Brazilian Butt Lift Miami

Brazilian Butt Lift is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure in Miami that enhances the look of the buttock by transferring fat from other places to your gluteus. At the same time, you will become slimmer in problematic areas with stubborn fat deposits and gain a perfectly lifted and round butt.

You should notice some improvement immediately after your procedure. However, full results will take a few months to become evident.

The reason for this is that it will take some time for the initial swelling to go down, and not all of the grafted fat will remain. Most patients are able to achieve full results within four to six months after their BBL.

BBL Story


Here are the key points you should know about if you’re thinking of getting a BBL procedure in Miami.

The initial consultation is one of the most important steps when you’re considering getting a BBL done. During a Brazilian butt lift consultation, professional plastic surgeons will assess the patient’s goals and expectations, as well as their current level of fitness. A surgeon will also take measurements and photos to determine the best plan for the procedure.

Patients will be advised and informed about the risks and potential complications of the BBL surgery, as well as what the recovery process will be like. It is important that patients have a realistic expectation of what this surgery can achieve and that they are committed to following post-operative instructions. Only then will the surgeons feel confident about moving forward with the BBL procedure.

BBL procedure is still a procedure and requires general anesthesia. But the surgery itself doesn’t last long – around 2 to 3 hours.
Many patients are worried about the pain after the BBL procedure. Fluid discharge is normal and usually lasts a day or two after the procedure. Bruising and soreness last anywhere between 1 to 2 weeks. Swelling in BBL lasts around 4 to 6 weeks.
  • Walking – You can get up and walk around after 2-3 days. It’s important to take it slow.
  • Normal activities – you can resume your normal activities after 6-8 weeks. 
  • You should avoid strenuous exercise like jogging, running, and biking for the next 6 to 8 weeks after the BBL procedure. 
  • Sitting and laying on your back – avoid as much as possible for at least two months after the procedure. You can lie on your side. 
  • BBL Pillow – use your BBL pillow for sitting for at least two months after BBL. You shouldn’t put too much pressure on your butt area. 
  • BBL compression garment – you should wear your Brazilian butt lift compression garment for 1 to 3 months after the procedure.
Another common misconception is that Brazilian Butt Lift results are visible instantaneously after the procedure. The truth is that it takes between 6 and 12 months to see the results. Luckily, they are somewhat permanent (can last up to 10 years) if you take proper care of your body, feed the fat in the initial period, and don’t lose too much weight.

Preparing for a BBL procedure

Everything that goes for any other general procedure remains in effect for a BBL procedure. You should take care of your body and maintain a healthy lifestyle to reduce the risks of complications. That means that you should stop smoking, avoid alcohol and maintain a healthy weight.

Then, the most important thing you can do for your BBL is to mentally prepare for the upcoming procedure. Make sure you have enough supplies for recovery, some help around the house, and loose clothes for better comfort.

BBL Procedure Process at Moon Aesthetics

A Brazilian Butt Lift procedure gets underway with the harvesting of fat from the predetermined donor area. You will be given a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort, and then the fat will be removed using a small liposuction procedure.

After the fat has been removed, it will need to be processed and purified. The extracted fat will be spun in a centrifuge and purified to ensure that dead, unhealthy, or broken cells are not transferred along with good cells.

Next comes the most important part: Your doctor will reinject the purified fat into your buttocks. This normally involves the delivery of very small amounts of fat at a time to ensure that most of the fat survives the process. Doing it this way also makes it more likely that the fat will survive long-term and that your skin will be smoother, with a more natural buttock profile.

You will probably be required to wear some type of compression garment while you are recovering. The thing to avoid is wearing restrictive or tight clothing that would otherwise damage the newly transferred fat.

What to Expect Post BBL Operation

In-hospital stay is brief after BBL, and you can generally expect to stay 1-3 days. While you may experience some bruising and discomfort, you can expect to be up after a day or two after BBL and fully recovered after 4-6 weeks. Board-certified plastic surgeons in Miami recommend pain medication to ease the initial discomfort and wearing compression garments after the BBL procedure. Some swelling and bruising is normal, and your surgery sites might exude pinkish fluid. All should subside after a couple of days.

