What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), also known as gluteal or Buttock Augmentation is designed to create an attractive hourglass figure and enhance feminine curves. The procedure focuses on improving the size, enhancing contour, restoring balance, and improving the firmness of your buttocks. The result is a more youthful-looking backside and a slimmer waistline.

In many cases, the fat is removed from a “problem area,” such as the hips, thighs, or lower abdomen, so that the results can improve not only the appearance of your butt but can also offer the removal of any unwanted fat cells in other parts of the body. Unlike the Traditional Body Lift, which focuses on lifting drooping buttocks, the Brazilian Butt Lift is more about increasing volume.

What Should I expect During a Consultation for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

If you’re in Washington DC or Baltimore and are interested in getting a Brazilian Butt Lift, the first step begins with scheduling a consultation with Dr. Landford. During your appointment, your glutes and overall body will be evaluated by Dr. Landford, who will determine the best area(s) to remove fat from to produce your desired results. You will also be asked to discuss your medical history to prevent any possible risks, so you must be clear and direct when talking about this with Dr. Landford. She will also address any of your concerns, answer your questions, and explain your options for your Brazilian Butt Lift in detail.

Once you and Dr. Landford agree on the details of your surgery, she will create your personalized surgical plan. Finally, our Patient Coordinator will schedule your procedure date and provide instructions on how to prepare for your BBL.

  • Complete a Medical evaluation with your primary care provider

What are the Steps of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

On the day of your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, you will first be administered general anesthesia for a more comfortable cosmetic procedure. Dr. Landford will begin by using Liposuction to remove excess fat from your abdomen, flanks, back, outer thighs, or upper arms for your gluteal fat grafting. Next, the purified fat is placed in a centrifuge to turn it into a higher fat concentration so it can be placed back into your body safely and efficiently. Dr. Landford then makes several small incisions on your buttocks and then inserts a thin tool called a cannula through the incision, gently rocking it back and forth to loosen up any bands of tissue. Then, through a process that is like Liposuction in reverse, this purified fat is injected into strategic locations on your buttocks. Dr. Landford relies on her skills and artistic eye to transfer the extracted fat into specific locations on the buttocks, creating sexier and more-rounded buttocks with a smoother and more uniform look. Once the desired shape and size have been achieved, the incisions are closed and will be wrapped in a dressing, followed by a compression garment to minimize swelling, which you should wear for at least the first two weeks. The procedure takes two to four hours to complete, and most patients can expect about 60-70% of the transferred fat to remain after the first three to four months.

Where are the Incisions and Scars for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Dr. Landford will do her best to hide the incisions in the natural contours of your body or areas that can be covered by clothing, including your bikini line. The incisions will vary depending on where the fat is being removed from, but any scars that do form will eventually fade and smoothen out over time.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

After your treatment, you will be moved to the post-operative room to wake up peacefully from your surgery. Once you are released by Dr. Landford, you will be able to go home and recover more comfortably. We encourage our patients to have a friend or family member available to provide them a ride home as they will still be under the effects of the anesthesia.

Patients can expect to feel tender and slightly swollen after the procedure and you may be required to wear a pressure garment over the donor area. You should try to move around as much as possible after surgery to promote healthy circulation but don’t exert yourself.

One of the aspects of a BBL recovery that our patients find the most irritating is not being able to sit or apply too much pressure to your butt for the first few weeks of recovery. This is very important because the injected fat needs a chance to graft itself (stick on) to your tissue. Any strain or force put on your butt during this time can cause the injected fat to move into an unfavorable position, or even be reabsorbed by your body. You can expect some deflation as these are natural occurrences, but causing additional trauma to your butt may undo the results.
