Brazilian Butt Lift
A good number of ladies want a buttock or “butt” or “backside” that is more firm, a little bit bigger and rounder. Some have tried butt exercises such as squats but sometimes the results are not forthcoming or the results are not substantial. Others have resulted to wearing shapewear that promises to enhance and lift the buttock muscles but there are no noticeable changes.
For most women, the shape and the proportion of their buttocks is an important factor. Several factors that might contribute towards wanting a firmer, rounder and a little bigger gluteal muscles, include the need to:
- Enhance your lower body curves
- Have clothing fit more attractively
- Enhance the overall proportions between the upper and lower body
- Look natural
- Reduce fat pockets on the thighs, belly or hips
A Brazilian Buttock Lift, also more commonly known as a BBL or as Brazilian Butt Lift surgery in Dubai, is a fat transfer procedure that is specialized to augment the shape and size of the buttocks without the use of implants. The procedure can help fix all these issues without the use of implants. The result is natural looking buttocks as nothing foreign (implants) will be put in the body. The procedure of BBL is sometimes also known as Brazilian Butt Augmentation or BBA though BBL is technically more accurate as the procedure not only changes the size of the buttock but also the shape and size.
It basically involves transferring fat from certain areas of your body and injecting it into the buttock area. The fat for the transfer is taken from the more fatty areas of your body like the stomach, the “love handles,” hips, lower back, or thighs. The fat is then removed with a gentle liposuction device designed to protect live fat cells. Once these fat particles are purified, they’re injected back into the buttocks through a very small incision.
As this procedure requires transferring fat from certain areas of your body to the buttocks, women who are overweight or have stubborn fat deposits are ideal candidates for the Brazilian Fat Transfer procedure. In fact, this is a great procedure if you have extra fat on your body since it functions as a two-in-one liposuction plus butt enhancement surgery.
Brazilian Butt Lift Technique
Brazilian Butt Lift is usually a complex procedure which requires extensive training and experience (on the side of the Plastic Surgeon) in fat transfer techniques as well as a highly-developed eye for aesthetic detail. Liposuction is used in the removal of excess fat mostly from the abdomen, hips, thighs or lower back, and a portion of this fat is strategically injected into the buttocks.
A skilled Plastic Surgeon will help a patient remove fat in the problem areas and enhance the buttocks. He or she will also improve the proportions of the entire body with the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure and ensure the results will be long lasting.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Process
a) The Consultation
The first step of a Brazilian Butt Lift is having a detailed consultation and examination in the clinic with our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, to determine a tailor-made plan for each candidate.
b) The Surgery
The second step is to schedule the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery with the highly qualified and experienced Plastic Surgeon who is an expert in Brazilian Butt Lift and anti-aging procedures. The procedure requires 2 to 4 hours under general or spinal anaesthesia. Prior to the surgery, each patient is screened to ensure that it is safe to proceed with the surgery. This includes a pre-anaesthetic consultation, blood testing, and to ensure the patient is a fit candidate for the procedure.
The procedure is normally done on an out-patient basis or requires one night stay depending on the amount of liposuction to be done or if the procedure is combined with another procedure.
During a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, fat is removed via liposuction from the lower back, hips, abdomen, thighs or any other area that the surgeon finds suitable or that is bothersome to you. The fat which has been extracted is first purified and then prepared for transfer. The surgeon then injects the fat strategically into specific areas on the buttocks so as to increase volume and improve shape.
Since it is sometimes common for some of the injected fat not to fully ‘take’ in its new location, the surgeon takes this into consideration and injects more fat than what was anticipated in order to achieve the needed final results.
The expert Plastic Surgeon accompanies the patient throughout the entire process of recovery and healing, through scheduled follow-ups.
c) The Recovery
There is usually some pain but it is controlled by pain medication. You will not be allowed to lie or sit on your buttocks for 2 weeks after the surgery. Instead you will sleep on your stomach or side or stand for all activities except the toilet.
Your surgeon may instruct you to be mindful of how you are sitting in the weeks after your butt augmentation procedure; however, each patient’s guidelines are different, and your personalized post-operative instructions will be reviewed with you during your pre-op visits.
Daily activities can be resumed after a week and returning to work after about 2 weeks.
Final results will show after 6 months but you will already see a difference within a month and your curvier buttocks as well as your lower body proportions will be noticeable.
Over a period of about 4 weeks, the patient would typically have several post-operation visits to the clinic to monitor the healing process.
Although a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is straightforward, it is important that the right level of intervention or treatment is determined and that the procedure is performed by a qualified and expert Plastic Surgeon. A potential candidate has to fit into certain criteria to be eligible for the procedure and should have:
- The need to dramatically change the shape and size of the buttocks.
- Enough fat for liposuction
- Stable and ideal weight
- The capability of avoiding to sit down for long periods of time
- Realistic expectations regarding the expected results.
- Be in good health both physically and psychologically.
What To Expect From A Brazilian Butt Lift
