What does a BBL do?

When it comes to butt augmentation, more and more people in Miami, FL choose to enhance their backside with a Brazilian butt lift. Augmentation with butt implants has been around for decades, with patients choosing silicone implants to give their buttocks a fuller, rounder shape. However, in the past few years, another body contouring technique has been increasing in popularity called a Brazilian butt lift or BBL. It is a more natural method, using a person's excess fat extracted with liposuction from another area of the body, such as the thighs, lower back, or abdomen, then reinjected to give their buttocks a shapelier, smoother look. It also requires less downtime and is less invasive when compared to butt implants. But, can a person be too skinny for BBL surgery?

Who is an ideal candidate for a BBL?

Ideally, the best candidates for a BBL have a healthy skin laxity that will look full and shapely once the fat is injected. Most women and men can be considered for this cosmetic procedure considering the following factors:

  • Do not smoke
  • Good health and no pre-existing medical conditions
  • Not pregnant
  • At or near their ideal body weight
  • Enough excess fat to use in the transfer process

How much fat is needed for a BBL?

When it pertains to fat augmentation procedures, in most cases, even women or men who are slim can achieve excellent BBL results. However, there needs to be enough harvested fat to achieve a patient's goals. Patients on the thinner side must understand that this factor is essential to have effective results before BBL surgery. As with any fat transfer to buttocks procedure, a small portion of transferred fat cells will not survive. Dr. LaGrasso is highly experienced and understands how different fat volumes can produce a person's desired outcome. He will evaluate you during the consultation to determine if there is enough excess fat for the transfer process, plus good skin laxity, to achieve the right BBL results.
