The Brazilian Butt Lift is the Robin Hood of cosmetic treatments. Stealing from the fat rich and depositing to the fat poor, BBLs serve as comprehensive two-in-one treatments, removing fat from where you don’t want it and depositing it back where you do. It’s a win-win.
BBLs are a fantastic alternative to buttock augmentations using implants, as not only do they look fantastically natural; they make use of 100% natural resources. That means that you can enjoy your brand new, fabulously curvaceous rear, whilst running absolutely zero risk of rejection or infection
The BBL treatment creates a beautiful shapely profile that not only leaves your buttocks looking fuller and firmer, but more lifted with visibly improved symmetry and a significant reduction in cellulite. BBLs will even help to correct tissue deformities such as dimpling and indentation.
A Brazilian butt lift consists of fat grafting that is notable for its natural-looking results. The procedure involves the following steps:
- The procedure is usually performed under anesthesia, but in procedures where a smaller volume of fat is transferred, it may be done with only local anesthesia (numbing medication). You may ask for an anti-nausea medication beforehand, especially if anesthesia makes you sick.
- Your surgeon then uses liposuction to remove fat from other areas of your body, such as your hips, stomach, and thighs. Liposuction itself involves making incisions in the skin, and then using a tube to remove fat from the body.
- The fat stores that have just been removed from your body are purified and readied for injection into your buttocks.
- Your surgeon finishes by injecting the processed fat into specific areas of the buttocks to create a more rounded, full look. They make three to five incisions around the buttocks for fat transfers.
- Both liposuction and fat transfer incisions are closed up with stitches. Your surgeon then applies a compression garment against the affected areas of skin to minimize your risk of bleeding.
- Unlike other forms of buttock surgery, such as placement of silicone buttock implants, a Brazilian butt lift is touted for providing more natural-looking results while also creating more roundness in your backside.
- It can also help address certain issues, such as the sagging and shapelessness that sometimes occur with age.
- You might also consider the procedure if you’re bothered by figure imbalances that make it difficult to wear clothing comfortably.
- Another benefit to Brazilian butt lifts is that there is a lower risk of infection compared to silicone buttock implants. It does have a better safety profile than other substances, such as silicone caulking and sealants, that are sometimes illegally injected into buttocks by people not qualified to perform the procedure.
Fat Transfers can be compared to the process of grafting – a more advanced, subdermal graft if you will. Transferring fat in this manner causes the body to regenerate new tissue, stimulating the cells as well as replacing any lost volume.
Fat Transfers make use of the body’s natural resources to help the body repair itself instead of intervening with any artificial materials that the body might try to reject. In fact forget rejection altogether; the body will accept transferred fat with ease.
If you’re toying with the idea of a surgical facelift, breast augmentation, buttock implants or indeed any implant-dependant surgery; a Fat Transfer procedure could do just the trick, offering even better results with significantly less downtime.
A surgical fat transfer can be carried out under either general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic.
It involves 3 main stages:
- removing the fat : small cuts are made in the skin and a thin tube is used to suck out small amounts of fat (similar to liposuction); the cuts are then closed with stitches
- preparing the fat : special equipment is used to separate the fat collected from any blood and other fluids
- injecting the fat : small amounts of fat are injected into the area being treated; stitches are not usually needed
The procedure usually lasts a couple of hours. You may be able to go home soon after the procedure is finished, or you may need to stay in hospital overnight.
If a large area is being treated, your treatment may need to be carried out over 2 or more sessions.
You should not feel much pain during the procedure, but you may have some for a few days or weeks afterwards. You’ll be given painkillers if you need them.
