Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jack Peterson, offers patients seeking to enhance their buttocks two different procedures to achieve their body goals: the surgical buttock-lift and the non-surgical Brazilian Butt-Lift (BBL).
While both procedures are popular, many patients ask about which procedure would be the most beneficial for achieving the look they desire for their buttocks.
Buttock Lift: The buttock-lift procedure, also called a gluteal-lift, is typically ideal for individuals who have lost buttock volume and/or tone and have sagging or loose excess skin in the buttock region. Common causes of this include aging, significant weight fluctuations, massive weight loss, prolonged sun and genetics.
Brazilian Butt-Lift (BBL): The BBL is a fat-grafting procedure designed to use excess, unwanted fat from another body area to add volume and shape to the buttocks. Learn more about the BBL here.
