Glute-sculpting exercises and a carefully-planned diet can only do so much in terms of accentuating your backside. Your butt shape and size are largely determined by factors beyond your control, such as your age, genetics, and fat distribution. If you’re looking for a proven way to overcome those factors and achieve a more aesthetically pleasing shape, a Brazilian butt lift may be the answer.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a popular fat grafting or fat transfer procedure performed to improve the size, shape, and contour of the buttocks. An alternative to butt implants, this approach uses excess fat from another area of your body to add fullness to your backside. Many people prefer this technique because it provides a more natural and customizable result.
The procedure offers a wide range of benefits, including:
- A rounder and curvier buttocks shape
- Increased buttocks projection
- A more proportional and balanced figure
- A slimmer and flatter appearance in the donor region
- Improved appearance in clothing and swimsuits
- Enhanced self-image
Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates
Generally speaking, a Brazilian butt lift may be right for you if you are interested in:
- Enhancing your natural buttocks shape
- Reversing changes caused by weight gain or loss, aging, or pregnancy
- Helping your buttocks look more proportionate to the rest of your body
- Improving the appearance of a flat, droopy, or square backside
- Correcting buttocks asymmetry
You may be an ideal Brazilian butt lift candidate if you are in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding what the procedure can accomplish. On top of that, it is necessary to have some excess fat in other areas of your body to be used for your Brazilian butt lift. A few common donor areas for fat removal include the abdomen, hips, thighs, and back.
Your Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
Dr. Castor performs buttock augmentation procedures on an outpatient basis from our accredited in-office surgical suite. The procedure is completed under general anesthesia. Depending on the specifics of your Brazilian butt lift, the surgery may last anywhere from two to five hours.
First, Dr. Castor performs liposuction on the donor region to obtain fat cells for the augmentation. This step has the added benefit of improving the contour of the donor area. Then, the fat is purified to prepare it for reinjection.
Next, Dr. Castor will strategically place small injections of fat in specific areas of your buttocks to achieve a fuller and shapelier result. He has an in-depth understanding of the functional systems of the body and the underlying structure of the buttocks. He knows where to inject the fat, the amount that can be safely injected, and how deep to inject.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery and Results
Recovering from a Brazilian butt lift is relatively simple and straightforward. You can return home after your surgery, though you will need to arrange a ride. Any post-operative discomfort is typically minimal and can be controlled through medication.
Dr. Castor will give you a complete list of instructions to follow, including activity restrictions and aftercare. It is important to adhere to these post-operative guidelines to ensure optimal results.
There are a few special considerations that come with healing from a buttocks procedure. You will need to sleep on your side and avoid sitting during the initial recovery period. After that, you will likely need to sit on a pillow or special seat for several weeks.
In terms of results, you will notice an immediate improvement in the shape and size of your buttocks. Keep in mind that your final appearance may not be visible for several months as your body heals and swelling subsides.
