What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Shapely, rounded buttocks are a key characteristic of an attractive, youthful figure. Unfortunately, as a result of aging, gravity, pregnancy, genetics, and/or large weight loss, the buttocks often develop a sagging, flattened appearance that lacks roundness and definition. Buttocks lift surgery gives the buttocks a firmer, lifted appearance through techniques to remove excess skin and tighten sagging tissues.
Exercise is an excellent method to increasing the muscle definition, tone, and shape of the buttocks. However, for some people, exercise alone cannot achieve an ideal buttock shape and size. A Brazilian butt lift in Virginia Beach at Galardi | Bowen | Rosenblum Plastic Surgery is a surgical option for increasing your butt’s size and enhancing contours.
The Brazilian Butt Lift surgery uses a fat transfer to increase butt size while slimming other body areas where liposuction removes fat. Since fat transfer is essential for the surgery, a candidate must have enough excess fat on the body to successfully enhance the butt. If diet and exercise are not providing enough enhancement to your buttocks, consider a Brazilian butt lift for a natural-looking butt augmentation. Call our team of talented cosmetic surgeons today to learn how we can help you get the body you’ve always dreamed of.
What Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Do?
A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) procedure at our Virginia Beach practice aims to enhance the shape and contours of the butt with a fat transfer. For the transfer, liposuction techniques remove excess fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and lower back, resulting in a slimming effect. Once cleaned, the fat is strategically injected into the butt to make a rounder, fuller appearance.
Compared to buttocks enhancement with implants, a Brazilian butt lift provides more natural-looking results from using fat transfer. The procedure could correct buttocks sagging and shapelessness which result from aging, pregnancy, or genetics. Beyond enhancing the buttock’s contours, the surgery could also balance body figure proportions and improve clothing fit.
Ideal Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift
To undergo a Brazilian butt lift, a patient must have enough excess fat on areas used for liposuction to have a successful fat transfer. After the procedure, the body reabsorbs and breaks down some of the injected fat as it accepts the fat transfer. Because of reabsorption, a surgeon may inject extra fat during the procedure to compensate, making it necessary that a patient has excess fat deposits for successful results.
At Galardi | Bowen | Rosenblum Plastic Surgery you will have a one-on-one consultation with one of our talented and experienced surgeons. Through a Brazilian butt lift, our surgeons aim to enhance the buttock’s size and shape, but it does not address excess skin. If a patient has sagging skin on the lower buttocks, they are a better candidate for thigh or buttock lift surgery instead.
Another factor to consider is that, for proper healing, a patient must avoid sitting for several weeks after surgery. If a candidate is unable to do this for any reason, such as work, a Brazilian butt lift may not be ideal for buttocks enhancement.
Possible Risks and Side Effects of BBL
The Brazilian butt lift operation poses fewer risks of infections than an enhancement with buttocks implants. As with any surgical procedure, typical risks are infection, scarring, bruising, and pain. Hazards specific to a Brazilian butt lift include:
- Loss of skin in treatment areas resulting from severe infections
- Lumps beneath the skin in areas of injection or liposuction
- Failure of the body to accept the fat transfer
A rare but severe risk of a Brazilian butt lift is an improper injection of fat into the buttock’s veins. If this occurs, the fat could travel within the body to the lungs and cause respiratory issues and, in severe cases, death. However, when performed by a trained and qualified surgeon, the chance of this occurring significantly reduces.
