Baby got back, but maybe you don’t. Not everyone is born with a perfect derrière. For those of us not so well-endowed back there, there’s always a BBL. A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a transformative procedure designed to sculpt a curvier, more balanced figure. This popular surgery combines liposuction and fat transfer to enhance the size and shape of your buttocks, achieving a fuller, rounder, and lifted appearance. The benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift include:

  • Natural-Looking Enhancement: BBL uses your own body fat for a more natural and harmonious result.
  • Curvier Silhouette: Achieve a more balanced and hourglass figure with fuller buttocks.
  • Improved Confidence: Feel more confident and empowered in your own skin.

What is a BBL? 

A BBL does not actually “lift” the buttocks as its name implies. Instead, it’s a specialized form of fat grafting that involves taking fat from one part of the body and injecting it into the buttocks. As a result, a BBL is actually 2 procedures in one: 1) liposuction to remove unwanted fat, and 2) fat grafting to inject the fat into the buttocks for more volume. 

Depending on the desired results, area of excess fat, and the recommendations of your surgeon, a BBL may either be performed as a solo procedure or as part of a body lift. Each buttock lift surgery is custom-tailored to the individual’s problem areas and needs within the gluteal area. During your consultation, Dr. Tran will discuss your body shape, aesthetic preferences, and medical history to ensure a BBL is the right choice for you. She will work with you to customize a procedure that will best suit your body, needs, and desired look. 

Expected results after my Brazilian butt lift 

Unlike procedures involving implants like breast implant surgery, a BBL is considered a semi-permanent procedure. That is because of 2 factors. First, some fat cells may not survive the transfer process. And second, the results depend on the health and size of your fat cells. Maintaining your weight with diet and exercise can help results last.  

Following surgery, you will need to refrain from sleeping on your back or side and sitting on your butt for 4-6 weeks. This will give the newly transferred fat cells the best chance for survival. You may experience bruising, swelling, redness and some discomfort which can be managed with proper pain medication. Dr. Tran may also require you to wear a compression garment. A compression garment will support areas where fat was removed and help shape your new buttocks.

Roderic Wallace Trusts Dr. Victor Lacombe

“Probably one of Dr. Lacombe’s greatest assets is his intuitive understanding of what it takes to create a very natural yet aesthetically pleasing result. In my case, a brow lift opened up my eyes, a subtle lift to the tip of my drooping nose dealt with the negative effects of gravity, a small chin implant balanced a newly sculpted neck and stronger jaw line… yes, a number of procedures done at one time, but oh so worth it in the long run. I can enthusiastically endorse Victor as one of the finest plastic surgeons around.*”
