Fast becoming the leading choice for butt augmentation and reshaping, Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery, (sometimes known as BBL surgery), lifts and enhances your buttocks.
If you desire to have a butt and shape that would rival Kim Kardashian, then a Brazilian Butt Lift can help you add shape and create a silhouette with a fuller, rounder derrière.
- A Brazilian Butt Lift enhance and contour your buttocks
- The surgery involves removing fat from other areas of your body where it’s more plentiful (your hips, thighs, tummy, love handles or lower back) using liposuction.
- The excess fat is then purified and re-injected back into your buttocks to enhance your shape and fullness. As BBL surgery requires the use of liposuction, you are ultimately receiving two procedures in one.
- A butt lift is often part of a total body lift and is a common surgery after significant weight loss
Brazilian Butt Lift surgery is performed in hospital under general anaesthesia and takes 2 to 4 hours.
An abdominal binder (a broad elastic band) should be worn continuously for 2 to 6 weeks during your recovery. The binder provides extra comfort and support for your body, as you heal.
If having a lift at the same time, a compression girdle is required in addition to binder.
Your expected recovery time can vary, with most patients able to return back to work within 2 to 4 weeks. Driving may be resumed when stomping your feet does not cause any abdominal pain.
Physical exercise, manual labour and other strenuous activities cannot be undertaken for at least 4-6 weeks.
Most patients see final results at 12 months when the scar has matured.
Dr Tim will be able to give you recovery estimates for your surgery during your consultation.
To decrease the amount of overall recovery time and cost of surgery, many patients will combine cosmetic procedures for a more dramatic result.
Typical complementary procedure choices for a Brazilian Butt Lift include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or entire body lift. Dr Tim will help you choose which procedures are best for your needs and will help you customise those procedures to create optimal results.
