Increasingly popular across the country and at our Atlanta & Alpharetta offices, the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) creates rounder, fuller buttocks using the patient’s own fat, harvested from another area of the body.
Our triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, performs this innovative procedure for individuals who want to add shape to their backside without implants. The starting cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift in Atlanta is $6,700 at Y Plastic Surgery. The cost includes the surgeon’s fees in addition to other surgical and anesthesia fees.

People from the metro Atlanta area considering the Brazilian Butt Lift get the best of both worlds with this procedure. It slims other areas using liposuction and adds volume to the buttocks for an hourglass shape. An ideal candidate for a BBL has:
As with all elective surgeries, patients should be nonsmokers in good overall health with realistic expectations from the procedure.
A Brazilian Butt Lift begins with harvesting fat from an area of the body where it’s unwanted using liposuction, which requires a few tiny incisions. After the fat is processed to remove impurities, Dr. Yalif re-injects it into the buttocks with a special syringe, layering the fat to produce optimal results. This process is referred to as fat transfer, and can be used for other areas of the body as well. Many patients choose a Brazilian Butt Lift because they want a natural look and feel, and do not want silicone implants.
Dr. Yalif typically uses more fat than the patient needs for their desired look to account for the reabsorption of some of the fat. Dr. Yalif performs BBL surgery using general anesthesia at a fully accredited surgical facility. The procedure can take several hours, especially if he performs liposuction on multiple areas of the body. It’s typically an outpatient procedure, meaning patients return home on the day of surgery.
During your consultation for Brazilian Butt Lift Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Yalif, creates a customized surgical plan based on your cosmetic goals and the physical exam he performs. It’s important to know that the BBL surgery is a different procedure than a nonsurgical butt lift, which Dr. Yalif offers for patients with sagging buttocks skin.
Your Perfect Lift
A BBL surgery enhances the buttocks with the patient’s own fat collected with liposuction surgery.
A non-surgical butt lift shapes the buttocks with Sculptra Aesthetic, an injectable filler that contains poly-L-lactic acid and stimulates collagen production. It is a good option for patients who do not have enough excess fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift.

During the recovery for Brazilian Butt Lift, you must avoid sitting down or laying on your back for 2 to 3 weeks. You can expect some swelling and bruising that gradually resolve on their own. You’ll likely see the final results after 6 to 8 weeks. You should also keep in mind that major fluctuations in weight can affect the longevity of your results. If you’d like to look curvier in jeans or a swimsuit, we encourage you to learn more about the procedure by requesting a consultation with Dr. Yalif using the online form. Or you can call us directly at (404) 822-4402 to schedule an appointment.
Whether it is a facelift or a tummy tuck, we will want to maximize our results. Dr. Yalif knows that the best way to help your body through the surgery journey is with adjunctive skincare regimens. These recommendations will help maintain your results longer, refine scars, and achieve your desired aesthetic!
For face procedures, we recommend a pre-op retinoid, usually from the Environ line. Their multi-level retinoid system allows the escalation of the retinoid’s effect, usually without all the drying and itchiness usually associated with these types of products. Post-operatively, we recommend a combination of therapies aimed at keeping your skin youthful while allowing your incisions to fully heal with excellent support, essentially maintaining your results and improving the quality of your skin over time. These include Environ’s Skin Essentia line for both cleansing and moisturizing, followed by the Vita-peptide C-quence serum 2 – containing vitamins A, C, and E, along with hydrating and toning elements for your skin. We add the super moisturizer at night and the ISDIN SPF during the day to complete the recovery of your skin and enhance your results for years.
If you’ve had an eye procedure or just want a good recommendation for an eye cream, Dr. Y recommends the Environ Vita-peptide gel. It will help with puffiness, fine lines, crow’s feet, and more. Essentially it is an excellent product on its own and will augment any result you get if Dr. Y is doing a periorbital procedure too.
And don’t think we neglect your body! In addition to the recommendations above, we highly recommend The Derma-Lac lotion postoperatively to help exfoliate your skin and soften smooth and moisturize the treated areas to improve overall skin health. We also will add vitamin A, C, and E body oil to help the appearance of stretch marks, scarring, pigmentation, and dry skin. Our experts are happy to answer questions and make additional recommendations based on your particular needs.
