Most people have body contouring goals, but achieving these goals can sometimes be difficult with only diet and exercise. Fortunately, there are body shaping treatments such as a Brazilian butt lift or BBL that can help you get the body you want. Learn more about this procedure before you schedule your first appointment with us at MKE Aesthetics & Wellness.
Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift is a fat transfer treatment that removes unwanted fat from one area of the body, and places that fat in the buttocks to enhance the size and shape of the butt. In general, the people who are most interested in using this treatment are those who have a specific body goal or those who are unable to tone and lift the buttocks with exercises such as squats.
How It Works
This treatment begins with a basic fat grafting technique. A fat grafting technique will gently remove fat from areas such as the abdomen, purify the fat, and then inject the fat directly into desired areas on the buttocks.
What Should You Do Before Treatment?
Before your procedure, you should make sure to prepare appropriately for your procedure. This may mean that you need to temporarily discontinue medications like aspirin or supplements that cause easy bruising for at least one to two weeks before your procedure.
What Should You Do After Treatment?
After your treatment, you will generally need to follow recovery instructions for at least 10 to 14 days. For example, during the first two weeks after your butt lift, you will not be able to sit directly on the buttocks unless you are going to the bathroom, and even then you should try to sit for less than 10 minutes.
Avoiding sitting or laying down on the buttocks will ensure the shape of your behind heals optimally. To avoid pressure on the buttocks, you should try to sleep on your side and use a donut pillow for at least eight weeks. You will be able to resume normal daily activities, including going back to work, within one to two weeks after your procedure.
How Long Will Results Last?
In general, the results of a BBL treatment will last for a lifetime. The fat that is placed in the buttocks during a butt lift is intended to remain there for the rest of your life. As long as you can maintain your current weight or avoid losing a significant amount of weight, you will be able to enjoy long-lasting results.
Of course, lifestyle factors such as sitting too often and not getting enough exercise may affect how your results look. For this reason, it’s recommended to engage in light activity every day, keep up with regular exercise, and have a balanced diet.
Why Should You Consider Body Contouring?
There are several reasons why patients consider body contouring treatments such as a butt lift. The fact of the matter is that it’s not always as easy as it seems to achieve the body of your goals. Factors such as medications, genetics, and stress can make it easier to gain weight, harder to keep up with exercise routines, or present other challenges that make it difficult to contour your body into the shape you want.
Many people want to achieve better body proportions. Some women have a goal to achieve an hourglass shape, meaning that the measurements of the bust and the hips are generally even while the waist measurement is much smaller. However, for many women, the hourglass shape is not something they are born with, which means that a contouring treatment may be necessary to achieve this body shape.
Fat reduction is also another common motivation for using a contouring or body shaping technique. In particular, any contouring treatment that uses liposuction or fat grafting techniques will remove unwanted body fat in certain areas of the body, which can help you achieve a better body shape and aid in the removal of unwanted fat.
Many people also consider contouring treatments for the sake of fitting into clothing better. Your natural body shape may mean that you have narrower hips and wider thighs, which can make it difficult to fit into certain pants and skirts. By using a contouring technique, you can fill in the shape of your behind to make it easier to find clothing that fits you correctly.
Self-confidence is another important motivating factor for why people consider contouring treatments. Having a body you’re proud of makes all the difference in feeling healthier and happier. Some studies show that people who are satisfied with the appearance of their bodies are more likely to stick to a healthy diet and exercise routines.
Are You a Good Candidate?
You are likely a good candidate for the treatment if you have a moderate to normal BMI, you’re committed to leading a healthy lifestyle, and you have goals that can only be achieved through contouring treatments. You’ll need to attend a consultation to assess whether or not this treatment can help with your goals.
