Tummy Tuck With Brazilian Butt Lift

with DrBfixin in Long Island, NY

The abdomen and buttocks are two body areas that patients frequently consult with Dr. B wanting to enhance. Often, the patients believe that they cannot be addressed during the same surgery. However, in the right patients, Dr. Blyer can perform surgery on the abdomen and buttocks during the same surgical session. This includes combining a tummy tuck and a Brazilian butt lift, a procedure sometimes called a BBL tummy tuck. Cameo Surgery Center provides the best tummy tuck with Brazilian butt lift Long Island & NYC offers.

Overview: Tummy Tuck With BBL

Combining surgeries is not uncommon. It is frequently done within all surgical fields based on the patient and their needs. Not all patients will qualify for a combined procedure or a specific combination, but those who do can often save, time, money, and recovery time by combining cosmetic surgeries.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery—or abdominoplasty—is a cosmetic surgery that removes extra skin from the lower abdomen. It also tightens separated abdominal muscles, a condition known as diastasis recti. This helps provide a flatter stomach, tone the abdomen, and repair the damage pregnancy causes to the body.

A tummy tuck involves a hip-to-hip incision usually made below the panty line. Depending on the extent of the procedure, Dr. B may preserve and reposition the belly button or recreate it. The surgery may also remove C-section scars, stretch marks, and loose skin on the lower abdomen.

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift—commonly abbreviated as BBL—uses liposuction to collect fat from various areas of the body. Once Dr. Blyer has enough fat based on the patient’s goals, it is purified and Dr. B injects it into the buttocks using a thin liposuction cannula. This helps augment the buttocks, correct asymmetry or the shape of the buttocks, and overall sculpt the body’s contours.

Cameo Surgery Center and Dr. B are the top providers of Brazilian butt lift surgery in the Greater NYC area. Dr. Blyer serves as co-chair of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery’s BBL Safety Committee. He is also one of the only plastic surgeons in the United States to use ultrasound during BBL surgery to ensure precise injection of the fat.


Candidates for a tummy tuck with BBL will first need to qualify for each procedure individually. This means that they have excess skin on the abdomen and enough fat to transfer into the buttocks. Dr. B can help the patient determine the type of tummy tuck that will benefit them most.

Good candidates for a tummy tuck with Brazilian butt lift surgery tend to be in overall good health and exhibit qualities such as:

  • Do not smokeHave realistic expectations
  • Fully understands the procedure and its benefits and risks
  • Do not plan to have more children
  • Have any medical conditions well managed
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Are at or near their goal/ideal weight (no major weight loss or gain planned)

At a consultation appointment, Dr. B will determine if a patient is a good candidate for a tummy tuck with BBL in NYC. He may also make specific recommendations based on a patient’s medical history and health such as starting or stopping certain medications or supplements, obtaining medical clearances, or making a lifestyle change.

Benefits & Risks

Combining a tummy tuck and BBL comes with both benefits and risks like the surgeries themselves. Dr. Blyer and the patient will work to determine if the benefits outweigh the risks in their particular circumstances. For most healthy patients, it is safe to undergo both procedures either separately or together.

The benefits of a tummy tuck with Brazilian butt lift include:

  • Flatter, tighter abdomen
  • Correction of diastasis recti
  • Increased buttock projection
  • Removal of excess skin and fat
  • May remove stretch marks
  • Create rounder buttocks
  • Fill in hip dips
  • Address buttock asymmetry or shape abnormalities
  • Fit into clothing better
  • Overall body contour enhancement
  • See the final results sooner
  • Less recovery time than two separate surgeries
  • Only one session under general anesthesia
  • Fewer risks overall
    Costs less
  • Requires less time off work
  • Performed by Long Island’s top tummy tuck and BBL surgeon

Risks are present during any surgical procedure. While minimal for most patients, it is still important to know, understand, and make an informed decision based on the possible complications. Major complications are rare. The risks of a combined tummy tuck with Brazilian butt lift include:

  • Infection
  • Seroma (fluid collection)
  • Hematoma (severe or unexpected bruising)
  • Visible or raised scarring
  • Complications associated with general anesthesia
  • Fat embolism
  • Bleeding
  • Poor healing or result

Wonder If Tummy Tuck With Brazilian Butt Lift Works The Best For You?


During surgery, patients are under general anesthesia. Thus, they will feel no pain. Immediately after surgery, the anesthesia and numbing agents often keep the patient comfortable for the rest of the day.

Post-operative pain after a tummy tuck with BBL is expected. Dr. Blyer prescribes pain medication to help keep patients comfortable. Though, patients need to know that combining a tummy tuck and BBL can lead to an intense recovery. However, patients do tend to experience a shorter recovery than if they underwent each procedure at different times.

A Brazilian butt lift can help contribute to creating an hourglass figure. Often considered a woman’s ideal physique, the hourglass figure relies on having hips roughly proportionate with the shoulders. Modern aesthetics also value plump buttocks. When Dr. Blyer transfers fat during a BBL surgery, he places fat in the hip area too.

A combined tummy tuck with Brazilian butt lift surgery ranges from $24,999 and $30,949. The cost depends on the type of tummy tuck surgery necessary. Additional procedures or other variations may have other costs.

Recovering after the combined procedure is unique because the patient is recovering in multiple areas. Dr. B will provide specific instructions to each patient based on their procedure. Some common post-op instructions include:

  • Wear compression garment
  • Sit only on a BBL pillow
  • Do not lay flat initially
  • Remain hunched over for one to two weeks to prevent stress on the tummy tuck incision
  • Side sleep unless the patient has proper materials to sleep in other positions
  • Do not submerge the incisions and wait to shower for at least two days
  • Eat as normally as possible
  • Stay hydrated
  • Walk every few hours
  • Attend follow-up appointments

Yes, Brazilian butt lift surgery is sometimes included in a mommy makeover surgery. Mommy makeover surgery refers to a combination procedure that addresses the breasts and abdomen. In the right patient and depending on the other procedures involved, Dr. B can often perform a BBL at the same time.
