Ultrasonic Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

What's Ultrasonic Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)?

Ultrasonic Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

BBL is a cosmetic surgery performed to increase the size and/or improve the shape of the buttocks. The procedure consists of extracting fat from other areas of the body, such as the back or thighs, and grafting it onto the buttocks.

In other words, it is a procedure to improve the contour of the buttocks by using own fat. Unlike other methods, fat transfer offers a more natural and long-lasting result. If you are considering this procedure, here we tell you everything you need to know about it.

It can be done under local or general anesthesia, and recovery time depending on the type of anesthesia used.

How is BBL performed?

The surgery usually takes between 2 and 4 hours, and the patient can go home the same day. If general anesthesia is required, the patient will need medical care for a few days after the surgery.

What are the considerations of a BBL?

As with any surgery, there is a risk of infection, bleeding, allergic reactions to anesthesia, and other medical problems.

The objective is to improve the aesthetic appearance of the buttocks, providing a greater volume and a more natural contour. However, before that there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • You will need recovery time: As with any other type of surgery, fat transfer to the buttocks requires time to be able to perform normal activities again. You may need to take a few weeks off from work and normal activities to allow your body to heal.
  • There may be some risk of complications: Although surgery is generally safe, as with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of complications. These can include infection, reaction to anesthesia, internal bleeding and even in cases where it is not done properly, even necrosis of the injected fat.
  • Not all patients are candidates: If you have a pre-existing medical condition, such as diabetes or heart disease, you may not be able to undergo this procedure. It is also important to have a healthy body weight, as buttock fat transfer surgery is not recommended for those who are overweight, although this should be assessed by a specialist.
  • The results may not be permanent: Although the results of the surgery are usually very satisfactory, they are not always permanent. The grafted fat can gradually be reabsorbed into the body, which can reduce the volume and contour of the buttocks over time.

What are the benefits of a BBL?

The benefits of this cosmetic surgery are:

  1. Buttock augmentation and shape: Buttock fat transfer allows the patient to increase the size and improve the shape of their buttocks.
  2. Improves body symmetry: As with other cosmetic surgery procedures, buttock fat transfer can help improve body symmetry.
  3. Fat reduction in other areas of the body: When the fat is removed to be used in the procedure, there is a reduction of fat in the areas of the body where the liposuction was performed.
