How much fat is needed for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

What is Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks. The procedure involves removing fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs, and transferring it to the buttocks. This can help to add volume and shape to the buttocks, creating a more rounded and lifted appearance.

 

How much fat is needed for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The amount of fat needed for a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) varies from person to person and depends on several factors such as the desired size and shape of the buttocks, the patient’s body shape, and the amount of fat available for harvesting.

On average, between 1000-2000cc of fat is needed to achieve a noticeable difference in the size of the buttocks. However, the amount of fat that can be successfully transferred also depends on the patient’s body type and the specific technique used by the surgeon.

During the initial consultation, the surgeon will evaluate the patient’s body and discuss their desired outcomes. The surgeon will then be able to provide an estimate of how much fat is needed to achieve the desired results.

It’s important to note that not all of the harvested fat will survive the transplantation process and the final result may not be exactly as the patient expect, some patients may require more than one surgery to achieve the desired results.

It’s also important to keep in mind that a BBL is not a weight loss procedure, patients should be at or near their ideal weight prior to surgery and maintain a stable weight after surgery to ensure the best results.

Should I Gain Weight before Surgery?

Gaining weight before the surgery in order to increase the amount of fat available for transfer is not necessary, and can even be counterproductive. Gaining weight can increase the risk of complications during surgery, and can affect the final results. Additionally, it may not be possible to gain enough weight to achieve the desired results, and the results of the surgery may not be as satisfactory.
