Everyone Is Talking About the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

If you follow models or attractive celebrities on social media, you have probably heard of BBL surgery. BBL stands for Brazilian butt lift, and it is a wonderful physique-enhancing popular procedure.

At Galanis Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills we perform skilled Brazilian butt lift surgery for many patients who want to enhance their curves and give their self esteem a lift as well. This bbl procedure is for you if you want an hourglass figure with a larger backside and slimmer midsection!

How Does a Butt Augmentation Work

Brazilian butt lift surgery has two main purposes – remove excess fat cells from unwanted areas of your body and increase the size of your butt. With a Brazilian butt lift, we can accomplish both of these goals in one procedure if you have the adequate fat stores.

During a Brazilian butt lift, you are placed under general anesthesia. We use fat transfer techniques that extract fat from unwanted areas like your midsection, outer thighs, and back. Then, we process your bodies fat cells in a special machine to purify it and prepare it for fat transfer.

Once the fat cells are purified, we finish the fat grafting by injecting the extracted fat into your buttocks to enhance the shape and size of your butt. Our skilled injection techniques ensure that the injected fat you receive will deliver a large, round, and even backside after your surgery.

This is an outpatient procedure, meaning you get to go home after your butt lift is complete. However, you will need a ride home from the surgery center.

The Benefits of Getting a BBL

There are many advantages to choosing a Brazilian butt lift bbl to enhance your figure.

Match Current Trends

Everyone is talking about how Brazilian butt lift surgery can drastically enhance your appearance. There is a reason this procedure is so popular. The latest trends point toward having a curvy figure, including a large butt with a slim waist and shapely thighs.

Butt lifts give your backside a more even, round shape. This is difficult to achieve without BBL surgery. While there are some natural methods of reshaping your butt, like exercise, these methods can take a long time and produce mild results. Butt lift surgery delivers great results instantly.

Noticeable Slimming Effects

You also lose extra body fat when you undergo a Brazilian butt lift. We knock out two goals with one procedure by harvesting excess fat from unwanted areas of your body. If you want to look slim and toned in your midsection with a curvy butt, this is the surgery for you.

Shorter Recovery Period Following Your Procedure

BBL surgery has a shorter recovery period than some other butt enhancement procedures, like getting implants. This quick recovery allows you to resume normal activities earlier and show off your gorgeous results.

Long-Lasting Results To Impress

While this is deemed a semi permanant procedure, your results will last for a long time. On average, patients see great results from their BBL surgeries for up to 15 years. This gives you plenty of time to wear the clothing you want to wear, show off your figure, and enhance your physique with additional techniques like exercise.

In addition to Brazilian butt lifts, there are other procedures that can be performed by cosmetic surgeons to enhance your buttock region.

A buttock enhancement gluteal augmentation is a surgical procedure that enhances the contour, size, and shape of the buttocks.

This procedure involves the use of buttock implants, fat grafting, or a combination of both.

Buttock implants are specially made silicone-filled devices that are surgically inserted either in the muscle or above the gluteal muscle on each side.

Some Frequently Asked Questions

Our patients often have similar questions when it comes to a Brazilian butt lift. We want to give you all of the information upfront so you can choose the best procedure for yourself.

During your personalized consultation with our cosmetic surgeon, we will evaluate your medical history and current physique to determine whether this is the right cosmetic surgery for you.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Brazilian butt lifts.

Why is the Brazilian butt lift such a popular cosmetic surgery procedure?

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) involves only a few small incisions on each buttock, resulting in minimal BBL scarring. Since it doesn’t entail a major procedure with a large incision, the likelihood of significant complications is diminished.

How Long Will It Take to Recover from Brazilian butt lift procedures?

After your Brazilian butt lift surgery, you should expect to take about two weeks off before you return to work. If you work a job with strenuous activities and lots of physical activity, you may need three or four weeks off.

With some professions, you may be able to use a standing desk or special pillow to increase your comfort.  You will need to wear a compression garment following plastic surgery as well.

Complete recovery from a Brazilian butt lift typically takes between two and three months. It’s essential to bear in mind that individual differences may lead to variations in recovery times.

Adhere to the instructions provided by your plastic surgeon on effectively managing pain and discomfort during the recovery process.

How long are you on bed rest after a Brazilian butt lift surgery?

Ideally, it is recommended to have a caregiver with you during the initial week, especially since you may be taking prescription pain medication and unable to drive. It is crucial to refrain from sitting or lying directly on the fat graft site for the initial three weeks post-surgery.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Brazilian butt lift surgery?

Patients who have extra body fat they wish to eliminate would benefit from BBL surgery. If you have a low body fat percentage, we may not be able to harvest the appropriate amount of fat to enhance your buttocks.

In these cases, we recommend butt implants instead. We can determine this during your consultation.

You should be in generally good health before undergoing any cosmetic surgery. We will ask you to stop smoking for at least a month before your procedure. Practice healthy habits that promote a healthy lifestyle like getting enough sleep each night, eating a healthy diet, and exercising often.

You should also have realistic expectations about the procedure; while this will enhance your shape, it is not a weight loss surgery.  Plastic surgeons prefer that you are at a stable weight prior to surgery.

Can You Harvest Fat Pockets from Any Area of My Body?

Most patients wish to eliminate excess fat from their abdomens, hips, thighs, and backs during BBL surgery. Your Brazilian butt lift surgeon can execute fat harvesting from almost anywhere in your body with adequate fat tissue.

During your consultation, we will discuss fat grafting and your aesthetic goals and see what we can do to best match them.

When Will I Be Able To Resume Exercise Again After Cosmetic Surgery?

Every patient heals slightly differently, but in general, you should be able to resume your normal exercise routine six weeks after surgery. Always check with us directly if you have any specific concerns or questions.

What Is Fat Embolism And Can It Hurt Me?

A fat embolism is a disruption to blood supply in your blood vessels caused by fat globules.  To stay away from this consequence we are extremely careful not to place fat into or under the gluteus maximus muscle.

Is A Brazilian Butt Lift Safe For Me?

Performing a fat transfer is generally considered one of the safe brazilian butt lift cosmetic procedures. This is because there is no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection of the fat, and liposuction, a component of the process, is widely regarded as a highly reliable method.
