Call today or schedule an appointment online to find out if a Brazilian butt lift is right for you.
A Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, is a surgical procedure that improves the size and shape of your buttocks, helping you to get the curves you desire.
The procedure involves a fat transfer from other parts of your body. Dr. Chen harvests the fat and injects it into your buttocks to give you the desired booty pump.
Before your procedure, you and Dr. Chen will discuss which areas he’ll harvest fat from. The most common areas are the thighs, hips, abdomen, and lower back.
To ensure your comfort throughout the process, you'll be placed under general anesthesia. Dr. Chen then extracts the fat and uses a separation process to prepare it for transfer into your buttocks.
After purification, Dr. Chen injects the fat into the key areas to give your buttocks the shape and volume you desire.
Since a Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient procedure, you can usually go home the same day. Dr. Chen will also give you specific at-home instructions for your recovery and schedule follow-up visits to check on your progress.
Dr. Chen may also ask you to limit activities that put pressure on your buttocks, such as lying on your stomach or side, which might continue for as long as eight weeks. If you must sit, you can do so on a special support cushion designed to minimize pressure.
You may be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift if you feel your buttocks are asymmetrical or too small and flat. The procedure is appropriate for those who’d like to improve the shape of their buttocks.
Prior to surgery, Dr. Chen performs a comprehensive physical exam and reviews your medical history to ensure you're a good fit for the procedure.
However, with any cosmetic procedure, it's important that you have realistic expectations about the results.
