Liposuction alone is a good option for patients who just want a more natural hourglass figure: a rounder and curvier but not necessarily much bigger behind. They might even already have enough volume, but if they have the muffin top above it, the butt is not well-defined. 360 lipo (also called circumferential liposuction and 360-degree liposuction) will most likely provide them enough curve without adding fat to the buttocks. In some cases, liposuction of the lower back alone will make the difference because once fat is removed from the lower back, the butt sticks out further.

Liposuction without BBL has a much easier recovery as patient is able to sit on their butt immediately following the procedure and can resume all normal activities within a week or two at the most.

But if your desired result is a much more prominent behind, liposuction alone may not be enough.

If you feel your buttocks are shapeless or flat, you need more volume or you desire more curves, you can opt for BBL (Brazilian Butt lift) or Buttock Augmentation with implants.

A Brazilian Butt Lift is not really a lift, it is transfer of your own fat to increase the fullness of your buttocks. If you are already having a liposuction to treat problematic areas of your body, it can be a great added procedure to give you a better shape.

BBL has a very high satisfaction rate among patients and results are long-lasting, although changes are possible due to natural aging process as with any other procedure.
