Brazilian Butt Lift: The Real Skinny on Redistributing Fat Cells


Brazil is all the hype this summer! They are already well renowned for their shapely and curvy bodies and their Carnivals. Hosting this year’s World Cup has brought even more attention to their famous buttock contours. Yet, it’s no secret that Brazilian women are not all born that way!

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and wished you could do some fatty tissue recycling? How about taking some of your fat cells from areas that have too many and moving them into other areas that could use a little more?


That is exactly the theory and science behind the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) or buttock augmentation with fat injections, as it involves fat transfer, which is also known as fat grafting. Basically, the process involves taking fat from the hips, abdomen, thighs or lower back and transferring it to the buttocks.

A Brazilian Butt Lift redefines and enhances the size and shape of a person’s buttocks through a fat transfer procedure. Dr. Agullo will use your own fat cells, removing them through liposuction from one area, processing and preparing them for repositioning into areas where enhancement is desired. These newly transferred fat cells will develop a brand new blood supply of their own and contrary to popular belief will not disappear over time, due to the fact that this transplanted tissue is rich in stem cells.

As an added benefit to a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, additional liposuction is usually performed around and near the buttocks to better contour and improve the appearance of lifting and shaping the entire area to put more curves where you want them. This process usually results in a skinnier waistline, better-contoured thighs, and a shapely gluteal region.

While  a Brazilian Butt Lift does involve minor surgery and local anesthesia, it takes only about 2 to 4 hours and does not involve an overnight hospital stay. A weeks rest is recommended for post-operative care, and the body should return to normal, physically and comfort-wise, within two to three months.

Whether it’s done to complement breast augmentation surgery, to revitalize sagging derrieres due to the aging process, or to accommodate the tighter, lower-cut garments worn for casual or formal dress, many women are opting for BBL surgery since it is tailored for each patient.

Can You Get Superior Posteriors Through Gluteal Implants?

The quest for the perfect butt predates the invention of the bicycle, and for those who don’t want to put in hours of sweat on a bicycle seat, there are other, less sweat-inducing ways to achieve a superior posterior.

Buttock augmentation, also known as butt or gluteal implants, are performed by a relatively small group of plastic and cosmetic surgeons who have plenty of experience in the form of thousands of these procedures to their credit. The reason the procedure is not more widely practiced is the complicated nature of the procedure and the requirement that those doing it have extensive experience in forming or sculpting solid, silicone implants that cannot shift from their original positions or develop infections, either of which would result in serious, post-surgery medical problems.

Whether it‘s a “Jennifer Lopez” or “Beyoncé  Booty” for women, or the maximum gluteus Maximus a man can get, it can be attained via gluteal implants.

Simply put, surgical implants add curvature and definition where there previously was none of either. Implants vary in size, shape, style and surgical procedure. If necessary or desired, buttock lifts can be performed in addition to implants.

Gluteal Implants are most often used for enlargement of the buttock region, but also for treatment or correction of asymmetry. The implants are usually placed within the buttocks muscles, so that the implant does not shift and is less palpable. Although some surgeons place the implant in the subfascial plane, this results in increased complications, palpability of implant or displacement.

Butt implants are generally available in four basic styles: round, non-directional, directional, and custom, but there are many other more specific styles and types skilled doctors like Dr. Agullo at Southwest Plastic Surgery.

Round, the most common type of implants used, can be used in both medically acceptable insertion planes.

Gluteal implants, like all aspects and procedures connected to plastic surgery, have come a long way in a relatively short amount of time. Advances in materials and techniques have made augmentation safer, affordable, and common. With so many options and choices available, anyone interested in gluteal implants should consult an experienced physician to find the best options.

Dr. Frank Agullo, board-certified plastic surgeon at Southwest Plastic Surgery can answer all of your questions and address any concerns you may have about gluteal implants, as well as present you the options on the best way to go about achieving your physical enhancement or augmentation preferences.
