Brazilian Butt Lift Lexington, KY

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a body-contouring cosmetic surgery that increases the size and improves the shape of the buttocks. This procedure has gained immense popularity in recent years due to its ability to provide natural-looking results by using the patient’s own fat. 

At Plastic Surgeons of Lexington, we perform buttock augmentation procedures using the BBL technique. The fat transfer procedure adds fullness and definition to your buttocks and provides a natural enhancement method that delivers excellent results. 

If your diligent workout routine has failed to deliver the beautiful butt that you desire, our board-certified plastic surgeons can perform buttock augmentation surgery to help you achieve your desired appearance. We serve patients in the areas of Lexington, Frankfort, Northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, Knoxville, and beyond. For more information, call us at (859) 276-3883 or fill out this form.

About Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery (BBL)

The Brazilian butt lift is a type of buttock augmentation surgery that has overtaken silicone implants to become the preferred industry standard. (1) The BBL is a conveniently efficient cosmetic treatment, as it can provide a slimmer look in the fat donor areas while simultaneously enlarging the buttocks. (2) To remove the fat cells for repurposing, surgeons perform liposuction, a procedure in which a surgeon uses suction to remove fat cells through small incisions. Here at PSL, our surgeons use Lipo 360° to remove the excess fat for BBL procedures. 

Lipo 360°

Lipo 360° is a specialized liposuction technique that targets the entire midsection, removing fat from the abdomen, flanks, back, and sometimes thighs. This has a comprehensive slimming effect, resulting in 360 degrees of improved contour. The results of Lipo 360° can enhance your appearance from every angle. Removing fat from the midsection also helps to accentuate the enhanced size and shape of the BBL. Performing Lipo 360° for our patients’ BBL procedures provides better overall results than buttock augmentation alone, creating the coveted “hourglass figure” many of our patients seek.

Benefits of Brazilian Butt Lifts

The Brazilian butt lift delivers a variety of benefits, including:

  • A more attractive and balanced silhouette
  • A beautiful and curvaceous butt
  • Improved appearance in clothing and swimsuits
  • Results that look and feel more natural than implants
  • Improved self-confidence and boosted self-esteem

Who is a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

If you would like a fuller, rounder, and shapelier butt, you are most likely a good candidate for buttock augmentation. This procedure can address a butt that is flat, asymmetrical, or too small for your body type, as well as sagging in the buttock region that would benefit from added roundness or volume.

As with any cosmetic surgery, you should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure. If you smoke, you must quit before surgery and throughout the recovery period since smoking can have a negative impact on healing and your final outcome.

Since the BBL utilizes a fat transfer technique, you must also have enough fat in another region of your body to harvest. The most common donor areas for this procedure are the abdomen, flanks, back, and sometimes the thighs.

Personal Consultation

At your consultation, you can find out if a Brazilian butt lift is right for you. We will assess the condition of your buttocks and provide individualized treatment recommendations. We will ask you some questions about your medical history, including any past surgeries, medications or conditions. We will also discuss your beauty goals, and provide you with a realistic idea of what a BBL could do for your appearance. We can answer any questions you may have about the BBL procedure so that you can make an informed decision about your treatment. To schedule your consultation, call us at (859) 276-3883 or contact us directly on our website.


Before your Brazilian butt lift procedure, we will give you personalized instructions for how to best prepare. Following these instructions closely will make your treatment process easier, reducing the risk of complications during surgery and increasing the speed of your recovery. We recommend that you change your medicinal intake and certain aspects of your daily routine. You should avoid blood-thinning substances in the days leading up to your surgery. These include anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin and supplements like vitamin E. If you are not already engaged in a healthy and active lifestyle, beginning to eat well and exercise regularly could greatly improve the success of your procedure and enhance your results. 

Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

We perform Brazilian butt lifts on an outpatient basis. When you arrive at the facilities on the day of your surgery, we will begin by administering general anesthesia. This will prevent any discomfort during the procedure.

Your surgeon will perform liposuction to remove fat cells from the donor region. We typically utilize the Lipo 360° technique, removing fat from around your entire midsection. This allows for the precise sculpting of a slimmer and more contoured torso. Next, we purify the fat, ensuring that we only include the most suitable fat cells as part of your buttock augmentation. Finally, your surgeon will strategically inject the fat cells into different regions of your butt and at varying depths in order to achieve the beautiful appearance that you desire. When the procedure is complete, we will bring you to a recovery room and monitor you as the anesthesia wears off. 


You will experience swelling and discomfort during the first few weeks of your recovery. We can prescribe medication to manage any associated pain. We will also ask you to wear a compression garment during the initial stages of your recovery, which will help reduce swelling and facilitate proper healing.

During the first few weeks after surgery, it is crucial that you avoid applying pressure to your buttocks. This will allow the fat to settle properly and ensure the best possible results. To avoid excess pressure, you will need to refrain from sitting for two weeks. We also recommend that you sleep on your side during this period. Typically, patients can resume normal routine activities and return to work after two weeks. However, you should avoid exercise and other strenuous activities until we feel it is safe for you to resume them.

You will start seeing results gradually as your body heals. However, it may take as long as six months before your final results become apparent. The transferred fat cells will take some time to settle into their new environment. Those that successfully settle into your buttocks will remain there permanently.   

Corresponding & Complementary Procedures 

Here at Plastic Surgeons of Lexington, we offer additional procedures that can work alongside and in addition to your BBL. 


As an integral part of the BBL, liposuction is an innovative surgical procedure designed to remove stubborn pockets of fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. Through small incisions, our skilled surgeons utilize advanced techniques to gently suction away excess fat, sculpting your body for a more proportionate and defined appearance. And it’s not only your midsection that can benefit. As well as the abdomen, back, and flanks, liposuction can be an effective solution to excess fat in the thighs, arms, and under the chin (the submental area).

Thigh Lift

Thigh lifts are a cosmetic surgery that can reduce excess fat and sagging skin on the inner and outer thighs. It involves a surgeon performing liposuction to remove pockets of excess fat, as well as making incisions to remove excess skin. It can make your legs appear slimmer and more contoured. The slimming effects of a thigh lift can help to accentuate the results of your Brazilian butt lift.

Are there any non-surgical alternatives to a Brazilian Butt Lift?

While there are non-surgical treatments like Sculptra available that enhance the appearance of the buttocks, it is important to note that these alternatives do not provide the same comprehensive and long-lasting results as a Brazilian Butt Lift. Non-surgical options may offer temporary improvements, but they typically do not address issues such as excess skin or lack of volume in the gluteal region.

How long does a Brazilian butt lift procedure take to complete?

A BBL surgery takes from 3 to 4 hours to complete. Taking initial preparation and recovery into account, you will likely be at our facility for around five hours. 

Do Brazilian butt lifts leave visible scars?

Brazilian butt lifts do leave some visible scars, though they are small. They will be in the areas where your fat is harvested, as well as on the lower buttocks where the fat cells are transferred. These scars will be visually negligible, and they will fade over time. 

Are the results of a Brazilian butt lift permanent?

The fat cells that successfully transfer to their new location within the buttocks will remain there permanently. However, the aesthetic results of a BBL will be susceptible to the changes that aging can have on your body, such as a loss of volume and sagging skin.
