Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
What is the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic procedure that we use to improve your appearance – reshaping and augmenting your buttocks with fat withdrawn from other parts of your body. This cosmetic procedure is exploding in popularity among those seeking to enhance their appearance in this prominent area of the body.
The BBL involves the use of a liposuction to remove a certain amount of fat from places like your hips or thighs. So this procedure not only helps to plump the buttocks, it helps to slim your profile in other areas as well. We purify the fat that we have withdrawn from your body and carefully inject it into the buttocks to create additional volume and augment your contours into the desired shape.
How long the procedure takes will depend upon the amount of fat that must be withdrawn, as well as your unique aesthetic goals. These matters can be discussed at your initial consultation with Dr. Antún. And you will be provided all necessary details regarding your surgical preparations, the procedure itself and what is involved with your recovery at that meeting.
Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Surgical Butt Augmentation
Some patients confuse these two procedures, but they are somewhat different. The surgical butt augmentation does not use the body’s own fat. Instead, it involves the use of medical silicone implants that will be augmenting your buttocks. These safe, FDA-approved implants function similarly to a breast augmentation. A surgical butt augmentation is appropriate for anyone with insufficient body fat necessary for a Brazilian Butt Lift, but who still desires an enhanced derrière. It is important to understand that the surgical butt augmentation is a more invasive procedure than the BBL.
In contrast to a surgical butt augmentation, the Brazilian Butt Lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that leads to minimal scarring, due to Dr. Antún’s skillful liposuction and fat grafting methods. Since we are only using fat taken from the body itself, you can expect results that are very natural and long-lasting.
Since a fat transfer involves a chance that some fat cells will be re-absorbed by your body shortly after your procedure, the results of this procedure are not as predictable as a surgical buttock augmentation. For this reason, you will be following up with Dr. Antún periodically, following your BBL, to check on your progress and ensure that you are completely satisfied with the results of your procedure.
Your Recovery: What To Expect
Following your procedure, we will fit you with a garment to minimize swelling. Although you should expect minimal pain that is controlled with medication, you should avoid sitting or lying on your buttocks for a couple of weeks after your BBL. While you are healing, you may be more comfortable sleeping on your stomach or side. After a couple of months of healing, we may recommend that you resume normal sitting to make sure that everything has completely settled.
As you go through your recovery period, we will be meeting with you periodically to assess your progress and see how the area is healing. You will be informed of all post-procedure instructions regarding sitting and resting positions, how to bathe properly, and gentle exercises so that you have the best result possible.
Best Candidates For Brazilian Butt Lift
The BBL procedure is not to be regarded as a method of weight loss. Prior to your procedure, you need to be in sound physical condition with a healthy and stable weight. Many patients desire dramatic results, or would just like to rejuvenate the area. The procedure is available for anyone who desires a lifting, reshaping or addition of volume to the buttocks area.
The procedure can be individualized to your unique needs and body type. We always take into account your aesthetic vision and goals.
The Brazilian Butt Lift helps those who would like to:

* Improve cellulite appearance
* Enhance overall proportions
