Sometimes Bigger Is Better – Brazilian Butt Lift
By Dr. Michael L. Thornton | Mar 28, 2018
When it comes to your curves, sometimes bigger is better. The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedure has been growing in popularity since its inception over the last several years. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, predictions indicate the popularity of the Brazilian Butt Lift will continue to rise in 2018 and beyond.
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a safe and effective procedure for achieving the ultimate in body and buttock contouring. At Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Michael L. Thornton, a double board certified cosmetic surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, offers the BBL procedure to clients interested in buttock enhancement using natural fat transfer.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a two-in-one procedure that combines natural fat transfer buttock augmentation along with liposuction body contouring of the abdomen, flanks, and back. Fat is harvested from liposuction donor sites and then re-injected into the buttocks to add volume and sculpt the ideal figure. Common fat donor sites include the abdomen, flanks, thighs and back.
Silicone implants used to be the method of choice for buttock augmentation, but the BBL has quickly become the preferred method due to its ability to provide simultaneous liposuction assisted body contouring.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift?
Good candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure are patients who are unhappy with the size or shape of their buttocks and also have excess fat that they would like removed. The ideal candidate is one with a “boxy” figure – with hips and waist about the same size.
The buttocks can be completely reshaped using BBL procedure. Patients can be good candidates for the procedure if aging or weight loss has caused an unattractive rear end, or if they would simply like to change the natural shape and add volume of their buttocks. A BBL procedure can also correct asymmetry and make your figure more proportionate and balanced.
If you are interested in BBL surgery, make sure you are prepared for some downtime. Most patients need to take two weeks off from work before they are able to return to their normal routines. Typically, most patients will not be able to sit for approximately two weeks.
