A Brazilian butt lift consists of fat grafting that is notable for its natural-looking results. The procedure involves the following steps:
The procedure is usually performed under anesthesia.
Our surgeon then uses liposuction to remove fat from other areas of your body, such as your hips, stomach, and thighs. Liposuction itself involves making incisions in the skin, and then using a tube to remove fat from the body.
The fat stores that have just been removed from your body are purified and readied for injection into your buttocks.
Our surgeon finishes by injecting the processed fat into specific areas of the buttocks to create a more rounded, full look. They make three to five incisions around the buttocks for fat transfers.
Both liposuction and fat transfer incisions are closed up with stitches. Your surgeon then applies a compression garment against the affected areas of skin to minimize your risk of bleeding.
Unlike other forms of buttock surgery, such as placement of silicone buttock implants, a Brazilian butt lift is touted for providing more natural-looking results while also creating more roundness in your backside.
Duration: The BBL can take anywhere between 2-4 hours. The duration for a Brazillian butt lift varies depending on the size of the patient, the number of areas to be addressed with liposuction, if its a standalone BBL or if complete body contouring is planned along with the BBL.
Recovery time is about four weeks, with most patients being cleared to go back to work within 1-2 weeks after surgery.
