The Brazilian Butt Lift: Firm and Lift the Buttocks

One of the most common problem areas for people of all ages are the buttocks which quickly lose firmness and definition without constant exercise. However, a new cosmetic surgery has been developed to resolve these issues — the Brazilian Buttock Lift.

Hi I’m Dr. Leo Barccaro and today I wanted to talk to you about the BBL, which is also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift. So a BBL is a procedure in which we commonly think of as augmenting the buttocks and that’s is. But that’s not entirely true what it really is, is a body contouring procedure in which we use Liposuction and Liposuction techniques to remove fat from certain areas of the body and place it around the buttocks and thighs to give it a more shapely appearance. So with the Liposuction, we take in areas of the waist or the flanks, and we can take that fat that is harvested and inject it around the buttocks and around the hips to give a more shapely hourglass appearance. I like to divide the BBL’s into two big categories, the kind of standard larger BBL and then what’s called the mini BBL. Some people have enough fat to really bring down a lot of volume from different parts of the body and really augment the buttocks and some people want that look of a very small waist and a very large buttocks. But I’d say most people want a little bit more of a natural look, which can also be achieved with the standard larger BBL. However there are some patients who do not have a lot of fat around the body and still want improvement around their torso shape and contouring, and in those patients we can offer a mini BBL in which less volume is used, however we get nice natural results, creating that hourglass appearance and creating that shapely waist to hip ratio.

This procedure uses a two-pronged approach to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the hips and buttocks. The first step is the removal of fatty tissue from deposits on the patient: usually located on the waist, upper back, thighs or arms. This liposuction produces an immediate slimming effect, but this improved aesthetic is then further enhanced by grafting the harvested fatty tissue into the buttocks.

How the Brazilian Lift Enhances Your Appearance

While the Brazilian Lift is the ideal solution for patients with flat, sagging or unbalanced buttocks, the procedure’s ability to lift and reshape the buttocks increases its appeal for a broad range of patients. A large portion of the grafted fat is typically placed in the upper region of the buttocks, producing a more pronounced curve and the appearance of higher, lifted buttocks. Fat may also be deposited in the area to produce tightened skin, which appears smoother, firmer and more youthful.
The combined effect of a slimmer waist and firmer, fuller buttocks creates a truly attractive torso, which is why the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery has become so popular. Patients who elect to have this cosmetic surgery are so thrilled with the results that they often recommend it to friends.

Trust Dr. Baccaro and Dr. Bonett for Stunning Results

Our Naples, Florida-based plastic surgery practice relies on Dr. Leopoldo M. Baccaro and Dr. Andrew Bonett as its Brazilian Butt Lift specialist. Dr. Baccaro received extensive training at the prestigious Houston Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center, where he worked with some of the most well-renowned practitioners in the art of cosmetic surgery. With honors and awards throughout medical school and his residency, Dr. Baccaro earned a stellar reputation for high quality surgical care with both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery procedures. 

It is important for the success of the surgery that a comprehensive examination is performed beforehand. During this consultation, the surgeon will identify the areas where he will perform liposuction to harvest fatty tissue, as well as the locations where the fat will be grafted. He may also provide a number of Brazilian Butt Lift before and after plastic surgery images to help you understand what kinds of results can be obtained.

In addition to the professional accolades received during their expert training and residencies, Dr. Baccaro was also cited by his peers for being an attentive and compassionate caregiver. Our surgeons and the Naples Plastic Surgery staff are committed to making the entire Brazilian Butt Lift process a comfortable and successful one.
