Buttocks Fat Grafting Before & After Pictures
The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) has become more popular over the last decade. It is a procedure that can be individualized to the specific contours of your buttocks. If your buttocks are flat, projection can be increased. If the width of your upper buttocks is wider than the width of your lower buttocks, fat can be shifted from above to below to give more balanced proportions. The overall shape of the buttocks can be contoured to give a more feminine (or masculine) shape.

A Guide To Brazilian Butt Lift Before And After Photos
Above is our gallery of our Buttocks Fat Grafting Before and After Pictures. The before pictures are on the left, while the after pictures are on the right. All pictures are of actual patients who have had their plastic surgery by Dr. Joseph Mele, MD, FACS, at our San Francisco Bay Area plastic surgery center. While our Brazilian Butt Lift Before and After Photos can serve as a guide to what is possible with cosmetic surgery, your individual results will vary. Five Brazilian Buttocks Lift Before and After Photos are reviewed below in more detail.
Brazilian Butt Lift Before & After Photos - Example #1
BBL Before and After Photos - Example #1: The preoperative problems here are all about the proportions.
Before: Her lower back is wider than her buttocks. The buttocks are concave on the sides. The buttocks lack projection (i.e. they look flat when viewed from the side), especially the lower buttocks, and her overall shape is masculine with a muffin-top.
After: In this case, fat was removed from the lower back to remove the muffin-top and sculpt a more hour-glass waist. Additionally, fat was removed from the upper posterior thighs to enhance the curve and projection of the lower buttocks. Fat was then grafted to the buttocks to fill the lateral concavities, add projection to the buttocks and overall create a more feminine waist and hip ratio.
Brazilian Butt Lift Before & After Photos - Example #2
BBL Before and After Photos - Example #2: Before her BBL the waist to buttocks ratio is inverted
Before: Her waist circumference is larger than her buttocks circumference. Clothes that fit her waist are baggy and saggy over the buttocks. Despite the fullness in the muffin-top area, the upper buttocks have atrophied and are smaller in both width and projection. The lower buttocks have a good shape but are out of proportion with the smaller upper buttocks. These characteristics give a more masculine appearance from behind.
After: Fat was transplanted from the lower back and flanks to the buttocks. The waist circumference was reduced, so a smaller size could be worn. The upper buttocks now match the lower buttocks, and the added volume fits better in clothing, too. The sides of the buttocks were enhanced also to create a feminine shape.
Brazilian Butt Lift Before & After Photos - Example #3
BBL Before and After Photos - Example #3: Brazilian Buttocks Lift combined with a Tummy Tuck.
Before: In some cases, the BBL is combined with other procedures. The most common additional procedure is Liposuction of other body regions; however, in this case, Tummy Tuck fat was also available for Buttocks Fat Grafting. Liposuction of the abdomen without the Tummy Tuck would have left loose skin on the abdomen. Her preoperative shape is up-side-down when compared to Example 2 above. Her lower buttocks is flatter than her upper buttocks.
After: The fat from the Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) was saved and used to Augment the Buttocks. The buttock volume was increased with fat grafting to all regions with the majority of the fat cells placed in the lower buttocks. Fat was also removed from the lower back and flanks to keep the trunk in proportion with the reduced abdominal size. Also visible is the immature Abdominoplasty scar low across the abdomen. It is placed below the waist line so that it remains hidden. Over time, as the scar matures, it becomes less red and less noticeable.
Brazilian Butt Lift Before & After Photos - Example #4
BBL Before and After Photos - Example #4: The waist to hip proportions are good; this case is more about Buttocks Shaping.
Before: Her waist to hip ratio is pretty good before surgery. There is a small amount of disproportionate lower back fat enhancing the muffin-top area, but the lower buttocks appear deflated and squared off.
After: The muffin-top area was reduced with Liposuction, and fat was added preferentially to the lower buttocks to balance the volume and provide a fuller, rounder shape. In this example, the buttocks are lifted by the increased lower buttocks fat grafts, which provide volume, shape and firmness.
Brazilian Butt Lift Before & After Photos - Example #5
BBL Before and After Photos - Example #5: Less back and more backside.
Before: Disproportionate fat is present on the upper and lower back including the muffin-top area. The lateral buttocks are concave. The lower buttock projection is muted by excess upper thigh fat. The plan here was to reduce the disproportionate fat of the back (at the bra line and muffin-top) and remove the disproportionate fat of the upper thigh, which mutes the normal curve of the lower buttocks.
After: The back is smoothed and the lower buttocks better defined by Liposuction. A Tummy Tuck was also performed, providing additional fat for the Brazilian Buttocks Lift. Fat grafting was utilized to increase the size of the buttocks and provide additional projection. In this case, two procedures were staged over a six month period to provide maximal Buttocks Augmentation.
How Much Can My Buttocks Be Enlarged?
Many Brazilian Butt Lift patients are much happier with the way they look both in and out of clothing. The greatest limitation of the procedure is the amount of fat available for transplantation. There is also a limit to the amount of fat that can be placed into the buttocks during a single session. It is important to only place as much fat as will survive to achieve a smooth, supple result. For larger enhancements, more than one surgery may be required.
