Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian Butt Lift, BBL for short, can correct a range of imperfections, such as disproportionate buttocks and unwanted body fat. It is the most natural approach for butt augmentation because it utilizes the patient’s body fat to enhance the buttocks. Patients who opt for Brazilian Butt Lift surgery get the added benefit of liposuction to complement their new butt and overall figure. By choosing to have a Brazilian Butt Lift, you can achieve the voluptuous shape of your dreams.

Do you...

  • Desire a sculpted hourglass silhouette?
  • Feel your butt is lacking in volume and shape?
  • Want fuller hips?
  • Want a naturally curvaceous butt?


Lipo Everywhere!

Because a Brazilian Butt Lift requires liposuction to harvest excess fat, you can augment your butt and sculpt problem areas at the same time. Dr. Agullo has coined the phrase “lipo everywhere” when patients take advantage of removing as much fat from unwanted areas as possible. Some patients combine Lipo 360 with abdominal etching to obtain an instant six pack.

Natural Results

By opting for a Brazilian Butt Lift, you will achieve a fuller, rounder butt with your own fat. The procedure is one of the least invasive, which means your recovery will be shorter, enabling you to enjoy your new look sooner.

Bikini Body!

Typically, patients who decide to enhance their curves with a Brazilian Butt Lift experience a noticeable boost in their confidence. You could have a bikini body in as little as six weeks!


A Brazilian Butt Lift is performed using an advanced technique called fat transfer, which is a three-step process that includes liposuction, fat purification, and fat injection. Fat transfer is a cutting-edge method used to revamp body aesthetics as naturally as possible.


Step 1: Liposuction

Step 1: Liposuction

First, Dr. Agullo performs liposuction on problem areas to harvest fat for the transfer. Common areas for fat removal include the abdomen, hips, back, and thighs.


Step 2: Fat Purification

Step 2: Fat Purification

The harvested fat is then purified using a closed system to ensure the highest percentage of retention. Only the highest quality fat cells are used for fat injection because they are more likely to graft successfully.


Step 3: Fat Injection

Step 3: Fat Injection

Lastly, Dr. Agullo injects the purified fat into the buttocks through small incisions. The fat is injected in thin, even layers for a smooth result.

Preparing for Your Surgery

Proper planning and preparation can help you have a quicker and smoother recovery process. Some things you should do to prepare for your surgery include:
  • Line up a family member or friend to drive you home after your procedure.
  • Ensure you have your paperwork and your ID.
  • Don’t eat or drink after midnight the day of your scheduled procedure.
  • Stop smoking for at least six weeks prior to your surgery to lower your risk of blood clots and other complications.
  • Don’t take medication that will thin your blood for two weeks before your procedure.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ

How long will it take to recover from a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Because the Brazilian Butt Lift utilizes fat grafting rather than butt implants, you can return to work about seven days after surgery. You need to use a pillow when sitting to avoid putting pressure on your butt and disrupting the fat grafting process. After about four weeks, you can resume your normal activities, including exercise.

When will I see the final result of my Brazilian Butt Lift?

Although patients notice immediate results, it takes several months to see the final outcome of a Brazilian Butt Lift. Once the fat has grafted successfully, in about four weeks, the results are permanent.

How long will my Brazilian Butt Lift results last?

After a Brazilian Butt Lift, you will lose some volume of your buttocks; however, the fat that grafts successfully becomes a part of your body. Buttock size usually stabilizes after four weeks. Weight gain and loss after surgery can also affect your results, so it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to preserve your new look.

Can I sit after a Brazilian Butt Lift?

You will not be able to sit after any butt augmentation surgery, and this is especially important to remember after a Brazilian Butt Lift. Sitting should be avoided for two weeks, and a BBL pillow should be used to keep pressure off the buttocks if sitting is necessary. Putting pressure on the fat graft disrupts the grafting process and can compromise your results.

How much does a Brazilian Butt Lift cost?

Pricing varies depending on the extent of the treatment or surgery. You can see a list of the approximate prices of each procedure on our current fee schedule. Dr. Agullo charges a consultation fee of $100, which is applied to the cost of your treatment. Generally speaking, cosmetic plastic surgery is considered “elective” and is not covered by most insurance plans. The prices listed on our fee schedule represent the minimum cost of the procedures, including anesthesia and surgical facility fees, medical tests, garments, and recovery products. The cost of prescription medications, however, is not included. The exact price of each procedure can only be determined after a thorough consultation. All fees must be paid in full prior to the scheduled treatment.
