Brazilian Butt Lift: 5 Things to Know Before BBL Surgery

Brazilian Butt Lift: 5 Things to Know Before BBL Surgery

Meet Jessica and her BBL surgery journey

Jessica first considered getting a Brazilian Butt Lift after her twin sister noticed that her bum had flattened over the years. A mother of two and working full-time, Jessica never had much time to think about herself. However, turning 40 was a significant milestone for her and she decided to consider the changes in her body. After doing a lot of research, Jessica decided to book a consultation with a clinic in London. During the consultation, the surgeon explained that the reason why her buttocks have flattened is because of the drooping of the tissue in the lower part of the buttocks. Brazilian Butt Lift, the surgeon said, is not just about making the bum bigger, but also about lifting the tissues creating a more perky and lifted appearance. The fat is not only used to increase the size of her bum but also to improve the proportions, enhance the curves and to create roundness in the lower part of the buttocks. The consultation lasted over two hours and when the surgeon took her through the animation of the process in 3D, Jessica was so excited and confident that she made up her mind to go ahead with the procedure as soon as possible. However, the consequence of the surgery means that she will have to stay off work, no gym and not to carry or look after young children for six weeks. Reflecting back, Jessica was anxious all the way from the first day of the surgery until the day her bandages and garment were removed. Jessica has recovered well from the surgery and she is very happy with the result.

1.Don’t rush it

However, you may be impatient to see the final results. Try not to get too excited about how your new behind will look. For the first few months, it can look OK from some angles, but not from others. The final results of Brazilian Butt Lift don’t start to show until about three months. The fat has to settle and establish its own blood supply. Until then, the body will reabsorb some of the fat and – particularly with HD lipo results can look quite blotchy and uneven for a time. So – take your time and don’t rush into things too quickly. As with any surgical treatment, it is important to ensure that your recovery is managed properly and that you don’t do too much too soon. Especially with a treatment which involves fat being transferred, it is important not to sit directly onto the treated area for a couple of weeks. During the recovery period, movement and walking around is important and will help the healing process. The final result will be a wonderful new backside with a great shape, no scarring, and hardly any recovery time. With a highly qualified and professional plastic surgeon, you could walk in for the treatment in the morning and out again in the afternoon with your new posterior. It’s that quick and straightforward. Also, there is only local anaesthetic too. The vast majority of treatments of this sort require a few days stay in a hospital. But there are still those that are day-patient procedures, like the Brazilian Butt Lift. Hyper-define and HD lipo are still fairly new concepts over in the UK and much of the population isn’t aware of what they are and the benefits that they can offer. I personally believe that this sort of treatment will start to become much more popular over the next few years as people discover its huge advantages over other methods of fat removal. First as a cautionary part – here is what can happen if you choose an inexperienced surgeon. The risks and potential hazards that are involved with a Brazilian Butt Lift are much the same as with any other surgical treatment. However, there are aspects of the procedure which can make incidents more likely. For instance, in order to maximize the amount of fat which is successfully taken on by the body, a three-dimensional layering technique can be used. This technique involves placing fat throughout the whole bottom in different levels – beneath the skin, centrally in the buttock and above the muscle. This approach can create a much more natural looking and rounded behind. But if the surgeon selects the wrong layer or fails to inject the fat evenly and in the correct area – as well as in the hoped-for amount – the result could be asymmetry, embolden nodules or – much worse – the development of cysts. The industry standard for a qualified and experienced surgeon is extremely high. Even the least successful surgeons still see around 80 to 90 percent viable survival of fat cells in the new location. However, in the hands of a bad surgeon, things can not only go wrong but be catastrophic. Not only could a patient be left with severe lumps, uneven areas and dimples, they could suffer serious infections or have fat tissue necrotize – effectively dying off and becoming a poisonous material within the body. Always take time to research and ensure that any surgery, regardless of the type, is going to be conducted by a fully qualified and reputable professional.

2.Cost of the aftercare

The cost of aftercare includes: lymphatic massages. The important thing to remember is that your aftercare need does not necessarily point to what’s in your aftercare cost. You see, most clinics will offer a standard set of aftercare included in your surgery cost, but if you require further help than you may end up having to pay extra for prescribed items. That’s why it’s absolutely vital that you discuss with your surgeon before taking any further action about your aftercare or budgets for different items with symbols. A consultation with a dedicated member of the surgical team will help you not only to get the information you may need, but it’ll also mean that you can form a rough idea about what your personal cost of the aftercare may come to. Every set of help and attention a patient may require is different and depends entirely on each person. Also, you must ensure to keep checks, receipts and spend true to your own needs – don’t be tempted to spend money in areas if you would not require that type of aftercare, but equally make sure that you know all of your options and budgets if you understand that you may need something a bit extra. When planning for your aftercare cost, it may be worth considering that the location of your surgery and also the standard of which the potential clinic will meet. As in some cases, if you choose to look into surgeries abroad or specifically, for example, in London where price can significantly fluctuate, you’ll find that the aftercare offered may vary too. Relying on the cost of treatments and medicinal products in the location you opt for, you might find that it’s actually more affordable in the long run to pay for a more expensive clinic that offers a more comprehensive aftercare package. Lastly, it’s vitally important that you consider the types of medicines that you might need to help combat any side effects or support your healing processes. More often than not, non-prescribed medications can be brought to help combat things like constipation, indigestion, sleep loss or back pains which are very regular after surgery. But, if you feel you’d rather not buy the same medicine every so often after your surgery, it may be worth looking at some of the more advanced or prescribed alterations of these products. Prescribed medications are generally be supported by a professional opinion, particularly a post-operative nurse, and their expertise can mean that you achieve a better quality of recovery.

