The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedure creates the ultimate silhouette transformation. Imagine removing unwanted fat from your stomach, back, and hips, and using that fat to create a more shapely, rounded butt. If you’ve been dreaming of a more balanced silhouette with perkier, feminine curves, BBL can help you re-contour your body.
BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS
Augmenting Your Butt with Your Own Fat
Removing Unwanted Fat For A Sleeker Physique
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure begins by removing unwanted fat throughout the stomach, hips, back, and occasionally, thighs. This helps create a sleek, fit physique and a nice contrast for your new curves.
Harvesting & Processing Fat For BBL
The fat removed during the first part of the procedure is harvested using specialized cannulas that protect the fat cells from damage during the process. The fat is then processed to ensure only the highest-quality fat is transferred.
Using Fat To Sculpt New Curves
Finally, the very highest quality fat cells are injected into the buttocks, to sculpt a rounder, perkier derriere. Because the normal muscle tone and placement has been left intact through the use of Comfort Calm Local Anesthesia℠ (see below for more details on this), the surgeon is able to sculpt beautiful buttock mounds that maintain their natural curves during movement as well as while standing still, a key detail of natural-looking Brazilian Butt Lift results.
The Type of Anesthesia Used in Butt Augmentation Surgery
Reflections is proud to offer our patients a uniquely relaxing surgical experience with Comfort Calm Local Anesthesia℠. Comfort Calm Local Anesthesia allows patients to remain comfortably awake and gently relaxed throughout their procedure, and offers a few very important advantages over general anesthesia:
SHORTER, EASIER RECOVERY AFTER SURGERY
General Anesthesia uses drugs which pass through the blood-brain barrier and require an intensive detoxification effort by the body to clear away after surgery. This is why you’ll often feel nauseous or loopy for a few days after. Comfort Calm Local Anesthesia℠ does not affect your brain in this same way, and instead, allows your body to focus on healing from your surgery, not your anesthesia.
BETTER, MORE NATURAL-LOOKING RESULTS
General Anesthesia works by paralyzing the muscles of the body, causing them to go limp, and lose their normal tone and function. In cosmetic surgeries, this creates a problem where the surgeon must estimate how and where the muscle normally lays, and then sculpt the buttocks’ mounds around that estimate. With Comfort Calm Local Anesthesia℠, there’s no estimating, and the results can be fine-tuned in real-time. This makes for a more natural-looking result both when you are still, as well as when you are moving.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who’s a good candidate for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure?
Anyone who is generally in good health, but desires a more shapely buttocks, and has extra fat can benefit from the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
How much fat volume can you add to my butt with BBL?
The amount varies person to person. Determining factors include: the elasticity of your skin in the area where the fat will be transferred to, how much fat can be harvested, and what will give you the aesthetic contour you are looking proportionate to the rest of your body.
How much fat can you remove from my unwanted areas during BBL?
This varies from person to person as well. During your consultation, Dr Chasin can give you a really good estimate of what would give your desired result.
What can I do pre-operatively to make sure my BBL procedure is a success?
We will provide you with pre-op instructions to help make your procedure a success. You will need to avoid anything that thins the blood for 2 weeks prior to the procedure, for example, aspirin, Motrin, vitamin E. If you bruise easily you can take an over the counter supplement arnica.
What can I do post-operatively to make sure my BBL procedure has the best results?
We will provide you with detailed instructions for your post-op period. The most important thing you can do is not to sit directly on your buttocks for long periods in the first 3 weeks.
How much time should I plan to take off work for a BBL procedure? How can I minimize the time I take off work for BBL?
This depends on your job. If your job requires a lot of sitting you may want to take 2 weeks off. If you stand most of the day at your job, you may be fine to go back after 3-4 days as long as you do not have to drive.
How long will my BBL results last?
Results are extremely long-lasting, and get better with time.
How much does Brazilian Butt Lift cost at your office?
Brazilian Butt Lift starts at $8500, which includes liposuction of 1 area (most typically the abdomen/stomach), all surgical fees, compression garment, and pre-op and post-op care.
Can I finance my BBL?
Absolutely. Your cosmetic surgery is an investment in your future, so Reflections offers patients a variety of ways to finance that investment. We do accept most major credit cards, but we also offer specialty financing options that cater specifically to healthcare costs. Those options can be found on our financing options page.
Will BBL hurt?
There should be little to no discomfort during the procedure since you will receive some medication by mouth prior to being numbed in the areas where the fat is harvested and transferred.
How long does the BBL procedure take?
It greatly depends on how many areas will be sculpted to harvest the fat. On average, roughly 3 hours.
