What is a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)?
A Brazilian Butt Lift, often referred to as BBL, is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without implants. It involves the extraction of fat from various parts of the body, purifying it, and then re-injecting it into the buttocks. The result is a fuller, rounder derriere that enhances your body proportions.

During the procedure, fat is first harvested from areas such as your hips, abdomen, or thighs through a gentle liposuction technique. This harvested fat is then carefully processed and purified before it is strategically injected back into the buttocks to enhance its shape and volume.

Brazilian Butt Lift Q & A
What is a Brazilian butt lift?
A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a cosmetic surgery that increases the size and enhances the shape of your buttocks. Larger buttocks are on trend and can give you the look of having an hourglass-shaped figure.
BBL uniquely involves removing fat from somewhere else in your body, which Dr. Ingram then transfers to your buttocks. He discusses possible fat-removal areas with you ahead of your surgery, which can include your:
- Low back
Typically, Dr. Ingram uses liposuction to remove the extra fat before processing it so it’s safe for injection. Because it’s fat from your own body and not artificial implants, the results tend to look and feel more natural.
What should I expect after my Brazilian butt lift?
You can expect some swelling and bruising following your Brazilian butt lift at Ingram Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Ingram gives you a compression garment to wear as you heal and advises you on how to manage any postoperative discomfort with the medications he provides.
In order to heal effectively, you must keep your weight off your buttocks. This gives new blood vessels the chance to grow in and around the newly transplanted fat cells. You receive special instructions from Dr. Ingram on how to sit, rest, and sleep until healing is complete. You also visit Ingram Cosmetic Surgery for follow-ups so Dr. Ingram can track your healing.
Am I a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?
Before deciding on a Brazilian butt lift or any other cosmetic surgery that catches your interest, you should visit Ingram Cosmetic Surgery for a detailed consultation with Dr. Ingram. He goes over your medical history and performs a brief physical exam to check on your health. This includes checking your lungs, heart, and upper airway.
He also makes sure that you:
- Have enough fat to extract and use for the transfer
- Have realistic expectations for your results
- Are generally in good health
- Can stop smoking and drinking for a while before and after surgery
How long does a BBL procedure take?
The duration of a BBL procedure can vary based on the patient’s individual needs, but typically it takes about 2 to 4 hours.
Is the BBL procedure painful?
The BBL procedure is performed under anesthesia, so you won’t feel anything during the surgery. Postoperative discomfort can be managed effectively with prescribed pain medication.
How long is the recovery period after a BBL?
Recovery from a BBL can take about 2-4 weeks, depending on the individual’s healing process. Patients are usually advised to avoid sitting directly on their buttocks for at least 2 weeks after the procedure.
Are the results of a BBL permanent?
While the results of a BBL are long-lasting, they may not be permanent. Factors like weight fluctuation, aging, and lifestyle can affect the longevity of the results. Significant weight loss after a BBL can affect the results as it might cause a reduction in the size
of the buttocks. Therefore, maintaining a stable weight is recommended to preserve the results. Dr. Ingram encourages you to refine your habits and routine so you can maintain great-looking BBL results for as long as possible.
What are the risks associated with a BBL?
As with any surgery, a BBL carries risks such as infection, bleeding, and an adverse reaction to anesthesia. Specific to BBL, risks may include fat embolism, scarring, numbness, and changes in skin sensation.
How is a BBL different from buttock implants?
A BBL uses your own fat to enhance your buttocks, providing a more natural look and feel. Buttock implants, on the other hand, involve inserting silicone implants into the buttocks.
