How to Make the Most of Your Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Results

Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a surgical procedure in which fat from other areas of the body is injected into the buttocks to increase their size and fullness. As more and more people opt for BBL as opposed to other procedures to enhance their backside, it’s helpful to know what you should actually expect about the procedure to make an informed decision. As with any medical procedure, it is vital to research the risks and benefits beforehand. It is also important that patients understand that results vary based on age, health status, overall weight or size, and the patient’s overall lifestyle.

How Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Works

BBL makes it possible for women to achieve a larger, rounder, and more shapely backside. The procedure requires patients to undergo liposuction to extract extra fat from areas like the abdomen. Once it’s purified for optimal results, that fat is injected into the buttocks to increase their size and fullness.

The procedure has gained popularity over the past decade as it is relatively safe, affordable, and quick. It may also cost less than invasive surgery to enhance the buttocks.

However, it is not a guaranteed procedure, and depending on a patient’s body type, a Brazilian butt lift may not have the desired effect. With proper research and preparation, your BBL experience will result in great-looking results free of complications.

What Happens During the Procedure?

During a Brazilian butt lift procedure, liposuction removes fat from an area the patient has excess fat, such as the abdomen or thighs. Next, the surgeon takes the fluid that had been liposuctioned and spins it in a centrifuge. This separates out the viable fat cells from other fluids that may have been removed during the procedure, such as red blood cells. Then they will perform a kind of reverse liposuction in various parts of the buttocks to enhance their shape and size with the patient’s own fat.

While the Brazilian butt lift is considered a minimally invasive procedure, it still might require the use of general anesthesia depending on your surgical plan.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Recovery Process

Recovery time for BBL can vary depending on the patient’s lifestyle and overall health. Typically it takes several days of avoiding sitting directly on the treatment area, but the small incisions used during the procedure heal quickly and do not leave much of a scar.

Patients will feel soreness and discomfort during recovery. The main reason patients should consider BBL is to improve their quality of life. Most BBL patients should be able to return to work in two weeks or less.

Are BBL Results Permanent?

The BBL results are essentially permanent. During the initial recovery period up to about 3 months, the fat will continue to change and settle in the buttocks. Not all of the fat will survive the transfer process, leaving up to 70% of the injected fat in the desired area upon full recovery. If you gain or lose a considerable amount of weight, your results may change for the worse, so we encourage people to be at a stable weight prior to undergoing BBL.
