What is a
Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a popular aesthetic procedure for enhancing the size and shape of the butt to achieve a more attractive appearance. The procedure removes that stubborn excess from areas of the body such as the stomach, thighs, and hips through liposuction. The harvested fat is refined and precisely injected into the butt to create a fuller and rounder appearance. The procedure is designed to be minimally invasive, and the results are typically long-lasting when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon.

Brazilian Butt Lift Benefits

By sculpting and reshaping the buttocks, a BBL boosts confidence levels and improves self-esteem, allowing individuals to feel more comfortable and attractive in their own skin. Additionally, the enhanced proportions achieved through a BBL contribute to a more balanced and youthful appearance, revitalizing one's overall silhouette and promoting a sense of vibrancy.

The liposuction component of the BBL not only contours the buttocks but also targets stubborn fat deposits in other areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, resulting in comprehensive body sculpting. This minimally invasive approach utilizes the body's own fat cells for augmentation, providing natural-looking results with reduced risk of complications and a faster recovery period. A BBL offers long-lasting enhancements that empower individuals to embrace their curves and enjoy a renewed sense of self-assurance.

Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates

Ideal candidates are people seeking to enhance the volume and shape of their butt while also contouring different areas of the body through targeted fat removal. Candidates should be generally healthy, nonsmokers, and have sensible expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. While age is not necessarily a limiting factor, patients should have a stable weight and sufficient fat deposits for harvesting.

Contraindications for a BBL may include certain medical conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes, cardiovascular issues, or compromised immune function. Additionally, individuals with allergies to anesthesia or specific medications may not be suitable candidates. It's essential to undergo a thorough consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Russo to assess candidacy and discuss any potential risks or concerns before proceeding with the procedure.

Consultation and Preparation

During your consultation with Dr. Russo, he will carefully assess your candidacy for the procedure, discussing your goals, medical history, and any concerns you may have. You'll have the opportunity to ask questions and address any uncertainties. Dr. Russo will then create a treatment plan tailored to your unique anatomy and aesthetic desires.

Prior to the procedure, you'll receive detailed instructions on how to prepare, which may include adjustments to medications, lifestyle habits, and dietary considerations. Our team will guide you through every step of the process, ensuring you feel informed, comfortable, and confident throughout your BBL experience.

Your Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

Dr. Russo will begin by administering anesthesia to make sure you are comfortable throughout the surgery. Depending on the extent of the procedure and your medical history, either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia may be used. Once you are properly numbed and relaxed, liposuction is performed in order to harvest fat from targeted areas of the body such as the flanks, thighs, or abdomen.

Next, the harvested fat is purified and prepared for injection into the buttocks to achieve the desired volume and contour. Dr. Russo employs advanced techniques to meticulously inject the fat into strategic areas of the buttocks, sculpting and shaping them to create natural-looking results. The length of the procedure can vary depending on the amount of fat being transferred and the complexity of the case, typically ranging from two to four hours. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Russo and his experienced team prioritize your safety and comfort to ensure a smooth and successful outcome.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Following your BBL surgery, you will notice the initial results right away, but the final results will become more visible as the swelling subsides in the following weeks and months. To ensure optimal healing and long-lasting results, it is crucial to follow Dr. Russo's post-operative instructions precisely.

During the recovery phase, you must avoid putting direct pressure on your buttocks (including sitting) for the first two weeks, allowing the transferred fat to settle and integrate correctly. You will also need to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and support the newly contoured buttocks. Dr. Russo will provide specific guidelines on when you can gradually resume normal activities and exercise. To maintain your results, it is crucial to lead a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise. Avoiding significant weight fluctuations can help preserve the volume and shape achieved through the procedure. Additionally, practicing good skin care and protecting your skin from sun exposure can help reduce scarring and maintain the overall appearance of your buttocks. Keeping regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Russo will allow him to monitor how your results are progressing and address any questions or concerns to ensure long-term satisfaction with your results.
