Plastic surgery is a meticulous art, focusing on each detail to enhance your natural beauty. Consider Brazilian butt lift (BBL), for example. It takes the perfect blend of expertise and the latest technology to get those safe, stunning results. In this post, I’ll discuss my methods to create unsurpassed BBL outcomes for my patients, including the use of ultrasound BBL techniques.
What Is a BBL?
A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) enhances the size and contour of the buttocks using your body’s own surplus fat. The procedure harvests fat from another area of the body—typically the waist, tummy, hips, or thighs—through liposuction. This harvested fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks for a fuller, rounded appearance.
BBL is a 2-in-1 procedure. Not only does it sculpt the buttocks, but it also contours the areas where the fat is harvested to give you that sought-after sleek, curvy look.
Perfecting BBL: The Ultrasound Advantage
Destin Plastic Surgery’s SAFE BBL is performed under ultrasound guidance, which uses real-time imaging to allow precise placement of fat grafts into the buttocks for aesthetically pleasing results. This approach provides an important safety measure. It ensures fat isn’t injected into the muscle layer, minimizing potential complications, such as fat embolism.
Advantages of the ultrasound-guided versus traditional BBL approach include:
Enhanced Safety: Using ultrasound to guide gluteal fat transfer reduces its risks. After some highly publicized BBL complications, The Aesthetic Society, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and other professional plastic surgery organizations created several safety advisory panels. Their resulting recommendations advised surgeons to use real-time ultrasonic guidance during the procedure to improve its safety. Ultrasound provides a clearer view of the treatment area before and during fat injection, allowing the surgeon to work more confidently and accurately to reduce potential risks.
Precision in Fat Transfer: Ultrasound technology allows surgeons to visualize the layers of fat and tissue with incredible clarity. During the transfer process, ultrasound guidance aids in placing the fat cells strategically, ensuring an even and symmetrical result.
Reduced Bruising and Swelling: The precision offered by ultrasound technology means less tissue trauma. This often leads to decreased postoperative bruising and swelling, making recovery more comfortable.
Tailored Results: The precision of ultrasound BBL allows for highly customized results. Whether you want subtle enhancements or more dramatic changes, the procedure can be tailored to meet individual aesthetic goals.

REVOLVE™ Fat Grafting: Revolutionizing BBL
At Destin Plastic Surgery, our BBL success also relies on the REVOLVE fat grafting system. Here’s a closer look at this innovative system and why it’s a game-changer for BBL procedures:
Superior Fat Purification: The success of a BBL largely depends on the quality of the fat being transferred. The REVOLVE system provides an advanced purification process that carefully filters out impurities. This leaves behind only the healthiest fat cells, ready for grafting, for a higher cell survival rate and superior results.
Pioneering Excellence: Being one of the first plastic surgery practices in the United States to use the REVOLVE fat grafting system demonstrates our commitment to achieving optimal patient outcomes. And because I’ve used the system from its early days, I’ve mastered using it to its full potential.
Reduced Complications: Using the REVOLVE system can reduce the risk of complications. In one study comparing REVOLVE and traditional fat grafting, patients who had REVOLVE fat transfer during breast reconstruction had fewer incidents of nodule and cyst development and fat necrosis after surgery. The REVOLVE fat transfer patients also had fewer subsequent operations to add more soft tissue.
Less Swelling, More Comfort: One of the standout features of the REVOLVE system is its ability to reduce postoperative swelling. This leads to a more comfortable recovery experience and lets you see your results sooner.
Elimination of Drainage: Using the REVOLVE system, I place pure fat grafts into buttock tissue without extra fluid or blood. This enables me to close the access incisions at the end of your procedure rather than leaving them open to allow drainage—a common practice by other surgeons—sparing you the inconvenience of post-surgical draining as you recover.
Value Over Cost: Why BBL Expertise Matters Most
So, how much are Brazilian butt lifts? It’s a common question; price is important when considering plastic surgery. However, BBL is an intricate procedure. It isn’t just about adding volume—it’s about safety, artistry, and contouring. Choosing a surgeon with BBL expertise and an eye for aesthetics is the most critical decision you’ll make in getting the results you desire.
If you prioritize cost over quality, you’ll compromise your results and could risk potential complications. Trusting your body to a surgeon with a proven track record gives you peace of mind and helps ensure beautiful, safe results.
