Brazilian Butt Lift Miami | BBL Surgery $1500 off


The Brazilian Butt Lift is a great procedure for patients who want to enhance the size and shape of their buttocks. It helps fight the effects of aging, as with age the buttocks tends to drop. Considered a safe form of plastic surgery, it applies the use of a patient’s own tissue. This is a benefit that helps to provide amazing, long-lasting results.

The BBL differs from a traditional butt lift because your own fat is used to lift and reshape the buttocks. It uses liposuction to remove fat from various areas of the body, typically the abdomen, flanks and back, to slim and contour those areas. Then, the harvested fat is purified so only the highest quality fat cells are used for injection to the buttocks. This is known as fat transfer. The fat is injected through very small incisions into the buttocks and placed in between muscle layers close to a blood supply where it has a greater chance of survival instead of being absorbed by the body. The fat transfer enhances the size and shape of the buttocks providing a more youthful appearance and contour. At Elite Plastic Surgery in Miami, the procedure is conducted under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. The surgery takes about two hours.

Benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift

More often, patients choose a Brazilian Butt Lift instead of butt implants because of the natural look and feel fat transfer provides. There is also no risk of complications from suture ruptures, implant exposure and infection as with butt implants. Plus, scarring and discomfort is minimal in comparison. You also get the added bonus of improved body contour in the areas where the fat was harvested with liposuction. Not to mention, the intangible benefits like increased self-confidence.


Many patients often wonder if they are too thin for a Brazilian Butt Lift. For smaller patients, a skinny BBL may be the best option. Even though it may not make the buttocks significantly larger or add as much projection, it does enhance volume and shape and less fat is typically required to give the buttocks a dramatic outcome. In addition to the traditional fat harvesting areas, the abdomen, back and flanks, fat also needs to be harvested from additional areas such as the arm, thighs, and chin. The recovery is the same and so are the post-op guidelines. During your consult, Dr. Salama will advise you if you’re a candidate and what to expect in terms of results. Be sure to ask any questions you may have about the procedure and relay your expectations and goals to Dr. Salama.


For any plastic surgery, there is a BMI requirement to determine eligibility for plastic surgery. It is a measurement of your weight divided by your height to determine if your weight is healthy enough to undergo surgery. Here at Elite Plastic Surgery, the max BMI limit for the Brazilian Butt Lift is 35. Meaning, in order to be considered a candidate by Dr. Salama, you’ll need to be under a BMI of 35.

While the Brazilian Butt Lift is popular among people of every age and body type, it does require being in good health, having 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 surgery. You may be a good candidate if your buttocks is flat, small, disproportionate, saggy or has been impacted by dramatic weight loss.


You can help optimize your Brazilian Butt Lift results and enjoy a more pleasant experience from start to finish by getting ready for your procedure in advance. In order to heal well, proper preparation is key. There are several steps that can be taken to properly prepare. We will discuss the following recommendations and any other applicable instructions with you during your initial consultation and encourage you to ask any questions during this meeting. The better informed you are, the more likely you will be to have a smooth, stress-free operation and an excellent outcome.

  • Make a list of what needs to get done during your recovery and enlist friends or family to assist with your recovery.
  • Prepare a recovery area to ensure rest and tranquility. Remember to have extra pillows and blankets for maximum comfort, and to lay down towels where you sleep to prevent bloodstains.
  • Organize transportation to and from surgery and arrange for patient care for at least the first 24 hours.
  • Avoid taking any blood thinners such as aspirin unless instructed by your surgeon.
  • Smoking increases the risks of complications. There should be no smoking a month prior to surgery.


After surgery, patients are instructed to avoid sitting directly on their buttocks, or laying on their side or back, for at least six weeks. This is so that the transferred fat cells (from the fat injected into the buttocks) do not die from pressure placed on the surgical area, thereby making you lose volume. This task is not as difficult as it sounds. There are many products on the market that patients can use to comfortably recover. Most patients purchase a BBL pillow or boppy pillow to help them sit and sleep. These products help to cushion the areas around your buttocks, such as the thighs, in order to keep your buttocks elevated or “floating” and not touching any surface. Think of a rolled-up towel placed underneath your thighs as you sit. Your buttocks is hanging in the air without touching the seat. The weight is kept off it. This is the same effect you’ll get.

“I knew I made the perfect choice after two years of research. Dr. Salama & his staff truly made me feel welcome. I traveled from Atlanta to have my BBL done I’m satisfied. I would recommend him to anyone considering having surgery.”

When you get your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, your buttocks will be swollen and firm for the first couple of months. Typically, at about 4 to 6 months after surgery, you will undergo what is known as the fluffing stage. After all the swelling and firmness of your buttocks has subsided, your butt becomes soft, rounded out and full. Basically, your buttocks fluff up. Patients are often very happy once they reach the fluffing stage since they see more projection after fluffing has occurred and it also indicates they’re in the final stage of recovery.

How long do Brazilian Butt Lift results last?

The fat transferred from a successful Brazilian Butt Lift will remain in your buttocks 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 your buttocks. As long as you maintain your weight, chances are good that your results will continue for many years without the need for re-treatment.

Since the Brazilian Butt lift uses your own fat, unlike with butt implants, your buttocks will not only look natural, it will also feel natural. Patients should expect to experience firmness of the buttocks for a few months after surgery. Eventually, that firmness fades and patients are left with a fabulous, fluffy booty.


After Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, patients need to wear a special compression garment, which is meant to support the buttocks tissue, compress areas that have undergone liposuction and facilitate healing. Patients 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 buttocks. This is done to help protect the newly placed fatty tissue and ensure its survival. Fat cells that are compressed or crushed can be reabsorbed by the body before they become permanently attached to their new location. This can affect your outcome in several unpredictable ways, including reducing buttock volume or modifying the shape of your buttocks. As a reminder, this period of restricted sitting is brief, about six weeks. We will provide suggestions to make the healing process as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

Patients should be sufficiently healed 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 months to see the final results.


While being a safer butt augmentation option, there are still risks to consider with the Brazilian Butt Lift. Some risks include discomfort, infection, asymmetry hematoma, and excessive blood loss, which is why selecting your plastic surgeon is of the utmost importance.
