#1 Skinny BBL & Natural Brazilian Butt Lift in Chicago

"I am so happy with my skinny bbl. Natural, perky and bubbly!"

A “Skinny BBL” or “Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift” is a body contouring procedure designed for very thin or petite patients who typically have very little fat.
Like a traditional Brazilian Butt Lift, a trained surgeon will harvest fat from areas of the body and strategically transfer the fat to shape and sculpt your figure. The difference is your surgeon may need to harvest fat from additional areas such as the arms and thighs in order to get enough fat for a good result.
If you've been turned down for Skinny BBL surgery because you've been told you don't have enough fat, you may need a Skinny BBL specialist at Chicago Breast & Body Aesthetics. Chicago area residents and patients from all over the country come to see Dr. Anh-Tuan Truong and Dr. Kevin Lin for the Skinny BBL procedure because of their expertise and advanced techniques and natural Brazilian Butt Lift results!

The Benefits of Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

A Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift is like getting TWO procedures in one. It is the ultimate way to enhance your buttocks and hips and your tummy, back, and waist at the same time. Even if you are slender and thinner, you can have the shape you desire.

  • Removes fat from areas you don’t want. Getting Lipo360 and a Skinny BBL removes fat from areas you don’t want and transfers them to areas that you do to give you the curves in all the right places.
  • Natural looking results. Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift uses your fat to sculpt your new figure. Unlike implants that can look and feel fake, your fat is soft and supple and will give you safe, natural results.
  • Long lasting results. The fat doesn’t go away. We get on average 70-80% fat taken with our technique, and most patients will have permanent results.  As long as you follow your surgeon’s instructions and maintain a healthy diet and exercise, your Brazilian butt lift results will last.

Happy Patient Reviews

"Dr. T and his team are absolutely amazing. I had my initial consultation with Monika and she was so supportive and never once made me feel pressured. After deciding Dr. T was going to be the perfect choice for giving me the results I wanted, I met with him and his nurse Lauren to finalize things before surgery. Again, Dr.T and Lauren made me feel so comfortable. Surgery was a breeze and Lauren and Monika were there for me for any questions I had during healing! Dr. T is a true artist. I have super natural results and a better belly button than my mama gave me. I don't regret a thing. After two pregnancies and weight fluctuations, I was so unhappy in my own skin. Dr. T has made me look and feel beautiful again."

"When I became interested in breast augmentation, Dr T was the first surgeon to peak my interest, however; he wasn't my first consultation. After meeting, I immediately disregarded the other surgeon and knew this was where I wanted to move forward. We scheduled that exact day.
Monika listened to my concerns and questions keenly and she along with Lauren have made themselves so available to me. I legit text them out of the blue like "OKAY WAIT WHAT ABOUT.." & they've never once made me feel like I was a bother or asking a silly question. They were extremely kind while remaining professional. I actually decided AFTER my pre-op that I wanted to do something different and Monika made it happen! On operation day, the entire team was warm and welcoming -
from the nurses to the anesthesiologist. They also proved to care about my health & well being, which put me at total ease. My first follow up was with Dr Lin and he was also wonderful to work with. Dr T is an artist and dare I say perfectionist, which I personally can appreciate. My husband was skeptical but even he felt good about everything after meeting and speaking with everyone.

I breastfed 4 children for a combined total of 7 years and I finally have full breasts again - with no milk!!

I'm eternally grateful to the entire staff, front desk included."

"I had a reduction by Dr. T., it was a really easy process. The staff was very approachable, professional and responsive. I appreciated the quality of care and follow up visits. I am extremely happy with the results. I believed in his talents and my results reflect that talent too."

Meagan W.


"I went to Dr Truong for my neck and chin liposuction, it’s been almost three months and I couldn’t be happier with my results! My experience has been positive from beginning to end, I am very impressed with the overall process. His entire staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and highly responsive. Dr Truong is very kind and professional, I appreciate him answering my questions and making me feel at ease before and after my surgery. 10/10 would definitely recommend! ⭐️"

What's the difference between a skinny bBL and a Regular BBL?

A Skinny BBL is performed in a patient who is starting with low weight or "underweight".  Having low weight makes it more difficult to harvest enough fat to achieve a noticeably good result.   Most Skinny BBL patients have a BMI of 24 or less (BMI calculator here).

If you have a low BMI or very little fat, you will need a skilled BBL surgeon who is very experienced in harvesting fat on thin patients. Our Skinny BBL surgeons employ special techniques to harvest enough for your BBL safely.  In addition to aggressive liposuction, your surgeon may suggest harvesting fat from additional areas, including the inner thighs, knee area, and arms.

Dr. Truong or Dr. Lin may suggest gaining weight before your procedure.

For an accurate assessment of what you can achieve, schedule a consultation with Dr. Truong or Dr. Lin.


What's the difference between a regular bbl and skinny bbl

Can I get a good result from a Skinny BBL procedure?

In general, patients getting Skinny BBL are looking to add more volume and projection to the buttocks, providing a perkier, athletic and youthful, and proportional figure. The shape is often more important than volume. Some FDA-approved fillers can be used in conjunction with your natural fat to achieve a fuller result.  Your BBL surgeon will discuss these options with you during your consultation.

How much fat do I need to transplant for a Skinny BBL?

The amount of fat needed depends on body type and aesthetic goals; as little as 200cc of healthy fat per side can make a noticeable difference in some patients.  A skilled Skinny BBL surgeon can usually harvest 500cc of healthy fat for each side, which is enough for a dramatic result in most thin patients.

What is the recovery time?

After Skinny BBL, most patients can return to work in about seven days, with total activity and recovery occurring around 4-6 weeks. Once your body fully heals, your results are typically fully realized at the six month mark. Your surgeon will give you specific post-operative instructions.

When will I see my results & will the fat last?

After a Skinny BBL, you can expect to see results almost immediately.

As long as the fat is healthy, the longevity of the results should be the same as BBL in higher-weight patients.  After a Skinny BBL, it will be very important to follow your surgeon’s post-op instructions carefully, including not sitting or putting pressure on the fat for at least 4 to 6 weeks in order to maximize fat take and maximize your results.

What is the cost for a Skinny BBL?

How much does Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Cost in Chicago, Illinois? The cost of Skinny BBL is typically the same as a standard BBL procedure performed on a normal or patient with a higher BMI. The cost of this procedure can range between $11,000 to $14,000 or more. This is because even though less volume of fat can be harvested, the process of harvesting fat is actually more difficult and potentially time-consuming. Harvesting fat in very thin patients definitely requires specialized skill that not all BBL surgeons possess.  In some cases, Skinny BBL can cost more if fat harvesting must be done in multiple or additional areas.
