CHICAGO BUTT LIFT FAQ

Your Questions Answered About the "Brazilian Butt Lift"

  • Q

    What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

    Not the Same as Buttock Augmentation (Gluteoplasty)?

A Brazilian Butt Lift or “BBL” is a minimally invasive surgical procedure designed to augment and enhance the buttocks to make them look fuller and more voluptuous.

The term “lift” is a misnomer, since the procedure is actually a fat-augmentation or fat-transfer procedure and not an actual lift. A traditional buttock-lift would require cutting and shifting of tissues with long incisions.

A Brazilian Butt Lift on the other hand, requires only tiny stab incisions and works by taking your own fat from one area of the body, purifying it, and injecting back into the buttock and hip area.

  • Q

    Who is a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?

    Do I need a lot of fat?

A good candidate is someone who is in good health, at or near their ideal body weight, and wishes for a more aesthetic buttock shape.  Ideally, the patient should have good skin quality with minimal skin laxity and good muscle tone.  Although liposuction is part of the BBL procedure, it is not a weight loss procedure.  Patients with BMI over 30 will need to lose weight to get under 30 BMI (Calculate your BMI here) to  become a candidate for a BBL.  Patients who have loose skin or muscle laxity around their abdominal area due to pregnancy or weight loss may need a Tummy Tuck to address those issues.  Patients with certain body types (e.g. central obesity or apple shape) may not be ideal candidates for BBL either since those patients carry their fat inside the abdomen (visceral fat) which is not accessible with liposuction.  Finally, any patient undergoing a Brazilian Butt Lift must have reasonable expectations.  Although the BBL can be an amazing transformative procedure, it is a medical procedure subject to surgical, physical, and safety limitations.

  • Q

    Is it possible to get a butt lift without surgery?

    Also known as a non-surgical butt lift...

There is no such thing as an actual butt lift without surgery.  There are exercises like lunges and squats that can strengthen and enlarge the gluteus muscles which may give the buttocks some projection and tone, but the effect is not the same as a fat transfer or implant augmentation.

  • Q

    Does a BBL actually lift my buttocks?

    Technically, the answer is no.

Since a traditional lift requires cutting and shifting of skin and soft tissues, it is a much more invasive procedure with long scars. With a BBL, there are no scars, and no skin or tissue is removed.

In fact, tissue (fat) is ADDED to the area to increase volume and fill the skin that is there. If the area is fuller and tighter, there is an illusion of a lift, hence the term. The Brazilian Butt Lift should be viewed as a body-transformation procedure and not simply a lift!

  • Q

    Where does the fat come from?

    From places you don't want it . . .

The beauty of the BBL is that the fat is harvested from other parts of your body where you have excess fat. In most cases, the fat comes from abdominal or belly fat, flanks or muffin-top fat, and back fat. Fat from the thighs and arms can also be used.

Since harvesting fat from the abdomen, waist, and back area makes those areas thinner, the net effect is even more pronounced when the buttocks and hips are made fuller. So since the procedure uses liposuction to harvest the fat from other areas, in essence, you are getting two procedures in one!

Brazilian Butt Lift Fat Transfer Chicago IL

  • Q

    How long does the fat last?

    This is the cool part...

This is a very common question. The true wonder of this procedure is that it uses your own live fat cells.

As long as those fat cells are kept alive and are happy in their new home, they will live and thrive there providing you with essentially permanent results.

Since they are your own fat cells, they will continue to grow and shrink if your overall weight fluctuates, but they would change proportionately.

  • Q

    How much fat can be injected?

    Enough to achieve an amazing result...

This is a very common question and the answer is not concrete. The amount of fat that can be transferred really depends on your body type and the quality of the fat that can be harvested.

There are safety guidelines Dr. Truong adheres to that limits the amount of fat harvested as well as the amount injected in one procedure, however most Brazilian Butt Lifts will achieve fantastic results while staying within the limits of patient safety.

  • Q

    How long does the procedure take and what is my recovery?

    Take about a week of downtime . . .

Depending on how many areas have to be liposuctioned to harvest the fat, the procedure can take anywhere from 2-5 hours.

Once the procedure is done, you will be in recovery for approximately another hour or when you are considered stable to go home.

You may experience some drainage from the small incisions which typically subsides within 24 hours. You will allowed to shower after 48 hours.

You will be placed into a special compression garment which you should wear for at least 2 weeks. You should plan to take approximately 1 week to rest and recover from your BBL.

  • Q

    I’ve heard you can’t sit after a Brazilian Butt Lift, is this true?

This is not entirely true. As you can imagine, it would be very difficult to not sit at all for two to four weeks.

For the fat cells to have the best chance of survival, it’s important to minimize the pressure to the area. This means not sitting DIRECTLY on the area injected directly for long periods of time.

