The Brazilian buttock lift, more commonly known as a Brazilian butt lift or BBL, is an increasingly popular aesthetic procedure that helps improve the shape of your buttocks by injecting it with fat from other areas of the body. If you’re unhappy with the shape or size of your buttocks and would like to enhance the curves of your lower body, a Brazilian butt lift surgery may be right for you.
The size and shape of the buttock is determined largely by genetics. While diet and exercise can certainly help you obtain a more shapely behind, sometimes it’s not possible to get the shape you want with diet and exercise alone. This is why so many women and men are choosing to have a Brazilian buttock lift. This procedure involves a process of fat grafting to the buttock. Fat from one or more areas of your body, such as the stomach, thighs, or lower back, will be extracted, processed, and injected into your buttocks. This is an outpatient procedure with a recovery time of several weeks.
Optimal candidates for a Brazilian butt lift have buttocks that are disproportionately small, saggy, flat, and/or lack volume. Patients must also have good skin tone throughout the hips and buttocks, as well as adequate fat stores from which to pull from for the procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Ortiz will discuss the best areas for fat to be taken from your body as well as the outcome and recovery from a Brazilian buttock lift.
