Brazilian Butt Lift in Beverly Hills


Many people wish they could take stubborn fat from one area of their body and use it to add volume to another area. Body contouring with Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) surgery in Beverly Hills, CA, allows patients to do just that. Dr. Charles Lee specializes in Asian plastic surgery and understands the unique characteristics of Asian anatomy to achieve the ideal butt contours.

The BBL procedure uses a fat transfer technique to add volume to the buttocks and create natural-looking contours. By removing fat from troublesome areas and repositioning it in the butt, patients can enjoy more flattering body contours and a more balanced aesthetic.

What Can a Brazilian Butt Lift Do?

Add Volume to the Buttocks

Your genetics largely determines where your body stores fat, and some people naturally have a more flat butt. Those with more lean body types may also notice a lack of fat in the buttock area. The Brazilian Butt Lift focuses primarily on relocating excess fat to the buttocks to add volume and provide a naturally full look and feel.

Reshape the Butt and Hips

The Brazilian Butt Lift can fill contour irregularities like hip dips (depressions on the hips) and improve a butt with poor shape. The fat is strategically placed during the BBL procedure to smooth areas of concern and achieve fuller, more attractively shaped hips and buttocks.

Slim Areas With Excess Fat

The Brazilian Butt Lift offers the added benefit of slimming target areas of the body. Liposuction surgery removes stubborn excess fat from areas like the abdomen, thighs, and hips. The fat is purified and then transferred to your butt. This allows the Brazilian Butt Lift to serve the double purpose of body contouring and providing you with your best butt.

Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure


To ensure your comfort during the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, general anesthesia will be used.


Liposuction is used to remove excess fat from the desired area. A small incision is made, and a thin cannula is inserted into the skin. The fat is loosened and then gently removed from the body.

Fat Transfer

The removed fat is then purified and prepared to be injected into the buttocks. Dr. Lee carefully and strategically injects the fat throughout the buttocks to add fullness and improve the shape of the butt.

What Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery Like?

Following your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, you will be asked to wear compression garments to aid in healing and help to promote the development of your new contours. It is normal to experience some bruising, swelling, and soreness immediately after the procedure. You may be asked to avoid prolonged sitting for a few weeks following the procedure, as this can affect how the fat settles. Most patients can return to normal activity after about two weeks.

Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Leave Noticeable Scars?

The Brazilian Butt Lift does not result in any noticeable scarring since it only requires very small incisions that are discreetly placed. Unless you have a pre-existing condition that makes you prone to excess scarring, these scars should fade fairly easily with time and fading creams.

How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in Beverly Hills?

Your preferences, volume of fat removed, number of areas treated, and anesthetic selected will affect your liposuction price. These options can all be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Charles Lee for an accurate price estimate.

Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Painful?

During the procedure, anesthesia will be used to ensure your comfort. Following the procedure, you will experience some bruising and soreness for the first few weeks that can usually be handled with prescribed medications. Using specialized pillows to relieve pressure while sitting on the buttocks can help as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I go to a plastic surgeon who specializes in working with Asian body types for my Brazilian Butt Lift?

For Asian patients, a plastic surgeon who specializes in Asian plastic surgery will understand the unique skin type and anatomy of your body. This can help them minimize scarring and produce better results because they know how your skin’s elasticity and other structures will react to the procedure.

Am I a candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

You may be a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift if you:

  • Would like to increase the volume of your butt
  • Would like to improve the shape of your butt
  • Want more slender body contours
  • Are in good overall health
  • Do not smoke
  • Have set realistic expectations for the procedure

A consultation with Dr. Lee will allow him to examine you and discuss your concerns to find out if a Brazilian Butt Lift is right for you.

When will I see my Brazilian Butt Lift results?

In the months following your procedure, the fat in the buttocks will continue to settle and take the desired shape. Some of the fat injected into the buttocks will be absorbed into the body, and so there may be slightly less projection than what you will see in your initial results. Dr. Lee takes this into consideration when determining how much fat to transfer.
The results of a Brazilian Butt Lift are long lasting because the transferred fat cells that remain in the butt after a few months are generally permanent. Your results may be affected by fluctuations in your weight.
CoolSculpting® is a great way to trim excess fat and improve curves without surgery, which makes it a great follow-up procedure to target residual fat in liposuctioned areas or other areas of concern.

Will the Brazilian Butt Lift give me an hourglass shape?

Although the hourglass shape may be considered ideal and highly desired, very few women can achieve this shape naturally. Breast augmentation surgery combined with a Brazilian Butt Lift can increase the size of the breasts and butt while creating a smaller waist. This allows an hourglass shape to become more visible, even if you are not naturally curvaceous.

What is the difference between the Brazilian Butt Lift and butt implants?

Many people wonder how a Brazilian Butt Lift is done and how it differs from butt implants. The BBL procedure uses the patient’s own body fat to augment the buttocks rather than silicone butt implants. By using body fat, BBL patients can avoid implant complications and create a more natural look and feel. Butt implants also require larger incisions on the buttocks to be inserted, while the Brazilian Butt Lift uses very small incisions for the fat injections.

What are the risks of Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a safe and effective way to perform a butt augmentation. However, as with every plastic surgery procedure, there are some possibilities for risks and complications such as:

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Excess bleeding
  • Infection
  • Pain
  • Excessive scarring
  • Asymmetry

Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions on how to prepare for your procedure. Following Dr. Lee’s instructions closely can help reduce your chances of experiencing any complications during and after your procedure.
