Brazilian Butt Lift

In Atlanta


Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift has gained huge popularity over the last several years as celebrities like Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Lopez flaunt their derriere. In a “BBL”, or Gluteal Augmentation, liposuction is performed of the abdomen, lower back, and any other needed areas, and then the fat is transferred to the buttock in order to increase the size and give it a protruding, desirable shape.

 This procedure is typically performed for one of two reasons: to increase the size or to improve the shape of the buttock. Women (and men) of different ethnicities have different perceptions of beauty and what they find attractive. Therefore, every patient is going to have a different expectation of what they want their buttock to look like. Some may want a larger backside, while others may want to keep their booty the same size but improve the shape to what they think looks attractive.

A more natural approach

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as BBL, is a popular procedure that involves using your body’s fat to enhance the shape and size of your buttocks. It combines Liposuction and Fat Transfer techniques to remove excess fat from one area of your body and strategically inject it into your buttocks creating a lifted and curvy appearance of the gluteal area. By redistributing your own fat cells, this procedure also improves the overall proportion of your body, providing natural-looking and lasting results.

Non-Surgical Butt Lift

For some patients who are especially trim or lack excess donor body fat for transferring, Non-surgical Butt Lifts are a great option. Non-surgical butt lifts are also ideal for those who prefer a non-surgical option with minimal downtime and no pain.

Non-surgical butt lifts are performed using a combination of injectables: Sculptra and Kybella.

Sculptra is a dermal filler composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a volumizing agent designed to fill volume deficits.

Kybella is a dermal injection composed of deoxycholic acid which breaks down fatty tissues resulting in slimming and sculpting. Kybella is safe, proven, and already in widespread use as a double-chin reduction treatment.

Sculptra and Kybella function in harmony to boost and sculpt the buttock area without surgery. There is no pain and minimal downtime associated with the non-surgical butt lift.

First Steps

What’s the first step?

During your consultation, you will meet with Dr. Arslanian and his staff and have the opportunity to discuss your situation as well as your concerns and aesthetic goals. Dr. Arslanian will take a thorough history and perform a complete examination of your target areas and buttocks. Photos will be taken to help Dr. Arslanian point out certain things and explain his approach to gluteal augmentation. If you are deemed a good candidate, he will discuss the various options and make sure you are happy with your decision. He will also show you other patients before and after photos to give you a reasonable idea of expectations. After answering all your questions, you will then sit down with the surgical coordinator to discuss timing, pricing, and any other questions you might have.


What to expect on the day of Brazilian Butt Lift surgery

The procedure will be performed as an outpatient in an accredited surgery center with a board-certified anesthesiologist in the safest conditions possible. The surgery will be performed under general anesthesia. Pre-operative markings will typically be made on the morning of surgery.

 After you are under the effect of the anesthesia, Dr. Arslanian will start by making his sub-centimeter incisions for the liposuction cannulas. SAFE liposuction will then be performed to harvest the fat. The fat will then be processed while Dr. Arslanian continues to contour and sculpt the waist and buttock region. Once that is complete, Dr. Arslanian will then prepare the fat and begin injecting it into the buttocks and surrounding areas in order to achieve the appropriate size and shape you are looking for. You will then be placed into a compression garment awakened from general anesthesia and transferred to the recovery room.

Brazilian Butt Lift recovery

You will go home the same day of surgery and rest. You will need to modify your sleeping and sitting positioning. You will not be able to sit directly on the fat-grafted area for four to six weeks, although this will vary depending on your individual procedure. Patients will typically need a special donut pillow to sit down in a chair without putting pressure directly on the buttock. You will need to wear your compression garment for six weeks to minimize bruising and swelling. You will then transition over to a less compressive garment like “Spanx” for another 6 weeks. You can begin resuming normal activities after two to three weeks and should be fully recovered by about 6 weeks.

Brazilian butt lift patients can expect most of the swelling to be resolved by 3 months, but 10-15% of the swelling can persist for 6 or even 12 months. Fat graft retention can be somewhat variable, but on average 60% of the fat will survive. For this reason, Dr. Arslania will typically “over-graft” to compensate for some of the fat loss over the next several months. In some patients, a touch-up procedure may need to be performed to harvest more fat and add it to the buttock to achieve the desired size.
