An aesthetically pleasing butt is an asset most people badly desire. Many are willing to take extreme measures to achieve a nicely shaped and proportioned butt, including going to a doctor’s office for a cosmetic procedure.
By getting a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery, you can transfer unwanted fat from specific areas to your butt to give it that rounder and more contoured look.
The Brazilian butt lift is different from other butt augmentation procedures since it does not use implants. Instead, fat is transferred from areas such as the hips, back, abs, and thighs. Such a treatment, which provides long-lasting results, is practically a combination of liposuction with a fat transfer procedure.
Why Get a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Butt size and shape is heavily determined by your genetics. For example, the way your body stores fat and your bone structure both can impact the appearance of your lower body. Committing to a lifestyle may be one way to get the butt of your desires, but sometimes this step is not enough.
Brazilian butt lifts can help overcome genetic effects by reshaping your butt and its surrounding areas. Some of the main reasons people opt for these procedures are because they can:
- Enhance the curves of your body.
- Reduce the fat content in your hips, abs, or thighs.
- Make you fit better into clothes.
- Give you a youthful, attractive butt.
- Improve the proportions of your body.
Who is a Candidate For a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift is someone who has enough fat to ‘harvest.’ If you are very lean, then extracting fat to later add to your butt won’t be easy or entirely plausible.
Here are more details about ideal candidates for this procedure.
- They want to augment their butts without implants.
- They have good skin tone in the hips and butt.
- They have enough fat to harvest to inject into the buttocks.
- They are okay not being able to sit on their butt for several weeks.
How Does the Brazilian Butt Lift Work?
The Brazilian butt lift involves three distinct steps: removing excess from the areas you’d like with liposuction techniques; purifying the extracted fat; and finally, injecting the material into specific points on the butt to give it the volume and shape you desire.
Recovery from a BBL
Discomfort is usually minimal and controllable with medication post-procedure. Either way, you will not able to sit or directly lie on your butt for a couple of weeks.
You will need to sleep on your stomach or side for about two weeks after the procedure. For most of this period, you will have to remain standing for the majority of your activities, minus going to the bathroom. After some time, your physician will tell you when it’s fine to sit on a cushion or pillow to relieve pressure from your buttocks.
After eight weeks, regular sitting activity should be permitted by your doctor.
