Over the last decade, there has been a growing desire for fuller and shapelier buttock profiles, leading many women to explore surgical options to achieve a rounder, higher, and plumper appearance. Some individuals may naturally have flat or disproportionately small buttocks, which can create an unbalanced body contour. Factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, aging, or genetics can also contribute to a smaller, flatter, or saggy buttock appearance.

A Brazilian butt lift in Utah aims to address these concerns and create a more appealing silhouette. Dr. Kevin Rose, a skilled plastic surgeon at The Rose Clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah, specializes in providing state-of-the-art surgical techniques to achieve natural-looking results.

What Is A BBL?

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to enhance the size, shape, and contour of the buttocks. Unlike traditional buttock augmentation techniques that use implants, a BBL utilizes the patient's own fat to achieve a fuller and more rounded appearance. The procedure involves liposuction to harvest fat from donor areas of the body, such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs, which is then purified and strategically injected into the buttocks to enhance volume and improve symmetry.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Buttock Enhancement?

Candidates for a Brazilian butt lift may include individuals who struggle to find clothes that fit well due to their buttocks being out of proportion with the rest of their body or those who desire added curvature for aesthetic reasons. If you experience negative feelings about your buttock appearance and feel self-conscious, buttock enhancement may be an option worth considering. During an initial consultation, it's essential to discuss your medical history and any medications you're taking with your doctor to determine if you're a suitable candidate for the procedure.

The Enhancement Procedure

The primary buttock enhancement procedure we perform at the Rose Clinic is the fat transfer, also known as a Brazilian butt lift.

Autologous Fat Transfer: This procedure involves extracting fat from other areas of the body through liposuction and transferring it to the buttocks to enhance volume, lift, and roundness. This technique not only enhances the buttocks but also provides the additional benefit of sculpting other body areas by removing unwanted fat.

To optimize fat survival, hyperbaric oxygen treatments are often recommended during the recovery period.

Schedule Consultation


Recovery from a BBL procedure typically involves several stages. Immediately following surgery, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in both the donor and recipient areas. Pain medication and compression garments are often prescribed to manage these symptoms and support the healing process. Patients are advised to avoid sitting or lying directly on their buttocks for at least two weeks to prevent pressure on the newly transferred fat cells. Depending on individual healing rates, most patients can return to work and light activities within one to two weeks, with full recovery expected within three to four weeks. It's crucial to follow all post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Rose to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results.


  • Natural-looking results: By using the patient's own fat, a Brazilian butt lift Salt Lake City in can achieve a more natural and harmonious appearance compared to buttock implants.
  • Dual body contouring: In addition to enhancing the buttocks, liposuction during a BBL allows for contouring of other areas, such as the abdomen, waist, or thighs, resulting in a more sculpted physique.
  • Long-lasting outcomes: While some fat absorption may occur in the months following surgery, the majority of transferred fat cells typically remain permanently engrafted, providing enduring results.
  • Minimal scarring: BBL incisions are small and discreet, resulting in minimal visible scarring compared to traditional surgical techniques.


  • Fat absorption and uneven results: Despite careful technique, a portion of the transferred fat may not survive, leading to asymmetry or the need for additional touch-up procedures.
  • Infection: As with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of infection at the incision sites or in the areas where fat is harvested or injected.
  • Changes in sensation: Temporary or permanent changes in sensation, such as numbness or tingling, may occur in the treated areas.
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism: Prolonged immobility during recovery increases the risk of blood clots forming in the legs, which can potentially travel to the lungs and cause serious complications.

It's essential to discuss the potential benefits and risks of a BBL with your surgeon during the consultation process to make an informed decision about whether the procedure is right for you.

Brazilian Butt Lift FAQ

How long does the buttock enhancement procedure take?

On average, the BBL procedure can take anywhere from two to four hours.

Is there a limit to how much volume can be added to the buttocks through BBL?

The amount of volume that can be added to the buttocks depends on factors such as the patient's anatomy, available donor fat (if undergoing fat transfer), and desired outcome. During your consultation, your surgeon will assess your goals and recommend a suitable treatment plan.

Will there be noticeable scarring after buttock enhancement surgery?

The extent of scarring will depend on the specific technique used during the procedure. With buttock augmentation using implants, incisions are typically made in the buttock crease, where scarring can be discreet. In autologous fat transfer, small incisions are made for liposuction, resulting in minimal scarring. Your surgeon will provide guidance on scar care and management during the recovery period.

How soon can I resume normal activities after buttock enhancement surgery?

Generally, patients can expect to resume light activities within a few days to a week after surgery. However, strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks to allow for proper healing. Your surgeon will provide detailed post-operative instructions and advise you on when it's safe to return to your regular routine.
