Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

Many women who strive to achieve a firm and round backside may not be getting the results they desire despite trying countless specialized workout routines and adhering to a strict diet. Still, other women may be unsatisfied with the look of their naturally small or flat buttocks and wish to change their overall appearance.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), or buttock lift, is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that can enhance the size, shape, and proportion of your buttocks for a fuller, sexier backside. A BBL involves transferring fat from areas with excess fat, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, to the buttocks through liposuction and fat transfer. The result is an improved buttock contour with a fuller, more rounded appearance.

What Can the Brazilian Butt Lift Achieve?

A Fuller, Rounder Bottom

Some women have buttocks that lack shape or sag due to factors like aging, weight loss, or even genetics. With age, the elasticity in our skin declines, and the distribution of fat and muscle changes, which can also cause the shape of our butt to appear flat or droopy. Brazilian Buttock Lift surgery can improve the size and shape of your butt to create a fuller and rounder backside.

Natural-Looking Results

Plastic surgery is a great way to enhance your overall appearance and achieve the look you have always wanted. However, some patients fear undergoing surgery may result in fake or unnatural-looking results. Brazilian Butt Lift surgery can provide you with results that look and feel natural by enhancing the size and shape of your buttocks using your own fat.

More Clothing Options

Many patients feel self-conscious when wearing certain types of clothing because they have a flat backside. Not only does a flat or droopy behind cause clothing to fit incorrectly, but it is also challenging to find an outfit that gives them the fuller look they desire. With buttock lift surgery, you can feel more confident wearing a wider variety of clothing that might not have been as flattering without an enhanced body contour.

A Curvier Figure

Besides enhancing your lower body, a Brazilian Butt Lift also slims down “trouble” areas, making your natural curves more evident. The fat cells used in the procedure are typically taken from your abdomen, waist, and hips, so not only will your buttocks be more rounded and defined, but the areas where you got liposuction will appear smoother and slimmer.

Dr. Hadeed will explain the details of your procedure during your consultation. He will examine the condition of your buttocks and go over any questions or concerns you may have to best achieve your desired results.

How Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?


During your initial consultation, Dr. Hadeed will begin by talking with you and discussing your goals and desired results. He’ll go over the details of the cosmetic procedure, answer any questions, and address any concerns you may have. He will then examine your buttocks to verify that you are a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift and determine the optimal areas from which to harvest the necessary fat for transfer. Because the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves using a patient’s own fat to enhance the buttocks, you must have an adequate amount of fat to harvest from the hips, thighs, back, or abdomen to achieve your desired results.

During your consultation, Dr. Hadeed will determine the best approach for your surgery. He will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan so you will know what to expect and can look forward to achieving the best possible results.

Liposuction (Fat Harvesting)

The first step in the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is to use liposuction to remove unwanted excess fat from other areas of the body. Dr. Hadeed starts by making minor incisions along the areas selected for liposuction in preparation for fat harvesting. He then uses the liposuction instrument to remove the fat from the following areas of your body:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Thighs

Fat Transfer (Fat Injections/Fat Grafting)

Once the fat has been carefully extracted from your body, it is placed in a centrifuge to remove excess fluid and non-viable fat cells. After the fat has been carefully processed, Dr. Hadeed will use fat transfer (or fat grafting) to skillfully and strategically inject the purified fat under ultrasound guidance into your buttocks to enhance its shape and fullness.

What Can I Expect During My Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery?

Following your buttock lift surgery, a surgical garment will be wrapped around your buttocks and the area where you received liposuction to help minimize swelling and protect your new contours. You will typically wear your compression garments for up to three months after the procedure.

It is essential to rest and stay hydrated during your recovery. Putting weight on your buttocks during the first six weeks after surgery is prohibited, so you may have to adjust your sleeping style to sleep on your side or stomach during that time. Some patients also utilize a specialized pillow to place underneath their buttocks to alleviate the pressure.

Swelling and bruising will occur but should resolve after a few weeks. You may experience some minor pain or discomfort temporarily, but this can be alleviated with prescription or over-the-counter pain medication.

Most patients can return to work two weeks after the procedure as long as their work isn’t overly physical. However, because you need to avoid putting weight on your buttocks, sitting is restricted. Dr. Hadeed will recommend specialized pillows for those who need to sit for long periods of time at their job.

Walking is recommended to help speed healing and protect against the development of blood clots. However, you should avoid all strenuous activities and exercises for at least six weeks or until Dr. Hadeed clears you to resume those activities.

When Will I See My Brazilian Butt Lift Results?

Immediately after the procedure, your buttocks will likely look fuller than you imagined, and any swelling will only enhance this effect. Your body will reabsorb some of the fat over the next six to eight weeks, and your buttocks will decrease in size. Your final results will be visible about two months after surgery, and you will see a fuller, shapelier backside.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ

  • Am I a good candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?

    Women who wish to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift are non-smokers who are in good overall health. Additionally, the best candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lifts include those who:

    • Are close to their ideal stable weight.
    • Have tried unsuccessfully to augment the size and shape of your buttocks with diet and exercise.
    • Have a lack of shape and fullness in their buttocks due to weight fluctuations, age, or genetics.
    • Have sufficient excess fat in other parts of their body to transfer to the buttocks.
    • Have realistic expectations for their BBL results.
    • Have good skin tone and integrity.
    • Are looking for an alternative to buttock augmentation using silicone implants.
    • Want an increase in the size of their butt without the invasive surgery.
  • What if I don’t have enough excess fat to transfer?

