About BBL

A Brazilian butt lift is an effective way to augment the buttocks. Using fat taken from the patient’s own body, this gluteal re-contouring procedure creates a pair of full and shapely buttocks. Appreciation for a finely sculpted behind is more evident than ever these days. Social media influencers have changed the contours of the conversation about what constitutes a beautiful body in our day and age.

The Brazilian Butt Lift is among the most popular procedures in plastic surgery today. Some recent data has indicated that a person undergoes a fat transfer procedure to their buttocks every 30 seconds.[1] And, there’s a good reason for that: the Brazilian Butt Lift is a transformational surgery, and when performed by a board-certified surgeon, the procedure is safe and effective.

Brazilian Benefits

A BBL lends a luscious lift to your bottom that will make you look great from every angle. A key advantage of the BBL is that it uses grafts of your own fat tissue to give you a boost.[2] You can add volume where you want it for rounder hips and a butt with more projection while reducing it where you don’t!

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is actually a sequence of surgeries meant to trim down some areas and augment others. A round of Liposuction initiates your BBL. Using precise Liposculpture techniques, your surgeon shall first harvest donor fat from your belly, love handles, and other problem spots that you’d like to improve.

After the removed fat has been processed and purified, your autologous fat can now be grafted to your beautiful booty. Your surgeon will inject the fat grafts artfully under the skin. With an eye on your already existing contours, your doctor can adequately augment them.

Complementary Procedures: Mommy Makeover

A Mommy Makeover at Esthetica is a combination of different plastic surgery interventions. It provides head-to-toe body contouring for a woman looking to recapture her pre-baby body after the trials of motherhood. The big advantage of a Mommy Makeover is that you can sequence your procedures in a way that makes the most sense for you.

Many women who have been pregnant are bothered by the lax, loose skin that accumulates at their midsection as a result of their overstretched bellies.

The solution these women seek is a Tummy Tuck to help sculpt their silhouette and begin their Mommy Makeover.

Vaginal rejuvenation is also very important to many mothers. Esthetica offers Labiaplasty to help these beloved moms animate their youthful vitality. The procedure trims down elongated labial lips and corrects embarrassing asymmetries.

Add a Breast Augmentation to match your Brazilian Butt Lift and complete your Mommy Makeover. Start a new chapter in your life looking exactly the way you want. It is wise to consider a comprehensive surgical strategy so that you can see which procedures might combine well to achieve your desired results.

Your Best Days Are in Front of You

Many women crave the elusive “hourglass” figure, with tight, smooth contours at the waist and a voluptuous backside that draws that eye and sets hearts racing. Be the shape of desire with a BBL at the artful hands of our Esthetica team.

We will bring balance to your silhouette while we enhance your most alluring features. Your buttocks will have an aesthetic gravity that’s sure to attract attention. A Brazilian Butt Lift by Esthetica will enhance the contours of your life!

Recovery after BBL

Full recovery from your Brazilian Butt Lift can take up to six weeks. Watch your backside while you convalesce, literally! Your buttocks will be sore, so avoid sitting directly on your bottom for the first several days after surgery.[3]

As you become more mobile a week or two into your recovery, your doctor can clear you to drive so that you can make short trips to the store and eventually return to work. Fortunately, you can sit in your car to drive with the help of a special donut-shaped, BBL pillow. A BBL pillow is a small cushion that goes under your lower thigh area to take the pressure off of your buttocks while sitting.

How Soon Can I Sit After BBL?

The first two weeks of your recovery will be the most crucial in making sure you bounce back to your regular routine as quickly and safely as possible. Esthetica wants you to enjoy your best life. Avoid disrupting the transplanted fat for the first two weeks after your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery. Do not sit for prolonged periods of time.[4] When doing stationary activities, such as watching television or working on the computer, we recommend lying on your stomach or resting on the front of your hips.

What Should I Eat After BBL?

A cleverly curated post-BBL diet will help you create the appropriate conditions so the new you can shine through. Eat nutrient-dense foods that will provide your body with the essential minerals and vitamins. Consuming healthy fats helps add volume to your healing fat graft. We recommend salmon, avocados, grass-fed butter, walnuts, extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil.

Is Brazilian Butt Lift Permanent?

The results of a Brazilian Butt Lift are, indeed, long-lasting. You should be aware that, like any cosmetic surgery, your immediate post-surgical result is not your final one. When you get a BBL, about 50% of the transferred fat cells will eventually be reabsorbed by your body. Those fat cells that remain, however, will be fully grafted to the new site. That means the cells have reconnected with your blood supply. Your autologous fat shall again become a living part of you.

Is Brazilian Buttock Lift Painful?

Our patients do not report any exceptional pain during their recovery. Soreness is probably the most common feeling people have.  Patients describe this pain as a muscular soreness in the buttocks where they’ll feel the most discomfort when sitting. In the early days of your recovery, you can manage any discomfort with prescription pain medication. Later, you can switch to over-the-counter ibuprofen.

How Do You Go To The Bathroom After BBL?

This is a common question that our patients are most afraid to ask. It is difficult, but far from impossible. After a BBL, you would want to squat over the toilet. This is so you will not put too much pressure on your surgery site. It is beneficial to take a stool softener or have a good intake of fiber so that you will not have to squat over the toilet for prolonged periods of time. Also, there are step-ups that you can use to squat higher over the toilet bowl and elevated toilet seats available with handles to assist you.
