OVERVIEW

What Is Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)?

Do you dream of having an hourglass figure with a small waist and a voluptuous buttock? If yes, Brazilian Buttock Lift may be the right procedure for you.

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes body sculpting liposuction and fat injection to contour and define a sexy bottom. The benefits of the procedure are dual. First, body sculpting liposuction improves body contour by removing fat from undesirable and stubborn areas of the body such as the abdomen, waist, and thighs. Second, your own excess fat is used to increase your buttocks’ roundness and fullness through fat injection without the use of implants or any foreign material.

CONSULTATION

What to Expect During Your BBL Consultation?

Dr. Bachilo will meet with you and ask you about your desired body form. She will listen to you to fully understand what you are trying to accomplish with this procedure. It may be helpful if you can bring a photo of the buttock you find attractive. Dr. Bachilo will evaluate your medical history and examine your body to determine if you are healthy for elective surgery and are a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift. It is best if you are at your ideal body weight that you are happy with and can maintain long-term. It would be best if you also had sufficient fat to move from other parts of the body to your buttock. Dr. Bachilo will describe the procedure to you and explain the risks associated with your procedure.

When you are ready to schedule your surgery, you will be given instructions on how to prepare. Dr. Bachilo will advise you to stop smoking at least one month before your operation. Dr. Bachilo and our entire team at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa Houston office are committed to your safety and your procedure’s success. We ask that you help us deliver the beautiful outcome you deserve by cooperating with us and complying with your pre-operative instructions.

PROCEDURE

How Is Buttlift Procedure Performed?

Brazilian butt lift is performed in an outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia. The procedure requires 3 to 4 hours, depending on the volume of fat being transferred. First, body sculpting liposuction is performed to contour the body and to harvest the fat for injection. Tiny incisions are strategically placed around the body areas you wish to liposuction.

Dr. Bachilo will discuss with you and plan out which areas of your body will have liposuction performed to obtain enough fat. The best donor sites for fat are the flanks, abdomen, hips, and thighs. You can also request to have other specific areas addressed at the same time, such as arms, legs, or chin. Your buttock shape will further be accentuated through the use of body sculpting liposuction.

Fat removed through liposuction is then prepared for injection into the buttock. Fat is carefully injected to contour the buttocks until the desired effect is achieved. Compression garments are needed for body areas receiving liposuction and applied at the end of the procedure. Pressure should be avoided to the buttock to preserve the new shape and avoid damage to fat cells.

RECOVERY

What to Expect During BBL Recovery?

Swelling and bruising are expected after surgery and resolve over several weeks. Any discomfort after your procedure is well controlled with oral pain medications prescribed by your surgeon. You will be provided instructions on how to care for yourself after your operation. You will be asked to wear compression garments for areas that had liposuction performed.

Please avoid sitting or laying on your buttocks for an extended period of time to prevent damage to the newly transplanted fat cells and avoid alterations in your buttock shape. You should be able to resume putting pressure on your buttock in about two weeks after the surgery, at which time most of the discomfort will also subside. You should be able to return to work within a week or two with minimal limitations. Six weeks after the procedure, you may resume all of your normal activities.

RESULTS

What Results Can I Expect After Brazilian Butt Lift?

After the procedure, you will immediately notice a change in your body shape; however, the final result will become apparent when all of the swellings resolve. The injected fat stabilizes around 3 months after the procedure. Your body will reabsorb some of the fat that is injected, and it’s expected for the final shape to be somewhat smaller than what is seen immediately after surgery. Your results should be long-lasting as long as you maintain your weight. Your new buttock is made of your own fat cells and will respond with you as you lose and gain weight.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it called a Brazilian Butt Lift?

While the Brazilian Butt Lift actually has nothing to do with Brazil and was invented in the United States, the procedure got its name from a TV program called “Building the Brazilian Butt,” in which a Brazilian patient underwent a fat transfer procedure and had her derriere re-sculpted.

Who is an ideal candidate for Brazilian buttock lift?

Ideal candidates for Brazilian buttock lift surgery are healthy women with a stable weight who desire to improve their body's contour and curvature and have sufficient fat for transfer to create a fuller buttock.

When should I consider a Brazilian Butt Lift?

If your butt is flat and undefined, if your bathing suits sag at the rear, if your clothing is missing a little junk in the trunk, in general, if you feel displeased because your butt is shapeless or undeveloped, a Brazilian Butt Lift may be the perfect solution.

How can a Brazilian Butt Lift enhance my appearance?

The Brazilian Butt Lift is actually a dual procedure that provides two benefits at once. While enhancing your butt, the procedure also reduces fat from other areas and moves that fat to the derrière.  So you get the double benefit of sculpting one area while padding another.

How much does a Brazilian Butt Lift cost in Houston?

The cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift will vary dramatically between patients, depending on the amount of fat to be transferred, the number of harvest sites, and the number of fat injections required. It can run anywhere from $3,000 to $15,000. You can save money on a Brazilian Butt Lift if you combine the procedure with another procedure in one surgical session.

