What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift, often referred to as a BBL, is a body contouring procedure that enhances the shape and size of the buttocks by injecting it with unwanted fat from other areas of the body. The Brazilian butt lift is a unique procedure because it uses a patient’s own body fat to augment the buttocks. This provides several benefits over dermal filler products, such as a lowered risk of infection, a higher success rate, and exceptionally long-lasting and natural-looking results. With a Brazilian butt lift, patients also enjoy the benefit of removing fat from other areas of the body. As a result, patients often achieve significant improvements in the proportion of the figure, particularly more pronounced curves.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?
The total cost of your Brazilian butt lift procedure will vary based upon how much treatment is required. During your consultation we will develop a personalized treatment plan, and you will be informed of your treatment costs and payment options. We are happy to accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards. Financing is also available so that our Brazilian butt lift treatments are affordable to all of our patients.
What is the Brazilian Butt Lift Treatment Like?
The Brazilian butt lift procedure is typically performed with general anesthesia, ensuring complete comfort and safety for patients. The first step in treatment is using a liposuction technique to collect unwanted body fat. The stomach and thighs are most often used for this process. Once fat is collected, it will be carefully treated so that it can be placed back into the body safely. When this process is complete, the fat will be injected into and around the buttocks until the desired shape is achieved.
What is the Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery Like?
While recovering from a Brazilian butt lift, you may experience bruising, swelling and sensitivity in the treatment areas. These symptoms will improve greatly within the first two to three weeks. However, it is important to relax and avoid strenuous activities during this time. We also encourage patients to avoid sitting directly on the treatment area, as this may affect how the final results develop. Patients can expect to return to most normal activities within a week of treatment, and full recovery within about two months.
What Brazilian Butt Lift Results Can I Expect?
It is important to know that your results will fluctuate following your treatment. At first, your results may seem slightly exaggerated. This is because not all of the fat injected into the buttocks will survive the injection process. During the weeks following your treatment, the injected fat will settle into its final position, gradually revealing your long-term results. The final results will last for years to come.
I had the first of three radio frequency treatments called Thermage. I truly love Sweetgrass. They explain everything either beforehand or as it’s being done and how it will feel. I like this face/skin treatment because of how my skin will look after the trio is complete. - Kathryn P.
