Summer-ready With a BBL: The Power of a Brazilian Butt Lift for a Perfect Beach Body

Brazilian Butt Lift

For many, summer is about enjoying the warmth in a swimsuit. It is not so enjoyable for others who are self-conscious about their bodies. For some individuals, getting a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) can help. 


Getting a Brazilian Butt Lift 


The main goal of a BBL is to enhance a flat backside, but the procedure can improve the overall body appearance. It involves liposuction and fat transfer to create more fullness in the backside. 

The results are permanent and natural-looking. The procedure is safer and less invasive than using artificial implants. Surgeons use the patient’s fat to enhance the butt shape and size. Patients recover faster from BBL than from other plastic surgery procedures. 


During a BBL Procedure 


A BBL is usually performed under anesthesia. In procedures involving the transfer of a small volume of fat, the surgeon may use local anesthesia. The surgeon uses liposuction to draw fat from other body areas, such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs. 

The fat is purified and injected into the buttocks. The surgeon injects the fat into specific parts of the butt to create a fuller, more rounded look. The surgeon uses stitches to close the fat transfer and liposuction incisions. Applying a compression garment helps reduce the risk of bleeding.  


Benefits of Brazilian Butt Lift 


A BBL is different from other types of butt enhancement surgeries. The benefits of the procedure include:

  • It produces more natural-looking results than butt implants

  • The procedure is effective, creating a more rounded backside

  • There is less risk of tissue rejection because it uses the patient’s fat

  • It is safe, with a reduced risk of infection

  • The procedure can help address other areas, such as the belly and thighs

  • A BBL can reduce age-related issues such as skin sagging

Talk to a surgeon about a BBL if you have figure issues that make it hard to wear certain clothing comfortably. 


Recovering From a BBL 


It can take several weeks to recover from a BBL, enough time to recover completely before summer. The procedure is less invasive, so the healing process is less extensive. Surgeons recommend that patients wear compression garments to facilitate healing during recovery. 

You must avoid sitting or lying on the back during the recovery. The butt may be swollen for several weeks after the procedure. Ensure you follow the post-recovery instructions for successful recovery. You may require medication to reduce discomfort.
