Enhancing the buttocks has become a very popular plastic surgery procedure, with many people seeking the round, shapely curves that a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) can provide. Even better, your beautifully contoured results come from your own fat cells, so you can expect long-lasting results.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift uses your own fat, harvested from your body with liposuction, to inject into your buttocks. The fat provides immediate volume and lift, but more importantly, many of these purified fat cells will make themselves at home and continue to provide these results.
How Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Work?
Your doctor will remove fat using liposuction. This fat often comes from abs and flanks to help enhance the curve between waistline and buttocks, improving the overall result.
The fat, after purification, is injected into the buttocks with a careful eye for shaping and contouring the area. About 50% of this transferred fat will graft and it will survive, meaning that up to 50% of the fat injected into your buttocks will stay there and continue to give you results.
What Makes the Brazilian Butt Lift so Popular?
With implants and other butt augmentation available, what makes the Brazilian butt lift remain such a popular procedure?
- It looks natural – no strange shapes or contours
- It‘s safer – no foreign substances injected or inserted
- No rejection – using your own cells means your body accepts them
- Body Contouring – fat harvesting can enhance your natural curves
- Amazing Results – people love the results of this procedure
Am I a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
To be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift, you should be in overall good health, a non-smoker or prepared to quit, and with no bleeding or clotting problems. Anyone who wants an enhanced, rounded butt and more shapely curves is a candidate, especially if you want your results to be impressive but natural-looking.
What is Recovery Like from a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Average recovery from a Brazilian butt lift takes about six to eight weeks. Avoid laying or sitting too much on your buttocks during this time, although we do not necessarily recommend the donut pillow that some surgeons prefer. You should make sure to stand up and move around regularly to shift your weight and take pressure off your newly grafted fat cells.
Your plastic surgeon will fit you with a compression garment to help the grafted fat stay in place and settle where you want it. You will wear this for several weeks. You will also need to avoid strenuous exercise for at least four weeks and should wait to be cleared by the doctor before returning to these activities.
