The Aji-Booty BBL
A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), or what most of our clients refer to as The Aji-Booty, is a surgical butt augmentation procedure, done by our plastic surgeon Dr. Dare Ajibade, that enhances the current shape and volume of your buttocks through a fat transfer. This procedure has grown to be very popular and is one of the most performed services we offer, especially if you are looking to accent your curves, reverse drooping, add volume, and create a more feminine definition.

Your surgical outcome from a fat transfer can be long-lasting and permanent. You can expect your Aji-Booty to be perfectly customized to your size and personal preference. Reabsorption of tissue is possible as some fat may struggle to create a new blood supply. You can expect an increase in volume, prominent definition, a fuller backside, and a natural-looking and soft result.
Healing time varies by individual, treatment area, and size. Depending on your daily routine and how strenuous your job is, most candidates can return to their normal activities, within reason, as soon as five days to two weeks, although healing can persist for 3-6 months or longer. You must refrain from sitting directly on your buttocks for two weeks or as directed by your surgeon. Since this is a 2 in 1 procedure, recovery can vary from areas that were liposuctioned vs. areas where fat was grafted. Bruising is expected and will fade in several days. Swelling may take longer, persisting from several weeks to even several months. Compression garments are encouraged to be used daily, anywhere between 6 weeks to 3 months, to reduce these side effects. The recovery process is a journey; patience is highly recommended, as your body will have fluctuations in healing. Remember to follow home care instructions and keep up with any post operative appointments to ensure results.
The Aji-Booty BBL is very safe, with relatively few side effects when performed in the proper setting. Although the risks are generally low, possible side effects such as bruising, swelling, infection, and pain can be reduced with proper adherence to post-operative care. Since we are reintroducing your own fat cells back into the body, allergic reactions from the transfer are extremely rare. Ambulating regularly after your procedure will decrease the chances of blood clotting and speed up the recovery process by increasing blood flow.
