What is a Brazilian Butt Lift for Men?
A male Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a popular cosmetic surgery that reshapes and adds volume to the buttocks through fat transfer. A male BBL is an ideal procedure for men who want to enhance and reshape their buttocks as the surgeon can design a bespoke surgery to create your desired aesthetic.
CREO Clinic’s Dr. Omar Tillo is a key opinion leader on Brazilian Butt Lift procedures, having performed the surgery on hundreds of patients using the BEST-F (Buttock Enhancement and Superficial Transfer of Fat) technique, which he developed as an alternative to the traditional BBL procedure. This method of BBL for men is a significantly safer procedure that produces superior male contouring effects.
What Results can I Expect?
During the procedure, Dr. Tillo will inject fat into specific areas of the butt to create your desired BBL shape. Whereas women usually prefer a curvier hourglass figure, men typically prefer a more square-shaped butt, with posterior fullness for a firmer and more defined aesthetic. To achieve this shape, fat is usually injected into the top, middle, and bottom of the buttock while avoiding the sides..
Benefits of a Male Brazilian Butt Lift
Adds Permanent Volume And Definition
The male BBL creates enhancements in size and contour that are permanent.
Better Hip-To-Waist Ratio
The procedure can optimise you hip-to-waist ratio, creating a more athletic-looking physique.
Removes Excess Fat Pockets
Male BBL uses liposuction to extract fat from areas of the body where it is in excess, contouring those areas as well as the buttocks.
Uses Organic, Autologous Fat Cells
No plastics or silicone is used in male BBL – it only relocates fat taken from your own body, reducing the likelihood of rejections or allergic reactions.
The nature of the incisions used means the resulting scars are subtle, and well-hidden from view.
How Much Does a Male BBL Cost in London?
The average cost of a male BBL surgery at CREO Clinic starts at £7,900. However, the cost of the surgery may vary based on the liposuction treatment areas and the complexity of the procedure. You will receive the exact price of your surgery after a consultation with our surgeon.
Included in your price is the surgery itself and the after care provided by the CREO Clinic, such as post-surgery consultations with Dr. Tillo in which he will monitor your progress throughout your recovery.
Should you wish to pay the cost of your surgery over a longer period of time, the CREO Clinic’s financing partner, Chrysalis Finance, offers 0% APR loans paid over 12 months. Longer periods are available with varying rates.
What to Expect
The first big step towards your male BBL is to have an initial consultation with Dr. Tillo, during which he will ask you questions about your aesthetic goals and make an assessment of your needs. To also assess your suitability for the surgery, he will run through your medical history, as well as your physical and mental health.
After he has gained a more complete clinical picture, he will take you through the various surgical options that can help achieve your desired enhancements.
Your consultation is also an opportunity for you to ask the questions on your mind regarding the procedure.
- What will I need to do to help achieve the best results?
- Are my expectations realistic?
- Can I see pictures of patients before and after male BBL?
- How quickly will I be able to get back to work?
- How long will my recovery be overall?
- What will the scarring look like?
- Is a male BBL appropriate for my needs?
- How painful will the surgery/recovery be?
Dr. Tillo will have a detailed conversation with you about the complications that are possible after a male BBL procedure, and ensure that you have a full understanding of the recovery period and everything it entails.
Preparing for Male BBL Surgery
To prepare for your male BBL surgery, there is some important advice to keep in mind:
Ideally you should reduce your alcohol consumption in the run-up to your male BBL as alcohol can delay incision healing.
Nicotine in any form (from cigarettes, vapes, patches, etc) can increase the likelihood of complications from the surgery – refrain from all nicotine in the four weeks leading up to your male BBL.
Keep your BMI below 30 to reduce the risk of complications.
Prepare Your Home for a Comfortable Recovery
Make sure that home is a comfortable space for you to recover after your surgery, and pass any home responsibilities (caring for children or pets, for example) to someone else until you are sufficiently recovered to resume them.
The Male Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
It usually takes 2-4 hours to perform a Brazilian Butt Lift under deep sedation or general anaesthesia. Dr.Tillo first performs liposuction on targeted areas that contain excess fat and then purifies the fat cells and prepares them for injection into the buttocks.
