A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) provides a dramatic improvement in contour by the use of fat transfer to the buttock.
This technique is useful if there is only a small amount of skin laxity, and there are sufficient fatty bulges elsewhere on the body (such as on the tummy, flanks, back, arms or thighs) to take the fat from. Fat is removed from the other areas of the body using liposuction, and the fat is then injected back into the buttocks, giving a firmer, higher and rounder buttock. This has the added advantage of giving an improved contour where the fat is removed.
If there is a large amount of skin laxity then a full buttock lift with scars is required to remove excess skin, with the scars hidden under normal underpants and swimming costumes.
The surgery involves a general anaesthetic, with most people going home the same day. *Most people return to work within a few days following the surgery, and a pressure compression garment must be worn after the surgery which minimises the bruising and swelling and helps produce an even contour. Heavy activities and sport should be avoided for a few weeks.
*Note results may vary from person to person
