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 and preferences and matches you with the best Brazilian butt lift surgeon in Turkey. 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 fat 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 takes 6 to 8 weeks.

Things You Should Do Before Surgery

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin 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 are 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 to 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.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) 

Is BBL Painful?

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

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 fail.

How Long Do the BBL Results Last?

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

Does BBL Cost Abroad Affordable?

Yes, the procedure will be more affordable abroad and cost less in popular medical tourism locations like Turkey. But some factors affect the BBL surgery cost, like the clinics' location, the surgeon's experience, and the technique used.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    I have decided to wait and see the results first before sending my review to flymedi. My healing process was slow but good. The team contacted me to see how I am doing. I can say the attention they show is really professional. Everything went smoothly in Istanbul. I wish the staff speak English a little better. That would make it easier for me but everybody was kind and attentive. Overall they did a good job. Thanks

    I am so grateful Angela was my consultant. Later she wasn't just a consultant but she became a friend. I had so many questions and she replied to all of them with patience. She was present all the time! I had a liposuction procedure. My surgeon and the medical team welcomed me so warmly. Everybody was so professional. They pick me up from the airport with a private driver, later Can was my translator and I have the support of a lot of kind people. The nurses Jemeilla, Baisha made the time after surgery so easy. Later, i was transferred to a hotel, and they kept in touch with me through the healing process. I appreciate it all. It was a great experience.

He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too.

    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

    I had a wonderful experience with, 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!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.

    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 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.
