Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)
Do you like big butts and you cannot lie? The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is one of the fastest growing procedures in the nation. Its popularity continues to grow year-over-year primarily because this body-contouring phenomenon is great at enhancing a person’s figure from top-to-bottom without scarring, or the use of prosthetics. The BBL results can last years because the patient’s own body fat is used to shape and lift the buttocks, which allows those fat cells to be preserved. This procedure is the secret many celebs are turning to in order to achieve that knockout hourglass figure.
Having years of experience with fat transfer techniques, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Aisha White is able to harvest the body’s own excess fat stores from and repurpose them in areas where added thickness is preferred.
Who is a Good Candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift?
Is your butt smaller than you’d like it to be? Do you want a larger, rounder, and sexier butt that leaves a lasting impression long after you’ve left the room? Do you have a few extra pounds lingering around the waist line or on your thighs? You might be an ideal candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift.
BBL is a procedure that adds additional volume which helps to also lift and shape your butt, while simultaneously reducing fat deposits in other areas.
Patients who are of good overall health and have excess fat to be transferred generally qualify as a candidate. There is no age limit for the Brazilian Butt Lift. However, patients should be fully matured before considering the surgery, which depends more on the individual than a general age.
What’s Special About a Brazilian Butt Lift?
What makes a Brazilian butt lift such a good choice for enhancing the beauty of your butt is the precise results that the procedure is capable of producing. There are no implants involved in a Brazilian butt lift. Instead, excess body fat is harvested from one area of the body and used to add volume to the butt.
The injections are precisely made so that the size and the shape of the butt meet the patient’s desired results. Excess fat is typically harvested from around the back, thighs, or abdomen, which will also help to accentuate the new curves of your figure.
In addition, the BBL results last a long time. Patients should expect to retain about 60% to 80% of the fat transferred after about six weeks.
How a Brazilian Butt Lift Is Performed
Liposuction is used to harvest the excess fat. The area where the fat will be taken from will be determined during your consultation in our Austin office with Dr. White. Once enough fat is harvested, it will be purified using a centrifuge and made ready for the injection process.
Local anesthesia is typically used to perform a Brazilian butt lift, but general anesthesia can be used as well. Once the patient is ready, the fat is precisely injected into specific areas of the butt using a special cannula. Dr. White pays close attention to the amount of fat being injected, the depth of the injections, and how the injections affect the shape of the butt. The procedure takes around two hours to complete.
Recovering from Your Brazilian Butt Lift
Swelling and bruising are to be expected following your procedure and will dissipate over the course of your recovery. A special compression garment will need to be worn to provide additional support, protect the area, and help reduce swelling.
Most patients will need to wait a minimum of two to three weeks before they can resume their normal activities. Exercise or any activities that place pressure on the butt will need to be avoided for some time. While a majority of swelling will dissipate during the first few weeks, it can take up to six months to fully go away.
