Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery (BBL surgery)

Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery (BBL surgery)


One of the interventions that have grown the most in recent years is that it has to do with the buttocks. Specifically, with its increase through a surgical intervention that, in addition to increasing its size and shaping it, also allows to end sagging, dimples, depressions, and the presence of fat.

Commonly called Brazilian Butt Lift (bbl surgery) or gluteoplasty, this surgery is capable of radically changing the appearance of the buttocks, even when the appearance of defects in the buttocks is due to poor development of the pelvic bone or occurs as a result of a muscle problem originating in the hip.

 The procedure that is usually carried out in Brazilian butt lift (bbl surgery) is as follows: 

After undergoing prior consultations and opportunity tests, compression stockings are placed that the patient must wear before going through the operating room.

Once there, you will almost certainly be given general anesthesia, and an incision of between three and four centimeters will be made between the buttocks (so as not to leave any visible scar) to be able to intervene.

Once access is achieved, the patient's own fat will be inserted or the prosthesis placed, in addition to the necessary drains. After this, the area is sutured. Once closed, the patient will be returned to the floor.

As you can see, it is not a particularly complicated operation, so anyone who is not comfortable with their buttocks and wants to change their size, volume, or shape, as long as they are of legal age and are in a position to undergo surgery. you can do it.

It is important to emphasize that Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL surgery) / gluteoplasty is not recommended for people with obesity problems.


Types of buttock augmentation techniques:

As was briefly mentioned in the previous point, there are two buttock augmentation techniques that are practiced in current medicine: the BBL surgery or buttock augmentation through the injection of fat from the patient and the buttock augmentation through the implant. of a silicone prosthesis. 

As for buttock augmentation with fat injections, also known as Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL surgery), lipoinjection or lipotransference in the buttocks, it is a surgical intervention in which fat is absorbed from unwanted areas that are later treated and processed so that it can finally be used to give volume and shape to the patient's bottom.

It is, therefore, a double operation with a double advantage for those who choose it: on the one hand, eliminating the fat from where it is left over and, on the other, obtaining the desired buttocks. That is why it requires an expert surgeon in the application of this technique since only then is it possible to achieve a round, plump, and showy buttocks, always respecting the patient's physiognomy. 

It goes without saying that this type of operation can only be performed by those people who have excess adipose tissue since otherwise it is impossible to carry it out, inasmuch as it can only be performed with their own fat. 

Buttock implants

The alternative for those who, as a consequence of their anatomy, do not have areas with fat accumulation to undergo a lipotransference in the buttocks is the implantation of a prosthesis that allows them to achieve a larger size and a more oval shape in their butt.

In this technique, semisolid silicone implants are inserted through a minimal incision hidden between the two buttocks to later place it either under or within the gluteus maximus muscle. Places in which it will be accommodated and will not move under any circumstances.

The prosthesis will always go in the upper buttocks since the insertion in the lower area can affect some nerves. It should be noted that the silicone prostheses used in buttock augmentation are tremendously resistant, at the same time pleasant and natural to the touch. Also, it is often necessary to inject a little fat to achieve a completely rounded shape.

And it is when the prosthesis implant is combined with lipofilling that a most natural appearance is achieved in the buttocks.
