Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a procedure involving fat transfer via liposuction from areas such as the abdominal region, the flanks, inner and outer thighs and the lower back (and anywhere else deemed suitable by the surgeon based on the individual patient) and then injected into the buttock to add volume, reshape and contour according to the desired outcome.

The limit to the amount of fat you can put into each buttock depends on how much can be sourced from the patient during the liposuction. Generally, between 200 and 400cc’s of pure fat in each buttock is commonly agreed as a popular amount as any more than that you can be at risk of compromising the body’s ability to make a new blood supply leading to a larger percentage of fat dying, or lumpiness or hardness in the buttock.

The whole BBL procedure takes around 3 hours, depending on where and how many places liposuction is required to get the required amount of fat. Once the fat is sourced from the patient, it is then prepared, transferred into syringes and then reinjected into the buttocks.

Recovery involves patients sleeping on their front or side (without placing pressure on the buttock area) for the first 4 – 6 weeks so the transferred fat can find a new blood supply and survive. You also need to adjust your sitting position in order not to put pressure on your buttock region.

As with any liposuction, for 1 – 2 weeks after the procedure you may be a little bruised and sore. There is also a chance that because not all the fat survives, a revision procedure may need to be done at six or twelve months to balance the aesthetic outcome.

Dr Kourosh Tavakoli BBL Dr Kourosh Tavakoli on the Brazilian Butt Lift July 28, 2017 - Dr Kourosh Tavakoli: What is the recovery time with BBL? The recovery time for butt lift is actually reasonably quick so what you’ve got to think about the Brazilian Butt Lift or augmentation using fat is it’s like major liposuction. That’s what all it is, and inserting fat into the buttock hurts a little bit but the most of the ache and recovery comes from all body liposuction because you gotta get enough reservoir of fat to inject into the butt because you gotta lose some of it so then you end up reshaping the whole body, so patients receiving essentially a whole body liposuction. Do you use implants with BBL or only Fat Transfer? Not when it comes to buttock … I don’t … And my training and when I started in practise I did a few of them and there were a lot of issues with the body implants I find, except breasts … Obviously, I do a lot of them and it works well. But in particular, in the lower body, I wasn’t very comfortable with the use of implants. Why do BBL patients have their implants removed? So basically the biggest problems with that surgery of […]
Brazilian Butt Lift Dr Scott Turner on the Brazilian Butt Lift December 7, 2016 - Trish Hammond: Great, well we’re here today with Dr Scott Turner. Dr Scott Turner is a specialist plastic surgeon who does cosmetic surgery as well, and he’s located in Dee Why, a little bit in Leichardt, and also in Newcastle. Thank you so much for joining us today, Dr Turner. Dr Scott Turner: It’s a pleasure. Trish Hammond: Lovely. We’re going to have a bit of a chat about the latest trending surgery, I suppose for lack of a better word, which is the Brazilian Butt Lift. Can you tell us a little bit about it, who’s, why is this so popular? Dr Scott Turner: I think it’s just social media. There’s a lot of people now seeing people like the Kardashian’s and looking at different sort of body shapes, and they’re becoming more fashionable. I think the issue of buttock augmentation in the past has been implants, they’ve had a high complication rate. They weren’t looked on favourably. Now with improvement in fat grafting becoming much more successful and with less problems, that this is happening now that we can perform and people get a great outcome. Trish Hammond: Yeah, sure. Dr Scott Turner: Without complications. Trish Hammond: Alright, […]
Are you body ready for summer? Are You Body Ready for Summer? October 8, 2015 - Living in Oz, it’s that time of year again; where the warmer weather is descending upon us in what seems so suddenly. Much of the country has experienced a bit of a heat wave in the last few days and it is only expected to continue through the summer months. It is definitely that time of the year when we start thinking about swimming and heading to the beach (or the pool) to keep cool, and of course with this comes the exposure of skin in swimmers and bikinis (or nothing for the brave)! The last thing we want is to feel uncomfortable in our bodies or be covering up at this time of the year. If you’re like me you’re always dreaming of changing the parts of your body that you’ve always been unhappy with. Well, I say there is no time like the present! We spoke to Dr Charles Cope from Infinity Skin Clinic located in three different practices around Sydney and the Central Coast about what procedures he is seeing clients for in the lead up to the summer months. There are a few procedures that have really cemented their place as popular cosmetic surgeries. Buttock Lift […]

