Understanding the Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian butt lift is among the most popular treatments performed in the U.S. This butt-enhancing treatment is in high demand, as when performed with precision and care, produces a long-lasting result. A fat transfer procedure, the Brazilian butt lift is one of the most effective treatments to create a fuller, shapelier butt without synthetic implants. The procedure involves natural fat transfer and comes with the added benefit of creating a more sculpted look to your waist, love handles, or other body area from which fat cells are harvested.

Weight loss, aging, and hereditary can be the cause of a smaller, flat, saggy, or deflated-looking butt. A curvy, round rear end is currently considered a very desirable physical attribute. A fat transfer to the buttocks adds volume to the butt to create a delightful lifted, rounder look.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a careful and precise fat transfer process, which first uses liposuction to harvest unwanted fat from one section of your body. Once harvested and purified, the fat cells are transferred to the buttocks to create a rounded look. It takes an artistic eye to perform the Brazilian butt lift. Our highly trained, experienced, double-board certified, talented Long Island plastic surgeon Dr. John Layliev creates natural-looking results in butt enhancement at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery in Melville, NY.

Who is a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?

To find out if you are an ideal candidate for a custom Brazilian butt lift, you will be examined to ensure you are safe for the procedure. To be a good candidate, you must have enough excess fat in specific body areas to extract for the removal, grafting, and transfer process. If you are very slim, you may not be a candidate for this procedure. 

For a successful procedure, you need to have a reasonable degree of skin resilience. If you have an excess of loose, hanging skin, a surgical butt lift is likely a more appropriate procedure. A Brazilian butt lift in Long Island has the unique advantage of being entirely natural – your own fat cells are transferred and become viable in the new location, for long-term results.

How is a Brazilian butt lift performed?

A Brazilian butt lift, or “BBL” is an outpatient treatment that takes an average of two to three hours to complete. The length of the surgery will reflect the quantity of fat being removed and transferred. A gentle liposuction technique is the first step to remove fat from specific areas on the body including the abdominal area, hips, and thighs. 

At North Shore Cosmetic Surgery, our advanced fat harvesting technique is performed in a manner so that the fat is never exposed to air before it is purified in a sterile, closed system. The viable, healthy fat cells are separated and placed into syringes. Finally, the injection process is performed, with the harvested fat injected layer by layer with a subtle massage to ensure a symmetrical, even result. This process is repeated numerous times until the ideal roundness and shape has been attained.

What is the recovery time?

After a Brazilian butt lift in Long Island, you will be able to return home to rest and recover. You will have two separate areas to heal, the liposuction sites and the buttocks. During healing, you will be restricted from placing any unnecessary weight on your butt for at least two weeks. It is normal to expect some swelling. Once the swelling has subsided, the changes in shape and volume are visible, which takes in the range of four to six weeks. Your butt will appear fuller, more lifted, and shapelier. The areas from which the fat was removed will be slimmer and more sculpted, enhancing your figure.
