Did you catch Dr. Joseph Ajaka explaining the difference between a male BBL and a female BBL on our Instagram Stories earlier this week?

In case you missed it, here is a summary of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure and how it differs between males and females.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a surgical procedure that can assist in reshaping the buttocks to give volume and create the desired shape. Using your own purified fat transferred from your abdomen, thighs or back allows for a precise and more natural look, as well as reduces your risk of infection.

The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic or conscious sedation, while the fat is extracted via liposuction and injected into the targeted areas of the buttocks. Results of a BBL can be noticeable immediately, however, true results are seen after 6 weeks once all the swelling has subsided.

Male vs Female Brazilian Butt Lift

The procedure of a BBL is relatively similar for both males and females, however, there are key differences.

Firstly, during a male BBL, we avoid injecting fat into the sides of the hips as men naturally have a straight up and down physique. Likewise, we don’t inject into the ‘love handle’ region due to the male natural hip structure. In fact, depending on the weight distribution, fat may be removed from the ‘love handles’ and lower back to give an overall chiselled look.

In a female BBL procedure, we inject the purified fat into the upper two-thirds of the buttocks to give a lift and volume. This results in a smooth ‘S’ shape that allows for natural body contouring.

Female BBL

In a male BBL procedure, we inject the entire buttocks with the purified fat accentuating the ‘C’ shape. This is because a male buttock is naturally flat and has the same level of volume distributed throughout the three quadrants. Evenly distributing the fat offers a more pronounced and shapelier look that’s still in keeping with a male’s natural physique.
