Improve Your Proportions with a BBL Brazilian Butt Lift in Beverly Hills

Dr. Sheila Nazarian takes a very unique approach to Buttock Augmentation. Our V-Sculpt BBL gives you a natural and well-proportioned body. This procedure helps improve shape, lift the buttocks, and help the overall proportions of the body.

BBL Meaning

BBL is short for Brazilian Butt Lift. This procedure involves harvesting stubborn and unwanted fat, via liposuction, from other parts of the body and placing it into the buttocks and hips.

Fat Grafting

Also known as fat transfer and fat injection. Fat is utilized in areas needing volume-enhancement, most commonly the face, breasts, buttocks, and hands. In certain cases, this is a great way to reduce fat in unwanted areas and increase it in the areas it is wanted most.

Our Brazilian Butt Lift is a permanent and natural-appearing method that exchanges fat from areas of excess to areas that are lacking. Instead of the unnatural look of a butt implant that gives the appearance of a “fake butt,” BBL Surgery provides a full, fit and natural butt lift.

  • Kayo Daily Remodeling Serum

    This multi-functional hydrating serum is instilled with Hyaluronic Acid and Copper Peptides to help enhance the appearance of skin. Skin is saturated with long-lasting deep hydration from Hyaluronic Acid and Kayo’s Omega Oil Blend, while skin is further layered with Kayo’s antioxidant rich Superfruit Blend, leaving skin energized and radiant. Founder's Notes: This body product was modeled after true high impact face serums, with the quintessential lighter feel and texture of a serum, perfect for layering based on your unique skin type and needs. Moisture is primarily delivered through Hyaluronic Acid (think deep water hydration) rather than topical oil hydration. This product can be used by itself for normal to oily skin, but is recommended under other Kayo products, such as The Body Beautiful Crème or Kayo's Cellular Repair Evening Oil for skin that needs deeper oil based hydration. When layering Kayo's body products use the same technique you would with face products - lighter products like serums first, heavier products like lotions and oils after.

BBL Procedure Technique

At Nazarian Plastic Surgery, all of our techniques are cutting edge and proven to get natural results that our patients love! Our Brazilian Butt Lift is no different. Your fat grafting to the buttocks procedure is performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgery center as an outpatient procedure. The first phase of the procedure involves using liposuction to remove fat cells. Later in the procedure, these fat cells are injected carefully into just the right areas needed to give you the best possible results.

How is fat transferred for a BBL?

Fat grafting normally entails collecting excess fat from one area of the body, rinsing it, and subsequently meticulously re-injecting it with specifically created cannulas into areas that would look better with more volume.

Is fat transfer permanent?

We expect only 50%-70% of the fat injected to be viable so over-injection is performed initially to achieve the desired final result. With this being said, if someone has a limited amount of fat, Sculptra injections can be performed 3-6 months after surgery to achieve the desired look. If you have plenty of fat elsewhere to donate to the buttocks, this will not be something you would need to do.

What if I don't have enough fat for a BBL?

Implicit in fat transfer is that we need fat in other areas of the body to harvest from. For example, body builders with very little body fat would not be candidates for fat transfer since they do not have fat in other areas of their body to donate to the fat-depleted area. Sculptra injections may be a good alternative for them.

Preparing for a BBL Procedure

The preparation for this procedure is not much different than liposuction and many other outpatient procedures. It is best to avoid smoking and consuming alcohol for a few weeks before and after the procedure. You should also stop all Aspirin, Advil, Motrin and other blood thinners, such as Vitamin E and herbal supplements.

After the Procedure

If large areas of liposuction are being performed, we do require you that you go to an aftercare facility for 2-3 days so that you can be monitored under professional care. This makes the recovery process so much more enjoyable and safe. You can expect to be bruised and swollen after your BBL procedure. Most patients take some type of narcotic for the first 3 days but are typically on just Tylenol by day 4. Dr. Nazarian will place you in a compression garment. It looks a bit like Spanx with zippers and will help the areas where liposuction was performed to heal nice and flat and smooth.  To find out more about a BBL or fat grafting to the buttocks with Dr. Sheila Nazarian at her Beverly Hills office, contact us today or call (310) 773-3039 to schedule a consultation.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Individuals who undergo fat transfer to the buttocks are of all ages. Following the treatment, individuals will have swelling and bruising. The swelling may last for 4-6 weeks. The treated area might appear reddish in color for 48 hours. Frequently, regular routines are usually started again after 2 weeks. Dr. Sheila Nazarian will provide thorough and individualized recovery instructions as well as post-surgical garment and scar therapy options. For the first couple of weeks following your BBL procedure, it is best to limit the amount of pressure that you place on your buttocks. Try not to sit for more than 30 minutes to an hour at one time, and it’s best to sleep on your back or side for the first couple of weeks. If you are having a tummy tuck at the same time, shifting from one side to the other is recommended as you will not be able to sleep on your abdomen. Dr. Nazarian also recommends that her BBL patients get lymphatic massage starting at 2 weeks and continuing for two months. For best results, 2-3 lymphatic massage sessions per week is advised. We are happy to give you a list of our lymphatic masseuse recommendations.
You want to do everything possible to allow the newly grafted fat cells to breath and develop a healthy blood supply. Dr. Nazarian likes her fat grafting to the buttocks patients to stay out of water for 4 weeks to reduce any risk of infection. Once those first 4 weeks pass, however, all restrictions are lifted. You can return to your daily routine, but listen to your body and if something hurts, back off.

Frequently
Asked Questions

Are the results from a BBL permanent?

Yes. Once a fat cell is removed via liposuction, it is gone for good. Also, once that fat cell is placed in the buttocks via fat grafting, it is permanent. However, only a certain number of the fat cells that are injected will “take”. I tell my patients to expect that 70% of their fat graft will live. This is why I always overfill in order to compensate for this fact. It is one of the many reasons why you should see a body contouring expert for your BBL. It is also really important that you be at a weight that you like and that you can maintain. If you gain or lose weight after your BBL procedure, it may adversely affect your results and your butt may deflate.

Should I gain weight before my BBL?

No. I can’t tell you how many patients think that they need to gain weight first. The problem, of course, is that if you come in at a heavier weight and then you lose the weight, your newly plumped-up booty will deflate. I need to be able to assess your body proportion at a weight where you feel good and that you can maintain. This is crucial for long lasting results.

Is fat grafting to the buttocks painful?

The procedure itself is performed under general anesthesia so you won’t feel a thing. Most patients don’t find the recovery to be painful. But you will be sore, especially in the areas where I performed liposuction. The compression garment helps to reduce this discomfort. The biggest drag for my BBL patients is just staying off their buttocks. We are a society that sits a lot so changing these habits can be tough. But it is also better for the body not to sit so much which is why I always tell patients to embrace the first two weeks following surgery and use it as a time to create new, healthier habits. Oh, and catch up on Netflix. 

Is Brazilian Butt Lift safe?

There has been a lot of media attention on safety and the BBL. This is a surgery that is safe as long as you see an experienced body contouring expert. Fat should only be grafted into the subcutaneous layer of fat in the buttocks. The problems occur when the surgeon doesn’t know his or her stuff and injects the fat too deep or tries to inject too much. I am incredibly conservative with my BBL procedures and have encountered no problems.
