What is a Brazilian butt lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as a BBL, is a cosmetic procedure that enlarges and enhances the shape of the buttocks. Rather than putting implants into the buttocks, this augmentation procedure is performed through fat transfer to the buttocks.
Excess fat is removed from various areas of the body and transferred to the buttocks to augment the volume and improve the shape (correct hip dips).
A BBL should not be confused with a buttock lift. The objective of a traditional buttock lift procedure is to tighten the buttocks by surgically removing excess skin. Whereas a BBL aims to enhance the shape, size, and appearance of the buttocks, by using the patient’s own body fat, usually obtained from donor areas, such as the hips and the waist.
Who is an ideal candidate for a BBL?
You are a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift if you:
- Have a disproportionately small buttock
- Want to enlarge the projection or overall contour of your buttock
- Have hip dips
- Want to improve the contour of your buttocks and waistline (hourglass shape)
- Have enough fat elsewhere in your body (abdomen or other regions that can be used to harvest fat)
What does a BBL in Montreal consist of?
A BBL is usually performed under general anesthesia.
A typical BBL procedure begins with the liposuction of fat deposits in the abdomen, lower back, thighs or other regions. Then, the excess fat from parts of your body is filtered and purified. Once the purification process is over, the fat cells are transferred into different areas of the buttock, to increase the volume, correct hip dips, and enhance the shape of the buttock.
