Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Safe?

Tired of spending hours in the gym doing squats and still not getting the results you want? You may be a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift. A Brazilian Butt Lift is a great option for those who are looking to not only shape their bottom, but also trim the waistline. This procedure uses your own body fat to enhance your shape and give you the curves you’ve always wanted.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a cosmetic procedure that uses fat from your own body to shape your backside and enhance your curves. Using your own body fat will give the most natural looking and incredible results.

Some butt lifts require implants, but this isn’t the case with the BBL. With BBL, the surgeon can remove fat from the abdomen, back, stomach, or thighs. The removed fat is then purified before it is injected into the buttocks to create a rounder, shapely contour. Having various injection points gives the doctor the ability to control the contouring and final shape.

How safe is BBL?

In general, BBL is a very safe procedure. But as with any other major cosmetic procedure, do your research and make sure you choose a surgeon who is very experienced in performing Brazilian Butt Lifts.  

Another benefit of BBL is that it involves Fat Transfer (also known as fat grafting) to move excess fat from one part of the body to another. This type of procedure significantly lowers your risk of infection. Infection can sometimes take place if the body rejects unwanted or foreign substances. However, in a BBL procedure you’re using your own fat cells, which your body is more likely to accept.

Using your own fat will also give you a more natural curve and feel. Patients often wonder if the results are as long lasting compared to using implants. And, the answer is yes. Having a BBL offers powerful and immediate results

The Right Candidate for a BBL

Anyone who is not seeing the firm, round shape they would like to achieve from workouts alone, a BBL is a great solution. This procedure will give you the firm, round shape you desire. Those with stretch marks, cellulite, and loose, hanging skin, also benefit from this type of procedure as it provides an opportunity to tighten and tone.

The Recovery

There are at least a few weeks of recovery for anyone who undergoes a BBL.  Expect some bruising and swelling immediately following the procedure in the buttocks and where the fat cells were harvested. Your doctor will prescribe medication to help alleviate any pain. Some patients might notice fluid draining from the incision, which is perfectly normal. You’ll just need to keep an eye on it and alert your doctor if there is anything unique or different about the fluid change.

A critical component to the success of a BBL is not sitting on your buttocks for a few weeks. Sitting on your bottom immediately after your procedure will reduce the flow of circulation, which may stunt your results.

Following your doctor’s after care instructions is an absolute must.
