A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a surgery where a doctor transfers fat from your abdomen, hips, lower back, or thighs to your buttocks. The result is more of an hourglass-shaped figure, with larger buttocks.
A BBL can also result in a smaller waist if the fat comes from your abdomen or lower back. Doctors remove the fat using liposuction. This is a cosmetic procedure in which fat is sucked out using a small plastic tube called a cannula.

You may be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift if you:
Are in generally good health.
Have extra fat that can be transferred to the buttocks.
Want larger or more round appearing buttocks.
