What is the difference between a Brazilian butt lift and butt augmentation?
With a Brazilian butt lift, fat is extracted via liposuction from a donor area such as the hips, thighs or belly and then is purified and injected into the rear end, creating a more rounded and feminine aesthetic. BBL has the added benefit of slimming and sculpting the donor areas while accomplishing its primary function of enhancing the back side. Butt augmentation with solid silicone implants can be performed in those individuals who lack sufficient donor fat for BBL. An implant procedure will carry with it greater risks, longer downtimes and of course scarring.
How can I tell if I am a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?
It’s important that you be at or close to your ideal body weight before the procedure, as undergoing significant weight loss or weight gain can alter the appearance of your results. Since BBL is performed using your own body fat, the procedure will not be effective unless you have ample donor fat to draw from in the stomach, hips, thighs or lower back. The doctor may advise that you gain some weight before undergoing BBL if you are too slim. Clients pursuing a Brazilian butt lift in NYC or Staten Island at Allure Plastic Surgery, will need to be at least 18 years old before their treatment.
How long is the recovery period for a Brazilian butt lift?
BBL is a safe, non-surgical procedure, so it does not have the longer downtimes associated with butt augmentation via implants. You will be able to return to work within 3-5 days. However, it may still take 4-6 weeks for you to return to aerobic exercises and weightlifting. Gentle, mild walks are encouraged to help improve circulation and blood flow. You will be fitted with a compression garment for the first 6 weeks, which helps you to maintain the new improved contours in your buttocks.
Will I be able to sit down after my procedure?
Sitting down may be slightly uncomfortable for a few weeks after your treatment, but this can be remedied by a special cushion that the doctor will suggest for you. You will wear a compression garment, which can help to minimize swelling and keep your new, improved rear end contours intact.
How much larger will my butt be after BBL?
Results will vary from client to client, based on the patient’s aesthetic goals as well as the amount of fat available for transfer. Our goal is to fulfill your wishes and give you the stunning physique you desire, but it is important that you are realistic in your vision for improvement.
How long do results last with a Brazilian butt lift?
Improvements in your rear end contours can last for years. It just depends on different factors such as weight gain or weight loss and/or the aging process.
