Have you been doing countless squats or other exercises to get a more sculpted backside? Working out may help tone your buttocks, but it won’t do much to increase their size. One way to create a more shapely backside and curvier figure overall is by having a Brazilian butt lift.
A Brazilian butt lift procedure can enhance the size and shape of your butt while creating a more refined figure. Premier Liposuction in Las Vegas, NV, performs Brazilian butt lift surgery with fat transfer. Read on to learn what this means and how it can help you reach your aesthetic goals.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a plastic surgical procedure that aims to enhance the buttocks and improve the overall figure. Also known as BBL, a Brazilian butt lift can create a more pronounced hourglass figure with wider hips and a smaller waistline.
Brazilian butt lift surgery at Premier Liposuction is performed using fat transfer. This means that fat is harvested from elsewhere on the body and transplanted to the buttocks.
When fat is harvested from the midsection, it creates a smaller waistline. This fat is then placed strategically around the hips and buttocks to sculpt a curvier shape.
How Is a Brazilian Butt Lift with Fat Transfer Performed?
Are you considering Brazilian butt lift surgery? This procedure is growing in popularity, but many people don’t know what to expect when they start their BBL journey. The following is a guide to the complete Brazilian butt lift process.
Consulting with a Surgeon
Before scheduling any plastic surgical procedure, you must have a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon. We need to assess your current anatomy and discuss your desired outcome to determine whether BBL surgery is the best option for you.
Everyone has different aesthetic goals, which means BBL surgery might not be the best treatment to meet your needs. If not, you’ll be advised on any alternative options that are a better fit.
Preparing for Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
If you are deemed a good candidate for BBL surgery, you will be able to schedule the procedure and begin preparing for your treatment.
Most Brazilian butt lifts are performed under general anesthesia, which means you may need to receive medical clearance from a general physician in the weeks leading up to your surgery. This is to ensure that you’re healthy enough to be put under anesthesia.
For more minor BBL procedures, you may not be put under general anesthesia. These procedures can be performed with only local anesthesia. We will determine which type of anesthesia is necessary for your surgery during your initial consultation.
The night before your surgery, you will be instructed to stop eating and drinking anything other than water. Your stomach must be empty as an anesthetic precaution.
The BBL Procedure
Your Brazilian butt lift surgery will begin by putting you under anesthesia. Once you are fully under, small incisions will be made around the area where fat is being harvested. For most patients, this is their midsection. (Some patients have fat harvested from the thighs, upper arms, or back.)
A thin cannula, or tube, will be inserted through these incisions and work to gently remove fat. This is the liposuction part of the procedure.
When an adequate amount of fat has been harvested, the fat transfer portion of the BBL surgery can begin. First, the harvested fat is purified and prepared for transfer. Our surgeon then gently injects this fat into specific areas around the buttocks. This is done in a careful and strategic manner to create the most flattering shape for your body.
Recovery and Results
After your Brazilian butt lift, you may need to remain overnight in our plastic surgery aftercare center. This will depend largely on the extent of your procedure and the type of anesthesia that was used.
Once home, you will need to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for at least two weeks. After 10 to 14 days, you should be able to resume most normal activities. Strenuous activity, such as contact sports and certain exercises, should be avoided for about one month post-surgery.
It will take some time for the tissues to settle after a Brazilian butt lift. Most patients see the final outcome of their procedure about six months to a year after surgery.
Ideal Candidates for Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
BBL procedures are not the best course of treatment for every patient. There are certain criteria that must be met before you can be considered a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift. Ideal candidates will be reasonably close to their optimal body weight. This means that your BMI should be 30 or less.
Clients with an excessive amount of sagging skin will not be able to have a Brazilian butt lift, as this will prevent a desirable outcome. These patients may need to seek excess skin removal treatment before embarking on BBL surgery.
If you’re considering BBL surgery, you must meet with a cosmetic surgeon to confirm that the procedure is right for you. We can evaluate your buttocks and go over what your desired outcome is to determine whether a Brazilian butt lift will benefit you.
