Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC

New York Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift is a buttock augmentation procedure popular among our New York City patients. Buttock augmentation surgically alters the size, shape, and contour of the buttocks in men and women. The augmentation can be achieved through fat transfer or, now less commonly, silicone implants.

BBL surgery using the fat transfer method begins with liposuction to remove unwanted fat from a designated area(s) of the body (typically, stomach, waist, and/or thighs). The fat is then processed and re-injected into the buttocks to improve contour.

Traditional Brazilian butt lifts are very aggressive procedures that can turn dangerous when fat is injected below the muscle. In addition, the traditional approach can create cartoonish shapes and unnatural figures in patients. While this traditional BBL procedure is still popular, it is not the method performed at Neinstein Plastic Surgery.


BBL with Neinstein Plastic Surgery in NYC

Tasteful, perky, and youthful buttocks are the goals of Brazilian butt lift surgery at Neinstein Plastic Surgery. It is about creating a better buttock, not just a bigger buttock. Our goal for all patients is to achieve a toned, defined, and athletic look that is especially natural looking in the short and long term.

Modern Athletic BBL

Our goal with the Athletic Brazilian Butt Lift is to help you achieve an athletic, fit physique. We utilize Vaser technology to help melt fat for smooth low trauma removal and J-Plasma technology to assist with skin tightening. Typically, sculpting the waist alone will give an appearance of a youthful perky buttock. However, in Athletic Brazilian Butt Lift surgeries we commonly also perform liposculpting of the abdomen and waist before fat transfer to improve results. In addition, liposculpting of any area of the body can be added to your BBL procedure.

Male Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC

The glutes are among the most powerful muscles in the human body and our male BBL patients typically promote that strength . For male buttock enhancement, we follow two principles:

  1.  Subtraction of the fat obscuring the superior and lateral portions of the buttocks
  2.  Augmentation over the gluteus muscles with natural fat tissue to enhance projection and the muscular shape of the buttock.

What is the difference in female and male buttocks?

Our female patients tend to see a rounder buttock shape, this is why we focus on the middle and outer third of the buttock going into the hip dips.

Men seek a more structured projected square like buttock that promotes strength. We use the same technologies and technique but use a male focused aesthetic for the application of the purified fat.

Recovery & Downtime

We ask patients to limit sitting on their buttock as much as possible for the first three weeks. Expect soreness, bruising and swelling for a week or two.

Most patients are up walking the next day. They can shower the next day as well.

Back to work in one week and the gym in 3-4 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions About BBL

Minimally Invasive Brazilian Butt Lift

Yes it can for the proper patient who is limiting the amount of areas where fat is taken from.

This is typically a 2 hour procedure where we give oral sedation to take the edge off and place numbing fluid into the areas we are sculpting along with numbing fluid into the areas where the fat will be placed.

Male BBL versus Female BBL

Female BBL candidates tend to have a rounder buttock shape, which is why we focus on the middle and outer third of the buttock going into the hip dips.

Male BBL candidates tend to seek a more structured, projected, square-like buttock that promotes strength. We use the same technologies and techniques on men as we do for women, but we use a male-focused aesthetic for the application of the purified fat.

Most commonly the abdomen and the waist.

Older BBL techniques would involve open air fat manipulation and syringe injection. When fat is moved from one part of the body to another it is not rejected like an organ transplant but each morsel or cell of fat requires blood supply. Typically 60-70% of fat injected will receive the blood supply and survive to be your own natural fat that will last long term.

At Neinstein Plastic Surgery we use a closed system for fat processing which means the fat is never exposed to air. It comes out of the body, gets filtered, and re-injected after being washed without ever being exposed to air. We do this for a more pure fat re-injection and a lower risk of infection.

Yes, the major concerns with fat grafting to the buttock are with fat being injected too fast, with too much volume, and too deep (below or into the muscle). We only inject small amounts slowly well above the muscle.

Is Brazilian Butt Lift Safe?

Yes. At Neinstein Plastic Surgery we only inject fat above the muscles; the devastating consequences of buttock surgery occur when fat is injected into or below the muscle.

Many women seek consultation to discuss depressions that are unresponsive to diet and exercise on the outside of their buttocks. These dips, or ‘hip dips’ are depressions between the waist and the outer thigh. Hip dips can give the buttocks an unsightly appearance. Fat transfer can be performed for the hip dips alone or the entire buttock.
