What Is The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure?
The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a body sculpting procedure that requires three distinct steps. First, Dr. Kreitzberg uses liposuction to take body fat from your abdomen, lower back, thighs, or hips. Then, the removed fat goes through purification and is prepared for injection.
Once the purified tissue is ready, Dr. Kreitzberg injects the fat into your buttocks at strategic locations to increase the volume of your buttocks and refine the shape of your behind. Typically, patients undergo general anesthesia for the surgery. You may return home the same day of your surgery, as the BBL is an outpatient procedure.
Recovery And Results After The BBL Surgery
After a Brazilian butt lift, you may have moderate swelling, bruising, redness, and discomfort at the injection sites. The same side effects may be present in the areas that underwent liposuction fat removal. This swelling may reside after several weeks of recovery.
During the recovery period, it is important that you follow your post-operative instructions to ensure proper healing. For example, it is essential to avoid sitting and sleeping on your buttocks during recovery to prevent complications and reduce swelling. Once the swelling subsides and your incisions heal, your buttocks may appear firmer, lifted, and more voluminous. Additionally, your backside could look much curvier.
An essential factor to consider after a Brazilian butt lift is the body’s reabsorption of some reinjected fat. Over several weeks to months, the body absorbs a small amount of fat injected into the buttocks. Surgeons typically compensate for this by injecting extra fat. However, you will likely see a slight decrease in buttocks volume during the first few weeks of recovery. This should not impact your overall results.

Working out and not seeing the results you hope for can be discouraging, but a Brazilian butt lift in Tulsa could help you achieve fuller buttocks. The procedure transfers excess body fat into the buttocks to enhance their size and shape while slimming other body areas. Since the procedure utilizes your body fat, your behind looks and feels more natural after a BBL than a traditional enhancement surgery with implants.
Recovery typically takes several weeks before side effects subside, but your buttocks could look more voluminous immediately after surgery. Though it may take six months to see your final results, enhancements could last several years after your procedure.
