About the BBL
The BBL has become one of the most well-known cosmetic procedures. Enhancing the contours of the buttocks has become increasingly popular in recent years, as many individuals seek to achieve a fuller, more shapely appearance without the use of synthetic implants.
The surgeon removes excess fat from areas of the body where it is unwanted, then strategically injects it into the buttocks to create a more rounded and lifted appearance. This fat is then prepared and transferred to enhance the buttocks’ shape and volume.
Why Choose Autologous Fat Grafting?
Adipose tissue, commonly known as fat, is an incredibly effective resource when it comes to the BBL. Unlike synthetic fillers or implants, autologous fat grafting, which is the process of transferring fat from one area of the body to another, offers a natural solution to buttock augmentation. By utilizing the patient’s own fat, surgeons can achieve a more organic and harmonious enhancement that seamlessly blends with their existing body shape.
Moreover, adipose tissue contains a high concentration of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and growth factors, which possess regenerative properties. When transferred to the buttocks, these MSCs help promote tissue repair and regeneration, leading to improved skin quality and enhanced volume retention. This means that the results achieved with a BBL are not only aesthetically pleasing but also have the potential for long-term sustainability.
Fat transfer from another part of the body is an effective way to get striking, natural-looking results. Research confirms its suitability as an ideal filler because: (1)
- It is readily available
- It is easy to obtain
- There is low donor-site morbidity
- It is cost-effective
- It is biocompatible
If you are unhappy with the current shape of your buttocks, Dr. Sofer can customize a treatment plan to address your concerns and reshape the buttocks with a BBL to better align with your desired aesthetic goals.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for a BBL?
The ideal BBL patient has enough fat in the donor area for a successful augmentation. (2) The best candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift are those who have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. They should be in good overall health and non-smokers, as these factors contribute to a successful surgery and optimal results. Age is not necessarily a limiting factor, given that the individual is healthy enough to undergo the surgery.
Dr. Sofer understands that each patient has unique goals and desires when it comes to buttock enhancement. During your personal consultation at our Fairfield office, he will carefully listen to your concerns, assess your anatomy, and discuss your desired outcome. Using his expertise and experience, Dr. Sofer will tailor a customized surgical plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals safely and effectively.
- Consultation: Schedule a consultation with Dr. Sofer to discuss your goals and determine the most suitable procedure for you. During this consultation, all aspects of the procedure will be thoroughly explained, and any questions or concerns you may have will be addressed.
- Discontinue Medications: As instructed by Dr. Sofer, it is crucial to discontinue the use of blood thinners, supplements, and certain medications before your surgery. This is to minimize the risk of complications during and after the procedure.
- Nicotine-Free Lifestyle: In the weeks leading up to your surgery, it is essential to stop any nicotine use and remain nicotine-free for the duration of your recovery. Nicotine can interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of complications.
- Prescription Medications: Fill prescriptions for pain medication and antibiotics in advance of your procedure. This ensures that you have everything you need on hand to manage any discomfort and prevent infection post-surgery.
- Transportation and Support: Coordinate a ride home and an escort as general anesthesia will be used during your procedure. It is important to have someone with you to ensure your safety and comfort during the initial stages of recovery.
- Time Off: Arrange adequate time off from work and social commitments to allow for proper rest and recovery. It is essential to prioritize your healing process and give yourself the time needed to achieve optimal results.
During the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, Dr. Sofer will carefully harvest fat through liposuction from predetermined donor sites on your body. Dr. Sofer uses power-assisted liposuction (PAL) to harvest fat from other areas of your body, which he injects into your buttocks. He uses the LipoFilter® fat harvesting and separation system to preserve as many of the fat cells as possible. The harvested fat is purified and strategically injected into different layers of the gluteal tissue to create natural-looking, voluptuous contours. By sculpting and reshaping the buttocks, Dr. Sofer can help you achieve a more balanced and proportionate figure.
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure offers several advantages over other methods of buttock augmentation, such as implants. Since the fat used for the enhancement is your own, there is minimal risk of rejection or allergic reactions. Additionally, liposuction performed during the procedure allows for targeted fat removal in areas where you may have excess fat, resulting in improved overall body proportions.
After your surgery, we will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your newly enhanced buttocks. It is normal to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the days following your surgery. You’ll spend 1-2 hours in the recovery room before discharge and then follow a 3-day course of pain medication and muscle relaxants. You must avoid any pressure on your buttocks, and not sit or lie on your buttocks post-surgery. Stand or lie on your stomach or side for all activity except using the toilet. Dr. Sofer assesses your healing throughout the recovery process, and provides each patient with personalized post-operative instructions.
With proper post-operative care and adherence to Dr. Sofer’s recommendations, your Brazilian Butt Lift results can be long-lasting. However, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, to preserve the enhanced contours of your buttocks.
