The Brazilian Butt Lift and other fat transfer procedures have become common ways to contour the body, and yet we still pinch ourselves at the very idea that we can really take fat from one part of the body and place it elsewhere. You may still be in that state, too. Maybe that’s why you are still thinking about the body you wish to have. Here, we provide a few details that may help you take the next step to the shape of your dreams.
Is the BBL really a lift?
The name of the procedure literally says “lift,” so it would be natural to assume that the buttock is actually lifted into a new position. That’s not really the way it works. The procedure is called Brazilian Butt Lift because, once fat cells are added to all the right places in the backside, there becomes an appearance of fullness and contouring. The buttocks change shape but aren’t surgically lifted through the removal of skin.
Who is Getting Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?
There used to be a connotation that the BBL procedure was sought by individuals who were seeking a dramatically larger backside; a “look at me” kind of thing. This isn’t true of the patients we see in our Southern California offices. Many people are dissatisfied with the flat shape of their buttocks. The Brazilian Butt Life provides them with the means to round out their shape so that they may fill out their clothes better. We dare say that the majority of patients treated with BBL surgery today have no intention of showing off their derriere in Rio anytime soon.
What BBL Does
You may know that a Brazilian Butt Lift can give you a rounder, fuller backside, but there’s more to it than that. A non-existent butt actually detracts from a person’s overall shape. The low back and hips don’t curve nearly as much when there is no shape to the buttocks. Adding fat to this one area of the body accentuates the curves that surround it. If fat cells are harvested from one of these areas, such as the thighs, hips, flanks, or abdomen, curves are accentuated even more.
There are several reasons why the Brazilian Butt Lift is one of the top cosmetic procedures today. Why live out another summer with a shape you don’t love? Call 760-240-2444 to learn more about BBL in our Palm Springs, Apple Valley, or Laguna Beach facility.
