Four Things to Know Before Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

Featured Image

Have you always wanted to have a fuller, rounder backside but can’t seem to get the shape you’re after with diet and exercise alone? Or have you simply noticed that your butt has become smaller or deflated-looking over time? In either case, you may be a candidate for Brazilian butt lift surgery. This widely popular procedure has helped countless men and women across the country achieve the shapely, sexy figure they desire without the use of synthetic implants. In fact, your own fat is all that’s needed to sculpt a new, natural-looking, Hollywood-worthy rear end you’ll feel confident about. Use the helpful information below from experienced plastic surgeon and body contouring expert Dr. Heath Charvet of Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa in New Orleans, LA for a closer look at what you need to know before undergoing BBL surgery.

How does BBL surgery work?

The Brazilian butt lift continues to be one of the most in-demand procedures for men and women each year. This body contouring solution involves harvesting excess fat from one area of the body via liposuction and transferring it to the buttocks to increase volume, enhance the butt shape, and create a more attractive physique overall. During your BBL in NOLA, which will be performed using general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure, Dr. Charvet will begin by removing excess fat cells via liposuction. These fat cells are usually taken from the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. The fat is then purified and prepared in syringes. Finally, Dr. Charvet uses a skillful eye and expert precision to inject the fat cells into the buttocks for a natural-looking, smooth, full new look.

What to know before getting BBL surgery

There are a number of things that should be carefully considered before making the decision to undergo BBL surgery. Once you have scheduled your procedure, there are still many important preparations to make to ensure your surgery is a success and your recovery is as smooth as possible. Four of the most important things to know and/or do before a Brazilian butt lift include:

1. Have realistic expectations for your results.

While BBL surgery can make stunning enhancements to your figure, patients should understand that there are certain limitations to the procedure. First and foremost, patients must have enough excess fat available to harvest in order to be considered for the procedure. The amount of volume that can be added to the butt depends heavily on this factor as well. For patients with a low body fat percentage and/or those who desire a dramatic increase in their butt size, gluteal implants may be a more fitting solution.

2. Weight fluctuation can affect your BBL results.

Unlike butt implants, which retain their original size and shape over time, the fat cells transferred during BBL surgery can swell with weight gain and shrink with weight loss, meaning the cosmetic outcome of a BBL is not necessarily permanent. With this in mind, patients should be firmly committed to maintaining a stable weight both before and after BBL surgery.

3. Your final BBL results may take several months to develop.

For the first several weeks or months after BBL surgery, patients will have postoperative swelling at both the liposuction site and on the buttocks itself. This swelling can distort the initial results of the BBL, but the final outcome will begin to take shape as the swelling resolves.

4. A BBL will not actually lift your butt.

Despite its name, the Brazilian butt lift does not actually lift the buttocks, nor does it remove loose or saggy skin. For patients whose primary concern is a sagging butt or loose skin after weight loss, a butt lift with skin removal and tightening may be a more appropriate option.

With an experienced surgeon and a healthy, stable weight, patients can proudly show off a plump, shapely, sexy butt for years to come.
