Brazilian butt lift or B’more butt lift ™ ?

I have been doing a butt augmentation procedure called the Brazilian butt lift for years. The procedure is very popular as it gives patients not only a sensuous body profile, but they also get a butt augmentation thru the use of fat injections into the buttocks.

The fat which is injected into the buttock is permanent with my technique as I use special processing and injection techniques. If you want to have the most robust butt possible,  the Brazilian butt lift IS the procedure of choice.

But what about the patient who wants to enhance the shape of their buttock, but doesn’t really want a bigger buttock?

These patients now have a solution : The B’more butt lift.

After years of performing the Brazilian Butt Lift, I developed a procedure to give patients another choice of enhancing their buttocks. Since I practice in Baltimore, I decided to name the procedure the B’more butt lift ™.

The patient in the before and after photo above had the B’more Butt Lift. In the preoperative photo on the left, notice how the buttock profile is flattened, and is even less prominent than the waist. The waist to hips profile is almost a straight line, giving the waist and hips a squared out profile.

On the right is the postoperative view. The buttocks have a rounded profile. There is more projection and a little shelf in the upper buttock. The waist to hips profile is a nice curve, giving the patient’s waistline a sensuous hourglass profile. This is a great result. And there was not an ounce of fat injected into her butt. This is a B’more butt lift ™.

Like the Brazilian butt lift, the B’more butt lift ™ enhances the buttocks. Although there is no fat injected into the butt, there is a slight increase in the butt. In fact, this patient’s buttock volume was maintained even though she lost weight after surgery.  Like the Brazilian butt lift, the B’more butt lift ™ transforms the figure by changing the relationship of the waist to the hips.

The design of the B’more butt lift ™ focuses on two key concepts to achieve its goals.

B’more Butt Lift by Dr. Rodriguez

The first a true sculpting of the waistline and buttocks shape, not by removing bulges of fat, but by drawing out on the patient the actual figure you want to create. When you do this, you remove fat cells from the areas that your body likes to shift fat to. And secondly, once these fat cells are removed the body has to select new areas to store the fat.

This is called fat redistribution and it works to your advantage if I select the patients carefully and plan the liposuction accordingly. Patients have genetically determined areas that their bodies store fat in. That pattern of fat storage is what gives women their shape, whether it be pear or apple shaped. If we remove most of the fat cells in one such area, waist and hips, but leave a part of it intact, that part will continue to accumulate fat. By leaving the butt intact, we target it for fat redistribution. The advantage is that if you lose weight your figure is maintained, as the first patient shows. If you gain weight, the weight is redistributed to the buttock !

I have developed the B’more Butt lift after years of experience with Brazilian butt lift and developing my own patterns of liposuction. It is a great procedure that is ideal for patients who are interested in buttocks enhancement but for one reason or another are not suited for Brazilian butt lift. Who is a candidate for the B’more butt lift ™?

  1. Anybody who wants an hourglass figure with narrower waist and more of an hourglass profile.
  2. Patients who want a more subtle buttocks enhancement, rounder and curvier, not necessarily much bigger.
  3. Patients who want a recovery time of 7 days without restrictions on sitting.
  4. Patients who are on a tighter budget, as the procedure is less expensive than the Brazilian butt lift.

I am very happy to now be able to give my patients a choice with their butt enhancement surgery.

    Good morning Doc, I am 168 5'2 I would like wider hips a smaller waist and my butt just needs a lift what procedure would you likely recommend?
    • Dr. Ricardo L Rodriguez says:

      Sandy: If you want the wider hips you need injection to the hip area. That is a BBL. The B'More buttlift takes away from the waist, but does not add to the hips. Contact kelly at or for more info or arranging a virtual consult. Thanks for your interest!

  • Columbia says:

    Hi Dr. Rodriguez, I'm interested in having the bbl... I see on your website the cut-out compression garment is not the one you should use, so what is the right garment.
    • Dr. Ricardo L Rodriguez says:

      We prefer garments that also cover the buttocks. The urge to leave the buttocks uncovered comes from the misunderstood notion that no pressure should be exerted on the buttocks. That is true, up to a point. The more complete understanding is that swelling in the tissues can also affect graft take. Therefore some compression is necessary to prevent swelling, but not so much that it prevents adequate blood flow. Most compression garments are specifically designed to provide control of swelling without preventing blood flow. Leaving the buttocks uncovered has the unfortunate effect of concentrating swelling in thew buttocks, both because fluid from adjacent areas is squeezed into the butt, and there is obstructed draining of fluids from the buttocks because the surrounding areas are compressed. Kelly will contact you.

  • janice worthen-caldwell says:

    Recommend age for Brazilian butt lift. Total recommended fat one must have to be consider a candiated for brazilian lift. If candiate does not have enough fat, what other procedures are recommended to enhances the buttock,and the most important question ,cost and appointments.
    • Dr. Ricardo L Rodriguez says:

      Janice: There is no "recommended age, but the patient should be at least fully mature physically, and on an age to be considered "adult", that is responsible for her own actions. A younger patient may need parental consent. In general, between careful targeted liposuctioning, and correct fat grafting techniques, one can enhance the buttocks in any patient. As for appointments, contact Kelly at
