What's A Brazilian Butt Lift?
Many men and women in Houston, TX are consulting with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Rolando Morales, about the Brazilian butt lift (BBL). Because it is very difficult to build up your backside by eating certain foods or performing specific exercises, our surgical team can offer you an alternative to reshape your rear the way you want it. A BBL does not use a synthetic implant to augment your buttocks. Dr. Morales is very skilled at performing liposuction to collect fat, purify it, and then reinject it to where you want it most – in the upper quadrant of your buttocks. At Morales Plastic Surgery, you can have a one-on-one consultation for a BBL with Dr. Morales in a private atmosphere. Call our office today to schedule your appointment at Morales Plastic Surgery.
Am I A candidate For BBL?
To be considered for a BBL, you may have flat buttocks. What makes you a great candidate is the amount of fat that you can have liposuctioned from a donor area on your body. You may have extra fat cells on your back, abdomen, hips, thighs, and flanks. Each procedure is specifically tailored and sculpted to meet your aesthetic needs.

Butt Implants and 4d Ab Etching - On September 28th, I underwent a supercharged BBL (400cc fat transfer + 375cc round silicone unders) and 4d ab etching with Dr. Morales. I am now 6 months post op and LOVING my results! The first two weeks were rough and my experiences where comparative with those who just did the traditional BBL.

Amazing Butt Augmentation with Implants - 2 months ago I had a Butt Augmentation with Implants and with fat grafting by America’s Best Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Morales. I am very very happy with my results. I definitely got my boost of confidence thanks to Dr. Morales. He truly is an artist. When I met Dr. Morales I explained what I wanted and he gave me his honest and professional opinion. I felt very comfortable with him and his staff. He answered all of my questions and concerns. I knew I was in very good hands and made the right decision to choose Dr. Morales as my first plastic surgeon. From my consultation to my 2 month post op, I’ve always had an amazing experience. Dr. Morales and his team are kind, professional, and caring. I would like to thank Dr. Morales, Linda, Claudia, nurse Sandra and the ACPS surgery team for taking good care of me. I highly recommend Dr. Morales and his team.
Butt Implants and 4d Ab Etching - On September 28th, I underwent a supercharged BBL (400cc fat transfer + 375cc round silicone unders) and 4d ab etching with Dr. Morales. I am now 6 months post op and LOVING my results! The first two weeks were rough and my experiences where comparative with those who just did the traditional BBL. I went this route because I wanted a bigger lifted booty that I could not achieve in the gym or with just the fat transfer, as I didn't have a ton of fat to begin with. I also didn't want to gain weight and under go a round two. Once my implants dropped and fluffed I knew I made the fridge choice with Morales. Throughout the entire process, he was kind and patient with myself and my husband as we had a ton of questions. The service was 5 Star, and I recommend this procedure and Dr. Morales to everyone who wants permanent results.
I had surgery with Dr Morales on 4/14/22 after losing 80lbs. My procedures include: extended tummy tuck with muscle repair, lipo to back, braline, flanks and my neck. I had a Bbl, and a breast augmentation; silicone implants. I knew right away during my consultation I didn’t want any other physician doing my procedure! He was thorough when examining me, and after I expressed concerns, he was very honest with me about procedures I did not need, and that’s what I love about him. Instead of just taking my money, he explained the why’s, and ultimately that’s something rare to find. His knowledge in all procedures, his bedside manner and great staff made me feel super comfortable from A-Z. Scheduling my procedure was a breeze. Linda, his patient coordinator, was very patient with me when scheduling my procedure, and was very prompt in responding to my emails. I went in for my pre-op appt about 2 weeks prior to my surgery. I saw his staff member Yaritza, who explained what I could expect post surgery, and was even given a bag of post surgery goodies! She was very patient with me when taking my pictures, as this was something that made me very shy. I was sized again for my breast implants to help me decide on my size. He came in with his assistant Claudia to reassure me about my size, discuss my procedure again in more detail and to let me know I was not alone. Going into the surgery center was a breeze! Instead of feeling anxious, I felt so comfortable. I was greeted by young lady named Christine who took my vitals and walked me Into one of the recovery rooms. She was very very sweet. I then saw the nurse Becky who started my iv. She was very knowledgeable and quick. I was seen by dr morales prior to my surgery to confirm all procedures, and have him mark me all up. :) I walked into the OR, and everyone greeted me in. The anesthesiologist was amazing, and heard my concerns about previous anesthesia. Post op days were not as bad as I thought! This was huge for me, as I am a mother of 4 and always on the go! Soreness here and there, but nothing I could not handle. Anytime I had questions, his assistant Claudia was quick to put me at ease!! She answered every message! Definitely exceeded my expectations. I went in for a one week post op, and was seen very quickly after checking in! I was greeted by an assistant named JJ who removed my drain. Very painless and she talked me through the entire thing. She stepped out, and during this time I was seen by His assistant Yaritza, same young lady who did my pre op consent appt. She wanted to say hello, ask how I was feeling, and instructed me on implant massages. Shortly after, the Dr came in with his assistant Avilene and Claudia. He explained what I was cleared to do and explained what he saw during the procedure. I was again, given a bag a post op supplies that I begin to use after week 1. Linda also stopped by to say hello! :) I return in 2 weeks and all I can say is HE IS AMAZING! Definitely, definitely recommend Dr Morales and his entire staff! They make you feel comfortable, at ease, and treat you like friends. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my surgery needs! I hope they get a chance to read this, because they have all been superb.

During A Brazilian Butt Lift
A BBL is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery varies based on several factors, including:
- The location of your donor site
- The amount of fat to be removed
- The technique Dr. Morales will implement
- The size of your buttocks before surgery
The BBL can be combined with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck or breast augmentation. This will add to the total surgery time, as well. Liposuction will be performed first to harvest the donor fat. Common areas for donor fat include the lower back, abdomen, hips, thighs, and flanks. The fat suctioned from these areas will be carefully processed and purified for reinjection into the buttocks. Our surgical team will carefully turn you over in the prone position to begin your buttock enhancements. The upper quadrant of the buttocks will be augmented with your own fat and sculpted. Dr. Morales will use his many years of experience as a plastic surgeon to recontour your buttocks into an aesthetically pleasing shape.
Your BBL Recovery
During the recovery process, it is important for you to get up and move around several times a day. This will help speed up the recovery process and reduce the risk of blood clots forming in the legs. Dr. Morales may prescribe a medication to prevent blood clots in the postoperative period. After surgery, you may often feel somewhat sore, tired, and stiff. Fluid drainage from the incisions, swelling, and mild bleeding are also common.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs
How Long Is The Surgery?
The duration of the surgery is very dependent on how many areas are being treated and the volume of fat removed and transferred. Most patients will not exceed three hours of liposuction.
What Can I Add to a BBL?
The BBL can be a stand-alone surgery or combined with other body contouring procedures. However, there is a limit to how many procedures can be done safely as it relates to surgical recovery and the amount of time the surgery takes. This will all be discussed in your consultation and fat transfer to the buttocks planning sessions.
When Can I Go Back To Work?
Every person recovers at their own pace. The recovery period depends on the number of procedures you have performed at the same time as your BBL. You may need to have fat removed from more than one area to collect enough fat for the look you desire to achieve. On average, patients return to work about a week after having fat harvested. Dr. Morales will give you more details in your follow-up appointments.
