BBL Surgery

The Brazilian Butt Lift has many names.  The Butt Lift. the BBL, Lower Buttock Lift Surgery and Butt Surgery are the most common.  However, no matter what you call Butt Lift Surgery, the Butt Lift Procedure involves liposuction of the waist coupled with fat transfer to the buttocks. Here we will discuss the BBL Meaning as well as the BBL Cost.

So what is a Brazilian Butt?

There is no evidence that Brazilians have better butts than anyone else.  There is evidence that shapely butts are a Brazilian obsession. One just has to look at the recent Miss BumBum Brasil  pageant.  We do know that Brazilians appreciate a curvy figure.  The Brazilian Butt appears to be well defined and plump with a small waist and lower back, as well as  curvy hips and thighs.

So how can I get a Brazilian Butt?*

If we weren’t lucky to be born with a beautiful butt, there are many ways to help get one.  A very popular and effective method is the Brazilian Butt Workout or Butt Lift Workout.  Targeted exercises to enlarge and sculpt gluteal muscles can really make a difference.  Weight loss also helps sculpt the lower back and waist.  These workout programs can help certain women.  However, much of the shape of the buttocks is also due to the underlying fat.  If you just don’t have the fat, the volume needs to be added.    The old way of Buttocks Augmentation was with buttocks implants.  However, this procedure required large incisions, placement of a foreign object in the body and a long recovery. Buttocks implants have now been surpassed by the Brazilian Butt Lift. Utilizing fat transfer and liposuction, the procedure is much safer, has better results and a faster recovery.

What is BBL Meaning?

The BBL Surgery is a combination of plastic surgery and artistry.  It combines body sculpting with liposuction and fat transfer augmentation.  The first part of the procedure involves aggressive liposuction of the waist, back and hips.  If there is excessive fat on the abdomen or thighs (or anywhere else), the surgeon can remove it and prepare it for transfer.  The body sculpting of the waist and back is critical.  A small back and waist will naturally enhance the appearance and the size of the buttocks as well as define its shape.

Once the liposuction is complete, the fat removed is readied for transfer.  It is separated from the anesthetic fluid. The surgeon then carefully injects the fat throughout the buttocks to enhance the volume and provide shape and lift.

Tell me more about the BBL Surgery.

Dr Staci Hix-Hernandez MD   is an experienced and talented Butt Lift surgeon and could be considered one of the Best BBL Surgeons in Austin.  She performs the butt lift procedure completely under local anesthesia while awake. The tumescent anesthesia combined with some oral sedation, makes the procedure a same day surgery.  The patient leaves the procedure with no pain and returns to normal activities almost immediately.

Dr Hix-Hernandez combine the use of Smartlipo Liposuction and Vaser Ultrasonic Liposuction to provide the best body contouring results.  She is an expert at fat transfer augmentation to the buttocks.  She can also add platelet rich plasma (PRP) to further improve the fat transfer results.

How long does the Brazilian Butt surgery last?

The liposuction involves removing the fat cells from the areas treated.  As long as you maintain or lose weight, you will always have those body sculpting results.  The fat transfer involves the transplant of living tissue.  We try to maximize its survival, but a certain percentage of the fat cells will die.  We ask that you don’t sit on it for the first 72 hours and as little as possible for the first week.  We can always go back and do more fat transfer to provide even more volume.  However, we do see a large percentage of the transferred fat surviving long-term after the initial procedure.

Is the Brazil Butt Lift safe: Brazilian Butt Lift Risks.

Like any surgical procedure, the Brazilian Butt Lift has the risks of infection, bleeding and pain.  We actively work at our AAAHC accredited surgical suite to make your safety our number one priority.  We utilize local anesthesia, which avoids the risks of general anesthesia and makes the procedure much safer.    We have successfully performed thousands of individual patient liposuction & fat transfer procedures and are thoroughly experienced at doing it safely.  Plus, you are back on your feet immediately and this further prevents any complications.

What is the BBL Cost?

The great thing about Butt Lift Surgery is that it can be added onto a liposuction procedure.  This greatly reduces the BBL Cost as the majority of the expenses are already built into the liposuction procedure.