Finally, Dr. Tillo injects the fat into the buttocks using the BEST-F technique. The fat is injected over the gluteal muscle (rather than into or under it) with a guided ultrasound device, which allows careful monitoring of the fat transfer while also creating a more precise shape and reducing the risk of fat leaking into the muscle where it might cause complications.
Recovery and Aftercare
Following the surgery, you may experience swelling and bruising in the buttocks and the liposuctioned areas. Most patients resume office work and light daily activities around a week after surgery and resume more strenuous activities around four weeks. You should follow our BBL aftercare and recovery tips to help make your recovery as smooth as possible and maintain results.
Your final BBL results will usually appear 3-6 months after surgery, although results of liposuctioned areas will appear after 6-12 weeks. By this time, your fat grafts will stabilise, and your skin will expand to accommodate the fat grafts, a process known as fluffing. Furthermore, the swelling will have dissipated to reveal a more enhanced and contoured butt.
Possible Risks or Side Effects
It is understandable that you may feel cautious about undergoing a BBL given some of the negative coverage it has been given in the media over the last few years. Much of this negative coverage has been associated with surgeries performed abroad, such as in Turkey, or other countries where the BEST-F technique pioneered by Dr. Tillo is not in use.
At the CREO Clinic you can feel safe knowing that your safety is of paramount importance, and is always prioritised over making decisions that could cut costs.
Any surgical procedure can incur some potential risks, however unlikely they may be. The most common risks of a male BBL surgery are:
- Fat necrosis
- Fluid under skin (seroma)
- Reactions to anaesthetic
- Poor response to fat transfer
Male BBL FAQs
Is a male BBL different from a female BBL?
A male BBL and female BBL is the same procedure, both involving liposuction and fat grafting. However, the surgeon will be aiming to create a different aesthetic with male patients than female patients. Men tend to have flatter hips and buttocks than women. Therefore, the surgeon will avoid injecting fat into the side of the hips and will inject fat evenly across the butt to create a pronounced enhancement that aligns with the traditionally masculine physique.
What areas are included in a BBL for men?
A male BBL specifically targets the upper and lower sections of the buttocks to give them a masculine firmness and volume. The fat extracted in order to transfer to the buttocks can be removed from multiple areas where fat is in excess that you wish to tone, including the arms, hips and thighs, among others.
Who is a good candidate for male BBL?
A good candidate for a male BBL is someone who wants to add volume and projection to their butt, has no underlying health conditions, and has a BMI between 23-30. Our surgeon will need to examine you to confirm your eligibility for the procedure.
Does a male BBL get rid of cellulite?
While it is not a procedure aimed at removing cellulite, a male BBL may produce a reduction of cellulite on your buttocks and thighs. This is because the fat transfer process firms up the skin to help it appear smoother and more toned.
How long does a Brazilian butt lift for men last?
Once stabilised, the transferred fat will remain in place permanently. To maintain your results, try to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine since any fluctuations in weight cause fat cells to expand or contract. In addition,increased skin laxity as you age may also alter the shape of your buttocks.
Will a male BBL look natural?
A BBL for men can produce results that look natural if performed by qualified surgeons using appropriate surgical methods. At the CREO Clinic, Dr. Tillo uses the BEST-F technique, which creates natural results as it injects proportionate amounts of fat and uses a guided ultrasound device that increases the precision of surgical contouring.
Is a BBL for men worth it?
BBL is currently one of the fastest-growing cosmetic surgeries with both men and women wanting to enhance and define their buttocks to attain their ideal figure. Many people consider the procedure worthwhile, as it offers an organic solution to their cosmetic concerns, contours multiple areas of the body, and provides permanent results.
Are there non-surgical alternatives to a male BBL?
Dermal fillers, such as collagen or hyaluronic acid fillers, can make modest increases to the volume of your buttocks. However, the results from this procedure are less dramatic than a BBL, carry a risk of allergic reactions, and are only temporary.