    Sometimes, a patient may not have enough excess body fat to harvest. In that case, a Brazilian Butt Lift may not be the optimal procedure to achieve the patient’s desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Hadeed will evaluate your body to determine if you have enough fat to harvest. If you don’t, he can offer alternative procedures that may work better for your body to help you reach your aesthetic goals

  • What type of anesthesia will be used during my BBL procedure?

    Brazilian Butt Lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. You will need to arrange for someone to take you home after your procedure, as you will be unable to drive.

  • Is the Brazilian Butt Lift painful?

    You may experience moderate discomfort after your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. Dr. Hadeed can prescribe medication to help minimize pain during your recovery.

  • Is the Brazilian Butt Lift a one-size-fits-all surgery?

    Buttock enhancement surgery is completely customizable to address your specific concerns. Unlike silicone buttock implants, which are typically shaped the same and come in a limited range of sizes, buttock enhancement using fat transfer offers more options. Not only will you be able to choose the exact location of your enhancement, but you will also be able to choose the size of the enhancement, giving you the amount of fullness you want, where you want it.

  • Which is better: a Brazilian Butt Lift or butt augmentation with implants?

    The answer to this question depends on your current physique and desired results. Silicone butt implants require a more invasive surgery and a longer recovery process. The implants may also move out of place, causing asymmetry and needing additional surgery to fix the problem.

    A Brazilian Butt Lift uses a natural, minimally invasive process to augment your buttocks. The recovery process is shorter, and the result looks and feels more natural. A Brazilian Butt Lift also allows for more customization when it comes to the placement of the injections and the amount of volume you wish to have.

  • What can I do to maximize my Brazilian Butt Lift results?

    The best thing you can do after your BBL is to follow all of Dr. Hadeed’s postoperative instructions. Taking the proper steps and precautions during your recovery will help you retain as much transferred fat as possible. Wearing your compression garment as instructed, sleeping on your side or stomach instead of your back, and avoiding sitting or putting weight on your buttocks for the required amount of time all help you reap the rewards of your surgery. Allowing the fat cells to “settle in” to your buttocks and anchor themselves in the correct place goes a long way towards enhancing your results.

  • Are my Brazilian Butt Lift results permanent?

    When performed by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Hadeed, the results of your BBL surgery are considered permanent. However, age and gravity associated with the natural aging process can affect your results—and the rest of your body. A healthy diet and exercise routine can help maintain your BBL results.

    Another factor that can affect the longevity of your results is weight fluctuations. Significant weight gain or loss can negatively affect your results, taking your behind from perfectly proportioned and balanced with your figure to overly big or flatter and smaller. The best way to ensure your results last as long as possible is to maintain a healthy weight within 5–10 pounds of where you were when you had your BBL.

  • Will I need additional BBL procedures?

    In most cases, you will only need one fat transfer procedure to achieve the buttock enhancement you desire. After you undergo the procedure, your body will absorb anywhere from 30–40% of the volume in your buttocks that was added during the procedure. This loss is normal because not all injected fat cells will survive the fat transfer process. For this reason, Dr. Hadeed always injects more fat than necessary to account for this reduction.

    If you desire more volume in your buttocks after you’ve seen your full results, you can talk with Dr. Hadeed about the best way to reach your aesthetic goals.

  • How long do I have to wait before undergoing an additional Brazilian Butt Lift?

    If you and Dr. Hadeed decide that it is in your best interest to undergo a second BBL, it is recommended that you wait at least six months before your next procedure. This delay allows the fat cells to establish themselves and for you to truly see the full results of your initial BBL.

  • What are the risks associated with a Brazilian Butt Lift?

    A Brazilian Butt Lift is safe when performed by an experienced and credentialed plastic surgeon. Choosing a certified Brazilian Butt Lift surgeon helps ensure that your BBL surgery proceeds safely and smoothly.

    As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with a Brazilian Butt Lift, which may include:

    • Cysts or lumps at the injection site
    • Infection at the donor site
    • Microcalcification of the fat
    • Seroma
    • Necrosis (death) of fat cells

    If you have any concerns during your recovery period, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Hadeed.

  • Does the Brazilian Butt Lift leave scars?

    The only scars the BBL will leave are from the liposuction used to harvest the fat. During the liposuction procedure, Dr. Hadeed will make small incisions in inconspicuous places so the resulting scars can be easily hidden with clothing. These small scars will fade over time. Using scar cream and silicone strips and avoiding sun exposure will also help to minimize the scars.

  • How much does a Brazilian Butt Lift cost in Beverly Hills, CA?

    The cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift in Beverly Hills, CA, will vary based on several factors, including anesthesia fees, surgical fees, prescription costs, and recovery items (compression garments, specialized pillows). Dr. Hadeed, an experienced cosmetic surgeon, aims to assist everyone in achieving their ideal selves through high-quality aesthetic treatments. He is proud to offer several financing options so that you can budget your cosmetic surgery more conveniently.