BBL Recovery Tips

After your BBL procedure, you will be given a compression garment to wear. This garment is designed to help minimize swelling and support your newly injected fat cells as they adjust to their new location. It is important that you wear your compression garment as directed by your surgeon. You may need to wear it for up to 6 weeks or longer after your procedure.
When sleeping, it is important that you sleep on your side or stomach rather than on your back. This will help prevent putting pressure on your buttocks and ruining the results of your surgery. Try to sleep with a pillow under your stomach or between your legs so that you are not tempted to roll onto your back during the night.
Since sitting puts pressure on your buttocks, you will want to avoid this position for at least two weeks after your surgery. If you must sit down, make sure you use a donut-shaped pillow so that you are not directly sitting on your buttocks. You should also try to stand up and move around every 30 minutes or so to keep the blood flowing and help reduce swelling.
In general, you will want to take it easy for at least two weeks after your surgery. This means no intense workouts, no hot tubs or saunas, and no sexual activity. All of these activities can put too much strain on your body and disrupt the healing process. However, you can walk around as much as you like; just avoid anything that gets your heart rate up too much or makes you sweat excessively.
Drinking plenty of fluids is important for maintaining proper healing after any surgery. Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water and avoid alcoholic beverages while you’re recovering from your BBL surgery. Avoid smoking, overexertion, and eat a healthy diet.
Every surgeon has their own set of post-operative instructions, so it’s important that you follow the specific instructions provided by one of our Miami plastic surgeons. These instructions will be tailored to your individual case and will help ensure that you have a successful recovery.
Are you a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift

Are you a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?​

Women who make the best candidates for a Brazilian butt lift, naturally, are those desiring a more volumized butt, which is considered to be more attractive by many people. So if you want to boost your self-confidence by changing your body in this way, you may make a good candidate for a BBL.

The most important consideration for undergoing a BBL is having enough fat to donate. Most patients have enough fat in areas like their thighs or abdomen. But if you are extremely thin, the surgery may not be successful.

Finally, you must be in good overall health. Although the Brazilian Butt Lift has a solid record of safety, it is still surgery. It is also important that you not smoke because smoking can hinder your recovery and cause unnecessary complications.


Most Common Brazilian Butt Lift Risks

While a BBL gives patients a more toned and youthful-looking rear end, just like with any surgery, there are certain risks involved. The most common risks associated with BBL include infection, fat necrosis, bleeding, fat embolism, and seroma formation.

  • Infection is a rare but serious complication that can occur after any type of surgery. The incisions made during a BBL are usually small and well-hidden, but they can still become infected.
  • Fat necrosis is another potential complication of BBL. This occurs when the fat cells injected into the buttocks die or are reabsorbed by the body. 
  • Fat embolism occurs when fat cells enter the bloodstream and cause a blockage in the lungs or other organs. The risk of fat embolism is the highest during the BBL procedure or a week after. After that, the risk is significantly decreased.
  • Seroma formation is another possible complication of BBL. A seroma is a collection of fluids that can build up under the skin. If not treated properly, a seroma can lead to infection or scarring.

Overall, the risk of complications from BBL is relatively low. However, it’s important to discuss all potential risks with your surgeon prior to having the procedure and to choose a reputable clinic with top-notch Miami surgeons to perform the BBL.




Frequently asked questions

The procedure involves the removal of excess fat from both the upper back and love handles to rebalance contours and reveal a sleeker, healthier look. The removed fat is used to increase the size of the buttocks.

In the hands of a good surgeon, a Brazilian Butt Lift will help in accentuating and maximizing a patient’s curves. When you look at beautiful portraits of female bodies, you won’t see any straight shapes because they are not as appealing aesthetically.

A Brazilian Butt Lift can help with:

  • Flat buttocks
  • Sagging buttocks
  • Small buttocks
  • Misshapen buttocks

The procedure itself does not involve any pain or discomfort, since you will be under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. It is normal to experience some degree of discomfort after the procedure, which can be effectively managed with pain medication.

