What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

BBL Surgery

A Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as gluteal fat grafting or buttock augmentation with fat grafting, is a surgical procedure where excess fat is removed from areas like the belly, hips, lower back, or thighs and transferred to the buttocks. Unlike traditional buttock lifts, the goal of a BBL is not to raise the buttocks but to increase their volume, resulting in a more curvaceous and natural appearance.

The Two-Step Procedure

A BBL is a two-step procedure. First, the surgeon performs liposuction to remove fat from the donor areas. Liposuction involves using a small plastic tube called a cannula to suction out the fat. The extracted fat is then purified to remove excess fluids. In the second step, the purified fat is injected into specific areas of the buttocks to achieve the desired shape and size.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

When the day of your BBL Brazilian Butt Lift procedure arrives, it is natural to feel a mix of excitement and nervousness. Understanding what to expect during the procedure can help alleviate some of the anxiety and allow you to feel more confident in your decision.

Before the procedure begins, you will be given anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Your plastic surgeon will then perform liposuction to harvest the fat from the predetermined donor sites. The fat is carefully collected, purified, and prepared for injection into your buttocks.

Once the fat is ready, your surgeon will strategically inject it into different areas of your buttocks to create the desired shape and volume. The injections are typically made through small incisions that are easily concealed. Your surgeon will meticulously sculpt and contour your buttocks to achieve a natural-looking and proportionate result.

The length of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure can vary depending on the amount of fat being transferred and the complexity of the case. However, it generally takes a few hours to complete. After the procedure, you will be taken to a recovery area where you will be monitored until you are ready to go home.

Factors to Consider

Overall Health: Good health is crucial for any surgical procedure.

Adequate Fat for Transfer: Sufficient excess fat in areas like the belly, hips, or thighs is necessary for the transfer to the buttocks.

Desired Size and Shape: Clearly communicate your goals and expectations to your plastic surgeon.

Post-Surgery Restrictions: Ability to avoid sitting directly on the buttocks and sleeping on your back for several weeks.

Combining Procedures: If you have concerns about loose or saggy skin in addition to a desire for enhanced buttocks, combining a Brazilian Butt Lift with a buttock lift and skin tightening procedure could be an option. To determine the most suitable approach, consult with GM Care Surgeons.”

BBL Recovery

BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) recovery typically involves a period of rest and limited physical activity to allow for optimal healing. During the initial days following the procedure, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the buttocks and donor sites where fat was harvested. It’s essential to follow post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon, which may include wearing compression garments, avoiding sitting or lying directly on the buttocks, and taking prescribed medications to manage pain and reduce the risk of infection. Most patients can expect to return to light activities within a few weeks, but strenuous exercise and full sitting may be restricted for a longer period. While individual recovery experiences may vary, adhering to post-operative care guidelines is crucial for achieving the best possible results from BBL surgery.

Fat Transfer for Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

Fat transfer for Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a patient’s own fat to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks. During the procedure, excess fat is harvested from donor areas of the body through liposuction, such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. The harvested fat is then purified and injected into specific areas of the buttocks to create a fuller and more contoured appearance. Fat transfer for BBL is favored by many individuals seeking a natural-looking enhancement without the use of implants. It offers the dual benefit of slimming down areas of unwanted fat while simultaneously enhancing the buttocks, resulting in a more proportionate and shapely figure.

Fat Grafting Procedures like BBL

Fat grafting procedures, such as the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), involve using a patient’s own fat to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks. During the procedure, excess fat is harvested from donor areas of the body through liposuction and then purified before being injected into specific areas of the buttocks to create a fuller and more contoured appearance. BBL offers a natural-looking enhancement without the need for implants, providing patients with a more proportionate and shapely figure. Recovery typically involves a period of rest and limited physical activity to allow for optimal healing, with most patients returning to light activities within a few weeks. Overall, fat grafting procedures like BBL are popular options for individuals seeking to enhance their curves and achieve a more aesthetically pleasing buttock contour.

BBL Surgery Risks

While the Brazilian Butt Lift is generally considered a safe and effective procedure, it is important to be aware of the potential risks and considerations involved. Like any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks, and it is crucial to choose a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to minimize these risks.

