Brazilian butt lift is a popular procedure focusing on creating a rounder, firmer, and more defined appearance on the backside. 

Traditional butt lift procedures that use liposuction to harvest fat deposits from other body parts are not ideal for skinny patients. For such patients, skinny BBL is the best alternative. 

If you are skinny or have a low BMI and feel concerned about your body appearance and health, you may consider the procedure to enhance your backside look. 

This article explains what you need to know about skinny BBL. You will learn skinny BBL vs BBL know if you are suitable for skinny BBL, and the approximate skinny BBL costs. 

What is Skinny BBL?

Skinny BBL is a procedure that uses liposuction of more areas than a traditional BBL. One or more body areas will not have enough fat deposits to achieve butt enhancement. The doctors must perform liposuction on multiple sites to gather enough fat. 

Ideally, the amount of fat required for a successful BBL skinny depends on various factors like the surgeon’s technique, patients’ expectations, the anatomical shape, the amount of fat reserves in areas to be treated, and the anticipated level of fat survival. 

Who Can Have Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?

After consultations with a plastic surgeon, some patients have been told they are unsuitable for the traditional BBL. They are unsuitable for the procedure because they are too thin, do not have enough fat deposits to undergo the conventional BBL, or their BMI is not within the minimum range. 

If you were declared unsuitable for conventional BBL, you might wonder if you are suitable for the procedure. Here are factors that make a candidate eligible for the treatment: 

  • Skinny patients
  • Patients with a Skinny BBL BMI (less than 25)
  • Candidates who are too thin or too skinny for the traditional BBL
  • Must be in good physical health
  • Do not smoke
  • Patients with Skinny Legs

It is crucial noting that some patients may lack sufficient fat deposits across their whole body to support buttock enhancement. They may not be suitable if the patient is willing to gain weight to build enough fat reserves for the procedure. 

Skinny Bum Lift Surgery Duration

Most BBL procedures take between 1 to 3 hours to complete. However, the procedure may take longer depending on factors like the approach used by the surgeon and the patient’s expectations. Patients should choose the best skinny BBL surgeon to achieve the desired results. 

Skinny Buttocks Lift Side Effects

While Skinny BBL Turkey has shown high success rates, patients may report some side effects. They include: 

  • Infection on operated sites
  • Scarring during the skinny BBL recovery period
  • Pain on the operated parts
  • Lumps under the skin in the areas suctioned or injected
  • Skin loss in treated areas due to deep infection 
  • Fat embolism in the heart or lungs
  • Buttocks fail to take up grafted fat stores

To help minimize the side effects, patients must follow the surgeon’s guidelines before, during, and after Skinny BBL Turkey. 

Skinny BBL Procedure Recovery Time

Skinny BBL recovery time ranges between 2 and 6 weeks. To ensure a faster recovery timeline, the patient must wear a compression garment for up to 6 weeks after the surgery. For appealing results, the patient needs to: 

  • Avoid sitting on the buttocks for at least two weeks. 
  • Avoid sitting on hard surfaces.
  • Walk every hour.
  • Sleep on your stomach or side at bedtime.

Generally, 90% of patients return to work about two weeks after the surgery. 

Skinny Butt Lift Surgery Success Rate

Skinny BBL has a success rate of 90 - 95%. It is important to note that the results are often semi-permanent because the fat cells change over time. However, patients may respond differently, with some experiencing a permanent outcome following the procedure. 

Skinny BBL Alternative Treatment

If a skinny Brazilian Butt Lift is not ideal for you, alternative treatment options can include: 

  • Buttock implant
  • Collagen-stimulating injections/fillers
  • Skin lightening lasers

How is Skinny BBL Surgery Performed?

Here is the step-by-step overview of the procedure:

Step 1. Taking anesthesia: Before the surgery, your surgeon puts you under general anesthesia. 

Step 2. Extracting fat cells: The surgeon makes small incisions and extracts the fat cells using a medical tube. 

Step 3. Fat Processing: after the fat extraction, the surgeon purifies it using drainage and centrifugation. 

Step 4. Injecting the fat: The surgeon transfers the fat into the patient’s buttocks using small injections at various depths. 

What To Expect After Skinny BBL Treatment?

After the procedure, the patient may feel tired, exhausted, and disoriented. BBL skinny patients will need someone to escort them home after the procedure. You must have someone to help you for at least the first week after the process. 

What To Avoid Before Skinny BBL Surgery?

  • Avoid sunbathing for two weeks before the surgery. 
  • It would help if you quit smoking at least 2-weeks before the surgery 
  • Do not take aspirin-containing products or other medications that may contain blood thinners.

    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.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. 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. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    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.
