A round, lifted backside is one of the most desired and desirable physical aspects of the female physique. Unfortunately, not everyone is genetically destined to develop a curvy, shapely butt. Women who have always wanted a plump, perky bottom can have a transformative Brazilian Butt Lift in Phoenix with Dr. Craft.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift, commonly called a BBL, is a fat transfer procedure designed to achieve a lifted, full, and round behind. During a BBL, unwanted fat is removed from one area of the body with a liposuction technique. This fat is collected in a closed sterile system and concentrated before it is carefully injected into the buttocks. The result is a sculpted, appealingly full bottom.

Why get a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Women who are genetically prone to having flat, small buttocks and desire a round, full shape have a poor chance of achieving it on their own, even with a great exercise routine. No amount of squats is going to add the plump roundness that a BBL will. 

For women who have lost volume in their buttocks due to weight loss or the natural aging process, a surgical procedure, the BBL, is required to completely restore the lost volume or enhance the original form of the butt into a desirable, perky round shape.

What are the benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift provides a range of benefits for women who want appealing curves, including the following:

  • Achieves attractive volume without the use of implants
  • Results look and feel natural
  • Butt shape and size are customized 
  • A BBL both plumps the bottom and slims the fat harvest area (often the abdomen or thighs)
  • Achieves a lifted, round, full butt
  • Helps provide appealing female proportions and an attractive silhouette

What happens during a Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?

The surgical process of a BBL takes about 2 hours and is performed under sedation. You are completely asleep during the procedure and monitored by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. Dr. Craft will begin with liposuction to harvest the fat. The fat is taken from the predetermined area you decided on ahead of time. Dr. Craft will make very small incisions, then break up the fat tissue and suction out the fat cells. Once the fat is removed, he will purify the  fat cells in a closed, sterile system to avoid contamination or degradation of the cells.

The final step is grafting this purified fat into your buttocks. This step is done precisely and safely to achieve a proportional, lifted, round shape. Critically. Dr. Craft uses both Ultrasound guidance and expansion vibration techniques to assure both the safest and most natural outcomes.

Your recovery period after a BBL

It will take approximately one month to complete your Brazilian Butt Lift recovery period, including about 2-3 weeks of downtime. You will be given a compression garment to wear that will help minimize swelling and ensure your butt heals properly in its new, appealing contours.

It’s important to understand that you won’t be able to sit down directly on your buttocks for about three weeks. Putting your weight on your butt could displace the newly injected fat and have a negative effect on your results. At night, sleep on your side or stomach. In order to allow the fat to settle correctly, do not go swimming, have sex, or otherwise do anything more active than light walking.

You will be able to return to light activities or work within about two or three weeks after your surgery. You will feel more like your usual self by 3-4 weeks after your BBL surgery, but exercise will need to wait until 6-8 weeks have passed and you have an okay from Dr. Craft. 


What will the results be, and how long will they last?

You will see immediate results after your Brazilian Butt Lift, but keep in mind that swelling and bruising will make it hard to see what the final results are just yet. A portion of the transferred fat will not survive, and this is compensated for, which will make the initial results appear bigger than they will ultimately be. Final results will be more apparent after about two or three months when the swelling has faded, and a portion of the fat cells have reabsorbed.

Be Tiny scars will be visible at the liposuction and grafting sites, but they are hard to notice. 

Your final result will be a curvier, full, round bottom and a more toned, sculpted look at the liposuction site. Generally, the results after a BBL are long-lasting. Keep in mind that significant weight fluctuations may affect the size and shape of your buttocks. Maintain a stable weight to ensure your results remain outstanding.

Who is a candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Anyone who has a smaller, flatter butt may be a good candidate for a BBL in Phoenix. Women who have noticed a sagging, drooping bottom after having children or due to age are usually good candidates for a BBL. This procedure is designed for anyone who desires a curvier, sexier silhouette. Candidates should meet the following requirements:

  • Are in good health
  • Have sufficient fat in the donor area to transfer to the butt
  • Are at a stable weight and feel they can maintain their weight
  • Have adequate skin elasticity
  • Prefer a fat transfer over butt implants
