The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) or Butt Augmentation is unique from other buttock procedures because it uses your own body fat to contour the Colombian derrière instead of a gluteal implant. The fat grafting or fat transfer method allows for less recovery time and ensures natural-looking results. The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is ideal for anyone unhappy with their buttock contour with adequate fat stores to take.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
Good candidates for Brazilian butt lift surgery are people who would like to enhance the appearance and prominence of their buttocks without the need for artificial implants. These patients should have some excess body fat in parts of their body from which to draw. This often means taking fat from the flanks and lower abdominal area, which is one of the most common places where fat accumulates.
What to Expect from Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure that enhances the appearance of your buttocks. First, your plastic surgeon uses liposuction to remove excess fat from the buttocks area. Then, the extracted fat is purified and prepared for reinsertion. Finally, your surgeon injects the fat into specially selected areas that provide your desired shape. Although some fat will struggle and not “take,” your plastic surgeon accounts for this when calculating the precise amount of fat needed to create your desired result.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
After a Brazilian Butt Lift you will have swelling and soreness in the areas the fat was taken from, and a little bit in the butt too. The swelling, soreness and bruising, can last for up to a month but is much better after only 1 week. Most of our patients return to work and regular activities after 1- 2 weeks but must avoid strenuous exercise for about 3 weeks.
