As with every aspect of society, cosmetic surgery has gone through periodic shifts. At one point in time, perky breasts were the most sought-after feature for women. In recent decades, women are now focusing on ways that they can improve the appearance of their butts.

There are various natural methods that can help women achieve a better aesthetic in the butt, such as squats and other exercises. While these exercise protocols are definitely helpful, factors such as aging and genetics can sometimes be too much for them to overcome. In these cases, patients need to turn to find other ways to achieve their desired results.

A Brazilian Butt Lift in Washington, D.C., also referred to as a BBL, is a popular surgical procedure that allows patients to achieve a rounder, more aesthetically pleasing butt while reducing fat from other areas of the body. While butt implants used to be the go-to method for achieving more fullness in the butt, the BBL has taken its place as the ideal butt enhancement procedure.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves a combination of liposuction and fat transfers to the gluteal region. As the name suggests, this surgical procedure got its name from the women of Brazil, who are well-known for their pronounced curves and contours in the areas of the butt and hips. While many women dream of having this look, they need some extra assistance to get there.

The goal of a BBL is to enhance the butt’s natural curves while simultaneously creating more harmony between the butt and thighs. The fat transfer method used in this treatment elicits results that look more real than butt implants. Beyond that, patients can achieve the same results without having to deal with the extensive downtime associated with butt implant procedures.

The Brazilian Butt Lift is the ideal butt enhancement method for patients who want to see an improvement in their curves and have enough fat in other areas of the body to be transferred. Patients end up with a more pronounced posterior and slimmer hips and thighs, giving them a natural-looking hourglass shape.

Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift

The popular Brazilian butt lift procedure provides a number of outstanding benefits for patients who would like to enhance their curves:

  • A curvier, more feminine physique
  • A more attractive fit in clothing
  • A transformed flat butt into a round, aesthetically pleasing shape
  • Improved balance and proportions of the figure

Who Is A Candidate For A Brazilian Butt Lift?

Patients who are dealing with the following issues are considered to be good candidates for a brazilian butt lift in Washington, D.C.:

  • An ‘unbalanced’ look due to buttocks that are too small compared to other features of the body
  • A ‘flat’ aesthetic in the butt that leaves more to be desired
  • Sagging of the butt, which has resulted from fluctuations in weight or the natural aging process
  • Clothing or swimwear that does not fit properly on the butt

Ideal patients for a BBL have enough fat in other areas of the body for transfer. Patients who are lacking in body fat may need to gain some weight before they can undergo this treatment.

Consultation process

The consultation process involves a review of the patient’s medical history and a physical exam. This allows us to get a better idea of the patient’s current situation and what the best approach for treatment will be. We curate a personalized treatment plan based on the patient’s goals and discuss the benefits, recovery time, and expectations for the results.

How is a Brazilian Butt Lift performed in Bethesda?

During a Brazilian butt lift procedure, fat cells are harvested from areas of the body where they are excessive and not wanted. These areas may include the abdomen, flanks, back, and thighs. Harvested cells are then redistributed to the buttocks, to achieve a beautiful, natural augmentation and contour. The combination of augmentation of the buttocks and liposuction to the surrounding areas truly enhances the contours of all areas.

This procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis with general anesthesia. Typically, we anticipate approximately 50% of the fat cells to survive the transfer. To compensate, we standardly inject slightly more fat into the buttocks than is needed so the final outcome meets the patient’s expectations.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ's

What is the cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The cost of a Brazilian butt lift in Washington, D.C., can vary. During the initial consultation, patients will meet with their surgeon and discuss their needs. The amount of fat needed for the buttocks and the patient's medical history and overall health are factors in the level of difficulty and cost of the surgery.

Is a BBL painful?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is associated more with ‘soreness’ than pain. It is common for patients to experience some soreness in the buttock region throughout the healing process.

Is a BBL permanent?

It is considered a semi-permanent procedure. The fat cells that are injected into the butt will remain for a long time, but fluctuations in fat over time can lead to changes in its appearance.

When will I see results?

Some results will be visible immediately after the procedure. However, final results will not appear until several months after surgery, when the patient is fully healed, and residual swelling has subsided. At this point, their improved body contours and curvier buttocks will be much more noticeable.

How long will my results last?

Results with a Brazilian butt lift are meant to be long-lasting. Once fat cells are removed from areas with excess fat deposits, they are gone forever. Fat cells that survive transfer to the buttocks will remain and continue functioning for years to come. It is important to maintain a stable weight, as significant weight fluctuations can affect the results. Complications are rare but may occur. They may include asymmetry, contour irregularity, or infection.
