What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian butt lift has become one of the most rapidly growing surgical procedures in the U.S. and is currently in popular demand by both men and women. This butt enhancement surgery offers individuals a natural way to obtain a rounder and shapelier buttocks without using an implant. Significant weight loss, aging, gravity, and genetics can lead one to have flat and unshapely buttocks. Today, a rounder, more voluptuous rear end is desired more than ever. Using your own fat, the Brazilian butt lift adds fullness to the patient's buttocks area to create a rounder look. The process is accomplished through a uniquely specialized fat grafting and transfer process, which utilizes liposuction to remove unwanted fat pockets from a targeted area on the body and then reinstates it into your backside (rear end). There is an artistic approach to perfecting this body contouring surgery. With many years of training, experience, and learned skill, plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen is able to garner natural, gorgeous results at his practice in Beverly Hills, CA.

What are the benefits of a Brazilian butt lift?

There are many benefits to a Brazilian butt lift, including:

  • Creating your desired volume and shape of your buttocks
  • The reduction of fat from the area it is being pulled from
  • Natural results
  • Your optimal outcome without the need for a butt implant
  • Looking and feeling better in your clothes

Posterior buttocks lift right side only - he finally fixed me - Hello, I wanted to share my experience with Dr. Katzen & the team. I am beyond grateful I found him. Dr. Katzen and his team are amazing. From scheduling my surgery to my recovery, I was always treated with good care. Dr. Katzen always made me feel comfortable such a sweet caring person and very humble. I had a BBL done in 2015 by a famous Doctor and my outcome wasn't what I thought it would be. I came out with an asymmetry issue :( My right side of my buttock was bigger and saggy, I also didn't help my situation by gaining weight after being depressed about it. I went to two different surgeons to try and fix my problem the first one suggested liposuction with laser tightening treatment, but that didn't work I felt like my right buttocks sagged even more. So I left it alone and continued with life. I ended up getting pregnant had my baby and I lost weight, well I felt like I was sagging more. So I had a Posterior buttocks lift with another surgeon, well guess what I was left with the same issue one side was bigger than the other. at that point I was distraught. I felt helpless and mad at myself for not doing things right the first time. I finally found Dr. Katzen the only doctor that took the time to go over everything he didn't rush me or judge me and listen to my concerns. I don't live in California so I had a consultation over the phone with him, but he made me feel so comfortable and happy that he would be able to help me. I traveled there for my surgery and during my, in-person consultation he went over step by step every detail of my surgery. I am so thankful for your professionalism, kindness & for just listening to me. You fixed me finally after all I had been through Dr. Katzen was the only one that did it right! I don't have to walk around self-conscious about my body, I don't have to cover myself with sweaters around my waist in 100° weather. I can finally be out in public with my family without having them be prisoners of my mistake. Just some advice if you get surgery do it right the first time, don't let social media fool you find someone professional and with lots of experience like Dr.Katzen! Thank you again Dr. Katzen & Team!

Feeling Myself Again After Silicone Removal from my Buttocks - I am hoping my review can help someone else out. Five years ago, I didn't make such a wise decision when I agreed to accompany my friend to her procedure to have raw silicone injected into her buttocks. They all talked me into getting it done too (for a discount) and I agreed. Initially, my buttocks looked good. It was nice and full. Over time, I started feeling pain in my buttocks. My butt became disproportionate, red, and lumpy. Of course, I became very concerned and did some research. Thank goodness I found many videos of Dr. Katzen talking about the dangers of raw silicone injections. He talked about the different ways he could remove it. After consultation with Dr. Katzen, I had the silicone removed from my buttocks with him. Dr. Katzen said the silicone moved to different parts of my body, which was so wild to hear. So very grateful to find a specialist like Dr. Katzen that understands silicone removal. I feel so much better now. I plan to return to Dr. Katzen to have buttock implants in the future.

Silicone Injection Removal then Buttock Implants - I wish I knew then what I know now about raw silicone injections. Hopefully, my story can prevent another person from getting raw silicone injected into their buttocks. I got severely ill and it took my PCP doctor many tests to finally figure out it was due to the silicone injections in my buttocks. My doctor referred me to Dr. Katzen to have the silicone removed from my buttocks and it resolved my issues. In a few months, after I completely heal, I will be coming back to Dr. Katzen to have him do buttock implants.

Silicone removal then BBL - so fortunate to have found him - Eleven years ago, I made the horrible decision of having silicone injections in my butt. I regretted that decision so badly. Fast forward to the end of 2021, I got Dr. Katzen to remove the silicone from my buttocks. After months of having my body heal, I returned to Katzen to have a Brazilian Butt Lift. This is one of many of Dr. Katzen's specialties. I'm so fortunate to have found him.

Results are as good as some of the most high priced specialists in the city - Although this review is for Botox i need to give you a rundown on why i choose Dr Katzen I have always had an incredible experience with Dr Katzen. I have had a tummy tuck, breast lift, BBL plus both an arm lift and a thigh lift since 2017- and I’m not a massive weight loss patient. He's just that good. He Probably has more experience than anyone else in Los Angeles with these lift procedures This past summer wearing shorts for the first time in 20 years was truly life changing. Freeing. And tank tops without a “light sweater” on top to hide my arms when it’s 100 degrees outside- priceless. I wish i would have seen him sooner- like in my 20s- alas he wasn’t around yet :) . . So kind and patient and talented. Why i never turned to him for Botox and filler is a mystery. In November i got Botox from the very knowledgeable Talia in his office who is good at everything including post surgical care . Her results are as good as some of the most high priced specialists in the city. I’m also ready for my 2nd Mobius 8 session- great results. . He numbs us twice which really is necessary. He will always do what is necessary to keep you looking good and getting there as pain free as possible. . Great Dr. Great office.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR  a Brazilian butt lift?

