Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

 

Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a process of fat transfer to the buttock area. Fat transfer/grafting is a natural technique using your own cells. Fat can be injected into where it is needed to augment the shape of the buttock. Some patients request an upper buttock curve, whereas others request the hollowing on the outside to be improved. Your custom BBL will be designed during your first consultation.

Fat Grafting is a powerful tool to replace areas where fat is needed. Fat transfer has a dual benefit, both improving the donor site, and transplanting the fat to where it is needed. Fat take survives long term, studies show a retention rate long term of 50-80%.

 

 Fat can be harvested from the donor site of your choice, these include:

  • Lower abdomen or tummy area
  • Upper abdomen or tummy area
  • The flank area or the love handles
  • Inside of thighs
  • Inside of thighs
  • Outside of thighs

 

The fat is then infused as microribbons to the areas where you need it the most. These microribbons distributed as a net improves the contact of each fat cell to a source of blood supply. The fat “takes” by it establishing a blood supply through a process of blood vessel ingrowth and integration. This allows the fat to survive long term

 

 The benefits of fat transfer include

 

  • It is natural, using your own tissues
  • It includes plasma (PRP)
  • It includes stem cells which may repopulate the area with new cells
  • Is in plentiful supply once harvested
  • Has a retention rate long term of 50-80%
  • Improved appearance of donor site
  • It can be repeated if needed