Some potential risks associated with an operation include infection, bleeding, scarring, fat necrosis, and asymmetry. Your plastic surgeon will discuss these risks with you during the consultation phase and provide you with detailed information on how they will be mitigated.

It is also important to have realistic expectations about the outcome of your BBL. While the procedure can enhance the size and shape of your buttocks, it is important to understand that individual results may vary. Your plastic surgeon will assess your unique anatomy and discuss the achievable outcomes during the consultation process

Gastric Sleeve Surgery in TurkeyI booked with Global Medical care for Gastric Sleeve Surgery in Turkey on 15th February. From arriving at the airport right through to being dropped off at the airport the service was 10/10. I was greeted at the airport by a lovely man, who chauffeured me around the whole time I was there. I was taken to the hospital for tests ready for my surgery the next day. The surgeon I had DR Mehmet Yalim Uçtum was amazing, all the staff at the hospital was great. After 3 nights in hospital I was then discharged and put in a hotel for the night, which I was then able to go around Izmir to do some shopping. The next morning I was collected and took back to the airport. I travelled alone from England to Turkey for my surgey and not once did I feel at ease, everyone was so lovely. This has to be one of the best decision I have made.Anyone who is thinking about booking with this company, I would highly recommend them. The team have been so supportive, messaging and checking in on at all times, it's lovely to know they have stuck by me all the way.So thanks again to Global Medical care for a great experience *****Kashia Briggs

Throughout my whole journey from start to finish I had updates and support when needed. Dr Yalim Uctum answered all my questions and visited me daily after my surgery. I went to turkey by myself and was put at ease throughout the whole journey. Couldn’t ask for a better team.

Georgie Forder

Gastric SleeveFrom the moment I enquired with Global Medical Care I have received constant communication, flying to Turkey for surgery is very daunting, however we were made to feel welcome and relaxed. Our Dr has been incredible, he must have visited us 8/9 times during our stay, answering any questions, and really made me feel that he cared. Our translator Sammy was on hand to help with anything we needed and even a rep from GMC came and saw us and spent time with us. Gastric Sleeve is a big operation and the team made us feel so supported. Our surgeon has just text even after discharge. I can’t thank you all enough. My life has completely changed.

The best decision with global medical care team.Just on my last day before travelling back home to England, after having a gastric sleeve with Dr Yalim Ucktum via Global Medical Care. Right from the initial contact, I felt confident in my decision and comforted by every question answered by them. When we got to Turkey, everything was ready, the transfers were lovely big Mercedes, when we got to the hospital for our first night, our English translator was there straight away and ordered us dinner. We started with our first test which then carried on the next morning, there are so many tests and this was really reassuring. Our doctor came to visit us before our op and just is the loveliest man. The Global Medical Care team were also there, which was lovely as we had been speaking with them for so long. The op itself went really well, and we’ve had great after care from the whole team, including the doctor who kept coming to check on us. I would recommend over and over.AMY WINTER Gastric Sleeve

Total recognition for hair transplants with GMC!
Once again, a big thank you to the whole team at global médical care who did an excellent job for my hair transplant. A very warm welcome, but above all real explanations about the procedure itself, as well as excellent follow-up before, during and after the operation. Both the team and Mr Albert, the Swiss contact, regularly check up on us and are ready to answer all our questions so that everything goes as smoothly as possible. You should know that there are a very large number of hospitals and clinics offering this service, but they are not all the same. This team is very professional and respects to the letter all the aseptic rules for this type of operation, as I myself was a nurse in France, I was very careful with the equipment, changing sterile gloves each time I entered the operating room...
I would highly recommend this team and would like to thank them again for the work they are currently doing in the 1st week post-op.Greg Colandonio

FAQs

You need to have fatty tissue to be a candidate for the procedure. Because fatty tissue needs to be taken from parts of your body and transferred into your buttocks. If you are a female in your late teens to mid-30s, you may be the right candidate for the procedure. Men can also undergo butt lift.

It is very important not to sit directly on the buttocks.  At the time of your preoperative visit, you will be taught how to avoid compromising your outcome while still being able to rest.

We recommend you wear it for about 6-8 weeks post-surgery. This will assist in the reduction of swelling and inflammation caused by the liposuction. The compression also assists your lymphatic drainage system discharge all fluids injected during surgery.

