What is the Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a transformative cosmetic procedure meticulously designed to enhance both the size and shape of the buttocks, achieving a more contoured and voluptuous appearance. This innovative technique involves a two-fold process, beginning with the gentle liposuction of excess fat from designated donor areas such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. The extracted fat is then purified and strategically injected into specific buttocks regions, creating a harmonious and natural-looking augmentation. This intricate approach adds volume to the buttocks and sculpts the surrounding areas, ensuring a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing silhouette. At Baumholtz Plastic Surgery, our experienced team customizes each Brazilian Butt Lift to complement your unique body contours, providing you with the curves you desire for a confident and alluring appearance.

Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Right for Me?

Individuals in good health are considered ideal candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) at Baumholtz Plastic Surgery. To achieve the desired volume enhancement, candidates must have sufficient donor fat in the abdomen, hips, lower back, or thighs. Nonsmokers are preferred as smoking can impair healing and increase surgical risks. Maintaining a stable weight is another crucial factor for those considering the procedure, ensuring that results are long-lasting post-surgery.

For a deeper understanding of potential outcomes, we encourage candidates to explore before-and-after photos and patient testimonials on reputable platforms like RealSelf. These resources provide valuable insights into the transformative possibilities offered by the BBL procedure. The best way to determine if the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure suits your aesthetic goals is to schedule a consultation with us so we can assess your body, concerns, and goals to create a custom treatment plan.

Safety First: Brazilian Butt Lift Potential Risks & Complications

While Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBL) offer transformative results, it's important to acknowledge potential risks and complications associated with any surgical procedure. Choosing Dr. Baumholtz as your surgeon ensures you are choosing a plastic surgeon with a stringent commitment to safety. It is also essential for patients to diligently follow postoperative instructions to minimize risks. Common complications include infection, which, although rare, can be prevented with proper wound care and antibiotic usage. The risk of fat embolism, where fat gets into the bloodstream, is further reduced when performed by an experienced surgeon. Dr. Baumholtz ensures the placement of fat during the BBL goes exactly where it is supposed to. It's worth noting that temporary numbness is a common side effect, but long-lasting changes in sensation are rare. With careful consideration and adherence to guidelines, these risks can be mitigated, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of a safely executed Brazilian Butt Lift.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

At Baumholtz Plastic Surgery, you will embark on a guided recovery journey following your Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) with Dr. Baumholtz. His prescription of appropriate medications helps manage pain and swelling, with precise instructions that are paramount for a seamless recovery. Postoperative care is pivotal in promoting healing and ensuring enduring results after your BBL surgery in San Antonio. Rest takes center stage during recovery, and supported sitting positions are recommended for at least two months post-procedure. We will delve into specific aftercare instructions during your pre-surgery consultation and subsequent follow-up appointments. We advise wearing a compression garment to aid healing. The purpose of compression garments is two-fold: they reduce swelling, improve circulation, and provide essential support to the newly contoured buttocks during the healing process.

These garments, tailored to your individual needs, are recommended by Dr. Baumholtz based on size, shape, and required compression levels. Typically, they are worn for four to six weeks, although this may vary depending on your circumstances. Attending all scheduled follow-up appointments is crucial, so we can monitor your progress closely throughout the healing process. Open communication with our team is encouraged to address any concerns that may arise during recovery. Should you experience unusual symptoms, promptly contacting Dr. Baumholtz enables early intervention, effectively managing complications and ensuring optimal results from your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery in San Antonio.

What is the life expectancy of a BBL?

Is a BBL or fat transfer permanent?

What is the difference between a BBL and butt implants?

What happens to a BBL after five years?

After five years, most patients still enjoy satisfactory results from their Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, and maintaining stable body weight through proper nutrition and regular exercise helps preserve your enhanced buttock contour.

What happens to a BBL after ten years?

The results of a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) can last even beyond ten years. Still, factors like aging, weight fluctuations, and lifestyle choices may affect longevity, so maintain your results with a healthy lifestyle.

What is the life expectancy of a BBL?

A well-performed Brazilian Butt Lift has long-lasting results that can endure for decades or even a lifetime, and the transferred fat cells behave like natural fat cells in response to changes in body weight.

Is a BBL or fat transfer permanent?

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a two-part procedure involving liposuction to shape the transition around the buttocks and then using fat from your body to enhance your pre-existing contours. Approximately 60-80% of the transferred fat will be present at 1 year and remains stable as long as you maintain a consistent weight.

What is the difference between a BBL and butt implants?

Buttock implants, solid silicone devices, are placed within the muscles of the buttocks to add projection. In contrast, a BBL, which includes liposuction and fat transfer, primarily addresses the contour or shape of the buttocks rather than projection.
