If you find yourself wishing your butt had a little more shape, you’re not alone. Genetics are one of the key factors in your butt’s size, projection, and overall look, meaning it can be defeating trying to achieve your goals through squats alone. For good reason, the Brazilian butt lift (BBL) has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures of the last few years, and there are many reasons to consider this option. As you plan your consultation with Dr. Newman, here are a few benefits of the BBL and how a board-certified plastic surgeon can help.

Why Do People Get a Brazilian Butt Lift?

There are many different things that can determine the way your butt looks, including your skeletal structure and the ways your body tends to store fat. Although it’s possible to achieve some shape, lift, and projection with exercise, many patients are still unhappy with the overall flatness of their butt.

The Brazilian butt lift works by collecting fatty tissue from a different area on the body through liposuction before transferring it to the butt, meaning it comes with the benefit of body contouring for extra results. This makes it one of the best options for achieving an hourglass shape in one procedure.

What Are the Benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift?

There are many benefits to the Brazilian butt lift, including:

  • More defined lower body curves
  • A reduction in stubborn fat in the stomach, hips, or thighs
  • More fullness and projection in the butt
  • Improved clothing fit
  • Improved shape for flat buttocks
  • Enhanced body proportions
  • More pronounced hourglass shape

Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Right for Me?

The Brazilian butt lift is one of the best options for patients looking to enhance their butt without implants. To be considered a good candidate, you should be in overall good health and at a healthy, stable weight (since weight gain or loss can affect your results). Additionally, good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift:

  • Want to enhance their butt without implants
  • Have good skin elasticity and tone
  • Have sufficient fat in other areas for collection
  • Are healthy enough to undergo surgery
  • Are able to take time to recover
  • Are willing and able to avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time

The Brazilian butt lift is not a good option if you have excess, sagging skin in the buttock area (despite being called a “lift” procedure). Your plastic surgeon can recommend your best options if excess skin is a concern.
