About Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian Butt Lift is performed using fat from your own body. The procedure is broken into two phases. First, your autologous fat will be collected using liposuction. Common fat donation sites include the abdomen, the hips and waist, and the thighs. This has the added benefit of slimming down and improving the contours in this part of the body. By removing fat from areas around the buttocks, the augmentation is more pronounced. (1)
The Wells Johnson HVP System
Your collected autologous fat will be processed through the state-of-the-art Wells Johnson Volume Precision fat graft system. It is a complete, start-to-finish fat grafting technology that will purify the fat and make it safe for injection. This system enables high-efficiency fat transfers, which reduces treatment time and optimizes fat transfer viability. The surgeon then strategically injects the fat throughout the buttocks to create natural-looking enhancement. Using this method, the added volume achieves a more lifted, curvaceous buttocks shape.
Patients will need to take up to two weeks off from work to complete their recovery following Brazilian Butt Lift. Your body will accept the transferred fat over the weeks after your procedure, resulting in a more full, smooth, flattering buttocks. The results will last for years! (2)
Benefits of BBL
Why is the BBL so popular? Our patients choose the Brazilian Butt Lift because:
- It completely transforms the buttocks.
- ABS customizes every procedure to individual needs.
- The results look and feel natural.
- There are no foreign substances and no allergic reactions.
- The procedure slims down another area of the body in the process.
- Patients look and feel great for years afterward.
Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Butt Implants
In the past, butt implants were a popular way of improving the size and shape of the buttocks. While implants are still an option and the results can be flattering, they are an artificial form of augmentation and thus come with a different set of risks. Risks that come with implants include infection, scarring, nerve damage, unevenness, and implant migration. Implant rupture is also a concern that may pose a threat to patient health.
Buttock implants can be a viable option for very thin patients. Overall, however, Brazilian Butt Lift poses fewer risks and achieves results that are impressive and look more natural.
Do I have enough fat for a BBL?
You may think that there is not enough fat on your body to perform Brazilian Butt Lift. However, you may be pleasantly surprised! ABS surgeons specialize in artistic anatomy. Achieving an ideal form is about much more than simply the amount of fat that is transferred to the buttocks. The ABS surgical team will be happy to help you find the buttock augmentation method that’s right for you, no-matter your body type.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Right for Me?

- Your buttocks are sagging, asymmetrical, or you have recently lost a significant amount of weight, you are likely a good candidate for BBL.
- Your butt is smaller or flatter than you would like, you are likely a good candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift.
- You are struggling to achieve your desired buttocks shape through fitness.

Patients should discontinue the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, and other similar drugs at least two weeks before their procedure date. If you smoke, refrain from smoking or using any other tobacco products for at least two weeks before your procedure.
To accomplish the most comfortable recovery and the most impressive results, plan ahead to take adequate time off work. You will want to keep pressure off your buttocks as much as possible during this period. Set up a comfortable recovery space at home where you will have snacks and entertainment on hand. Consider purchasing groceries and other necessities before your procedure date.
A friend or family member should be available to drive you home from your procedure. We also require patients to arrange for someone to stay with them for at least the first night and day following their procedure to start the recovery process in the smoothest way possible.
Brazilian Butt Lifts are performed under local anesthesia. The procedure will be completed within 1.5 to 4 hours, depending on your individual goals and the extent of fat that will be transferred.
The surgery is broken into two steps. First, the surgeon performs liposuction in your chosen fat donation site. To perform liposuction, they will make one or two small incisions that will be easily concealed in the natural contours of the body. Tumescent fluid will be introduced into the body which causes the fat to swell and makes it easier to remove.
Additional body contouring technologies like VASER may be applied during the procedure to achieve the best fat removal result. Fat will be collected for transfer and processed through the Wells Johnson HVP fat transfer system to prepare it for safe use. ABS surgeons will artfully slim and contour this part of the body to improve your physique and make the added buttock volume more pronounced.
The advanced fat transfer technologies employed by ABS mean smoother, natural-looking outcomes for our patients. Our board-certified surgeons artistically place your own fat to achieve your desired buttocks shape and size.
Our highly-trained medical staff will monitor you before you are released to begin your recovery at home.
Most patients will need to take 7 to 10 days off from work following their Brazilian Butt Lift. In 6 to 8 weeks, patients can resume strenuous exercise. The treatment area will be tender following the procedure, so patients should not sit directly on their buttocks for at least two weeks. All patients will receive personalized recovery instructions following their BBL surgery to help them experience an ideal recovery. These instructions will cover the best methods of treating any post-procedure discomfort.
ABS surgeons are amongst the top-ranked in Colorado. If you have questions during your recovery, our staff is available to help you at any time.
Your body will accept the outcome of your BBL over the weeks following the procedure, adjusting to its final contours within four to six.

Why are BBLs so popular?
The appeal of BBL surgery lies in its ability to reshape and augment the buttocks using the patient’s own fat. This procedure involves the transfer of excess fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, to the buttocks. By carefully sculpting and contouring the buttocks, we can create a more rounded and lifted appearance that enhances the overall proportions of the body.
