What Exactly is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Many individuals are unhappy with their flat, small, low-positioned, or disproportionate butt—and sometimes it can be impossible to do anything about it with exercise due to genetics and how each person’s specific body stores fat.

A Brazilian butt lift (sometimes called a BBL) enhances both the size and contour of the buttocks by “borrowing” fat from another area of the body where it can be spared and using it as filler. The result is a curvier, sexier butt that looks and feels exceptionally natural. 

Best BBL Preparation Practices

  • Arrange a ride home from your appointment
  • Arrange for someone to help you at home for at least 24 hours 
  • Stock up on everything you’ll need (we will provide a list)

What Happens During Your BBL Procedure?

Dr. G performs Brazilian butt lifts in the San Diego and La Jolla areas in two steps: liposuction and fat grafting. The procedure takes 2-3 hours. The first thing that will happen is skin cleansing. We will ensure the area is clean, and then the area will be marked with a marker to help guide Dr. G. Next, you’ll receive either anesthesia or IV sedation with local anesthesia. Dr. G will carefully create small incisions in the area where fat will be removed.

(This is usually the stomach, flanks, or thighs, but will depend on each patient.) Using the incisions Dr. G made, a specialized cannula will enter the skin and break up the fat, as well as suction it out of the body. This fat will then be processed and purified, and either placed within syringes or a specialized canister for transfer back to the body.

Once the purified fat is in the syringe or canister, it can be injected into the buttocks to add volume where desired. The fat also includes stems cells which will help improve skin thickness and texture on your buttocks. Dr. G will then close the incisions, and you will be fitted with a compression garment to help with healing. 

For the Best BBL Recovery 

  • Expect 10-21 days of recovery time 
  • You may experience redness, swelling, bruising, and/or discomfort
  • Swelling can up to a few months, but will subside each day
  • Take short walks to help with circulation
  • Avoid vigorous activity for 4-6 weeks (including lifting)
  • You won’t be able to properly sit down or sleep on your back for approximately two weeks
  • You can begin using a “donut seat” after two weeks
  • The best way to ensure a smooth recovery is to follow our guidelines

You’ll notice very early results immediately after your procedure, but results will be finalized at six months. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle and remain at a stable weight, results from a BBL last for years.
