Details

Commonly known by its acronym BBL, the Brazilian Butt Lift is one of the most popular fat grafting operations in the world. What makes this procedure more famous is that it comes with natural-looking results. BBL can help overcome the effects of genetics by reshaping the buttocks and its surrounding areas. Instead of using artificial implants (just like in the Butt Implant surgery), BBL improves the shape and size of buttocks by only using fat tissue glands which are transferred from other body parts. Surgeons usually extract these fat tissues from the patient’s abdomen, flanks (love handles), hips, thighs, bra-roll area, lower back, et cetera. The process used to extract fat tissues is known as Liposuction.


Who Is This For?

  • Individuals with good overall health
  • Individuals with disproportionate, flat, asymmetrical or saggy buttocks
  • Individuals with enough fat deposit in their body available for a fat graft

Treatment Duration

2-3 hours.

Potential Risks & Side Effects

  • Infection
  • Body rejection
  • Bruising
  •  Swelling
  • Numbness
  • Fat embolism
  • Scarring

Recovery Time

  • The average BBL recovery time ranges between two to six weeks
  • A compression garment is worn up to 6 weeks after the surgery
  • Drains are removed 2-3 days after the surgery
  • Postoperative swelling can persist for up to 3 months
  • Patients need to avoid sitting on the buttocks for at least two weeks
  • Patients generally return to work in about 10-14 days after the procedure

Success Rate: 90-95%.

Alternative Treatments

How Does it Work?

You can consider Brazilian Butt Lift as a 2 in 1 surgery. Because you will get rid of the excess fat that you don’t want to have in your body, and it will be transferred to an area which you want to be bigger.

For your online consultation, we will kindly ask you to send your photos as shown in the Photography Guide down below, so we can evaluate your case.

 

What Does Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Involve?

Each and every BBL procedure is tailored to suit every individual’s needs, preferences and the clinic’s best practices. Your first consultation will be done online, and when you arrive at the clinic, you will have your final consultation which will be done face-to-face between you and your surgeon. When you have both gone through the details of BBL, your surgeon will begin to prepare you for the procedure.

In most cases, the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure has four main stages –which are articulated below

    1. Taking the Anesthesia

Before the surgery begins, your surgeon will put you under general anesthesia so that you do not feel any sort of pain or discomfort during the procedure. Some surgeons prefer to give the patient local instead of general anesthesia, but patients can also decide the type of anesthesia they want.

    2. Extraction of Fat Cells

After you are anesthetized, your surgeon will make small incisions and extract the fat cells using a medical tube known as the cannula. 

    3. Processing of fat

Once the fat has been extracted, the surgeon will carefully purify it using drainage and centrifugation.

    4. Injecting the fat

After the purification is done, the oil will be transferred into your buttocks using small injections at various depths.


What to Expect After the BBL Procedure

  • When you wake up, you will probably be feeling tired, drowsy, and disoriented.
  • When you are discharged from the clinic, you will need someone to accompany you.
  • We also recommend that you have someone – at home – who will help you for a couple of days after the surgery.
  • There is a high chance of experiencing bruising and swelling in the donor areas.
  • Your surgeon will prescribe medication for you –the meds should be taken according to the surgeon’s instructions.
  • Although this differs from one patient to the other, some patients can start standing and walking as early as two days after the procedure. Short distance walks are recommended because they help with constipation.
  • You are expected to wear the compression garment for eight weeks so as to ensure swift and proper healing in the areas where liposuction was performed.
  • You should always sit on a cushion or pillow for the first eight weeks after the procedure. We also recommend that you do not sit for a long period of time.
  • Once the fat cells have been stabilized, you can then begin to do your normal activities. This usually take 6 to 8 weeks.

 

Things You Should Do Before Surgery

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirins and any other meds associated with blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.
  • Patients advised to avoid smoking 24 hours before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So you should not take in anything alcoholic 24 hours prior surgery.
  • If you are taking meds for chronic or acute diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, you should inform your surgeon before the surgery commences.


FAQ:

Is BBL Painful?

Patients do not feel any sort of pain during the procedure because they are given anesthesia, but there might be post-surgery pain or soreness. Surgeons usually prescribe medicines that relieves one from any achings.

Whose Fat is Used for BBL?

The patient’s own fat cells are used. Using someone else’s fat may cause an infection and the procedure may dismally fail.

How Long Do the BBL Results Last?

As long as the patient maintains a healthy and stable body weight, the BBL results can for more 15 years.

    I was not sure where to go. I wanted a sculpting surgery. I thought of going to USA but it was 4 times the price. I started research and i thought about Turkey. When i contacted flymedi, my case was taken by yusuf. Great communication on whatsapp, Driver was waiting for me when i arrived. Surgery went well; transfer was organised. Follow up was as expected. I just did the final control examination and tomorrow is my flight back home The issue was the language barrier, but other than that things went great. If i have another procedure in the future i will be considering flymedi.

    I had a surgery in Istanbul. Nadia from flymedi helped me from the start. She helped me find the right clinic for me and then she communicated with them for me throughout. She even kept in touch with me after my surgery and kept asking me if I was happy with my results and was feeling well. I’m so glad I had Nadia in the progress who I always could contact and ask any questions that I had. I can definitely recommend using flymedi.

    I had a wonderful experience with flymedi.com, especially with agent Mustafa who helped me to get a surgeon last minute. The surgeon was absolutely wonderful and did a great job. From the hotel to the hospital good arrangements were made for me even though it was so last minute that I sought his help. He was able to communicate with me 24/7 and was very prompt. Just a great experience from start to finish. I highly recommend flymedi and staff for their professionalism and of course Mustafa for being present every time I needed his help. Thank you so very much!

    Great services!I decided to get brazilian butt lift surgery abroad and found Flymedi on Google search. The team seemed pretty nice and decided to get my surgery there. I had a personal consultant Mustafa which arranged the whole progress for me. I only bought the tickets and everything went so fast. Now my buttocks are healed and I’m thinking about getting septorhinoplasty surgery in flymedi. I like their passion on their work
