what is a brazilian butt lift (BBL)?

First popularized at the beaches of Brazil, a full butt has become very popular in America. Buttocks augmentation surgery, also known as a Brazilian butt lift, adds volume to the butt while removing unwanted fat from another area of the body. Using a fat transfer and graft, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rafi Bidros helps Houston area patients achieve a fuller, rounder butt for a youthful, curvy appearance with buttocks augmentation surgery using fat grafting. Butt augmentation by fat transfer can help you fill out clothes better and give you a more proportionate appearance. Since the Brazilian butt lift uses the patient's own fat, the results are more natural-looking with curves in all the right places.

Am I A Candidate For A Brazilian Butt Lift?

Candidates for the Brazilian butt lift will be examined to make sure they are right for this surgery. The first consideration is to confirm there is plenty of fat in certain areas to extract for the removal, grafting, and transfer process. If you are at a lower body weight or have insufficient fat to remove for the transfer, you may not be a good fit for this surgery. In addition, it is also crucial to have healthy skin laxity. If you have wrinkled or sagging skin, you may be a better fit for a surgical butt lift. If you are at a healthy weight, have unwanted fat to extract and transfer, and do not want to use an artificial device such as an implant, this enhancement surgery can be a great option for you.

how is a Brazilian butt lift performed?

Butt augmentation surgery begins with liposuction to remove excess fat from the body. Dr. Rafi Bidros will determine the best areas for fat collection during your consultation, but the most common areas are the stomach, hips, back, and thighs. Next, the harvested fat cells are purified, prepared, and injected into the buttock area in several layers. Dr. Bidros will continue adding fat until the patient’s desired volume is reached and the buttocks has a smooth, even appearance. In most cases, Dr. Bidros will add slightly more fat than the patient needs to compensate for fat that will be reabsorbed by the body during the recovery period.

how long is recovery after a brazilian butt lift?

Dr. Rafi Bidros will perform your fat grafting in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia to keep you comfortable during your surgery. Drainage tubes and/or compression garments may be used to improve healing. Patients will need to avoid sitting for at least the first 10 days and after that, sitting on a soft pillow will help prevent pressure on the area for at least 8 weeks. Most patients are able to return to work in 2-3 weeks and can usually return to their exercise regimen in 8-10 weeks. As the swelling subsides, you will begin to see your results of buttock augmentation: a long-lasting, fuller, curvier behind.

brazilian butt lift FAQ

Not Enough Fat?

For patients who do not have enough excess body fat to achieve the volume and shape they desire, butt implants may be a better option. Using flexible silicone implants placed below the gluteal muscles, butt implants can achieve results similar to butt augmentation by fat grafting.

Add a Lift?

While the added volume will decrease any sagging skin in the buttocks area, you may still need to add a butt lift to your augmentation for your best results. Dr. Bidros will remove any excess skin to prevent sagging skin from masking your augmentation results.

Brazilian Butt Lift?

While it is called a Brazilian butt lift, this procedure is actually a buttocks augmentation using fat grafting. Unlike a butt lift, a Brazilian butt lift does not remove excess skin or reshape the position of the buttocks. If you’re wondering what’s Brazilian about this, look at the full, round butts on the beaches of Brazil that inspired this procedure to get all the proof that you need.
