Brazilian Butt Lift Encino

Brazilian Butt Lifts, or BBL’s, are among the most popular of all plastic surgeries and are widely available, especially in the Greater Los Angeles area. Choosing the right plastic surgeon, however, remains a challenge. Dr. Steven Varkony is a respected innovator whose outcomes are a testament to his intelligent use of the latest techniques and best practices, including VASER ultrasound liposuction technology for BBL’s. The board-certified plastic surgeon’s unique approach to every procedure is aimed at the discerning patient – with an eye for the minute details that differentiate between an acceptable result and a truly spectacular one.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is widely agreed to be the best solution for increasing the size and improving the shape of the buttocks, while also molding other areas of the body that are often difficult to tone. Instead of using implants, as was once typical, a BBL uses transferred fat. The fat is harvested via liposuction from areas of the patient’s body where there is an excess of fatty tissue. It is then purified before being injected into strategic locations on the buttocks for a fuller yet proportional appearance, as crafted by Dr. Varkony. The procedure allows a skilled physician to sculpt results that look and feel extremely natural.

For those who may be concerned, research has shown that, when performed correctly, a Brazilian Butt Lift is just as safe as other plastic surgeries.1

Why Brazilian Butt Lifts are Superior to Buttock Implants

A Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, uses the patient’s natural fat to increase the volume of the buttocks for a more natural appearance and feeling compared to silicone implants. Employing the patient’s fat also reduces the possibility of certain complications associated with synthetic implants. Along with shaping and lifting the butt, a BBL will usually sculpt the abdomen, waist, and/or hips along with any other areas chosen to be liposculpted. Using VASER ultrasound liposuction can further improve outcomes.

Lower risk of infection

Slimmer and more contoured appearance in the location where fat is harvested

VASER Ultrasound Liposuction Means Better BBL’s

VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. Unlike other devices that remove fat mechanically with a cannula, VASER ultrasound liposuction enables the removal of body fat with the power of sound waves.

The device has become popular largely because of its ability to remove fat very thoroughly in what we call high-definition liposculpting. Removing fat for a BBL, however, differs from other types of liposuction in that the fat is harvested, rather than simply being removed and fat cells must remain viable to be injected back into the body. At lower settings, VASER ultrasound liposuction can gather a greater number of fat cells that stay bonded with the necessary attachments. The procedure therefore enables more slender patients to get BBL’s when they otherwise might not have enough excess fat.

Apart from being able to obtain a larger amount of viable fat, the use of VASER technology has other benefits. It is associated with shorter recovery times and less post-operative discomfort compared to other forms of liposuction. Finally, there is research indicating that the use of high-definition liposuction for BBL’s might be preferable for successful weight loss patients.2

More Reasons Why Patients Trust Dr. Varkony for BBL’s

Dr. Varkony is a renowned innovator who is always up to date on the latest best practices. In particular, he is a leader in reducing visible scarring to an absolute minimum. Also, instead of using a syringe to inject fat into the buttocks, he sculpts the patient’s buttocks with greater precision and safety using this technology.

Are You a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Good candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift should be in good health and have enough excess fat stores to transfer to the buttocks. The use of VASER ultrasound liposuction, however, means that this is a problem for fewer patients. If you are unsure whether the procedure is available to you, the way to be sure is to set up an appointment with Dr. Varkony.

Importantly, prospective patients should also have realistic expectations regarding results, as outcomes may vary for every individual.


Patients will need to avoid applying direct pressure on their buttocks for at least the first two weeks following surgery. Normal sitting can usually resume after approximately eight weeks. Additionally, patients may experience some soreness and swelling which can usually be managed with Tylenol.

Frequently Asked Questions About Brazilian Butt Lift

What areas can excess fat be removed from?

Fat can be harvested and used to inject into the buttocks from numerous areas, including the abdomen, waist, hips, back, arms, inner thighs, inner knees, outer thighs, bra roll, and submental fat under the chin.

Will this also tighten loose skin on the buttocks?

A Brazilian butt lift increases the shape and size of the butt. By increasing the volume of the butt, the loose skin over it can be tightened as well as lifted in most cases.
