Brazilian Butt Lift

BBL NYC Adds Shape & Volume to the Buttocks

Many people struggle to add size and shape to their buttocks naturally. Eating healthy and exercising can only do so much to gain a fuller, more rounded bottom. Whether you wish to add volume or lift the buttocks to a more youthful position, a Brazilian butt lift can help you gain your desired results. Because a Brazilian butt lift uses your own body’s fat, the results will be more natural-looking and natural feeling. Brazilian butt lift in NYC is also a safer alternative than using implants or other artificial methods of butt augmentation. Dr. Levine uses the most advanced techniques to give you the buttocks shape and size you’re looking for. NYC BBL can smooth out any irregularities or asymmetries, as well. The fat harvested for BBL is obtained through liposuction. This means you can gain a fuller bottom, a slimmer figure, and a rejuvenated appearance all in one procedure.

How is the Brazilian butt lift procedure performed?

During your consultation, Dr. Levine will assess your anatomy and help you determine the proper buttocks size and shape for your figure. Fat is retrieved via liposuction. Dr. Levine enters a small cannula through a tiny incision to retrieve the necessary fat. Once the fat is extracted, Dr. Levine will administer the cannula through the buttocks, adding the necessary shape and size. BBL in NYC typically takes 2-4 hours to perform. Patients can go home the same day after their procedure.

Can Brazilian butt lift be combined with other procedures?

Brazilian butt lift is performed with liposuction, including Lipo 360. BBL can also be combined with other plastic surgery procedures, including tummy tuck, mommy makeover, breast augmentation, and more. Dr. Levine will discuss with you which procedures or combination of procedures may best suit your specific needs.

How can I prepare for my Brazilian butt lift procedure?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Levine will examine your buttocks and surrounding areas to determine fat availability and distribution. He will also address your medical history and discuss other factors that may affect a Brazilian butt lift, such as previous surgeries and history of weight fluctuations. He will thoroughly discuss your goals and expectations, including possible risks and the best way to prepare for your surgery. He will let you know what to expect before, during, and after your procedure, and he will answer any questions that you may have.

What kind of anesthesia will be used for Brazilian butt lift?

BBL is performed under general or twilight anesthesia for Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Elie Levine will discuss your procedure thoroughly with our board-certified anesthesiologist to determine the best type of anesthesia for your needs.

What can I expect during Brazilian butt lift surgery?

Brazilian butt lift is usually performed on an outpatient basis in our state-of-the-art, in-office operating suite, which is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). The length of your surgery will depend on many factors, but on average, the procedure usually takes 2-4 hours.* After your procedure, you will rest in our warm and caring recovery suite, where our licensed, registered nurse will make sure you are comfortable and assist in your recovery. You will be able to go home the same day with a friend or family member.

What can I expect after Brazilian butt lift surgery?

Every surgery is different, and you will receive detailed post-operative instructions for your specific needs. In general, you can expect to have swelling in the area for 1-2 weeks after surgery.* Most patients report mild to moderate pain after the surgery, which is usually well-tolerated with medications. At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, our concern for you doesn’t end when you go home. We’re dedicated to providing ongoing care to ensure a fast, safe, and smooth recovery.
