What is Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
Brazilian butt lift surgery is a type of procedure that is used to reshape and enhance the appearance of the buttocks. It involves transferring fat from another area of the body – typically, the abdomen, hips, or lower back – to the buttocks, creating a more aesthetically pleasing shape. The procedure is popular among those who want to add volume to their buttocks, create a rounder shape, or reduce visible sagging.
BBL surgery is an autologous fat transfer, which uses the patient’s own fat. The fat is collected from a donor site using liposuction and is then purified and re-injected into the buttocks. This method is preferred by many patients because it allows them to use their own fat, eliminating the risk of an allergic reaction or other complications associated with foreign substances.
Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates
When it comes to deciding who is a good candidate for BBL surgery, the most important factor is a person’s overall health. Patients should be in good physical health, with no active medical conditions that could interfere with the healing process. It is also essential that the patient has realistic expectations and understands the risks associated with the procedure.
The ideal candidate for BBL surgery should also have enough fat to be harvested from another area of the body. A consultation with the surgeon will help determine the best donor site. It is important to note that people who are significantly overweight may not be good candidates for the procedure because they may not have enough donor fat to achieve the desired results.
Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
The first step in the BBL procedure is to mark the areas that will be harvested from and injected into. The fat is then harvested from the donor site using liposuction. The fat is then washed, purified, and injected into the buttocks.
The amount of fat injected into the buttocks will depend on the patient’s desired results. The surgeon will be able to determine the best amount of fat to achieve the desired outcome.
The entire procedure takes about two to three hours, and patients can expect some downtime as they heal. Most patients can return to work and other activities within a few days, though there may be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the area.
If you are considering BBL surgery, it is important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to make sure that you are a good candidate and to discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure.
