Rancho Cucamonga Brazilian Butt Lift

Techniques to subtly improve fullness for gorgeous, natural proportions

A shapely derrière never goes out of style, but nature sometimes doesn’t get the memo—and for those who weren’t graced with a naturally proportional bottom, there’s only so much squats can do.

Buttock augmentation, including with the Brazilian butt lift (BBL for short), has been growing in popularity over the last few years—for good reason. Whether your desired outcome is totally natural, gorgeously dramatic, or somewhere in between, a skilled cosmetic surgeon can give you higher, rounder, or larger buttocks and a shapelier figure through a fully customized technique.

  • Enhanced Buttock Volume and Shape: The primary benefit is an increase in the size and improvement in the shape of the buttocks, giving a more rounded and fuller appearance.
  • Natural-Looking Results: Since the procedure uses the patient’s own fat, the results often look and feel more natural compared to buttock implants.
  • Body Contouring with Liposuction: Fat is harvested from other areas of the body (like the abdomen, hips, or thighs) through liposuction, providing the added benefit of reducing unwanted fat in these areas.
  • Improved Body Proportions: By reshaping the buttock area and reducing fat in targeted areas, a BBL can enhance overall body proportions and silhouette.
  • Reduced Risk of Rejection: As the procedure uses the patient’s own fat, there is a lower risk of rejection or allergic reactions compared to synthetic implants.
  • Customizable Procedure: The amount and placement of fat can be tailored to meet individual aesthetic goals, offering a high degree of customization.
  • Minimal Scarring: Since fat transfer is done with injections, there is minimal scarring compared to procedures that require larger incisions.
  • Long-Lasting Results: While some of the transferred fat may be reabsorbed, a significant portion remains, offering long-lasting results.
  • Autologous Fat Transfer: The process of transferring a patient’s own fat from one body area to another, key to the BBL procedure.
  • Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL): A cosmetic surgery that enhances the buttocks’ size and shape using fat grafting from the patient’s own body.
  • Buttock Augmentation: The enhancement of the buttocks’ size and shape; BBL achieves this through autologous fat transfer.
  • Compression Garment: A tight-fitting garment worn by patients after procedures like BBL to reduce swelling and support the healing tissues.
  • Fat Grafting: The process of extracting fat from one part of the body and reinjecting it into another, a central technique in BBL.
  • General Anesthesia: A type of anesthesia used in surgeries like BBL to render a patient unconscious and pain-free during the procedure.
  • Incisions: Small surgical cuts made during procedures; in BBL, incisions are made for liposuction and for fat re-injection.
  • Liposuction: A surgical technique to remove fat from specific body areas, used in BBL to harvest fat for buttock augmentation.
  • Recovery Time: The period necessary for healing after a surgery like BBL, during which patients may need to follow specific postoperative care guidelines.
  • Seroma: A collection of fluid that can accumulate in the body following surgical procedures such as BBL.
  • Subcutaneous Fat: The layer of fat located just beneath the skin, targeted during liposuction and used in the fat grafting process of BBL.

What can buttock enhancement do for me?

In the hands of an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Haiavy or Dr. Tower, buttock augmentation, or gluteoplasty, can improve the proportions of your body and correct common concerns like:

  • Naturally flat appearance
  • Volume loss over time
  • Sagging or loose skin from aging or weight loss
  • Lack of a round, attractive shape

A Brazilian butt lift or buttock implant procedure will increase fullness and projection, though our cosmetic surgeons often combine these techniques with liposuction to further enhance the contour of the back, buttocks, and thighs.

To undergo buttock augmentation, you should be a healthy non-smoker at a stable body weight with realistic expectations for the outcome of your surgery.

What is Brazilian butt lift surgery?

In recent years, Brazilian butt lifts have gotten a lot of attention because they allow you to both slim down a trouble area like your back, bra rolls, or tummy as well as add volume and shape to the buttocks. That’s because your cosmetic surgeon uses fat harvested from other areas of your body and then carefully injects it into the buttocks, adding volume and shape.

During a Brazilian butt lift, your cosmetic surgeon will use liposuction techniques to remove excess fat from a harvest site on your body, often the abdomen, thighs or flanks, taking care to follow the natural curves of your body and sculpt a beautiful result.

The fat removed will then be purified by a special process, separating fat cells from other materials with minimal damage. This purified fat is then meticulously injected in a fan-like pattern under the skin of your buttocks. Your cosmetic surgeon may also massage the area to ensure proper contour.

It’s important to note that good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift must have enough fat to harvest to create a good result. During your consultation, your surgeon will help you explore your options and determine if this type of buttock enhancement is the right fit for you.

Achieving a natural, subtle enhancement with the Brazilian butt lift

Increasingly, the Brazilian butt lift is the procedure of choice for women looking to boost their confidence by reversing the effects of aging and/or weight loss—or simply by achieving better proportions. In other words, not all BBL patients aim for an unnaturally full derrière! We are happy to provide a subtle, natural-looking buttock augmentation with BBL.

When we meet with you in your personal cosmetic surgery consultation, we will ask you about your goals for your body. Using wish pics and/or before and after photos of previous patients, we will come to an understanding of your goals, and discuss your procedure options to accomplish the results that will make you look and feel your very best, ensuring your experience is customized from start to finish.

Are butt implants right for me?

For patients who don’t have enough fat for a Brazilian butt lift, or who prefer a more dramatic transformation, our cosmetic surgeons may recommend having butt implants placed. This procedure is more involved and requires a longer recovery than a Brazilian butt lift, but it can provide a greater volume boost.

During butt implant surgery, a silicone gel implant is inserted beneath the gluteus maximus muscle through incisions made by your cosmetic surgeon. This placement allows for a fuller projection than some Brazilian butt lift procedures might. After buttock augmentation with an implant, it may take several months before you feel completely comfortable with the implant.

Recovering from buttock augmentation

After your buttock enhancement surgery, you will need to avoid exercise and increased activity for about three weeks, possibly longer with a butt implant. You will wear a compression garment, which aids in healing and ensures proper contour. Some swelling and discomfort is normal and expected and may be managed with medication. Your surgeon will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to promote your health and a beautiful surgical outcome.

For some of our patients we may recommend our post-surgery lymphatic drainage massage therapy treatments performed by our licensed massage therapist. This unique type of massage can help minimize post-surgery swelling and support a healthy recovery.
