Brazilian Butt Lift Newport Beach
Dr. Agha’s Signature Procedure for
a Curvaceous, Hourglass Figure
Having a perky, Jennifer Lopez-caliber booty is nice and all, but when you come to really think of it, it’s not just the rounded buttocks that make J. Lo uber attractive.
Her small waist and firm, toned thighs give her an hourglass shape. Her lower back has a smooth, concave sweep that’s devoid of any excess fat. She even has a V-shaped depression that distinctly separates the lower back from her upper buttocks. There are no saddlebags, love handles, and cellulite in sight.
While many women think that having a nice pair of buttocks is all they need, the truth is, the attractiveness of these buttocks depends on the bigger picture. It has to be complemented with the right curves at the right places in order to have an aesthetically pleasing front and back appearance.
And you can achieve bigger buttocks and beautiful womanly curves in one surgery with a high-definition Brazilian butt lift — the signature surgery of internationally-renowned top Newport Beach plastic surgeon, Dr. Siamak Agha.
Dr. Agha is an expert in body contouring surgery, creating curvaceous buttocks that many celebrities have recently been flaunting.
As an expert in buttock reshaping with one of the largest butt galleries in the USA, Dr. Agha offers many buttock enhancement procedures, such as butt lift procedures and buttock augmentation surgeries like buttock implants and buttock fat transfer — aka Brazilian butt lift.

What Determines Buttock Size and Shape?
The shape of your buttocks is influenced by a number of factors, such as genetics, race, gender, aging, and weight.
What is the Ideal Buttock Shape
and Back View?
There are certain features that define an aesthetically beautiful pair of buttocks.
Similarly, Dr. Agha believes that the focus should not just be the ideal buttocks, but the ideal back view. This includes the ideal back contour — meaning the ideal buttocks framed by the ideal back, waist, and thighs.
What is a High-Definition
Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift or BBL is a truly ingenious buttock augmentation procedure that accomplishes two goals:
- It removes fat from unwanted places, such as the love handles, abdomen, and back.
- It then transfers the fat into a wanted location — your buttocks.
According to the 2019 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of BBL procedures done has risen by 17% from 2018 to 2019 — a testament to the growing popularity of the surgery.
Although the procedure sounds simple, the outcome of a BBL is more dependent on the skills and knowledge of your chosen plastic surgeon than any other plastic surgery procedure. That is why choosing the right plastic surgeon is crucial if you want to achieve the best BBL results.
What Should You Expect from Your Initial Brazilian Butt Lift Consultation with Dr. Agha?
During the consultation, Dr. Agha will ask you about your health status, as well as your concerns, priorities, and motivations for getting a BBL. He will also walk you through the entire procedure, from preparation to recovery, so that you know exactly what to expect.
Dr. Agha will assess your lower body contour to ensure that you get the BBL results you want.
I had a buttock enhancement and was nervous about it not looking natural but Dr. Agha has a great eye and assured me that I would look fuller without looking fake. He walked me through the procedure and all the staff the day of were amazing and calmed my nerves. I’m so happy I chose him for my surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the results!
How Does Dr. Agha Do a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Dr. Agha performs BBL surgeries in a fully accredited outpatient surgery center.
The length of the procedure depends on the specifics of surgery and the amount of liposuction, although in general, each BBL procedure takes about three to four hours.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how Dr. Agha performs each BBL procedure.
Before your BBL, Dr. Agha will ask you to quit smoking for at least three weeks before the procedure.
You will also be asked to temporarily stop taking certain drugs and supplements, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin, as these cause bleeding after surgery.
Make sure that you arrange for a friend or family member to drive you to and from the clinic, as you won’t be able to do so after your surgery. You also need to have someone to stay with and take care of you for at least a few days after your BBL.
Prepare any materials that you will need for your recovery, such as compression garments, antibiotics, painkillers, and gauze.
Do not eat or drink anything starting from midnight prior to your surgery.
All Brazilian butt lift procedures are usually performed under general anesthesia since comprehensive liposuction is necessary.
