What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Shapely, perky buttocks are a key characteristic of an attractive, youthful figure. Unfortunately, as a result of aging, gravity, pregnancy, genetics, and / or large weight loss, the buttocks often develop a sagging, flattened appearance that lacks roundness and definition. Buttocks lift surgery gives the buttocks a firmer, lifted appearance through techniques to remove excess skin and tighten sagging skin and tissues.
A buttocks lift is most often combined with butt augmentation using fat grafting (Brazilian Butt Lift) to improve the contour of the buttocks. In some cases, butt augmentation, alone, can be all that is needed to give the buttocks a more lifted appearance, using fat grafts to add volume to the upper portion of the buttocks.
Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is one of the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures available in 2018. A butt lift procedure can not only lift a sagging backside, but also shape and contour a flat bottom.
By using excess fat from your thighs, stomach/tummy/abdomen, or hips, your Galardi/Rosenblum plastic surgeon will instantly plump and volumize the buttocks for immediately noticeable lift, perk, and shapliness.
How is a Brazilian Butt Lift different?
A brazilian butt lift (or buttocks augmentation) is different from traditional butt implants because this cosmetic procedure utilizes fat from your own body, as opposed to inserting cosmetic implants to achieve similar results.
Many patients agree that the Brazilian Butt Lift offers a more natural look and feel and with a shorter recovery time and fewer risks since the material injected is natural, it’s no wonder that BBLs have become one of our most popular procedures!
The combined procedures provide the following benefits:
- Tighten and lift sagging buttocks
- Improve the projection and contour of flat buttocks
- Enhance the flattering fit of of your clothes so you can wear jeans, swimsuits, shorts and other fitted attire with confidence
- Because fat grafts come from a patient’s own body, there is little to no chance of an allergic reaction

Is a Butt Lift permanent?
Brazilian Butt Lift results can last up to 20 years! Although some of the injected fat will naturally be reabsorbed into your body, the rest will always remain behind you, looking fabulous. With a healthy lifestyle and no dramatic weight fluctuations, your results can last decades.
How much does a BBL cost?
A Brazilian Butt Lift, or buttocks augmentation, varies in price from $5,000—$10,000. We’ll discuss your unique body goals, lifestyle, expectations, and more at your FREE butt lift consultation with Rosenblum Plastic Surgery. The total cost of your butt lift surgery may include certain aspects of your aftercare and some medical garments.
A traditional butt lift may include an additional charge for the implants themselves, but a BBL takes fat from your body.
What kind of results can I expect from BBL?
Brazilian Butt Lift results can last for up to twenty years! Results will be immediately visible, but should not be considered final until 3-4 months post-op. Take this time for you and your body to become familiar with the new you, as a huge part of plastic surgery recovery is mental and emotional. It’s okay to feel what you feel afterwards, and get used to your new shape and contour.
Is BBL surgery safe?
Brazilian Butt Lift plastic surgery is quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. Butt lift surgery is safe when performed in a surgical operating suite accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, like Rosenblum Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach. Our knowledgeable nursing staff answer all your questions before your surgery and take excellent care of you afterwards, and our surgeons are experienced and meticulous. We feel confident that you will love your butt lift results—just ask some of our patients.
What is the recovery time for BBL?
Most Brazilian Butt Lift patients prefer to take a week off of work to recover, and we at Rosenblum Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach recommend taking short walks around your neighborhood during this time.
After a week or two, depending on our discussion at your FREE butt lift consultation, we may ask you to return to our safe, clean, and accredited plastic surgery facility. We’ll take a look at how you’re healing up and may change our instructions for your recovery, depending on how you’re doing.
After 2-3 weeks, your life should be relatively back to normal, although we suggest avoiding the gym, strenuous activity, swimming, and taking baths.
After one month, you should be fine!
Am I a good candidate for Butt Lift surgery? What if I don’t have enough fat in my body?
While there is no specific weight recommendation for BBL, the procedure does essentially encompass liposuction within it. The area of your body from which we draw the fat varies from person to person, but you can expect to finally lose that 20 or 30 pounds you’ve been trying to diet and exercise away.
