All About the Brazilian Butt Lift

butt lift in dubai

A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that augments and improves the shape and size of the buttocks through fat transfer. The technique involves removing excess fat via liposuction from areas such as the abdomen, lower back, hips, or thighs, purifying the fat, and strategically injecting it into the buttocks area for an enhanced appearance in terms of both the volume and the contour.

Why a Brazilian butt lift?

Genetics largely determine the shape and proportions of an individual’s buttocks; the skeletal structure and how the body stores fat influence the appearance of the lower body. Although exercise and diet can help in achieving a healthy body weight and tone muscles, many individuals remain unhappy with a ‘flat’ backside that lacks shape. The shape and proportion of the buttocks play a role in having an attractive and well-proportioned body.

A Brazilian butt lift or BBL can help you overcome the effects of genetics by reshaping the buttocks and the surrounding areas such as the lower back, hips, and thighs.

Ideal Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift

The ideal candidate for a BBL in Dubai is someone who is healthy with enough excess fat for grafting. In addition to this, the individual should also have the following attributes:

  • Desires to define and contour the posterior into a better shape and position
  • Seeks to enhance and lift sagging buttocks
  • Experienced weight loss and desires to have the volume and shape of the buttocks restored
  • Does not want butt implants
  • Wants to enhance the curves of the lower body
  • Seeks to enhance the overall proportions by improving the balance between the upper body and the lower body

It should be noted that the Brazilian butt lift is not a traditional lifting technique and thus does not address loose skin on the buttocks. If you have excess sagging skin on the buttocks or thighs, and you’re feeling uncomfortable about it, you can opt for thigh and buttock lift surgery as it would be more suitable in such a case.

Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

The BBL procedure is performed under anesthesia. The Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is an expert in BBL and other body contouring procedures uses liposuction to harvest fat from other areas of your body such as the stomach, hips, and thighs. The liposuction bit involves making small incisions in the skin and using a tube to remove the fat from the body.

The harvested fat is then purified and readied for injection into the buttocks.

Your Plastic Surgeon then strategically injects the processed fat into specific areas of the buttocks to create a more defined and full look.

The liposuction and fat transfer incisions are then closed with stitches. A compression garment is applied to the treatment areas to minimize the risk of bleeding and control the swelling.

Recovery and Results from Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

Recovering from a BBL surgery is largely influenced by the liposuction technique and the type of anesthesia used.

There is usually numbness immediately following the fat transfer. Expect swelling, bruising, and discomfort which can last for several days or even several weeks. Avoid sitting on the buttocks for about four to eight weeks following the procedure.

30% to 50% of the transferred fat will be reabsorbed by the body. The gluteal volume and the immediate post-operative swelling should reduce in size over time. You should refrain from any fat-burning exercises for eight weeks following the surgery so as to prevent the loss of grafted buttock fat.

You may need to have more than one procedure to achieve your desired results and it can take up to six months for the results to start being visible. The results are permanent as long as your weight does not fluctuate.
