When it comes to improving the size, shape, and contours of the buttocks, many people in the United States are choosing the Brazilian butt lift (BBL). The buttock enhancement procedure uses unwanted fat from other parts of your body to improve the shape and contours of your backside. At Regenerative Medical Spa, the team has helped many people achieve their desired shape with the BBL. To schedule a consultation, contact the office in Long Beach, California, by phone or book online today.
What is the Brazilian butt lift (BBL)?
The BBL is a buttock augmentation procedure that involves fat transfer techniques to enhance the shape, size, and contours of your buttocks without the need for silicone implants.
During the cosmetic procedure, fat is liposuctioned from other areas of your body, such as your abdomen, hips, or thighs, and injected into specific areas of your buttocks to get the desired results.
At Regenerative Medical Spa, the team uses SmartLipo™, a laser-assisted liposuction device, to remove the fat from your body. SmartLipo is an in-office liposuction procedure that uses laser technology to melt the fat under your skin and gently suction it away.
Am I a good candidate for the BBL?
The team at Regenerative Medical Spa determines if you’re a good candidate for the BBL during your consultation. You may be considered a good candidate if you’re in good overall health and you want to:
- Enhance your natural curves
- Look better in clothing
- Improve body proportions
- Fill out a flat backside
The size and shape of your buttocks is largely dependent on your genetics. Diet and exercise improve muscle strength and health, but may not change muscle or fat distribution to improve your flat buttocks.
If you’re unhappy with the size or shape of your backside, contact Regenerative Medical Spa to see if the BBL is right for you.
What happens during a BBL procedure?
The team at Regenerative Medical Spa reviews the details of your BBL procedure during your consultation so you know what to expect.
During your cosmetic surgery, your provider first liposuctions fat from specific areas of your body to improve your overall body shape and contours.
Your provider then purifies the extracted fat and injects it into specific areas of your buttocks to get the desired results.
What can I expect during recovery from a BBL?
The team provides specific instructions about the recovery process so you know what to expect. To prevent shifts in the fat transfer, the team advises that you not sit or lie directly on your buttocks for at least two weeks following your procedure. Then, the team requests you to sit on a donut for up to eight weeks following your BBL.
You may be able to resume light activities a week after your BBL and return to work within 10-14 days. Complete recovery from your BBL takes about six months. However, as long as you maintain your weight, your buttock augmentation should last years.
