A Brazilian bum lift or BBL is a cosmetic procedure based on transferring fat from other parts of your body to the buttocks to create more fullness and enhance the buttocks. The aim is basically to get peachy and perky booty! A Brazilian butt lift is two surgeries in one! You get liposuction to remove the excess fat, and then it is grafted into the glutes while creating around and contoured hourglass shape.

2. How Does the BBL Procedure Work?

The three stages of BBL

A BBL is a procedure that consists of 3 steps.

Step 1: It starts with liposuction from the areas where there is excess fat. Usually, the fat is collected from the hips, thighs, abdomen, or lower back.

Step 2: The extracted fat is purified from blood and liquid before it gets injected into the buttocks. At the end of this step, only fat remains.

Step 3: It is time to graft the fat into the glutes while reshaping them. It is injected into the buttock muscle and deep fat tissue through small incisions that are made in the body area. With this procedure, the results are natural-looking, as the fat is injected by natural layers, contouring the buttocks and the shape of the body according to the patient’s expectations.

3. Why Have BBL Surgery?

Buttocks are largely determined by genetics. Even though you work out and follow strict diets, sometimes you cannot get the round and lifted shape you would like to have. When you feel your bottom is flat and you have some unwanted fat, a BBL surgery is the best solution to get the body shape and contouring you ever dreamed.

4. Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Safe?

BBL is not a dangerous cosmetic surgery, but it may have some risks like all the procedures that require anesthesia. You need to make sure you are going to the right clinic with an experienced and certified surgeon, and of course, in an accredited clinic to be 100% safe and avoid unnecessary risks.

5. Butt Implants vs BBL Surgery

BBL includes the transfer of body fat to the butt, while Butt Implants refer to artificial devices surgically placed in the buttocks

The butt implants and BBL are surgeries to enhance the buttocks. The main difference is that the first one requires silicone implants to be placed in the bum. The surgeon will choose the best shape of the implant according to the patient’s expectations. BBL surgery uses your own body fat to reshape and contour the buttocks, and the hips. The results are very natural and the risk of rejection is practically nonexistent.

6.  How is the BBL Recovery?

BBL recovery process is as important as the operation!

Recovery is one of the most essential parts of surgery. In the early phase of recovery, there is minimal pain that can be controlled through pain medication. During the first two weeks, you shouldn’t sit or lie directly on your buttocks without using a BBL pillow. It is very important to avoid pressure on this part of the body. The recently grafted fat needs some time to settle down. Usually, most of the patients can go back to work after 1-2 weeks, depending on the kind of job they perform. You will be able to walk after week number 4 and start practising sports after week number 8. Keep in mind that everyone is different, so the recovery after a BBL surgery will individually vary. All the BBL post-op care instructions will be given by the surgeon and need to be followed to get the best results possible.

7. How Long Does BBL Last?

A BBL lasts several years or decades, depending on each person. Also, the fat can last on the buttocks for a lifetime for some people. Post-op care is the most important part of this treatment. If the person sits on the buttocks after the surgery or sleeps on the back, there is the possibility the fat grafts won’t survive. You can read more about it here!
