Do you want a taut, sculpted body with curves for days? Your beach-worthy body is closer than ever with the revolutionary Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). More than merely buttocks augmentation, this procedure brings balance, tone, and volume to your entire physique. At Restore SD Plastic Surgery in San Diego, CA, we are proud to offer this transformative body contouring solution to our patients.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The BBL is an innovative fat-grafting procedure that removes unwanted fat from one region of the body to inject into the buttocks later. The dual-acting win-win technique enhances the body by slimming and toning in one area while plumping and firming the backside.
Healthy Living Often Isn’t Enough
Eating a nutritious diet, working out, and leading a healthy lifestyle often isn’t enough to reach your body goals. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. Millions of people struggle to achieve the look they want without luck.
When unwanted, stubborn fat covers the natural curvature and musculature of the body, it makes it look less fit than it is. Lies this fat tell about the body can negatively influence the way an individual feels about themselves and reduce self-confidence.
Subcutaneous fat or stubborn fat deposits are genetically determined and won’t go away with diet and exercise. DNA also plays a role in the size and shape of the buttocks. A large, round, and perky backside isn’t in most people’s genetic cards.
BBL to the Rescue
Understanding the limitations of diet and exercise is the first step you can take toward self-improvement. Patients are often reassured to learn they are doing everything right in their routine but hereditary factors are preventing optimal results.
With BBL, the body you want is available. We remove stubborn fat pockets to reveal a sleek and shapely form while lifting, firming, and volumizing the buttocks. Results are so natural that no one will expect you aren’t rocking what nature gave you.
How Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Work?
The BBL is a two-part, outpatient surgical body sculpting process: SAFELipo™ and augmentation. During your procedure, your expert Restore SD surgeon collects fat through SAFELipo™ liposuction from the region of your choice. You can choose to harvest fat from various areas of the body, including the:
After removal, the harvested fat is purified and sterilized. After this cleansing process, your Restore SD surgeon uses a small round tube to inject layers of fat into the buttocks. Restore SD surgeons use extraordinary skill when placing the layers to define and shape the backside gorgeously.
Using the process of fat-grafting for your augmentation procedure ensures that the injected cells create their own natural blood supply and integrate into your body seamlessly. Through the great technological strides made in recent years, patients can expect 60% to 70% of grafted fat to survive the transfer process. You’ll enjoy long-lasting aesthetic enhancements.
Why Should I Consider a Brazilian Butt Lift?
This prestigious procedure isn’t for everyone, but if you are looking for the best all-in-one bodily enhancement, it could be right for you. Below we look at the top reasons why you should consider a BBL.
It’s a Total Body Transformation
If you’re dreaming of a bigger, more voluptuous backside and have some extra fat to spare, this treatment is the ideal choice. Sometimes fat lurking in specific areas of the body makes the figure look less balanced than it could be.
Stubborn fat on the abdomen and flanks prevent the natural curve from flowing from the waist downward. Removing this fat for buttock augmentation is the perfect solution to refine the body’s overall shape. When this is the position you’re in, this procedure brings a slimmer definition and a better tone with your bigger backside.
Your Clothes Will Fit Better
Jeans, swimwear, formal attire—no problem. After getting the BBL, you’ll spend a lot less time trying on clothes because they will finally fit your body. One reason this procedure is so popular among patients worldwide is because of how flattering it looks. Clothed or unclothed, you’ll have the same, stunning results.
It Poses Fewer Risks than Alternative Procedures
Before this groundbreaking fat-grafting treatment took the world by storm, the only options for enhancing the backside were implants and injectables. Although these methods are still commonly used today, many patients prefer the lower-risk BBL treatment. Putting an implant or foreign agent in the body creates the risk for rejection or allergic reaction. Using your own fat eliminates the possibility of these risks.
It Looks Natural
At Restore SD, we specialize in providing the most natural-looking results. Although your body will attract attention after the BBL, it will be for all the right reasons. In the hands of Dr. Douglas and Dr. Gallus, you receive world-class care and impeccable cosmetic improvements.
It Feels Like the Real Thing
The BBL feels like the real thing because it is. Using harvested fat for your buttock augmentation procedure leaves you feeling and looking completely natural. All the cells and tissues are your own.
