Do you have a flat butt that lacks any curve or shape? With a BBL, you can gain a larger, fuller, and shapelier butt without implants. Dr. Charvet has extensive experience creating impressive BBL results in New Orleans.
All about the BBL
A BBL procedure involves the use of fat transfer and grafting to achieve a more curvaceous butt that has added volume and pleasing lift. Fat is removed via liposuction and then placed in the buttocks to develop a pleasing and long-lasting shape.
General anesthesia is administered when carrying out a Brazilian butt lift. The outpatient procedure usually takes from 2 – 3 hours to complete. The procedure’s timeframe does vary depending on the amount of liposuction performed and fat reintroduction.
The areas of the body targeted for liposuction include the thighs, stomach, and hips. After extraction, the fat is run through a purified closed system before reintroduction into the body. The fat is not exposed to the air to prevent contamination. The fat is inserted into the butt layers slowly, and then the region is massaged to create an even appearance. The entire process is repeated as many times as necessary to help gain the results sought by the patient.
After undergoing a Brazilian butt lift, you can return home for a full recovery. You should avoid placing weight on your butt for at least two weeks after the surgery. Also, you’ll need to care for and pay attention to the area where the fat was liposuctioned.
Swelling in the butt will diminish after about 4 – 6 weeks, and you’ll start to notice your results. Your butt will appear shapelier, and the area where you underwent liposuction will be smoother and flatter.
How long do the results of a BBL last?
Your body can reabsorb some of the fat placed in your butt; however, most of it will remain in place. To ensure a long-lasting outcome, maintain a steady weight by avoiding gaining or losing. For the best results possible, you should be near your ideal target weight prior to undergoing a BBL.
Care after a BBL
Dr. Charvet and the team at Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions. You should avoid sitting on or putting pressure on your buttocks for at least 14 days after the BBL. Use a donut-shaped pillow or a nursing cushion to help alleviate the pressure on your rear end. Only walk a short distance and perform light stretching to keep the blood circulating in your backside and reduce swelling. A post-surgical massage is also beneficial in the healing process and will help you make the most of your BBL results.
