Brazilian Butt Lift (Butt Fat Transfer) in Birmingham

If you are looking for a better butt, a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) may be right for you. A BBL can enhance the appearance of your buttocks by adding volume, recontouring your butt, and smoothing out imperfections.


What Can a Brazilian Butt Lift Do for Me?

Increase Your
Butt Volume

A BBL can increase the volume of your buttocks without inserting butt implants.

This added volume is made from your own natural fat cells, resulting in a permanent change.

Contour Your Buttocks Shape

Butt lift surgery using fat enhancement can adjust the shape of your buttocks.

Having better butt contours can help you look your best and increase your self-confidence.

Create More Slender Body Contours

BBL surgery includes body contouring options to remove excess fat from areas you don’t want it. This can help you achieve a more feminine and curvy body shape.

This can help you find more clothing options and make you more comfortable in social situations.

How Is Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Done?


Liposuction treatment is performed under local or general anesthesia depending on the extent of the procedure. In either case, incisions will be made near unwanted fat deposits. Then, a small tube (cannula) will be inserted to extract the excess fat.

If a significant amount of fat needs to be removed and you have skin laxity, you may want a skin tightening procedure after your liposuction at our medspa.

Fat Purification

After your fat is extracted, it is filtered and concentrated. This purifies and refines your fat so that only the best living fat cells are used for the treatment.

This refined fat can be injected back into your body safely without the risk of rejection or allergic reaction.

Fat Grafting

Once your plastic surgeon has purified your fat, they will inject it into the fatty layer of your butt between the skin and muscle. The fat grafts will be performed strategically to create the buttock contours you desire.

Your plastic surgeon will inject more fat than necessary to account for your body reabsorbing variable amounts of excess fat.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery and Results


What Is the Recovery From BBL Like?

You should be able to return to work within one to two weeks. During those first two weeks, you should expect swelling and mild to moderate discomfort in your buttocks.

After two weeks, you will be able to return to work. You should still use a special BBL pillow to keep weight off your buttocks for at least an additional two weeks. You may resume sitting and rigorous exercise six weeks after your procedure.


How Should I Sit After Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?

To preserve your Brazilian Butt Lift results, you should keep weight and pressure off your buttocks as much as possible. Pressure on the butt in the first two weeks can damage your fat cells while they are still settling. This can have negative repercussions on your results.

The best way to preserve your butt enhancement results is to use a special BBL support garment and pillow to support your weight on your thighs rather than your buttocks.


When Will I See Results From My Butt Fat Transfer?

Initial results should be visible within two to six weeks as swelling subsides and your excess fat is reabsorbed.

Final results can take up to six months to become stable as your fat cells settle into place.

Longevity of Results

How Long Will My Results From Brazilian Butt Lift Last?

The good news is that once your fat cells have settled, they will live in your buttocks for the rest of your life. However, significant weight changes, lifestyle changes, or age-related factors may still cause your beneficial BBL results to fade over several decades.
