A Brazilian butt lift uses a patient’s own fat to sculpt and contour the buttocks, rather than the implants used in a butt implant surgery. Brazilian butt lifts are growing increasingly popular because they allow for a very natural look and a very low chance of complications during or after the procedure. Dr. Mark Youssef of Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa in Santa Monica, California offers patients a way to finally achieve the rounded, youthful, and perky buttocks they’ve always wanted.

Where does fat used for Brazilian butt lifts come from?
Tummy tuck surgery and a Brazilian butt lift are two separate procedures, but are often combined to produce results that many patients desire. We often combine the Brazilian Butt lift and tummy tuck in order to properly contour the whole midsection of the body. Therefore, the front of the abdomen is flat, which enhances the position contour we do to the buttock.
The best candidates for Brazilian butt lift operation have enough extra fat to harvest for the procedure, but aren’t more than 30 pounds over their ideal weight. Patients must be in good general health and must be 18 years or older. Patients who are quite thin or who have a low fat supply may be better candidates for butt implants.
Are You Ready for A Consultation?
Most people plan to take around a week off work following a Brazilian butt lift. BBL patients are often provided with both a compression garment and/or a Brazilian butt lift pillow as they are directed to wear/use for one full month after surgery. Although patients won’t experience major pain or discomfort in the buttocks, they may notice swelling and bruising. Additionally, the liposuction sites may be sore or tender for several weeks.
