At bodySCULPT® in New York City (NYC) our surgeons perform Brazilian butt lift surgery or buttock augmentation with fat transfer/grafting under local anesthesia, creating a natural, rounder shape to your buttocks. Our experienced surgeons in Manhattan, NYC (New York City) perform safe solutions including fat transfer Brazilian butt lift that uses your own fat which can be harvested from other parts of your body such as abdomen or flanks to shape and augment your butt to perfect the size and shape that enhances your body.

Inventors of Brazilian butt lift under local anesthesia

Our plastic surgeons, Spero J Theodorou and Dr. Christopher T Chia are the inventors of the Brazilian butt lift under local anesthesia (BBLULA). This method of performing Brazilian butt lift has been studied and shows that unlike traditional surgeries it reduces your risk and quickens your healing time. Brazilian buttock lift being done in our New York City (NYC) facility is an ideal option for women who don’t want implants and have sufficient fat for liposuction. This safe and relatively short wide-awake procedure minimizes anesthesia-related complications, involves little downtime, and provides attractive, natural-looking outcomes.

Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC involves taking fat from other areas of the body and injecting select, purified donor fat cells into the buttocks. Our surgeons have done numerous procedures, done studies and honed their skills to perform the Brazilian butt lift surgery safely, while paying attention to symmetry and proportion. The right equation of removing and adding of fat makes the difference between effective contouring of the posterior versus just increasing size. Reshaping the surrounding areas of the buttocks in a way that it decreases waist size and improves the projection of the buttocks even before the fat is injected is critical to create a perfect contour.

Stem cell enhanced butt lift surgery

We also perform stem cell enhanced butt lift surgery, which is slightly different from traditional fat grafting. We transfer enriched stem cells to the buttock region which allows for more fat to be stored thus creating an enhanced look. The advantage is that you have harvested stem cells that will grow and thrive to maintain the look and feel for a longer period.

What is Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)?

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a popular cosmetic procedure that can make your buttocks look fuller, rounder and more attractive. There are two steps involved – liposuction for harvesting the fat for injecting into the buttocks, and injecting the purified fat into the buttocks to increase their volume and improve the contour. Fat is taken from other areas of your body where it is in excess such as the hip, abdomen, arms, bra roll area, and love handles. Most commonly fat is taken from the sides and abdomen, which results in a slimmer waistline. When the buttocks are enhanced and contoured, you achieve an hourglass shape.
