A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) repositions excess fat from the abdomen, waist, and thighs to the buttocks and/or hips, giving the patient a larger, more rounded posterior. This straightforward procedure is one of the most prevalent methods of body contouring. Patients value the fact that they can simultaneously volumize and sculpt multiple body areas without the need for implants.

Although exercises such as squats can tone the buttocks and thighs, they have little impact on the shape of the rear end. This is because genetics play a much larger role in determining your butt’s appearance. If your derriere is unimpressive and flaccid, it is not always due to a lack of effort.

Ideal Candidate

A BBL with Dr. Racanelli is ideal for individuals who wish to:

  • Improve the overall visual appeal of the lower body
  • Add sculpting and definition to the buttocks.
  • Remove fat from troublesome areas like the stomach and transfer it to the rear.
  • Establish a healthy body proportion
  • Create an hourglass figure
  • Enhance the fit of apparel

Schedule an appointment with Dr. Racanelli if the preceding list interests you.


A Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient procedure, which means that you can return home after its successful completion. 

Fat transfer and extraction are performed simultaneously to increase the viability of the fat cells and the likelihood of their effective implantation into the buttocks. A BBL, which can be performed under general or local anesthesia and intravenous sedation, typically takes between two and four hours.

A BBL consists of two phases: liposuction and fat transfer.

Dr. Racanelli will remove fat from another area of your body (typically your hips, waist, or thighs) during liposuction. After removing the fat, it will be prepared for injection into the buttocks.

Processed fat will then be injected into the area of your buttocks to enhance the volume and contour. Dr. Racanelli utilizes his specialized cannulas to administer fat in small, precise aliquots. To assure the highest level of safety, fat injections are always administered subcutaneously (above the muscle). 

Fat Transfer

Fat Transfer in NJ for natural safe tissue augmentation. There are many materials available to augment the body, but one of the safest, most cost-effective, and easiest to use is your natural fat. A fat transfer procedure involve harvesting fat from specific areas of the body through liposuction, such as the thighs or abdomen, where many of us have more fat than we would like. This fat is then re-injected into the area that augmentation is desired. As this procedure uses your own natural tissue, there is little risk of an allergic reaction or rejection.

About Fat Transfer

Dr. Racanelli regularly performs fat transfer procedures to the buttocks, also known as a Brazilian Butt Lift. This procedure will reduce the size of your waist, while simultaneously increasing the size and firmness of your buttocks. With the help of a fat transfer, the buttocks can be contoured, defined, and sculpted ultimately producing a rounded, elevated, and more youthful look.

In addition to augmenting hollow areas of your body, a fat transfer has the added benefit of improved contour in the location of fat harvesting as a result of the liposuction performed.

A Fat Transfer in NJ could give you a tight, smooth, more youthful appearance.

Fat Transfer Procedure

The fat is extracted using Dr. Racanelli’s proprietary micro cannula liposuction technique, and is carefully processed to remove excess fluids and oils. Once purified, this fat is painstakingly injected in small aliquots throughout the desired area of augmentation.

This procedure can also be used to fill in facial wrinkles, create high cheeks, plump up lips and add shape to the chin area. Dr. Racanelli routinely uses fat transfer procedures to correct contour irregularities that result from complications caused by other cosmetic surgeons. The results of a fat transfer are very rewarding. Patients leave the operating room with a body that is more sensual, has a fuller volume and is more curvaceous.

To achieve the best possible results from your surgery, your doctor will provide you with a comprehensive recovery plan.

Important postoperative care recommendations include avoiding contact with the buttocks for two weeks. Except when using the restroom, sitting or lying on your but is prohibited at all times. Throughout the day and night, you will alternate between reclining on your stomach or side and standing.

After the first two weeks of recovery, we will instruct you on how to modify your seating, lying down, and other activities to facilitate a speedy and full recovery. In two weeks following surgery, the majority of patients can return to work, and in eight weeks they can recommence all other normal daily activities.

If you give yourself ample time to decompress and take prescribed pain medication, you should recover from surgery with minimal pain.
