Brazilian Butt Lift
A BBL is a butt augmentation procedure that utilizes the actual fat from a patient to augment the buttocks area. In fact, a BBL addresses many issues that pertain to the buttocks area such as flat and/or sagging buttocks, a smaller buttocks area that a patient wants to augment,buttocks that are asymmetrical and buttocks that have changed their appearance because of massive weight loss on the part of the patient.
There is not one certain reason that a person wishes to undergo a BBL. Having said that, there are some common reasons that are shared by patients as a reason they wish to have the lift. One common reason is a desire to improve the shape of the buttocks as well as the curve of the hip.
When it comes to the final results, they should be long lasting without any need for any sort of follow-up procedure as long as the surgery is performed correctly. This includes the fat being harvested, processed and injected back into the body correctly.
It’s important for patients to note that some bruising and pain can be expected for a couple of weeks following the procedure. The bruising will fade but the swelling can last for several months while the body is healing and making the necessary changes to achieve the final results. Some loss of sensation can be expected as well but this is nothing that the patient needs to worry about in the long term. Other complications that might occur as a result of the surgery include stretch marks, numbness and pain. While any (or all) of these complications might not happen to a patient, it is best for a patient to contact their doctor if they have any of these post-surgery complications.
The price of a BBL varies across the country. The overall final price depends on the part of the country in which the patient lives. The average price for a BBL is $6500 but patients need to check with a surgeon in their area for more details. Insurance might pay for some of the procedure costs if an actual medical need can be shown for the Brazilian butt lift.
No matter what type of surgical procedure a patient is undergoing, they should take the time to consult with a board certified physician. Patients need to do their research and find an experienced and trained doctor to perform the lift. An experienced doctor will take the patient’s medical history into account during their pre-surgery examination. The examination is done in order to determine if the patient is indeed a viable BBL candidate. Once it is determined that the patient is a good candidate for a BBL, the doctor and patient can make sure their expectations are the same in order to achieve the desired BBL results.
