What is Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?

A Brazilian butt lift is a surgery where a doctor transfers fat from your belly, hips, lower back, or thighs to your buttocks.

The result is more of an hourglass-shaped figure, with larger buttocks. It's not an actual "lift" because it doesn't try to raise your butt. Instead, it increases volume. Simply, it is surgery to make your butt bigger.

Is Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Safe?

The Chair of Plastic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Dr. J. Peter Rubin says, "Based on the survey data, it looked like the death rate was as high as one in 3,000, which is a very, very high mortality rate."

However, over the last several years, BFF, or, gluteal fat grafting has slowly established itself as a safer procedure in the hands of a qualified plastic surgeon.

What to Do First If Considering Brazilian Buttock Lift Surgery

As you’re working through the decision process for BFF or any cosmetic surgery, experts say it’s highly recommended that you meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon for a consultation.

If you are a good candidate for the surgery, you can continue working towards deciding whether or not you’d like to move forward with it. Because a BBL carries more risk than most other plastic surgery procedures, making sure you are a good candidate for this surgery is extremely important.
