The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedure creates the ultimate silhouette transformation. It augments your butt with your own fat.
Imagine removing unwanted fat from your stomach, back, and hips, and using that fat to create a more shapely, rounded butt. If you’ve been dreaming of a more balanced silhouette with perkier, feminine curves, BBL can help you re-contour your body.
A good candidate for BBL is anyone who is generally in good health, but desires a more shapely buttocks, and has extra fat can benefit from the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
The amount of fat volume that can be extracted and re-injected varies from person to person. Determining factors include the elasticity of your skin in the area where the fat will be transferred to, how much fat can be harvested, and what will give you the aesthetic contour you are looking proportionate to the rest of your body.
The fat removed during the first part of the procedure is harvested using specialized cannulas that protect the fat cells from damage during the process.
The fat is then processed to ensure only the highest-quality fat is transferred.
Finally, the very highest quality fat cells are injected into the buttocks, to sculpt a rounder, perkier derriere. Because the normal muscle tone and placement has been left intact through the use of local anaesthesia, the surgeon is able to sculpt beautiful buttock mounds that maintain their natural curves during movement as well as while standing still, a key detail of natural-looking Brazilian Butt Lift results.
You will need to avoid anything that thins the blood for 2 weeks prior to the procedure, for example aspirin, Motrin, vitamin E. If you bruise easily you can take an over the counter supplement arnica.
The most important thing you can do is not to sit directly on your buttocks for long periods in the first 3 weeks.
If your job requires a lot of sitting you may want to take 2 weeks off. If you stand most of the day at your job, you may be fine to go back after 3-4 days as long as you do not have to drive.
Results are long lasting, and get better with time.
There should be very little to no discomfort during the procedure since you will receive some medication by mouth prior to being numbed in the areas where the fat is harvested and transferred.
Afterward, you can expect mild soreness, similar to after an intense workout, for a few days.
Most patients feel comfortable during their recovery, and are ready to get back to normal activities within 1-2 days (such as walking, working, and social activities), and strenuous workouts (such as heavy weight-lifting and intense running) in a week or two.
