Brazilian Butt Lift Overview

The Brazilian Butt Lift (or BBL) is the best way to get a backside to be proud of. Using a combination of liposuction and fat transfer, a BBL is safe and very effective. It is one of the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures in the United States. Some problems that can occur are small buttock, deflated buttock, and/or poor buttock and lower body contour. If the problem is excess abdominal skin and subcutaneous fat that continues around the back, a belt lipectomy or lower body lift may be a better solution.

Facts About Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift is a fat transfer procedure that enhances the size and shape of the buttocks naturally, without implants. Excess fat is typically removed from the hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs with liposuction, and is then injected into the buttocks. Read below for further information and facts about Brazilian butt lifts and all that goes with the procedure and recovery process.

Positioning

After a Brazilian butt lift is very important to avoid pressure on your butt. The fat grafts survive best with minimal outside pressure and squishing. Moreover, pressure in certain areas and not others could create an irregular contour. For one week after a Brazilian Butt Lift, you will need to avoid lying on your back or sitting. This means for 1 week you have to lie on your sides, lay on your stomach or stand. The only time it is ok to sit is when you are on the toilet. It can be difficult to avoid lying on your back while sleeping so most patients create walls with pillows to help prevent them from rolling over. After 1 week you may sit with your buttock suspended in the air. This means placing a towel, pillow or cushion under your thighs (not your butt) to suspend your buttock in the air. After 4 weeks you may start laying on your back and sitting normally.

Wait 4 weeks.

Plan to take 1-2 weeks off of work, depending on your type of work.
