A Brazilian butt lift, commonly called a BBL, is a highly popular procedure for men and women of all ages. It offers a natural alternative to butt implants by using your own body fat to eliminate a flat butt and enhance contours without significant downtime. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon obtains fat via liposuction, purifies the fat, and transfers it into your buttocks.
The advantages of a Brazilian butt lift include:
Because a Brazilian butt lift uses fat from other areas of your body, your surgeon can eliminate troublesome fat pockets in parts of your body that bother you.
Your Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa provider determines if you’re a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift after reviewing your medical history and cosmetic goals. They complete a physical exam to determine the best way to enhance your body contours.
You should be in good health, a non-smoker, have good skin laxity, be at a healthy body weight, and have enough body fat in other areas of your body to transfer to your butt. Some patients are better suited for butt implants vs. a Brazilian butt lift.
A Brazilian butt lift requires general anesthesia to help you fall asleep and avoid discomfort. Your surgeon uses liposuction to obtain fat from other areas of your body, such as your thighs, hips, love handles, or stomach. They then purify the fat, inject it into your butt layer by layer, and gently massage the treatment area to ensure your skin’s surface remains smooth.
A Brazilian butt lift often lasts about two to three hours, depending on the amount of fat extracted and injected into your buttocks.
Have a friend or family member drive you home after a Brazilian butt lift. It’s essential to get plenty of rest during the recovery period. Tenderness and swelling at the treatment sites are common side effects, though you can take medicines and ice the treatment areas to enhance comfort. Don’t do any strenuous physical activity until your surgeon advises.
Avoid placing weight on your butt for about two weeks after the procedure. The final results include round, shapely buttocks and appear about four to six weeks after the swelling subsides. Areas of your body that underwent liposuction appear slimmer with fewer fat pockets. Your results are long-lasting if you maintain an ideal body weight.
