Am I A Good Candidate For Brazilian Butt Lift?Posted on December 7, 2022
Those looking to gain volume and a more youthful-looking profile may benefit from Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) surgery. This type of procedure could be the best choice for those who are unhappy with flat or sagging buttocks. A consultation prior to surgery is important, as your doctor will assess your physical goals and existing anatomy to decide if this type of procedure is right for you. During this consultation, they will explain the different factors that they take into account when determining if you are an eligible candidate for surgery.

Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates
In order to be a candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery, your surgeon will assess the following factors.
Skin Laxity: The skin on the buttocks must have enough elasticity for a successful BBL operation. If there is any major sagging of the back tissue, the outcome will not be as ideal. Conversely, if there is an excess of skin, it will most likely need to be removed as part of a traditional butt lift surgery.
Good Health: Patients undergoing BBL surgery must be in proper health to endure anesthesia and recovery. It is also a requirement to stop smoking and drinking prior to the operation and throughout the healing period to prevent any issues.
Body Fat: Brazilian butt lift is a fat grafting process that requires the extraction of fat cells from another part of the body—commonly the abdomen, sides, or thighs—via liposuction. This fat must then be processed and purified before being injected into the buttocks, with the surgeon needing a minimum of three to four times the amount of fat to be injected. Since the body may metabolize and remove the injected fat cells, this process is not suitable for those with minimal extra fat stores. Gaining weight prior to the procedure may be suggested, and other alternatives can be discussed with your surgeon.
A Brazilian butt lift is an incredibly popular operation for refining and enlarging the buttocks since it can be personalized to meet the unique needs of each person.