This can be possible by sitting on pillows, using a soft "BBL" cradle- type pillow, or shifting your weight often if you have to sit. However, since most of the fat for a typical BBL is injected into the lateral hip and upper buttock areas, it’s often possible to sit on the lower buttocks and upper thigh without compromising your result.

Another recommendation would be to sleep primarily on your tummy during the first month.  At Chicago Breast & Body, we will go over all of the suggested recommendations to optimize your recrovery. This will include post-operative care for your BBL, suggested garments, pillows, as well as exercises and training we recommend for maximum, long-lasting results!

  • Q

    Are "Butt Injections" or "Butt Implants" the same as a Brazilian Butt Lift?

    No it is not the same . . .

The term "Butt injections" is a general non-medical term that refers to injection of any substance into the buttocks to make them larger.  There are only a few medically approved substances that can be injected into the buttocks which include Hyaluoronic Acid gels, and autologous fat.  The Brazilian Butt Lift is an autologous fat transfer procedure whereupon a patient's own fat is harvested and then re-injected into the buttocks to increase fullness and give the illusion of a lift.  There are no artificial substances used in Brazilian Butt Lifts.

Brazilian Butt Lifts should only be performed by properly trained, board-certified Plastic or Cosmetic Surgeons.  There are many non-medically approved and dangerous substances being injected by non-licensed individuals at non-licensed facilities which are unsafe and can cause horrible disfigurement or even death.  There have been reports of non-medical silicone, cooking oil, rubber cement, and bathroom caulk being injected illegally in hotel rooms.  These Butt injections should never confused with a Brazilian Butt Lift.  Buttock implants are an entirely different procedure using approved silicone implants surgically placed into the buttocks by a surgeon, but also should not be confused with the Brazilian Butt Lift.


  • Q

    What are the possible risks and complications?

    Minimal risks in the hands of an expert . . .

As with any surgery, there are many potential complications that can arise, however they are exceedingly rare. When done correctly and under well-trained and knowledgeable hands, the risks should be very minimal.

Dr. Truong uses only certified anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists and most procedures don’t require general anesthesia, so the anesthetic risks are minimal.

The common potential complications are skin irregularities or asymmetries in the harvested or injected areas, which may require revision. Bruising and swelling is to be expected and is not considered a complication. More serious complications would include bleeding or hematoma formation and infection which may require immediate surgical intervention. Blood clots can occur during and after any long procedures, but again can be minimized.

Although exceedingly rare, the most serious complication would be fat embolism in which fat can enter the blood vessel and travel to the heart or brain.   This potentially fatal complication should be minimized by not injecting to deep or into the muscle layers and by using blunt cannulas.

This is why it is paramount that the surgeon performing your Brazilian Butt Lift is appropriately trained and experienced in performing the procedure. Even when all guidelines are adhered to, complications can and do occur. Thankfully serious complications are very rare and when done by an appropriately trained and skilled surgeon, BBL’s can be done very safely.

Reviews From Happy Clients

I went to Dr. Truong for breast augmentation. After breastfeeding my now 3 year old daughter, my breast size decreased drastically. I went from a 36 A to a negative A cup.

I am now a 34 C and could not be any happier. He did an AMAZING job! My breasts are full and look very natural. If you are considering any cosmetic procedure, you must visit Dr. Truong!!!

Alexandra Zola

Dr. Truong is the most caring and amazing surgeon there is. His work is done in a very professional manner and to the finest detail possible. I would highly reccomend him to anyone that is looking to have any work done. He performed a tummy tuck and breast augmentation on me-and lets just say that the results were beyond my expectations. I cant say enough about how great of a surgeon he is.

I finally did it!!

After years of wanting to do a BBL i finally did it! Dr. T and his staff were AMAZING! The anesthesiologist Karen made me feel so comfortable and even text me the next day to see how i was feeling. But of course the best part of all in my 5’0 126lb frame is looking banging!! So natural looking and my waist is tiny (and it’s only day 2!) i cannot want to see how i look in the coming weeks!! If your in in Chicago you do not need to travel out of state for good work, Dr. T is your guy!!

I would highly recommend Dr. Truong and staff.

I went to his office for a breast augmentation consultation and knew right away he was the doctor for me. He was honest, understanding and most of all, he listened to me.

I booked my surgery and was excited to finally look and feel my best. The morning of my surgery was finally here! My Husband took me to the surgery center and the staff prepared me for the O.R.

Dr. Truong came in and talked to me a bit, then walked me into the operating room. I woke up feeling groggy, but I had full breasts!

I was in recovery for an hour or so when Dr. Truong came to see me. I was released and went home straight to bed.

By the next evening I was at the mall! I didn't need my pain meds anymore either! I am very satisfied with my results.

I honestly can say that I would do it all over again. It was a very easy procedure for me even being I have never even had a tooth pulled.
