For many women, this procedure can help them achieve two goals. The first, eliminate unwanted fat that hasn’t responded to diet or exercise, and second, create a more rounded backside. Dr. Espinoza performs Brazilian butt lifts for patients across New York City in his Manhattan office.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Brazilian butt lifts have increased in popularity over the last several years. Also known as a BBL, this procedure can help shape and enhance the size of the buttocks using fat grafted from another area of the body. This creates a more sculpted and toned lower body and highlights your curves. The procedure is performed in three steps. 

  • First, the fat is extracted using liposuction. This could be from the abdomen, hips, lower back, or thighs. Your surgeon can create further definition in the area using liposuction while removing unwanted fat.
  • Next, the harvested fat is purified, ensuring it can be safely placed. 
  • Finally, the fat is injected into areas across the backside to enhance the shape and add volume.

Who Is a Candidate

Patients who meet the following criteria are ideal candidates for the procedure:

  • Are at a healthy weight 
  • Have a good amount of excess fat for the grafting
  • Lead a healthy lifestyle that includes routine exercise
  • Have lost shape or definition in the buttocks
  • Are looking to add volume to buttocks

Brazilian Butt Lift Benefits

Brazilian butt lifts are among the most popular cosmetic surgeries for numerous reasons. The benefits of this treatment include:

  • A BBL can create a natural-looking enhancement without implants or fillers.
  • You can use one procedure to both eliminate fat and create a fuller backside. This can help improve your abdomen, hips, or thighs.
  • The procedure requires a less invasive procedure than butt implants or other butt lift procedures and offers a shorter recovery period.
  • Many patients find life more comfortable without the excess fat.

Recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift

The procedure is performed using general anesthesia and is typically outpatient. This allows you to return home a few hours after the surgery has been completed. Once at home, patients should expect to recover for two weeks.

You will be asked not to sit or lie down directly on the buttocks during the recovery process. You will need to sleep on your side or stomach, and activities should be performed standing or lying on your stomach. Most patients can return to work and regular activities after two weeks but should wait longer before continuing more strenuous activities.

When will my results be visible?

The final results will be visible after the recovery process is complete and swelling has been fully resolved. This can take between three and six months. As you move through the recovery process, you will begin to see some of the results and notice changes over the first few weeks.

How long do the results last?

If you maintain a healthy weight, you can expect the results to be long-lasting. Liposuction ensures no fat can be stored there in the future; however weight fluctuations can impact your overall results.
