What a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Can Do for You
Some individuals with a slender build have been unhappy with the look of their flat posterior for as long as they can remember. Others were originally happy with the look of their backside, but have noticed that the effect of gravity has ultimately taken a toll on the derrière, causing it to sag toward the ground. In addition, unwanted fat that has accumulated throughout the areas surrounding the buttocks — the hips, lower back and flanks — can mar the original youthful contour of the posterior, making the entire area look droopy, lumpy or simply unshapely.
If you can relate to these aesthetic concerns, don’t worry. Our Tijuana plastic surgeons can provide a shapelier, more voluminous backside with a Brazilian buttocks lift. Patients interested in enhancing their curves may also consider butt augmentation with implants as an alternative to injections.
How is a BBL Performed?
Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient surgery, performed under general anesthesia. (For our out-of-town patients, VIDA Wellness and Beauty offers a tranquil recovery boutique where they can recuperate from surgery in comfort.)
The first step in Brazilian butt lift surgery is to perform liposuction on the regions around the buttocks. For instance, your plastic surgeon may remove fat from the lower back, flanks and other areas of the waist, hips or thighs. Doing so provides a slimmer contour around the derrière, which, in turn, accentuates the feminine curve of the posterior. Performing liposuction also supplies the plastic surgeon with the donor fat used to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks.
Fat Transfer to Buttocks
After the harvested fat has been purified, your surgeon transfers it to the buttocks to enhance the volume and shape of the derrière. He re-injects the donor fat into the areas of the buttocks that require enhancement, usually the upper quadrant of the buttocks. He carefully blends the fat throughout the treatment area, adding more fat as needed, to provide a smooth, perkier profile of the posterior. Once your plastic surgeon is satisfied with the fuller, rounder appearance of the derrière, he dresses the treated area with bandages.
Is BBL Safe?
Yes, having a BBL is safe, when done right. Let’s go over some vital points to consider that will help make your BBL safe and successful! So far, we’ve explained all the things that make a BBL a great, effective and natural way to enhance your butt. However, a BBL is still a complex surgery that requires an experienced surgeon to be safe and get you the results you’ll love.
While risks are minimal, you should always consider them. BBL risks include:
Common surgery risks such as anesthesia complications and excessive blood loss
Fat embolism (when fat is erroneously injected into the bloodstream)
Keep in mind that all of the risks are considerably minimized by a board-certified surgeon. The first and most crucial step to making your BBL experience safe is working with an experienced plastic surgeon. This will make the rest of the process simpler and safer! Interview the surgeon you’d like to work with, check his or her credentials and specific experience in body enhancement procedures. An experienced surgeon will make this process easy, information readily available and explain every step of the surgery to you.
The next step is understanding the safety factors that are specific to BBL. This includes:
- The amount of fat the doctor will remove and from where. It’s important to remember that liposuction is a surgery in itself.
- Where and how deep is your doctor going to inject the fat. In order to have a safe and well-performed BBL, your surgeon will explain how the fat will be injected adapting to your anatomy.
- Modifications you need to make to your routine during recovery. This includes buying special garments, avoiding physical activity and sitting down.
- Understanding the risk for bruising and infections and what steps you can take to prevent this.
The third step to making your BBL safe is being an informed patient. Research not only your surgeon but also the anesthesiologist’s and clinic’s credentials, prepare for recovery and clear your doubts with the surgeon.
How Long Does BBL Surgery Take?
The exact length of your BBL surgery will depend on the amount of fat you are getting extracted and injected. BBL surgery for most patients takes between 3 to 8 hours, from the moment you are first put under anesthesia.
A general timeline for BBL surgery, will look like this:
- Your doctor will mark donor and incision sites.
- Anesthesia is administered.
- Tumescent fluid is injected to decrease pain and inflammation.
- Donor fat is removed with liposuction.
- The fat is centrifuged and “purified” to be re-injected into the buttocks.
- Fat is injected.
- The surgeon closes the incisions.
Does BBL Last Forever?
Results from a Brazilian Butt Lift are long term and can be permanent depending on your body and your recovery. The answer to “Is BBL permanent?” is not as simple as a yes or no because of fat survival. Since you are receiving your own fat, there is a possibility that it will be reabsorbed or decrease if you lose a substantial amount of weight, just like fat anywhere else in your body.
Most patients lose around 40% of the fat the first weeks after BBL surgery. After this and when the swelling has gone down, you can see the results that will likely be permanent. Our expert surgeons recommend not sitting down the first 4 weeks after surgery and maintaining a healthy weight in order to maximize fat cell survival.
BBL Recovery Time
Symptoms are most intense in the first three to five days after surgery, but will gradually subside. Although swelling will improve within six to eight weeks, it may take about six months for any residual swelling to subside completely.
Patients can typically return to work about 10 days after Brazilian butt lift surgery. For about one month following the procedure, they should minimize the amount of time they spend sitting. If an individual’s job requires that he or she sit for many hours at a time, using a special pillow to take some of the weight off the buttocks is recommended. Brazilian butt lift patients should avoid strenuous activity, including exercise and sexual activity, for about 4 weeks.
The treatment area may be tender, sore, bruised or swollen. Symptoms are most intense in the first three to five days after surgery and will gradually subside. Although swelling will improve within six to eight weeks, it may take about six months for any residual swelling to subside completely.
BBL Recovery Pain
As with any surgery, BBL recovery can be painful and uncomfortable. When talking about Brazilian Buttlift surgery recovery it’s important that you understand that as with any surgery, there will be some pain and discomfort. However, pain should be manageable if you follow your surgeon’s instructions.
The first 48 hours are usually the most uncomfortable for patients since swelling, soreness and general tenderness in the area become more apparent. After 48 hours, swelling will start to decrease and you’ll feel more comfortable. Your surgeon will also discuss pain management with you and send you home with pain medications and recommendations to lessen the pain. As a general rule, wearing compression garments, staying hydrated and avoiding sitting down helps.
BBL surgery scars, if any, are very small and barely perceptible! Brazilian Butt Lift surgery leaves minimal scarring because the size of the incisions made for both liposuction and fat injections are very small.
While we cannot guarantee zero scarring, the techniques and expertise of our surgeons guarantee that any scars left will be minimal. These are the top things you need to know about BBL scars:
- Scarring can only develop in the extraction and injection sites. Your surgeon uses a very thin cannula for these procedures. BBL incisions are placed in hidden or hard to notice areas.
- Since your buttocks can easily be protected from sun exposure (at least during your recovery!), this makes the area even less prone to scarring. Protecting the area from the sun can help the scars fade and become almost imperceptible.
- Your skin color can make you more or less prone to scarring, but by following your surgeon’s incision care instructions, you can minimize this risk.
- Your surgeon can also help you with an additional treatment specifically designed to reduce surgical scars

A Male BBL will have the same cost as a female BBL: approximately $4,500 US, with the final cost depending on the patient himself. What does change for a Male BBL is the way the doctor:
- Performs the liposuction. The plastic surgeon sculpts the male body differently, emphasizing on a slim and manly physique around the abdomen and thighs.
