Are you disappointed with the size or shape of your butt? If so, you are not alone. Many people covet youthful, perky, and full buttocks that are often nearly impossible to achieve with diet and exercise alone. While a lucky few have a naturally shapely butt genetically, most people are not so fortunate. If you’re one of the many who are disappointed every swimsuit season, struggle with finding clothes that fit properly, or lack confidence in your shape, BBL can help you achieve your dream figure.
What is a BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift)?
A BBL is a surgical procedure that can help enhance the shape and size of a person’s buttocks. BBL is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure that utilizes liposuction to remove fat from other areas of the body before injecting it into the buttocks area to create an improved contour and more defined silhouette.
The BBL procedure begins with liposuction, which removes excess fat from targeted areas like the thighs, abdomen, and back. The amount of fat removed depends on your aesthetic goals and how much excess fat you have in those areas. After the liposuction, this harvested fat is then purified and injected strategically into the glutes to create a more balanced look.
Although it requires general anesthesia in most cases, Dr. Steinbrech can usually perform a BBL as an outpatient procedure. However, recovery time can vary depending on each patient’s case. Generally speaking, patients should be able to return home shortly after their procedure but will need assistance for at least 24 hours following surgery due to the effects of anesthesia. Patients may experience swelling and discomfort during recovery time, but these symptoms should diminish over time with proper care by a healthcare professional. Dr. Steinbrech himself will give post-operative instructions that patients can follow.
Overall, Brazilian butt lift surgery is a highly effective cosmetic procedure that can help improve body contours. When done correctly by experienced professionals such as Dr. Steinbrech himself, a BBL can restore a patient’s confidence by providing them with a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing figure.
Who Can Get a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Ideal candidates for this procedure are healthy adult men and women who would like to enhance the size and shape of their buttocks. The fat transfer procedure is relatively safe, and as long as you are in general good health and do not smoke, you should be a good candidate for BBL surgery. If you smoke, you will need to discuss smoking cessation at your consultation prior to undergoing the procedure, as it delays healing.
Patients desiring a BBL surgery need to have sufficient unwanted fat so the doctor can remove it for use in the procedure. Slim or muscular patients without excess body fat may not be eligible or may need to undergo a butt implant surgery instead. Patients will ideally be at a stable weight since weight fluctuations after surgery can alter the results.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery and Downtime
Most BBL patients should expect to take about 2-3 weeks off work. After that period, you can return to work depending on the procedure. You will wear a compression garment 24/7 until the doctor instructs you otherwise. You likely notice some swelling, bruising, temporary loss of sensation, and discomfort. The doctor will give you pain medication to reduce discomfort during the initial recovery period. Patients should avoid extensive sitting for several weeks after the procedure and may need to use a special cushion for a month or two after surgery to help promote optimal results. Patients should also sleep on their side. In addition, patients will need to avoid strenuous activity for at least 4 weeks to allow for healing. Swelling will subside gradually over a period of a few months. Therefore, patients need to be patient with the BBL recovery process as their body acclimates to their new, more shapely figure.
Your Investment in a Balanced Figure: What Does BBL Cost?
One of the most frequently asked questions is the cost of this transformative plastic surgery procedure. The average cost of a BBL surgery is usually between $4,000 and $10,000, but the price varies widely depending on several factors. These include the surgeon’s expertise, geographic location, and complexity of the treatment plan. Additional costs may also arise from anesthesia, medical tests, or post-operative care. A personal consultation with Dr. Steinbrech is the best way to get an accurate price range tailored to your unique needs. During this consultation, you can address any additional questions about the costs or your treatment plan.
Financial considerations should be balanced against the lifelong benefits of a BBL, such as a more balanced figure and improved self-confidence. Living a healthy lifestyle post-surgery will ensure that the fat tissues remain in their optimal state, prolonging the results of your investment.
*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
Anticipating Side Effects and Risks
While this treatment is generally considered to be a safe procedure, especially when performed by experienced professionals like Dr. Steinbrech, it’s essential to have realistic expectations about potential side effects and the risk of complications. After the fat removal and injection process, patients might experience swelling, bruising, or discomfort around the operated areas.
Other risks associated with this surgery include blood clots, infection, fluid accumulation under the skin, and scarring, as well as the risk of a fat embolism if too much fat is injected into one area at once. Individuals considering this surgery must be at a healthy weight before undergoing any cosmetic procedures like BBL to reduce health risks associated with surgery and ensure better results.
During your personal consultation, Dr. Steinbrech will address any concerns you have about side effects or complications. He will also outline a treatment plan that aligns with a healthy lifestyle and realistic expectations. The importance of this step cannot be overstated, as it’s a cornerstone for reducing the risk of complications post-surgery.
