The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a semi-permanent procedure. Once the transferred fat has stabilized, your derriere should retain its enhanced size and shape for decades.
BBL is accomplished in stages, the first of which is using liposuction to remove fat from an area of your body with a little extra to give, such as the abdomen or thighs. This supplies the fat needed for your BBL while sculpting and toning adjacent or nearby areas for ideally complementary contours. After your fat has been harvested, it will undergo a purification process that will allow it to be more easily injected into the buttocks.
The body will retain between 60% and 80% of the fat following reinjection, reabsorbing and eliminating the remaining through natural channels. This process may take three to four months, but once complete, the results you see are the results you can expect to keep for the next 20+ years.
Will I Have to Have More than One Brazilian Butt Lift?
You will not need to have more than one BBL to achieve optimal results. Dr. George Chatson is precise in the amount of fat that is injected to help ensure the exact right amount of sculpting is ultimately achieved.
How can I Extend My Brazilian Butt Lift Results?
There are many things that can impact how long a BBL lasts. Your choice of plastic surgeon is a top one. Make sure you are working with a board-certified plastic surgeon whenever undergoing an aesthetic procedure. There are several risks associated with discount and tourism plastic surgery. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon helps protect your safety and results.
In addition to your choice of surgeon, steps you take before and after your BBL will play a role in how long your butt lift lasts. During recovery, make sure to wear your compression garments at all times, avoid sitting or sleeping on your back or the graft side of the body, and keep your incisions clean and dry at all times. Only resume activities once given the okay, and closely follow all postoperative care instructions.
After recovery, you can help maintain your BBL results by:
- Maintaining a stable weight
- Adopting a booty-centered exercise routine
- Feeding the fat
Feed your BBL with healthy fats. Foods like avocados, grass-fed whole dairy products, nuts, and nut butters, and healthy oils like coconut and olive oil can help you maintain all of your healthy and natural curves.
