Learn More About Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

Brazilian Butt Lift

Whether you want to enhance the size of your buttocks or simply want to reverse the signs of aging by firming up your backside, there are a number of ways to enhance your posterior. While exercise can certainly help, it is often not possible to achieve your desired look this way as a result of genetics and time. As a result, buttock injections have gained popularity in recent years. The injection of a person’s own fat cells into their hips and bottom is a common surgical procedure to increase size and reshape the form. While fillers and even silicone have reportedly been utilized for butt injections, the only safe and FDA approved method of butt injections is a fat grafting procedure otherwise known as, Brazilian Butt Lift or, BBL.

What is a BBL?

A BBL is a safe and natural buttocks enhancement option, which makes use of a patient’s own, natural body fat. As a result, unlike the silicone gel implants used for buttocks implants, the BBL looks and feels natural. The fat used for this procedure is removed from other parts of the body using liposuction, and transferred to the posterior where it permanently adds volume and curves in all the right places. As an added bonus, liposuction can reduce unwanted fat from stubborn areas such as the waist and thighs which further add to the sculpted look.

How does it work?

During this two-step procedure, very small incisions are first made in the skin to perform liposuction. Small tubes, called cannulas, are inserted in order to gently remove fat. Once removed, the second step involves injecting the purified fat into the buttocks through small incisions.

Ideal Candidates

Women of all shapes and sizes are candidates for BBL, as it is possible to take fat from various parts of the body, however, ideal candidates will have ample pockets of excess fat to be harvested for the procedure. Obesity may increase certain risks associated with surgery therefore your plastic surgeon will talk to you about ideal weight ranges for safety and optimal results.

Potential Risks

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications related to fat transfer for buttocks. Although rare, considerations such as the risk of fat embolism and its prevention will be discussed during your consultation.

Recovery Time

Due to the natural materials and minimal incisions, buttocks augmentation with fat injections is considered to be less invasive than butt implants, leading to a faster recovery time. No matter which option you choose, it is important to expect activity limitations for at least 2-3 weeks after your procedure because great care taken during recovery ensures that fat grafts survive, and beautiful results will be long term. The extent of your recovery depends on the amount of fat removed and injected.

Weight Loss

Many patients believe they should gain weight prior to the procedure in order to increase the amount of fat available, but the benefits of intentional, temporary weight gain are somewhat misrepresented as weight loss directly after the procedure may also negatively affect results.
