What Is Brazilian Butt Lift?

“Biggest Lift Of All Is Lifting The Butt From Your Couch.”

Brazilian butt lift is a well known cosmetic surgery, in which fat is transferred to buttocks, to enhance its shape and make it more round and attractive.

Definition Of Brazilian Butt Lift 

Brazilian butt lift is a well known cosmetic surgery, in which fat is transferred to buttocks, to enhance its shape and make it more round and attractive. BBL doesn’t require any implants, just the fat is extracted from the stomach, thighs or lower back and is added to the thin butts to give curvaceous and striking butts. Brazilian Butt Lift is specially made for women whose baby is recently born and ladies whose lethargic butts are adding up extra pounds. 

Butt augmentation is the most reliable to get firmer and rounder butts, which can be done by either fat grafting or silicone implant but fat grafting is much safer and less painful so people put a finger on this one when it comes to choosing.


Fat grafting steps :

  1. The treatment begins with anesthesia if a bigger portion of fat is transferred the use of general anesthesia or sedation is done and for a tiny portion, local anesthesia is more than enough. It is possible that during Brazilian butt lift procedure you feel nauseous and vomiting can also happen, to avoid this, ask a doctor to get you a pill of granisetron or dolasetron (best anti-nausea medicines).
  2. By following the liposuction method, the doctor starts taking out the unnecessary fat from thighs, stomach, and lower back, small incisions are made and tubes such as cannula and drainage are used to take out the fat.
  3. Before placing fat into the buttocks it gets refined later it gets injected into butts through syringe and tube.
  4. Sometimes if a doctor doesn’t get the right amount of fat from other areas he/she might use artificial fat to add the extra volume of artificial or processed fat to meet the patient’s expectations.
  5. To get desirable round or heart-shaped buttocks approximately 4-5 incisions are made in butts. 
  6. Once fat grafting is done, the doctor puts stitches in the end and ends the procedure by garment or pads to minimize the bleeding in the surgical area.
