The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a popular cosmetic surgery for women to enhance their buttocks. This procedure transfers fat to the buttocks to optimize their size and shape. In Great Falls, a Brazilian butt lift is offered by Great Falls Plastic Surgery to people who want to achieve their ideal behind.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Some people are not satisfied with how their buttocks look and want to improve their shape and volume. The Brazilian butt lift is the ideal solution for this problem.
The Brazilian butt lift is a type of buttocks-augmentation surgery that enhances a person’s rear end by adding volume to it. It involves removing excess fat from other parts of the body and transferring it to the buttocks to enhance its curve, plumpness, and appeal. This provides the added benefit of contouring and slimming down other areas of the body.
Am I a Good Candidate?
People who are not satisfied with their buttocks but are reluctant to get implants are good candidates for a BBL. Those who have lost the natural shape of their buttocks due to weight changes or aging are also ideal candidates for Brazilian butt lifts. Candidates must have sufficient fat in other areas to support this procedure.
Your Brazilian Butt Lift Consultation
During your consultation at Great Falls Plastic Surgery, you will discuss the results you want to achieve with Dr. Ploplys. You will also learn all the details of the BBL process, including recovery and aftercare steps. You may receive prescriptions to help prepare for the procedure and to aid with recovery.
The BBL butt-augmentation procedure can last up to four hours. General anesthesia is administered to the patient before the procedure.
The procedure is composed of three steps. The first one is liposuction, which secures the necessary fat from other areas of the body. A small incision is made in the area where the fat is stored, and then a tube called a cannula is inserted. Medical suction is used to remove the fat through the tube.
The next step is purifying the fat to get rid of excess fluids and damaged or dead fat cells. Lastly, local anesthesia is administered to the buttocks, and then the purified fat is injected into several areas where micro incisions are made.
Healing and Recovery
The initial BBL recovery period is two weeks; during this time, the patient has to wear a supportive elastic garment and cannot lie on or sit on the buttocks. Patients must stay home from work during this time. It will take at least a month or two before the patient is allowed to engage in strenuous physical activities again.
While initial results are noticeable immediately, the full results of the procedure can be seen after two to three months.
Brazilian Butt Lift Cost
The cost of a BBL is determined based on factors like surgeon fees, hospital accommodation bills, anesthesia, and aftercare service. The price may also be impacted by the amount of fat being transferred and the number of areas being contoured. Health insurance generally does not cover the cost of this procedure.
