What Are The Surgical Considerations Of A Brazilian Butt lift

Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian Butt lift (BBL) is an increasingly popular cosmetic surgery procedure designed to plump and reshape the buttocks, adding or restoring volume in order to enhance one’s curves. Perhaps due to celebrity influencers like Kim Kardashian, more and more women in New York and New Jersey are requesting a BBL to achieve a rounder, perkier derriere.

As an added benefit, this natural butt augmentation procedure helps to achieve a coveted hourglass figure by removing unwanted fat from other areas of the body such as the waist and tummy, in order to sculpt the buttocks. If you are considering a BBL, it is important to be aware of the following surgical considerations prior to undergoing this procedure.

Ideal Candidates For A BBL

Eligibility for a Brazilian Butt Lift means having sufficient fat in other regions of the body such as the abdomen, waist or back in order to facilitate the transfer of fat to their buttocks. Individuals with adequate body fat who hope to add volume to their flat or sagging buttocks are ideal candidates. However, patients with insufficient body fat may be better suited to buttocks implants.

Type Of Anesthesia Used

This outpatient procedure is performed under a general anesthetic. In most cases, the surgery takes one to two hours, depending on the amount of fat being harvested from the donor site(s).


During a BBL, tiny incisions are made in the donor site in order to remove the unwanted fat using liposuction. Small sutures are used to carefully close all incisions and in most cases, overtime, these scars will be undetectable, as they appear almost invisible.

Long Lasting Results

Provided that you maintain a healthy lifestyle following your procedure, the results can be very long lasting, with an average of 60-85% of the injected fat thriving where it is placed. However, it is important to be aware that considerable weight fluctuations can negatively impact the outcome of this butt enhancement surgery. Thus, it is necessary to maintain your ideal weight through diet and exercise.

Risks Involved

As with any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks involved with a BBL. Although rare, prolonged swelling, infection, scarring, or unsatisfactory results are possible. However, taking your time to select a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon will greatly reduce the risk of complications. In addition, following all aftercare instructions carefully will keep you on track to achieve your desired results.

Recovering From A BBL

Although each patient is unique, in most cases, patients can resume work and other activities within one week of this procedure, at which point any swelling, bruising and discomfort has usually resolved. A compression garment must be worn for the first two to four weeks in order to minimize post-operative swelling.
