Brazilian Butt Lift

A fuller rounded derriere is a highly desirable look and therefore surgery to achieve this look is becoming increasing popular. Brazilian butt lift (BBL) operation increases the size of the butt and enhances the appearance of the buttocks by inserting butt implants, fat injection or in some cases combining both. A skilled cosmetic surgeon can improve the proportions of the entire lower body with Brazilian butt lift surgery, helping a patient lose fat in common “problem areas” and enhance the buttocks, with results lasting many years. If you feel that your buttocks are flat or don’t match the contours of the rest of your body, or if your skin in that area is excessively loose and flabby and exercise and dieting have been unable to correct the problem, you are likely a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift.

The procedure is usually performed under anesthesia, but in procedures where a smaller volume of fat is transferred, it may be done with only local anesthesia. You may ask for an anti-nausea medication beforehand, especially if anesthesia makes you sick.It is essential to provide details to your doctor about your medical history, a list of all medication you currently take and information regarding your tobacco and alcohol use before the operation.

A BBL starts with liposuction, where a surgeon will suck fat out of areas in the body then process and re-inject it into the buttocks and hips. The areas of planned and the outline of planned fat grafting are marked before surgery. Once the patient is positioned on the operating room table face-down and under anesthesia, the liposuction is performed in the desired areas and the fat is collected in a specialized system that separates live fat cells from liposuction fluid. That fat is then injected in the marked areas of the butt. Surgeons can sometimes graft fat into the thighs or hips, depending on what body shape the patient wants. The procedure requires a few very small incisions that sutured closed at the end.
