Brazilian Butt Lift Enjoy an Alluring Backside

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a figure-enhancing surgery that uses liposuction to remove fat from one area of your body before it’s redistributed back into the buttock region. This body-shaping surgery is ideal for anyone seeking to correct sagging or asymmetry, or who feels that their natural buttock shape is simply too flat and would prefer a shapelier, more curvaceous figure.

The Ideal Candidate for the BBL

Drs. Burton and Reps Sundin are excited to be offering a wide range of both surgical and non-surgical solutions to a variety of life’s most common cosmetic issues. When you visit our practice for your consultation, your surgeon will get to know your physical characteristics, gain an understanding of your personal goals, and learn about your lifestyle so he can design a surgical plan that works well with all three. You’re likely to be a great candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift if you:

  • Would like a more curvy, shapely rear end
  • Don’t want to use artificial implants
  • Have sufficient fatty tissue in a donor area
  • Are interested in a “two-in-one” procedure
  • Have realistic expectations and proper skin laxity

Your BBL Options

Thanks to the extensive experience and high level of training Drs. Sundin bring to the table, our practice is able to offer a number of Brazilian Butt Lift options. The technique chosen for you will depend on your physical characteristics and personal goals, and Dr. Sundin will help you understand everything you need to know about your upcoming surgery.

Buttocks Fat Graft

Sometimes also referred to as a “gluteal fat grafting” procedure, the fat graft BBL utilizes liposuction to carefully remove unnecessary excess fat from another area of the body, such as the stomach. These fat cells are then purified and prepared before they’re injected into the buttocks, where they add shape and contour, for a more attractive look.

The Petite BBL

The “Petite BBL” is a Brazilian Butt Lift technique that is ideal for more petite patients with slimmer figures. Liposuction will be used to remove fat cells from multiple donor sites, so that an adequate amount can be collected. The results of this procedure tend to be quite noticeable, due to the more petite body silhouette of the patient.

Hip Flip

So-called “hip dips” can be addressed with a procedure known as the hip dip fat graft, wherein fatty tissue is removed from another area via liposuction before it is injected back into the hip area to address the presence of hip dips. This procedure can frequently be performed with local anesthesia, for an enhanced surgical experience.

Your Consultation

During your consultation, you’ll have the chance to ask your surgeon any questions you might have about your upcoming surgery. You’ll talk through the technique that will be used to create your results, and you’ll get an understanding of everything from incision placement to what you can expect from your recovery period.

Our goal is to ensure that you’re completely relaxed and that you enjoy total peace of mind as you make your way through your cosmetic journey with us. We offer our patients a truly elite experience, and our team will be available to you well after your procedure is complete, should you have any further questions.

Your Brazilian Butt Lift Experience

The Brazilian Butt Lift utilizes a small cannula (a thin tube) to remove fat cells from areas of the body with excess fatty tissues, such as the abdomen, thighs, and/or legs. After these fat cells are removed, they are treated and processed, ensuring that only the best are used for injection into the buttock region. In most patients, approximately 25% of harvested fat cells qualify for reinjection. Once the fatty tissue has been purified, it is reinjected into different areas of the buttocks at precisely-planned depths, utilizing an extremely small needle. This method is essential to achieve a smooth, natural, and even appearance of the buttocks. The average injection sees 500 to 600cc of fat injected into each buttock cheek, though patients with a wider distribution of fatty areas may receive 1000cc of fat into each cheek.
