What is BBL Surgery?

BBL Surgery in Miami

BBL is an acronym for Brazilian Butt Lift and is an aesthetic surgical procedure for enhancing buttocks for both men and women.  A BBL procedure is performed most typically with the use of harvested fat from areas in the body where there is an excessive amount available.  Some of the most common parts of the body where fat is harvested for the procedure are taken from the abdomen, hips, and thighs. The fat is removed and harvested using a liposuction procedure.

BBL surgery has become one of the most popular types of plastic surgery, as well as non-invasive procedures because the procedures offer some of the most natural looking results, and when using fat transfer, do not require the use of artificial implants. Nonetheless, all fat transfer procedures come with risks, and this is why it is extremely important to consult with and receive your procedure from a board-certified plastic surgeon.

One of the Top BBL Surgeons in Miami

Dr. Constantino Mendieta is one of the best Miami BBL surgeons and also worldwide. He was ranked The Best Plastic Surgeon in the USA for Liposuction by Newsweek Magazine in 2022 and has been interviewed on numerous popular TV and news media outlets, including Vogue, Entertainment Tonight, ABC’s Good Morning America, and Harper’s Bazaar.

Dr. Mendieta developed and has been consistently improving what he calls ‘The Mendieta Technique’ for performing Miami BBL surgery. This technique utilizes his patient’s own excess body fat through liposuction. He calls this procedure the ‘Highlight Liposculpting and Lipo Fat Transfer 3-D Approach.

Many patients opt to add more cosmetic procedures to their BBL surgery, such as a tummy tuck or breast augmentation. Dr. Mendieta also suggests using fat transfer during these additional procedures for patients who have the available excess fat instead of using artificial implants. The Miami BBL surgeon explains that using fat instead of (or sometimes with) implants will offer a more natural look and is also a less invasive form of treatment. Dr. Mendieta’s Miami center for plastic surgery also offers another less invasive Brazilian Butt Lift alternative. Patients may also choose to get a Sculptra BBL, which is a dermal filler.
