An increasing number of men and women are looking for ways to improve their figures with fat grafting. Most notably, there has been a considerable uptick in the number of BBLs (Brazilian butt lifts) performed in the U.S in recent years.
In 2020 alone, over 20,000 BBLs were performed.
If you’re thinking about a BBL (Brazilian butt lift), it’s a good idea to plan ahead so that you fully understand the procedure. Knowing what to expect before and after your BBL can help you better prepare for surgery and get exactly what you want from your results.
In addition to researching what BBLs are in detail, here are five more things to consider before heading into surgery.
5 Things to Consider Before Your Beverly Hills BBL
1. You need to have a bit of fat to spare for this surgery.
Most people will have enough excess fat on their bodies to qualify for a Brazilian butt lift Beverly Hills. However, in some cases, a patient may be extremely thin and won’t have a lot of fat to spare.
In this case, a mini Brazilian butt lift or “skinny BBL” can sometimes be performed. Otherwise, a different approach may need to be used to augment the size of the buttocks.
2. Brazilian butt lift before and after pictures can be particularly useful during the planning stage.
It’s good to know what type of shape you want to achieve from your BBL surgery. However, it can sometimes be difficult to convey what you are looking for to your surgeon. When this happens, it can be good to take a look at Brazilian butt lift before and after pictures.
Try to find an individual from the gallery who has a body type similar to yours. Then, look at the results and see if you what you see. For example, you can either tell your surgeon, “I want my butt and hips to look exactly like that!” Or, you can let them know what you do like and don’t like about that person’s results.
3. It’s important to know where you’d like to reduce excess fat before your consultation appointment.
One of the things you’ll be discussing with your plastic surgeon at you BBL consultation appointment is where you’d like to have liposuction Beverly Hills. It’s good to have a handle on this before going into your appointment so that you don’t have to hem and haw while you’re there.
Of course, Dr. Lahar can also walk you through this decision and help you identify places on your body that may benefit the most from liposuction. But if there’s somewhere you’ve always wanted to reduce excess fat, keep these areas in mind in anticipation of the liposuction discussion with your surgeon.
4. Men can get BBLs too.
While most Brazilian butt lift patients tend to be women, men can get BBLs as well. In fact, it’s becoming an increasingly popular surgery for men.
Of course, the Brazilian butt lift men get may be slightly different than the surgery women get. For one thing, many men are more interested in having an athletic figure and don’t necessarily want the classic hourglass figure (think Kim Kardashian) that many women desire.
5. Planning ahead can help tremendously during your BBL recovery.
It’s critical to know what to expect from BBL surgery before and after the procedure itself. Most importantly, you should know how to plan for your recovery period.
For example, many patients like to have a BBL pillow or a BBL chair ready to go when they get home from surgery. You should also have some extra help around the house, and you’ll certainly need to take time off from school or work to recover as well.
Overall, if you know about any discomfort or pain you may experience after surgery, it will feel more expected and less difficult to handle. As always, however, if anything alarms you during your recovery or if you have concerns or questions about any aspect of your surgery, you can always contact Dr. Lahar, and he will be happy to assist you.
BBL Beverly Hills: Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I find a Brazilian butt lift near me?
Dr. Nicholas Lahar performs Brazilian butt lifts in the Beverly Hills, CA area. His extensive training, experience, and attention to detail all contribute to his skill at performing this procedure.
What is skinny BBL surgery?
A skinny BBL or mini BBL is the same as a traditional BBL, but the amount of fat that is transferred is smaller than usual. Skinny Brazilian butt lift surgery may be better for an individual who doesn’t have a lot of excess body weight to begin with.
How long does a Brazilian butt lift last?
For nearly all patients, a Brazilian butt lift can provide permanent results. If the fat that is transferred to the buttocks area survives the reinjection process, it will become just like the natural fat that was there before the procedure.
Is there such a thing as a non invasive Brazilian butt lift?
To begin with, Brazilian butt lifts are minimally invasive surgical procedures. Only small incisions need to be made during the surgery.
In some cases, patients can also have dermal fillers used to non-surgically lift the buttocks and add a minimal amount of volume to the hips. Keep in mind, however, that procedures like these won’t make very significant changes to the shape and size of your buttocks and hips.
How much does a BBL cost in Beverly Hills?
Ultimately, the cost of your Beverly Hills BBL depends on many factors. In general, however, a BBL Beverly Hills will likely cost at least $8000. In some cases, the overall cost could be more like $10,000 to $15,000 or even $20,000 or more.
