The Natural Results of BBL Contouring and Reshaping
A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) has come to be associated with a large and extra curvy Kim Kardashian-style backside. However, the truth is, a BBL can have very moderate, natural-looking results. By redistributing fat deposits, contouring and reshaping the silhouette, a BBL at the Philadelphia area’s Chapin Aesthetics can give your backside a boost that not only complements your figure but looks natural, too. Read on to find out more about how BBL surgery works and what it can do for you.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for BBL Surgery?
In 2018, the Brazilian Butt Lift was the third most researched surgical cosmetic treatment. More and more women are developing an interest in a fuller and more even-looking backside. A Brazilian Butt Lift is ideal for women who want to relocate fat from areas like the abdomen, lower back, and thighs.
That isn’t to say women who don’t have much-unwanted fat aren’t eligible candidates for a BBL. Thinner women may be at risk to re-metabolize the fat transfer quicker, but a few lifestyle changes can easily make a BBL work for thin women, too. In this case, it’s important to take in more fat, avoid smoking, and exercise to encourage fat to stay in place.
How Does BBL Surgery Work?
Generally, fat is removed from unwanted areas and is then re-deposited into the buttocks. This is excellent for women who feel as though their buttocks are too flat, but have unwanted fat around the waistline, back, and thighs. The BBL procedure actually focuses more on reshaping and re-contouring the shape of the body by displacing fat and putting it where it is most wanted.
After about six to eight weeks, the fat should metabolize. This means some may move around but most of it should permanently stay in place. You can expect your results to last for years with proper diet and exercise.
Will the Results of a BBL Be Natural or Dramatic?
Because a BBL is a fat redistribution procedure, the results are much more natural than with other augmentation surgeries. With celebrities like Kim Kardashian showing off very curvaceous backsides, the everyday suburban mom may find this entire procedure to be too dramatic.
The truth is, you can expect very natural results with a BBL – whether you have lots of extra fat to redistribute or not. By meeting with your surgeon for a consultation first, you can determine the amount of volume you feel comfortable adding to your backside. Plus, with advanced 3D technology, your surgeon can help you see exactly what your new, balanced silhouette will look like afterward.
How Long Will the Results of a BBL Last?
Though the initial results will be visible in about six to eight weeks, it can take about six months for the body to completely heal from the procedure and for swelling to go away entirely. The results should be permanent and can last for years to come. It could be possible for some of the volume to decrease over an extended period of time, but with proper diet and exercise, the fat redistribution should be permanent for the most part.
