You can’t write about cosmetic surgery and not mention on of the most popular procedures ever: Brazilian Butt Lifts!
Brazilian Butt Lifts, also known as a buttock augmentation, is a cosmetic procedure performed all over the world. In fact, over 28,000 people had a BBL in the U.S. in 2019 alone. If you follow New Life Cosmetics on social media, then you’re no stranger to this procedure. We frequently post patient results on our Facebook and Instagram!
Patients – both men and women – choose to get this procedure for a variety of reasons.
A BBL produces a fuller, more rounded buttock for those who have always been flat, small, or have lost their desired shape. BBLs are common in large part due to the fact that the buttock area can be a hard place to naturally achieve desired results through healthy eating and exercise alone.
The ideal candidate for a BBL is…
already in good shape and is close to their desired look. They have tried alternative solutions (like butt-focused exercises) before and haven’t seen extensive results. Some patients might be satisfied with the size of their buttocks, but not the symmetry.
As with our other procedures, you should be in good health, not be at risk for excessive bleeding, and should not smoke.
Although a BBL is a surgical procedure that comes with risks, it is a commonly performed procedure that you should not be afraid of.
To start, Dr. Lee will take time during your initial consultation to assess your specific needs and determine what you are looking for. Famous people who have had BBL’s, like Kim Kardashian, is what many people think of when they think of a BBL. However the majority of patients who come to Dr. Lee, don’t desire to have the butt size of Kardashian. They often want a more athletic look.
Regardless of your body type and desires, Dr. Lee will work with you to create a custom solution that works best for you. You will also receive procedure preparation instructions and recovery instructions during this visit. If you have any questions about the procedure before then, feel free to reach out to us on social media!
A BBL can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours depending on the amount of liposuction that is performed.
After surgery, you will notice drastic results. It’s important to note that you will still be swollen for a period of time and will not see final results immediately. We urge you to walk around immediately after surgery to reduce your risk for blood clots and to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for 6 weeks after surgery so that the transferred fat remains in your buttocks. Most patients return to work after 1 week of recovery.
Dr. Lee sees all the patients the next day after surgery. He will remove the bandages and you can shower after these bandages have been removed. Remember that everyone is different and recovery times and progression is not the same for everyone. The times stated are typical for healthy individuals healing from this surgery.

While not everybody is the same, a BBL at New Life Cosmetic Surgery and Wellness Center produces some pretty awesome results (not to toot our own horn or anything… but look at these results!)
Don’t forget… we do BBLs for men too! You can find a recent male BBL procedure on our Instagram!
