A Brazilian Butt Lift is a fat grafting procedure that combines liposuction techniques with fat transfers to target two different concerns that often trouble younger patients.
— Dr. Mark Anton, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon
To begin fat will be harvested from certain areas throughout your body. This is done using liposuction, and popular donor areas include locations that tend to develop stubborn pockets of fat, i.e., the thighs, flanks, and stomach.
Once harvested, the donor fat is purified and prepared for injection. During your consultation for a Brazilian butt lift Newport Beach plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Anton will discuss where the injections will be administered, so you can ensure the results are proportionate, flatter, and natural-looking.
The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia, although local numbing techniques may be used for smaller areas. Your surgeon will make small incisions for liposuction and injection, and they will be closed with stitches or sutures. A compression garment may also be applied to reduce bleeding and encourage rapid healing.

Ideal candidates for a Brazilian butt lift include patients who are in good general health and stable body weight. The procedure is recommended for adults who are unhappy with the current shape or volume of their buttocks and wish to enhance it without plastic surgery. A Brazilian butt lift is an excellent option for patients who:
Cosmetic body contouring procedures are an excellent approach to achieving a flattering, sculpted body. Patients who feel self-conscious about certain areas of their body; their buttocks, or midsection, can utilize incredible procedures like a Brazilian Butt Lift to help address these common problem areas. Using different cosmetic surgery techniques, a qualified surgeon can trim away excess skin, unwanted fat, and recontour the silhouette.
As we age, our bodies tend to lose their tight and toned appearance. Weight fluctuations, hormonal shifts, pregnancy, childbirth, and lifestyle changes can all have an impact on the way we look and feel. In particular, some patients find they don’t feel comfortable in certain clothing or during intimate moments. The BBL procedure is a versatile one, so it can be customized to suit the various needs of each patient individually.
Benefits of BBL
Our genetics tend to dictate the shape, size, and contours of our bodies. For some patients, this can be a disproportionate appearance. For others, it may be lacking in certain areas; the hips, waist, or in this case, the buttocks.
The way our bodies store fat can vary for everyone, so some patients may experience weight gain in unflattering areas while others struggle to maintain a rounder appearance in others. While diet and exercise can help enhance and sculpt your figure, certain areas — as the buttocks or thighs — may still be petite or deflated.
A Brazilian butt lift helps address these common aesthetic concerns in patients. It can also have lower risks associated with the procedure when compared to implant surgery, plus reduced downtime. Plus, since the procedure calls for liposuction, our Newport Beach Brazilian butt lift patients can target stubborn areas and achieve a slimmer figure and appearance.
The effects of a fat grafting procedure like a Brazilian butt lift are intended to be long-term but are considered semi-permanent, as the body stores fat in various ways, their form can change over time. Typically, a majority of fat transferred during the procedure is retained by patients after the BBL, but it is common for absorption to occur over time. Additionally, fat cells removed during the liposuction treatment will not return, but you can accumulate new fat deposits over time. Maintaining a healthy weight through regular exercise and good eating habits helps extend the life of your results.
“When will I achieve the full results from a BBL?” is a common question. The recovery and healing time for each patient following a BBL will vary according to the extent of treatment, amount of fat harvested, and genetic inclination.
The results of your fat transfer procedure can start to become visible almost immediately after your procedure, however, they may fluctuate throughout the healing process. Because you will likely experience some swelling and inflammation around the treated areas, the final results of your BBL can take months to fully appear. It is not uncommon for some fat grafted into the area to be reabsorbed by the body and discarded. Your surgeon can take this into account and offer techniques to help you achieve your desired results. Generally speaking, patients can expect to achieve their final results at around four to six months after their BBL.
