Brazilian Butt Lift, Natural Buttocks Enhancement is a popular and effective procedure for sculpting a rounder, fuller, shapelier buttocks. The procedure involves gentle liposuction of fat from large areas such as the abdomen, love handles and thighs. The unwanted fat is then processed and transferred to the buttocks.

At The Lumen Center, the Brazilian Butt Lift is minimally-invasive with small nicks in the skin, no stitches and a tiny injection cannula. Local anesthesia is administered, similar to what is provided at a dentist office. Recovery time is fairly short with most patients back to work after four days.
There are a series of steps that are involved during the 2-hour procedure:
We want you to feel comfortable and have the best experience possible. It’s why we take the time to educate you about what to expect before and after your procedure. The Lumen Center patients are carefully monitored post-procedure and at regular checkpoints for up to a year.
The recovery process for Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is fairly short with most people only taking 3 - 4 days off from work with mild associated discomfort and bruising. A compression garment must be worn over the areas where the fat was taken for 1 month. The buttock will fluctuate in size for a few weeks as things equilibrate and will reach full maturity at usually 3 - 4 months. In many cases, results of fat transfers can last indefinitely once the fat has settled because it is now a part of you living in a new area. Keep in mind, though, that fat transfers do not protect against future aging and patients may notice results slightly diminish over time.
