Brazilian butt lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift combines two procedures, namely liposuction and fat transplantation, which are performed together during a single surgery to enhance the overall shape of the silhouette. Initially, the surgeon removes excess fat tissue from areas such as the upper back, arms, abdomen, thighs, flanks, or other areas with unwanted fat. The extracted fat is then purified and specially prepared for subsequent injection. Small incisions are made, and the surgeon strategically transfers the patient’s own fat to specific areas of the buttocks using a cannula, resulting in a more pronounced buttock appearance and improved contour of the figure.

Who is eligible for Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?

A suitable candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift is generally a healthy individual, although certain health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, bleeding disorders, and heart or respiratory diseases may increase the risk of complications.

Additionally, the candidate’s body mass index (BMI) should not exceed 28, as obesity significantly increases the likelihood of adverse effects.

Moreover, for this particular procedure, the patient should have sufficient subcutaneous fat that can be extracted and transplanted. Patients with a slimmer physique may consider alternative options such as buttock implant surgery, which will be further discussed below.

What to expect from this surgery?

  1. Fat harvesting: The procedure begins with liposuction to harvest excess fat from donor areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips. The fat is carefully extracted using specialised cannulas.
  2. Fat processing: After harvesting, the fat is processed to purify it and remove any impurities or excess fluids. This step ensures that only healthy fat cells are used for the transfer.
  3. Fat injection: The processed fat is then injected into various layers of the buttocks to create volume and enhance the desired shape. The surgeon carefully sculpts and contours the buttocks to achieve a natural and aesthetically pleasing result.

What to expect after the surgery?

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) surgery is a popular procedure that aims to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks. Here are some things to expect from BBL surgery and the recovery process:

  • Postoperative swelling: Swelling is a common occurrence after BBL surgery and can persist for several weeks. It is important to be patient as the swelling gradually subsides over time.
  • Discomfort and pain: You may experience some discomfort and pain in the treated areas after the surgery. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medications to manage any discomfort. Follow their instructions on how and when to take them.
  • Compression garments: You will be required to wear compression garments on the treated areas to help minimise swelling, provide support, and aid in the healing process. Follow your surgeon’s instructions on how long to wear the garments.
  • Limitations on sitting and lying down: To protect the newly transferred fat cells, you may be advised to avoid sitting or lying directly on your buttocks for a certain period. Your surgeon will provide specific instructions on when and how to modify your sitting and sleeping positions.
  • Limited physical activity: Strenuous activities and exercise should be avoided during the initial recovery phase. Your surgeon will provide guidelines on when it is safe to gradually resume physical activities and exercise.
  • Fat survival and contour refinement: Initially after the surgery, the buttocks may appear larger due to swelling. As the swelling subsides and the body heals, the shape and size of the buttocks will gradually refine. Not all of the transferred fat cells may survive, and your surgeon will discuss this possibility with you during the consultation.
  • Follow-up appointments: Regular follow-up appointments with your surgeon will be scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure proper healing. These appointments are an opportunity to address any concerns or ask questions related to your recovery.
  • Long-term results: The final results of a BBL can take several months to fully manifest. As the swelling subsides and the body adjusts, you will begin to see the enhanced shape and contour of your buttocks. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow your surgeon’s advice to optimise and maintain the long-term results.

It’s crucial to have open and clear communication with your surgeon throughout the entire process. They will provide personalised instructions and guidance based on your unique circumstances and desired outcome. Following their recommendations and taking proper care during the recovery period will contribute to a smoother and more successful BBL surgery outcome.

A guide for smooth recovery?

  • Compression garments: Your surgeon may recommend wearing compression garments or a specialized compression garment for the buttocks to reduce swelling, aid in contouring, and promote healing. These garments are typically worn for several weeks following the surgery.
  • Limiting sitting and sleeping positions: To protect the newly transferred fat cells, you will be advised to avoid sitting or lying directly on your buttocks for about two weeks or as instructed by your surgeon. Instead, you may need to use a specially designed cushion or lie on your stomach or sides.

To achieve the best possible outcomes, it is advisable to undergo a series of personalized lymph drainage massages following your surgery. Amber Surgery clinic in Dublin provides post-operation clients with lymphatic massages at discounts of up to 50% (bookings available from 23rd of June)
