For women looking to achieve a perkier and fuller backside, the Brazilian butt lift procedure offers a solution. This procedure works by transferring fat from the patient’s own body, usually from the hips or tummy. This fat is then removed and purified using a special device so that the fat cells are ready to be…
Not everyone is blessed with a voluminous backside. If your derriere leaves something to be desired, you may be curious about Brazilian butt lift (BBL), a popular buttocks augmentation surgery. Dr. David Funt, a top NYC plastic surgeon, performs this fat transfer surgery to reallocate surplus fat to an area where you would enjoy having fat more. In this blog, he poses a few initial questions to help decide if you are a good candidate for this surgery.
Do You Wish You Had a Larger Butt?
When you put on tight pants, does your butt still look tiny and flat? Plump, round buttocks are considered very attractive across many cultures, so having a smaller butt may leave you feeling less confident and desirable. If you would like to fill out your backside so you look great in a bikini or jeans, BBL is a terrific solution.
Do You Have Excess Fat in Other Areas?
Brazilian butt lift is a fat grafting surgery, which means that you must have fat in another area (often the abdomen or thighs) that you can contribute to your buttocks. For the fat cells to survive in a new location, they must be harvested from the patient’s own body. Additionally, by moving fat cells from these areas, Dr. Funt can help accentuate your butt’s new proportions.
If you have a slim build throughout your body, you may need to try another augmentation method, like butt implants.
Are You Healthy?
While BBL is considered a very safe procedure, any surgery carries some inherent risks. Therefore, Dr. Funt does not recommend undergoing an elective surgery to patients with certain health conditions. (He will review your medical history during a consultation to confirm your candidacy.) Furthermore, since smoking can prolong your recovery and increase complication risks, Dr. Funt encourages people who smoke or vape to quit ahead of surgery.
Are You Willing to Follow Post-Surgical Instructions?
By most accounts, the recovery for BBL is more difficult than for other procedures. Not because there is more discomfort, but because you must avoid putting pressure on your butt cheeks while they heal. That means no sleeping on your back, even if that is your preferred position. It also means no sitting, although that can be resolved by using a special BBL pillow that allows you to put pressure on your thighs instead of your buttocks. If this seems like too much of a hassle, this may not be the procedure for you.
