It’s official! The Brazilian Butt Lift is continuing its rise in popularity and has become one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries today. It’s not surprising though – with the growth of social media influencers and celebrities posting their new looks online, we’re seeing a lot of care for the derriere. 

So, if a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is something you’re considering, what do you need to know? Well, there’s quite a bit. While this may be a cosmetic transformation, it is still surgery and should be treated as such. Most importantly though, you’ll need to understand the difference between BBL and butt implants. Often people get the two procedures confused but, as we’ll discuss later, they are vastly different and produce very different results. 

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

There is a clear difference between a Brazilian Butt Lift and butt implants and it’s something you need to understand before you start looking for surgeons. 

A BBL is an augmentation of the buttocks using fat grafting – the process involves the transfer of fat tissue from one part of your body to another. There are several clear benefits to this process:

  1. You are using an existing part of your body (not introducing a foreign matter), which means your body is more likely to accept and respond to the transfer of fat tissue.
  2. The fat needed is usually removed from your thighs, tummy, hips or waist – this helps to sculpt your overall body shape and keep everything in proportion.  
  3. The surgery is less invasive than alternative buttock augmentation procedures and results in much more natural looking buttocks.  

Expected Results – Brazilian Butt Lift Vs Butt Implants

Experienced surgeons, like Dr Goldman, only offer Brazilian Butt Lift procedures and not implant surgery. The risk involved with implant surgery is one reason. The other is based purely on results. 

Let’s take a look at what you should expect post-procedure.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Apart from giving you more natural, sculpted buttocks, BBL can also deliver benefits to other parts of your body. The fat tissue that is needed to reshape your buttocks is taken from areas that are known for storing stubborn fat. Areas like the hips, waist, tummy and thighs. 

The result is a total reshaping of your body. Everything is in proportion. The fat transfer process also helps to produce new collagen, which creates healthier skin.

Butt Implant

While the BBL procedure is all about a well-proportioned body, implants only focus on one area.  The issue can be an unnatural over-accentuation of the buttocks and a body that looks out of proportion. 

Implants also require more invasive surgery which results in longer recovery time and may cause short or long-term scarring. An artificial implant will also feel less natural. 

How much is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The price of your Brazilian Butt Lift is determined by the number of areas that need to undergo liposuction and the amount of fat removed. This procedure will vary from person to person and hence, the cost cannot be one-price-fits-all. Some surgeons may quote a ‘starting from’ price – be aware that the final cost will more than likely be above that price.

To find out the cost of your Brazilian Butt Lift, contact Dr Goldman today. During your initial consultation, you’ll discuss the results you should expect from your procedure and which areas you would like to remove the donor fats from. This will help determine the final cost.
