A round, high butt is what many people dream of when they turn around in the mirror to see how their backside looks. This dream can be a reality with fat transfer.
Fat transfer is a safe, effective way to achieve backside beauty. Many men and women have chosen this procedure and love their results. Now it’s your turn to learn about it to find out if it’s right for you.
About Fat Transfer to the Buttocks
Transferring fat from an area of your body to the buttocks is called a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). A plastic or cosmetic surgeon evaluates the body to determine where fat can be removed, such as in the abdominal area and thighs. If a patient does not have enough excess body fat, the procedure cannot be done.
After the evaluation, the plastic or cosmetic surgeon will schedule the procedure. During the procedure, liposuction will be used to remove fatty tissue from the areas identified during the consultation. After the fat has been purified, the fat is injected into the fatty tissue layer of the buttock.
An experienced surgeon will inject the liquid fat into the exact places it needs to go to improve the look of the butt. Gradually, the patient will receive injections to produce a rounding of the butt so that the desired look is achieved.
Recovery from the BBL
The benefit of a BBL is that there is much less down time than buttock implant surgery, which we do not perform. While we are not able to give set recovery times for patients we have not yet evaluated, down time is usually two weeks shorter than with implant surgery. We will tell you more about recovery during your consultation or pre-operative appointment.
It is important for you to know that you will need to wear compression garment during the healing process. This helps reduce swelling and allows the transferred fatty tissue to adhere to the body in its new position.
The Costs of BBL
Insurance does not cover the costs of a BBL because there is no medical necessity to have the procedure. Every person is different, so the exact surgical cost cannot be determined until the consultation.
We do have financing options available. Bad credit is not a problem, and we offer 0% interest financing for those who do qualify. We will do everything possible to make your BBL surgery affordable!
