BBL for Men: What You Need to Know About a Male Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

Brazilian butt lifts are a very popular cosmetic procedure for women. But did you know that male Brazilian butt lifts (BBL) also exist?

A male BBL is performed to create more defined and square buttocks rather than rounding the shape of your rear end. There are subtle differences between male and female BBLs, but in both surgeries, the surgeon removes fat from one area to and injects it in another to improve appearance.

This article will discuss what male Brazilian butt lifts involve and what you need to know if you are looking to have this cosmetic surgery performed.

What Is a Brazilian Buttlift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure for butt augmentation that involves liposuction to enable transferring excess fat cells from areas of the body to one’s buttocks to create more volume and shape. 

Is There a Difference in a Butt Lift for Male and Female Buttocks?

There is a male Brazilian butt lift (BBL) version of this cosmetic surgery for the male buttocks, as well as a female one.

In both types of surgeries, surgeons make an incision near or around your hip area where they remove excess fat cells through liposuction before harvesting one’s own fat for use elsewhere on the body.

The surgeon injects harvested fat cells into specific areas within your bottom region based on what you desire to achieve aesthetically with a male Brazilian buttock lift. This process of fat transfer is referred to as “fat grafting.”


The Male Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure: What Are Your Options?

There are two commonly performed male Brazilian butt lift procedures: gluteal augmentation and gluteal shaping.

Gluteal Augmentation

Gluteal augmentation is a buttock enhancement procedure that involves increasing the size of your buttocks by augmenting them with implants.

Butt augmentation surgery is typically recommended for male butt lift patients who desire more fullness in their backside but don’t want to undergo traditional fat grafting procedures or do not have enough fat to achieve their desired shape.

Gluteal Shaping

Gluteal shaping is a surgical procedure used to improve the contours of your buttocks without necessarily increasing their size.

This buttock enhancement surgery is ideal for male patients with asymmetrical or undefined buttocks or who want to achieve a more angular appearance. In this procedure, surgeons remove excess fatty tissue from certain areas of your bottom region and sculpt it into a more pleasing shape.

Which BBL Procedure Is Right for Me?

The male Brazilian buttock lift procedure that is best for you will all depend on your goals. Men choose BBL procedures for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Improve self-esteem
  • Correct asymmetry
  • Achieve a more angular appearance

Working with you directly, your surgeon will help you decide which surgery is best for you and discuss all your BBL options.

Not everyone is a candidate for male BBL. You should always consult your doctor before undergoing any plastic surgery, especially a male BBL.

To make sure you are a male BBL candidate, some criteria you should meet before undergoing BBL surgery include:

  • You are in good overall health
  • You are physically active
  • You are a nonsmoker
  • You have enough body fat volume for a graft
  • You have realistic expectations of what male BBL can do for you

Typically, male patients in good physical shape who desire more defined buttocks in line with their ideal male physique and a better shape to their rear end are ideal candidates for male Brazilian butt lift surgery.

How Much Does a Male BBL Cost?

Why? How is that possible? Overhead costs for plastic surgery in Tijuana, Mexico, from medical supplies to real estate are lower, which allows us to give you a surgical experience unlike any other at a cost that cannot be matched.


What Is the Recovery Like for BBL Surgery?

Many patients can return home the same day as their surgery as most male BBL procedures do not require an overnight hospital stay.

For aftercare, male BBL patients should expect some pain and discomfort and maybe some fluid leakage at the incision area where the fat was removed. The liquid release is normal and should stop within 24 hours of your surgery.

You will also experience swelling around your newly shaped buttocks for several weeks, so you may want to plan on avoiding pants that hug or constrict this area of the body during this period.

However, after about 5-6 weeks, the swelling should go down for most patients; you should begin seeing your more permanent results.
