WHAT IS THE BBL?
The Brazilian butt lift, also known as the “BBL” is one of the most popular and requested procedures. This surgical procedure aims to modify the size and appearance of the buttocks as well as areas in the hips known as “hip dips.” This is achieved using your own fat removed from unwanted areas. The ideal Brazilian butt lift aims to achieve a more feminine and curvier figure.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
The ideal person for the “BBL” is one who wants to improve the shape and size of their buttocks as well as fill certain areas of the hips that need more volume. The person has to have enough body fat to be used in the desired areas. It is important that the person interested in this procedure understands all the risks and post-operative instructions as not following them could alter the result.
The “BBL” procedure consists in removing fat from areas such as the stomach, back, flanks, as well as the infamous bra fat. These fat cells are then transferred through a cannula that grafts these cells into the desired areas in the buttocks as well as “hip dips” to create more volume. This procedure takes about 3 hours.
The recovery from a butt lift is one of the most strict and delicate. It is very important that the patient does not sit or put pressure on the buttock area for a minimum of 3 weeks. This will give the fat cells enough time to implant properly, otherwise the result can be compromised.
Although you’ll be able to see an immediate change, the final results can be seen in 6 to 12 weeks. Once the fat cells have had enough time to redistribute, they will act as if they were always there.
The cost for a “BBL” can vary depending on the patient’s individual needs but it is typically: $9,000.
