A Brazilian butt lift, also known as a BBL, is a type of cosmetic surgery that can give you a curvy backside. This procedure uses your own fat to enlarge and enhance your butt. BBLs are becoming increasingly popular as women seek ways to improve their appearance. If you’re thinking about getting a Brazilian Butt Lift, here’s what you need to know.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
Brazilian Butt Lifts involve transferring fat from other parts of your body to your buttocks. This fat is usually taken from the abdomen, hips, or thighs. The fat is then injected into the buttocks to create a more voluptuous appearance. Brazilian Butt Lifts can be performed using either local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Local anesthesia numbs the area around the incisions, while general anesthesia puts you to sleep during the surgery. BBLs are usually outpatient procedures, which means you won’t have to stay in the hospital overnight. However, you will need someone to drive you home after the surgery. BBLs typically take two to three hours to complete.
Recovery from a BBL
After a Brazilian butt lift, you can expect some swelling and bruising. You may also feel some pain and tenderness in the incision sites. These side effects should resolve within a few weeks. Brazilian butt lifts are considered safe procedures, but like any surgery, there are risks involved. These risks include infection, bleeding, and blood clots. Be sure to talk to your doctor about these risks before having a BBL.
