What is a Brazilian Buttock Lift?

A Brazilian buttock lift is a type of cosmetic surgery that involves liposuction and augmentation which means taking fat cells from other areas of the body and injecting them into the butt to create a fuller and more superior posterior.

Brazilian buttock lift surgery is also known as Gluteoplasty or butt augmentation.

How BBL Works?

The surgeons use a thin tube called a ‘Cannula’ which is connected to a vacuum for the liposuction process. They remove excess fat from hips, thighs, and abdomen, or collect fat cells from areas such as the belly and lower back with liposuction.

The extracted excess fat is then processed and purified in which the healthiest fat cells are injected into certain points at the butts that create more voluminous and curvy buttocks.

In some cases, patients didn’t get their desired results, so surgeons inject more fat than necessary to meet patients’ expectations and goals.

The buttock lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia (sleep-like state) which means you don’t feel any pain as you become unconscious. The Brazilian lift surgery takes one to four hours to complete.

BBL After 5 Years

A young woman had a Brazilian Butt Lift for $7,000 (5 years ago) but she didn’t like the results and then she went back for a butt lift. At this time she got big and fuller buttocks and now she’s happy with her desirable results.

In this video, she showed her BBL results after 5 years.

BBL Complications Years Later

What causes BBL complications after years? What gives rise to the dangers of butt lift?

Injecting the cannula deep can damage the gluteal region and become deadly if it is not treated immediately. A slight mistake can hit these major structures and cause BBL complications years later.

However, we have listed some common side effects and risks of Brazilian buttock lift below:

  • Soreness and discomfort
  • Bruising
  • Bumps or Lumps
  • Swelling
  • Minor scarring due to the liposuction process (hard to notice)
  • Numbness
  • May cause an allergic reaction

Although these complications of the procedure are part of the patient’s recovery process. However, it may contain some severe dangers and complications even after years if it is performed by an unlicensed surgeon.

Why is BBL so dangerous?

BBL is dangerous due to fat embolism syndrome. It happens when fat cells start to circulate in our body including veins or arteries.

As Brazilian Butt Lift involves injecting fat cells into the buttocks, if you’re fat cells or fat clots injected into the depth (bloodstream) mistakenly by a surgeon these could travel to your lungs and heart, it becomes fatal and can even cause death.

Also, if the liposuction process gets too much or more than necessary, it makes BBL dangerous.

What other causes make BBL so dangerous?

‘Silicone and Fillers’. You might be wondering about how Silicone and fillers can make BBL dangerous.

We all know Silicone and Fillers are approved by FDA and used to enhance breast size and in other cosmetic surgeries.

But they both aren’t approved for Brazilian Butt Lifts. When surgeons don’t find enough fat in your body or when patients don't get desired results, the surgeon uses Silicone, Fillers, and even plastic to plump the derriere.

If Silicone and fillers are injected in blood streams by mistake it becomes deadly or the surgeon’s miscalculated move could lead to irreplaceable and dangerous complications if it is not treated by practitioners.

Brazilian Butt Lift Death Rate

In 2015, when BBL started making headlines, it caused 13 deaths. The postmortem of patients revealed the common causes of death are: fat in the gluteal muscles and fat embolism (fat particles within the microcirculation).

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, from 2011 to 2017, the BBL death rate increased to 3%. From any other aesthetic cosmetic procedure, the Brazilian Butt Lift death rate is the highest which is 1% in every 3,000 patients.

BBL death rate is high among patients 50 years old who undergo gallbladder surgery. The BBL danger is involved with gallbladder deceased, regardless of the risks, but no one has ever succumbed to small buttocks. 

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Brazilian butt lift recovery takes 6 months. For the first two weeks, you’ve to avoid sitting directly on your butt.

Patients return to their normal activities after six to eight weeks of BBL surgery. You may have to take precautions after eight weeks in some cases.

Brazilian Butt Lift Results

These results can last you 10 years or even after 15 years. Over time, after 6 months of surgery, you can feel more fluff in your butt with a more rounded-shaped butt.

Brazilian Butt Lift Cost

BBL is not a low-cost procedure, patients always find fat alternatives to increase their buttock size. The Brazilian butt lift can cost you anywhere from $800 to $14,500. But it can vary and depends on several factors such as how much butt lifting you want, your living area, and the surgeon’s experience.


What happens after 10 years of BBL?
