What Is a Mini Brazilian Butt Lift?

A mini Brazilian butt lift, or, mini BBL, is a surgical cosmetic procedure used to create a fuller, rounder, and more attractive butt. The surgery is typically performed on patients who don’t have enough excess body fat for a traditional BBL.

Benefits of a Mini Brazilian Butt Lift

If you’d like to achieve a fuller, more shapely butt, a mini Brazilian butt lift can provide some or all of the following benefits:

  • Larger, rounder buttocks
  • More curvaceous figure
  • Perfect for patients seeking subtle enhancements
  • More affordable than a traditional BBL
  • Shorter recovery time than a traditional BBL
  • Increased self-confidence

How Is a Mini Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?

During a mini BBL procedure, Dr. Tseng will remove available fat from another area of the body, such as the back, abdomen, inner thighs, flanks, or upper arms. That fat will then be injected into the butt to enhance its size and shape. Generally, the results of a mini BBL will be subtler than those of a traditional Brazilian butt lift, but the two procedures are extremely similar.

What Should I Expect During the Surgery?

If you’re interested in a mini BBL procedure, the first step to take is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tseng. This meeting will allow you to ask any questions and air any concerns you have about the treatment. Dr. Tseng will ask you about your specific goals for the procedure and help you determine if it’s the best option for you. If you choose to proceed, the doctor will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that fits your unique needs.

Typically, a mini Brazilian butt lift is performed as an outpatient procedure. To begin, you’ll be administered general anesthesia, which will render you temporarily unconscious during the surgery. Next, Dr. Tseng will make several incisions in the area where fat is being removed from your body. He will then inject a solution of epinephrine and lidocaine, which will prevent excessive bleeding and make it easier to remove the fat. Dr. Tseng will then use liposuction to remove the fat from the area before closing the incisions with sutures.

After the excess fat has been removed from your body, it will be cleaned and combined with antibiotics. Finally, Dr. Tseng will inject the fat into your buttocks and any other target areas. In total, a mini BBL surgery usually takes around one to two hours, and patients can typically return home within a few hours of the procedure.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

Dr. Tseng will provide you with thorough instructions to ensure that your healing process goes smoothly. You will likely experience some swelling and soreness, and most patients need about a week before returning to work and their normal routine. You should also wait at least three or four weeks before engaging in strenuous exercise.

Am I a Candidate for a Mini Brazilian Butt Lift?

Adults who would like to enhance the size and contours of their buttocks may be candidates for mini BBL surgery. Ideal candidates should meet the following requirements:

  • Be in good physical health
  • Have the desire to subtly enhance the size and shape of your butt
  • Have a BMI below 25
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Be a non-smoker
  • Have enough excess fat to transfer for the procedure

How Long Will It Take To See Results After a Mini Brazilian Butt Lift?

You should notice enhancements to your buttocks and upper thighs immediately after your surgery. Over the first few months, your body will absorb a percentage of the injected fat, but Dr. Tseng will account for this when deciding how much fat to transfer. Usually, you can see the full results of your mini BBL after approximately six months.
