The 4 Biggest Advantages of Brazilian Butt Lifts

BBL Surgery Meaning

A BBL is a procedure uses fat from other regions on the body and transfers it to the buttocks. It can be an excellent way for patients suffering from a sagging or small behind, to improve their body contours with a perkier and fuller backside.

This procedure utilizes both liposuction and fat transfer to reshape and lift the butt, and to give it more volume. To begin this process, viable fat is taken from regions such as the thighs, abdomen, or flanks. An optimal liposuction technique will be used to best ensure that the harvested fat cells survive the transfer. Smart Lipo can possibly be used after the fat has been removed, to further refine the figure.

The harvested fat is then processed and purified before reentering the body. Only a fraction of the cells are considered quality fat that can be injected. Lastly, the fat is then injected into various areas on the buttocks and at different depths, to achieve the best results.

Ideal Candidates for a BBL Surgery

Many patients choose Brazilian butt lift surgery because it is a more natural option than implants and it can address the following issues:

  • Flat or sagging buttocks
  • A behind that is small or disproportionate
  • Buttocks that are asymmetrical
  • A bottom that has changed shape or lost volume due to weight loss or age

In general, good candidates for this surgery include both men and women who are in good health and have enough excess fat on other areas of the body to transfer to the buttocks.

BBL Surgery Risks

Every medical operation comes with a certain degree of danger. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports that there is not one single danger linked with fat transfer buttock augmentation.

Among the risks associated with BBL surgery are:

  • Bruising
  • Stretch markings
  • Infection
  • Clots of blood form
  • Extremely high levels of blood loss
  • Complications related to the heart and lungs
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Fat embolism (injected fat moves into the bloodstream and travels to the lungs)
  • Complications that might arise from having liposuction or receiving anaesthetic
  • a death of the fat or of the surrounding tissue

The Brazilian butt lift procedure is very prevalent and is typically considered to be “harmless.” The unfortunate reality is that every type of cosmetic surgery carries with it the potential for adverse consequences and problems.

BBL Surgery Recovery Process

Initially after the surgery, patients can expect to experience some swelling and bruising. They should should refrain from sitting on their buttocks for about 3 weeks. Although the recovery process is different for every patient, most patients are able to resume normal day to day activities in about 4 weeks. Our cosmetic surgeons are highly trained experts and will provide further instructions as it pertains to your surgery.

BBL Surgery Benefits

BBL surgery is the talk of the cosmetic surgery industry right now, and it’s no wonder. These procedures offer all of the benefits of more traditional augmentation procedures as well as some advantages all of their own. Read on for the Brazilian Buttlift’s four biggest benefits:

1. The Most Natural Look And Feel

Rather than implanting bulky silicone bags, a Brazilian Butt Lift injects some of your own living fat cells (previously harvested from a different “donor” area of your body) into your buttocks. The fat grafts in naturally for a completely authentic look and feel that is indistinguishable from the surrounding tissue. Brazilian Butt Lifts are every bit as permanent as traditional implants, without any of the associated drawbacks.

2. Free Liposuction

A Brazilian Butt Lift works by re-injecting your own fat into your buttocks, and that fat has to come from somewhere. A butt lift not only helps your butt look rounder and perkier, it also helps you get rid of a little excess fat from somewhere else, at no additional charge. And since modern liposuction is a very flexible procedure, you can remove fat from almost any body part you want, leading to advantage number two . . .

3. A Better Figure Overall

Smart Brazilian Butt Lift patients use their liposuction to their best advantage, smoothing out unsightly bulges, streamlining their figures, and bringing out the underlying muscle. Many women wish they had tight, visible abs but seem unable to develop them, no matter how many crunches they do. The reason for this is that the abdominal muscles are frequently subtle in women, and even a very developed set can be obscured by even just a little fat. If you are one of these women, take heart—stomach liposuction can not only make you look thinner overall, it can also bring out the muscle that you never know you had. Even if you are very satisfied with the shape of your body you may find that getting liposuction around your thighs or waist can really help accentuate your new butt and give you an even more dramatic hourglass shape.

4. Natural Aging

For years, cosmetic surgeons have been happily telling women that implants (whether breast implants or buttock implants) are well worth the money, because they are permanent. One treatment, they claim, is all you’ll ever need. Of course that isn’t always true, but even assuming you have good luck with your implants and they never leak, rupture, or slide out of place, there still may come a time when the longevity of implants seem less beneficial than you might think, and that is when you age. Aging can be an uncomfortable thing to think about, but sooner or later, it is going to happen. When it does, your once perky, full implants may start to look out of place and unnatural against the rest of your figure. At that point, you’ll have to chose between either having more surgery to remove them or wearing more concealing—and less flattering—clothing. Brazilian Butt Lifts, on the other hand, provide augmentation that ages with you naturally and helps you look your best every step along the way.

The rate that a surgeon charges for buttock augmentation will depend on his or her level of experience, the particular surgery that is performed, as well as the geographic location of the practice.

Although the majority of health insurance policies do not cover buttock enlargement or any difficulties that may arise from it, many plastic surgeons do provide patient financing plans; therefore, it is important to inquire about these options.

Costs associated with buttock augmentation may include the following:

  • Cost of the surgeon
  • Costs associated with using a hospital or a surgical facility
  • Costs of anesthesia
  • Medical prescriptions and their filling
  • Garments to wear after surgery
  • Any specialized pillows that could be necessary for your rehabilitation if you have them.
  • Diagnostic procedures
