From lifestyle magazines to social media influencers, we’re certainly no stranger to images of women showing off their curvy body shape across all media platforms.
Which is why it’s no surprise that the trend for a fuller, rounded bottom is causing an uplift in the number of requests for a ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’ procedure.
What is a ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’?
A Brazilian Butt Lift, or ‘BBL’ for short, is a relatively new cosmetic surgery trend, and the procedure’s popularity continues to grow year upon year.
Experts even dubbed 2015 as ‘year of the rear’ in the US, with butt lift procedures increasing by 252% compared to the early 2000s.
And this trend has now travelled across the pond, where UK surgeons saw a 500% rise in BBL consultations in 2016.
Taking inspiration from the beautiful, curvy figures of Brazilian women, the popularity of the Brazilian Butt Lift is due to the results that occur when completed by an experienced surgeon.
The procedure increases the size and shape of the patient’s butt by either using implants, fat injections or both.
It can also smooth out any of lumps and bumps to create the perfectly ‘round’ shape that we see in the media today.
So, what does the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure entail?
A highly qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon can improve the lower body’s proportions with a BBL procedure.
With such effective results, there are set steps that need to occur to create the fuller, rounded shape the patient desires.
It’s a surprise to many patients, but the procedure is very similar to that of liposuction.
The surgeon will begin the BBL procedure by removing fat out of certain areas of the body, depending on the patient’s distribution of fat.
Any fat removed will then be re-injected into the buttocks and hips, which will be outlined by the surgeon beforehand.
Due to the procedure’s complex nature, the patient will most likely be operated on under anaesthesia.
Depending on the surgeon’s opinion, they may instead opt for local anaesthesia if the patient only requires a small amount of fat transferred.
The procedure itself is around two hours long, but it can be a lengthy month-long recovery process.
What is the recovery process like for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Following a successful Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, the patient will need to allow enough time for recovery before they can begin to go back to their normal day to day life.
Once the anaesthetic has worn off and the patient has come round, as with any cosmetic procedure, there will be an element of discomfort as the wounds heal.
There will be pain and swelling to the affected area, but there should be a significant improvement after seven days.
Patients will also be required to wear compression garments to ensure they have the best chance of a speedy recovery for the first week or so post-surgery.
As part of their recovery, it is vital that the patient attends any follow up appointments with their GP.
A medical professional will monitor how well the patient is recovering, along with whether they can remove the compression garments and begin sleeping on their back again.
And choosing a top medical professional for your BBL is essential if you want to make sure the results you are looking for are achieved.
