A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the shape and look of your buttocks. Unlike other forms of enhancement surgeries, the BBL uses your own body fat to enhance your backside.
The procedure helps trim fat from areas you don’t want it and place it where you want more fullness.
Your specialist at Chicago Fat Doctor determines if you’re a good candidate for a BBL after a consultation. To be considered a good candidate for the procedure, you need to have an adequate source of fat on your body and good skin tone. You should also be in good health and a nonsmoker.
Your specialist at Chicago Fat Doctor may go over the reasons you’re pursuing a BBL. You should be seeking beauty enhancement surgeries for you, not to please someone else. It’s also important to have realistic expectations of what the procedure can do for you.
The BBL is an outpatient procedure conducted under anesthesia. First, your specialist begins your procedure by removing unwanted fat from your abdomen, hips, or thighs through liposuction. The fat is then purified for the transfer.
Once your fat is ready, your specialist injects it into very precise areas of your buttocks to give you your desired appearance.
Recovery time following your BBL varies, but it may take several weeks. Due to the nature of the surgery, your specialist advises that you not sit or lie directly on your buttocks for at least two weeks. Then, you may need to make modifications to how you sit, using a donut for additional support, for as long as eight weeks.
Your specialist may also provide activity limitations during your healing process, and you may need at least a week off of work following your BBL. It may take as long as six months for you to see the full effects of your BBL, but the results should last for years.
