What is a Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift, is a surgical procedure that augments the shape and size of your buttocks using autologous fat transfer. During this procedure, a surgeon removes excess fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, love handles, and lower back using liposuction, and then strategically injects some of this fat into the buttocks. Not only does a Brazilian butt lift make your buttocks shapelier and more rounded, but it also improves the contours of the donor areas by reducing excess fat.
What Are The Aims Of BBL?
A Brazilian butt lift generally aims to:
- Increase the size of the buttocks
- Aims to make the buttocks appear fuller and more lifted
- Reduce fat from the abdomen, lower back, hips, and thighs
- Improve overall body figure and aesthetics
- Make flat and small buttocks perkier
- Restore self-confidence
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A BBL?
A Brazilian butt lift in dubai can help individuals from all walks of life achieve their body aesthetic goals. However, due to the surgical nature of this procedure, some candidacy criteria must be met.
To qualify for a Brazilian butt lift, you have to make sure that:
- You are in good overall health.
- You should be a non-smoker or willing to quit smoking at least six weeks before and after the treatment for optimal results.
- You are seeking enhancement of buttock size or shape.
- You are seeking to enhance your body contours in ways that may not be achievable with diet and exercise alone.
- You have adequate fat in potential donor areas for the fat transfer.
- You have realistic expectations of the treatment and its results.
Your doctor will give you pre-op guidelines to help you prepare for your BBL surgery. Some of those guidelines are as follows:
- Ensure all required medical and lab tests are completed as directed by your surgeon.
- It is advised to stop smoking at least 4-6 weeks before the procedure.
- Discuss with your doctor about avoiding certain foods, medicines, and supplements that may increase the risk of bleeding.
- Follow your surgeon’s specific instructions regarding fasting before surgery.
- Prepare comfortable, loose-fitting clothing for the day of surgery to ensure your comfort post-procedure.
A Brazilian butt lift is typically performed under general anesthesia according to the surgeon’s recommendation and the extent of the procedure.
Here are the steps involved in a Brazilian butt lift procedure:
Liposuction for Fat Extraction
The BBL procedure often begins with liposuction to harvest fat from other areas of your body for transfer to the buttocks. The surgeon creates small incisions in areas like the abdomen, thighs, and lower back, where excess fat is available for extraction. Then, a thin cannula is inserted under the skin and is moved back and forth to break up the fat cells. The broken fat is suctioned out using a vacuum device or syringe.
The extracted fat undergoes processing to purify it before being used for grafting. This process involves purifying the harvested fat by removing impurities such as blood, fluids, and cellular debris. The remaining fat is optimized for injections to be administered in the buttock region.
In the final step, autologous fat is injected into the backside of the thighs and areas over the gluteal muscles. These injections are administered into multiple anatomical layers, including intramuscular, subfascial, and subcutaneous layers. The amount of fat injected into the target area varies depending on the individual and the desired outcome.
After the Brazilian butt lift procedure, you will likely experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort in the liposuction and injection sites for a few days. Some liquid discharge from the liposuction sites is normal and expected. It is generally recommended to start light walking as soon as possible to aid circulation and plan for at least two weeks off work for recovery.
Significant recovery typically occurs within several weeks, but full healing can take longer. After that, you may resume regular exercise. Full recovery times vary, but many patients recover within two to three months.
It is important to note that the recovery duration may vary from person to person, as everyone’s body is unique. To ensure smoother recovery, ensure to follow your doctor’s instructions.
The aim of post-op care is to help you avoid complications and get the best outcome after a Brazilian butt lift in dubai. Your surgeon may ask you to abide by some instructions in this regard. Those instructions include the following:
- Avoid sleeping on your back or sides for 10-14 days after surgery.
- Avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for 10-14 days, as recommended by your surgeon, to ensure proper healing.
- Protect incision sites from direct sunlight until fully healed, as advised by your surgeon.
- Take the medication your doctor prescribes. Post-BBL medications are generally meant to relieve discomfort and nausea and prevent constipation.
- Maintain a balanced diet to support healing, unless otherwise advised by your surgeon. Only take clear liquids for the first few hours after surgery. You may advance to solid foods gradually.
- Stay well-hydrated following surgery, aiming for 8-10 glasses of water per day, unless otherwise advised by your doctor.
- Avoid strenuous activities for about two weeks after surgery. You may, however, resume your routine activities after a few days.
- Avoid swimming pools and hot tub baths for at least three weeks or until your surgeon approves.
Initial changes may be visible immediately, but these are not the final results. The injected fat adds volume to the buttocks, with initial results visible immediately after the procedure. However, these initial results are typically influenced by swelling and the presence of BBL compression garments.
As swelling subsides, some reduction in initial volume is normal, reflecting the final shaping of the buttocks. It’s normal for the body to reabsorb some of the injected fat, which may slightly reduce the initial volume. The final results of the BBL treatment are typically visible six months after the procedure.
A Brazilian butt lift results in a more rounded, curvy backside that adds nicely to your overall body aesthetics. Besides enhancing your figure, this buttock augmentation surgery also improves your body image.
The longevity of BBL results varies; some patients may require touch-ups or follow-up sessions.

What Should You Ask Your Surgeon?
An informed decision can go a long way toward a successful Brazilian butt lift. A significant part of this decision-making process is asking your surgeon the right questions.
Here are some questions you should consider asking your surgeon before proceeding with the treatment:
- How many Brazilian butt lift procedures have you performed before?
- How many years of experience do you have as a surgeon?
- What are your surgical techniques when performing a BBL?
- How long will the surgery take, and what should I expect during recovery?
- What must I do post-surgery to avoid complications and ensure the best results?
What are Other Butt Augmentation Procedures that Use Autologous Fat Grafting?
Buttock Augmentation with Fat Transfer + Silicone Prosthesis (“Hybrid” Technique)
In the case of very slim patients, it is often not possible to obtain enough autologous fat for buttock augmentation. In these cases, combined buttock augmentation can be performed. With the help of an intramuscular buttock prosthesis, the projection of the buttocks backward is improved, and the feminine curves are improved laterally by autologous fat transfer.
Fat Transfer to Correct an Incipient Loss of Volume in the Buttocks (Gluteal Ptosis)
Corrections of age changes in the buttocks area can be reliably treated with autologous fat transplantation. Autologous fat is a very suitable filler material because – in contrast to substances foreign to the body – it does not lead to any allergies. The corrections can be repeated as often as you like until the perfect buttocks shape is achieved.
In contrast to silicone prostheses, fat is an endogenous substance that cannot lead to scarring in the sense of capsule formation. The buttocks will feel warm and natural.
