Brazilian Butt Lift
What is Brazilian Butt Lift?
Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as Liposuction with fat transfer or Lipo with fat transfer is an aesthetic surgery that allows you to increase the buttocks while modeling the silhouette.
This technique consists of two steps:
- First, the surgeon performs a traditional Liposuction to extract the fat located in areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, or thighs. This fat is subjected to an optimization process to purify it.
- Then the surgeon redistributes it in the buttocks by injections, achieving the molding and increase in volume desired by the patient.
Lipo with fat transfer is one of the most demanded procedures today and one of the most requested in My Cosmetic Surgery Miami.
Our surgeons have perfected their techniques to perform the best curves in Miami and throughout South Florida

Brazilian Butt Lift | Consultation process
The consultation is the ideal place for doctor / patient communication. The surgeon will advise you throughout the process and plan the surgery taking into account your anatomy and expectations.
The patient will receive recommendations related to what they should and should not do before the procedure, such as quitting smoking one month before the day of the intervention.
A series of laboratory tests should also be performed so that the medical team can check your general health. It is important to follow medical instructions to ensure the success of the surgery.
In the case of patients who live outside of Miami or who, for some reason, cannot go to the clinic to begin the process, they can start it through our Surgery Coordinators who will ask patients for some photos of the area to be treated with.
The purpose of being able to determine such important issues as the type of procedure, the estimated price, and the general guidelines that must be taken into account before performing the surgery.
Many of our patients are unaware of how photographs should be taken for distance evaluation. These vary according to the type of procedure to be performed. To help our patients make the process easier, we give you an example of how personal photos should be in order to be evaluated for a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure in Miami.
Brazilian Butt Lift | Technique and protocol
Once the day of surgery has arrived, the patient will be taken to our classrooms where he will be assisted and advised by a whole team of qualiﬁed professionals.
The buttock augmentation is performed under general anesthesia for the comfort of the patient and the surgeon. The BBL procedure begins with liposuction.
The doctor will make incisions in the areas chosen to introduce the cannula, through which the fat will be sucked. Once obtained, it will go through the optimization process until it is ready to be redistributed to the buttocks.

To this end, the surgeon will make incisions to introduce the optimized fat, also with the help of a cannula, while shaping the buttocks to achieve the desired result.
Fat transfer is a minimally accessible intervention, so it does not leave signiﬁcant scars only the small incisions necessary for the introduction of the cannula, which will not be visible after a few days.
Brazilian Butt Lift | Incision methods
The buttock augmentation by fat transfer does not require noticeable incisions since liposuction only requires the introduction of a cannula and the fat transfer is done with injections using a thin and more ﬂexible cannula.
Even some surgeons choose not to suture the small openings that in most cases close themselves after a few days.
Brazilian Butt Lift | Recovery and postoperative care
The Brazilian Butt Lift Miami does not require hospitalization, so when the patient recovers from anesthesia, they can return home.
It is very important to follow medical recommendations at all times for a quick and successful recovery.
It is important to prepare the place for rest in advance in order to ﬁnd everything ready once the rest is required.
Smoking is not recommended (for one month before and one after surgery) as this practice causes recovery risks.
Anticoagulant medications are also discouraged to avoid bleeding risks.

The patient must refrain from sitting for 15 days and should sleep chest down during those ﬁrst 15 days. Between 15 and 30 days, you can sit using a special cushion.
Another crucially important element during the BBL recovery process is the use of the compression belt, which must be used full time during the ﬁrst month, 12 hours a day during the second month, and 4 hours a day the third month.
The medical staff will advise you at all times and give you the necessary instructions.
The ﬁrst medical follow-up appointment will take place 24 hours after the surgery, which will be structured every 7 days until the doctor assesses the discharge.

Buttock augmentation surgery with implants and fat transfer to the buttocks are two different procedures.
While the fat transfer to the buttocks requires that the patient has localized fat deposits to remove it and then redistribute it in the placement of implants does not require the patient to have localized fat.
On the other hand, the placement of implants in the buttocks increases only that part of the body while the transfer of fat not only increases the volume of the buttocks but also shapes the entire silhouette, simultaneously, for perfect curves.
