At Biotech Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center located in Bay Harbor Islands, FL, we know that not everyone has been genetically gifted with full and shapely buttocks. However, there is a natural solution, and it’s called the Brazilian Buttlift. This procedure removes unwanted fat from one area of the body and injects it into a place where you want more fullness, shape, and volume, and in this case, that’s the buttocks.
How Long Does a Brazilian Buttlift Last?
When you undergo a Brazilian buttlift, also known as a BBL, you can expect your results to be permanent. When you transfer fat cells from one area of the body to another, it is done with the intention that those fat cells will adhere and remain in their new location permanently. However, just like any body contouring or enhancement treatment that involves fat cells, some things can negatively impact your results.
How to Maintain Results Long-Term
It’s important that you take the right steps during your recovery and after you have fully healed to ensure that you maintain your results long-term.
Follow the Aftercare Instructions
Avoid Putting Pressure on the Area
Immediately following the procedure, you will need to avoid putting direct pressure on your buttocks. Doing so is extremely important because the new fat cells will not have fully adhered to the buttocks, which makes them vulnerable to any kind of pressure. You will need to sleep on your stomach or side to avoid putting pressure on the treatment area. You can also use an inflatable pillow when sitting to reduce pressure on the newly transplanted fat cells.
Wear Your Compression Garment
After your procedure is complete, you will be provided with a compression garment to wear in both treatment areas. This area will help the donor site and the injection site heel by helping prevent fluid retention and swelling. It will also help your skin mold to your new body contours and promote overall healing.
Exercise As Directed
It’s important that you only exercise as directed during your recovery. We encourage patients to take short walks at the beginning of their recovery to promote lymphatic drainage. A few weeks into your recovery period, you can resume very light exercise but still must avoid heavy weight lifting. We will provide you with more instructions on the best timeframe to resume your normal workout routine.
Attend Your Follow-Up Visits
After your procedure, we will schedule follow-up appointments to ensure that you are healing and are achieving your desired results. It’s important that you attend these visits so that we can make any adjustments to your recovery as needed to help ensure that the newly injected fat cells can permanently adhere to the buttocks and deliver your desired results.
Make Lifestyle Choices That Promote Long-Lasting Results
Not only is it important that you follow the aftercare directions, but you also need to consider your lifestyle choices after your procedure is complete and you are fully healed.
Avoid Significant Weight Loss
It’s important that you don’t lose a significant amount of weight after your procedure because it will affect the appearance and fullness of your buttocks. There’s no guarantee that any weight loss will not shrink the fat cells that have been injected into your buttocks, so staying within five to ten pounds of your weight at the time of your procedure will help ensure long-lasting results.
You can help maintain a healthy weight by performing a moderate amount of cardio and exercising in a way that promotes muscle building. When you work out in such a way that helps build your glute muscles, you can enhance your results by increasing the size of your buttocks by adding muscle beneath your newly implanted fat cells.
How Does a Brazilian Buttlift Work?
This procedure involves two steps. First, unwanted fat cells are taken from one of your problem areas. Most people choose their hips, thighs, or abdomen as the donor site for a BBL. Liposuction will be used to remove unwanted fat cells from the donor site. During the procedure, a small incision will be made in your chosen donor site. Then, a thin tube called a cannula will be inserted into the donor site to gently suction the fat cells from the area.
Once the fat cells are removed through liposuction from one of your problem areas, they will be carefully examined. Only healthy and undamaged fat cells retrieved during liposuction will be used for your BBL. Once the fat cells are prepared in an injectable form, we will strategically administer them into different areas of your buttocks. Doing so will improve the area’s shape, fullness, and volume with the newly injected fat cells.
What Are the Benefits of a Brazilian Buttlift?
It Delivers Natural Results
There are both natural and unnatural ways to achieve fuller buttocks. Unnatural ways include a surgically inserted implant or butt pads that you can insert into clothing to make your buttocks appear larger. The benefit of a BBL is that it uses your body’s fat cells to improve the appearance of your buttocks in a completely natural way. Those fat cells are yours and yours alone, and you won’t have to rely on anything synthetic to improve your appearance.
Not only are the Brazilian Buttlift results natural, but they look natural. Since this procedure does not involve the use of an implant to create fuller buttocks, your buttocks will look larger but in the most natural way.]. It will not look obvious that you underwent any type of procedure; your results will simply look as though you’ve been genetically gifted with full and shapely buttocks.
It Improves Two Body Areas at Once
A Brazilian buttlift involves a fat transfer that takes unwanted, stubborn fat from a problem area and then uses it to enhance the buttocks. As a result, not only will you improve the appearance of your buttocks, but you’ll achieve permanent fat loss and a more contoured appearance in another body area. It’s the best of both worlds and can be completely customized to your needs and goals.
Results Are Long-Lasting
As long as you follow the aftercare directive and make healthy lifestyle choices, you can expect to enjoy your BBL results indefinitely. You will achieve full, shapely, and aesthetically pleasing buttocks that you can enjoy long term.
You Can Enhance Your Results at the Gym
The same exercises that didn’t give you the results you were hoping for before you underwent this procedure will only enhance your results after your procedure. Any size you gain in your glute muscles post-procedure will only make your results look that much better.
Who Is a Candidate for a BBL?
Anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their buttocks by adding natural fullness is a good candidate for a BBL. This procedure can help improve the appearance of the buttocks by adding volume to flat buttocks, increasing the size of small buttocks, lifting sagging buttocks, or correcting asymmetrical buttocks. Individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight that has negatively impacted the appearance of their buttocks also make good candidates for a BBL.
The Importance of Your Consultation
An initial consultation with one of our experts is the best way to determine if a BBL is right for you. An initial consultation is important because it allows us to review your medical history and current state of health to confirm that this is the right option for you.
It also allows us to help determine if you have enough fat in the donor site to use during the procedure to enhance your buttocks. Once we confirm your eligibility, we’ll customize your treatment plan and move forward with the process.
Add Volume the Natural Way
If you want fuller and more aesthetically pleasing buttocks, a Brazilian buttlift will help you achieve what the gym and genetics have been unable to. An initial consultation with one of our experts will help you learn more about this procedure and if it’s right for you.
