A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) for a Curvier Figure

Are you currently satisfied with your figure? Specifically, are you happy with the shape of your butt? Or, if you had it your way, would you prefer a curvier figure?

Let’s face facts: Though eating healthily and working out regularly are important, these methods don’t always provide us with the exact body that we want. Life is short. We deserve to look and feel good about ourselves. Therefore, if you want to change your body, you should. Better yet, you can! Particularly, you can change your backside. With a little bit of help, you can have the butt you’ve always wanted, the butt that makes you feel comfortable and proud.

At Livingston Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX, we offer a procedure known as the “Brazilian butt lift” to individuals who simply want to achieve a curvier figure. If this sounds like you, then keep reading. We have all the knowledge and facts to help you determine whether or not this treatment is for you.

If you suffer from a flat bottom, you are not alone. Luckily, we have a variety of options readily available to give us the look we want, such as the aforementioned Brazilian butt lift, or the BBL, offered by Dr. Livingston at his facility. This procedure injects fat taken from other areas of the body and places it into the buttocks, ultimately creating a curvier figure. The fat is taken from the thighs or abdomen via liposuction, before being processed, purified, and then injected.

Commonly, more females than males often opt for a buttock augmentation. However, it is important to note that the Brazilian butt lift procedure can be pursued by men, too. More so, an augmentation can be pursued by any of the following people:

  • Individuals who can’t achieve goals solely with diet and exercise
  • Individuals who want a more proportionate figure
  • Individuals who want a fuller or larger backside
  • Individuals who want a more sculpted backside
  • Individuals who want a curvier backside

Regardless of wants or needs following the procedure, the best patient is someone who is mentally, physically, and emotionally stable. Further, it is necessary to always have realistic expectations.

During the initial consultation, the doctor will ask various questions, assessing if the Brazilian Butt Lift is best for you, your body, and your overall goals. You will be asked about your medical history. You can also expect to receive an exam, in which your skin type and elasticity will be looked at.

Following surgery, there will be some downtime, as with many other types of cosmetic surgery. Recovery typically takes between three to four weeks, and results may take anywhere from two weeks to three months before becoming noticeable. Yet, the best part: no scarring, or very minimal scarring, which is easily obscured.

It’s routine for patients to return home the same day as surgery. Support garments will be necessary for proper healing and maximum results. Patients should know that experiencing swelling and bruising are both routine but will subside within a few weeks.

Of course, as with any type of cosmetic surgery, there is always the risk for negative side effects and/or complications. However, when the surgery is performed by a trained and educated doctor, such as Dr. Livingston, it is less likely for something to go wrong before or after the procedure. That being said, possible side effects that could occur from a Brazilian Butt Lift include the following:

  • A negative reaction to anesthesia
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Infection
  • Nerve damage
  • Asymmetry

When you follow your doctor’s instructions and adequately take care of yourself both before and after surgery, it is highly likely that the procedure will go completely routine. If you do have any sort of trouble, contact your doctor immediately for assistance. After all, at Livingston Plastic Surgery, our entire staff has one goal: complete patient satisfaction. We will more than do our part to take care of you.

If you are unhappy with the way you look, then make a change. It really is that simple. You only get one life, and you deserve to live yours completely happy, feeling confident and good about yourself. Do you want a curvier figure? Let’s get started!
