If you’re looking for a way to get a curvier, fuller shape to your buttocks, a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) can be a natural and effective way to add volume to your backside without the use of implants. And by using your own fatty tissue to increase the volume, the results are long-term and have low risk of complications.

A common question people ask when researching procedures like a BBL is how long their results will last. After all, you want to know the time and money is well spent and won’t need to be re-done later to maintain your new look. Let’s find out what factors play into how long this procedure lasts, and what most people can expect from Brazilian butt lift.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

A BBL is a fat grafting or fat transfer procedure that uses liposuction to take fat from one area of your body and put it in your butt instead. This means that a Brazilian butt lift has two benefits: augmenting the size of your rear end while slimming down a problem area like the stomach or thighs.

First, Dr. Diktaban harvests fat from the desired place, contouring the problem area to provide natural curves and superior results. Next, he processes the fat and fluid removed through liposuction to ensure only healthy fat cells are used for re-injection. Finally, he performs a sort of reverse-liposuction technique to add fat cells throughout your buttocks, again providing contour that enhances your natural shape.

Results to Expect

A Brazilian butt lift creates subtle but significant improvement to the shape and size of your buttocks, albeit in a natural way. And because the process uses your own fat, you’ll still have the natural feel you’re used to.

Not all of the transferred fat cells will survive the process, and your body will reabsorb them as you recover. Most patients can expect to retain at least 50% and up to 80% of the injected fat.

The Recovery Process Matters

You have a distinct role to play in both the final appearance and length of results of your Brazilian butt lift. Both as you heal and after you’ve recovered, following all of Dr. Diktaban’s instructions will help ensure you have a speedy recovery and the best chance of retaining the most injected fat possible for the most dramatic results.

Tips For Long-Term Success From BBL

Once you’ve fully recovered from the procedure and are enjoying the results of your Brazilian butt lift, you’ll need a healthy lifestyle to ensure its long-term effectiveness. This includes eating a healthy, balanced diet and exercising regularly.

Significant weight gain or weight loss following cosmetic surgery procedures, including BBL, can counteract the results. Dr. Diktaban always takes your current proportions into account when performing Brazilian butt lifts, and future weight loss or gain can negatively affect your results.
