The BBL—or Brazilian Butt Lift—is a surgical procedure designed to enlarge and lift the buttocks. Using the body’s own fatty tissue, a Brazilian Butt Lift can enhance the shape and contour of the buttocks, creating a curvaceous, youthful figure.
Your Brazilian Butt Lift Experience
Dr. Paul Vitenas performs his Brazilian Butt Lift at Houston Surgery Center, his dedicated surgical facility located in the Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery building. Performed with general anesthesia, a Brazilian Butt Lift will take from one to three hours to complete. You’ll be able to return home the same afternoon, though you will need someone to help you as the anesthesia wears off.
To begin, Dr. Vitenas will make several small incisions, each one about a quarter-inch in length, along the well-concealed skin creases of the buttocks. The proper amount of fat is then collected from selected areas of the body using one of several liposuction techniques before it is prepared for reinjection. The prepared fat is then injected into multiple layers of the buttocks, lifting and filling the tissue to the desired size and shape.
During the procedure, Dr. Vitenas can also excise stretched, unwanted tissue along the buttocks, creating a perkier, taut bottom. Once the predetermined aesthetic goal has been achieved, Dr. Vitenas will place dissolvable sutures along the incisions, as well as a compression garment for safe healing. If you have any questions about the overall experience, you’ll be more than welcome to ask them during your consultation.
