BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT (BUTTOCK ENHANCEMENT, BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION)
With the recent media spotlight on celebrity posteriors, particularly the voluptuous, rounded backsides of Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian, the demand for Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL, buttock augmentation, buttock enhancement) surgery has increased dramatically. BBL surgery is actually a combination of two procedures, which, when performed together, create the much-coveted perky, pronounced appearance of the buttocks. Buttocks enhancement surgery is an excellent solution for patients seeking to improve the appearance of flat or drooping buttocks, which can result from significant weight loss, genetics, or a loss of skin elasticity and depleted tissue volume that occurs naturally with age.
The initial phase of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves the harvesting of fat from a donor site on the patient’s own body (traditionally the abdomen or upper hip area). During the latter phase of the procedure, this fat is then purified and re-injected into the buttocks, in order to augment the size of the gluteal region, and to improve its contour, firmness, and proportional balance. An added aesthetic benefit of the BBL surgery is the slimming and toning of problem areas such as the thighs, abdomen, hips and back, as a result of the removal of undesirable fat from these donor sites.

Brazilian Butt Lift surgery requires a unique combination of artistry and surgical precision, and should only be performed by a plastic surgeon with a significant level of experience performing body contouring surgery, such as Dr. Wright Jones, founder of Atlanta-based Muse Plastic Surgery. Dr. Jones is a well-respected plastic surgeon who works tirelessly to provide high quality patient care from the first consultation to the last follow-up visit, and has helped many patients lift, sculpt, and add volume to their gluteal region with buttocks enhancement surgery.
BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY
Your BBL surgery will be performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting, and can take between 2-4 hours, depending upon the complexity and scope of the surgery, and whether or not other body contouring procedures are being performed in conjunction with your BBL. There are two primary surgical techniques Dr. Jones will employ during your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery:
- Tumescent Liposculpturing: during the initial portion of the procedure, Dr. Jones will inject tumescent fluid (a mixture of saline, adrenaline and local anesthetics) into the donor site, which is the area where the fat will be harvested from, and will then use a small cannula to dislodge the fat and suction it out of the body
- Autologous Fat Transfer: the second half of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves the processing and purification of the previously liposuctioned fat, and the careful re-injection of the sterilized fat into the buttock muscle and deep fatty tissue of the gluteal region, thereby giving the buttocks the full, rounded appearance traditionally associated with the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure
After surgery, you will be given a special compression garment, which you will need to wear for approximately two weeks, and you will be advised to avoiding sitting on your buttocks as much as possible for the first month (or to sit on pillows), in order to relieve the pressure on your buttocks during this crucial healing period. Most patients find that they are able to return to work within one week; however, exact recovery times vary depending upon the capacity of each patient’s body to heal itself.
