What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift (also known as a BBL) is a procedure in which fat is removed from other parts of the body, filtered, cleaned, and then injected into the buttocks.

Who is a Good Candidate?

It’s important that you be at or close to your ideal body weight before the procedure, as undergoing significant weight loss or weight gain can alter the appearance of your results. Since BBL is performed using your own body fat, the procedure will not be effective unless you have ample donor fat to draw from in the stomach, hips, thighs, or lower back. The doctor may advise that you gain some weight before undergoing BBL if you are too slim. Clients pursuing a Brazilian butt lift in NYC or Staten Island at Allure Plastic Surgery will need to be at least 18 years old before their treatment.

Those who make good candidates for a BBL are those who:

  • Aren't happy with the size or shape of their butt
  • Don't smoke and are in good general health
  • Have sufficient fat to remove from other parts of the body
  • Understands the differences between a butt augmentation with implants and a BBL
  • Have good skin tone in the buttocks and hips
  • Have realistic goals for a BBL and understand what it can and can't do

    What are the Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

    The benefits you could gain from receiving a Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC are:

    • A more full and natural-looking and feeling butt
    • Fat removal from other areas of the body
    • Improved bodily proportions
    • A boost in self-confidence and appearance
    • No risk of an allergic reaction as it uses fat taken from your own body
    • Minimal scarring
    • Results that can last for years

    How Does the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure Work?

    We typically begin with liposuction of the waistline and hips, to provide contouring while harvesting the fat. This allows us to perform optimal sculpting to the areas around the buttocks, before then processing and strategically injecting the fat into the muscle, building you a perky, youthful shapely bum. The remaining fat is then frozen so that it can be injected between four weeks to six months following the procedure.

    The Brazilian butt lift has become one of our more popular procedures at our Staten Island, New York City facility in recent years, owing mainly to the procedure being less invasive and easier to recover from than buttock implants.

    How Long Does a BBL Last?

    During your recovery, some injected fat cells will be reabsorbed by your body. This is expected and accounted for during surgery, but it’s also very important to properly care for your buttock area during your recovery period. At about 5-6 weeks after your surgery, you’ll be able to tell what your final results look like.

    Weight gain and loss may grow or shrink the transferred fat cells, but the cells will remain in place and are considered a permanent transfer. Age is also a factor to consider, as it can cause sagging and tissue loss over time. In general, expect your results to last for several years or much longer.

    Your Recovery Period

    Although there may be minor post-operative bruising and swelling after a butt enhancement in Staten Island's or NYC's Allure Plastic Surgery, recovery should be no more than seven to ten days. Naturally, the body will absorb some of the injected fat, but the majority of the fat will remain in the area with a good blood supply for long-lasting results. Subsequent injections can be used to “build” the results and shape the area according to your desire.

    BBL is a safe, non-surgical procedure, so it does not have the longer downtimes associated with butt augmentation via implants. You will be able to return to work within 3-5 days. However, it may still take 4-6 weeks for you to return to aerobic exercises and weightlifting. Gentle, mild walks are encouraged to help improve circulation and blood flow. You will be fitted with a compression garment for the first 6 weeks, which helps you to maintain the new improved contours in your buttocks.

    What is the Cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC?

    It can be difficult to put an exact price tag on the cost of a Brazilian butt lift at Allure Plastic Surgery, because the procedure tends to vary so significantly, from patient to patient. The cost of this procedure will fluctuate based on a variety of factors, including the location of the incision, the anesthesia charges, and so forth. Additionally, if a patient has more risk associated with their procedure than another, this can be an added cost. During your consultation, your doctor will be able to give you a detailed quote for the procedure.

    What is the difference between a Brazilian butt lift and butt augmentation?

    With a Brazilian butt lift, fat is extracted via liposuction from a donor area such as the hips, thighs or belly and then is purified and injected into the rear end, creating a more rounded and feminine aesthetic. BBL has the added benefit of slimming and sculpting the donor areas while accomplishing its primary function of enhancing the back side. Butt augmentation with solid silicone implants can be performed in those individuals who lack sufficient donor fat for BBL. An implant procedure will carry with it greater risks, longer downtimes and of course scarring.

    Will I be able to sit down after my procedure?

    Sitting down may be slightly uncomfortable for a few weeks after your treatment, but this can be remedied by a special cushion that the doctor will suggest for you. You will wear a compression garment, which can help to minimize swelling and keep your new, improved rear end contours intact.

    How much larger will my butt be after BBL?

    Results will vary from client to client, based on the patient’s aesthetic goals as well as the amount of fat available for transfer. Our goal is to fulfill your wishes and give you the stunning physique you desire, but it is important that you are realistic in your vision for improvement.

    Butt Thread Lift

    As the buttock ages, soft tissue and volume is lost and the skin begins to sag. During the thread lift procedure, tiny barbed suture threads are placed from a hidden point above the butt to the bottom of each butt cheek. The threads then are tightened, before the small incision is closed. Three months later, the threads are tightened a bit more and, the butt achieves a higher and tighter lift.

    The procedure is ideal for those patients who don’t have enough fat for the Brazilian fat transfer technique, although those patients with enough fat can even combine the two procedures for an even greater-looking lifted and rounder butt.

    There is no scar, little to no downtime, and the procedure can even be done under local anesthesia. We are proud to be the first plastic surgery group to offer this butt lift procedure in the Staten Island, NYC area.

    Butt Injections

    Some patients seeking enhancement in their buttocks with a traditional Brazilian butt lift present with very little fatty tissue in the possible donor sites on their body, making a BBL not the best option for them. (Donor sites usually include such areas as the stomach and hips.)

    For patients with insufficient amounts of fat in these areas, we typically recommend and pursue a course of dermal fillers as an excellent alternative to natural fat that can reshape and add volume and fullness to the buttocks.

    The dermal fillers most commonly used for this purpose are Sculptra and Radiesse, as well as other hyaluronic-acid-based dermal fillers. As hyaluronic acid is already a naturally occurring component in the body, adverse reactions are very, very rare, and the fillers make noticeable improvements in the shape and size of the buttocks.

    As the buttocks are home to considerable fatty tissue and few nerve endings, very little pain or discomfort is felt during or after the procedure. Using butt injections in lieu of a standard Brazilian butt lift produces great results that can last as long as two or three years but may require several ccs of filler for a noticeable improvement. Done this way, treatment requires 30 minutes and is followed by no downtime.
