The BBL, Broken-Down: Everything You Should Know

lit light bulb with question marks

The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a fat transfer procedure that forms a natural-looking backside without the risks of implants. Liposuction is one of the critical processes of a BBL, used to collect fat from one or more areas of the body, usually the hips or abdomen. 

Once the fat is harvested, it's then purified and injected back to the buttocks to enhance its appearance. Given that some of the transferred fat cells won't survive, surgeons tend to inject extra fat to account for the loss.

After the procedure, you'll experience significant swelling, but once it subdues, you'll be able to enjoy your new results. 

Candidates For A BBL

A combination of genetics and lifestyle determines the shape of your body. Most people tend to store fat a bit differently, but your skeletal structure determines your silhouette.

Pregnancy or weight lifting can alter the natural shape of a person, but only to a certain extent. That's why it's ever more common to opt for cosmetic surgeries to ensure dramatic results.

All in all, the BBL is an elective cosmetic procedure. For those that have committed to a healthy lifestyle but are still unhappy with the shape of their bodies, a BBL can create a look that's impossible to achieve by solely depending on lifestyle changes.

Most men or women undergo a BBL for the following reasons:

  1. Balancing the proportions of the upper and lower body
  2. Obtaining an hourglass figure
  3. More voluminous buttocks without undergoing implant surgery
  4. Better fit into clothes
  5. Minimizing excess fat in other areas of the body

Anyone undergoing a BBL must have realistic expectations about the surgery. That's why we recommend having thorough discussions with your surgeon to be aware of all necessary details before going under the knife.

BBLs Aren't For Everybody

A BBL is more effective for patients that have excess fat in several areas of their body. Those with a low body fat percentage are better of getting buttocks implants if they're interested in obtaining dramatic results.

That being said, a BBL is designed to enhance your backside, not completely transform it. There's only so much fat that a surgeon can extract from your body, so it doesn't become a medical issue.

Nonetheless, it's important to note that buttocks implants aren't the safest alternative on the market. A foreign object within the body can trigger harmful body responses such as an autoimmune disease.
