What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A buttocks augmentation with fat transfer — commonly referred to as a “Brazilian Butt Lift” or “BBL” — is a cosmetic surgery procedure that seeks to rejuvenate and restore the appearance of your buttocks. Age, environmental factors, and bodily changes can all conspire to reduce volume and skin resilience in the backside and create a flat, saggy appearance. For some patients, recent weight loss can mean an over-reduction in fat around their rear end. In other cases, a loss of skin elasticity leads to a flabby appearance.

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure combats these effects by restoring a healthy balance of fat and muscle in the buttocks. Fat is harvested from another place on your body — usually your abdomen or thighs — and injected into the skin of your rear end, creating the full, healthy look you desire. This added benefit of the BBL process allows you to enhance the appearance of your backside while simultaneously reducing excess fat in another part of your body. Additionally, the surgery is less intense and carries a lower risk of complications than buttocks implant surgery or fat grafting. Because the liposuction and injections are minimally invasive and use your body’s tissue, recovery time is improved, and there is little to no risk of rejection.

How do I know if a Brazilian Butt Lift is right for me?

A Brazilian Butt Lift can be an ideal solution when you are unsatisfied with the shape of your buttocks and have another area that could benefit from liposuction. A BBL can help people who have lost their ideal buttocks shape due to:

  • Age
  • Pregnancy
  • Weight loss
  • Increased activity or exercise

During your consultation at Pacific Plastic Surgery Group, you’ll have the ability to share all of your cosmetic concerns. Your cosmetic specialist will fully explain your options and help you craft a BBL surgery plan customized to your specific condition and desired outcomes.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

We take great care to tailor all of our procedures to the unique needs of each patient. Your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery plan will be customized to your needs, so your experience may vary, but there are some things every patient can expect.

Leading up to your BBL procedure, your doctor may ask you to modify your daily routine, especially if you are on medications that can cause excess bleeding. These can include aspirin, ibuprofen, anticoagulants, and some supplements. In addition, if you smoke, you may be asked to stop in the weeks leading up to your surgery. The procedure will begin with a thorough cleaning of your skin in the areas involved, both the harvest site and the region targeted for the injections. Next, a mild local anesthetic is applied to the liposuction area, and small incisions are made to allow the insertion of a small cannula that harvests the fat.

The doctor typically moves the wand around the area under the skin to allow gentle suction to remove the excess fat. Once the harvested fat is processed and purified, Dr. Wilson will prepare it for transfer. The harvested fat is then carefully injected into the skin of your buttocks, using your surgery plan as a guide. Your doctor will take great care to inject the fat only into the skin and will use his extensive training and experience to give you the most ideal, balanced, and natural-looking shape possible.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Every patient’s condition and situation is different, so our goal is to provide personalized care to each San Francisco Brazilian Butt Lift patient at Pacific Plastic Surgery Group. Ideal candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure are generally in good health overall and are at or near their goal weight. They are free of any serious medical conditions — like heart disease, diabetes, or cancer — and are committed to maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Good candidates also have healthy, realistic expectations for their results. While your cosmetic professional will thoroughly cover your complete medical history, we always recommend that you consult with your primary care provider before undergoing any elective surgical procedure.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Once your procedure is complete, you will be given some time to begin your recovery. However, most patients are able to go home to rest immediately following their surgery. During the first few days, most patients can expect bruising, swelling, and tenderness around the liposuction and injection sites. Your healthcare professional will instruct you on the best ways to alleviate this discomfort, including any prescription medication as necessary. You can expect to be up and walking again within two days.

Some fluid drainage from the incisions is common and usually ceases within 48 hours. Many patients are outfitted with a compression garment to protect the liposuction area for around eight weeks. As your body heals, it is recommended that Brazilian Butt Lift patients try to avoid sitting directly on their buttocks for at least eight weeks after surgery. Sleeping on your stomach or side is recommended, as is avoiding any strenuous exercise, especially if it includes bouncing or jostling. After about one month, it is usually safe to resume light activity. Following your doctor’s aftercare instructions will be vital to making a recovery as quick and comfortable as possible and allowing for the best chances of realizing your ideal results.
