What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular cosmetic procedure that involves the transfer of fat to help create more fullness in your backside.

If you’ve heard of a Brazilian Butt Lift and are curious about more permanent results than exercise alone, read more about the procedure and how to find a reputable provider to make sure it’s done safely.

Brazilian Butt-Lift Procedure

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a type of butt augmentation procedure which uses a person’s own fat to naturally augment and shape the buttocks.

Your surgeon will use 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 cannula to remove fat from the body. The fat stores are then purified and readied for injection into your buttocks. The most common areas of the body used to donate fat via liposuction depend on the patient, though primarily the fat is removed from the abdomen, flanks (love handles), and upper back.

Your surgeon will finish by injecting the processed fat into specific areas of the buttocks to create a more rounded, full look.

Why have a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The shape and proportion of a person’s buttocks are largely determined by genetics; both your skeletal structure and how your body stores fat influence the appearance of the lower body. A healthy diet and exercise can work to achieve a healthy body weight and tone the muscles, but many patients remain unhappy with a “flat” buttocks that lacks shape, despite a healthy lifestyle.

Brazilian Butt Lift surgery can help overcome the effects of genetics by reshaping the buttocks and surrounding areas, such as the hips, lower back, and thighs.

The Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, is one of the fastest growing cosmetic surgeries in the world. Celebrities who have undergone the procedure increase its popularity on social media and in magazines.

Why is the Brazilian Butt Lift so popular?

One very strong reason that makes BBL immensely popular is that patients who get both liposuction and butt lift to enhance their figure have to undergo a longer recovery time, and they must wait to recover from one surgery before being able to jump into another cosmetic procedure. But the Brazilian butt lift will take care of two problem areas in one go, thus, will reduce the recovery period significantly.

Moreover, because the surgeons who perform butt lift surgery use patients’ own fat- the shape and size of the buttocks can be customized based on patients’ taste.

The procedure itself does not involve complicated medical terminology and is very easy to understand. Simply stated, unwanted body fat is removed by the surgeon, washed, spun and purified before being re-introduced to the body.

Most people understand this right off the bat and are comfortable with the procedure because it is their own body fat being utilized to augment the buttocks. This is dramatically different from implants, where an outside agent is introduced into the body, causing many people to feel uneasy and shy away from such a procedure.

Because the procedure only requires small incisions, there are no lasting scars, and the possibility of postoperative complications is sharply reduced. Prior to the procedure, each step is carefully explained to the patient and is not commenced until he or she is comfortable with and knowledgeable about the procedure.

Many women have commented on the natural and unblemished appearance of their body shortly after the procedure has been completed. Both family and friends have remarked they cannot tell that a procedure has been performed at all!

Is Brazilian Butt Lift surgery right for you?

The objective of a Brazilian Butt Lift is not always to end up with the largest derrière possible. It can enhance a female’s hourglass shape by achieving a slim waist and rounder, firmer buttocks. So it is an excellent match for applicants that are not pleased with the size and contour of the buttocks and hips or who’ve lost elasticity and quantity in these areas over time.
