What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks, providing a fuller and more sculpted appearance. Unlike traditional butt augmentation methods, BBL utilizes the patient’s fat through liposuction, offering a natural and harmonious result.

The benefit of a BBL is that it can shape multiple parts of your body at once. While it can increase your buttocks’ size, it can also decrease the size of the area where the fat comes from. This can help shape your figure into the look you want, making it a highly sought-after procedure.

Is BBL Right for You?

We understand that feeling confident about your body is essential to your quality of life. And a BBL can help many patients reach that goal. Still, some factors can determine if this procedure is right for you.

  • The Right BMI: The optimal BMI for a BBL is around 32 or slightly higher. While you should be close to your goal weight, there will need to be enough fat on your body to remove and reinject.
  • Tired of Sagging: Aging, pregnancy, and weight fluctuation can decrease the volume and perkiness of your buttocks. If gravity has impacted the look of your behind, a lift can help.
  • Want to Balance Body Proportions: For women with a thicker waist, a lift can even out your curves. Some women also notice that as they age, their hips begin to dip. This dip can be filled in with a fat transfer making your curves more rounded.
  • Be in Good Health: You need to be in good overall health. This includes a healthy diet and exercise, low alcohol use, and no smoking at least one month before and after surgery. The better your health, the better your results will be.

Getting Ready

Before the procedure, you will need to attend your preoperative visit. This will help prepare you for the following:

  • How to get ready for surgery
  • What will happen during surgery
  • How to prepare for your recovery

The procedure typically takes a few hours, and Dr. Linville is with you every step. His goal with each procedure is to deliver stunning results in a comfortable environment.

To prepare, you will need to eat healthily and exercise regularly. Unless Dr. Linville advises, you do not need to lose or gain weight through exercise. It is merely a preparation to be sure that your body is in good health before surgery. You will need to abstain from tobacco use at least one month before surgery.


Liposuction Process

The first step involves liposuction to harvest excess fat from areas like the abdomen, thighs, or flanks. This sculpts other areas and provides the necessary fat for the augmentation process.

Fat Purification Techniques

The extracted fat undergoes a purification process to remove impurities, ensuring only the healthiest fat cells are used for the injection.

Injection Process

The purified fat is strategically injected into the buttocks, sculpting and enhancing the natural curves. The surgeon’s skill in precise fat placement is crucial for achieving balanced and natural-looking results.

As an outpatient procedure, you can return home the same day. Still, you must attend follow-up appointments with Dr. Linville to ensure you are healing correctly. For the first two weeks, you will want to focus on resting. Avoid sleeping on your back or sitting on your buttocks for at least two weeks after surgery. Even after this time, we advise keeping pressure to a minimum for your buttocks.

You will experience some swelling and bruising, but this is entirely normal. With prescribed mediation, you can manage these easily enough. You will also receive a special pillow to help with this for the first couple of weeks. Dr. Linville and his staff strive to make the recovery process as comfortable and convenient as possible.

Since your BBL involves liposuction, you will also be recovering from that. We advise that you not exercise or lift anything for at least two to three weeks after surgery. You will also need to wear a compression garment to help with swelling. After two to three weeks, most patients can start light exercise and moderate lifting. If everything is healing as expected, you should completely return to normal within six weeks. At that point, you can begin more intense exercising and return to your full daily routine.


It’s important to remember that the initial volume will go down after the first two months. The fat cells need time to stabilize. Once the swelling goes down, you can see your actual results. Sometimes, Dr. Linville will suggest a second procedure if much fat needs to be transferred to meet your goals. However, most patients are usually fine with just one. Still, we recommend patience, as the results are the most accurate after two months.

Having full and well-shaped buttocks can be a powerful way for a man to enhance his appearance as well. We proudly provide tailored male BBL procedure options at Linville Plastic Surgery. The procedure works on the same core principle as a traditional BBL: we use liposuction to remove fat, contour one part of the body, and then relocate that fat to the buttocks.
However, we focus on preserving a distinctly masculine shape to the buttons for the male BBL. In most cases, this means enhancing the volume of the buttocks without adding too much roundness. The shape aims to preserve the masculine shape of how the buttock region blends with the thighs and the lower torso. In many cases, it can deliver a more athletic appearance and a sculpted butt contour.

However, we work with each patient on an individual basis to understand what their personal aesthetic preference is. Everybody is unique in shape and features, and we enjoy working with patients to build upon their distinct features for natural-looking results that synchronize with their physical ideals.
