What is a BBL?
When you think of a Brazilian butt lift, you may believe it is a procedure that can primarily benefit women. However, men can also benefit from this procedure. A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a cosmetic procedure in which fat is transferred from the abdomen, hips, thighs, or lower back into the buttocks. This helps to add volume, improve shape, and overall contour of the buttocks for a more balanced overall body shape.
There are many benefits associated with a male BBL, including:
- Improved volume
- Better shape and contour
- Improved body proportion
- Clothing looks and fits better
This procedure offers a more natural option to enhance the buttocks. Not only do results appear natural, but there is also no need to use foreign substances such as implants. Joseph T Cruise, MD’s buttock augmentation with fat transfer offers outstanding results.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Male BBL?
Otherwise healthy men ranging in age are often ideal candidates for a male BBL. Candidates often feel that their buttocks are too small and seek to increase the projection or fullness of their butt. The best candidates will be generally active and healthy and have enough fat in other areas of their body to be redistributed.

Differences Between Male BBL and Female BBL
A Brazilian butt lift is performed under general anesthesia in an accredited outpatient facility. While the actual procedure steps of a BBL are very similar when it comes to male BBL and female BBL, there are some key differences.
During an Orange County male BBL, plastic surgeons avoid injecting fat into the hips and “love handles” as men naturally have a less curvy physique than women. In fact, fat may actually be removed from these areas and the lower back to help give a more masculine, toned appearance.
Male BBL generally differs in that men generally want a very mild improvement, while women sometimes request a more dramatic look. Dr. Cruise is conservative when it comes to adding fat to a man’s buttocks to ensure the result is not overdone. One of the main benefits of a male BBL is providing an enhancement that will last for years to come. Think of it like a reserve for the future.
Also, it is more common for women to request a BBL as their primary procedure, while men generally add it on as a secondary procedure to liposuction and/or a tummy tuck.
Procedure Info & Recovery Time
Overall, recovery following a BBL usually takes between two and six weeks. Following surgery, you will be asked to wear a special compression garment to support your new buttock contours and reduce swelling. You will need to continue wearing the compression garment until 6 weeks post-op. You will also be advised to sleep on a special pillow to reduce pressure on the treatment site. Most people are able to enjoy their final outcomes about 6 months after surgery when you can also resume all physical activity. Please follow the specific post-op instructions given to you to ensure ideal outcomes.
