Everything You Need to Know About the Brazilian Butt Lift

Over the decades, the ideal butt shape has changed quite a bit. In the 60s, small butts were very popular, as it was easier to fit them under a mini skirt. Plus, the skinnier you were at that time, the better. Now, it’s all about the curves, and women all over the world are chasing that “big butt” effect that many Brazilian women have.


Unfortunately, not all women have the gene for that nice, well-rounded, and voluminous butt. Also, you may not be that lucky in obtaining that well-proportioned effect through dieting and exercise. The good news is that nowadays, you can use a technique called the Brazilian Butt Lift, which can offer you that bouncing butt you’ve been looking for.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a procedure meant to improve your butt shape, adding volume and removing unwanted fat. Despite the name, a BBL is not a traditional “lift” technique where excess skin is removed. Instead, you will receive an augmentation effect, making the sagging skin less apparent.

During a Brazilian Butt Lift, Dr. D’Souza will remove fat from other areas of your body using liposuction and then will insert it in the target area. Once you are done with the recovery, your butt will be bigger and closer to your desired shape. Since your own fat is used, the procedure is a good alternative if you don’t want to use butt implants.

Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lifts bring along a series of benefits, including the following:

1. Confidence Boost

If your confidence is suffering because of your butt proportions, then a butt lift may be able to make you feel better. After the procedure, you should feel confident enough to wear those skinny jeans or tights. Also, you won’t feel as self-conscious doing a sexy dance, as now you have the “tools” to make it work.

2. Better Fit in Clothing

Nowadays, clothes are made to fit the “It” girl with a certain aesthetic: small waist, big butt. If you don’t have that body shape, every pair of pants or tight dress that you buy may end up looking weird on you. By choosing a BBL, you can look forward to wearing your favorite clothes.

3. Lower Risk of Adverse Reactions

Butt lifts are a great option if you want to get an augmentation effect. However, like every other procedure where a foreign substance is injected into your body, the risk of complications is there. With a Brazilian Butt Lift, Dr. D’Souza will be using your own fat to provide a lifting effect. This way, the risk of allergic reactions diminishes considerably.

4. Natural Look

Depending on how big your butt is, a butt implant can look unnatural. And even if it looks natural now, if you lose weight in the future, the implant might seem out of place. With a Brazilian Butt Lift, you reduce this risk, as the fat is properly proportioned in your bottom. Even if you gain or lose weight, the fat deposited in the buttocks will follow its shape accordingly.

5. Long-Lasting Results

The effects of a Brazilian Butt Lift are often semi-permanent, potentially even permanent. You can enjoy the results for as much as 10 years or more, without requiring a touch-up procedure. Other procedures may be good but often need touch-ups or a replacement of the implant. This is why Brazilian Butt Lift surgery should be your go-to if you are looking for a long-lasting solution.

What Does BBL Recovery Look Like?

After a Brazilian Butt Lift, you may need to spend some time recovering as your body is adjusting to the new fat transfer. It may take up to six months until everything heals, and you can enjoy the final result. There may be some inflammation that can make your butt look slightly bigger, but many women see this as a bonus.

For the first three weeks after the Brazilian Butt Lift, you should avoid sitting on your butt or lying on your back. This may cause the fat to transfer in areas where it shouldn’t, leading to wide hips but a flat butt. This doesn’t mean that you should avoid sitting on a toilet when you need to, but otherwise, avoid applying pressure as much as you can.

The Bottom Line

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a great option for everyone who wants to obtain a better-shaped butt. It can make your butt look bigger without the use of foreign substances and implants, and the results are often long lasting.
