BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift)
A Brazilian butt lift is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without implants. Excess fat is removed from the hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs with liposuction, and a portion of this fat is then strategically injected into the buttocks.
Unlike other forms of buttock surgery, such as placement of silicone buttock implants, a Brazilian butt lift is targeted for providing more natural-looking results while also creating more roundness in your backside.
It can also help address certain issues, such as the sagging and shapelessness that sometimes occur with age.
You might also consider the procedure if you’re to avoid the imbalances that make it difficult to wear clothing comfortably.
Another benefit to Brazilian butt lifts is that there is a lower risk of infection compared to silicone buttock implants.
A BBL starts with liposuction, where a surgeon will suck fat out of areas in the body then process and re-inject it into the buttocks and hips or in a desired area.The fat is collected in a specialized system that separates live fat cells from liposuction fluid. That fat is then injected in the marked areas of the butt.
The procedure requires a few very small incisions. If the patient has no enough fat than shaping with ‘implant’ or ‘filler ‘ is possible.
Recovery happens in three stages: first few days, first several weeks, and first several months. During the first few days, you can generally go back to work, the first several weeks, most of the swelling reduces and the bruising starts to heal. This is when you can go back to the gym and are approved for travel. The last stage is where any remaining swelling will resolve and the transferred fat has pretty much settled.
After operation you should avoid pressure on areas where there is grafted fat. If you’re a back or side sleeper, this means you’ll need to sleep on your stomach and avoid strenuous exercise for several weeks.