Will a Brazilian Butt Lift help me to lose weight?

No. A Brazilian Butt Lift is not a weight-loss procedure. It is best performed on patients who have reached their ideal weight, generally maintain a stable weight, exercise regularly, and eat healthily.

Who performs the best Brazilian Butt Lift in Houston?

Among the best plastic surgeons in Houston, patients who undergo surgery with Dr. Olga Bachilo come out extremely pleased, and they highly recommend Dr. Bachilo. Dr. Bachilo is the director of Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, a state-of-the-art cosmetic facility that serves the Houston area and neighboring communities such as Pearland, Sugar Land, Katy, Woodland, and others.

Will a Brazilian Butt Lift produce results that look and feel natural?

Yes. Because a Brazilian Butt Lift is performed with fat from your own body, the results look and feel totally natural.  Dr. Bachilo is an expert in sculpting a derriere that looks natural and proportionate to your overall body and frame.

What type of anesthesia is used during a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?

The Brazilian Butt Lift is typically performed using general anesthesia.

Will there be visible scars after a Brazilian Butt Lift?

No.  The incisions used in a fat transfer procedure are minuscule and camouflaged in the body's natural creases and folds.  Also, the incisions used in plastic surgery are very fine hairline incisions that create extremely thin scars. These scars fade away over time if properly cared for after surgery and eventually become nearly invisible to the naked eye.

Can I combine a Brazilian Butt Lift with other procedures?

Yes. In fact, the Brazilian Butt Lift already addresses at least one other area of the body to harvest fat, so whether it’s toning your waistline, enhancing your breasts, or tightening your thighs, you can take advantage and have multiple procedures performed at one time. This will save money and time in the long run and reduce your exposure to anesthesia and your recovery time by having all procedures done at once.

How long do the results of a Brazilian Butt Lift last?

The results of the Brazilian Butt Lift tend to last for years, but in some cases, the body may absorb some of the fat transfer, and the procedure may have to be repeated.

Overview

What Is Buttock Implant Surgery?

There’s no need to endure a flat, sagging derriere when you can get a gluteal augmentation procedure with or without gluteal implants at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Houston.

How Can Gluteal Implants Improve My Appearance?

Gluteal augmentation with gluteal implants or natural fat transfer can enhance your physical appearance by altering the buttocks’ size, shape, and firmness.  The gluteal augmentation procedure has become widely popular among men and women because it provides the extra volume and padding that so many of us lack in the buttocks. A nicely defined and contoured derriere means a better fit in your clothing as well as a more proportional body.

Led by one of Houston’s most trusted plastic surgeons, Dr. Olga Bachilo, Glamour Plastic Surgery, and Med Spa provides comprehensive cosmetic procedures and treatments, such as gluteal augmentation, for residents of the greater Houston area.

Candidates

Who Should Consider Gluteal Augmentation with Implants

Gluteal augmentation is ideal for healthy adult candidates who are non-smokers and who want to enhance volume and definition in the buttocks.

Male Gluteal Augmentation

Butt Implants for Men

More and more men seek cosmetic procedures, and gluteal augmentation is on the rise among male patients. Male gluteal augmentation can make a man’s physique more proportional and improve the fit of trousers and slacks. Improved contour and definition of the gluteal muscles may also be achieved through this procedure, giving the body a rejuvenated appearance.

Procedure

How Is Butt Implant Surgery Performed?

Gluteal augmentation may be performed either by using gluteal implants made of silicone gel or by transferring the patient’s own fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs.

Gluteal implants are inserted through small incisions camouflaged in the natural crease between the buttocks and placed over or under the gluteal muscles.

In the case of gluteal augmentation with fat transfer, the procedure requires excess fat extraction through liposuction. The fat is then liquefied and injected directly into the target area, producing a more natural look and feel.

Gluteal Implant Revision

Gluteal Implant Revision

If for any reason you become unhappy with your gluteal implants, or in cases where the implants may develop some complication such as rippling, or if they shift out of position or cause any discomfort, you may select to undergo a Gluteal Implant Revision procedure to remove or replace your existing implants.

Gluteal implant revision surgery is available for anyone who wishes to remove or replace gluteal implants. You may also elect to replace your gluteal implants with a gluteal fat transfer or fat grafting procedure.

Recovery

Recovery After Gluteal Enhancement with Implants

Because the buttocks are an area of the body that receives a lot of pressure, there will be a gradual recovery period after a gluteal augmentation procedure. Initially, it will be hard to sit, so if you have an office or desk job, you may need to take some time off to heal or consider working in a standing position. Sleeping and resting may become difficult due to the inability to find a comfortable position because it may feel uncomfortable to lie on your back. Fortunately, this portion of the recovery period lasts only about a week or two. After that, it’s just a matter of gradual healing until all of the swellings have subsided, usually after about three to four months.

What's Next?
