The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure
The Brazilian Butt Lift (also referred to as a “BBL” plastic surgery procedure) removes fat from different areas of the body and transfers it to the buttocks. This process re-shapes the buttocks and adds volume and may create a more sensual body profile and perkier buttocks.The Brazilian Butt Lift replaces the older, antiquated procedure of placing silicone buttock implants (which presented numerous complications from having a foreign body in the buttock). Grafting fat from various places in the body into the buttocks is a much better long-term solution as once the fat has successfully taken, it tends to stay there permanently the body will not treat it as foreign.
Optimal candidates for this procedure may have one or more of the following:
- a butt or gluteal area that is proportionally small to overall frame
- saggy buttocks (as a result of weight loss or age)
- buttocks that differ in size and or shape
- a flat butt
- buttocks that are flat or lack volume due to weightloss surgery (such as gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, gastric baloon)
- A bmi (body mass index) under 29, yet over 22
During the procedure, your Brazilian Butt Lift surgeon Dr. Brian Coan will first use liposuction to carefully remove unwanted fat from the arms, hips, thighs, or abdomen. The removed fat is then processed and strategically placed into different areas and parts of the buttocks. The ultimate goal is to create a rounder, more defined rear end. To be a potential patient, you should have some pockets of fat somewhere on your body. Dr. Coan uses his expertise to achieve the long-lasting and natural-looking results.