Candidates for the Brazilian butt lift will be evaluated to confirm they are right for this treatment. The first consideration is to measure and make sure there is adequate fat on the body to remove for the transfer process. If you have low body weight or have limited fat to remove for the transfer, you, unfortunately, may not be a good fit for this treatment. Moreover, it's crucial to have healthy skin laxity. If your lower body has loose and sagging skin, you may benefit better from a surgical butt lift. If you're at a good weight, have the right amount of fat to extract and transfer, and do not want to use an implant, this procedure may be a terrific option for you.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING a brazilian butt lift

General anesthesia is used for a fat transfer surgery of this nature. The Brazilian butt lift normally qualifies as an outpatient procedure and in most cases takes around 2 – 3 hours (this depends on the quantity of fat that is being extracted and reinstated). Liposuction will be performed first to remove unwanted fat from predetermined locations on the body, such as the lower back, upper thighs, stomach, and flanks. This method of fat removal is performed at the highest quality and safety. The fat tissue is protected from the air because it's purified in a closed and sterile centrifuge system. It's during this time the highest quality fat tissue is carefully harvested and placed into syringes. The final step is the injection phase in which the healthy fat tissue is reinstated layer by layer followed by a gentle massage to ensure the surface is even and smooth. This step is repeated multiple times until the desired result has been achieved.

About Us

HOW LONG IS RECOVERY AFTER a Brazilian butt lift?

Following a Brazilian butt lift, you will be sent home to recover. It's important to keep in mind that there are two areas that need to be monitored — where the fat was extracted and your enhanced buttocks. Both areas will have bruising, require incision care, and cause some discomfort. Patients should try their best to not place weight on the buttocks for around two weeks following surgery. As soon as the swelling has gone away, your results will be visible. Typically, the full outcomes of your treatment will be seen about 4 – 6 weeks post-op. Your backside will look curvaceous and shapelier. Even better, the body parts that had liposuction can make your result appear even more dramatic, especially if liposuction was implemented on the hips or lower back/flanks section.

Shape Your Rear

The Brazilian butt lift procedure is so popular because it provides women and men with the chance to achieve the round and shapely buttocks they have always wanted. With the world around us focusing in on a healthier, round backside, the Brazilian butt lift has quickly become one of our specialties at J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills. If you are looking to attain an enhanced fullness to your buttocks and are seeking a natural alternative, we invite you to contact our Beverly Hills, CA office to set up an appointment with plastic surgeon Dr. Katzen.

Should I get implants or a fat transfer?

To improve the shape and size of your butt, you can choose butt augmentation with either implants or a fat transfer (the Brazilian butt lift). During your consultation, Dr. Katzen will explain both options and help you decide which best fits your body and goals. He will also examine your body to locate the best areas that would benefit from liposuction (typically the thighs, back, or stomach). If you have a low body fat percentage, you may not be a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift.

How long will my results last?

While some fat may be reabsorbed after the Brazilian butt lift, most of the fat will remain in your buttocks for years to come. To maintain your results, you should keep your weight steady because significant weight gain or loss will alter the results of your procedure. This is why Dr. Katzen highly recommends you be at or near a healthy, stable weight before your Brazilian butt lift so it's easy for you to maintain.

How can I recover faster after a BBL?

If you want to minimize your healing time after a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Katzen or a member of his team will give you post-operative instructions and tips. You will need to avoid sitting on your butt for at least two weeks as the area heals. Dr. Katzen suggests you buy a donut-shaped or nursing pillow that allows you to sit so the pressure is on your thighs instead of your butt. Short walks and light stretching can improve your blood circulation and decrease inflammation. Dr. Katzen may also recommend a lymphatic drainage massage to help your body heal.

Will a Brazilian butt lift remove loose skin?

The name of the surgery can seem somewhat deceiving because it isn't truly a butt lift (gluteoplasty). A surgical butt lift is a procedure that addresses excess skin along the backside. If you are concerned about moderate to severe excess skin on your buttocks, you may want to pair a butt lift with your Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Katzen can go over your options based on your goals and physical exam during your consultation.

Can I combine a Brazilian butt lift with other cosmetic procedures?

Combining a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) with other procedures is not uncommon and can often lead to more comprehensive body contouring results. Dr. Katzen frequently performs BBLs with tummy tucks, breast augmentations, or liposuction in other areas to achieve a more harmonious body silhouette. During your consultation, Dr. Katzen will discuss your aesthetic goals and evaluate your overall health to determine if combining procedures is safe and beneficial for you. 

What are the risks associated with a Brazilian butt lift?

As with any surgical procedure, a Brazilian butt lift comes with its set of risks and potential complications. Dr. Katzen is committed to ensuring his patients are fully informed about the risks involved, which may include infection, scarring, asymmetry, or dissatisfaction with the final outcome. Dr. Katzen will discuss these potential risks with you during your consultation and will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure.
