Numerous women desire a more curvaceous figure and a shapelier butt, but attaining that kind of body naturally can be incredibly difficult.

However, achieving a rounder, fuller buttocks is possible. At Forman Plastic Surgery, we offer a procedure the Brazilian butt lift to help our patients achieve those gorgeous curves.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves transferring excess fat from another area of the body to the buttocks to create a more lifted and contoured appearance. During the procedure, Dr. Forman first performs liposuction to remove excess fat from areas like the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. The removed fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks to create a fuller, rounder shape.

Am I a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Adults who are unsatisfied with the size and shape of their buttocks could be good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift. It’s important to keep in mind that candidates for this procedure must have an adequate amount of excess fat somewhere on their body that can be transferred to their buttocks. 

Patients who meet this criteria and are in good health and don’t smoke are likely good candidates for a BBL.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

Before the surgery, you will meet with Dr. Forman to discuss your goals and expectations. He will evaluate your overall health and assess the amount of fat available for transfer. You may be asked to stop smoking and avoid certain medications or supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding. If you choose to move forward with the BBL procedure, Dr. Forman will design a custom surgical plan for you.

Your BBL surgery will be an outpatient procedure performed at our accredited surgery center. To begin, you’ll be administered local anesthesia with IV sedation. Dr. Forman will then make very small incisions in the targeted areas to remove excess fat using gentle liposuction. The fat will then be purified before it’s injected into your buttocks to achieve your desired shape and size. After the procedure, you may need to remain at the facility for a couple of hours for monitoring. You can then return home with a family member or friend to drive you.

What Is the Recovery Like?

After the procedure, you will likely experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Dr. Forman may prescribe pain medication to help manage any pain or discomfort. It’s important to avoid sitting or lying on your back or buttocks for at least two weeks after the surgery to allow the fat cells to properly settle and integrate with your existing tissue. Additionally, you’ll need to wear a compression garment for several weeks after the procedure.

Most patients require about one or two weeks of downtime before returning to work and their typical routines. During that time, you will not be able to sit on your bottom, as this could disrupt the healing process of the newly transferred fat cells. When you feel able to, take regular light walks to improve your circulation. Stay hydrated, and maintain a healthy diet.
