The BBL, also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, is a procedure where liposuction and fat transfer are combined to remove fat from one area and add it to another in order to create a fuller and more contoured backside. A BBL is simply the reallocation of fat cells to allow for a fuller backside and a slimmer waist and thighs.
How Does this work?
Dr. Perry explains that, “fat is a storage compartment. If you take in any calories, and you do not burn the very second you take them they are stored as fat. Everyone is born with a certain number of fat cells, in certain concentrations and certain locations.” This is important to understand because patients often want to take as much fat away as possible from their problem areas and add it elsewhere. Unfortunately, fat must be stored somewhere so if the cells are not distributed evenly, then it can you may see fat being stored all in one area leaving you with more problems than before.
What does a good BBL consist of?
The goal of liposuction is trying to get an even distribution of fat cells. Therefore, if you gain a pound, you gain it evenly over the entire body. Dr. Perry looks to get the same concentration of fat cells in the back, waist, and hips, to achieve the smooth curve patients desire. This is a more full-proof solution, because if you gain weight you may become wider but the curve will be intact because the concentration is the same. This also works the same if you lose weight. Now, when a patient needs a fat transfer to achieve a BBL, we are increasing the concentration of fat cells in the buttocks. This will, therefore, make it the new “problem area”. This fat transfer will make it the place that gains weight first and loses weight last which is actually the goal in this procedure.
