A Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic surgery that uses the patient's own fat to enlarge and sculpt the shape and size of the buttock and hips. The fat is removed via liposuction, usually from the stomach and back. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Miami BBL specialist, Dr. Askari, performs ultrasound-guided BBLs to give you amazing results without compromising your safety.
Brazilian butt lift, BBL surgery, and butt augmentation are all terms that define one specific procedure: fat grafting to the buttocks and hips to improve overall size and shape. To collect the fat, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Askari, performs liposuction on either multiple areas like a lipo 360 or a single area such as the abdomen. The areas of liposuction are determined based on each patient's needs, goals, and expectations. After the fat cells are safely removed and processed, they will be re-injected into the buttocks via ultrasound-guided technique.
Brazilian butt lift procedures have gained a bad reputation in Miami because of unsafe practices. BBL surgeries carry the risk of fat embolism when done incorrectly. Choosing the right surgeon with proper training and experience who uses the safest techniques and equipment is key.
At Revive Surgical Institute, our surgeon, Dr. Askari, is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive training and experience. He knows about the body anatomy, safety requirements, and risks with every movement he makes. By placing his patient's safety first and with his extensive knowledge, Dr. Askari performs BBL surgery with minimal risks.
He uses the ultrasound-guided BBL technique to ensure additional safety for his patients. This technique consists in using ultrasound during the BBL surgery to have a clear view in real-time of the area where the fat is injected. It prevents Dr. Askari from injecting the fat into muscle, blood vessels, or any other body structures.
BBLs are a natural way to enhance your buttocks but are not for everyone. It's important to talk with your plastic surgeon about your needs and goals to know if this procedure suits you. Knowing what to expect from the surgery, recovery, and outcomes of a BBL will help you prepare yourself physically and psychologically.
Generally, good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift are patients who:
Butt augmentation via a Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL makes your buttocks look naturally round and uses your own fat. In addition, it can reverse the saggy and shapeless appearance brought about through aging by making buttocks look firmer and perkier.
Other benefits of this cosmetic procedure include:
Data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has revealed that a total of 2,872 buttock lift procedures were performed in the United States in 2020. Of these, 88% of the patients are females. In fact, the number of patients who avail of butt lift cosmetic surgery has increased by 92% in the last two decades.
Brazilian butt lifts in Miami are one of the most common surgeries performed, but not all surgeons are equal. Because a BBL is a complex surgical procedure targeting your body and buttocks at the same time, it must be performed by a trained and experienced plastic surgeon in Coral Gables.
We understand how personal a cosmetic procedure is to our patients. That’s why at the office of Revive Surgical Institute, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Morad Askari, takes careful steps to make sure that you can enjoy healthy and aesthetically pleasing results that will boost your body confidence and self-image.
