Some women dream of having an hourglass figure with a slim stomach and round, full buttocks. Following a regular diet and exercise program involving lots of squats and lunges can enhance the size of the butt and reduce fat, but genetics also plays a role. In some cases, women just can’t get the results they want without plastic surgery.
The Brazilian butt lift was designed with these women in mind. Initially created in Rio de Janeiro, Brazilian butt lifts create a more sculpted appearance of the buttocks. Results look natural and can be enhanced by continuing an exercise routine devoted to strengthening the gluteal region.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A BBL Brazilian butt lift involves transferring fat from areas of your body directly to your buttocks. The procedure begins with liposuction, which removes unwanted fat from areas such as your abdominal region, thighs, and arms.
The fat is then injected into your butt cheeks and hips, resulting in enhanced buttocks that have a fuller, rounder appearance.
Brazilian butt lifts are popular for several reasons. First, you’re removing fat from areas of the body that haven’t responded to diet and exercise, which results in a contouring effect.
Second, the fat injected into the buttocks enhances their shape, leaving you with an hourglass figure that can be difficult to obtain, especially in individuals who aren’t naturally curvy or muscular.
What Are the Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift?
There are several benefits to the BBL procedure, including:
The results from a BBL Brazilian butt lift are intended to be permanent. Those who follow a regular diet and exercise program keep their results. However, your results may change if you lose or gain a significant amount of weight.
Two Procedures in One
People often have unwanted pockets of fat they just can’t seem to get rid of. Fat pockets can appear in the abdominal area, along the back, thighs, and arms. Patients who undergo a Brazilian butt lift can target these undesirable fatty regions and redistribute the fat to their buttocks.
Essentially, a Brazilian butt lift combines liposuction and fat transfer to create a more shapely appearance to the body.
Brazilian butt lifts look natural. Women who undergo the procedure notice a rounder appearance to their buttocks that’s shapely but not artificial. Because you’re using your body’s fat to enhance the shape of your buttocks, the results blend right into your natural figure. No fillers are involved in a BBL.
Contour Other Areas of the Body
Tired of love handles, inner thigh fat, or sagging upper arms? The liposuction portion of the Brazilian butt lift procedure can target any fat pockets that you want to treat. In addition to shaping your buttocks, you can contour and eliminate fat in places where you don’t want it.
You can choose the areas where liposuction is applied, which makes a Brazilian butt lift a highly customizable treatment.
What Should I Expect from a BBL Brazilian Butt Lift?
Before undergoing a Brazilian butt lift procedure, you’ll meet with a trained plastic surgeon at Chicago Aesthetic Surgery Institute (CASI). Our surgeons are well-trained in performing BBL Brazilian butt lifts. You can feel confident in your results when choosing our center.
During your consultation, we’ll ask you for your entire medical history and any medications you are currently taking. We’ll examine the areas to be treated, including the buttocks and the sites you would like to target for liposuction. If you are a good candidate for the procedure, we’ll schedule you for the surgery at a convenient time.
On the day of your procedure, you’ll be given anesthesia. The anesthesia will make you sleepy and allow us to perform the surgery unheeded. You’ll be transferred to an operating room, and your skin will be cleansed in the areas where liposuction will be performed.
As the fat is removed from your body, it will be held in a cylinder. Once liposuction is completed, injections will transfer the fat to the buttocks. We predetermine the injection sites, which are designed to fill out your buttocks, fill in any hip dips, and give ample projection to your rear end.
Once the surgery is completed, you’ll have some downtime in our office before returning home to complete your recovery. We’ll give you a set of instructions to follow after your procedure to maximize your results. Each person’s recovery is different, so we’ll make sure that we customize your instructions to meet your needs.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Results from a Brazilian butt lift procedure take up to four months to be fully evident. Not all fat transferred to your buttocks will survive. Your initial results may appear fuller than what your final results will be. As you recover from the surgery, its results will become more apparent.
After a Brazilian butt lift procedure, it’s essential to follow a regular diet and exercise routine to maintain your results. Losing too much weight can reduce the fullness of your buttocks, while gaining too much weight can lead to fat pockets in other areas, diminishing the appearance of your new hourglass figure.
