Fat Transfer to Buttocks

Also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), fat transfer to the buttocks enhances the size and shape of your buttocks using your own fat. It is designed to provide women with a fuller, shapelier, and rounder derriere without implants.

A leading AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice, bodySCULPT® provides fat transfer to buttocks in NYC. Our plastic surgeons, Dr. Christopher Chia and Dr. Spero Theodorou, are experts in performing this cosmetic buttock augmentation procedure. Our transformative fat grafting treatment provides attractive, natural-looking outcomes.

Our plastic surgeons are the inventors of the revolutionary Brazilian Butt Lift Under Local Anesthesia (BBLULA), an alternative to conventional BBL under general anesthesia. Patients remain awake throughout this relatively short natural buttocks enhancement procedure, heal faster, and get back quickly to their normal routine.

How Brazilian Butt Lift NYC is Performed

The first step in this fat transfer procedure is liposuction to remove unwanted fat from areas of the body where it is available in excess, such as the abdomen, flanks and thighs. Our plastic surgeons utilize liposuction devices to remove fat from the donor sites.

The extracted fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks to achieve the desired outcomes. The fat injections will be placed in different areas and depths into the buttocks to provide the desired enhancement.

We have the best fat transfer surgeons in NYC. They have extensive experience in performing the procedure safely while paying attention to symmetry and proportion. Our skilled surgeons focus on achieving the right balance between fat removal from the waist and love handles, and fat addition to the buttocks. The final result is a sculpted lower body with a beautiful S-shape.

Am I a good candidate for fat transfer to buttocks?

Generally, ideal candidates for buttocks contouring with fat are those desire a fuller, rounder posterior and have excess fat in areas like abdomen or thighs. To determine your eligibility, schedule a consultation with our plastic surgeon.

How long is the recovery period?

While individual recovery time varies, most patients can resume light activities within a week. Strenuous activities should be avoided for a few weeks.

Is the procedure safe?

When performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon, BBL surgery in NYC is generally safe. At our AAAASF-accredited practice, we prioritize patient safety and adhere to the highest medical standards.

How long do results last?

While not all of the fat transferred into the buttocks will survive the plastic surgery long term, enough will still remain to make significant difference and help patients achieve their desired BBL results. Our surgeons use techniques that maximize fat graft survival rates.

Can I combine fat transfer with other procedures?

Yes, our surgeons can combine BBL with other procedures such as a tummy tuck. This combination procedure involves removing excess skin from the abdomen and tightening the abdominal muscles while adding volume and shape to your buttocks. This can enhance your overall appearance.

Will the results look natural?

The procedure provides natural-looking enhancement as it utilizes your body’s own fat. Our surgeon will evaluate your anatomical considerations and create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the best outcomes.
