What Happens If I Lose Weight After A Brazilian Butt Lift?

Learn More About Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

BBL Surgery

Right now, the Brazillian Butt Lift is one of the hottest procedures in Miami and around the world. People who have struggled to build up a shapely bottom through targeted workouts, who have experienced tissue changes and sagging after weight loss, or who are just genetically predisposed to small, flat buttocks are often great candidates for BBL plastic surgery. The benefits include results that look and feel natural along with nearly invisible scars.

Women are able to completely reinvent their figures with this multifaceted approach to liposuction and fat transfer. Removing fat from areas where it is unwanted such as the abdomen, thighs, flanks and back mean that patients can not only create curvy volume in the buttocks but they can also shrink the waistline and improve contours in many areas at once for a dramatic transformation.

Planning Your Procedure

A common question people have about Brazillian Butt Lift is whether weight loss will negatively affect their results after they have recovered from their procedure. First, it is important to know that achieving and maintaining a stable, healthy body weight before undergoing a Brazillian Butt Lift is recommended.

You and your surgeon will want to know what your typical weight and fat distribution is like when planning your procedure. As well, if a person is actively dieting and trying to lose weight at the time of the surgery, the body will be burning up its own fat stores and physiologically, that means that it cannot optimally heal itself after surgery. For the first 6 weeks after butt lift surgery, the body will be actively healing, inflammation and swelling will be present, and donor fat cells which have been grafted will not yet be established and thriving.

Avoid Weight Loss

It is recommended that you maintain a healthy, stable weight at that time and do not diet. It will take between 3-6 months to see your final results and up to a year for fat cells to establish good blood supply and achieve permanency.

One of the best things about a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is that the transferred fat is living tissue which will look, feel and behave as regular fat cells. Significant weight changes will affect their size. Once completely healed, the grafted fat cells you have should also expand and increase in size again when you gain weight. It is best to avoid weight loss if you can immediately post op when transferred cells are fragile. If you have some excess weight that you want to lose, talk to your Plastic surgeon about planning to do so and the best timing for that.

Weight Loss After BBL

Once the injected fat has achieved blood supply and becomes viable or alive after a year, the results would last for many years. The transferred fat would act just like other fat cells in the body. If you happen to lose weight, the effects would be spread throughout your body, affecting the transferred fat too and causing the cells there to shrink. As the buttocks lose volume due weight loss, it would affect BBL outcomes.

On the other hand, weight gain will make all the fat cells in the body expand, including the transferred fat cells. This happens as the calories turn into fat that is stored in the cells. This clearly means you can expect that your derriere would gain volume with weight gain. So if you have experienced weight loss after BBL and want to restore the results, you need to gain weight carefully. This can help restore the attractive derriere you achieved through the procedure.
