BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT
LOS ANGELES & BEVERLY HILLS
In the past, liposuction was used strictly to make patients look slimmer. As trends have changed, and with influences from celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, more women are seeking a more curvaceous and voluptuous figure. For this reason, cosmetic patients have increasingly turned to the Brazilian butt lift, or BBL in Beverly Hills. Dr. Ourian, a highly respected plastic surgeon, delivers perhaps the best BBL Los Angeles has to offer.

AT A GLANCE
WHO IS A GOOD
CANDIDATE FOR BBL?
The ideal Los Angeles Brazilian Butt Lift candidate has unwanted areas of fat, typically in the midsection, love handles, bra line and thighs, and wishes to have a fuller, more projected and rounder buttock area. Candidates may have lost a curvier shape due to aging or weight fluctuations or would prefer to change their natural body contour for cosmetic reasons. Before undergoing the surgery, Dr. Ourian will determine whether you have adequate fat storage in unwanted areas of your body to complete the procedure; some patients are simply too lean to be candidates for BBL and are better suited for other treatments.
HOW IS A BRAZILIAN BUTTOCK
Our signature Beverly Hills Brazilian Butt Lift is performed under general anesthesia and using a combination of liposuction and fat transfer techniques. A thin cannula is inserted into the areas where the patient wishes to remove fat through small 5 millimeter incisions, producing nearly invisible scars. The fat is then manually manipulated and suctioned out using the cannula.
After harvesting this tissue, fat is purified and prepared for injection. When this is complete, Dr. Ourian will make several small, hidden incisions in the buttock area before carefully injecting the purified fat, sculpting an aesthetically pleasing shape that remains proportionate and in balance with the rest of your body to ensure the results look natural. Once this process is complete, the liposuction and fat transfer incisions will be sutured.
Depending on your aesthetic goals, a BBL alone may not give you the body contour you’re imagining. It’s possible to pair other procedures with BBL to reach your goals without necessitating multiple surgeries over the course of several months or years.
Brazilian butt lifts are achieved through fat transfer using liposuction, but some patients choose to have more fat removed using liposuction than is necessary to complete the butt augmentation. The most common areas to address using liposuction include the abdomen, back, hips, love handles, bra rolls, thighs, and arms. Undergoing liposuction in multiple areas of the body in addition to your BBL procedure offers a sculpted and contoured look throughout the body.
In some cases, excess fat is not the sole reason you may be missing out on a tight and toned physique. Excess loose skin in the abdomen is often caused by pregnancy or drastic weight loss, and can be repaired with a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck procedure tightens the muscles of the abdomen and removes excess skin, revealing a smooth and athletic-looking midsection.
The goal of a high-quality Brazilian Butt lift is to create a proportionately curvy silhouette, but many feel that both their breasts and buttocks are too small. For this reason, you may choose to combine a breast augmentation with a BBL to increase the size of both areas. Breast augmentations are usually completed using saline or silicone implants, but fat transfer techniques similar to those used in BBL are also available. This is known as natural breast augmentation or simply fat transfer breast augmentation. The goal of combining a breast augmentation and BBL is to create a balanced hourglass silhouette.
WHAT IS BBL
After your procedure, you can expect swelling in the treatment area and some discomfort which can be treated with pain medication. Bruising is also common. You will likely have compression garments to alleviate swelling and ensure proper healing.
Through the special techniques Dr. Ourian employs during your surgery, it has been his protocol is to allow patients to immediately, but gently, sit on their buttocks after a BBL. During the recovery process, it is important for you walk around several times a day. Most patients are able to return to work or other normal activities within a week to 10 days after their procedure, though many find they feel rested after only a few days. Light exercise, such as brisk walking, can be resumed at about a month after surgery. More vigorous activities, especially those that cause bouncing such as running or dancing, should be reserved for four weeks after the procedure. Dr. Ourian will monitor your healing in post-operative appointments and advise when you can return to certain activity levels.
