  • Many women inquire about buttock volumizing during mommy makeover consultations.
  • Fat cells have receptors and certain areas naturally accumulate or lose fat.
  • Areas like the buttocks can lose volume and shape over time.
  • To restore buttock shape and volume, fat transfer from other areas or implants is an option.
  • Fat transfer, commonly known as a Brazilian butt lift, involves minimal downtime as it combines liposuction to remove unwanted fat and transfer it to the buttocks.

What is Brazilian Butt Lift?

Buttock augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of your butt. This may involve a fat transfer procedure, also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, or implants. A Brazilian Butt Lift or a procedure with implants can effectively enhance your backside. Each procedure has its own benefits that our surgeons will review with you.

Your experience at Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery will begin with a one-on-one consultation with one of our experienced surgeons. They will examine your areas of concern and have a thorough conversation to ensure they understand your goals for surgery. We can also discuss financing options to make your unique treatment plan as affordable as possible.

During your consultation, your surgeon will also make sure that you are aware that the Brazilian Butt Lift has a slightly higher risk than other elective cosmetic procedures. Thus, it is critical to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon for your procedure, such as our team of highly trained experts at Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery. 

Most individuals who are pre-screened for contraindications and follow all instructions can expect a safe recovery without adverse risks. At Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery, we closely monitor and follow up with each BBL surgery patient to ensure everything is healing without complication.

Learn More About Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

Our surgeons have decades of combined experience and can help you choose the best technique for you during your consultation. Our surgeons may perform your buttock augmentation procedure using one of the following techniques:

Brazilian Butt Lift (Fat Grafting)

During your Brazilian Butt Lift, your surgeon will use liposuction techniques to harvest excess fat from a donor site, like your abdomen or thighs. Next, they will process your fat cells in a centrifuge to remove impurities, then place your purified fat cells into your buttocks through tiny incisions. Your surgeon will insert small amounts of fat cells into several areas of your buttocks to ensure even distribution and natural-looking results.

Brazilian Butt Lifts are such a popular procedure due to their multifaceted benefits, which often lead to an all-over figure transformation. During the procedure, patients commonly have fat harvested from their waist or love handles. This creates a slimmer, smoother contour from the waist to the hip, which amplifies the buttocks for a more dramatic hourglass shape.

While butt implants can provide an even more dramatic volume increase, many patients prefer the contouring effect of a Brazilian Butt Lift that results in an overall improvement to their silhouette and body balance.

Butt Implants

With this method, your surgeon will use implants sized for your body instead of fat transfer to improve the appearance of your butt. During your procedure, they will likely make incisions in the natural creases of your buttocks. Through these incisions, they will place implants in your butt to add volume and definition.

Our Newport Beach surgeons can help you choose the best butt implants for your goals. They can customize your implants in shape and size to help you achieve your desired result. You can also combine a butt augmentation procedure with a more extensive procedure like the Mommy Makeover to restore your pre-baby body.

Your recovery after buttock augmentation will depend on the techniques used. After BBL, it is crucial not to put any pressure on your buttocks, and you should not lie on your back for several weeks. Putting pressure on your buttocks too soon may damage the transferred fat cells and affect your final results. If you have butt implants, you should also avoid sitting for several weeks to keep tension off your incisions.

You may resume your normal activities after about one month and resume more strenuous exercise after approximately two months once you are cleared to do so. 

Our expert surgeons in Newport Beach will provide you with detailed recovery instructions that you should follow closely to ensure the best results. We will also routinely follow up with you to monitor your progress and ensure you look and feel great after your butt augmentation.

Once swelling and bruising subside, you will begin to see the results of your procedure. After a BBL fat transfer, it is normal for some fat cells to be broken down and eliminated by the body. However, the remaining fat cells are there to stay, making your results long-lasting. 

A Brazilian Butt Lift with fat grafting is considered a “semi-permanent” procedure since the results should last as long as your fat cells stay the same size. They will still grow and shrink like normal, depending on your diet and exercise habits. 

If you receive butt implants, you will immediately notice an increase in volume and can enjoy your true results after the swelling fades completely. Butt implants are long-lasting, but you may need to replace them after approximately 15 years.  

If you are unhappy with your buttocks or silhouette, a Brazilian Butt Lift may be right for you. Buttock augmentation can help enhance your backside and address the following concerns:

  • A naturally small or flat butt
  • Volume loss in the buttocks caused by age, weight loss, or pregnancy
  • Misshapen buttocks
  • A butt that is disproportionate to the rest of the body

The best candidates for buttock augmentation surgery have good health and maintain a stable weight. Additionally, ideal buttock augmentation patients should have realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcome. Your surgeon will meet with you to discuss your concerns and determine if a Brazilian Butt Lift or butt implants are suitable for your goals.

The cost of a BBL will depend on several factors, including how many areas are treated with liposuction. Other factors include your provider’s experience and geographic location, as well as your unique procedure and its complexity. On average, a Brazilian Butt Lift costs $6,650 in the United States. This is a rough estimate, and other variations to consider include facility fees and the cost of anesthesia.

The cost of buttock augmentation with implants will also vary and may be more expensive due to the price of the implants. Your total cost will depend greatly on your unique procedure, so we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our Newport Beach plastic surgeons for an accurate estimate.
