About Brazilian Butt Lift
The so-called "Brazilian Butt Lift", or "BBL," is one of the most rapidly growing treatments in the U.S. and is currently in popular demand by both men and women.
This surgery involves transferring some fat from other parts of your body, removed by liposuction, and injecting it into the buttock area to produce more fullness there. It allows improvement in the size and shape of the buttock area without the need for a buttock implant.
There is an artistic approach to perfecting this procedure, and with many years of advanced training and experience, Scottsdale, AZ plastic surgeon Dr. James Nachbar is able to produce natural, beautiful results at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery.
The best candidates for the the Brazilian butt lift will have significant extra fat in unwanted areas, which can be removed from those areas and injected into the buttock area.
Often, the removal of the extra fat, for example above and below the buttock, can significantly accentuate the overall shape of the buttock area merely by better exposing the buttock itself.
Patients who want a more shapely buttock area but who do not have much extra fat elsewhere may be a better candidate for buttock implant.
Buttock implant, if that is used, can be placed through an incision in the midline, between the buttock cheeks. If a posterior buttock lift or circumferential abdominoplasty has been done or is planned, the buttock implants can be placed through that incision, without the need for additional incisions or scars.
Also, it is also necessary to have healthy skin laxity. If your buttocks has loose, hanging skin, you may require a surgical buttock lift. If you are at a healthy weight, have unwanted fat to extract, and do not want to use a foreign object such as an implant, this enhancement surgery may be an ideal choice for you.

"Labiaplasty - Truth be told, I have always been fascinated with plastic surgery. I truly believe it you want something done and you believe it will benefit yourself in the long run, I see no problem with finding an answer to your solution. Well truth be told, I found the answer to my solution. Since this was indeed my first procedure and taste of the plastic surgery relm, I had no idea what to expect. I was very pleased with how smooth the entire process was. I loved my doctor, the nurses were fantastic and I had a very easy recovery time. I am so happy with my results, I would recommend this procedure to anyone I deemed up for it. I felt very taken care of with no sense of judgment whatsoever. His office is very clean, beautiful and conveniently located. He is full of knowledge and is not one of those money-hungry surgeons who would just recommend a procedure because he wants to get paid. He is the type of doctor that would not perform a procedure on you if he felt that is was not necessary. I felt very secure with this because I knew I made a wonderful decision picking him as my surgeon. 10/10 would recommend and I will be going back in the future."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Mar 15, 2018
"I cannot say enough to thank Dr. Nachbar and his staff for everything they have done for me. From the time of my first phone call I was treated with respect and valued. I requested multiple appointments before scheduling as new questions came up especially as I had consults with other surgeons who would suggest something different. Dr. Nachbar took his time to explain to me the differences and his opinions on what other surgeons had said. My husband works out of state and they had no issue with me facetiming him during consults. I feel like Dr. Nachbar was very realistic in what I could expect from my surgeries and he definitely delivered on what he said he could do. I never felt like he was pressed for time and I never waited around in the office to see him. He was always very prompt and the one time he was late (due to a major accident blocking all roads to the office) he was very apologetic. His staff was amazing and always made me feel welcome. They never seemed annoyed when I had to bring my kids to an appointment. Overall I have and would recommend him to anyone. I never felt like just another number or paycheck I felt valued and respected which is hard to find in the medical profession these days. Thank you again to Dr. Nachbar and his staff for helping me complete my weight loss transformation."- J.G. / Google / Mar 11, 2018

General anesthesia is used for a Brazilian butt lift surgery. It is an outpatient procedure and on average takes approximately 2 – 3 hours, depending on the liposuction involved and whether other procedures are planned.
Liposuction will be used first to extract fat from specific locations on the body such as the abdominal area, hips and thighs. This process of fat removal is performed precisely and safely so the fat tissue is not subjected to open air before it is purified for re-injection.
After this process, viable and healthy fat tissue is harvested and put into syringes. In the final step, the injection transfer occurs, with the extracted fat tissue reinstated in layers with a gentle massage to make sure the surface looks smooth. This phase is repeated multiple times until the desired roundness and shape has been achieved.
What to Expect
Following a Brazilian butt lift, you will be released home to rest. Keep in mind there are two areas that need recovery time — both the areas where the fat was extracted and the augmented area. Both areas will have incision care needed.
Patients should try their best to not place unnecessary weight, and especially shearing forces, on the rear end for approximately 2 weeks following surgery to give the transferred fat the best chance of survival in its new location.
After the swelling has gone away, you will be able to see the improved contour of the buttock, both because of the fat transfer and because of the removal of the surrounding fat.
