Why is Brazilian Butt Lift Done?

The body structure and body size of people are generally determined by genetics. People who eat healthy and do sports regularly have healthy body weights, which also creates the size of their muscle mass. For all these reasons, even if the person is healthy and fit, the buttocks area can have a flat appearance and not a beautiful appearance, and the person feels uncomfortable.

  • Improvement of the folds in the lower half of the person’s body,
  • Decrease in the amount of fat in the buttocks, thigh and waist region,
  • A younger and more aesthetic appearance on the buttocks,

In order to have the desired appearance, the patient first chooses the doctor. Aesthetic surgical techniques are very developed in Turkey and after you decide to have surgery, you can have Brazilian Butt Lift surgery with confidence and carefree.

After the examination process, blood values are measured, imaging techniques are used, and possible complications are investigated. The more efficient the inspection process, the more successful the operation and the result of the operation process.

If the person is suitable for surgery, there should be no evidence of the disease as a result of the tests. Imaging techniques are very important.

How is Brazilian Butt Lift Done?

The BBL procedure is ideal for reshaping and enhancing the buttocks size and volume with a liposuction procedure. The Brazilian Butt Lifting procedure can be combined with the traditional liposuction, laser or Vaser liposuction procedures. The fat that can be transferred to the buttocks areas to perform the BBL procedure is the product of the liposuction techniques. Our doctors prefer to use vaser liposuction to perform the BBL procedure depending on the patient’s expectation. While meeting the doctor, the patient and doctor decide together about the liposuction techniques and the areas for liposuction.

We can divide the BBL into four steps;

  1. In the first step, our doctors remove the fat deposits from the areas that they determined before the surgery
  2. The fat which has been removed from the body will be purified and prepared for the transfer.
  3. As a third step, the doctor injects the prepared fat into the buttocks to enlarge the butt volume and improve the round shape for the buttocks.
  4. After the procedure is completed, the doctor is closing up the liposuction and BBL incisions with the stitches. Then our doctors apply the compression garment to prevent the bleeding risks.

The skin incision is made in the transitional fold from the buttocks to the lumbar region. It is in this part of the body that the scar will be barely noticeable in the future. Excess skin is excised and the entire wound is sutured with intradermal cosmetic sutures. In the future, such a scar is practically not noticeable, especially if in the early postoperative period you properly care for the scar and use special anti-scar agents.

When performing this procedure, the muscles of the buttocks are not affected and the function of the gluteal muscles is not affected in any way.

The operation is performed under general anesthesia and requires preliminary preoperative preparation. It is necessary to pass all the tests according to the list that we give you and later you will be examined by the anesthesiologist of our clinic.
