Get Swimsuit Ready With a Brazilian Butt Lift

By: Dr. Rolando Morales


Summer is around the corner, and many women are looking for ways to get swimsuit-ready. A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) sculpts and contours your buttocks for a rounder and firmer backside. This surgery at Morales Plastic Surgery involves liposuction to remove and purify fat before it is reinjected into the buttocks.

If you want to make a big impact on the beach this summer, consider speaking with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales about a BBL. We have helped countless women achieve their dream bodies in Houston.

What causes a flat backside?

There are many reasons why women have a flat or deflated backside. It could be due to genetics, weight loss, or natural aging. Sometimes, despite diet and exercise, you are unable to achieve the curvature you desire. This can make wearing bathing suits and bikinis uncomfortable and unenjoyable. A Brazilian butt lift can provide the sexy, shapely buttocks you have always wanted.

Where do you take excess fat from?

Dr. Morales first provides an evaluation to determine your candidacy for a Brazilian butt lift in Houston. We ask about your problem areas and desired results. Then, we develop a plan to harvest fat from areas like the lower back, abdomen, hips, thighs, or flanks. We use special liposuction techniques to perform this part of the surgery. BBL patients benefit in two ways: a smaller waistline and a curvier backside.

How is the fat injected?

Morales Plastic Surgery purifies the excess fat in preparation for a Brazilian butt lift. We then carefully administer the fat into the upper quadrant of the buttocks. This provides women with a fuller and more lifted appearance they love. The amount of fat that can be injected depends on your personal goals and how much was harvested during liposuction.

How long does recovery take after a BBL?

Many women plan out their summer vacations around their surgery date. We recommend taking several weeks off from work or other activities to recover. During this time, rest and avoid sitting directly on your buttocks. It is also important to get up and move around several times a day. This reduces side effects and prevents complications, like blood clots.

Morales Plastic Surgery provides plenty of BBL post-surgery guidelines, so patients know what to expect and how to speed the healing progress. We hope that you feel comfortable and confident in your new body as soon as possible.

How long does a BBL last?

A Brazilian butt lift provides natural-looking and feeling results that should last for years. The excess fat cells are meant to provide long-lasting outcomes. However, Dr. Morales encourages patients to maintain a stable weight, so their new curves stay put. Our team can offer additional tips during a consultation and follow-up appointments.

A flat backside can make you self-conscious and prevent you from spending time at the pool or beach. A Brazilian butt lift is a wonderful way to get swimsuit-ready for the summer.
