What is Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a modern form of buttocks augmentation that eliminates the need for silicone implants that could shift or rupture. This technique of enhancing the shape and volume of the buttocks is an intricate three-part process that involves harvesting fat, purifying fat cells, and depositing the purified cells in the appropriate layers of buttocks tissue.
Benefits of Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
There are several reasons why the Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular plastic surgery procedure, including:
- The body is enhanced without the use of foreign objects or substances.
- Without silicone implants, there is no risk of buttocks shapeshifting or deflating.
- The Brazilian Butt Lift requires only tiny incisions, so there is minimal scarring.
- Fat is removed from an area of excess in the body, enhancing the overall figure.
- The outcome of BBL surgery looks and feels natural because it is.
Butt Lift Procedure
Fat harvesting is achieved with Vaser power assisted liposuction. This initial step in the enhancement process is conducted through a small incision in an area of the body where there is fat to spare. Common areas include the thighs, abdomen, and back.
Depending on how much fat is available, more than one area may be used as a harvest site. During liposuction, fat is first gently separated into small parcels using the energy of ultrasound waves. The fat cells are then extracted using a small power assisted hollow tube called a cannula. The fat that is removed is mixed with blood and other anesthesia fluids. Special processing using a “Red Head” device separates pure fat cells from other substances. These cells are living and can be deposited into another area of the body.
The fat transfer is achieved using a special syringe that injects fat cells into the subcutaneous tissue that sits above the muscle of the buttocks. Dr. Salzman uses artistic layering to build volume and shape that harmonizes with each patient’s body frame. Dr. Salzman is one of a few surgeons in the US with experience in placing the fat cells into the buttock using Ultrasound. It is well known that fat placed into the buttock muscles can migrate into the large veins of the buttock and travel to the lungs where it can cause breathing problems called a pulmonary embolus. These can be fatal. Using Ultrasound guidance in placement of fat into the buttock, safely allows for proper fat placement into the subcutaneous tissues eliminating the risk of pulmonary embolus.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
Adults of all ages can benefit from Brazilian Butt Lift surgery if they are dissatisfied with the curves of their backside. The extent of enhancement varies from one person to another. One should not assume that a Brazilian Butt Lift will augment their backside to an extent that looks obvious and borderline unnatural. As we’ve seen throughout history, trends in body-shape change. This is demonstrated in younger patients’ desire for more volume and more obvious contouring and in older patients’ desire for a gentler, more subtle lift and shape increase.
If you are in good general health, do not smoke, and are interested in reshaping your buttocks with all-natural material, contact us. The Brazilian Butt Lift may be just what you need.
Butt Lift Surgery Results
Brazilian Butt Lift surgery doesn’t just increase the volume of the buttocks. The outcome of this procedure is an all-around improvement in body shape. Because fat is reduced near the buttocks, we achieve better contours across adjacent areas. Overall, patients who undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift can expect:
- Restored or improved volume in the buttocks area
- The appearance of elevated buttocks (less sagging)
- Buttocks shape that harmonizes with the rest of the body
Is Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Painful?
BBL surgery includes two different techniques, liposuction and fat injections. The surgery is usually conducted with general anesthesia, which prevents the passage of pain signals to the brain. Patients do not experience any pain during their BBL procedure.
After a Brazilian Butt Lift, mild discomfort may be managed with prescription pain medication for a few days. Patients are often ready to transition to an over-the-counter pain reliever within the first week after their procedure.
Is Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Safe?
The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery generally considers Brazilian Butt Lift safe. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, along with other plastic surgery associations, formed Task Force for Safety in Gluteal Fat Grafting a few years ago to refine the safety guidelines for buttocks augmentation using fat transfer. It sounds simple to take fat from one area of the body and put it someplace else, especially the buttocks, seeing that this area is mostly fat. However, Brazilian Butt Lift surgery is complex and requires the specific training and experience that a plastic surgeon gets through extensive education.
Why Choose Dr. Salzman For Butt Lift Surgery
The demand for buttocks enhancement has increased in recent years, and surgeons who are not board-certified plastic surgeons have been performing this procedure. Dr. Salzman is a board-certified plastic surgeon and an Assistant Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery at the University of Louisville. He not only performs the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure in a very particular manner (using ultrasound guidance), but he teaches other plastic surgeons how to perform this surgery safely and artistically. He has dedicated his career to his patients’ safety and satisfaction. The safety of this procedure is elevated with the knowledge of how much fat can be safely removed, where fat can be injected into the buttocks, how deep, and how much fat can be safely deposited.
Possible Side Effects To Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
The most common side effects of this procedure are bruising, swelling, and soreness. We provide patients with clear, details post-operative instructions to care for their transferred fat, incisions, and harvest area so more serious complications can be avoided.
