Why the Brazilian Booty Lift is the Secret to Your Summer Body By James E. Murphy, MD on February 12, 2024

If you want to step into summer with a sultry, curvaceous body, the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) may just be your secret weapon. This procedure has allowed many to achieve a much-desired hourglass figure.


What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

This surgery doesn't require implants to give your backside that extra oomph. Instead, it uses a fat transfer method, meaning Dr. James E. Murphy will take fat from places where you might think you have a little too much – typically, our belly, thighs, or hips. Then, this fat is cleaned up and prepped for a journey to its new home - your newly sculpted derrière. Not only does this process give your booty a new shape, but it also helps slim down the areas where fat was taken. Many of our happy patients feel like this is a win-win! 


The Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift

BBLs use your own fat; your body's not going to put up a fight or reject it. Plus, it just looks and feels more natural than implants. Because of the process of harvesting the fat sculpts and slims, the result is an enhancement and a contouring job all in one.


The Importance of Timing

Even in-office Brazilian Butt lifts take some time for your body to recover and get used to its new silhouette. Getting your procedure done in the winter is favored among our satisfied patients for several reasons. You'll have plenty of time to rest, heal, and reveal your new look just in time for the sunshine and swimsuit season. Staying inside while healing is more challenging when the sun shines and the long summer days beg you to show off your results. However, the shorter, harsher days of the cold winter season allow our patients to rest and heal without the summer heat begging for them to show off their results.  


Realistic Expectations

While the Brazilian Butt Lift can undoubtedly work some magic, it's important to remember it's not a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. You should keep in mind that it's all about enhancing your natural assets, not transforming into someone else. Dr. Murphy does all of his consultations and will work with your unique shape and proportions and discuss your personalized goals. We know the best results come when the procedures are customized for our patients.
