All About Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) in Orange County

The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a type of butt augmentation using your own body fat harvested via liposuction from a surrounding area (arms, flanks, abdomen, etc) to lift, add volume, and reshape your glutes without the use of synthetic surgical implants. This more natural alternative has the added benefit of slimming and removing unwanted volume from the waist and nearby regions, creating a more desirable hourglass-like hip-to-waist ratio.

At CosmetiCare in Newport Beach, a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedure can help to restore your confidence, and have you looking and feeling your best.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) cost?

Starting Price of a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) at CosmetiCare in Newport Beach:
$9,000 (Includes 2 Areas of Liposuction)

Your Brazilian Butt Lift price will depend on the number of areas where your surgeon will perform liposuction to harvest the fat to then inject for the BBL. This, coupled with surgeon and anesthesiologist fees will make up all costs associated with your BBL procedure.

At your consultation for a BBL at CosmetiCare in Orange County, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will prescribe the perfect treatment plan and provide you with an estimate to achieve your aesthetic goals.

We also offer up to 24-month financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

How Long Does it Take to Recover From Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Surgery?

Recovery time varies between two and six weeks, but you should plan to take 10 to 14 days off work.

Most patients find that pain can be controlled through prescribed pain medication and will subside after about a week.

Because your skin will be numb, you mustn’t use ice or a heating pad around surgical sites to avoid burning the skin.

Avoid vigorous exercise for the first month of your recovery.

At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss the procedure outlining recovery, healing, and realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

How Long Until I Can Sit After Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Surgery?

For the first two weeks, you’ll need to avoid any activity – like sitting – that applies direct pressure on your butt as it can cause the newly injected fat cells to die. This two-week period allows enough time for adequate blood supply to develop so the fat graft can take.

At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss the procedure, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

Will Insurance Cover Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) surgery?

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is considered cosmetic surgery, so it is not covered by insurance.

If cost is of concern, we offer financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

What Do I Need To Know?

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure that augments and provides contour to the buttocks and outer hips. Unlike a traditional butt implant or butt lift, the Brazilian Butt Lift utilizes the patient’s fat harvested from liposuction in order to fill in and reshape the buttocks region as desired. The use of the patient’s own fat offers a more natural alternative to synthetic butt implants.

This procedure typically takes place in three steps:

  1. First, liposuction is used to harvest a viable amount of fat from the patient’s body.
  2. Then, the surgeon proceeds to sterilize the fat cells and prepare them for injection.
  3. Finally, the fat is carefully injected into the buttocks and surrounding areas in small amounts until a voluminous, rounder, and more youthful shape is achieved.

The Brazilian Butt Lift has the added benefit of removing unwanted volume from the waist and nearby regions, creating a more desirable hip-to-waist ratio.

Am I a Candidate?
  • Have enough excess fat to be harvested via liposuction?
    Some patients can decide to gain weight prior to a procedure to ensure optimal results.
  • Are you in overall good health with no underlying heart or lung conditions?
  • Desire to add volume and lift to your buttocks with realistic expectations of results?
  • Have sagging or flattened buttocks with excess fat in surrounding areas?
How long will Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) results last?

The fat cells that remain after about four months of recovery will be there permanently.

To keep your BBL results long term, we recommend maintaining your weight post-surgery. Fluctuations in weight can impact your results: drastic weight loss will slim your new butt down, while weight gain can also alter your newly sculpted proportions.

At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss the procedure, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

What Will My Scars Look Like After Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Surgery?

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) scars are minimal. You’ll have scarring from the tiny incisions made for liposuction, usually with underwear or bathing suit bottoms easily concealing.

CosmetiCare offers comprehensive scar treatment solutions. During your consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, they’ll discuss the recovery and healing process and how to minimize scarring post-procedure.

When Will I See Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Results?

You will notice more volume immediately, however, it can take up to four months to see your full results once the swelling from the surgery and liposuction dissipate.

At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss the procedure, outlining the recovery and healing process along with realistic expectations so you leave well equipped to make the best decision.

How Will I Look & Feel Afterwards?
  • After a Brazilian Butt Lift you will look slimmer and more defined in the areas where your fat was harvested.
  • Your buttocks will look rounder, perkier, and more voluminous providing an appearance of youthfulness and robustness.
  • The average recovery time is around two weeks and you will be recommended to not sit directly on your buttocks during that time.
  • Strenuous physical activity and exercise should be avoided for 3-4 weeks after surgery.
  • You will typically be able to return to work and average daily routine in less than 2 weeks.
  • Some patients may experience bruising or swelling, which will subside within 3-4 weeks after the surgery.
  • The injection sites are typically less than a centimeter wide and will be slightly more noticeable in the first few weeks. Any scarring caused by these injections will be easily concealable with most undergarments and clothing until fully healed.
What Else do I Need to Know?

The results of the Brazilian Butt Lift are immediately noticeable, however, it will take a few weeks for swelling to subside and for your body to fully heal. You can expect roughly 60-70% of the fat injected to remain, while the rest will be naturally absorbed and eliminated by your body.

Due to this reabsorption, some patients will be injected with a slight excess of fat to ensure that the remaining fat retains enough volume. The rate at which your body heals is mostly dependent on your lifestyle and overall health.
