Many patients who have lost their confidence as a result of their flat and sagging buttocks choose to have this procedure when going to the gym has failed to give them the shape and volume they desire. Brazilian Butt Lift is the right surgical procedure to enhance your buttocks by transferring unwanted fat to your hips and buttocks while contouring your body at the same time.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Brazilian Butt Lift involves grafting fat from different parts of the body and transferring it to the buttocks to enhance its shape and size. BBL is one of the most requested procedures by patients due to its growing popularity with women who are concerned about their flat or sagging buttocks. What makes a Brazilian Butt Lift even more appealing is that patients also benefit from fat removal around the midriff, resulting in a curvaceous figure.

How is BBL performed?

During a Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, the patient undergoes VASER Liposuction* to remove fat from their abdomen, flanks and back using ultrasound energy. The fat is then processed and purified for a greater chance of survival. The highest quality fat cells are then transferred into the buttocks and hips using a cannula. It is important to know that around 30-40% of the injected fat will be reabsorbed into the body. The exact amount varies for every patient and final results depend on aftercare.

Permanent Results

The fat transfer from a Brazilian Butt Lift will remain in your buttocks permanently. While it may take up to six months to see how much fat has survived, once the swelling goes down you will have a more pronounced and contoured shape. Patients will need to wear a compression garment to facilitate the healing process and to help protect the newly placed fat cells for long-lasting results.

*VASER Liposuction® is the most advanced form of liposuction used to eliminate fat and enhance body contour

Frequently Asked Questions

What is BBL?

Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as a BBL is a surgical procedure which enhances the look of the buttocks by removing fat from different parts of the body and transferring the fat to the hips and buttocks. Liposuction is a very popular treatment performed mostly on the abdomen, love handles and back of the patient and is mostly referred to as 360 Liposuction.

What should I expect during my consultation with the surgeon?

During your consultation with the surgeon you will discuss your expectations and potential results. He will go through your medical history and test results with you to ensure your suitability for the procedure. After clearly explaining how VASER Liposuction and fat transfer are performed he will physically examine you and draw very detailed markings on your treatment areas. The markings will be unique to your body and they will define precisely where your surgeon is going to perform VASER Liposuction and fat transfer. You will then be given information about your post-op recovery and be prepared for your surgery.

Will this procedure help me lose weight?

Liposuction is not a weight loss surgery. It is a surgical procedure used to reshape your body by removing stubborn pockets of fat which some patients find difficult to shed through exercise and diet. But, in order to maintain your results, you will need to ensure that you start eating healthy and exercise regularly to have the body you’ve always dreamed of!

How long downtime do I need to recover?

The duration of your recovery depends on how your body heals, your lifestyle and how thoroughly you follow the aftercare guidelines given to you by your surgeon. Although everyone’s body recovers differently, final results can generally be seen around 6 months after the surgery. Throughout your healing period, drinking plenty of water, avoiding smoking and eating reduced salt and sugary foods will help reduce your swelling and help your body heal a lot quicker. Make sure you check out our top BBL recovery tips!

Will I lose the transferred fat if my weight fluctuates?

After a BBL procedure your body will reabsorb around 30-40% of the transferred fat. To make sure that the remaining fat remains in your buttocks and hips permanently depends you must follow the aftercare guidelines given by your surgeon. Additionally, if you do rigorous exercise, lose a huge amount of weight or live an unhealthy lifestyle you may lose some of the injected fat as they are your own fat cells.

When can I expect to return to work?

It depends on the type of job you do. Normally, you can return to work within 14 days if your job is sedentary. For more active jobs we recommend taking 3 weeks off work. Don’t forget that you can’t sit down on your buttocks for 2 weeks following BBL surgery without using your BBL pillow.

When can I expect to see my results?

Some patients may see results immediately, but most will start seeing their results 6-8 weeks after the procedure once the swelling has subsided. However, it can take up to 6 months to 1 year to achieve the final result.

Don’t forget that specific results cannot be guaranteed as every individual has different bodies therefore everyone’s results will vary.

Will I have any scars?

The only scars you will have will be those from the Liposuction incisions and the BBL incisions where the fat is transferred. They are very small and they will fade away in time with the use of scar gels. Our expert surgeons make sure that the incisions are placed discretely so that they’re concealed by your underwear.
