What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Like many patients, you may have heard that a BBL can enhance your backside and are now wondering: What is a Brazilian butt lift?

- Lift buttocks
- Add volume

- Enhance curves
- Achieve a more rounded backside
- Produce a more proportionate physique
How Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?
During a Brazilian butt lift, liposuction is performed on an area of the body containing excess fat. Common donor sites include the abdomen, flanks, thighs, hips, and back.
The harvested fat is then processed to separate live fat cells from liposuction fluid. Finally, purified fat is reinjected into the buttocks and hips to achieve a rounder and more lifted appearance.

Now that we’ve answered the question – What is a Brazilian butt lift? – you may be curious if BBL is right for you.
The ideal Brazilian butt lift candidate is a healthy adult who wants to improve the size, shape, position, and fullness of her buttocks. It’s important that the patient have enough transferrable fat and realistic expectations of procedure outcomes.
