What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Many women strive for an appearance that empowers them to become better versions of themselves. A BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) is one way they seek to achieve this. While this enhances and heightens the form of the buttocks, the hips and waist are contoured at the same time.

One great thing about the BBL procedure is less chance of rejection from the body because it is the patient's own fat cells that are injected back into the buttocks to deliver the curvaceous shape you are looking for.

What Is An Ultrasonic BBL?

At our practice in Miami Ultrasound-assisted Brazilian butt lift is offered as a fat grafting surgical procedure that removes and redistributes excess fat from an undesired part of the body (such as the waist, stomach, or back) to inject it into the buttocks and hips for better body contouring. Ultrasound-assisted BBL revamps the fullness and shape of the buttocks to better properly fit with the rest of the body. The goal is to create harmony between the upper body, buttock, and lower body. Dr. Z is an expert at enhancing the buttock volume and shape in a safe manner that fits each individual patient.

Fat grafting, as a technique for buttock enhancement, has become very popular for patients who want a fuller, shapelier appearance, while not introducing foreign bodies such as implants. In this procedure, fat obtained by liposuction from one part of the body is processed and injected to enhance the gluteal area. Real-Time Ultrasound-Assisted gluteal fat grafting provides a precision method of monitoring the injection process to ensure you receive the best results, safely. This technique aids the surgeon to inject these deposits in the correct plane over the muscle.

Platelet-rich Plasma + Ultrasonic BBL

One of the most exciting additions to the BBL in recent years has been the addition of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the injection process. With the BBL, the amount of fat that the body “takes” following the injection determines how long the positive effects of the procedure last and its ultimate visual effectiveness.

Platelet-rich plasma treatments are when plasma is taken from your blood and isolated via a centrifuge, then reinjected back into the body as part of another procedure. By combining PRP and BBL, studies have shown that the percentage of fat that the body accepts goes up. The more the body accepts (more fat survives) - the better the results.

Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Zuri is a strong supporter of using PRP in BBL procedures. He has seen the positive results firsthand and believes in making that option available to all his BBL patients.

Am I A Candidate For A Brazilian Butt Lift?

Genetics affect the shape of your buttocks, the frame of your body, and how fat will be stored. All this will be an influence on how the body looks, and in this case, the lower half. While exercise and a healthy diet can aid in maintaining an ideal weight and a healthy muscle tone. For many, the buttock may still look flat and lack shape.

When prospective patients are interested in a BBL Miami plastic surgeon, Dr. Z explains to them what a patient can hope to achieve by this procedure. Here are the main areas a Brazilian Butt Lift can target:

  • Enhancing bodily curves
  • Reducing pockets of bodily fat
  • Delivering a youthful appearance
  • Improving the body's balance between the upper and lower parts

If you have good skin tone and enough fat in some areas of your body, you are a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift. You should be in good physical health, a non-smoker, and with a stable weight.

The first step to receiving a smooth and safe Brazilian Butt Lift in Miami is to choose a certified doctor like Dr. Z to work with. He is an experienced surgeon leading a skillful team to help you on your journey toward the body you've always desired.

What Are The Risks With A Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a safe procedure. Minor side effects can include an infection. The Real-Time Ultrasound-Assisted gluteal fat grafting provides the most precise method of monitoring the injection process to ensure you receive the best results and decrease a possible complication.

The Ultrasonic Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

Patients who make ideal candidates will go under general anesthesia for this procedure. Like any liposuction, there are small incisions made in the body close to where fat deposits are removed.

A Brazilian butt lift is usually done as an outpatient procedure removing fat from a specific area, including the abdomen, waist, arms, back, and thighs - using liposuction. The fat is then purified before being transferred and injected into the buttocks to add volume and alter the shape and size of the buttock.

