The appearance of the buttocks, including the shape and volume, is an important part of an attractive and proportioned physique. With Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery, you can achieve an enhanced appearance through the use of advanced fat transfer techniques, leading to a shapely backside. This procedure appeals to a wide range of patients, all of whom want to look and feel their best. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Raj understands this and has provided helpful information below to help you determine if a BBL is right for you.

About Brazilian Butt Lift

Despite its name, BBL does not actually involve a lift of the buttocks. Instead, this procedure aims to augment the appearance of your bottom through a specialized fat transfer, effectively increasing the size and contour of your buttocks without the need for implants. Excess fat stores on the body are identified as donor sites and the fat is removed from these areas using liposuction. Common areas of excess fat on the body that can be used in the transfer include:

  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Back

The fat is then skillfully injected into the buttocks, dramatically improving its proportion.

Why People Seek Brazilian Butt Lift

A BBL is a great option for those wanting to improve their buttocks; but as with any procedure, some patients may be better suited than others for this type of cosmetic surgery. If you are considering having a BBL, the first step is to meet with a skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Raj. He can help you understand your options and provide information on what you can expect in terms of results based on your unique anatomy. Generally, if the following sound familiar, a BBL may be the right procedure for you:

Genetics has provided a natural body type you are unhappy with: The shape and size of your backside are often determined by genetics, including the location and distribution of your fat stores as well as your skeletal structure. If you find that your buttocks are less naturally full than you prefer, it may be time for a BBL to help transform your look.

You are not pleased with the results from lifestyle changes: A healthy lifestyle, including plenty of exercise and a nutritious diet, is often reflected in the body. Weight, muscle tone, and body fat percentage can all be improved by prioritizing your health; however, this does not always result in a boost to your backside. Many individuals, despite their weight training efforts and participation in targeted butt workouts, remain unsatisfied with the flat, flabby appearance of the buttocks. BBL surgery can be the final step to achieving the figure you desire.

You prefer enhancement without implants: Many patients find that a key benefit of a BBL is the fact that there are no foreign objects involved. The fat injected into the buttocks is entirely your own. You will not need to worry about implant maintenance and can enjoy your results for years to come.
