The buttocks are getting more media attention than ever before. Women of all body types and ages visit Moon Aesthetics to undergo the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure. Even though breast surgery remains the most commonly performed type of cosmetic procedure, BBLs are being performed at an ever-increasing rate.
In fact, the procedures have seen a remarkable 23 percent increase in just the last five years. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé have largely been responsible for the increased interest in this curve-inducing cosmetic procedure.
What is the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?
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
Your Initial Consultation
Before undergoing any type of procedure, you will need to take part in a consultation with your doctor. The main purpose of the consultation is to determine if a Brazilian Butt Lift is right for you and your individual needs.
At this time, your doctor will be evaluating your physical health and inquiring about any existing medical conditions that could affect your candidacy for a BBL procedure. Be sure to tell him if you have medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, anemia, or anything else that could impact your procedure and recovery.
Another aspect of the consultation that your doctor will be interested in is your expectations about the results of your BBL procedure. Although the Brazilian Butt Lift can definitely have a significant impact upon one’s appearance, some people have unrealistic expectations, often driven by social media, and mistakenly believe that they can look just like their favorite celebrity. So it’s important to understand what this procedure can do and what it cannot do.
How long it takes to complete a BBL procedure is very much an individual matter that depends upon the patient size and the number of areas that require liposuction. Generally, a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure takes anywhere from two to three hours.
Is a BBL procedure uncomfortable?
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.
Most patients who have undergone a Brazilian Butt Lift find the required downtime and recovery period to be the biggest hurdles. Like any type of surgical procedure, you will achieve the best possible results if you carefully follow your doctor’s post-procedure instructions as closely as possible.
When it comes to the BBL procedure, transplanted fat is quite delicate; so to avoid the risk of unnecessary complications, and to achieve the volume and shape that you are looking for, you need to resist sitting down.
Here are a few recovery tips to help ensure that you have a speedy recovery with no complications:
Avoid Sitting Down
The transplanted fat is very fragile, so avoid sitting down for anywhere from 10 to 14 days after your Brazilian Butt Lift. One exception is when you need to use the toilet. The fat cells that have been newly transported need time to settle in and incorporate themselves into their new location. If you sit down, they will be under great pressure and have their blood flow restricted. This can lead to shifting of fat cells or even worse, some of them dying, leading to unwanted indentations in the affected area.
In addition to avoiding sitting down for the specified time period, you will need to avoid sleeping on your back. The reason is that your bottom will be under pressure if you sleep in this position. This means that you will need to either sleep on your side or your front while you’re recovering.
Naturally, you may be worried that you will turn over onto your back while you are sleeping. One suggestion to avoid this is to wear a small backpack containing a tennis ball while you are sleeping. As ridiculous as this may sound, attempting to turn over with this arrangement will force the ball to dig into your back, leading to a shift onto your side to alleviate this discomfort.
The best way to ensure that you recover quickly and completely from your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is to carefully follow all of Dr. Reyes‘ instructions. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact his office.
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.

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.
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.
How much is a bbl in Miami?
Although the cost of the procedure varies from doctor to doctor, you will likely be paying between $4000 – $5000 to have it performed.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ
Here are a few of the most Frequently Asked Questions about the procedure:
Will the procedure leave scars?
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.
What if I have loose skin?
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.
Is the procedure reversible?
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.
How should I prepare for my BBL?
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.
What will my recovery be like?
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.
