Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Right for You?

If you’re interested in boosting the appearance of your buttocks without implants, you may be curious about a Brazilian butt lift or BBL. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Altamira is highly regarded for his hands-on care and meticulous approach to BBL procedures at our plastic surgery offices in Houston and Sugar Land, TX. Here, we’ll look at what a BBL entails and who is a good candidate for the procedure.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a fat transfer procedure, meaning that fat from one area of the body is transferred to another. Generally, excess fat is taken from the lower stomach or the flanks, purified, and injected into the buttock area. Typically, about half of the injected fat will be reabsorbed by the body, while the other half will remain in the injection area, creating a round, lifted look.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a BBL?

For you to qualify for a Brazilian butt lift, it’s essential to be in good general health. Dr. Altamira will discuss any health conditions that may affect your surgery or the recovery process.

It’s also important that you are a non-smoker or you quit smoking before surgery. Smoking can heighten the risks of complications from your procedure and can disrupt the healing process.

Finally, you must have some fat to move from one area of your body to another. You may not be a good candidate for the procedure if you have deficient body fat levels. Dr. Altamira will talk with you about other potential procedures you may qualify for that could help you get the look you want.
