BBL in Birmingham, Ann Arbor and Detroit

Lift & Enhance the Buttocks


The Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, is a fat grafting technique that helps patients sculpt and lift the buttocks to enhance the figure. By using the body’s natural fat for this process, the results are natural and incredibly long-lasting.

A Brazilian butt lift treatment uses fat from other areas of the body, such as the thighs or abdomen, to naturally augment the buttocks. This treatment enables patients to enhance the shape and size of the butt while simultaneously slimming the figure elsewhere. Plus, the use of natural body fat ensures that results look and feel completely natural, and even offers the potential for permanent results.

Frequently Asked Questions


How Long Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Last?

By using natural body fat to augment the buttocks, the results from a Brazilian butt lift can be permanent. However, it is important to note that changes in weight and the natural aging process can still play a role in the longevity of your results. We encourage patients to maintain healthy lifestyle habits to ensure their results last as long as possible.

How Much Do You Have to Weigh to Get a BBL?

There is no minimum weight requirement for a BBL, but patients do need to have a certain amount of fat on their body in order to provide enough fat for injection into the buttocks. However, most patients who are within a healthy weight range are good candidates for the BBL procedure. During your consultation, we can help you determine if you are a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift.

How Painful is a BBL?

The BBL procedure is performed with anesthesia, eliminating any pain or discomfort during the treatment process. Any pain that comes from a BBL will occur during the recovery process. However, by using pain medications and following your recovery protocols, you can effectively manage this pain and enjoy a smooth recovery.
