What is BBL Surgery?BBL stands for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.  Simply, the BBL is a plastic surgery procedure utilizing liposuction and fat transfer to increase the size and contours of the buttocks.  BBL surgery can be performed safely while awake using tumescent anesthesia.  Liposuction is performed first, specifically focusing on decreasing the size of the waist.  By producing a smaller waist, the buttocks naturally looks bigger.  The fat removed during the liposuction, is then carefully injected into the buttocks with the aim of increasing its size and improving its shape.  No other procedure can produce the figure altering effects of the Brazilian Butt Lift.What is the BBL Cost?Considering the results delivered by BBL surgery, the BBL price is quite reasonable.  No amount of dieting, exercise or non surgical procedures, can deliver the results of BBL surgery.  In fact, one can waste tens of thousands of dollars trying to get Brazilian Butt Lift results, with nothing to show for it.  The BBL cost at Beleza Medspa starts at $5999 and requires a free consultation for individualized pricing.Butt Implants vs BBLBefore BBL surgery was perfected, Butt Implants were the only procedure available for buttocks augmentation.  The problem with butt implants was that a foreign body (plastic) had to be placed into the buttocks.  Obviously, having a foreign body in your buttocks for a lifetime was not ideal.  There were problems with movement of the implants as well as discomfort.  Further, butt implants required large incisions to be made that left scars and other concerns.BBL surgery has revolutionalized buttocks augmentation.  By simply “taking fat from where you don’t want it and putting it where you want it”, BBL surgery has been a game changer.  The liposuction required to harvest the fat produces a smaller waist that by itself, produces a larger-looking buttocks.  The fat transfer procedure requires only small incisions and since the fat is from your body, the risks for infection or rejection are markedly decreased.  The buttocks normally contains a great deal of fat and using your own fat to enlarge them, makes sense and produces natural looking results.BBL ResultsWhen interested in Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, one should look at BBL Before and After Photos to judge BBL Results.  View some of Beleza Medspa’s BBL results here.…

Brazilian Butt LiftButt lifts can boost confidence, help clothes fit more easily, and help women feel even more attractive. Here are a few facts about butt lift procedures:What to Expect with a Butt Lift:The butt lift is pain-free – given that local anesthesia is used. Oral sedation may also be given, and the patient remains awake.Some key points include:Butt lifts can be conducted with your own fat, meaning no implants and no rejection. Sculpt fat away pain-free from other areas, like the midsection, and re-inject it into the butt – for a much-needed lift. This is otherwise known as the Brazilian butt lift. Candidates will undergo detailed screenings to determine where fat will be harvested from. The most common areas include the hip, thighs, or midsection, as discussed earlier. However, anywhere is fair game, if you’re unhappy with excess fat in one area for instance. Fat is filtered and then placed in the butt through layers, which a physician will understand. The butt is sculpted until the anticipated shape by patients is set. More fat than desired is typically injected, due to the chances of reabsorption in the body. A follow-up session is typically recommended to get the best results possible. Learn more by contacting a lead physician. The average price for a Brazilian butt lift is under $3000, and in some cases financing is offered. Patients can get back to normal activities in as little as a few days.Contributing Factors When Signing Up for Butt LiftsThroughout different stages, women may become uncomfortable with the size and shape of their buttocks due to age, weight loss, pregnancy, or simply being born and teased about a flat bum.The good news is that you can get help.Brazilian Butt Lift Benefits:Perkiness – a perky rear-end is considered to be youthful and attractive. Butt lifts make sagging a thing of the past. Curves – stars like J. Lo, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian have set on a craze that curviness should be embraced. Many people are taking notice. Au-Natural – remember that Brazilian butt lifts use your own fatty tissues from unwanted areas, then transfers it to the butt. If you’ve always been displeased with the weight distribution of your body, now’s the time to make a change – it’s possible with the safe and effective transfers done in cosmetic surgery.The results are drastic and requires little effort on your part. See how you stack up against other patients. Scheduling and undergoing a Brazilian butt lift is as easy as 1-2-3.…

