A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is an exceedingly popular body contouring procedure designed to use a person’s own body fat to add volume, lift, and/or enhance the shape of their buttocks. While most commonly used to increase the fullness and projection of the buttocks, BBLs are also commonly used to address issues of asymmetry and disproportion as a result of weight loss. Utilizing liposuction to harvest the fat necessary for the BBL procedure, patients will also achieve better overall body contour at the same time.
Common areas from which fat can be harvested via liposuction are the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and arms. This fat is then injected and sculpted into the buttocks and lateral hip depressions for a more curvaceous, balanced, and cosmetically desirable appearance.
About The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
The BBL is a two-step surgical procedure involving: (1) Liposuction to harvest the fat required, and (2) Fat Grafting.
During the first step, tiny incisions are made on various areas of the body where there is an excess of fat from which we will harvest. With the use of ultrasound guided liposuction, this excess fat is safely and effectively removed from the body, resulting in improved contour and a trimmer appearance. The fat that has been harvested is then purified for use in the next step.
The second step of a BBL procedure is the transfer of this purified fat to the tissues of the buttocks during an autologous fat transfer. This involves careful planning and injection of this fat into the buttocks to allow Dr. Blaine to appropriately sculpt and augment the buttocks to achieve the patient’s’ desired result.
Patients will experience some swelling and potentially bruising following the procedure and can often return to work within 4-7 days. Results are immediately apparent, but because fat reabsorption rates are variable the buttocks will be at its largest in the first few weeks after surgery. Final results will be seen in about three to four months.
Who Should Consider a Brazilian Butt Lift?
BBLs are popular with patients who are looking to reshape their bodies and those who are interested in achieving a more curvaceous or hourglass figure.
If you are considering a procedure to:
- Increase volume of the buttocks,
- Promote roundness, fullness, and/or curves of the buttocks,
- Lift the buttocks,
then a BBL might be the procedure for you!
