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.


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.


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 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.

Ultrasonic BBL Procedure

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:

  • Adds volume and fullness to your buttocks
  • A more youthful appearance
  • Enhances the contours and curves of your lower body
  • Long-term results