First, Dr. Agha will inject a solution of local anesthesia into the intended incision site and areas marked for liposuction. Known as tumescent solution, the fluid contains a very low concentration of lidocaine and epinephrine. The fluid plumps up the fat while lidocaine numbs the surgical site. Epinephrine constricts the blood vessels, reducing your potential for bleeding and bruising.
Once numbing has kicked in, Dr. Agha removes fat from marked areas of your body, like your flanks, back, and saddlebags. He does this using very gentle, low-vacuum liposuction to protect the living fat cells.
The harvested fat is then washed with an antibiotic solution. After processing it, the fat is injected into the buttocks as minute droplets or micrografts.
Dr. Agha uses specialized instruments and techniques for microinjection to ensure that the blood supply to the newly transplanted cells is optimal. This maximizes fat cell survival in their new location within the buttock tissues.
The fat micrografting process allows your buttocks to be contoured to your desired size and shape. Dr. Agha can greatly increase the fullness and projection of your backside by layering many fine layers of fat micrografts throughout your buttocks’ fatty tissues.
Dr. Agha’s unique BBL technique ensures that as much as 80% of the transferred fat will survive in its new location. But because around 20% of the injected fat will be reabsorbed, Dr. Agha usually exaggerates grafting to ensure optimal augmentation.
It also takes 6-8 weeks before the micrografted fat is fully re-vascularized. After that period, further loss of volume is minimal.
Dr. Agha carefully closes your incisions using sutures.
He then applies sterile dressing on the incisions and instructs you to wear compression garments 24 hours a day for 3-4 weeks following surgery.
The compression garment reduces postoperative swelling and bruising, supports your lower body during healing, and helps create the final form and shape of your backside.
You will be asked to stay in the recovery room for about an hour or two before being released to your friend or family member. You may also enlist the help of a private duty nurse at home.
How Do You Recover from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Stay – Recovery from BBL may take up to 14 days. But you are encouraged to get out of bed and start walking within 24 hours to enhance your circulation and reduce your chances of developing blood clots in your legs.
Day of Surgery – Right after your surgery, you may notice some blood-tinged fluid oozing from your liposuction site. It is actually tumescent fluid that was injected to plump up your tissues for liposuction. You don’t have to worry about it as it is normal and only lasts for a day.
Bruising – However, bruising is inevitable in many areas that are liposuctioned or grafted. It might even extend to adjacent and dependent areas. Though these bruises will resolve on their own, make sure that you avoid sun exposure while you’re recovering so that the bruises do not become permanent skin stains.
What Results Can You Expect from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift will give you:
- Rounder, perkier, fuller buttocks
- A more balanced and sensuous look to your whole backside
- Improvement in buttock shape and contour
- Tighter and firmer buttocks
- A more youthful and curvaceous figure
- Less unwanted fats in other areas of your body
- More fashionable clothing choices
- Less feeling of self-consciousness
- A boost in confidence and self-esteem
But remember that BBL shouldn’t be viewed as a magical cure. While it can help you achieve the backside you want, you have to make lifestyle changes to maintain your new shape.
What are the Potential Risks and Complications?
BBL is an extremely safe procedure when done by a board-certified, well-experienced plastic surgeon.
But as safe as BBL is, there’s still a possibility for minor risks and complications, such as the following:
- Fluid accumulation
- Fat necrosis
- Fatty cyst formation
- Fat Calcification
- Changes in skin sensation
- Adverse anesthesia reactions
- Minor Asymmetry
Rest assured that all of these will be discussed by Dr. Agha during the consultation and before you sign your surgery consent form.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?
According to RealSelf data, the cost of BBL can range anywhere from $7,000 to as high as $14,000.
There are plenty of factors that will affect the final price of your surgery. The main factor is the amount of liposuction involved, as well as the number of areas you want to be liposuctioned. Some may need liposuction of their back only, while others may want to have the procedure performed on their back, abdomen, thighs, and arms.
