There may be many reasons to consider a Brazilian butt lift. You may have naturally small buttocks that are out of proportion with the rest of your body, or you may want to enhance the shape and contour of the area.
At Chicago Aesthetic Surgery Institute (CASI) we are the top surgery center in the area for this procedure, and we have many years of experience at safely performing these procedures. Many people come to Rosemont, IL, to take advantage of our Brazilian buttock lift procedure to gain a better figure. We look forward to helping you learn more about this surgery.
What Is a BBL With SAFEBBL™?
A Brazilian butt lift, or a BBL, is a cosmetic surgery that enhances the size or shape of the buttocks by taking fat from one area and transferring it to the buttocks. This can create a fuller and more lifted appearance while also reducing fat in problem areas such as the abdomen or thighs.
At our practice, we can help you achieve more dramatic results through our butt contouring surgery. We can also give you a more subtle lift with what we call the “Barrington butt lift.” This type of procedure, named by us after a nearby suburb of Chicago, can help you achieve natural-looking results with a small amount of increased volume.
SAFEBBL™ is the type of BBL protocol that we offer. We perform Safe Subcutaneous Buttock Augmentations with this protocol to help increase your safety during your surgery. This means that we use specialized tools and techniques that are only available in a few surgery centers across the country.
What Is the Goal of a Brazilian Butt Lift?
At our practice, the goal of any butt augmentation is not just to enlarge the buttocks area but to also create an overall pleasing shape by evening out the ratios of your waistline and buttocks. That is why we use specialized techniques to perform a 360 liposuction of the waistline and/or thigh area to create a smooth, hourglass shape.

What to Expect From Your Brazilian Butt Lift
Consultation for Your BBL
Every BBL surgery needs to start with a detailed consultation. At our practice, we never rush patients in and out because we want to ensure that there is enough communication between us and our patients. We will take a history and do a full physical examination to determine your candidacy for the treatment and to evaluate the work that can be done during your surgery.
We can give you an accurate idea of what to expect from your gluteal augmentation. Since everyone’s body is different, your result may look different from some else’s. But with our experience, we can help you to adjust your expectations to what can be achieved with your body.
During the Surgery
A typical butt augmentation at our surgery center takes between 1.5 to 2 hours. We typically perform these surgeries on an outpatient basis while the patient is under general anesthesia. Our surgeries take place at our JCAHO-accredited surgery facility.
During the first part of the butt augmentation procedure, we will perform liposuction on your abdomen, thighs, or other areas both to help contour your waistline and to harvest enough fat to enhance and augment your buttocks.
After enough fat is harvested, the fat will be cleansed and prepared for injection into the buttocks. The fat is injected into the area until the appearance matches the results that we talked about during your BBL consultation.
After the Surgery
It is important to get plenty of rest after your Brazilian butt lift. You should make sure you have someone who is willing to drive you home and then stay with you through the first 24 hours of recovery. Once you are home, you will need to avoid sitting on your buttocks or laying on your back until the area has time to heal. We will send you home from your butt contouring appointment with oral medication to help with any pain from the procedure.
You can expect to see some results from your Brazilian buttock lift right away. However, it can take up to a year to be able to see your full results.
Choosing a Board-Certified Surgeon With Experience in BBL
When you are searching for a location to schedule your gluteal augmentation, it is important to choose a board-certified surgeon who has experience specifically in SSBA surgery. Many surgeons don’t have the right tools or have not been trained in the right techniques to be able to perform this surgery. New instruments, techniques, and protocols have been developed in the past few years that not every surgeon will have access to.
