1. What is needed to qualify to undergo BBL?

     Must have fat on the tummy or thighs for harvesting.

2. How long is the procedure (Brazilian butt lifting)?

     Usually 3-4 hours for BBL. Includes harvesting of fat and liposuction for waist for shaping.

3. How small are the incisions?

     As small as 0.5cm

4. How long is the down time?

     Recovery is fast for Brazilian butt lifting. Usually 2-3 days. You are not allowed to sit on your butt for just 1-2 weeks after surgery compared to 4-8 weeks with implants.

5. Can I add more fat to my butt?

     Yes after 6-12 months. In this case, we might harvest from another site like the thighs.

6. What is the usual volume the butt can increase in size?

     Between 100-400cc per butt.

7. What is a typical after-surgery instruction for BBL?

     No diet, eat well to nourish the fats after surgery for the first 1-2 months.

8. Can I lie on my back or sit on my butt after the procedure?

     Unlike implant butt augmentation where patients' are restricted from sitting on their butt or lying on their back for 4-8 weeks, in BBL you have a shorter restriction of only 1 week.

9. Is it true that there will be shrinkage of the transferred fat after BBL?

     Shrinkage of the butt weeks after surgery could be secondary to the resolution of post-operative swelling. Although many literatures report that fat shrinkage (of the transferred fat) could go as high as 40-60%, our experience is way below this figure. We attribute our high percentage fat survival to our superior intra-operative handling of fat and better after-surgery care/nstructions.

Buttocks augmentation with fat

Buttocks fat transfer/GRAFTING





     Brazilian butt lifting (BBL) is a cosmetic plastic surgical procedure to augment/enhance or increase the size of the buttocks using the patient's own fat (autologous) instead of the conventional silicone implants.

     Fats are harvested from another body site (typically from the tummy and flanks) using low pressure syringe liposuction to preserve the viability of the fats.

     BBL has better outcome than butt implant surgery because it also involves removal of the fats in the flanks and lower back (waist) with lipo-contouring. In our centre, we contour the areas using a specialize liposuction device called "Power-Assisted Liposuction or PAL (MicroAire)". PAL gives you less bleeding during the procedure, better contouring outcome and shorter downtime (faster recovery). BBL makes the body more curvaceous because of the combined smaller waist and bigger buttocks. That is why BBL is also called "3D Buttocks Lift".


1. Less invasive procedure via smaller incisions.

2. Shorter recovery period or short downtime.

3. No implant or foreign body reaction because of the use of your own natural fats.

4. Cheaper by 25-40%

5. Better results.
