BBL (Fat Transfer to Buttocks)
What is a BBL?
A Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as a BBL, transfers fat from one part of the body to the buttocks using liposuction technology. Those interested in a more balanced appearance, filling cellulite dimples or simply better fitting into clothes may consider a BBL. Fat from the abdomen, hips or thighs is purified and then used to contour the glutes. You and your surgeon may choose to supplement extra fat as 20-40% of the fat reabsorbs during the healing process. This procedure is a safer and more subtle alterative to implants with a lower infection risk.
Am I A Good Candidate for a BBL Procedure?
The best candidates for are already in their ideal weight range, with healthy lifestyle habits, and have adequate fat stores to draw from. Keeping realistic expectations is important, BBL’s do not lift flesh or tighten loose skin, they simply reshape. If you are planning to become pregnant or undergo gastric bypass surgery, we recommend waiting until you reach a stable weight before considering a cosmetic BBL.
What Can I Expect With My Recovery?
Padding and compression garments are essential to optimal recovery. It is best to avoid sitting for long periods of time for several weeks post-op. You can use a donut pillow for comfortable sitting after about two weeks. Three to six months after you should be able to see permanent results.