Good news! The results of your Butt Lift can last for a length of time as long you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Weight fluctuations can have an effect on your procedure. Longer-term results may depend on how much of the injected fat naturally absorbs into your body. Buttock size will fluctuate the size of your buttock as injected fat cells may expand or reduce.

Good news! The results of your Butt Lift can last for a length of time as long you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Weight fluctuations can have an effect on your procedure. Longer-term results may depend on how much of the injected fat naturally absorbs into your body. Buttock size will fluctuate the size of your buttock as injected fat cells may expand or reduce.

Maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle would be all that is necessary. Exercise, of course, is an important component, but aggressive dieting and exercise will not be necessary.

The benefits of a Butt Lift can be seen right away- in other words, even though there will be some swelling as a result of the procedure, the reduced contour in the areas suctioned and the improved shape and size of the backside will be evident the day after surgery. As this swelling goes away over the first month or two, you will get a better idea of the final outcome, with the final result seen at about 8 weeks to 3 months.

While there are no hard and fast requirements for proceeding with Butt Lift, it is necessary that the patient have enough subcutaneous fat available to achieve their goals. Our surgeons who have a lot of experience in the Butt Lift Technique can determine your candidacy after a careful examination.

Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions tailored to your situation. Please do not act before you get your customized list. But general guidelines that our surgeons are sharing with their patients for Butt Lift Surgery is as follows:

  • You need to wear your garment to help reduce swelling
  • You may experience pain for the first 24 hours. In order to avoid excessive pain and discomfort, you should take your pain medication regularly
  • You will be given a prescription for narcotic pain medication as well as antibiotics by your doctor. Please follow the medication plan as instructed by the doctor
  • You should not drive while taking pain medication
  • You should refrain from exercising for the first three weeks
  • You should not sit for 2-3 weeks after the procedure. For the first week, sitting to use the toilet is allowed. For the second week, you may sit for five minutes twice a day

You will get a detailed customized list from your surgeon about what to do and what not to do before the operation. Please do not act before you get your customized list. Here is general guidance that our surgeons share with their patients:

  • You should inform your surgeon about your routine medication and health history
  • Laboratory and EKG (if they are required) tests must be done. The procedure has to be canceled if there is the slightest chance of pregnancy
  • You should avoid taking any products containing aspirin and ibuprofen non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication and herbal supplements two weeks before surgery
  • You are advised to stop drinking alcohol one week before the procedure
  • You need to stop eating and drinking eight hours before the procedure

Although it may vary from patient to patient, here’s a typical daily schedule for liposuction operations:
First Day:

  • You arrive at the airport and your driver will wait for you at the exit of the customs zone with a tag with your name.
  • He will drive you to the hospital and hand you to your patient representative who is fluent in your language.
  • After the initial registration procedure, you will meet your doctor in person. Your surgeon will explain the procedure in detail and examine you before he advises on how the new look of your butt would be. You will have an opportunity to discuss your preferences and expectations from your operation.
  • You will have your last checks to prepare you for liposuction. These may include laboratory tests and sometimes tomography.
  • Then your procedure will start and will last for one to two hours.
  • Within an hour after the procedure, anesthesia will ease and you will regain consciousness.
  • Your doctor performs an initial check-up and you stay at the hospital on the first night of surgery.

2nd day:

  • This will be another healing and rehabilitation day for you.
  • Your doctor will perform a check-up in the morning before your discharge from the hospital.
  • You will move to your hotel room and rest as much as possible for the rest of the day.

3rd day:

  • You are advised to continue resting in your hotel room.
  • You should avoid heavy activities but may take a walk or go out for dinner.
  • Shopping, attending a cultural or sightseeing tour might be a good option for you to visit different places in the city.

4th day:

  • You will visit your doctor in the hospital for the last checks.
  • Your doctor advises you further on medication and the types of activities you can get involved in throughout your recovery period.
  • You will be ready to go back home after the fourth day.

To achieve the best outcome, the only requirement is that the fat is healthy and that there is enough of it. Liposuction is a critical component of the Butt Lift technique, in which fat is removed from areas where it is not complementary to the patient’s figure, and grafted into the buttock area for an improved shape. Arms, back, hips, thighs & abdomen are all common areas that are great for harvesting fat.
