Brazilian Butt Lift: What to Expect, Duration and Key Factors to Consider

In an age where body positivity and personal aesthetics blend seamlessly, there is a cosmetic procedure that’s captivated many in pursuit of a curvier, more voluptuous silhouette: The Brazilian Butt Lift or commonly referred to as BBL. As celebrities and influencers flaunt their transformed silhouettes, patients come to Dr. Michael W. Gray, DO at Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa from all across the country to experience the ultimate transformation. In this blog post, we will examine the intricacies of the BBL, discuss its benefits and key factors to consider.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift, often abbreviated as BBL, isn’t your typical “lift.” Instead of merely raising the buttocks, it’s a form of buttock augmentation, which employs a patient’s own body fat. Harvested from one part of the body—often from the “problem area” which are composed of cells resistant to diet and exercise—the fat is processed and then re-injected into the buttocks. The result? A fuller, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing buttock.  What is little known is that taking fat away from key areas ( if present ) have a more drastic effect than injecting fat alone. A sculptor “ takes away “ to create shape vs adding only makes the same shape fuller. The Waist, Hips, Sacrum and at times the Outer thighs are crucial for creating shape. These key areas are sites that not only Donate but also Shape while all other areas are donors.

Duration and Longevity of BBL Surgery in Michigan

One of the foremost questions posed by potential BBL surgery candidates is: How long does it last? The answer is reassuring. A Brazilian Butt Lift surgery in Michigan, when done correctly, provides results that are long-lasting. As the transplanted fat cells establish a blood supply, they become permanent fixtures. DR Gray states if not doing hyperbaric O2 before and after ( which promotes survivability of fat that is transferred ) then you maintain approximately 50% after 6 weeks. Dr. Gray actually stores fat if extra is left over for future BBL’s. If the fat obtained is from a problem area then future diet and exercise will have no effect. Thus, significant weight fluctuations or other exceptional circumstances, the enhanced shape from a BBL is there to stay.
