The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) has emerged as one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States. It allows women to improve the shape and size of the buttocks using their own fat. Women opting to have a Brazilian butt lift in NYC should ensure that the procedure is performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon.
Brazilian butt augmentation is a combination of liposuction and fat grafting and results in youthful, perky, firm buttocks and a more sensual body profile. It is a great option for those who want to avoid the use of implants and are looking for a subtle enhancement than just an increase in volume.
Many women now prefer Brazilian butt augmentation over implants as it can create results that are natural looking. The procedure involves two components – liposuction and fat grafting. The first is fat removal, where advanced liposuction techniques are used to extract the needed fat from the body areas such as the flanks, stomach, and thighs. In second step, the fat tissues are processed and injected into the buttocks to enhance the shape and appearance of the buttocks. A skilled surgeon can shape the back area just under the curvature of the top of the buttocks in such as way that it decreases waist size and improves the projection of the buttocks even before the fat is injected. With no implant- related risks and minimal bruising and other side effects, the procedure offers attractive results in minimal downtime.

Ideal candidates for BBL are those who are in good general health and have enough fat and an appropriate body type to allow sufficient fat harvesting, in order to produce an effective change to the buttocks during fat transfer. Patients should discuss their goals in person at their consultation with the plastic surgeon.
The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and usually requires only 36 hours of recuperation regardless of the day of the week. Final results are usually seen approximately 6 months after the treatment and full recovery depends on how well patients follow their surgeon’s aftercare instructions. Successful surgery will provide you with a perkier and rounder butt and redefine overall body appearance. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important for long-lasting results.
