Shapeless or drooping buttocks can make it difficult to feel confident in your preferred style of clothing and swimwear.
To lift and enhance the buttocks, board certified Sarasota plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon Lambiris offers safe and effective BBL options unique to your goals. At West Coast Plastic Surgery, we are devoted to provide the best BBL Sarasota can offer.
First developed by Brazilian plastic surgeon Ivo Pitanguy, the original BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) entailed grafting the patient’s fat into the gluteal region to augment the buttocks' shape and size surgically.
Today, BBL has become an umbrella term that refers to various buttocks enhancement procedures, including fat grafting, buttock lifting, buttock implants, and even nonsurgical alternatives such as injecting dermal fillers into the buttocks.
Skin laxity due to weight loss, age-related skin changes, and a genetic predisposition to having flat or shapeless buttocks are some of the top reasons our Sarasota BBL patients choose to undergo the procedure. The ideal BBL candidate has realistic goals, does not smoke, and does not present with medical conditions that may increase the risk of complications.
BBL adds volume to the buttocks by harvesting excess fat from one area of the body, purifying it, and then injecting the fat in thin strands into the buttocks. This process is also known as buttocks fat transfer. Common sites for fat harvesting include the abdomen, hips, and thighs. Dr. Lambiris extracts the fat through a liposuction cannula.
In this procedure, Dr. Lambiris places an implant in each buttock to enhance the size and contour of the buttocks.
A buttocks lift is suitable for post-bariatric patients with redundant skin and sagging buttocks after extreme weight loss. The procedure traditionally involves a horizontal incision along the iliac crest through which Dr. Lambiris dissects, elevates, and then surgically removes the excessive skin. As he closes the incision, the buttocks elevate several centimeters, appearing firm and taut. A buttocks lift may accompany gluteal augmentation (implants) for patients who wish to increase buttocks size and improve the shape of the buttocks during their lift.
Exercise and physical exertion are restricted for six weeks. Dr. Lambiris may recommend compression to alleviate post-operative swelling. If bruising occurs, it should subside in approximately two weeks. If signs of complications develop, contact Dr. Lambiris immediately. It takes six months to a year to fully appreciate the results after your Sarasota BBL procedure at West Coast Plastic Surgery.

The national average cost of BBL ranges from $2,275 to $10,850. Differences in surgical technique, geographic location, anesthesia, and the surgeon’s level of experience are all factors that can impact the price of BBL surgery.
Insurance does not cover elective cosmetic procedures such as BBL.
Exercise and heavy lifting are restricted for six weeks. While you may feel well enough to return to the gym earlier than that, it is important to take this time to recover and ease back into exercise gradually.
BBL carries slightly more risk than other elective surgical procedures, but most individuals can expect a safe recovery without serious repercussions. Dr. Lambiris pre-screens each patient on a case-by-case basis to ensure they do not pose a heightened risk of complications.
Choosing a qualified Sarasota BBL surgeon such as Brandon Lambiris MD, who has extensive training in anatomy, may reduce your risks. It is imperative not to travel for Brazilian Butt Lifts abroad as routine aftercare, and follow-up visits are necessary to ensure the tissues are healing as expected.
BBL risks may include prolonged nerve damage, bleeding, scarring, hematoma, seroma, blood clots, poor reaction to anesthesia, damage to deeper structures, pulmonary embolism, implant malposition, and death. As an experienced Sarasota BBL surgeon, Dr. Lambiris takes routine precautions to maximize safety during the procedure. He also provides exceptional aftercare to manage any complications that might occur.
Dr. Lambiris usually performs buttocks augmentation with general anesthesia, so there are no memories or sensations during the procedure. However, he may consider using local anesthetic on a case-by-case basis for minor procedures.
Dr. Brandon Lambiris believes everyone deserves the opportunity to look their best.
