How Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Done?

Even if you spend hours in the gym performing squats and other exercises, you may struggle to achieve shapely, attractive buttocks on your own. Fortunately, there’s no need to give up your social life and spend every evening in the gym. You can contour your buttocks by receiving a Brazilian butt lift from the experts at Radiant Divine Medical Spa in Avon, Ohio.

How Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Done?

A Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, is a cosmetic procedure that can be used to dramatically enhance the shape and size of your buttocks. This procedure is called a Brazilian lift because this technique was originally used in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This aesthetic procedure has two main components. First, we will remove fat from one location in your body. Next, we will put these fat cells into your buttocks.

The First Step

We will begin by using a technique called liposuction to remove unwanted fat cells from a specific area of your body. During liposuction, we will make a small incision into the area where these fat cells are located. Next, we will use a special device to suction these cells out of your body. In order to achieve the best results during your BBL, we will process and purify these cells. This process will help more of your cells survive after they are implanted into your buttocks.

The area where you receive liposuction will depend on the composition of your body and your unique preferences. For example, if you would like to remove some of the extra fat on your stomach, we can perform liposuction on this area. You could also choose to remove fat from your back, flanks, or thighs.

The Second Step

Once we have processed your fat, we will inject this material into your buttocks. We will use our knowledge of human anatomy and professional training to shape your buttocks and enhance the size of this part of your body.

Am I Eligible to Receive a BBL?

You will need to meet several requirements in order to qualify for a BBL. In particular, you will need to have enough extra fat on your stomach, thighs, or other parts of your body to harvest during the first step of your procedure. If you are a very thin person without any unwanted pockets of fat on your body, we will not have enough fat cells to use during the second part of your BBL.

We will also need to discuss your medical background before you get your BBL. If you have a major health condition that affects your ability to heal, you might not be able to use this technique to change your figure. Further, if you smoke cigarettes, will ask you to quit for a month before your procedure. You’ll also need to avoid smoking during your recovery period. Avoiding cigarettes will help your buttocks heal in a quick, efficient fashion.

How Should I Prepare for My BBL?

If we instruct you to take medication during your recovery period, you should go to your local pharmacy and fill your prescription before you get your procedure. In addition, it’s a good idea to make sure that you have plenty of food and snacks to eat for the next several weeks. You won’t want to worry about getting your medication or going shopping while you are beginning your healing process.

In addition to obtaining your medication and necessary food supplies, you should ask a close friend or family member to drive you home after your BBL is complete. Since you’ll be very tired and drowsy once we finish improving your buttocks, you cannot drive yourself home. Your friend or family member can also help you clean your home, make meals, and do other tasks during the initial stages of your BBL recovery.

Will I Need to Schedule Time Off From My Job or Other Activities After I Get My BBL?

Your recovery period will depend on the amount of fat that we put into your buttocks, your health, and other variables. In general, you will need to schedule a break from your work and make other temporary adjustments to your schedule.

Wearing a Special Garment

We will provide you with a compression garment when you receive this procedure. This special garment will help your skin and other tissues heal from your BBL. Although we will provide you with instructions that are tailored to your unique situation, you will probably need to wear your compression garment for up to six weeks.

Protecting Your Buttocks

Your post-procedure behavior can damage the fat cells that we transferred into your buttocks. During the next couple of weeks, your body will grow blood vessels that will provide nutrients to these cells. Your transferred fat cells need these nutrients to survive.

Putting an excessive amount of pressure onto these cells can disrupt this process and cause some of your transferred fat cells to die off. To protect these cells, you will need to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for a while.

Taking Time Off

You will want to schedule some time off from your job at the beginning of your recovery period. During this time, you’ll need to rest and relax while your buttocks begin to adjust to your new fat cells. It’s common to take about two weeks off from your job and other responsibilities.

Avoiding Exercise

In addition to scheduling time off from your job, you will need to adjust your exercise routine while your tissues are healing. During the next four weeks, you should not take a challenging exercise class, go running, or do other rigorous activities.

When Will I See the Final Result of My BBL?

Some of the fat cells that we inject into your buttocks will not survive in their new location. Although the behavior of your transferred fat cells will vary, it’s common for up to 40% of your fat cells to die during the months after you receive your procedure.

When you initially receive this procedure, your buttocks will look very large. As some of your transferred fat cells die off and your tissues recover, your buttocks will become slightly smaller. It’s common for this process to take about four months to complete. At this point, you will be able to see the final impact of your BBL.

Will My BBL Permanently Change My Figure?

This procedure can produce permanent improvements in the shape and size of your buttocks. After about four months, the fat cells that are still in your buttocks are likely to stay in this part of your body.

However, you will need to keep your weight stable in order to preserve your improvements. If you lose a large amount of weight, your buttocks could become smaller. Similarly, if you gain a large amount of weight, your proportions will change. To avoid these issues, you should adopt healthy eating habits and hike, jog, or do other types of physical activities.

How Much Fat Will Be Transferred Into My Buttocks?

Since some of the transferred fat cells will not survive, you might be tempted to ask us to transfer a larger amount of fat during your procedure. However, transferring too much fat into your buttocks may prevent you from achieving the desired changes in your appearance. If we transfer too much fat, a larger percentage of these cells will fail to survive the transfer process.

Transferring Your Fat Cells

Instead of transferring a very large volume of fat, we will protect your safety and achieve better results by choosing an appropriate amount of fat cells to inject into your buttocks. The amount of fat that we transfer into your buttocks will depend on the condition of your body, your aesthetic goals, and other factors. We can provide you with more information about the fat transfer process when you have your initial consultation with us.

Receiving a Second Procedure

If you are interested in achieving very large, rounded buttocks, you might benefit from getting a second Brazilian butt lift. During a second procedure, we can continue to improve your figure by transferring additional fat into your buttocks.

Can I Receive Other Aesthetic Procedures During My BBL?

If you have sagging breasts, loose skin on your stomach, or other aesthetic issues, you should consider correcting these imperfections when you receive your BBL.

Getting multiple procedures at the same time can be a good way to minimize the amount of money that you spend on fees for anesthesia and other costs that are associated with your improvements. You will also decrease the amount of time that you spend away from your job and other duties. Instead of going through two separate recovery periods, you will have one period of downtime.

Improving Your Stomach

A tummy tuck is frequently combined with a BBL. If you don’t like the way that your stomach looks after going through pregnancy, you might decide to receive a tummy tuck in connection with your butt lift. This procedure, which is also called an abdominoplasty, can improve your stomach muscles and remove the excess fat and skin from this area of your body.

There are a couple of different methods that we can use to perform your tummy tuck. During a traditional tuck, we will eliminate unneeded fat and loose skin that is located around your belly button. We can also use specialized techniques to strengthen your abdominal muscles and undo the damage that you developed during pregnancy.

Improving Your Breasts

Receiving a breast augmentation or breast lift in connection with your BBL can be a great way to completely transform your figure. During a breast lift, we will remove unneeded skin and lift your breasts into a higher position on your chest. This procedure is often used to address age-related sagging issues or changes that you experienced after pregnancy.

During a breast augmentation, we will increase the size of your breasts by putting implants into your body. We can also use implants to make your breasts look more symmetrical. A breast augmentation is an ideal way to fix changes that developed after you lost weight or finished breastfeeding.

Enhance Your Buttocks

Improving the shape of your buttocks will transform your silhouette and give you a beautiful, attractive figure. Your clothing will fit better and you will feel more confident about showing off your body.
