No “Butts” About It: Why the BBL Continues to be Popular in Miami


Beautiful backsides are everywhere these days. The headline-grabbing behinds of Hollywood celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, the Kardashian sisters, and Beyoncé have people in Miami, FL, pondering the possibilities for their posteriors. With the Brazilian butt lift, a shapelier silhouette can be created while also boosting your overall confidence. This procedure uses a patient’s own fat, which is extracted via liposuction from other areas of the body. Once purified, the cells are transferred through injections into the buttocks to build sexy curves and enhance the derriere.

An extremely popular cosmetic procedure, more than 24,000 Brazilian butt lifts were performed in the U.S. in 2018. However, misconceptions about it persist, namely that the rear end will look disproportionately large for on body as a result. According to world-renown, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso, this rarely occurs. In fact, for most patients, the goal is usually to boost one’s self-confidence in their appearance by lifting and enhance the bottom, making it look smoother and more toned. As with any cosmetic procedure, Miami patients must be able to maintain realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure.

An expert in the fat transfer process, Dr. LaGrasso possesses vast knowledge and experience performing multiple Brazilian butt lift procedures every week. He can craft artfully sculpted contours so that women and men in Miami can attain the sexy, curvy behind that they desire. He explains why this transformative procedure continues to be in high demand.

Brazilian butt lift vs other augmentation procedures

When compared to other procedures designed to augment or improve the appearance of the booty, the Brazilian butt lift tends to produce more natural-looking results. For those in search of dramatic curves, as well as patients who are not considered good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift, the behind can be boosted with implants. However, it is important to know that a risk exists for these silicone devices to shift once they have been placed. Implants may put pressure on the nerves in the legs and there is a chance that the body ultimately will reject them, requiring that they be removed. Also, since implant surgery usually is more taxing on the body, patients may experience a more lengthy recovery period.

Some Miami, FL patients may require a surgical butt lift rather than the fat transfer process associated with a Brazilian butt lift. A surgical butt lift is typically recommended to remove excess skin as well as tighten sagging skin that remains on or around the derriere of patients following the loss of a significant amount of weight.

Big results from the Brazilian butt lift
One of the great benefits of a Brazilian butt lift procedure is that it also helps to contour other areas of the body. During this outpatient procedure, liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat from areas such as the abdomen, hips, back, and thighs, leaving those areas with a leaner and more defined look as a result. The suctioned fat cells are then purified and separated, so that only healthy fat cells that can survive the transfer process are reinjected into the buttocks, creating that desired shapely contour.

Only small incisions usually are necessary for board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso to perform a minimally invasive Brazilian butt lift. Which means little opportunity for scarring. In most cases, Miami patients can return home soon after the surgery is complete.

A two-for-one procedure

Liposuction is used to extract the fat that is injected into the behind. As part of a Brazilian butt lift, other areas of the body where stubborn fat persists, such as the lower back, abdomen, thighs, and waist, can be slimmed. This may result in Miami patients gaining an overall more contoured appearance without the need to undergo multiple cosmetic surgery procedures at a later date. Calling upon his experience, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. LaGrasso can create a sexy hourglass figure for patients who desire a more voluptuous shape. In most cases, an improved sense of self-confidence also can be experienced by Miami patients soon after their Brazilian butt lift procedure.

Recoveries are faster

In general, the recovery period following a Brazilian butt lift is short, requiring only a few days of downtime. It is not unusual for patients to experience some soreness in areas where fat cells were extracted with liposuction. Dr. LaGrasso may provide you with compression garments to wear as the body adjusts to its new-and-improved shape, which usually takes a couple of weeks. Most Miami patients receive the green light to resume regular activities soon after surgery and can expect to experience the optimal, long-lasting results of their Brazilian butt lift within 3-4 months.

Balancing things out

When it comes to Brazilian butt lifts, it is not uncommon for patients to think that outstanding results are only achievable by injecting large amounts of fat into their behind. However, in this case, more is not necessarily better. Given his vast expertise in the Brazilian butt lift and the fact that he performs multiple Brazilian butt lift procedures out of his plastic surgery office in Miami, FL each week, Dr. LaGrasso can safely and precisely sculpt the buttocks, as well as the areas in which liposuction is used to extract the fat for injection, including the lower back, thighs, and flanks. The combination of procedures produces well-balanced, eye-catching results that most patients prefer.

A natural process

Many Miami-area patients appreciate the fact that there are lower risks are associated with

Brazilian butt lifts than with other types of backside augmentation procedures. This is due largely to the fact that a patient’s own fat cells are used to enhance the behind. Following their injection into the buttocks, the purified, healthy fat cells typically continue to thrive and survive as long as patients continue to employ a healthy diet and exercise routine. This improves the odds that Miami patients will enjoy natural-looking results for years to come.

More effective than exercise

It’s rarely a breeze to build a bigger, more beautiful butt with just exercise alone. Men and women may perform countless lunges, squats, and other targeted exercises to enhance their backside but finding the time in your schedule - as well as enough energy - to accomplish this may be easier said than done. It is tough to beat the speedy, effective, and significantly sculpted results that can be achieved with a Brazilian butt lift.

Everyone loves a lifted butt

Sure, the Brazilian butt lift has gained favor among female patients in Miami. However, it may be surprising to learn that men are equally as impressed with the outstanding impact that the procedure can have on their physique, especially when previous exercise efforts have failed to produce results. A patient’s gender is irrelevant when it comes to the ability of the Brazilian butt lift to contour and enhance the behind so that a more sculpted backside can be enjoyed.

Do you dream of having a bodacious backside? Although not everyone is born with a shapely, celebrity-style behind, it has never been easier to get one with a Brazilian butt lift. World-renown, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso can produce a fuller, more contoured derriere that is sure to enhance and improve your figure and help you feel more confident about your appearance.
