The Brazilian butt lift is a surgical enhancement of the buttocks through fat grafting and liposuction.


Aesthetic surgeons, Dr. Khoobehi, will determine the best technique to use depending on each patient’s unique body type and individual desires. This procedure is ideal for patients who want to adequately fill out jeans or other clothing, but would prefer to use a natural approach. Candidates must have good skin elasticity and they must have enough body fat to extract. Dr. Khoobehi has outstanding natural results and high satisfaction rates.

Surgical Technique

Fat grafting provides subtle, natural enhancement of the buttocks using unwanted fat deposits from other areas of the body. Liposuction is used to remove excess fat cells from areas such as the abdomen, waist, back, arms or thighs. The fat is then processed and prepared for transfer to the buttocks. Three or more small incisions are made in the buttock area through which the fat is injected. The fat is grafted in gradual layers in order to achieve a smooth, natural-looking result. This gives Dr. Khoobehi the opportunity to create an ideal butt shape. All incisions are closed with sutures and are placed in areas hidden under undergarments or bikinis. Patients without the necessary excess fatty tissue for harvesting are not ideal candidates for fat grafting. During your initial consultation, Dr. Khoobehi will communicate all applicable options to achieve your desired look.

During/After Surgery

This surgery is considered an outpatient procedure with general anesthesia at Outpatient Surgical Surgery. The surgery lasts an average of 2 hours depending on the number of donor sites and fat layering needed. After surgery, a compression garment is worn to help with the swelling and also assist in the contouring of the buttocks. Sitting or laying down must be done with the weight mostly on the thighs. Dr. Khoobehi recommends Endermologies (post surgery massage) to be completed at least 5 times after surgery which helps reduce swelling and induce circulation. Final results, after the swelling and bruising has subsided, usually can be seen within 6-8 weeks.

Expected Cost

A Brazilian butt lift will cost around $11,000 to $15,000. This depends on how many areas are used for liposuction to get the required volume of fat. Dr. Khoobehi is known for his expertise and personalized approach in performing Brazilian butt lift (BBL).  He works closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals, ensuring that they achieve the best possible outcome.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs

  • Lumpy Cheeks?

    When done correctly, the result of a Brazilian butt lift should look and feel natural. Dr. Khoobehi is highly experienced in performing Brazilian Butt Lifts. It is very important for those who are considering this procedure to find a plastic surgeon with good background and experience, like Dr. Khoobehi. The results will be affected by the quality of how the fat to be reinstated is selected and purified, and the procedure of how it is injected.

  • Natural Or Synthetic?

    Many patients opt for fat transfers because they feel it is more safe and natural. For some, they are simply not comfortable with implants or a foreign device placed in their buttocks. When choosing whether to go natural or with implants, it’s important to understand the pros and cons to each. The one disadvantage of fat transfers is that the injected fat maybe naturally reabsorbed into the body over time, which means that a secondary surgery could become necessary later on in order to maintain max results. Implants are a permanent solution so patients will need to consider the long-term effects of surgery carefully.

  • Multiple Donor Sites?

    Multiple donor sites for the fat grafting may include the lower backside, abdomen, love handles, arms and the thighs. Liposuction done in these areas usually also helps contour the surrounding areas of the buttocks, which results in a gorgeous silhouette.

  • What If I Gain Weight?

    The ideal candidates for this procedure are those who are at or very close to their goal weight. Both significant weight gain or loss will compromise the results of the surgery. Patients who have had this procedure should stick to a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise.
