Brazilian Butt Lift- Buttock Augmentation – Butt Enhancement

Brazilian Butt Lift aka BBL is a procedure that has recently become popular due to social media. BBL is technically a Liposculpture in which fat transfer is done to the buttocks. Social media trends by Popular celebrities have resulted in ever-increasing inquiries for this procedure. It enhances the backside thereby giving a balance to the profile. Other options for buttock augmentation are silicone implants or fillers. The fillers however are temporary and need to be redone to maintain results. Silicone implants offer permanent enhancement and are a good alternative for people with less body fat to spare for fat transfer.

The foremost component of BBL is liposuction which removes excess fat from the tummy, waist, thighs, and back. This creates negative spaces and the suctioned fat is then processed and injected in the buttock area and hip dips to create positive spaces on the profile view.

Typically 300 to 900 cc of fat may be injected on each side depending upon the individual patient's characterizes and expectations. However one has to remember one cannot fill a glass to more than its maximum capacity, and in case you desire further enhancement the procedure needs to be carried out in stages so that the transferred fat does not get strangulated due to overzealous filling.
