Male BBL

What Is a Male BBL?

Male Brazilian Butt Lift, commonly referred to as Male BBL, is a surgical procedure that aims to enhance the size and shape of a man’s buttocks. The Male BBL procedure involves liposuction to remove excess fat from specific body areas, followed by purification of the extracted fat, which is then injected into the buttocks. The result is a fuller, more sculpted posterior that aligns with the patient’s aesthetic goals.

In Male BBL, fat is typically harvested from areas where it is naturally abundant. The most common donor sites include:

Abdomen: The abdominal area often has a good amount of fat that can be harvested for the procedure. In some cases the Male BBL can be combined with the Ab SilhouetchSM, our signature technique for high definition liposuction with abdominal etching to artistically sculpt and define the underlying abdominal muscles.

Flanks: The sides of the waist, also known as love handles, are another common area for fat extraction.

Back: The upper and lower back regions frequently have unwanted fat deposits, suitable for BBL procedures. For men, removing this fat can enhance the V-shape of the torso, emphasizing a contoured athletic appearance.

Chest: In some cases, particularly for men dealing with gynecomastia, a condition characterized by the development of male breasts, fat can be harvested from the chest area.

How is male BBL different than female BBL?

While the basic Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedure remains essentially the same for both men and women, several key differences set them apart. Men generally aim for a more muscular and toned appearance, contrasting with the rounded and fuller look that many women seek.

Additionally, the fat injection technique is tailored to meet men’s specific aesthetic goals, often focusing on creating a “V” shape rather than a rounded appearance. This means the fat is not injected into the hips but rather into the buttocks to add projection.

Male BBL Surgery Before & After

What Are the Advantages of Opting for Male BBL?

Choosing a Male Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) provides numerous benefits, with one of the most significant advantages being the capacity to attain more voluminous and well-defined buttocks that harmonize with your aesthetic aspirations. This enhanced contour improves physical appearance, boosts self-confidence, and even makes clothes fit better.

While natural methods like targeted exercises can help in toning the buttocks, they often fall short of providing the dramatic changes that many seek. Exercise can improve muscle tone but may not offer the desired volume or shape.

On the other hand, a Male BBL provides immediate, long-lasting results by redistributing fat from different parts of the body to the buttocks. This surgical option allows for a more customized and contoured result, making it a preferred choice for those looking for significant changes.

Who is an ideal candidate for Male BBL?

An ideal Male Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) candidate should meet several criteria to ensure the best
possible outcomes. Candidate must be:

At least 18 years old and fully physically developed.

In good overall health, free from complicating medical conditions.

Possessing adequate fat in donor areas (e.g., abdomen, flanks, thighs) for harvesting while maintaining a healthy weight.

A non-smoker, or able to quit smoking for at least one month before and after surgery, as smoking can have adverse effects on the surgical procedure and recovery

The Male Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure Using Ultrasound-Guided Technique

At Illuum Cosmetic Surgery, we are experts in Male Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). The process starts with a comprehensive consultation to discuss the patient’s aesthetic objectives and to pinpoint appropriate donor areas for fat harvesting.


Our surgeons make use of our signature BBL Silhouetch℠ technique for high-definition liposuction. This enables the precise extraction of fat from the selected donor areas. After the fat is harvested and goes through the purification process, it is prepared for the next critical step: reinjection into the buttocks.

One of the standout features of our Male BBL procedure is the incorporation of ultrasound-guided techniques during the fat reinjection phase. This advanced technology serves multiple purposes. Firstly, it allows our surgeons to visualize the internal structures of the buttocks in real time, ensuring that the fat is injected at the optimal depth. Secondly, the ultrasound guidance aids in the even distribution of the fat, ensuring that it integrates smoothly with the existing tissue. This meticulous approach minimizes the risk of irregularities and enhances the overall aesthetic outcome. The result is a fuller, more sculpted posterior that perfectly aligns with the patient’s aesthetic objectives, all while prioritizing patient safety and quality.

Male BBL Recovery Process

The recovery process following a Male Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is essential to achieving optimal results.
Patients are generally advised to take one week off work to allow for adequate healing.

Specialized compression garments are recommended to minimize swelling and support the healing tissues.

Sitting or sleeping directly on the buttocks during the period of 1 month after surgery is discouraged to prevent pressure on the newly transferred fat cells

Pain management, usually through prescribed medications, and regular follow-up appointments with the plastic surgeon are also part of the recovery regimen.

Physical activities, especially strenuous exercises, should be avoided for four to six weeks weeks post-surgery to ensure the transferred fat cells properly integrate into the existing tissue.

By adhering to these guidelines, male patients can expect a smoother recovery and more enduring results.

Cost of Male BBL in Michigan

In Michigan, the cost of a Male Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) can differ based on a variety of elements. The total cost generally falls within the $6,000 to $15,000 range. This estimated sum often encompasses surgeon fees, anesthesia, surgical suite use, and aftercare. Keep in mind that there may be extra expenses for pre-surgery assessments, specialized post-surgery garments, and any subsequent consultations.

For a tailored and precise financial breakdown, we recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our experienced plastic surgeons at Illuum Cosmetic Surgery to discuss your needs and explore available financing options.

The results of a Male BBL can last several years, although they may be influenced by substantial weight changes and the aging process’s natural progression.
Yes, a Male BBL can often be combined with Male Breast Reduction Surgery. However, it is essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to assess your overall health and determine if you’re a suitable candidate for both procedures. Combining surgeries can offer the benefit of a single recovery period but may also present additional risks that should be thoroughly discussed with your healthcare provider.

No, combining a Male BBL with a tummy tuck is not possible. This is because after a BBL you need to recover on your stomach to avoid undue pressure on the transferred fat on your back-side. Also, after a tummy tuck you need to recover in a flexed position on your back to avoid excess tension on your abdominal incision.

Yes, to some extent. While Male BBL Michigan is primarily aimed at enhancing buttock size and shape through fat transfer, it may have a modest effect in addressing mild excess skin. However, additional procedures such as a lower body lift or butt lift may be necessary for significant excess skin concerns. It’s best to schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon for a personalized evaluation.