It’s a Confidence Boost
Spending countless hours exercising and regulating your diet and lifestyle without results is emotionally and physically taxing. When you’ve tried everything short of surgery without success, you owe it to yourself to find options that work. The BBL is the answer you’ve been looking for to level up. This confidence-boosting procedure has already changed thousands of lives for the better.
Results are Immediate and Permanent
You don’t have to wait to see results with the BBL. You’ll see a difference in the shape of your body immediately and results only get better with time. With an exceptionally high fat-cell retention rate, you’ll also enjoy benefits for years to come.
You Can Combine It With Other Procedures
Many of our patients pair the BBL with other body contouring procedures. Whether you want a breast enhancement surgery, liposuction, face or body lift, or any other surgery, we work with you to find the combination that meets your cosmetic goals.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you want a natural way to enhance your backside, the BBL could be for you. Each body is unique, and at Restore SD, we believe that everyone deserves to look and feel their best. Many of our patients come to us when they want to remove extra fat while enhancing flattened buttocks or hips.
Ideal candidates are at a healthy weight. They do not have any significant health issues that could interfere with the procedure or healing. The best candidates do not have a history of blood clotting problems like DVT or PE, do not take blood-thinning medications, and do not use nicotine products.
How Do I Prepare for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Preparing for a BBL is as much mental as it is physical. Below are a few ways you can prepare yourself for your operation. We provide further information to you at your consultation.
Educating yourself on the procedure is one of the best ways to prepare. If you know anyone who has already had a BBL surgery, discussing their experience is a fantastic way to glean insight into the experience. Reading information through trusted medical resources is another way to learn as much as you can before your procedure.
Stop Using Nicotine Products
Our goal is to deliver the safest results possible to our patients; therefore, we cannot offer the BBL surgery to active nicotine users. Those who use nicotine products must abstain from using them for eight weeks before the BBL procedure.
Tobacco and other nicotine products prevent wounds from healing, which can complicate your procedure. Fat necrosis, infection, and prolonged incision healing are more likely when a patient uses nicotine. Patients must commit to staying off nicotine products for at least four weeks after their operation.
Schedule Rest and Support Time
You aren’t permitted to drive after receiving the BBL treatment because we use general anesthesia during the procedure. Please arrange for a friend or family member to escort you home after your appointment. We recommend finding a trusted friend or loved one who can stay with you the night of your surgery and for the one or two days following.
You also must clear your schedule for one or two weeks after the operation to rest and nurture your body. The time you’ll need away from work depends on your job and how you are feeling. Schedule a consultation with us to learn more about the potential downtime from BBL.
When planning your BBL surgery, it’s crucial to remember that it’s not recommended to fly or drive long distances while you are healing. Give yourself enough time to relax after the operation. Your doctor will discuss your specific rest period and activity restrictions with you in person.
Discuss all immediate travel plans with your surgeon before and after your surgery to receive approval. Only your Restore SD surgeons can advise you on the best course of action to take if traveling is unavoidable shortly after surgery.
Diabetes Patients Must Regulate HgA1C
Patients with diabetes are still eligible for the BBL procedure but must make sure that their HgA1C is stabilized. Diabetes can pose a risk for prolonged incision healing and infection. These risks are mitigated when patients work with doctors and surgeons to prevent them. If HgA1C poses a risk, your surgeon may postpone your procedure until it’s under control.
What Happens at My Consultation?
Your BBL consultation with us is the first crucial step toward your new body and life. During your meeting, your Restore SD surgeon performs a thorough physical examination, reviews your medical history, and discusses any medications you are taking.
Together you’ll review your aesthetic goals and how to achieve them. Your surgeon photographs you with a specialty Vectra 3D imaging system to view while presenting your treatment options. Using advanced Canfield software, your surgeon shows you the results your surgery could produce. This system allows you to visualize your procedure beforehand and to adjust the results where desired.
Why Should I Choose Restore SD Plastic Surgery for a BBL?
Do you want a surgeon who takes the time to listen and get to know you and your goals? If so, Restore SD is the right option for you. Our patients receive first-class care from surgeons with unparalleled credentials in the industry.
Experience and expertise matter when choosing a BBL provider.
