Brazilian Butt Lift with Fat Grafting?
Doctor Answers (8)
Yes, fat grafting into and behind the gluteal muscle is possible
Thank you for the question. A Brazilian buttock lift (BBL) involves liposuction of fat where you do not want it and placement of the fat in the buttock area to shape and improve the size of the buttocks. Fat can and is often placed at different levels including within and behind the muscle. Make sure you have a good idea of what you would like to accomplish and seek consultation with several board certified plastic surgeons that are experienced in buttock fat grafting.
All the best,

Fat injection into the buttocks
Yes I typically inject fat mostly inside the muscle. This will improve the chances of fat survival after surgery and better results.
Can fat be transferred behind the muscle in the BBL?
Whenperforming the BBL, fat is injected into many levels including behind the gluteus muscle. This helps with blood supply and fat graft survival.

Fat Placement with a Brazilian Butt Lift
When performing a BBL surgery, fat can be placed on many different levels. I use a micro-droplet technique where small drops of fat are placed in all levels - behind muscle, in muscle, above muscle, in the fat, and right under the skin. I have found that this provides the most natural and long lasting results. This needs to be done by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon who performs multiple BBLs per week.
Brazilian Buttlift: Where is the Fat Injected?
In the Brazilian buttlift, most of the fat is injected in the middle and upper third of the buttocks. Some of the fat is injected to the muscle, and some may be injected on top of the muscle. Some may be injected more superficially to increase volume or to improve dimpling. The fat can also be injected laterally to improve buttock width or apparent hip fullness, if the patient desires.
