B’more Butt Lift (Lipo 360)

What is the B'more butt lift (Lipo 360)?

The B’more butt lift is the same as Lipo 360, except it puts more emphasis on making the butt look more prominent.  It completely removes the ‘muffin top’ that exist all the way around the waist.  It is fat extraction via Liposuction in a circumferential (360 degree) fashion. Many women have such a large ‘muffin top’ around the entire perimeter of their waist, that the buttock definition is lost. Once the fat from the abdomen and flanks is removed in a Lipo 360 manner, most women have more prominent buttocks than they thought!

We call the procedure the B’more butt lift in recognition of our practice location, Baltimore, and the desire for women to enhance the buttocks they already have. It is the same procedure as Lipo 360 (liposuction all the way around the torso), except better since there is more emphasis on defining the buttocks!

Is the B’more butt lift procedure the same as Lipo 360?

Yes, the B’more butt lift does incorporate Lipo 360, but there is more focus on defining your buttocks. Lipo 360 is the marketing term used for Liposuction to the abdomen plus Liposuction to the flanks (the love handles). The main concept is that the Liposuction is performed all the way around the body at the level of the belly button. In other words, the Liposuction goes 360 degrees around your body, like a circle.

Will the procedure increase my butt size?

By removing fat from strategic areas all the way around your body, and above the buttocks, the buttock will appear to be larger. In most cases you have more butt than you realize. It is just that there is so much fat in the muffin top that it hides your butt.

However, if you are wanting a very pronounced increase and additional volume in your butt and hips, another procedure to consider is the Brazilian butt lift. This procedure will not only sculpt the full torso, but it will also add volume to your butt and hips.

What problems does a B'more butt lift address?

I want to get rid of my muffin top around my waist and make my butt look better. a New York patient

The B-more butt lift will remove the muffin top which many patients have all the way around their waist. The B'more butt lift was designed to address the following concerns:

  • lack of definition in waist/hips/buttocks
  • muffin top of fat around the waistline
  • unbalanced figure
  • appearing to have a flat buttocks even though your butt is a good size

How is the B'more butt lift performed?

The B'more butt lift is liposuction, or fat extraction, performed in a circumferential fashion. This means that the adipose fat is extracted all the way around your waist. It is often referred to as Lipo 360.

Your B'more butt lift procedure is performed in our AAAASF accredited surgery center located here in Baltimore. We use IV sedation instead of General anesthesia to make your recovery as quick as possible. For the utmost safety, your anesthesia is administered only by board certified anesthesiologists.

Dr. Rodriguez uses a tumescent Liposuction technique with thin 3mm cannulas. He sculpts the abdomen, the love handles (the flanks), and triangle above the buttocks. This is essentially removing the 'muffin top' above the buttocks and hips. Read more about shaping the buttocks with liposuction to love handles and posterior triangle.

B'more Butt Lift (Lipo 360): NO DRAINS, NO MASSAGES needed

Due to the fact that Dr. Rodriguez uses thin 3mm cannulas, there are no drains with this procedure . Fatter cannulas (the tool to extract the fat) can cause tunneling in the tissue which causes fluids to accumulate.  With the thin cannulas, you will not have fluid accumulation , and will not need drains.  In addition, no lymphatic massages are needed!

How is the B'more butt lift (Lipo 360) different from the Brazilian butt lift?

The B'more butt lift enhances what you already have, without the use of fat injections. The B'more butt lift only uses liposuction techniques in a circumferential fashion. The B'more butt lift will enhance your body shape through body sculpting to make your waist smaller and your buttocks appear more prominent. Whereas with the Brazilian butt lift I remove fat and add volume with fat injections to the buttocks, with the B'more butt lift I accentuate the buttock you already have!

Why did Dr. Rodriguez develop the B'more butt lift?

Dr. Rodriguez developed this procedure to give patients more options! It is less expensive than the BBL and requires less recovery time, yet still provides some enhancement to the buttocks profile. Some patients already have a generous amount of buttocks, but it is not well defined because of the muffin top above it. Once we remove the muffin top above the buttocks with Liposuction, many patients discover that they do indeed have more buttocks than they thought!

The specialized and targeted liposuction techniques results in a more sensuous midsection. The B'more butt lift offers a lean body torso with a more pronounced buttock.
