Choosing Brazilian Butt Lift

BBL surgery in Mountain View

Brazilian Butt Lift is a great surgical option for patients who seek a fuller, contoured shape for the derrière and an improved profile for the lower body.

Below, trusted Bay Area plastic surgeon Dr. Alexander Ereso reviews the head-turning benefits of this popular procedure, and discuss key aspects of the surgery and recovery.

Targeted Enhancement

Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat from the arms, flanks, thighs or abdomen to add proportion and volume to the buttocks. Fat is harvested using liposuction, the proven surgical technique that is commonly used to shrink pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Your genetic profile largely determines the size and shape of the buttocks and how your body stores excess fat. Creating the Brazilian look without a surgical solution is difficult, as any weight gain you might attempt in order to add volume to the buttocks will affect the entire body.

Drawing a New Profile

Adding volume is not the only goal of Brazilian Butt Lift – creating an appealing shape is also important. As experienced Bay Area plastic surgeon, Dr. Ereso takes care to add balance and proportion to your final result, in addition to the full, contoured profile you seek.

During Brazilian Butt Lift, the fat harvested from pockets elsewhere on the body is purified and filtered. Although such transfers have been performed for many years, today’s technique is far more sophisticated than procedures done decades ago. Advanced plastic surgeons now use a small-particle version of your body’s natural fat that will become an integral part of your buttocks. A portion of the fat cells will be absorbed by the body, and your surgeon will compensate for this during the transfer.

Because Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fat cells, it is a more natural alternative to implants. The procedure is simple and convenient, with fewer potential complications. The result tends to look and feel better, too. Implants or fillers may be advised for very slim patients who may not have sufficient fat to transfer.

Recovery Timeline

Dr. Ereso performs Brazilian Butt Lift as an outpatient procedure, under general anesthetic. Discomfort during recovery is minimal, but you will need to tolerate the inconvenience of not sitting or sleeping on your back for approximately two weeks. Patients must modify physical activity for about two months, but are typically able to return to work after 10 days. You will be able to admire your final shape in about six months, and the results will be long-lasting.
