Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

Los Angeles is the home of celebrity beauty trends, and the Brazilian butt lift (BBL) certainly qualifies as a procedure that’s become extremely popular because of a few well-known patients. The surgery takes fat from an area of the body where it’s unwanted and uses it to enhance the buttocks, providing the best of both worlds. Women and men considering a Brazilian butt lift travel from Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, and throughout the South Bay to our Torrance plastic surgery practice to have our plastic surgeons perform the procedure.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Our doctors at South Bay Plastic Surgeons use modern fat grafting techniques to perform Brazilian butt lift surgery. Despite the name, the procedure creates a more rounded shape, but doesn’t actually lift sagging buttocks. (That’s achieved with a body contouring procedure called a butt lift.) Fat grafting—also called fat transfer—is a 3-step process that includes using liposuction to remove fat from an area of the body, such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs; purifying it; then transferring it to the buttocks.

The Fat Transfer Process

In addition to Brazilian butt lift surgery, fat transfer can also be used for natural breast enhancement and as a filler for facial rejuvenation. The fat transfer technique always involves these 3 steps:

  1. Liposuction
  2. Spinning extracted fatty tissue to remove impurities
  3. Injecting the purified fat into the buttocks

Synthetic implants for buttocks enhancement remain an option, but the Brazilian butt lift is much more common. Because it uses a patient’s own fat, the procedure is natural and the fat that survives the transfer process provides better results.

Our surgeons use various methods to process the fat, taking care to avoid damaging the cells. They then inject the concentrated fat in small droplets, allowing blood vessels to grow into the fat and allowing the fat cells to live permanently in their new location. The body absorbs some of the injected fat, which is accounted for during the process.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

One thing to remember about the recovery after a Brazilian butt lift is that there are 2 treatment areas that must heal—the liposuction site and the buttocks. It takes most patients about 2 weeks for the bruising and swelling to gradually resolve. Our surgeons provide detailed post-op instructions that should be followed closely. You will need to wear a special compression garment that helps reduce swelling and enhance healing where your surgeon performed liposuction.

You also need to avoid sitting or lying directly on your buttocks for several weeks. We can recommend special pillows designed to prevent putting direct pressure on the buttocks. Visible results emerge gradually for several months as the body absorbs some of the fat and blood vessels attach to fat cells. Even though there is some inconvenience and discomfort during the initial stages of the recovery, most of our patients say the results exceed their expectations and they’re very happy with their new contours.
