Brazilian butt augmentation in NYC is an innovative cosmetic surgical procedure that uses a woman's own fat to enhance the size and shape of her posterior. Popularly known as a Brazilian butt lift (BBL), the procedure provides you with a natural way to achieve curvy, well-shaped, youthful-looking buttocks. At bodySCULPT® in Manhattan, NYC (New York City), we offer BBL under local anesthesia (BBLULA). Invented by our expert surgeons, Dr. Spero Theodorou and Dr. Christopher T. Chia, this novel technique offers all the benefits of BBL under general anesthesia, but without the related risks and complications. By removing fat from problem areas and enhancing the buttocks, it reshapes the entire lower body, with beautiful results. This cosmetic surgical procedure can:

  • Enhance a flat derriere
  • Improve buttock contour and provide a fuller, more youthful look
  • Address a drooping butt
  • Slim the waist and other areas by removing excess fat
  • Improve overall body balance and proportions
  • Make clothes fit more attractively

Brazilian buttock augmentation is an ideal option for women who don't want implants and have sufficient fat for liposuction.

Buttock Enhancement Procedure Steps

Our butt augmentation combines liposuction and fat grafting and is performed as an outpatient procedure. The basic steps involved are as follows:

  • Injecting a local anesthetic in the liposuction sites and buttocks
  • Liposuction to remove fat from the hips, lower back, thighs, abdomen, and/or other areas
  • Purifying and preparing the extracted fat for transfer
  • Injecting the fat injections into specific areas of the buttocks at different depths based on the degree of enhancement required

BBLULA – A Safe and Effective Option

Dr. Theodorou and Dr. Chia are known for their excellent research and publications in body contouring and participate in many international conferences and symposiums. They have extensive expertise in performing liposuction as well as fat transfer procedures and acclaimed for their surgical expertise and result-oriented cosmetic surgery procedures.

Our surgeons pioneered the revolutionary BBLULA which provides all the benefits of traditional BBL without the risks of general anesthesia and accidental incorrect fat placement. As the procedure is performed using local anesthesia, you are awake. Buttock augmentation under local anesthesia is a safe and effective option for patients seeking a moderate buttock enhancement with one or two areas of liposuction.  The procedure comes with benefits such as little or no discomfort, minimal downtime and a significantly shorter recovery time.

Achieve a Sculpted Lower Body

Along with improving buttock size and shape, our BBL procedure improves the proportions of the lower body. Our surgeons achieve this by providing the right balance between fat removal from the waist and other areas, and addition of fat to the buttocks. Liposuction of the waist and love handles as well as the outer thighs highlights the curves and frames the buttocks better. The final result is a sculpted lower body with a beautiful curve or S-shape.
