Will I Be Able To Choose My Size And Shape For Brazilian Butt Lift?

By: Austin-Weston


Just like natural butts come in all shapes and sizes, the “perfect” butt means different things to different people. With a Brazilian butt lift, not only can patients achieve a more desirable butt shape without synthetic fillers or implants, but they can also customize certain aspects of the procedure to get as close as possible to their ideal outcome. At Austin-Weston. The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Northern Virginia, our nationally recognized team of board-certified plastic surgeons helps men and women reach their ultimate aesthetic goals with the most cutting-edge treatments and procedures available today, including the Brazilian butt lift. In this blog, you’ll find more information about what a Brazilian butt lift is, how it works, and how much input you’ll be able to give when it comes to sculpting the perfect rear end for you.

How does a BBL work?

The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a fat transfer procedure that aims to enhance the size, shape, and overall appearance of the buttocks by removing excess fat from another area of the patient’s body and injecting it into the butt. To begin, your surgeon will harvest healthy, viable fat from one or more areas of your body via liposuction. Once the fat cells have been isolated and purified, they will be prepared for transfer in syringes. Using a skillful approach and an artistic eye, your surgeon will then carefully inject the fat into your buttocks in a strategic distribution. To ensure the smoothest and most even contours possible, the newly transferred fat will be massaged between each layer of injections. Over the next several weeks and months, the fat cells will establish a blood supply in the buttocks and settle.

Can I choose the amount of fat transferred for my BBL?

Throughout your preoperative appointments, your surgeon will listen to your concerns and goals, review your favorite looks, and ask questions to help determine the most appropriate course of treatment. These may include:

  • What is your ideal butt size?
  • What is your ideal butt shape?
  • Are you interested in a more natural look or more dramatic curves?
  • Which areas are you hoping to have extra fat trimmed from?

Our expert surgeons make every effort to ensure patients are able to achieve a look that is as close as possible to their inspiration or goal photos, though natural anatomy and other factors – such as the amount of excess fat a person has available for transfer – may make it impossible to achieve an exact match. For example, patients who are exceptionally thin and have a low body fat percentage may not be able to achieve Kardashian-style curves due to the lack of native fat available to harvest and transfer. Instead, these patients may be better-suited to glute implants or a combination of treatments and procedures.

Whatever your goals may be, our talented team of surgeons will work closely with you to help you get a stunning look that you can feel confident about.
