Ideal Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates
People from the metro Atlanta area including Marietta considering the Brazilian butt lift get the best of both worlds with this procedure. It slims other areas using liposuction and adds volume to the buttocks for an hourglass shape. An ideal candidate for a BBL has:
- Excellent skin elasticity in the buttocks area
- Enough fatty tissue available for liposuction
- Realistic expectations of the fat transfer
As with all elective surgeries, patients should be nonsmokers in good overall health with realistic expectations from the procedure.
Understanding Your Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
A Brazilian butt lift begins with harvesting fat from an area of the body where it’s unwanted using liposuction, which requires a few tiny incisions. After the fat is processed to remove impurities, Dr. Yalif re-injects it into the buttocks with a special syringe, layering the fat to produce optimal results. This process is referred to as fat transfer, and can be used for other areas of the body as well. Many patients choose a Brazilian butt lift because they want a natural look and feel, and do not want silicone implants. Dr. Yalif typically uses more fat than the patient needs for their desired look to account for the reabsorption of some of the fat.
Dr. Yalif performs BBL surgery using general anesthesia at a fully accredited surgical facility. The procedure can take several hours, especially if he performs liposuction on multiple areas of the body. It’s typically an outpatient procedure, meaning patients return home on the day of surgery.
Dr. Yalif creates a customized surgical plan based on your cosmetic goals and the physical exam he performs during your consultation. It’s important to know that the Brazilian butt lift is a different procedure than a butt lift, which Dr. Yalif offers for patients with sagging buttocks skin.
How Does a BBL Differ From a Non-Surgical Butt Lift?
A BBL enhances the buttocks with the patient’s own fat collected with liposuction surgery. A non-surgical butt lift shapes the buttocks with Sculptra Aesthetic©, an injectable filler that contains poly-L-lactic acid and stimulates collagen production. It is a good option for patients who do not have enough excess fat for a BBL.
