Achieve Your Aesthetic Goals
A Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, at Naperville’s John Bull Center is ideal for Chicago-area women or men who want to add some shape or volume to their buttocks. Dr. Bull is one of the area’s most experienced cosmetic surgeons and has helped countless patients achieve their aesthetic goals for their figure, creating curvier contours that stand out while also complementing the silhouette. He strives to deliver the best brazilian butt lift Naperville has to offer. Whether you want to gain volume where you’ve never really had any, further accentuate your buttocks’ visible curves, or address post-massive weight loss flattening and sagging, surgery to augment the area can help you achieve the more rounded look you want. A Brazilian butt lift involves harvesting and processing a patient’s own fat, then using those cells to increase the fullness and roundness of the buttocks, as well as to better balance the overall figure and boost self-image and self-confidence.
Adding More Volume
Patients who have lost a massive amount of weight typically find themselves with too much loose skin, so simply adding fat to the area won’t solve the problem of excess and baggy skin. A surgical buttock lift may be the answer for the patients. This procedure involves an incision along the posterior bikini line and allows Dr. Bull to excise and lift the buttocks into a normal position. It can also be combined with a fat transfer or a second procedure later to add more volume.
Getting The Volume You Want
Brazilian butt lifts employ a body surgery technique known as fat transfer to get volume where it is wanted most. To accomplish this, every Brazilian butt lift procedure involves two steps: liposuction and fat injections.
This process is used to gather fat cells from a part of your body where there is already significant volume, such as the belly. These living fat cells will be transferred to your buttocks, where they will “re-connect” with the body and serve to create naturally long-lasting curves. Dr. John Bull will make small incisions in the donor area, then use advanced techniques and technology to loosen and suction out the needed excess fat. He will then separate the valuable fat from other materials, leaving behind only the desired cells. Great care must be taken throughout this process to preserve these cells’ integrity so that they safely make the journey from the harvest site to the buttocks.
The purified fat gathered during the liposuction phase is injected into the buttocks, with Dr. Bull strategically adding volume to the specific areas where it will serve to create naturally round contours. This is not like inflating a balloon, but must be approached with an artistic eye and medical skill derived from a focused education, thorough training, and extensive practical experience performing Brazilian butt lifts for many patients over many years. Anesthesia will be used, and you will be able to discuss the procedure specifics and best options for you during a consultation with Dr. Bull.

The Right Fit For You
Whether the Brazilian butt lift is right for you depends on a number of personal factors, including the size and shape of your butt as it is today, the amount of available fat on your body that can be transferred to your buttocks via liposuction, your aesthetic goals, your skin quality and elasticity, and more. In general, our ideal Naperville BBL patients are those who are healthy, can maintain a stable weight, and have realistic expectations for their body.
You will be asked to not sit or lie on your backside for the first couple of weeks after a Brazilian butt lift. Avoiding putting pressure on the area will allow the fat to settle. You may see swelling and bruising and feel sore in both the donor and injection sites, but these side effects usually dissipate after two weeks.

Changes from your Brazilian butt lift will be visible right after surgery, but keep in mind that there will be some initial swelling that will make the contours appear more exaggerated than they will be in actuality, once the swelling resolves. It also takes some time for the fat transplanted for a Brazilian butt lift to “settle.” A certain percentage of the fat cells can be expected to not survive the extraction, purification, and injection process, but Dr. Bull takes this into account when performing the procedure. Considering that some initial volume gained from a Brazilian butt lift may fade as a small number of the fat cells are absorbed, most patients find that they keep up to 80 percent of the fat transferred to their buttocks. With this in mind, keep in mind that the final results of a Brazilian butt lift can take up to a year to develop. The results of a Brazilian butt lift are long lasting if the patient lives a healthy lifestyle and continues to stay within 5 to 10 pounds of their goal weight. Gaining a significant amount of weight can cause the fat cells to swell and no longer provide the same natural-looking lines they did after the Brazilian butt lift, while losing significant weight can shrink them, leading to a flat or sagging look.
Patients who want a Brazilian butt lift may also consider other body contouring procedures in order to get the full silhouette they want. Breast augmentation is a common choice, while focused liposuction can remove fat from specific areas to create an overall curvier figure. While adding volume to the buttocks is an ideal way to counteract sagging after significant weight loss, removing lax skin is a more appropriate approach for the belly. A tummy tuck can create a flatter, more toned-looking midsection. Various tucks, augmentations, and lifts—such as a breast lift—can be combined into a Mommy Makeover to counter the effects of pregnancy and childbirth.
