Achieve the butt of your dreams and build your confidence with BBL surgery. The cosmetic procedure can give you the shapely buttocks that will not only boost your confidence but also make you look even better in all your clothes.

But before you have BBL surgery, it’s important to know all you can about the procedure. Let’s take a look at what the procedure entails and the results you can achieve.

What is BBL Surgery?

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a fat transfer cosmetic outpatient procedure that is used to change the size and shape of the buttocks without the need for implants. During the procedure, we remove fat from one area of the body and transfer it to the buttocks to give you the look you desire.

The fat can be removed from the hips, lower back, abdomen, or thighs and will be injected straight into the buttocks.

Who is a Good Candidate for BBL Surgery?

While most people are good candidates for BBL surgery, there are some qualifications that make some people more qualified than others. Some of the things that may make you an ideal candidate for BBL surgery include:

  • Being in overall good health
  • Being at a stable weight
  • Having enough body fat to be harvested
  • Looking to enhance your buttocks without implants
  • Having realistic expectations and a positive outlook
  • Being a nonsmoker

What to Expect During BBL Surgery?

The BBL surgery will start with the administration of local or general anesthesia, depending on what Dr. Diktaban determines is right for you and your comfort levels.

From there, Dr. Diktaban will make small incisions along the donor site. He’ll then insert cannulas (small, thin tubes) beneath the skin to loosen the fat, and a vacuum will be used to suction out the fat.

The fat will then be purified and processed before it’s injected into specific locations in the buttocks to give you the shape you’re looking for.

The whole procedure typically takes 2-4 hours.

What to Expect After BBL Surgery?

After your BBL surgery, you’ll need to get plenty of rest, but you won’t be able to sit or put any pressure on your buttocks for at least two weeks. You’ll need to sleep on your stomach or your side and stand for any other activities except for sitting on the toilet.

You’ll also likely notice some bruising, discomfort, and swelling on the buttocks and in the donor area. Some initial results may show up immediately, but most noticeable results won’t show up until the swelling goes down.

To ensure proper healing, you’ll want to avoid strenuous activities and smoking, if you’re a smoker.

When Dr. Diktaban allows you to sit, you will need a donut or a pillow under your thighs to avoid putting too much pressure on your buttocks. It usually takes one week before you can return to light activities and 10-14 days before you can return to work.  It takes about eight weeks until you can return to your normal levels of activity.`
