Female Buttock Augmentation with Fat (BBL)
Where can you take fat from for a BBL?
Simply put, fat for a BBL can be collected from any place you have fat. However not all fat is created equal and some areas have more and better quality fat for liposuction and fat transfer to the buttock. In general, the areas that offer the ideal amount and type of fat include the abdomen, flanks, hips and inner thighs. Secondary sites that can be used include the arms, bra-line, neck, and banana rolls (area beneath the buttock). Lower back fat may be used in some instances, but is often too fibrous and stringy to use.
How much fat is placed for a BBL?
The amount of fat transfer to the butt can vary based on the size of the patient, her goals and how much fat is available to collect. An average size woman wanting a small butt lift or added butt projection may only require 500 cc (~ 2 full cups) per side whereas an average size woman wanting significant fullness, butt projection and curvy hips may require 1500 cc or more per side.
How do I know if I have enough fat for a BBL?
If there is any question about having enough fat for a BBL procedure that will give you the look you want, it may be recommended that you allow yourself to gain some weight prior to your procedure. In these cases, often adding just 5-10 pounds will ensure you have enough high quality fat to collect and the results will meet the goals of your butt augmentation. Don’t worry about the extra weight- it will be removed with liposuction as fat is collected for your BBL fat transfer.
Does the fat from a BBL go away when I lose weight?
No. Any fat maintained after approximately six weeks following your Brazilian Butt Lift is permanent and will not be lost. However, the transferred fat will mimic the natural buttock fat meaning the fat cells can potentially shrink and expand as you lose or gain weight.
How is a BBL performed at SCULPT?
The areas for fat collection are identified and the curves of the body are mapped out prior to the procedure so you can see how the new shape of your body will look. Prior to fat removal, VASER liposuction is used to loosen up the fat cells and break them down into the perfect size and shape for fat transfer to the butt. Fat is then removed by liposuction and collected in a highly specialized container that allows for selection and separation of only the best and most healthy fat. This fat, considered the best of the best, is further processed to ensure the utmost quality and purity then transferred to buttock to create the desired look for your BBL. Following fat transfer specialized hi-definition liposuction is performed to further define and sculpt the curves created from the initial liposuction, fat collection and fat transfer.
Can other procedures be done at the same time as a BBL?
The BBL procedure can be performed alone, but is often combined with other female breast and body procedures including breast augmentation, breast lift and tummy tuck.
