What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift, also known as a BBL, is a popular fat transfer to buttocks procedure that improves a patient’s buttocks’ shape and size, making it appear fuller and more flattering. Compared to other butt augmentation techniques, like butt implants, the Brazilian butt lift method tends to produce more natural-looking results. Other BBL benefits include:

How do I find the right Brazilian butt lift surgeon?

A Brazilian butt lift uses liposuction to extract unwanted fat from a donor area on the body, such as the hips, thighs, lower back, or abdomen, and harvested, healthy fat cells can be injected into the buttocks. This butt augmentation method has skyrocketed to popularity in the last few years, helping both women and men achieve a fuller, rounder, more voluptuous backside. When looking for a plastic surgeon in Tucson to perform this fat transfer to buttocks procedure, there are a few things to consider:

Tip #1

Part of the Brazilian butt lift procedure includes liposuction. The plastic surgeon should be able to create high-quality liposuction results, avoiding too much fat being removed, which can cause dimples, divots, or “dumps” left behind in the donor area.

Tip #2

Qualified, experienced plastic surgeons, like Dr. Rao, can create excellent outcomes for a wide range of augmentation sizes from small to large. BBL procedures are customized for each patient, requiring the plastic surgeon to be well-versed in various augmentation techniques and methods to provide each patient their desired size.

Tip #3

In addition to creating small to moderate buttock augmentation results, many Tucson, AZ men and women may also want to correct aesthetic issues, such as lack of fullness or asymmetry corrected with a fat transfer to buttocks procedure. The plastic surgeon should be able to address any additional concerns or effectively correct these issues to create a rounder, fuller, more natural-looking results.

Tip #4

If a patient wants to achieve the coveted “hourglass” body type, the plastic surgeon should transform both the waistline and buttocks areas. An experienced Brazilian butt lift surgeon can create a slimmer, smoother midsection hourglass figure due to the transformation with a BBL procedure.

Tip #5

The results from a BBL should be full, natural-looking, smooth, and proportional. A well-versed plastic surgeon should have an artistic eye and skill with the fat grafting injections to be accurate and precise to create the projection and width the patient wants for optimal results.

Tip #6

To perform a successful Brazilian butt lift procedure, Tucson plastic surgeons should use the latest technologies and methods and be well-versed at performing this fat transfer to buttocks. Request to see several before and after photos, and even read through patient reviews, to get an idea if your Brazilian butt lift surgeon is the right fit for you.

Tip #7

A fat transfer to buttock procedure, when performed correctly, can yield beautiful results for patients. Surgical skills and experience are essential to attain natural-looking results and avoid unnecessary complications. You should make sure you find a board-certified plastic surgeon who is well-versed in fat grafting techniques, liposuction, and BBL procedures to get the right, long-lasting results.
