What is a Brazilian butt lift (aka BBL or buttock augmentation)?
In short, a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) takes unwanted fat from other parts of the body and injects it into the buttock tissues to create a more rounded contour and a more pleasing body shape. At our Pasadena Plastic Surgery center, Dr. Panossian, a board-certified expert, meticulously evaluates your hip-to-waist ratio to ensure the best results.
Are You a Good Candidate for BBL?
Ideal candidates for this type of buttock augmentation are those with enough fat in other areas of their body to harvest and transfer to the buttocks. This cosmetic procedure is an outpatient, minimally-invasive procedure that involves harvesting fat from other areas of the body and injecting it into the buttocks.
Candidates for this popular procedure are those who are looking to improve their aesthetic appearance and enhance the shape of their buttocks. The recovery process is relatively short, with most patients returning to normal activities within a few days. Patients should be in good health and have realistic expectations about the outcome of their BBL surgery.
Navigating the Risks: Understanding BBL Complications
The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a cosmetic procedure that involves harvesting fat from other areas of the body and injecting it into the buttocks. While this butt enhancement procedure can effectively achieve desired results, there are potential risks associated with it. Allergic reactions to the fat injections, risk of complications due to improper technique, risk of infection, and fat embolism are all possible complications that may arise.
Post-operative swelling and bruising may also occur and should be monitored closely. To reduce the risk of infection, antibiotic medications may be prescribed prior to surgery. It is important for patients to discuss any potential risks with their doctor before undergoing a BBL procedure.
Long-Term Results and Maintenance Post-BBL
A certain percentage of the injected fat will resorb (approximately 25-40%). For this reason, the injection is overestimated at the time of surgery so that the fat left in the butt augmentation will stay permanently at the desired size. Usually, the natural fat cells that remain in good health after 6 months will stay permanently. The great benefit of the Brazilian butt lift procedure is that it narrows the waist to give an overall improvement of body contour. This gives individuals a striking improvement and a boost in confidence when wearing bikinis or other clothing.
What is the recovery from BBL Procedure like?
The BBL recovery period is generally quick and easy. The surgery is a same-day procedure. Yond you can go home with a special compression garment designed to maintain the contour of the augmented buttock tissues. You might experience some swelling and bruising, but it should go away in a few weeks.
During the healing process, patients should avoid strenuous activity for at least two weeks after the procedure to ensure proper healing. It is important to follow all post-operative instructions given by your doctor in order to reduce the risk of infection or other complications. Additionally, wearing compression garments can help reduce swelling and improve results. With proper care, patients can expect long-lasting results from their BBL surgery.
The garment is worn for the next 6 weeks, only to be removed for washing and showering. Patients can return to work approximately 2 weeks after surgery.
