As we say goodbye to the old year and look ahead to a new one, it’s sometimes a good time to reflect on what we’ve accomplished and what we still want to achieve. Many of my patients tell me that it was at the beginning of a new year that they made the decision to get a Brazilian butt lift (also called butt augmentation or BBL).
After spending so much of their lives doing things for others—partners, children, parents or others—they were ready to do something for themselves, and Brazilian butt lift surgery was what they really wanted. They say it not only changed their shape but changed the way they felt about themselves, giving them more satisfaction and self-confidence. Maybe you too feel this way and would benefit from this body enhancing procedure.
An effective way to turn back time
As the years go by and people age, it's very common for their butt to droop, sag and become flabby. These changes are most often caused by:
- Weight gain
- Weight loss
But these changes don’t have to be permanent! A Brazilian butt lift not only can reverse them and give you back the butt you used to have, it can give you a better butt and more attractive figure than you had before by creating a more pleasing balance between the size of your butt and the rest of your body. As well as the Brazilian butt lift, I also offer a wide range of other body sculpting procedures to help you achieve a more shapely body. To learn more, click here.
A Brazilian butt lift uses your own fat so there’s no chance of rejection
During Brazilian butt lift surgery, I use liposuction to remove excess fat from certain parts of your body and transfer it to the buttock area that needs augmentation, commonly the higher area of the buttocks to give it a lifted, fuller appearance. Typically, I extract this fat from the lower back, “love handles” and abdomen and use it to shape the top and sides of the butt. I can also slim and trim away where you have too much fat while building up where you would like more fullness. Since this fat is from your own body, there’s no chance of rejection.
Want even more dramatic results? Combine a BBL with liposuction
While undergoing a Brazilian butt lift procedure, many of my patients take advantage of liposuction to also remove fat from their tummy, waist area and thighs, giving them the beautiful, sexy hourglass silhouette they’ve always wanted.

Is a Brazilian butt lift safe?
If you have been considering a Brazilian butt lift but weren’t sure if the procedure was safe, I want you to know that as a plastic surgeon who has been performing this type of body contouring surgery for over 20 years, I can confidently say that I have encountered very few complications in my patients as a result. In fact, since it was first introduced in 1996, the BBL is now one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures I perform in my practice.
How long does the surgery take?
Because of the way the fat is extracted with liposuction and then processed and reinjected for permanent, natural-looking results, butt augmentation surgery typically takes 2-4 hours. However, this depends on the amount of liposuction performed and the amount of fat to be reinjected into the buttocks.
Should I gain or lose weight before the procedure?
While it varies from person to person, you should be a few pounds over your ideal weight before having BBL surgery. The important factor is that once you have gained weight for a BBL, you need to maintain that same weight afterwards in order to maintain the results.
How long will the results last?
A Brazilian butt lift is a very long-lasting procedure. On average, expect about 50% of the injected fat to stay in the area and about 50% to be reabsorbed by the body, which is why I always put in extra fat deposits.
How soon can I go back to work after a butt lift?
Following the procedure, special compression garments are typically worn for several weeks to help reduce swelling and to help shape the butt. Patients usually can go back to work about one week after the procedure. What seems to work well for my patients who work at a desk is to sit with their weight on their thighs and not their buttocks, using a Boppy pillow.
