Over the past decade, a full, shapely derriere has become one of the most coveted physical attributes among plastic surgery patients. Although there are muscles in your backside, it’s difficult to tone this area of the body and exercise can only accomplish so much.
Fortunately, advancements in technology and surgical techniques have led to innovative procedures that can help almost anyone achieve the sculpted, prominent rear end they’ve always wanted.

What Is A Butt Lift?
A butt lift is a surgical body contouring procedure designed to achieve more toned and attractive buttocks. Excess skin is removed and the skin that remains is pulled tight to provide a smooth, sculpted contour. Depending on your unique goals and physical characteristics, you may choose to include liposuction in your butt lift procedure to remove unwanted fat and achieve the look you desire.
While a butt lift can very effectively create a more toned appearance, it does not add volume to your buttocks. To achieve a larger, rounder backside, a Brazilian butt lift would be a more appropriate option.
What Is A Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL Surgery?
As large, round backsides have come into fashion, the Brazilian butt lift (BBL surgery) has become one of the most popular body contouring procedures in the country, and for good reason. BBL surgery can provide you with a larger, rounder, shapelier butt without the use of artificial implants. Instead, it utilizes your own fat, harvested through liposuction in other areas of your body where you’d like less fat, to increase the volume and enhance the appearance of your butt.
Where Does the Fat Come From?
Fat can be harvested from nearly any area of the body for a Brazilian butt lift. Popular fat transfer locations include:
- Thighs and hips
- Abdomen and flanks
- Low back
Fat transfer serves the dual purpose of slimming and toning the donor site while helping to add volume and lift to the backside. During your initial consultation, we can discuss which areas of your body may be best for fat collection to help you properly plan for your entire procedure.
Brazilian butt lift surgery may be an ideal way to achieve your aesthetic goals if you:
- Are unhappy with the appearance of your butt
- Feel your butt is too small
- Desire a curvier physique
- Seek a more balanced shape for your frame
- Have buttocks that look square, flat or deflated
Since BBL surgery uses your own fat to create volume, the procedure requires sufficient fat from another part of your body, often from the abdomen or thigh regions. Once the fat is successfully extracted from the targeted area, it is processed to achieve the best quality product which is then placed back into the buttocks using a special cannula.
What Is The Butt Lift Recovery Like?
Due to the highly specialized nature of this procedure, it is critical that you follow your post-operative instructions precisely as prescribed by Altos Oaks Plastic Surgery. While every patient and procedure is unique and recovery periods vary for everyone, it will be important to wear the provided pressure garment for a few weeks and avoid long-term sitting during the early post-operative period.
Results typically appear overcorrected immediately after the Brazilian butt lift procedure, but you should see the final, beautifully sculpted results in a few months.
