A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) reshapes and redesigns the curves of a person’s buttocks. If the look and shape of your butt just aren’t what you want, why not make changes? A shapely backside is a highly desirable beauty ideal, especially with so many celebrities raving about the procedure.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
This popular cosmetic procedure doesn’t actually lift the patient’s butt. Instead, it adds curves to the rear end by taking fat from the patient’s waistline and using it to add volume to their butt.
This fat grafting process is one of the best things about this lift because patients simultaneously lose some fat around their hips and stomach and gain more fat exactly where they want it. It’s like getting two body makeovers for one.
What Is the Procedure Like?
To begin your Brazilian butt lift, your surgeon will inject an anesthetic into the areas around the waist, stomach, and hips for the fat removal process. This special numbing solution blocks sensation in the target areas and makes sure the fat isn’t damaged during the process.
The next step involves using liposuction to remove the fat and inject it into the buttocks. Once this step is finished, your surgeon will smooth and shape the fat so that your backside looks natural without any lumps or bumps.
Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift
This procedure is so popular for many reasons. First of all, it’s customizable. You can enlarge your buttocks as much or as little as you want. On the other hand, traditional butt augmentation surgeries involve synthetic implants, which are only available in specific shapes and sizes. Speak to your surgeon about your aesthetic goals and bring a picture or two to the consultation.
People also love this cosmetic procedure because it’s minimally invasive and provides long-lasting results without much recovery or downtime. Scarring is also minimal with this option!
A Brazilian butt lift also sculpts both the waist and buttocks, basically affording patients a 2-in-1 cosmetic procedure that lasts several years (and sometimes even decades).
How Long Do Results Last?
BBL results can last several decades and even be permanent as long as the fat transfer is done correctly. This is why it’s vital you find a well-known professional plastic surgeon who knows where to place the fat in order to give those cells the best chance of “survival” in their new location.
Also, if you’d like to preserve your results, do your best to maintain a consistent weight following the procedure.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
If you’re in good overall health with a BMI under 30, you may be an excellent candidate for a Brazilian butt lift. Ideal candidates also lead healthy lifestyles and exercise regularly. You cannot smoke or drink alcohol for some time before your procedure, and smoking afterward can lengthen your recovery time.
