brazilian butt lift

A Brazilian butt lift is a combination of liposuction with the transplantion of the harvested fat to the buttock region in order to enhance the overall shape and size of the buttocks. In this case, Dr. Mosca is using the fat as a graft within subcutaneous tissues for volume.

is a Brazilian butt lift right for me?


Volume will be increased in the buttocks by adding fat.


The flattened areas that are seen with aging or genetic hip dips will be made more full and rounder with the addition of fat to the area.


Typical patients are looking for expanding the volume in their hips or buttocks to increase volume and appearance in a specific area to expand the buttock projection.

How is a Brazilian Butt Lift performed

The technique involves fat extraction with SAFE Liposuction, processing of the fat, and micro re-injection of fat droplets.

How Much Fat Will Need to Be Transferred?

This will depend on your individual circumstances, including the results you’re looking for and how much fat you have available to transfer.

Recovery Time?

The recovery for a Brazilian Buttlift (BBL) varies by what the patient is referring to:

  1. Pain - pain is subjective but is most likely gone by week 1-2.  The pain relief is accelerated when getting consistent post op lymphatic massage.

  2. Exercise/Activity - You are not allowed to exercise or engage in strenuous activity for 4-6 weeks based on recovery

  3. Sitting down on your buttocks - No sitting for 2 weeks AT ALL.  After the first two weeks you can sit on a “BBL” pillow for weeks 3-4.  No direct sitting for at least 4 weeks.

  4. Garments - you will leave the OR in a compression garment and continue to wear garments daily/nightly for 2-4 weeks and a total of 3 months daily.


Dr. Mosca requires lymphatic massages post-operatively starting day 1 postop and continuing for at least 1 month.  Most patients who want successful results have at least 12-15 massages over the course of 1 month.


Garments should be worn consistently for 2-3 months postoperatively, starting with a low compression garment and progressing to a higher compression around 1-2 weeks.
