Why have a
Brazilian butt lift?
Brazilian butt lift is a specialized surgery procedure that transfers unwanted fat from other areas of the body to the buttock area, reshaping and resizing it. It can also help reshape the surrounding areas, such as the hips, lower back, and thighs.
Benefits of a BBL Surgery
■Reshape the curves of your buttock area for a more full and round look
■Eliminate stubborn fat pockets on the midsection of the body
■Achieve the hourglass figure so any cloth looks fit and aesthetically pleasing
■Improve the curves and proportions of the whole body by balancing the fat distribution
One of the most common reasons to have a Brazilian Butt Lift is for better shape and size. However, not everyone can be fitted with one due to age restrictions or medical conditions. You must know that your body will respond well before going through this procedure, to make sure everything goes smoothly.
In general, you are likely a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift if you agree with the following:
■You want a fuller look in your buttock area
■You prefer more “natural” results without the use of implants
■You don’t have sagging skin and it looks like a good skin tone in the hips and buttocks
■You have some fat deposits in other areas to harvest for injection into the buttocks
■You have the conditions and the support system to avoid sitting for several weeks after surgery
Some people are not bothered by excess, sagging skin on the buttocks or thighs and so BBL is a more suitable option. However, if you’re looking to address loose skin on your buttock and thigh area then it may be better for you to consider undergoing surgery that addresses these concerns like TBLP which stands for Thigh & Butt Lift Procedure.
On the other hand, if the patient is very lean, she or he may not have enough fat to harvest to get bigger butts; therefore this might not be the best option for them. In those cases, surgically implanted silicone bags is the way to achieve a larger buttock.
In comparison, there are many potential risks associated with butt implants, including a higher risk for infection and capsular contracture. Buttock implants can also look less natural than the skilled Brazilian butt lift procedure that is done on patients in need of more volume to fill out their cheeks or buttocks area.
Brazilian butt lift surgery is a complex cosmetic procedure that requires an extensive understanding of fat transfer techniques. Not all doctors who practice cosmetic surgeries have been trained in this highly specialized area, so do your homework before choosing one to perform the Brazilian butt lift on you!
Suggested steps include looking at the number of Brazilian butt lifts each surgeon has done previously as well as viewing patients’ after photos; this will help you get an idea about how skilled they are with this type of operation.
Cosmetic surgeons often have a distinct aesthetic style that they use to sculpt their patients. To help you get an idea of what your surgeon might be like, take some time before the appointment and do research on past cases with similar features as yours. The before and after photos of previous patients are a great way to gauge the different aesthetic styles that each cosmetic surgeon has.
A Brazilian butt lift involves three basic steps:
1-Fat is removed from the hips, lower back, thighs, abdomen, and/or other areas with liposuction
2-The extracted fat is purified and prepared for transfer
3-The cosmetic surgeon injects fat into specific points on the buttocks to increase volume and improve the shape
Surgery is often performed as an outpatient procedure, with general anesthesia or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia. It’s common for a portion of the injected fat not to “take” in its new location. For this reason, an experienced cosmetic surgeon may initially inject slightly more fat than needed so that your final results most closely achieve your goals.
During this time, you will need to sleep on your stomach or side, and either lie this way or stand for all activity except using the toilet. When you are ready, your surgeon will allow you to sit in a modified position, using a “donut” seat or placing a pillow under your thighs to avoid pressure on the buttocks. Normal sitting activity is typically allowed after eight weeks.
If you follow your cosmetic surgeon’s instructions, you should be able to resume light daily activities within one week after surgery and return to work within 10 to 14 days.
Brazilian Butt Lift results are meant to last for many years. Fat cells removed with liposuction may not return to the area easily, and fat cells that survive the transfer to the buttocks will remain for years to come. However, significant weight fluctuations can affect your results, so you should maintain a stable weight to keep your results looking their best.
Results are typically final within 6 months of surgery after residual swelling has gone away and you are fully healed. By this time, your curvier buttocks and improved lower body proportions will be noticeable in how you look and in the way clothing fits.
When performed by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, a Brazilian butt lift is a rewarding procedure with long-lasting results.
