Maturity is a process of perpetual evolution.
Some body parts grow, others recede, and the shifting dynamics of our physiology mark the passage of time in personal, individual ways. The buttocks are one area where aging can be readily noticeable. Fat may accumulate on the backside and weigh it down more and more as the years progress.

Dr. Sadi Erfani can help bring your aesthetic dreams to life by creating a fuller, firmer profile for your posterior. Conveniently located in San Diego, California, Dr. Erfani proudly serves his community with professionalism and precision.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)?
Sometimes, fat deposits do not settle in the exact places where we want them. A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) can reposition your rear-end by removing excess fat from the thighs, abdomen, and any other areas that present issues for you. Autologous grafting is the science of relocating unwanted fat from the outlying areas of your midsection and moving them to your buttocks. In essence, we will use your own fat to create a rounder, higher backside.
There are various methods that Dr. Erfani can use to awesomely augment your butt:
Brazilian Butt Lifts take a two-tiered approach to transforming your silhouette. First, Dr. Erfani will slim your waistline through careful liposuction and contouring. This will accentuate your butt by comparison, but that’s just the inaugural step. Next, the doctor uses the fat he removed via liposuction to add to your buttocks. This process lifts and defines your backside using your own body’s natural tissue.
If you do not have enough fat stores to contribute to the BBL process, you may require implants instead. Gluteal implants are tailored to fit your body and maximize your measurements. They are positioned 4cm to either side of your buttocks’ centerline. Implants generally swoop inward and upward to create a “lifting” dynamic.
To benefit from both of the techniques described above, you may want to consider a combined approach. After Dr. Erfani contours your midsection with liposuction, he can use your fat reserves and gluteal implants to bolster your buns.
Dr. Erfani will determine which exact approach works best for your body during your office consultation.
The Benefits of BBL Surgery
Brazilian Butt Lifts give you two major benefits rolled into one. You will simultaneously enjoy the slimming effects of body contouring and the plumping effects of back-end augmentation. Dr. Erfani’s expert liposuction technique targets any bulges that diet and exercise just can’t seem to control. Then, he uses your purified fat deposits to “lift” your posterior to new levels of satisfaction.
If you live in San Diego, or plan to visit Southern California, Dr. Erfani can explain the wonders of a Brazilian Butt Lift in person. In the meantime, please feel free to visit our blog. We appreciate the opportunity to communicate directly to our community, and our blog posts give us the chance to highlight cosmetic trends, truths, and triumphs in our field.
Ideal Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates
If you are a healthy adult who is dissatisfied with the shape, size, or definition of your buttocks, then you may be a perfect candidate for the BBL treatment. The Brazilian Butt Lift is not intended to be a weight loss procedure. Ideal recipients are within 30 pounds of their goal weight, but simply want to reshape their features and reconfigure their curves. To determine if you are eligible for a BBL in San Diego, please call (619) 323-2888.
Book Your Personal Consultation
Dr. Erfani provides a comprehensive consultation to assess your goals and formulate a strategy accordingly. He will begin by asking which areas (if any) you wish to contour and slim with liposuction. Specifically, Dr. Erfani will consider the supra gluteal region (above the buttocks), the trochanteric (hip) area, and the subgluteal point where the back of the thigh and buttocks converge. It is important for Dr. Erfani to see both your standing profile and seated posture to get a full picture of your mannerisms and physicality.
By analyzing how your contours react to various poses, Dr. Erfani will get a better idea of how to perform your Brazilian Butt Lift. He will note your upper and lower gluteal limits to draft measurements that will be factored into your individualized BBL strategy.
Preparation for a Brazilian Butt Lift
Dr. Erfani will give you ample time to fill any prescriptions you may need well before your surgery date. Please follow his instructions carefully. You should also arrange for a loved one to transport you to and from our clinic for the BBL operation. You must not drive on the day of the surgery.
Nicotine disrupts the body’s natural ability to heal, so please quit smoking in the two weeks leading up to your Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr. Erfani may also advise you to stop taking certain anti-inflammatory medications or supplements.
Dr. Erfani will tailor your individual preparation to your wellness needs and healthcare history. Please contact his helpful staff if you have any questions. We all share the same ultimate goal: your comprehensive health and happiness!
The BBL Procedure
You will receive the appropriate anesthesia to ensure maximum comfort throughout your visit. Once you are properly anesthetized, the process will begin. If you are receiving liposuction, Dr. Erfani will flood any unwanted fat deposits with a tumescent liquid to soften them. He then removes the loosened fat using a cannula, or small vacuum tube. This cannula contours as it proceeds, providing a slimming effect for your thighs, hips, or belly region.
The fat removed during liposuction is then purified and injected into your buttocks, creating an appealing silhouette. Dr. Erfani strategically places his small incisions so they can be concealed by your bathing suit or underwear.
A Brazilian Butt Lift procedure may last about three hours, but each procedure is unique.
You may also receive gluteal implants to bolster the boost of the fat transfer. These implants are perfectly situated in the hindquarter area before it is sutured and cinched to tighten the buttocks. Dr. Erfani is able to repurpose your belly rolls, love handles, or thigh bulges to craft a higher, fuller behind.
Dr. Erfani delivers aesthetic improvements with exacting precision, focusing his undivided attention on you for the duration of your treatment. Remarkable results are worth the wait!
Recovery from a Butt Lift
Please plan to take two weeks off work to allow your recovery to fully flourish. Dr. Erfani may provide you with gentle compression garments to promote ideal circulation to the posterior region. A few days after your procedure, you might be directed to enjoy short, peaceful walks to foster proper blood flow to your lower body.
In the two weeks following your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, please shift your weight away from your buttocks whenever possible. For example, recline on your side rather than sitting squarely on your buttocks. During the recovery period, you should avoid strenuous activity. Treat your behind with the care and consideration it deserves!
Over the course of the month that follows your BBL procedure, your body will adjust to its transcendent transformation. Swelling will continue to subside, the curves of your midsection will emerge, and Dr. Erfani’s work will accentuate your full, round behind. Results may vary, but Dr. Erfani’s expertise speaks volumes. Check out the rave reviews that our satisfied patients have already shared, and picture yourself among their ravishing ranks in the very near future!
Every procedure is different, as is every patient. Our helpful staff is willing to work within your budget to deliver the best cosmetic options at the right price. Dr. Erfani prides himself on serving greater San Diego residents and visitors with compassion and care. Price should never prohibit wellness or personal fulfillment.
The results of a Brazilian Butt Lift can last for several years. Liposuction removes fat cells from your “problem areas” and relocates them to your buttocks. While it is still possible to gain weight from the donor sites by enlarging the remaining fat cells, liposuction has long-lasting effects. The harvested fat will enhance your backside for years to come!
If you live in Southern California, or are visiting San Diego for an extended period of time, Dr. Erfani can perform a BBL to add youth and vigor to your buttocks. Please contact his office at (619) 323-2888 to schedule your personal consultation.