During an ultrasonic Brazilian Butt Lift Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Zuriarrain uses a wireless ultrasound probe placed on the buttocks to locate the tissue layer where the grafted fat is introduced and monitored in real-time, making it far safer and more precise than former techniques. The ultrasound images are projected wirelessly on a screen so that the doctor and his assistants can follow the procedure closely. Real-time ultrasound-assisted gluteal fat grafting is reliable and can avoid injuring the deep vessels and decreasing the risks of major complications. Many patients have taken advantage of an Ultrasonic Brazilian butt lift and notice some of its amazing benefits such as:

1. Fat Removal

This fat is removed from the body by a cannula, where it is then separated and purified. After this phase of the procedure, the cleaned fat will be injected back into the body at certain positions around the buttocks to enhance the shape and increase volume.

2. Incision Closure

Once this has been done, the incisions will be closed and surgical dressings fitted. On some occasions, patients may also need compression garments or elastic bandages depending on the extent of the fat removed via liposuction.

3. Before a Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

Dr. Zuriarrain holds his initial consultation to get to know the patient, and to educate them on what a Brazilian Butt Lift will entail. Both sides will ask questions at this stage, and the doctor will determine if the likely candidate has any medical conditions or they are taking medications, which may cause complications. Miami BBL patients will need to divulge if they are smoking, taking supplements, or if they use any recreational drugs because these can cause problems during a surgical procedure.

After a thorough examination, the doctor will show the patient the areas of their body that fat will be removed. Liposuction will target the hips, thighs, lower back and abdomen among the main areas.

During your consultation with Dr. Zuriarrain, you will have a chance to learn about an ultrasonic Brazilian butt lift and ask any questions about the procedure. Our goal is to assess your specific needs and how it can best work for you. Dr. Z takes the time to listen to your concerns and will also discuss your health history.

As a board-certified surgeon, Dr. Z has years of experience helping women in Miami with procedures such as ultrasonic Brazilian butt lift, to excellent results. He can help achieve the sculpted and curvy figure you’ve always wanted. Dr. Z has created a comfortable environment to make your visit a relaxing and welcoming experience.

After a BBL Procedure

What Are The Results Of A Brazilian Butt Lift?

Oral painkillers can be taken if there is extreme discomfort, and to help swelling subside after the procedure. It is also advisable for all patients to walk around after this procedure to minimize the risks of blood clotting.

A patient should be able to return to regular activities after two weeks. Miami BBL patients should refrain from physical activity or exercise for up to six weeks unless advised otherwise by Dr. Zuriarrain’s Miami, FL clinic. One of the hardest things for most patients is to refrain from directly sitting on their buttocks for two weeks after a Brazilian Butt Lift. Because this fat is from the patient, there is between 50 to 80% chance the fat will acclimate in the new location. With this in mind, it may be a requirement for some patients to undergo further fat grafting procedures to reach the desired goals.

The results of a Brazilian butt lift are long-lasting and you will continue to notice great results for many years. It can take up to six months for the swelling to go away after your procedure and see the final results, which will be a curvier butt and enhanced lower body proportions. It is important to maintain a stable weight as any major loss or gain can affect the results.

Safety Of Gluteal Fat Grafting

There has been a sharp increase in popularity for gluteal fat grafting in the past few years. The real-time ultrasound-assisted gluteal fat grafting technique is a proven and reliable procedure that allows Dr. Z to ensure the cannula is properly used when the fat is injected.

The key is to inject the fat subcutaneously so as to avoid causing any damage to the deep vascular structures. In an article entitled “Real-Time Ultrasound-Assisted Gluteal Fat Grafting” published by the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, real-time ultrasound-assisted gluteal fat grafting was found to be a reliable technique. The risks of major complications can be lessened by not affecting the deep vascular structures. Dr. Zuriarrain has published his work in the medical literature.

A proper safe technique is to inject the fat into the subcutaneous layer and not any deeper. The recommendation is to maintain the injection above the muscle level and not place it in the muscle. It should only be placed in the subcutaneous tissue. At Zuri Plastic Surgery, we take every precaution to ensure a safe and successful surgery. For gluteal fat grafting, we use a wireless ultrasound device that can confirm the level of buttock fat injection.
