What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift, often abbreviated as BBL, is a natural way to augment the buttocks using the patient’s own body fat to reshape, resize and recontour the butt. BBL is a surgical procedure with an outcome lasting many years or decades. Dr. Heil’s keen eye combined with his decades of experience create a stunning and very complimentary outcome for each of his BBL patients.

The Brazilian butt lift procedure

In a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Heil will start by taking fat from unwanted locations such as the abdomen thighs, using liposuction and under either local anesthesia with sedation, or under general anesthesia. This produces tiny incisions of about a quarter-inch that heal rapidly and invisibly. That extracted fat is then carefully purified and is injected by a syringe into the butt to add appealing curvature, contour and volume in all the right locations.

Lower Body Lift Combinations

Thigh Lift

The areas of skin around the buttocks and thighs are especially susceptible to drooping as we age, so a thighplasty can be performed as part of a lower body lift to enhance the appearance of the backside.


Pittsburgh Butt augmentation and liposuction are also very useful as part of an all-inclusive lower body lift. These procedures include the tightening of sagging skin and reduction of fat, which results in a firmer posterior.

What is the difference between a Brazilian butt lift and butt implants?

A Brazilian butt lift is the preferred technique for butt augmentation. In the fat transfer used in BBL, the patient’s own body fat is taken from one area and injected in the butt to help reshape and contour it, allowing for a more natural result and lower risk of infection.

Fat transfer allows for contouring of various regions and a very personalized approach and outcome. In patients with inadequate body fat, silicone butt implants can be used to create further enhancement.

What are the benefits of a Brazilian butt lift?

  • Beautifully augmented and enhanced shape and curvature
  • Reduces fat elsewhere when liposuction is used
  • Integrated balance of one’s physical proportions
  • Corrects flat or sagging buttocks and products a perkier derriere

BBL recovery

Following the procedure and throughout recovery, the pain is mild to moderate and can be mitigated with pain medication. Most patients will return to their normal work and activities within a week, but will reduce time spent seated for 2 weeks, sleep on their stomach at night insofar as is possible, and avoid vigorous exercise for 4 weeks. Compression garments will be worn for 6 weeks following the procedure. Slight swelling and bruising are common immediately after the procedure but these diminish rapidly.
