About Brazilian Butt Lift
A surgery known as the Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is known as one of the most rapidly growing surgical procedures in the U.S. and is currently in popular demand by both men and women. This butt enhancement surgery allows individuals a natural way to attain a rounder and shapelier buttocks without using an implant. Weight fluctuations, aging, gravity, as well as genetics can cause a flat rear end. In today's times, a curvy, rounder rear end is wanted more than a flat behind. Using your own fat, the Brazilian butt lift adds volume to the buttocks area to create the appropriate roundness and shape. This is accomplished through a uniquely specialized fat grafting and transfer process, which first uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat pockets from a targeted area of your body and then transfers it into your butt. It takes an artistic approach to perfecting this body contouring surgery, and with many years of advanced training and experience, our Las Vegas, NV team is able to garner natural, gorgeous results at Plastic Surgery Vegas.
The right candidates for the Brazilian butt lift will be examined to ensure they are right for this surgery. The first consideration is to confirm there is plenty of fat on the body to remove for the transfer process. If you have a lighter body weight or have limited fat to extract and purify, you, unfortunately, may not be a candidate for this treatment. Moreover, it is also necessary to have good skin laxity. If your skin is loose, sagging, or wrinkled, you may require a traditional butt lift with your enhancement surgery. If you are at a good weight, have enough fat to extract and transfer, and do not want to use an artificial device, such as an implant, then a Brazilian butt lift may be a great option for you.

"My experience at "Plastic Surgery Vegas" practice has been amazing.Everyone I came in contact with was very welcoming and professional. I can not speak highly enough of Dr. Higgins and his close staff (Laura & Kristin). This was to be my 4th breast augmentation in 25years (my 1st with Dr. Higgins), which included reconstruction/lift due to wanting to go smaller with this surgery. After my initial consultation with Dr. Higgins, I felt very comfortable and confident to proceed, but as a nurse, I had a few more questions. His reception had no problem scheduling an additional appointment to address any additional concerns. In my career as a nurse, I have met and worked with many physicians over the years. I have come across very few surgeons as authentic, caring, skilled and talented as Dr. Higgins. I felt that Dr. Higgins really listened to me, and addressed my questions and concerns. As most people are,,,, I was nervous about the surgery but felt very taken care of by Dr. Higgins and his staff all the way into to O.R. and just prior to being put to sleep. In all of my previous surgeries, I had never been met with such attention and compassion up to and beyond my surgery. Additionally, my results are PHENOMENAL, and have far exceeded my expectations. I would trust & recommend Dr. Higgins, as well as "Plastic Surgery Vegas" not only to complete strangers, but to anyone I love and care about. Las Vegas is a city that attracts lots of Plastic surgeons, which can make choosing a quality Plastic surgeon VERY difficult. I took my time, I did my research, and am extremely happy I did. If you expect quality care and results, Dr. Higgins, and Plastic Surgery Vegas will far exceed your expectations."- M.N. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

General anesthesia is used for a Brazilian butt lift surgery. It is considered an outpatient treatment and on average, it takes about 2 – 3 hours (depending on the amount of fat that is being removed and transferred). Liposuction will be performed first to remove fat from specific areas on the body, such as the stomach, hips, and thighs. This treatment of fat extraction is performed at the highest quality and safety. The extracted fat is never subjected to air since it is intricately purified in a sterile centrifuge system. It is during this time healthy fat tissue is harvested and put into syringes. The final step is the injection phase where the harvested fat tissue is injected in layers followed by a gentle massage to ensure the surface is smooth. This step is repeated multiple times until the desired fullness has been achieved.
Following a Brazilian butt lift, you will be released home to recover. Remember, there are two areas that need to be monitored — where the fat was extracted and your enhanced buttocks. Both areas will have some swelling and bruising. Patients should try their best to not place additional weight on the buttocks for at least two weeks following surgery. Once the swelling has gone away, results are visible, but in most cases, the full outcome is seen in about 4 – 6 weeks. Your rear end will appear round and shapely. In addition, the body parts that had lipo may make your result more beautiful if it was performed on the lower back or flanks.
Brazilian butt lift FAQS
Should I get implants or a fat transfer?
If you want to increase the volume of your buttocks, you get butt augmentation using either silicone implants or a fat transfer (the Brazilian butt lift). During your initial consultation, we will discuss both methods and help you decide which best matches your physique and wants. We will also examine your body to find the best areas that would benefit from liposuction (usually the stomach, back, or thighs). You may not be a candidate for a BBL if your body fat percentage is too low.
How long will my results last?
Although a small amount of fat may be reabsorbed after the transfer, the majority of the fat cells will remain in their new location for a long time. To keep your results, you should maintain a steady weight since major weight loss or gain can compromise the results of the surgery. This is why we highly recommend you be at a healthy weight before your BBL so it's easier for you to maintain your shape.
Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?
While it's called a Brazilian butt lift, this name is a little deceiving since it's not actually a butt lift (gluteoplasty), which removes loose skin in the butt. Although, the extra volume transferred to your butt during a BBL can fill some loose skin. For moderate or severe loose skin in your buttocks, you may need a traditional butt lift with your Brazilian butt lift. We will go over your options based on your goals and physical exam in your consultation.
