Brazilian Butt Lift

Augment, Enhance and Shape your Buttocks with BBL surgery

If you’ve tried and failed at changing your body shape, particularly your derrière, a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a cosmetic body shaping and contouring procedure that can augment and shape your buttocks. An expertly performed BBL by Dr. Greg Chernoff can alter and improve the shape and size of the buttocks without implants.


A BBL uses excess fat from your body that is carefully injected into the buttocks to achieve the patient’s desired enhancement.

What Is A Brazilian Butt Lift?

Dr. Greg Chernoff performs a Brazilian Butt Lift Augmentation with fat transferred via liposuction from another part of the body, usually the abdomen, or anywhere the patient would like it removed. Removing fat from one area and injecting it into another area eliminates the need for a buttock implant.

Injecting the fat requires skill and precision to achieve a final result that looks natural, with projection in just the right places, and with even looking butt cheeks.

Are You A Candidate For A Brazilian Butt Lift?

A BBL procedure helps you by addressing genetic factors that determine the shape of your buttocks. While buttocks shaping and toning exercises can help you improve their appearance, they cannot always add the volume and shape that many women desire.

A Brazilian Butt Lift:

  • Adds volume to your body’s curves
  • Adds proportion to your buttocks
  • Defines and shapes your buttocks
  • Reduces fat on other parts of the body

Prior to your BBL surgery, a complete medical history is taken to evaluate the patient’s general health. Dr. Chernoff will describe the procedure and type of anesthesia to be used, and what results might realistically be expected, as well as the recovery process. Each patient’s aesthetic goal is different so a customized treatment plan is developed for you by Dr. Chernoff in your initial consultation.

How Is A Brazilian Butt Lift Performed And What Is The Recovery Process?

Dr. Chernoff performs a Brazilian Butt Lift in multiple steps. These steps are important to ensure that the volume is added carefully to the desire area. The steps include:

  • Marking the areas where additional volume is desired
  • Marking the area(s) where the fat will be harvested from
  • Making small incisions at both the harvest site and the buttocks.
  • Tumescent fluid is injected to further numb the areas and keep bruising and bleeding to a minimum
  • Harvesting fat through liposuction and purifying
  • Injecting the purified fat into the buttocks
  • Closing the incisions

Patients will recover from a Brazilian Butt Lift in as little as a few days after their procedure. The exact healing time will depend on the amount of fat removed and injected. Pain associated with the procedure is mild-to-moderate but is controlled with oral medication. The most important requirement after your Brazilian Butt Lift is you cannot sit directly on your buttocks for at least 2 months. It is important that patients use a cushion when sitting, and avoid long periods of sitting during their recovery period.

Daily showers and antibiotics will be continued to prevent infection. Instructions for the day of surgery include rest and limited activities. Dr. Chernoff will determine when normal activities can be resumed. Swelling, bruising, numbness and over sensitivity around the surgical area may occur, but these conditions are usually temporary.

Preparing for Surgery

Prior to any surgical procedure, Dr. Chernoff recommends that all our patients read our "Patient Guide for Plastic Surgery". The guide explains important points that all patients should think about as they are considering a surgical procedure.

What Results Can You Expect After your BBL Procedure?

An increased volume in the buttocks will be noticeable directly following surgery. The final changes to your buttocks may not be apparent until sometime after surgery, when all residual swelling has gone down and the transferred fat has had the opportunity to settle properly and develop a blood supply.

Dr. Chernoff will realistically explain what type of results you can expect to see following surgery. The vast majority of patients can expect a curvier bottom and improved lower body proportions, which may also improve posture and lower body balance, as well as, making clothes fit better. These results last for many years.
