How much does a BBL cost?
There is no set price for a Brazilian butt lift, even when looking at a single surgeon or practice. The cost will vary based on everything from how much fat needs to be removed and purified to the current size of your bottom. To know what yours will cost, you need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Campanile.
How do I prepare for a Brazilian butt lift?
You will be given detailed instructions on how to get ready for your procedure when you schedule it. In addition to things like stopping smoking and avoiding certain medications, you should make sure your expectations for surgery are realistic and arrange for the help you will need during your recovery period.
Is a BBL painful?
As you would expect with most surgeries, there is some degree of pain involved. How this is experienced varies a lot between individuals. However, we create a pain management plan for all our BBL patients, covering pain relief medications, compression garments and clear instructions on what to avoid to prevent injuries or increased pain.
How long is Brazilian butt lift surgery?
The exact length of the procedure will depend on how much fat is removed and placed into the buttocks, as well as on any additional procedures performed on the same day. If you are getting a BBL alone, the surgery will likely take around 3-4 hours.
Is the BBL recovery period difficult?
Assuming you have the help you need, your recovery period shouldn’t be too stressful. The hardest part of BBL recovery is avoiding sitting down for about two weeks after the procedure. Keep in mind that due to how the body reacts to surgery, you may feel a little blue those first few weeks, and this too can be a struggle. Don’t be afraid to reach out to us about any concerns you have.
Will there be scars after my Brazilian butt lift?
Yes, you should expect to have small scars from both the liposuction and the fat insertion into the buttocks. How these will look depends on how your skin heals. For some, the scars are pretty much invisible after a year, while for others, they can remain red for the long term. If you have scars on other places of your body, they should give you a good idea of what your scars from a BBL will look like.
Is a butt augmentation the same as a BBL?
No, these terms refer to two different procedures that enhance the volume of the butt. Butt augmentations rely on implants, whereas a BBL uses your own purified fat. We generally suggest a BBL over an augmentation unless the patient doesn’t have sufficient fat for transfer.
Where is the fat for a BBL harvested from?
Typically, fat is taken from the abdomen, lower back, waist, hips and thighs since these areas tend to be best for removing larger volumes of fat cells. Depending on the patient, we may need to harvest from more than one area to get the amount of fat needed.
