What is Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as BBL, is a highly sought-after cosmetic surgery that uses your own body fat to alter the size and shape of your buttocks. Since it involves extracting body fat, this procedure is a combined procedure that includes Liposuction and Fat Transfer techniques. 

Once extracted, the fat is injected into your buttocks, sculpting and designing a lifted and better-shaped appearance to your gluteal and/ or hip areas. By redistributing your fat cells, this procedure is more natural while still altering the overall proportions of your body.

Who are the Best Candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?

The best Candidates for a San Jose and Bay Area Brazilian Butt Lift are individuals who have some of the following characteristics:

  • Good skin elasticity to the buttocks

Brazilan Butt Lift First Step

What’s the First Step?

If you are interested in getting a Brazilian Butt Lift in Los Gatos, San Jose, and the greater Bay Area, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Eric Li. When you come in for your appointment, Dr. Li will discuss your medical history and any past surgeries or health risks that you have to see if this is a procedure safe for you.

He will then physically examine you, taking note of areas that can undergo liposuction to provide fat, whilst also examining your structure and frame to see what where your buttocks and hips can be enhanced favorably to improve your body proportions. Dr. Li will also discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations for the size and shape of your new buttocks. Once you are both in agreement on the direction to take, Dr. Li will create your customized procedure plan and our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you schedule your appointment, price out your plan as well as share any pre-operative instructions for you.

What to Expect on the Day of Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

When you come in for your surgery, our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible. Dr Li and his staff will get you settled in the procedure room, to go over the surgical plan one final time. After everything is ready, the anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia so that you are pain-free during the procedure.

Once sedated, liposuction will be performed via tiny incisions in the target areas to extract the fat for the buttock area. This extracted fat will then be processed before being injected into your buttock and hip areas. It is important for the fat to be only injected in the space between your skin and muscles and not your muscles or deeper.  The injected fat will help create an enhanced and curvier appearance in your buttocks. After fat injections are completed, all access incisions will then be closed with stitches. Lastly, you will be placed in a compression garment to support your buttocks and areas where you had liposuction.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Post-surgery, you will be monitored in our recovery room until Dr. Li decides that you are safe to be discharged. You will need a family member or friend available to drive you home in case you are still feeling some of the effects of sedation.

It is common to see bruising and swelling and experience minor discomfort after the procedure.  

It’s essential to follow Dr. Li’s post-operative instructions, including proper wound care, wearing the compression garment, minimizing pressure and sitting on the gluteal area, and having post-surgical lymphatic massages. There are special pillows that you can get to help offload pressure from your buttocks. We recommend up to six weeks of care and rest before returning to normal daily activities.

Brazilan Butt Lift Cost

How Much Does Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in San Jose, CA?

The cost of Brazilian Butt Lift in Los Gatos, San Jose, and the greater Bay Area is based on several factors, including the number of areas being targeted for liposuction, whether liposuction will be performed with technologies such as Renuvion or Aveli, and the complexity of the surgery. For the most accurate cost of your BBL procedure, please schedule your consultation with Dr. Li at your earliest convenience so that he can give you a treatment plan and a patient coordinator can provide pricing.

Dr. Li also performs a special variant of Brazilian Butt Lift surgery which is safer and involves the use of an ultrasound machine during surgery to visualize the location of the fat injections, known as ultrasound-guided BBL. As aforementioned, it is crucial that the fat be only injected in the space between your skin and muscles and not your muscles or deeper, as this can be potentially dangerous to your health.  Not every surgeon uses this technology, but Dr. Li does not compromise on safety and always has your best interest in mind.

If you have cellulite involving your buttocks and hips as well, Brazilian Butt Lift will not fix this, however, Dr. Li performs another treatment called Aveli which could be easily combined with any buttock fat transfer to improve indentations and contour irregularities caused by cellulite bands involving your buttocks.
