If you are looking to skip out on hours upon hours at the gym building your glutes — you may love the immediate results of a Brazilian butt lift (BBL). This aesthetic enhancing procedure has recently gained quite a bit of attention, and we are here to tell you more about it.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian butt lift surgery combines liposuction and fat-grafting to add curves, volume, and lift to the buttocks. Fat-grafting has been highly glorified for its keen ability to produce natural-looking results.
Brazilian butt lifts are most commonly performed under anesthesia. Your surgeon will use liposuction to remove fat from areas of your body. Usually, the preferred areas for fat removal are the hips, stomach, and thighs. Fat is removed from these areas by creating small incisions and using a tube to suction out fat from the body. Once the fat has been removed from your body, it goes through a purification process to prepare to be injected into your buttocks. Your surgeon finishes by injecting processed fat into your buttocks to create a natural, full look.
Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian butt lifts have gained popularity because of the appealing outcomes they provide. Unlike traditional forms of buttock surgery, such as silicone implants, BBL’s are praised for their much more natural results. Additionally, patients who opt for a Brazilian butt lift often find that the procedure helps to improve sagging or lack of shape in their buttocks.
Studies show that BBL’s pose a lower risk of infection during the healing processes, as they do not utilize silicone implants. As always, it’s important to discuss the benefits, as well as the side effects of any procedure with your surgeon.
As mentioned, it is important to be aware of the potential side-effects associated with any elected procedure you choose to have done. While very unlikely, some of the risks associated with this procedure include:
- Lack of smoothness in the skin where suctioned or injected
Additionally, depending on how your body responds to fat-grafting, it is possible that you could want to have an additional surgery to retain your desired fullness should your body absorb more of the fat than you wish. Again, while it is unlikely that you would experience these side effects, we always recommend that you should thoroughly discuss them with your surgeon before proceeding with your procedure.
Are You a Good Candidate?
As always, the best person to determine if you are a good candidate for a procedure is your surgeon. There are many factors that play into determining if a BBL is right for you, but a few things your surgeon may want to ensure is that:
- You live a relatively healthy lifestyle, which includes healthy eating and regular exercise
- You are at a healthy weight for your stature
- You are a nonsmoker
- You have excess fat stored on your hips, stomach, or thighs that can be used for the procedure
Additionally, your surgeon will likely discuss if you feel comfortable in your clothes, or if you have lost your natural shape due to weight fluctuations or age.
