What is Brazillian Butt Lift (BBL)?

Brazillian Butt Lift is a hip shaping application using one's own regional fat.Excess fat tissues from the abdomen, waist or leg areas of the patient are taken with the liposuction technique and injected into the butt area.

In general, people who have the following characteristics are probably good candidates for Brazilian butt lift:

If the patient wants a prosthesis-free (Implant-free) hip augmentation operation,

If there is no excessive sagging in the hips,

If there is enough fat in other body areas for butt fat ejection.

How is Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery performed?

1- The first step in Brazilian Butt Lift surgery is liposuction to extract fat from the hips, waist, thighs, abdomen and/or other regions. For this purpose, it’s usually prefered fat removal with liposuction.Liposuction is a method that works with the principle of minimal damage to the fat tissue and it allows to collect the fat from the body without damaging it and transfers the fat to the needed areas. Therefore, the survival rate of the fat taken and given to the hip is very high.

2- The extracted fat is purified and prepared for transfer.

3- The Plastic Surgeon injects the extracted fat into the certain areas in the hips to increase the volüme of the butt and provide the desired shape to the butt.

Not all of the injected fat will remain in the injected area, but some will melt. For this reason, many surgeons inject a little more fat than it should be, taking into account this melting rate.

Is Brazillian Butt Lift Surgery performed under Local or General Anesthesia?

What are the differences between Brazillian Butt Lift Surgery and Butt Implants?

A major advantage of Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery is that it enlarges the size of the hip without an implant. Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery is a very natural-looking operation with obvious results.

However, if the patient is very thin, body fat is not enough and the only way to achieve the increase in size the patient desires may be Butt Implants. Butt Implants may be a good option for some patients; however, it is important to understand the additional risks of having implants (hip replacements), including capsular contracture and a higher risk of infection. Hip implants can look less natural compared to Brazillian Butt Lift Surgery (BBL).
