Brazilian Butt Lift Miami
The Brazilian Butt Lift surgery (BBL) is a butt augmentation procedure that results in a more prominent, perky and attractive buttocks, sensuous silhouette and hourglass figure. Your own body fat is used to augment the buttocks in the most natural of ways.
With age, the buttocks can drop. A Brazilian Butt Lift helps fight the effects of aging. Considered a safe form of plastic surgery, the Brazilian Butt Lift applies the use of a patient’s own tissue. This is a benefit that helps to provide amazing, long-lasting results.
Through the process of liposuction, fat from various other areas of the body (such as the abdomen, back, hips and thighs) is removed, slimming those areas and providing a more contoured look. The removed fat is then processed and only the most pure and viable fat is injected into the buttocks. This is also known as a fat transfer. The transfer of fat enhances the size of the buttocks, which is massaged and reshaped to provide a more youthful appearance.
Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
Basically speaking, the Brazilian Butt Lift is a fat transfer to buttocks. Conducted usually under general anesthesia, the Brazilian Butt Lift is an outpatient procedure where fat is harvested from other areas of the body like the abdomen, back, hips or thighs and purified so that only the highest quality fat cells are used for injection to the buttocks. The harvested fat cells are placed in between muscle layers and close to a blood supply where they have a greater chance of survival instead of being absorbed by the body. Fat transfer also creates new collagen since fat contains stem cells that help create new tissue, improving the texture of skin. The fat transfer is made through very small incisions into the buttocks. The fat restores shape and volume, tightens the skin, all while providing a more youthful appearance and shape. The procedure may take anywhere from an hour and a half to three hours, depending on various factors such as the amount of fat that needs to be removed and the desired shape and size of the buttocks.
What are the advantages of the Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
More often, patients choose the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure instead of gluteal implants because of the natural looking results the Brazilian Butt Lift with fat transfer provides. Plus, there are many additional benefits such as the reduced chances of rejection and risks of complications from suture ruptures, implant exposure and infection; as well as minimal scarring and discomfort, and the improved body contour in the areas where the fat was harvested via liposuction for the Brazilian Butt Lift. Not to mention the intangible benefits, like increased self-confidence, the Brazilian Butt Lift provides.
Brazilian Butt Lift Risks
While the Brazilian Butt Lift is a safer butt augmentation procedure, there are still risks to consider. Some of the risks associated with the Brazilian Butt Lift include discomfort, infection, asymmetry hematoma, and excessive blood loss, which is why the selecting your plastic surgeon is of the utmost importance. Your plastic surgeon should be board-certified with a high level of experience, artistry and technical skill. Dr. Moises Salama is revered for his technique having performed more than 3,500 Brazilian Butt Lifts and popularizing the procedure.
Who is a good candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift?
While the Brazilian Butt Lift is popular among people of every age and body type, it does require being in good health, realistic expectations about the procedure, and having spare pounds for the fat transfer to the buttocks in order to attain quality, long lasting results. Thinner patients may be asked to gain weight for the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.
A BBL may be appropriate for men and women with asymmetrical buttocks, flat buttocks, small buttocks, disproportionate buttocks, sagging buttocks or those whose buttock’s shape has been impacted by dramatic weight loss.

What Happens After the Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
What can you expect after having the Brazilian Butt Lift? After surgery, patients will need to wear a special compression garment, which is meant to support the buttocks tissue, compress areas that have been liposuctioned, and facilitate healing. Patients will also need to refrain from putting too much weight on their buttocks for several weeks. Sitting should be done on something cushioned or padded and is not recommended for prolonged periods of time, for at least two full weeks, to prevent the fat from being absorbed or displaced. Patients should also refrain from sleeping on their backs to avoid pressure on the buttock.
Patients should be sufficiently healed from a Brazilian Butt Lift to return to work after three weeks of surgery, unless work involves demanding physical labor, and should fully recover from bruising, swelling, soreness and pain after about two months. Workout routines can be resumed after two months; and with sufficient time, patients should be able to partake in intense physical activity.
In general, it usually takes a month to begin to feel normal and six to see the final results.
Brazilian Butt Lift Results Are Long-lasting
The fat transfer from a successful Brazilian Butt Lift surgery will remain in your buttock for the rest of your life. It will age with you just like the rest of your body tissue, which dictates the importance of a healthy lifestyle including exercise to help maintain the shape and size of the buttocks.

Brazilian Butt Lift costs vary by patient depending on the number of areas where fat is removed and transferred. Price ranges from $5,000 to $15,000. Please make sure to research your physician and that he/she is Board Certified.
