Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a popular surgical procedure that uses your own fat (unlike skin excision butt lifts or buttock implants) which is then placed in the buttocks to gain volume, create symmetry and shape to your buttocks. Many patients have concerns regarding their appearance, especially the projection of their behind. Over time, people may develop excess or sagging skin around their buttock region, have a non-projected, flat or asymmetric buttocks. This can develop due to gravity, genetics, weight loss, or the normal aging process.
During this procedure, liposuction of diet and exercise resistant fat taken from other areas of your body will be harvested and injected into the buttocks region. This will make the area appear fuller, less wrinkled or saggy, and give patients the appearance that they’re looking for.
Did You Know…?
Many people attempt to lose weight using diet and exercise. This attempt is often successful, and people feel significantly healthier losing this excess weight; however, many people have sagging skin after losing this weight because the skin was stretched out during the period their weight was higher. Many people have concerns about the appearance of their skin after losing this weight, and a BBL procedure can help to correct these cosmetic concerns.
Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of questions are discussed before the surgical procedure?
Dr. Dragotti D.O. will want to consider everything regarding a person’s past medical history to ensure that the procedure can be safely performed. The patient’s reasons for having the procedure and the patient’s expectations are discussed to make sure that everyone is on the same page. The patient’s medical conditions will be reviewed to ensure that surgery is safe. This includes allergies and prior medical treatments. The patient’s current medications, use of alcohol, and tobacco use will also be reviewed.
How is the procedure performed?
Intravenous (IV), or general anesthesia is used to place the patient to sleep during the procedure. While every procedure is tailored to the patient’s individual needs, liposuction of an area, such as the abdomen or waist, is performed first to harvest the fat. The fat is then injected manually with small tubes ( cannulas) into the subcutaneous fat and muscle to create an aesthetically pleasing result. of The excess skin and fat will be removed from the area. A clean dressing will be placed over the area to keep the area sterile. Patients will see the results after the procedure, but the final appearance will take some time to develop.
