Will I Get To Choose My New Shape For BBL Surgery?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


If you follow pop culture and social media influencers, you have more than likely noticed the growing trend – no pun intended – of round, curvy, plumped-up butts. Celebrities and A-listers everywhere are flaunting this sexy shape, which can, unfortunately, be exceedingly difficult to achieve naturally. In fact, many Hollywood stars have admitted to having cosmetic surgery to enhance their rear ends. One of the most popular and exciting procedures for filling out your butt and getting a dramatic, yet natural-looking, shape is the Brazilian butt lift. Board-certified plastic surgeon and BBL expert Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, along with the knowledgeable team at VIP Plastic Surgery, are proud to offer the revolutionary Brazilian butt lift procedure in Las Vegas, NV to help men and women hoping to get a fuller, sexier backside. Learn more about how BBL works here, including what results are possible and whether your ideal butt shape is realistic.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

Chances are good that you have heard of Brazilian butt lift surgery, or BBL, but you may not know exactly what it is, what it does, or how it works. While its name may be somewhat confusing, a Brazilian butt lift is not a traditional “lift” procedure – such as breast lift or thigh lift – which involves skin removal and skin tightening. Instead, BBL is technically a fat transfer to the buttocks, used for the primary purpose of butt enlargement and/or buttock reshaping.

How does BBL work?

During BBL surgery in Las Vegas, Dr. Khorsandi will begin by harvesting fat from one or more areas of the patient’s body via liposuction. The fat is then purified in a specialized centrifuge and prepared in syringes for the next stage of the procedure. Using precision, strategy, and an artistic eye, Dr. Khorsandi will then carefully inject the purified fat into the buttocks in a series of thin layers, meticulously massaging between each layer to ensure a smooth, even, stunning new contour. Following the procedure, patients will be able to return home under the care and supervision of a trusted loved one to begin their recovery. Some level of swelling, bruising, and discomfort is to be expected and may last for about 1 – 2 weeks, but these symptoms can be relieved with medications and other recommendations given by Dr. Khorsandi.

What shape will my butt be after Brazilian butt lift surgery?

One of the most exciting advantages of BBL surgery is that patients are able to closely achieve their ideal butt shape in most cases. Common requests for BBL butt shapes include:

  • Round
  • Plump
  • “Kim Kardashian” shape
  • Athletic
  • Bubble butt

Unlike butt augmentation with gluteal implants, BBL allows the surgeon to manually sculpt the patient’s desired buttocks size and shape. However, it is important for patients to have realistic expectations for their results and understand that even when performed by an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon, there are limitations on what can be achieved with BBL. For example, petite women with little excess fat elsewhere on their body may not be able to achieve as dramatic of a size increase as they may be imagining. On the other hand, patients with a sagging buttocks or markedly loose skin on the butt may be better suited to a traditional butt lift rather than a BBL. Factors that may impact a patient’s ability to achieve a certain look or shape with BBL include:

  • Amount of excess fat available for transfer
  • Current butt size or shape
  • Body type
  • Skin tone/laxity
  • Proportions
  • Waist size

During your initial consultation for Las Vegas Brazilian butt lift surgery, Dr. Khorsandi will carefully evaluate your anatomy, discuss goals, and help determine whether your ideal outcome is a realistic possibility. Depending on the nature and severity of your concerns, Dr. Khorsandi may recommend BBL surgery, silicone butt implants, or another procedure. Oftentimes, a combination of procedures, including BBL plus liposuction to trim the waist and further accentuate your buttocks, is a fantastic solution.
