Brazilian Butt Lift in New York

Squats and stair-stepping workouts can help you tone your lower body, but there are limits to what exercise can accomplish for your backside due to age and genetics. The Brazilian Butt Lift is a widely popular cosmetic surgery that can give you that curvy shape you desire while also eliminating unwanted fat.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift? 

This body contouring surgery is unique from other buttock procedures because it uses your own body fat to contour the derrière instead of a gluteal implant. The fat grafting or fat transfer method allows for less recovery time and ensures natural-looking results. The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is ideal for anyone unhappy with their buttock contour with adequate fat stores to take. 

Many of our Manhattan patients want the BBL to address body changes from age, pregnancy, or weight loss.

Why should I choose New Look New Life Cosmetic Surgical Arts?

New Look New Life Cosmetic Surgical Arts is dedicated to providing patients with safe and effective cosmetic procedures to help them achieve their ideal look. By choosing us for your cosmetic surgery needs, you can feel confident that our board-certified cosmetic surgeons will not recommend surgery or treatment unless it is the best way to reach your aesthetic goals. 

Our surgery team will do their best to fit your procedure into your busy schedule, which should be done at least one or two months before a big event or vacation. 

  • Patients undergo Brazilian Butt Lift surgery to:

    • Increase the size of their butt
    • Create a balanced figure
    • Achieve slimmer contours
    • Reduce sagging skin
    • Reduce cellulite
    • Fit better in clothing
    • Feel more confident
  • You may be a candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift if you are unhappy with the size and shape of your butt. Candidates should be in good health, have realistic expectations of their results, and not smoke. Brazilian Butt Lift patients should also have enough excess fat on their bodies to take and inject into the buttocks. 

  • A consultation is necessary to determine your specific needs for your Brazilian Butt Lift.

    During your Brazilian Butt Lift consultation, Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Kim will review your medical history and perform a physical evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure.

    Once confirmed as a candidate, your cosmetic surgeon will:

    • Discuss your goals for the procedure
    • Take photos
    • Explain your surgical options
    • Create a personalized surgical plan

    It is at this time that you will receive an estimated financial plan based on your needs. If you are interested in combining your Brazilian Butt Lift with any other cosmetic procedure, that will be discussed at your consultation.

How Can I Personalize My Brazilian Butt Lift?

Since everyone has different needs for the procedure, your Brazilian Butt Lift is highly customizable. You and your surgeon will determine your donor site and how much fat needs to be injected to achieve your desired results. You can also combine your Brazilian Butt Lift with additional cosmetic procedures to improve other aspects of your appearance.

Where Are My Brazilian Butt Lift Incisions Made?

Small incisions will be made at your donor site(s) to harvest the fat using gentle liposuction techniques. Your cosmetic surgeon will work to place these incisions in inconspicuous areas.

Where Is Fat Taken for a BBL?

Common donor sites for Brazilian Butt Lift surgery are the waist, thighs, and abdomen. However, in rare cases, fat can be taken from the back, arms, chin, etc.

  • Many patients choose to combine their Brazilian Butt Lift with a tummy tuck to achieve a slimmer, more attractive abdomen. While liposuction techniques remove unwanted fat from the abdomen to inject into the buttocks, sagging skin will not be corrected with liposuction alone. Tummy tuck surgery can eliminate excess skin from the abdomen to create a flatter stomach.

  • Brazilian Butt Lift surgery can be performed as a part of a Mommy Makeover. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures that treat the areas of the body commonly affected by pregnancy and childbirth, such as breast augmentation surgery and liposuction surgery.

What Are Your Concerns?

What Will My Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery Be Like?

To properly recover from your Brazilian Butt Lift, you will need to take the first week off from work and other responsibilities to focus on resting. However, you can resume light activities almost immediately for a faster recovery.

Please be sure to follow all post-operative instructions provided by your cosmetic surgeon to minimize your risk of complications.

Is Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Painful?

Your Brazilian Butt Lift will be performed under general anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Because of this, you will not feel any pain during surgery.

Pain and discomfort felt during your recovery can be managed with prescription or over-the-counter medication.

Will My BBL Leave Scars?

Since only small incisions are made in inconspicuous areas, scars are minimal and will fade over time.

How Much Is a Brazilian Butt Lift in New York?

The cost of your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure will depend on the amount of correction needed and the specific surgical techniques used. Generally, Brazilian Butt Lift cost will depend on surgeon fees, anesthesia fees, operating room fees, and the procedure’s location.

A consultation with Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Kim will help you determine a more accurate financial estimate.

If you are concerned about paying for your procedure, we offer financing options.

What Are Some Frequently Asked Questions About BBL Surgery?

  • Before surgery, you should plan to take adequate time off work and other obligations to properly rest and recover. Please plan to bring a responsible adult with you to the surgical appointment since you will be unable to drive yourself home.

    Please follow any additional pre-operative instructions provided to you at your consultation.

  • Results from your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery will be visible almost immediately. However, swelling and bruising will affect the appearance of your results and may take a few weeks to subside. Results will also continue to improve over the next few months as some of the fat is absorbed and the remaining fat settles.

  • Your Brazilian Butt Lift will take anywhere between two and four hours to complete. This varies based on how much enhancement is needed. 

  • Visit our butt augmentation before and after image gallery to view our patients’ results.

  • The results from your Brazilian Butt Lift are intended to be long lasting. However, fat loss and gain can affect the appearance of your results. We recommend that you live a healthy lifestyle and maintain a healthy weight to enjoy your results longer.

  • When performed by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, BBL surgery is generally safe. However, risks are present with any procedure.

    Possible Brazilian Butt Lift risks include:

    • Bruising
    • Swelling
    • Blood clots
    • Anesthesia risks
    • Blood loss
    • Fat embolism

    Please speak with your surgeon if you are concerned about the risks associated with a Brazilian Butt Lift.
