Understanding the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure With Wendell Perry, MD

For many years now, the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure has continued to gain popularity across the globe, and especially here at Wendell Perry, MD’s plastic surgery practice located in Alexandria and Woodbridge, VA, and Rockville, MD. This particular procedure focuses on improving the size, shape, and contour of the buttocks, using your own fat for an incredibly natural result. But what exactly does it entail? What are the benefits of Brazilian Butt Lift, and how does the recovery process look like?

What Is Brazilian Butt Lift?

At its core, the Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL for short, is a form of buttock augmentation that uses the candidate’s own body fat to enhance the appearance of the butt. The procedure starts with liposuction in areas with excess fat, such as the hips, thighs, or abdomen. This fat is then purified and subsequently re-injected into the buttocks.

Why Choose Brazilian Butt Lift?

There are numerous benefits of Brazilian Butt Lift that make it a sought-after procedure. Not only does it improve the lower body contour, but it also enhances the upper body’s shape. Health risks from implants are eliminated as your own body fat is used, also leading to the correction of sagging or asymmetrical buttocks. This technique usually offers results that are more natural-looking compared to other augmentation options, naturally enhancing your figure and offering an improved self-image.

What to Expect After the Procedure?

BBL recovery is an essential part of achieving the best possible results. Weeks 1 to 2 of BBL recovery should be dedicated to rest, hydration, and getting good nutrition. By week 3, most patients can go back to a sedentary job but cannot sit directly on their buttocks for prolonged periods. Rigorous physical activities should be avoided until you’re fully recovered.

BBL Recovery Tips

  • Dedicated rest time: It’s important to take enough dedication to rest during the initial weeks of recovery.
  • Use of donut pillow: To avoid applying direct pressure on the buttocks.
  • Hydrating and eating healthily: Proper nutrition is key for your body to rebuff and for the newly transferred fat cells to survive.
  • Follow the surgeon’s advice: Each recovery process is unique, so always follow your surgeon’s advice and instructions.

Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Right for Me?

A BBL is right for you if you desire more shapely, fuller buttocks and are in good overall health. Candidates for a BBL may have lost volume in their buttocks due to weight loss, aging, or genetics and are looking to enhance their appearance. Ideal candidates for a BBL have enough excess fat in other areas of their body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, which can be used for fat grafting to the buttocks, providing both contouring and augmentation. Additionally, they should have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure and be willing to follow post-operative care instructions for optimal results.
