When it comes to contouring the proportions of your body, many people may be concerned about the appearance of their buttocks. Although many exercises can tone the buttocks, squats and other activities at the gym can be painful, time-consuming, and may not produce the results you’re looking for.
A BBL or Brazilian Butt Lift is an ideal body contouring treatment for patients at Vanitas Medical Group in Orlando, FL who want to improve their overall body proportions.
A Brazilian butt lift is a minimally-invasive augmentation procedure that can enhance the volume and shape of the buttocks. This treatment is ideal for those who want to improve the appearance of their lower body, particularly those who have body-contouring goals or who are fighting with age-related volume loss.
Unlike a traditional surgical butt lift, the techniques used in a BBL procedure are less invasive and less traumatic. This treatment is easier to recover from and can produce long-lasting, natural-looking results.
This particular treatment is a combination of two cosmetic procedures - tumescent liposuction and fat grafting injections. This treatment approaches body contouring with an artistic eye so that you can sculpt your body into your desired body shape.
Tumescent liposuction is a minimally invasive technique that removes fat from the body with less trauma. This form of liposuction works by injecting a specialty liquid into areas of the body where there is undesired fat. Once the tumescent anesthetic interacts with localized fat cells, it causes swelling that can allow the unwanted fat to be removed easily.
The liposuction portion of this treatment occurs when a microcannula is used to remove your pockets of fat. This form of liposuction is less painful and less traumatic to the body than traditional liposuction, and can also remove fat in small areas without creating unnatural results.
After your fat has been removed from the donation area, it will then be purified and prepared for injection. The purified fat will be prepared in a way that will allow it to bond with nearby tissues more easily to volumize your desired treatment location. Several small injections will be made into the desired zones of your buttocks to sculpt and shape your bottom.
Before your procedure, you will need to attend a comprehensive consultation and medical evaluation to ensure that you are a good candidate for this treatment. About one week before your procedure, you will need to temporarily stop using medications and supplements that thin the blood. You may be given antibiotics or pain medications after your treatment, so it's a good idea to fill these prescriptions before your appointment.
Please do not shave or wax any desired treatment location and arrive at your procedure with clean skin. Do not wear any lotions, perfumes, or powders on your body on the day of your treatment. Wear comfortable, loose clothing, preferably cotton.
After your treatment, you will receive several post-op instructions to help you with your recovery. For the first two weeks after your procedure, you will be advised to sleep on your stomach so you don't disturb the settling of the fat injections. You should take all medications as prescribed, including stool softeners or osmotic laxatives to prevent constipation if you are using pain medication.
You should engage in light activity, such as walking around the house, during your recovery. You will be allowed to lift to a few pounds, but you should avoid bending, straining, and strenuous exercise for at least two weeks,
Sitting should be limited, so you may want to purchase a specialized pillow, such as a donut cushion, that will minimize the pressure that is placed on the buttocks. Laying down on your side or your stomach is optimal.
For your diet, it's a good idea to eat a low-fat diet for the first one to two weeks after your procedure to maintain your metabolic rate and also prevent weight gain. Be sure to drink at least 48 to 64 oz of water a day to stay hydrated. Avoid drinking alcohol until the end of your recovery.
You may be advised to wear compression garments 24 hours a day for the first 6 weeks of your recovery. Wearing the compression garment will encourage more rapid healing and will ensure that your results develop as desired since the compression garment will contour the body.
The results of this procedure are intended to be permanent. The fat that is transferred to your buttocks is intended to stay in that area for several years. That said, significant changes in your body weight will alter your desired results, so it's important to maintain your current weight.
One reason why you may want to consider this body contouring procedure includes the reduction of unwanted fat in other areas of the body, such as the stomach. BBL can also be used to improve your body proportions so you can achieve an hourglass shape. Improving the proportions of your body can make it easier to buy clothes and can boost the confidence you have in your appearance.
As much time as you spend dieting and exercising, it’s possible that your efforts are not achieving your desired body contouring goals. A BBL or Brazilian butt lift is an ideal procedure if you want to enhance the shape or size of your buttocks. The results of this procedure can last for several years.
