Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)


A shapely rear is no longer just a result of great genetics. You too, can have the curvy backside you see women showing off in magazines. Meet the Brazilian Butt Lift! Technically, this surgical procedure is a buttock augmentation combined with a posterior buttock lift. Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) involves the removal of fat from other areas of the body, usually the waist or abdomen, which is then processed and transferred  into the buttocks, creating shape. The lift removes excess skin above the buttocks helping to lift and support the muscles. The result is a more shapely, youthful hourglass figure with full, perky buttocks. Your waistline and other areas will benefit from the removal of excess fat while your butt gets the lift you’ve been missing. You’ll be amazed by Dr. Ortiz’s advanced surgical skills and artistic ability, both of which set him apart from other area plastic surgeons.

Surgical Technique with an Eye for Detail

The Brazilian Butt Lift is an outpatient surgical procedure performed under general  anesthesia. Dr. Ortiz will use small instruments and cannulas to remove fat from your waistline, hips, or thighs. After carefully harvesting the fat, he will process it, keeping only the viable cells for injection via tiny incisions into the buttocks. Using precise technique, Dr. Ortiz will layer the cells, artfully to achieve your desired look and shape.  


Women who wish to increase the size and perkiness of their butts are candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift.  There are no age or body type limitations, but for this surgery to be an option, you must have fatty tissue somewhere on the body. As with any plastic surgery, a realistic body image and realistic expectations of results are important. Likewise, a healthy lifestyle will make recovery faster and more manageable. 

What to Expect

You will go home the day of your surgery. Immediately following your procedure, you will wear a compression garment for six weeks to help support and maintain your new shape. While you can expect most healing to occur in the first few weeks, don’t plan to do any heavy physical activity for up to six weeks.  During the first two weeks of the healing process, you will not be able to sit for extended amounts of time as the fat can be damaged.


Individual results will vary.
