A nice tush isn’t just a trend that will come and go. It is a much desired physical attribute by both men and women. Not only does it instill confidence but it also helps attract the opposite sex. No sexism here, it’s how we are wired. And men, don’t think I’m pointing you out, it’s just as important for the ladies. That said, we are all doing everything we can to get that nice derriere, but sometimes squats just won’t cut it.

It is a common misconception that a Brazilian Butt Lift has to result in huge buttocks. “Although some patients desire this, often patients are looking for enhanced shape, contour, and projection of the buttocks without massive enlargement.” Says Dr. Sam Jejurikar of The Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute. If a huge butt is your heart’s desire, however, that usually is possible – provided you have enough fat to donate for the endeavor.

Who is the best candidate for a BBL?

Ideal candidates for Brazilian Butt Lift are in good shape and have excess fat of the abdomen, back, love handles or outer thighs. The procedure generally takes two-and-a-half to three hours and can be done in combination with other procedures.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Buttock augmentation with fat is more popularly known as the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). With this procedure, Dr. Jejurikar combines liposuction, most commonly of the back, love handles, and abdomen, with buttock augmentation to reshape the buttock.

When will I see my results?

Early results will become apparent in the first couple weeks after surgery, as the swelling begins to subside. However, final results take up to a minimum of 6 months.

Why is it called a “Brazilian Butt Lift”?

Don’t worry, you don’t need to book a flight to Brazil to have this procedure performed. It’s just become the most popular “brand” for a butt lift using a fat transfer. In fact, many of the best “Brazilian Butt Lift” surgeons are right here in the Dallas- Fort Worth area.

How Long Will Results Last?

Great news! The results of your Brazilian Butt Lift can last for your lifetime as long you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Weight fluctuations can have an effect on your procedure. Longer term results may depend on how much of the injected fat naturally absorbs into your body. Injected fat cells may expand or reduce which can cause your buttock size to fluctuate.  

What is the recovery like?

Recovery after a Brazilian Butt Lift can be difficult, if not downright inconvenient. Dr. Jejurikar asks his patients not to sit or lay on their buttocks for ten days after surgery; he also asks them to minimize the pressure by offloading their butt with a rolled towel or blanket for an additional of four-and-a-half weeks (6 weeks total after surgery).
