What is Buttock Augmentation (Brazilian Butt Lift)?
Look your best from every angle. Many of our aesthetic procedures focus on the parts of the body we most readily notice when you look in the mirror, whether we’re improving the bust line, smoothing wrinkles, or reshaping the nose. However, the shape and volume of your backside is critical to your appearance too. Our Brazilian butt lift procedure lifts and enhances your butt to achieve your ideal curves.

Fat Grafting for Buttocks Augmentation - The Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, has gained popularity over the last several years, becoming one of the most popular options for buttocks contouring. It is a fat grafting procedure with two distinct phases. First, fat is removed from an area with excess deposits, often the lower back, thighs, hips, or stomach. This fat is cleaned and prepared to ensure that only the best fat cells are collected. Stage two is implantation where the extracted fat is injected into the buttocks. A series of injections are used, allowing for precise, even placement of the grafted material. Transferred fat cells permanently integrate into the tissues and establish a blood supply.
The Brazilian butt lift creates the desired volume without implants, instead using a patient’s natural tissues for augmentation. Our patients love that the BBL contours two areas with a single procedure: the buttocks and the area where the fat is extracted. It’s important to note that some of the transferred fat may be resorbed by the body. Fat loss is common immediately after the procedure, but once the fat is established, it usually remains long-term. We have performed this procedure many times and know how to achieve a consistent, natural-looking result.
Recovery from Buttocks Augmentation
Activities are very limited for the first two weeks, and partially restricted for four to six weeks after surgery. We’ll provide detailed recovery instructions after your procedure. Our patients often tell us that their results are well worth the recovery.
- Discomfort, bruising and swelling are normal and can be controlled with medication.
- Limited sitting for two weeks after surgery. Short car rides and using the toilet are ok.
- You will be placed in a special compression garment to control the swelling and protect the buttock fat grafts.
- Return to light activities and work 5-7 days days after surgery.
- Resume full activities 4-6 weeks after surgery.
We are available if you have any questions or concerns during recovery. Reach out at any time, and a member of our team will happily help you find the answers you need. We’ll also check in on your healing several times at post-operative visits as we guide you through the recovery process from a Brazilian butt lift.