3.Know the stages of recovery

Stage one (day 1-day 10):

The incision areas may continue to drain for the first several days. In some cases, a small drainage tube may be inserted during surgery to help with the fluid build-up. Patients will need to empty these bulbs two or three times a day. Swelling and bruising will be at its peak for the first few days. However, patients are encouraged to try to walk around as soon and as much as possible, in order to reduce the risks of blood clot. Healed incisions are usually fully closed after 10 to 14 days, but the swelling is still there for weeks and swelling at the incision can takes months to resolve. Patients should avoid sitting directly on the buttocks for too long for the initial period.

Stage two (day 10- day 30):

Most patients are able to return to work after 10 to 14 days of the surgery. It is critical to still sleep on the stomach or side, and wear the compression garment for at least 4-6 weeks full-time and at least 2-4 weeks part-time. The additional pressure applied on the fats can improve fat survival. After 7-10 days from the surgery, patients will be able to take light walks, and after 14 days, most patients can engage in more strenuous walking and other similar exercises. By this stage, some of the prominent results are able to be seen.

Stage three (beyond day 30):

Continue to wear the compression garment for at least 4-6 weeks full-time and at least 2-4 weeks part-time. Light exercise at this stage is expected. By now, the buttock muscles are fully recovered and irreversible. However, it takes up to 3 months to get to final shape, and sometime it could be as long as 6 months. Patients should consult with BBL surgery provider before engaging any intensive exercises that intended to impact the buttock area. And a good healthy diet with plenty of water intake is also essential to ensure quick recovery and maximize the results of the surgery. It is reported that it takes 3 to 6 months for the swelling to subside, and scars and incision that are slightly under the bikini line will fade and flatten over time. Every person’s recovery will be different, and it’s important to consult with the doctor to get personalized advice and guidance throughout the recovery process after BBL surgery.

Recovery for Brazilian Butt Lift surgery occurs in several stages over a period of time. These stages require different levels of self-care and intervention, and it is important to follow the recommendations of your doctor as well as to monitor your progress and report any significant changes to your doctor. In general, it is advised to avoid prolonged sitting or pressure on the buttocks for the first few weeks.

4.Be aware of early signs of complication

One of the major risks associated with Brazilian butt lift surgery is a fat embolism. This is a serious complication that occurs when a piece of loosened fat enters a blood vessel and becomes trapped. This can cause a blockage and in serious cases could be fatal. Fat embolisms are not very common but it is important to be vigilant for the early signs of a fat embolism post-surgery. Early signs of a fat embolism may include: sudden shortness of breath, chest pain, continual cough, coughing up pink frothy sputum, and lightheadedness or increased anxiety. If any of these symptoms are noted, it is imperative that you seek urgent medical attention. It is also important to remember that complications can arise such as a fat embolism even several weeks after surgery. If you develop any of these symptoms after surgery, you are advised to attend the nearest emergency department so that a fat embolism can be ruled out and appropriate treatment delivered.

5.Be prepared for positive/negative feedback

Regardless of the fact that you had the BBL surgery for your own body and not for others, once you have undergone BBL surgery, you may feel a mixture of both excitement and nervousness, and you would want everybody to notice the changes made to your body. You may want everyone to praise the augmentation performed. But after the procedure, you are likely to receive a number of different comments and opinions from your friends and others. You have been prepared for all kinds of comments and now is the time for the most important part. It is important that you are feeling good about your own body and the transformation. Positive feedback from people will increase your confidence, self-esteem, and ensure you have made the right choice, but negative feedback may lead to sadness and a depressed feeling. It is your body in actuality and you do not need to justify the reason for undergoing Brazilian butt lift to anyone. Although we all love to receive compliments from others, but it is crucial to understand that every individual has a different opinion. It is impossible to please everyone. There are various reasons why negative feedback or lack of support can affect us. You may feel that you are being judged or worry that someone would disagree with your choices. You may just be looking for the stamp of approval from your loved ones. However, before asking your friends whether they like your new shape or not, ask yourself first. Do you feel more confident and happy with your life and your body? Would the second person’s opinion change your view towards the surgery?
