What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)?
Buttock augmentation, also known as gluteal augmentation, is a surgical procedure that improves the buttocks’ contour, size, and form. This is accomplished using buttock implants, fat grafting, or a combination of these.
Buttock enlargement via fat grafting transfers fat from one place of the body to the tissues of the buttocks. This procedure is also known as a Brazilian Butt Lift. This differs from buttock implants, which are silicone-filled implants surgically implanted deep inside the buttock tissues.
Many women are looking for a curvy, hourglass shape. A butt lift helps accomplish this. Another reason to consider a butt lift is to enhance the roundness or fullness of the buttocks, leading to a more youthful and shapely appearance.
What’s The Difference Between a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) and Implants?
There are two alternatives for patients desiring buttock augmentation: silicone implants or fat grafting. Fat grafting entails extracting fat from your body, preparing it, and putting it into your buttocks. This technique, also known as a Brazilian butt lift, has become one of the world’s most popular butt augmentation procedures today.
Traditionally, silicone implants have been used to enlarge the buttocks. The implants resulted in an incision scar. If you want to avoid having a scar on your buttocks, you can have fat injected instead.
Recovery from Brazilian Butt Lift
Post-surgery bandages will be applied to reduce swelling and bruising. There will be some discomfort and soreness, but it should be minimal. You will be provided instructions on how to sit during recovery to ensure the injected tissue isn’t disrupted. Most patients may return to work and normal activities within one to two weeks and are often cleared for physical activity by week five. It’s recommended that you sleep on your stomach to prevent surgical complications.
FAQ about Brazilian Butt Lift
The most accurate results of the surgery will show around the six-month mark. Immediately post-op, there will be swelling, and the transferred fat won’t have settled fully. Additionally, recovery will eliminate some of the fat naturally.
