Toned, lifted buttocks can enhance your natural body shape and boost your confidence. At The Center for Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Lexington, Kentucky, double board-certified plastic surgeon Sandra Bouzaglou, MD, FACS, offers the Brazilian butt lift to tighten and elevate your buttocks. Even better, the procedure uses excess fat from other areas of your body to augment its shape. Call The Center for Plastic Surgery and Med Spa today, or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
The Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, is a surgical procedure that involves fat transfer and augmentation. During the procedure, Dr. Bouzaglou removes fat from one area of the body — abdomen, hips, thighs — and injects it into the buttocks. The resulting look is voluminous and lifted, making the BBL the perfect procedure looking to contour their overall shape.
Dr. Bouzaglou performs the Brazilian using local anesthesia subcutaneously (under the skin) and oral sedation. Doing so greatly reduces the potential side effects of general anesthesia.
Though diet and exercise have a substantial effect on the shape and size of your buttocks, so do many other factors. Your natural musculoskeletal structure, metabolism, and body’s fat storage all impact the way your buttocks develop.
If your buttocks appear flat, saggy, or misshapen compared to the rest of your body, you may be a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift. The procedure also removes unwanted fat from other areas of the body for men or women who hope to slim their overall shape.
You may be a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift if you:
The Brazilian butt lift does require a recovery period in which you can’t sit on your buttocks, so it’s important to take that into consideration. This treatment doesn’t remove excess skin. If you struggle with severe skin laxity, a traditional lifting procedure may be more appropriate.
Before your procedure, Dr. Bouzaglou administers your local anesthetic and oral sedation. Next, she removes fat from your abdomen, back, hips, or thighs. She then injects it into the buttocks to augment its size and shape.
You must avoid sitting on your buttocks for at least two weeks after the procedure to protect your results. When sleeping, it’s important to lie on your stomach or side.
