The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a surgical procedure invented by Ivo Pitanguy from Brazil. The surgery combines liposuction to remove fat from one part of the body and an injection to transplant the fat into the buttocks. The goal of BBL is to create a fuller, more lifted rear end.
Dr. Ku performs the Brazilian Butt Lift in three stages: liposuction, purification, and injection. During liposuction, Dr. Ku administers local anesthesia and creates an incision. Through the incision, he loosens body fat and then uses a vacuum-like instrument to remove it.
Then, a technician separates the fat from other substances using centrifugation to purify it. The technician prepares only the best fat cells for reinjection for the tightest results. Then, Dr. Ku injects the purified fat into the butt through hundreds of tiny injection sites.
Women who want to fill out their butt while simultaneously trimming fat in another area may find a BBL the answer to their wishes. Women who are considering a BBL should also:
The safety and success rate of Brazilian Butt Lifts is directly related to the expertise of the surgeon performing them. Dr. Ku has extensive plastic surgery experience and uses only the safest techniques and instruments available.
Recovery is relatively fast, requiring downtime of only about 10-14 days. You may experience temporary side effects such as pain, swelling, bruising, and infection for the first week.
Results from the procedure are permanent. About 60% of the transplanted fat should stay in its new place, while the rest gets flushed out of your system.
The transplanted fat acts just like fat anywhere else in your body. Weight fluctuations do affect it, so you should plan to maintain your current weight. For example, weight loss may cause the fat cells in your bottom to shrink.
