If diet and exercise have failed to give you the shape you want, you should consider cosmetic surgery. A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) can help you achieve a shapely rear end. A Brazilian butt lift is a technique that involves the transfer of fat to create a curvier backside.
A BBL from Scott Harris, MD, can enhance the shape, size, and overall appearance of the butt. Unlike a traditional butt lift, the procedure does not involve artificial implants. It is helpful to know whether BBL surgery will leave scarring.
A BBL procedure takes two to three hours to complete and must occur under anesthesia. The procedure begins with the surgeon removing fat from a part of the body that has excess fat. The donor site is predetermined before the surgery.
The surgeon harvests the fat through liposuction, which can help enhance the procedure's results. They then separate the fat and purify it before the transfer. They inject the fat precisely into the buttocks while massaging and sculpting the area. This helps create a curvy and natural-looking contour.
A BBL procedure is fast and effective, and it produces natural-looking results. It can help enhance the shape of the backside while addressing age-related issues such as sagging. The procedure improves the figure, making wearing particular clothing more comfortable.
A BBL has a lower risk of infection than using butt implants. It is safer than using artificial substances to change the butt shape. By reducing excess fat in other areas of the body, the surgery results in a better, more contoured body shape.
Recovery from a BBL procedure varies from one individual to the next. Most patients can return to work within two weeks and recover after four to six weeks. You will notice a difference immediately after the surgery, but swelling may last for several weeks.
The results continue to improve as swelling subsides. The full results are visible in six to 12 months. Proper postoperative care is essential for a successful recovery and to achieve the desired results.
You can do some things to get the best results from BBL surgery. It is vital to avoid sitting or applying direct pressure on the butt during recovery. Use a special pillow when you need to sit.
Ensure that you get plenty of rest, avoid strenuous activities or exercises, stay hydrated, and take medications as directed. Wear a compression garment as advised, and attend follow-up appointments. Engaging in brief walks will help enhance proper circulation.
Unlike a traditional butt lift, a BBL does not involve the use of incisions. The surgeon injects the fat using a syringe, so you should not develop scarring on the butt. However, the procedure is twofold due to the fat extraction site.
Most patients have some scars at the donor sites, but they are tiny and usually fade after some time. A good surgeon will place the incisions in locations where it is easy to camouflage or conceal within the body lines. Avoiding sun exposure and using topical ointments can help reduce scar visibility.
