BBL AFTER 10 YEARS: WHAT TO EXPECT
If you are considering a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), it's important to understand how to maintain your results over time. Here's what you need to know:
Patient Profile The final outcome of your BBL results depend on your body type and how much fat can be transferred to your butt via liposuction. However, patients with a lower BMI can still benefit from a "skinny BBL," where less fat is transferred, but results still remain impactful in relation to their body’s proportions.
Healthy Lifestyle Maintaining a healthy weight through a balanced diet and regular exercise is crucial to long-lasting BBL results. Consider consulting with a dietician or personal trainer to help regulate your weight after surgery and maximize your BBL results.
Brazilian Butt Lift BBL Results Over Time
Week One After your BBL, you may experience side effects such as swelling, soreness, and bruising in the butt and liposuction areas. These side effects will gradually dissipate as your body heals. Your surgeon will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions and compression garments to manage swelling and contour the body.
Month One During the first month, swelling will continue to dissipate, and you should continue wearing your compression garment. Your butt may feel taut and uncomfortable as your body adjusts to the new fat grafts, but this will gradually improve, known as the "fluffing" stage.
Year One Within the first 3-6 months, your body will naturally absorb 30-50% of the injected fat, but your surgeon will have accounted for this in the amount of fat injected. After six months, you will see the full results of your BBL as swelling subsides completely.
Year Ten After ten years, you can expect to have the same desired butt from your BBL surgery if you maintain a healthy weight and avoid drastic changes.
