduce your risks. For Brazilian buttock Lift surgery patients, these temporary side effects are worth the results.
If the procedure is botched by an inexperienced surgeon, it can cause respiratory distress and may lead to death. Another known side effect of BBL surgery is the failure of your buttocks to take up the grafted fat stored. Sometimes you may need two procedures if a certain amount of fat injected is broken down and absorbed by the body.
How Much Does a Brazilian Buttock Lift (BBL) Surgery Cost?
Many patients who undergo BBL surgery consider it as an investment in their appearance and improved self-esteem. It depends on your particular situation; the price of Brazilian buttock lift surgery may vary from $4,000 to $10,000. You may still have to consider the other costs, such as the surgeon’s expertise or experience, where you have your BBL surgery, hospital or surgery facility, anesthesia, medication, laboratory test, and aftercare. Any additional surgery will also increase your costs. Your surgeon will help you break down your particular BBL surgery costs at your first consultation.
