What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

At Beautify at AMS in Chicago, Brazillian butt lifts are performed for significant improvement in the size, shape, and contour of the buttocks. Dr. Neema Bayran and our expert plastic surgeons will often perform a composite procedure: buttock implants complemented with natural fat grafting. The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) provides multiple enhancements to the buttock area, including volume, improved tone, cellulite reduction, and added lift. The procedure typically involves high-definition liposculpture; water-assisted fat grafting; internal and/or external radiofrequency energy devices, and Sculptra®.

How to Prepare for a Brazilian Butt Lift

In order to have the smoothest procedure possible, there are several things we recommend. You will need someone to be with you for 24 hours following the procedure, including driving you home. Be sure to have everything you’ll need for recovery already at home waiting for you. This will include items such as antibacterial soap, ice packs, and a donut pillow. We will provide you with a list of everything you’ll need for recovery. 

What Happens During the Procedure?

A Brazilian butt lift is done under general anesthesia. Before the procedure begins, your skin will be cleansed and marked to act as a blueprint. 

For the buttock implants, an incision will be created within the butt crease. From this incision, the silicone implants will be inserted either into or above the gluteal muscle on each side. 

For the fat grafting portion of the procedure, fat will be removed from one part of the body where it can be spared using liposuction, and the fat will then be purified through the Puregraft® filtration system and enriched with your own growth factors and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) before it is transferred to the gluteal tissues. This process allows for the greatest longevity and viability.

Internal and/or external radiofrequency energy devices and/or Sculptra may also be utilized. If it’s determined that these procedures should be included in your Brazilian butt lift, we will take you step-by-step through the procedure during your consultation.

The Liquid BBL

A liquid BBL is a Brazilian Butt Lift that uses only injectables. As mentioned above, these injectables can include your very own fat or Sculptra®—or a combination of both.

When it comes to using your own fat, because the “filler” comes from your body (usually the hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs), one of the biggest advantages is that there’s no risk of an allergic reaction or your body rejecting it. Another advantage is that the results look and feel very natural.

Sculptra® is also used in a liquid BBL for some patients. This dermal filler is excellent for adding volume to a flat or small butt, and it also stimulates brand-new collagen growth—which means firmer, smoother skin. Sculptra effectively fills out droopy, saggy tissues and achieves a shapely new lift and contour. Results can last up to two years.

What about silicone injections?

When will I see my results?

What about silicone injections?

A longtime expert in the art of body sculpting and contouring, Dr. Bayran advises all of his patients against permanent silicone injections. These permanent injections come with long-term consequences and potentially dangerous side effects.

When will I see my results?

Although you’ll be able to see early results instantly following the procedure, there will be swelling for about two weeks. It takes approximately six months for the results to be settled and final. If your weight remains the same and doesn’t fluctuate, the results from your BBL will last for years.
