BBL Revision

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) can help you achieve your dream body, but sometimes the results are not what you expected. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wendell Perry offers many revision procedures, including the BBL revision, to correct unsatisfactory results from other surgeons and help you feel more confident in your body.

What is BBL Revision?

BBL revision or Brazilian butt lift revision is a plastic surgery procedure that addresses complications or poor results from a previous BBL procedure. Potential complications may include rippling or deep grooves from improper fat grafting, lumps, asymmetry, or irregular contouring. The body can also absorb too much fat, resulting in smaller buttocks than desired. Butt augmentation with implants can also be corrected if the implant was poorly placed and has “flipped” or become visible through the skin.

Who is a Candidate for BBL Revision?

The best candidates for a BBL revision are healthy adults with no underlying medical problems. Patients must have enough excess fat that can be transferred to the buttocks. If you are unhappy with the results of your previous Brazilian butt lift procedure, we encourage you to schedule a consultation at our office.

About the BBL Revision Procedure

BBL revision is a similar procedure to the standard BBL surgery. First, liposuction will be used to remove excess fat cells from another area of the body like the stomach, thighs, or waistline. Next, the harvested fat cells will be carefully injected into the buttocks to increase their size and create a smooth, even contour.

Recovery from BBL Revision

After Brazilian butt lift revision, it is necessary to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for eight weeks. Pressure from sitting could kill the transferred fat cells, which will not create optimal results. Strenuous activities should be avoided for about four weeks, but most patients can return to work and light daily activities after 1-2 weeks. Although you might have some pain the first few days (typically in the area where liposuction was received), it can be easily alleviated with pain medications. Final results can be seen after 2-3 months.

Schedule a Consultation

Dr. Perry’s goal is to help his patients feel more confident in their appearances and we are pleased to offer customized treatment plans that consider all your needs and treatment goals. If you are bothered by the previous results of a BBL procedure, we encourage you to schedule a consultation for BBL revision at one of our three offices in Virginia and Maryland.
