Brazilian Butt Lift Q & A

arm liposuctionThe Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in recent years. Often called a two in one procedure, this surgery offers patients a natural solution to enhance their shape with a slimmer waist and a more shapely and proportionate backside. Fat removed from the abdomen and flanks or “love handles” can be transferred to the buttocks and or hips. This procedure called Lipo360 with BBL is Tampa Bay Body Sculpting’s most popular procedure.

At your free consultation, we at Tampa Bay Body Sculpting will evaluate your overall health and BMI to design your comprehensive surgical plan. We offer both in office and virtual consultations via email for your convenience.

Is BMI important for this procedure?

At your free consultation we will develop a comprehensive surgical plan to fit your body goals.

  • If your BMI is at least 18, Dr. Robert Miles can transfer enough fat for a BBL. Dr. Miles does not recommend gaining weight for a BBL as weight will not go to specific areas, but will be proportionate to your body.
  • If your BMI is over 29, Dr. Miles will suggest two separate surgeries for multiple areas of liposuction. These surgeries can be 2-4 weeks apart depending how you heal.
  • The State of Florida places limitations on the amount of fat that can be removed in each surgery for the safety of patients. A patient seeking multiple areas with a BMI greater than 29 will need to have more than one surgery to attain desired goals. 

What areas can fat be taken from for a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) with Liposuction and Body Contouring?

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles (Flanks)
  • Arms
  • Thighs

What is the downtime and healing process after a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) surgery?

Immediately following the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, patients are required to have a trusted person with them to drive them home from Tampa Bay Body Sculpting that day following their procedure because of the use of medication used during the procedure. Patients can expect to have bruising and swelling in the areas used to harvest the fat cells. Every patient recovers differently from surgery, but most often one can expect to be up and walking a day or two after the procedure. Excess tumescent fluid may also drain from the incision points. Do not be alarmed if the fluid is tinged with blood, as this is completely normal and will cease a few days after surgery. Dr. Miles advises patients to wear a compression garment or “faja” for 4-6 weeks post surgery. This garment distributes pressure across your treatment areas to ensure that areas where the fat was harvested heal properly. This also helps to minimize swelling, decrease discomfort, and help the skin tighten and retract. You will be instructed not to place direct weight on your buttocks or hips where the fat was placed. Dr. Miles recommends patients use a BBL butt pillow for 4 weeks post surgery so pressure is directed to the thighs instead of the butt. During the healing process patients will experience slight bruising, discomfort, and swelling which will all subside with time. The exact timeframe for recovery depends on how quickly you heal and what you do for work or regular activities. On average patients recover 2-5 days following their procedure. Dr. Miles recommends light walking post surgery to increase circulation and keep blood flowing. Dr. Miles recommends ultrasound cavitation treatments to help your body heal and to improve final results. These post care treatments help the lymphatics and speed up the healing process. Dr. Miles recommends starting these treatments at your 1 week follow up appointment. 


How much does a Brazilian butt lift cost?

The total cost for your Brazilian butt lift (BBL) will include both the liposuction and fat transfer surgery, surgical fees, anesthesia, as well as pre-op and post-operative care. When Dr. Miles has created your surgical plan, he will be able to estimate your costs.

When will I see results from a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)?

Results can show as soon as 1 week post surgery as swelling subsides and will continue to improve over a 6 month period to 1 year following your procedure. The buttocks and hips where fat was transferred will change in size as the stem cells attach to the new areas of your body. 

How long will my results last?

With Dr. Miles’ experience and proven techniques of fat placement, the majority of fat cells stay alive by using state of the art liposculpture technology aiding in the viability of fat cells during the transfer process. While some fat may be reabsorbed after the Brazilian Butt Lift, most of the fat will remain in your buttocks

permanently. To maintain your results, you should keep your weight steady since significant weight gain or loss can alter the results of your Brazilian Butt Lift.
