Natural Butt Enhancement

Our Brazilian butt lift in Denver uses the client’s own autologous fat to sculpt and enhance the rear end, creating a more balanced, proportionate figure. The fat is extracted from a donor region of the body, such as the thighs or belly, providing the patient with dual body contouring benefits that make this procedure a popular and sought-after choice.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

During your Brazilian butt lift in Denver, your surgeon will use liposuction to extract donor fat from regions where it is typically abundant — the thighs, stomach, hips, and lower back. This helps to slim and tone these areas, adding a secondary benefit to the procedure. Once the donor fat has been sterilized and purified, it is strategically injected into the buttocks to create more rounded, feminine contours, optimizing your silhouette.

How is the Procedure Performed?

The first step of a BBL is to extract autologous fat from areas of the body where there is an excess, typically the belly, flanks, waist, or lower back. A tiny incision is made, through which a slender metal suction tube known as a cannula is inserted. Smaller cannulas work best to ensure the survival of the fat cells.

Once the fat cells have been vacuumed out, they are then sterilized and purified, readying them for injection into the buttocks. Your surgeon will use the harvested fat to create beautiful, rounded contours that reflect your aesthetic tastes and fulfill your vision of a more youthful, attractive physique.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

After your Brazilian butt lift in Denver, minor bruising and swelling may be present at both the donor and recipient sites. These side effects last about 7-10 days on average. While the body does absorb a portion of the injected fat, the majority of transplanted fat cells will remain for long-lasting enhancement. Additional BBL sessions can help refine your contours according to your taste. 

Unlike augmentation with implants, a Brazilian butt lift performed with natural fat transfer allows most patients to return to work within 3-5 days. Despite this, it can still take 4-6 weeks for clients to resume exercise and heavy lifting. In the first week or so, gentle walks are encouraged to help support healthy circulation and prevent clotting.

A compression garment will be worn for several weeks that helps to minimize swelling and protect your newly sculpted contours. Patients should avoid sitting directly on the buttocks for 6-8 weeks, using a donut pillow instead to keep pressure off of the grafted fat. As recovery continues, it is prudent to avoid sitting for long periods of time.

Where is the fat taken from for the butt lift?

Fat is typically extracted from the flanks, hips, abdomen, and lower back for buttock augmentation.

How long can the fat survive?

Once the fat cells are thriving in their new location and their blood supply is secure, they can potentially last a lifetime.

How much fat is needed to perform a Brazilian butt lift?

This depends on the degree of enhancement sought by the patient as well as the amount of donor fat that is available. It is common to inject 300-1200 ccs of fat per butt cheek during a BBL.

What are the risks of a BBL?

As with any surgical procedure, patients are exposed to risks that include bleeding, infection, and scarring. There is a low chance that the fat may be reabsorbed, negating the cosmetic effects of the procedure.
