Many believe in what they see. Always, celebrities have taken chances to enhance their looks by the technologies in the market. Some work excellently, while some need improvement. Brazilian Butt Lift is one of such transformation procedures that is the safest and easiest amongst all. Yet, it is invariably better to know more about it from medical practitioners. Dr Shukla is a Medical Director of ShineMD Medspa & Liposuction Center. In this article he will answer top questions about Brazilian Butt lifts.
Hence, today, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) by thorough research and tried to answer them in layman’s words.
Let us check them out:-
1. What exactly is Brazilian Butt Lift?
The BBL (Brazilian Butt lift) refers to the procedure performed to enhance the overall profile, including the size and shape of the Buttocks. In this, a BBL medical practitioner performs liposuction on the specific fat-rich areas, and the fat is reinjected in particular butt areas. It gives the preferred bouncy appeal to the buttocks. It, therefore, improves the impression of the overall lower body.
2. Which part of the body can the medical practitioner take the fat from?
The medical practitioner, while performing the liposuction, takes the fat from the specific body parts, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, or neck. These parts are stubborn in losing fat through a healthy diet and exercise. Hence, removing the subcutaneous layer (just under the skin) will not harm. The medical practitioner will generally prefer thighs and abdomen for it. The procedure performed is highly safe, and called VASER HD Liposuction to obtain optimum results.
3. How much time does it take for the entire procedure?
The entire procedure includes the combinations of several steps. At first, the medical practitioner gives the anaesthesia (or local anaesthesia) to numb the parts, then liposuction at different areas to take out the required fat and thereby transferring it to the buttocks. Besides, it includes other complicated procedures like stitching and dressing. So, the timing will totally depend on the body type, and techniques used by a medical practitioner. Usually, the entire procedure will consume around two to four hours.
4. How much time does it take to recover from the procedure?
The recovery time is entirely dependent upon the body. It usually takes a week to resume the basic activities that are non-strenuous. But if you want to resume your duties and other outdoor activities, the minimum time required by the body is over 3-4 weeks. It is recommended to take full-body rest until eight to nine days, then start mild exercises. For the majority, it might take six to eight weeks to return to their usual life. The BBL procedure includes the transfer of fat which is under the skin, making the operated body parts vulnerable during toilsome activities.
In brief, if you want to have an idea of recovering time, consider the longest one, i.e., nearly seven weeks. To fasten the recovery process, sit on the soft and fluffy cushions and mattresses avoiding hard surfaces.
5. Does BBL permanently stay?
Sometimes the body absorbs the fat that a medical practitioner injects into the buttocks during the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. It means that it acts as the soluble fat, and the body utilizes it to convert into energy and this process can inevitably subsist for around 5 to 6 months. The remaining injected fat accumulates there, which further becomes permanent. However, there is a catch, you should not lose or gain considerable weight for permanent results thereafter. Because it will degenerate the shape and size you desired to maintain after the BBL procedure. You need to follow the recommended diet and butt-specific exercises for achieving the desired results. Once the fat survives in the butt for a longer time, more will be the possibility for permanent results.
6. How safe is BBL?
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is a safe procedure; you need to follow every guideline that your medical practitioner consults. As with many surgical procedures, the Brazilian Butt lift procedure has some usual risks of bleeding and infection. You should prefer a board-certified medical practitioner who performs BBL procedures and is well-versed with the different techniques involved in it. Dr. Shukla is a BBL-specific specialist with considerable experience in the field. The more experienced your surgical specialist is, the safer your procedure will be.
Another significant factor is aftercare which significantly affects the safety factor. It is vital to follow the guidelines provided by your specialist and instantly consult if you feel any discomfort.
7. What precautions to take after the Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?
You should follow all the prescribed instructions to avoid any possible complications. Like strictly follow the diet advised by the BBL medical practitioner so that you can recover from this quickly. Following the specific diet plan expedites the recuperation process. Besides, you should avoid strenuous exercises and activities for at least three weeks or more after consulting your doctor. Also, the stretching or squatting exercises that strain buttocks should be avoided for a month or so. It will also reduce the risk of any potential injury, such as excess bleeding. Besides, avoid smoking and drinking as these might reduce blood flow in the body, extending the recovering period.
Further, wearing the compression assisting garments as directed by your BBL medical practitioner. You should avoid direct sitting on your buttocks and try to sleep sideways for around three weeks or as directed by the doctor.
8. Does one need to gain or lose weight before the Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
This question has different answers depending on the specific person. However, you should gain approximately two Kilograms more than your weight before opting the procedure. After Brazilian Butt procedure, you will eat healthy food and be precautious, resulting in losing some weight. Remember that after your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, you need to maintain the same weight for permanent results.
9. Can one resume a normal workout after a BBL surgery?
Exercising is not recommended for the first week, as this proves to be a vital period for recovery. Therefore, you can start light exercises like walking fast, mild calisthenics, etc. Hence, it will increase the mobility of your muscles and improve the stretching of BBL procedure-affected skin of the buttocks. Then, nearly after four weeks, you can resume doing cardio and other heart-rate increasing ones. Hence, it will maintain the results of BBL and can also enhance them.
Workout is an intrinsic part of the lifestyle to maintain your body, and you just need to be wary in starting days.
10. How soon can I go to the office after a BBL surgery?
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure demands strict care for at least three weeks. If you want to resume your office or other outdoor work, let your body completely recover from the wear and tear of the procedure. You can also ask your specific doctor if there is an urgency to attend office. Otherwise, we would not recommend you resuming the work before three weeks. Or if you want to, you can take a comfy soft pillow to put it on your office chair while avoiding the other chairs and hard surfaces.
Remember the more you will be wary, the more effective results you can achieve.
11. How do I know if I am a good candidate for BBL procedure?
There are certain aspects that will determine whether you are suitable for BBL or not. You can choose BBL if you have that squashy butt. Another reason can be the significant weight loss, and your buttocks have shrunk, which is not what you desire. You are discontented with your overweight and cannot lose it with exhausting exercises and a bland diet. Or if you have an attractive upper body but unsatisfied with your lower body. People with loose skin and fluffy butts.
All the above ones are apt for Brazilian Butt Lift procedure to gain that firmness and shape, which they find appealing.
12. How much scarring will be there after BBL?
Opting for certified medical practitioners with significant experience will lead to minor scars that might not be noticeable. There are around 4mm scars that reside along the butt line and stomach lining of the skin. It noticeably hides the scars to a large extent.
