Brazilian Butt Lift under Local Anesthesia (BBLULA)

Achieve an attractive buttock contour with your own fat with Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC!

A firm and shapely posterior contributes significantly to a gorgeous body structure. Skilled plastic surgeons at our bodySCULPT® practice – Dr. Christopher Chia and Dr. Spero Theodorou are pioneers in providing Brazilian Butt Lift under Local Anesthesia (BBLULA), a safe and effective procedure that enhances your buttocks naturally.

With this procedure that involves liposuction and fat grafting, our surgeons can help you achieve pleasing, natural-looking buttocks with the right projection and shape.

Ideal candidates for the BBLULA procedure should

  • be in good general health, and
  • have enough fat and the appropriate body type to harvest enough fat


Brazilian Butt Lift surgery uses the patient’s own natural fat tissues to enhance the butt. For liposuction, our NYC plastic surgeons use FDA-approved energy assisted devices, mainly VASER to break up fat selectively, while preserving other structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue.

Brazilian Butt Surgery involves

  • Harvesting fat carefully from areas of excess fat and purifying it
  • Using local anesthesia to numb the buttocks, while the patient is awake
  • Transferring the purified fat using the latest techniques to the buttocks to enhance their structure

Typical areas of fat harvesting include the sides which are the axilla or armpit, the mid back or bra rolls, flanks or love handles as well as the outer thighs, inner thighs, and abdomen.

Performed under local anesthesia, this procedure can minimize anesthesia-related side effects as well as downtime. You can enjoy faster recovery time and gain the benefits of Brazilian butt surgery in NYC without the risks of general anesthesia. However, the area of liposuction and the amount of fat that is injected to the buttocks is limited when compared to that when done under general anesthesia.

However, to maximize the survivability of the graft take, you are advised to minimize the amount of pressure when sitting or the time spent sitting. Once it settles and matures over time, the fat will last several years or longer.