Dr. Reyes uses precise techniques that result in minimal scars by using only tiny incisions that are almost undetectable when the patient has fully healed.

If you have extremely loose or sagging skin, conventional butt lift surgery may make a better choice for you. Any sagging skin is removed during the traditional surgery. During your initial consultation, your doctor will assess the elasticity of your skin to determine if a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is right for you.

It is possible to reverse a BBL by using a liposuction procedure to remove the injected fat. However, your buttocks would not be expected to return to the precise shape that they were before the procedure.

One thing you need to do is to maintain an ideal weight before your procedure. You don’t want your weight to be fluctuating wildly beforehand.

You should also prepare a comfortable recovery space. Place anything that you will be needing while recovering so that you can reach it easily. You might also want to have someone stay with you for a few days because you will need some extra help.

As mentioned earlier, the best way to have a great recovery from your procedure is to follow your doctor’s recommendations, which may include:

  • Wearing required compression garments
  • Finding the right pillows
  • Pre-planning your meals
  • Undergoing a post-procedure lymphatic massage

Patients often wonder how long it will take before they can resume their normal activities. You may be cleared to sit up for specific intervals a couple of weeks after your procedure. You can began taking short walks and start moving around for around an hour at about week three. After four weeks, you should be cleared for unlimited walking.

Most patients are allowed to return to their jobs within two or three weeks. Until you reach the six-week mark, you may be advised to go easy with exercise and sexual activity. Once you reach the six-week mark, most of your restrictions will probably be lifted.

Different clinics have different price lists, but a BBL in Florida is, on average, $5,000. At Moon Aesthetics, our BBLs start from $3,500. There are a lot of factors that affect the price, so it’s best that you schedule a consultation with a surgeon.

Brazilian Butt Lift is still a procedure, albeit a cosmetic one, and it carries with it risks that come with any other surgery. There is a misconception that BBLs are notoriously dangerous, but this is mostly due to the fact that these procedures are carried out all around the world by non-certified surgeons. Also, a surgeon’s skills affect the rate of complications and risks.

In reality, a BBL is considered to be a less risky procedure, with an even lesser mortality rate than a tummy tuck. Recent studies show a death rate of 1 in 20,000 patients.

In general, you should wait 8 to 12 weeks to wear jeans after getting a BBL procedure done, but that largely depends on your personal healing process. It’s best to talk to the surgeon monitoring your after-care.

It’s important to eat the right foods after BBL surgery to help the fat cells survive and thrive. It’s popularly called Feeding the Fat after a BBL Procedure. Plastic surgeons recommend a diet that is high in healthy fats, proteins, and antioxidants. Think avocados, nuts, seeds, eggs, wild-caught fish, and leafy green vegetables.

These nutrient-rich foods will help keep your fat cells healthy and strong. Avoid sugary and processed foods as well as alcohol, which can damage fat cells and lead to premature cell death. Avoid caffeine and alcohol for the time being. With the proper diet, you can help ensure that your BBL results are long-lasting.

The average cost for a Tummy Tuck and BBL procedure in Florida is anywhere between $6,000 and $15,000, but it can vary greatly. It depends on factors such as where and how much the cells are harvested, whether it is a full or a mini tummy tuck, type of anesthesia, etc.

Out of 100% of fat cells grafted in BBL, around 60-70% survive. The rest is absorbed by the body. After five weeks post-BBL, the fat stops being absorbed, and generally, you can see the amount of fat you are left with. After this period, it’s generally a smooth recovery.
You will feel discomfort for a week or two after the surgery. In the first 2-3 days, you can walk and move around. While the fat needs 3-6 months to settle, the recovery period generally lasts up to 8 weeks. You should take at least a week off work to recover, but it’s best if you take two. If not, you will have to sit on a BBL pillow.
The rule of thumb is to have 2-3 lymphatic massages per week after your BBL procedure for about three weeks. Of course, but you can have more for better results.
