For centuries, the silhouette of a woman’s body has been synonymous with glamour, elegance, and the power of femininity. This hourglass shape is easily recognized by its pronounced curves, especially in the lower end.
Newport Beach Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery is designed to give women the ideal shape, with added suppleness to the buttock through the use of fat transfer. For those who desire the aesthetic of a fuller, more rounded rear-end or those who want the practicality of being able to wear the clothes they want with confidence, a Brazilian Buttock Lift could be the perfect solution for you.
At his state-of-the-art facilities in Newport Beach, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Keyian Z. Paydar provides a renewed sense of self-confidence, elegance, and quality of life with his outstanding results, artistry, and patients-centered care.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) involves two procedures: liposuction and butt augmentation. First, excess fat is removed through liposuction from a secondary location. Many patients usually choose a spot on their body, such as their abdomen, hips, lower back, or thighs, where they can stand to lose a few pounds of fat. Dr. Paydar inserts a thin tube called a cannula into the area through a small incision and extracts the donor fat cells with a connected vacuum. Afterward, the fat is processed, which separates any unnecessary components from the fat so that it’s just purified fat before injection. Next, the extracted fat is carefully injected into areas of the buttocks to enhance the shape and size.
What Are the Benefits of BBL?
One of the biggest reasons why people choose to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is to improve their body’s proportions. The liposuction decreases the waist girth while the injections visually enhance the size and shape of your buttocks and hips to give you the figure you’ve always wanted with an improved waist to hip ratio.
Aside from making your butt bigger, higher, and shapelier, you’ll also have the opportunity to remove unwanted fat from a secondary location on your body. During your procedure, Dr. Paydar will use some of the fat you already have and then reinject it into your buttocks. Some areas you may want as your secondary location include:
- Lower abdomen
Implants and artificial fillers can create stunning results in their own right, but they don’t always feel or look natural. This is especially true if your body changes later in life. A BBL is the only procedure that uses natural fat deposits from your body to achieve your ideal aesthetic shape. This means the results are both natural in look and feel. Plus, your body shape will change accordingly if you lose or gain weight.
Some clothing items just look better on a bigger, more rounded butt. You may have a pair of jeans, a skintight dress, or your favorite intimates that would look better with a larger bottom. With a BBL, you can accentuate your curves and look amazing in your favorite outfits.
How Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?
Dr. Paydar performs all buttock augmentation procedures at his AAAASF accredited state-of-the-art facility, Newport Aesthetic Surgery Center, under general anesthesia with a board-certified anesthesiologist present for the duration of the surgery. As previously mentioned, a Brazilian Butt Lift begins with liposuction to remove fat from a secondary location of your choice on the body. The fat is extracted, purified, and reinjected into specific points on the buttocks to achieve your desired shape and size. Once Dr. Paydar is satisfied with the results, all incisions are closed and dressed for recovery.

What To Expect From A Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
Following your procedure, you should be able to return to light daily activity and work within 10 to 14 days. However, you won’t be able to sit, lie down, or put pressure directly on your buttocks for about three to six weeks. You’ll need to sleep on your stomach and lie on your stomach, kneel, or stand during daily activities. You will need a posterior thigh pillow to stay off the buttocks. The compression garment, especially designed to not put pressure on the buttocks, will be worn for six weeks as much as possible and an additional six weeks half time for an optimal contour.
After a couple of weeks, Dr. Paydar will give you the go-ahead to sit in a modified position with a supportive “donut” seat or pillow that goes underneath your thighs to prevent harmful pressure on the surgical area. Generally, you can return to sitting as usual about six weeks after your procedure.
A full BBL recovery takes about three months. At this point, all swelling should have subsided, and you can see the final results of your surgical procedure. The results of a BBL last for many years, but it is essential to maintain a stable weight without significant weight loss or gain, as these can affect your results.

A BBL is the lifting and reshaping of a deflated or poorly shaped buttocks with transfer of fat obtained by liposuction of the trunk surrounding the buttocks.
The cost of the BBL procedure will vary depending on complexity, number of areas requiring liposuction, and the length of the surgery. This will be determined during your initial consultation with Dr. Paydar.
Once the majority of the injected fat takes, it becomes a part of the buttock volume. It can increase or decrease in size depending on future weight gain or weight loss.
In the hands of board-certified plastic surgeons, BBL can be a safer alternative to butt implants that have an infection and malposition risks. However some thin patients may not have enough fat to benefit from a BBL and thus maybe a better butt implant candidates.
Most surgeons recommend six weeks of no sitting except for bathroom purposes. Posterior thigh pillows alleviate pressure on the buttocks during sitting.
We recommend sleeping in a prone or on the stomach position. Some who are back sleepers are encouraged to buy mattresses with pre-existing large hole to allow less pressure on the buttocks.
Most discomfort and swelling and bruising lasts about one to two weeks. The remainder of the recovery process is avoiding sitting on the buttocks for three to ideally six weeks. Buttock exercises are encouraged early on during the recovery process.