Eva Tragic Death – Let’s Help Bring Eva Home March 26, 2015 - The tragic death of the beautiful Eva Sarmonikas during a butt augmentation surgery has brought back to light the risks of any surgery, whether it be plastic surgery or otherwise. The terrible hurdles of this particular situation are that Eva’s family are now struggling to bring her body home due to both financial issues and diplomatic red tape. The reality is that people die in surgery around the world every day. This particular case is gaining a lot of media attention due to the fact that it involves a beautiful young lady and a butt augmentation. Plastic surgery is gaining more acceptance and popularity in society. It is becoming more mainstream and we are seeing more and more people go under the knife in the name of beauty every year. We are seeing all sorts of new trends when it comes to what people are asking for when it comes to enhancing their features and people are going to more risky and involved lengths to achieve it. Plastic surgery can be life changing for so many. It can give you a new lease on life and can be the best thing you ever did. It certainly was for me. But […]
Let’s talk buttock augmentation with Dr Patrick Briggs November 21, 2014 - This is a relatively new procedure and has really come about because of its popularity in South America and the beach-going culture. But it’s caught on in Australia as well, and I’m seeing lots of patients coming forward for buttock augmentation. It’s a relatively straightforward procedure, with a hidden incision between the buttock crease, and it’s of extremely good viability and predictability. Of course there are risks, as there are with any surgery, with the most important probably being infection, but we cover this with routine antibiotics at the time of surgery and for some days afterwards. There are other ways to improve the size and shape of the buttocks with fat transfer, but this is a little less predictable than the buttock implants, and while it is possible, it may not be as long living as buttock implants. So if you want to talk about this procedure and hear more about it, come along and I’ll take you through it in great detail and you can then take away some literature and have a think about whether this operation is for you.

Maria's Buttock Augmentation Maria’s Buttock Augmentation November 21, 2014 - Maria had always wanted a more rounded, lifted and smooth bum! She wanted to wear a bikini and feel confident from the behind. Maria had known friends abroad who had buttock augmentations and were really happy. As her 40th birthday came and passed, Maria felt it was just a matter of finding the right time, and surgeon, to have it done. After doing her research Maria found Dr Briggs from WA who could do the intramuscular (Dr Gonzalez method) buttock augmentation surgery she wanted. She wanted saline implants as they are harder than other implants and you don’t have to replace them unless there are complications. Maria found there were not a lot of surgeons who performed this type of buttock augmentation in Australia, so was pleased when she found one who knew what he was talking about, especially one with a great reputation. Maria says the actual surgery ran smoothly and her recovery was great. Although she does say it was not easy – she expected it to be hard, but it was even harder than she expected. Process for recovery Maria tells us about her recovery: “If you lay on your back, you’ll need to have something to […]
Let’s talk Buttock Implants Let’s talk Buttock Implants September 22, 2014 - Australia is in the midst of a keep fit craze. There are gyms on every suburban corner. There are 24-hour gyms. There are hundreds if not thousands of personal trainers in every major city. Coinciding with this phenomenon is the increase in cosmetic surgery. Whilst breast augmentation has been the mainstay for most women for many many years there are other surgeries that are becoming commonplace and being sought after.

I'm So Happy With My Butt Implants! – Mel* I’m So Happy With My Butt Implants! – Mel* August 22, 2014 - “Gluteal Augmentation by Dr. Patrick Briggs.” Trend-spotters attribute celebrities like Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Nikki Minaj for the rising number of women across the world seeking butt implants. But Mel* says she wasn’t trying to look like anyone else when she recently underwent gluteal augmentation. “I’m 41 and I just got to a stage where the rest of my body was in really good shape but my butt was really flat,” she says. “And you can’t really ‘puff out’ your butt.” After standing in the mirror and physically lifting her butt cheeks and wishing they ‘looked like that,’ Mel decided to investigate cosmetic surgery. She says she meticulously researched the procedure and thought seriously about travelling overseas. “Originally, I was looking at going to Thailand because of the price,” she says. “Then I started looking at doctors’ websites and what style of implants they used. “I also visited a lot of forums and asked questions of other girls and what they had done.” As a resident of Western Australia, Mel also decided she should investigate local options which led her to Subiaco-based surgeon Dr Patrick Briggs. Mel says the face-to-face meeting with Dr Briggs was what convinced her to choose […]

Butt Surgery – a growing trend Butt Surgery – a growing trend February 28, 2014 - According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, butt surgery, specifically buttock augmentation or Brazilian butt lift, was so in demand in 2013 that about 10,000 buttock augmentation procedures were performed by Plastic Surgeons in the US. And since the beginning of 2014, statistics show a 58 percent increase in demand for this procedure. The need for this came mostly from women, especially celebrities. But it is not only women who request butt surgery, some men do too. In Australia, there has also been an increase in demand for butt surgery. Dr. Ashley Granot, a cosmetic surgeon from the Me Clinic, told ninemsn that he gets enquiries about it at least every week or two. He also recalls that just 5 years ago, he did not receive any requests for butt surgery. According to Dr. Granot, US Hollywood celebrities are the main clients and that has resulted in the increase in demand for butt surgeries in US surgery clinics, which eventually influenced the demand for butt surgery in Australia. Butt surgery has also increased in demand in some other countries. Here are the latest statistics showing the most popular countries seeking a buttock lift: Argentina – 75% Czech Republic – […]
