Male BBL New York City

Brazilian Butt Lift is a body contouring procedure that enlarges and changes the shape of the butt and hips with fat grafting.  It is also called BBL for short.

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves removing unwanted fat from various parts of the body – commonly the abdomen, flanks, and back – and then injecting it into the butt and hips to create a rounder, fuller backside and hips.  The Brazilian But Lift has become the fastest growing plastic surgery procedure and is now one of the most popular procedures.

Well-endowed celebrities and social media images have fueled the demand for buttock contouring with fat grafting, or a Brazilian Butt Lift.

What is a Male Brazilian Butt Lift?

Like all plastic surgery procedures, the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery is most commonly performed on women. But, if you are a man, and looking for a Brazilian Butt Lift, you are in the right place.  About 20% of Dr. Schulman’s Brazilian Butt Lift patients are men. Since Dr. Schulman has performed many thousands of BBLs since 2007, that means that there have also been a lot of men!

During a male Brazilian Butt Lift, liposuction is performed to remove fat from a part of the body where it’s not wanted. In men, these areas are usually the abdomen and flanks, or the “spare tire”.  These are areas that are often resistant to diet and exercise, so even men in superior physical condition complain of this extra fat. The fat is processed to isolate the healthiest and most viable fat cells. Those fat cells are then injected into specific areas of the buttock and hips to add volume and create more curves. You will get the benefit of both the liposuction AND the fat transfer.

The results of the procedure will depend on what your specific desires are. Perhaps you want a fuller and perkier butt, or you are looking to feminize your shape. You will discuss this with Dr. Schulman during your consultation, so that the right plan can be made for you.

Male BBL vs Female BBL

A brazilian butt lift is a brazilian butt lift. This means that the procedure involves liposuction to remove fat and then injecting that fat into certain areas of the body. It may seem that if a surgeon knows how to do a Brazilian Butt Lift on a woman, they can easily do it on a man. Well, it’s never that simple. There are specific differences between men and women as it pertains to a BBL. These include:

  • bone structure
  • muscle structure
  • location of donor fat
  • desired shape

A surgeon who specializes in male BBLs will understand these nuances and be able to perform the appropriate procedure.

Candidate for Male Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

Male BBL surgery can bring satisfaction and enhanced confidence to various patients. However, like any surgical procedure, it may not suit everyone. The extent of benefits can vary among individuals.

You might be an appropriate candidate for male BBL if you meet the following criteria:

  • Desire to augment buttock size
  • Wish to enhance fullness and projection
  • Generally maintain an active and healthy lifestyle
  • Possess adequate fat in other body areas for redistribution
  • Lack any medical conditions that could pose risks during Brazilian Butt Lift surgery
  • Can allocate the necessary time and rest for post-operative recovery
  • Maintain realistic expectations

Male BBL Preparation

There are several things you will need to do in preparation for your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery. First, you should make sure you are healthy and maintain a normal weight for you. This will require a visit with your medical doctor for a full medical clearance and blood testing.

We want to make sure you are free of any medical problems that may place you at unnecessary risk. You should make sure to let Dr. Schulman know about any medications that you are taking, to be sure that they will not interfere with anesthesia or cause any issues for you.

Several medications and over-the-counter supplements and vitamins may cause increased swelling or place you at increased risk for bleeding. You must also stop smoking or using any nicotine-containing products. This includes e-cigarettes and vapes. These will increase your risk of complications and can decrease the survival rate of your fat transplant.

Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Implants 

If you’re weighing the options between butt implants and a Brazilian butt lift (BBL), here’s the scoop: A Brazilian Butt Lift employs fat grafting to contour your buttocks, resulting in a rounder, fuller appearance. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon extracts fat from areas such as your abdomen or thighs through liposuction, then injects it into your buttocks.

Compared to butt implants, a Brazilian Butt Lift typically offers a more natural look and feel, along with a potentially lower risk of complications.

Questions and answers about Male BBL

What is the recovery time for a male BBL?

Typically, recovery from a BBL spans from two to six weeks. Post-surgery, you’ll be required to wear a specialized compression garment to provide support to your reshaped buttocks and minimize swelling. This garment should be worn consistently until six weeks after the operation.

Does a BBL feel real?

BBL outcomes appear and feel natural because they derive from your body’s natural fat. Through liposuction, excess fat from areas like the hips, waist, or thighs is extracted and then utilized to enhance the buttocks during a Brazilian butt lift procedure.

What areas are liposuctioned?

Basically, any place you have fat that you don’t want, can be liposuctioned. This is most commonly the abdomen, flanks, and back, but may also include virtually any other area.

How long does a BBL last?

This surgery transfers your own fat cells to a new location in your body, where they grow their own blood supply. About 30% of the fat cells will not be able to grow a blood supply and will die. This death occurs during the first several weeks, and poses no threat to you. The cells that survive, will remain forever. As a result, the results will be permanent if you maintain your weight over time. Weight gain could cause your butt and hips to expand, and weight loss would, conversely, cause those areas to shrink. Some changes over time are to be expected, as all human bodies undergo a normal aging process, but BBL is designed to be permanent.

Do straight men get BBLs?

Absolutely, heterosexual men can undergo BBL procedures. The aspiration for enhanced body contours and self-assurance transcends any specific gender or sexual orientation. BBL serves as a cosmetic option available to all individuals striving to attain their desired aesthetic.

When can I exercise again after Male BBL?

You will be bruised and swollen for several weeks after your BBL procedure. Most people are able to resume gentle exercise about 3-4 weeks after the procedure and can take a few weeks to return to normal exercise.

What if I smoke cigarettes?

Nicotine is harmful to newly transplanted fat cells. This means that if you smoke cigarettes or use other nicotine products like e-cigs or vapes, then you may experience more than the usual 30% loss of transplanted fat cells. You should stop all nicotine products 4 weeks prior to surgery and for 8 weeks after surgery.

How is a BBL on a man different from on a woman?

There are several anatomic considerations to consider when performing a BBL on a male patient. This includes understanding the underlying bone and muscle structure.  It is also important to consider the desired result and whether or not you want to have a masculine or feminine shape.

If I am too skinny for a BBL, should I gain weight?

Dr. Schulman strongly opposes weight gain simply to create excess fat. If you are thin, and gain weight simply to qualify for Brazilian butt lift, or give you more fat to work with, your results will likely not be long-lasting.

If you subsequently lose weight and get back to your original weight, you will end up losing the fat that you previously gained and your butt and hips will shrink.