Buttocks Augmentation with Fat Transfer.Now more than ever, we are seeing a rise in popularity of curvaceous butts. The flat, straight figure is no longer the only desirable type of body, with a more curvaceous look being embraced. The admiration of these curvaceous figures can be attributed to the sought-after looks of celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, and Beyoncé, who are all well known for their curves.Brazilian Butt Lift StatisticsNew statistics show that more Americans are getting more buttock augmentations—nicknamed the Brazilian butt lift. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, last year, approximately 10,000 buttock augmentations were performed. This number is up from the approximately 8,500 procedures done in 2012. While these numbers are not even close to the figures for breast augmentation procedures, it does represent a 16% increase. Additionally, the number of cosmetic surgeons offering the butt life procedure rose from 19% in 2012, to 30% in 2013.One surgeon says that he started receiving requests for buttock augmentations about three and a half years ago, and it is currently the second most popular procedure he performs. While not as popular as liposuction, his practice has seen the number of Brazilian butt lifts surpass breast augmentations. He also says that he does about four to five butt lifts per week, for both women and men.What is the Brazilian Butt Lift?While many think that this procedure is to just increase the size of the buttocks, it is actually done to provide a more youthful, lifted and contoured appearance.The Brazilian butt lift procedure entails “buttock augmentation with fat grafting”. The technique involves a surgeon performing liposuction, or removing fat from another body area, usually an area with excess fat such as the tummy, thighs, or hips. This fat is then injected into the buttocks.Surgeons say that the fat tissue is pliable, giving more control than synthetic materials such as silicone that are used for butt implants. Additionally, the patient receives two benefits from this procedure—losing fat in areas where it is unwanted, along with receiving a more pronounced derriere.Curious?Brazilian Butt Lift Before and After…

Butt Implants Near Me.

What are Butt Implants?In the search for a more shapely butt, many women will consider butt augmentation.  There are many ways to do this and one of them is with buttocks implants.  Butt implants are made of soft silicone.  They are designed to adhere to the curves of the buttocks while giving them more volume. They do require a surgical procedure to place them using a large incision.  They are placed into a pocket where they remain forever.  However, as we all know, we sit on our buttocks constantly.  As a result, you will be sitting on foreign objects that could cause discomfort. There is also a risk that they can move and become infected.  So although they can provide almost instant gratification, buttock implants are an imperfect solution to buttocks augmentation surgery.Do Butt Injections Work?There are some soft tissue fillers approved for use in body contouring overseas.  They mainly consist of hyaluronic acids like Hydrogel.   However, their longevity and problems with discomfort have limited their use.  Recently, there has been a rash of non-medical individuals performing Butt Injections with a host of different substances. There have been cases of silicone, caulk and even cement being injected into buttocks.  These cases have led to severe injury and disfigurement.  It is important to know that there are no completely safe buttock injections currently available.Brazilian Buttock Augmentation SurgeryWhat is the Brazilian Butt Lift?Using safe, awake liposuction under local anesthesia, the Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat transfer to naturally perform Butt Augmentation.  Your own fat is the best filler as it carries no risk of infection, allergic reaction and it is already a natural part of your buttocks. Even better, many of us have plenty of extra fat that we can donate to perform fat transfer to the buttocks.  The Brazil But Lift combines extensive body contouring using liposuction of the waist, abdomen and back.  Reducing the waist and lower back will enhance the size and shape of the buttocks prior to fat transfer.  The removed fat is then loaded into syringes and carefully distributed throughout the buttocks to build them up in a pleasing manner.  These are living fat cells that we want to survive so the patient cannot sit on them for 72 hours and as little as possible for the first week.  Unfortunately, we will lose a certain percentage of the fat injected, but fat survival rates in the buttocks are high.  The Brazilian Butt Lift offers the best combination of body contouring and safe fat transfer to provide the round and fuller butt most women prefer.  Contact us for a free Butt Lift consultation now!…

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 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 the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure? The Brazilian Butt Lift is a combination of 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 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 and loaded into large syringes.  The surgeon then carefully injects the fat throughout the buttocks to enhance the volume and provide shape and lift. Tell me more about the Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery. Dr Lawrence Broder MD and Dr Staci Hix-Hernandez MD   are experienced and talented Butt Lift surgeons.  They perform 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 Broder & Dr Hix-Hernandez combine the use of Smartlipo Laser Liposuction and Vaser Ultrasonic Liposuction to provide the best body contouring results.  They are experts at fat transfer augmentation to the buttocks.  They 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.
