Male Brazilian Buttock Lift in Orange County & Bakersfield, CA
Male BBL in Bakersfield, CA
Many people are quick to assume that Brazilian buttock lifts, or BBLs, are solely intended for women. This is not the case, as male BBL surgery is actually quite common and a popular choice for men looking to enhance their buttock region. If you’ve exhausted your efforts through working out and dieting but cannot seem to achieve your desired shape, male BBL may be the surgery for you. At Silhouette Plastic Surgery Institute, our Orange County plastic surgeon Dr. Hootan Daneshmand routinely performs BBLs for both men and women. Here, he will provide you with a basic understanding of the procedure and what you can expect from it.
What is a BBL?
A Brazilian buttock lift, more widely known as BBL surgery in California, is a procedure that uses a combination of liposuction and fat grafting to enhance the volume, curves, and overall lift of the butt. BBLs are increasingly growing in popularity as a round, plump bottom is universally desired in today’s society.
In a BBL procedure, your surgeon will remove fat from other areas of the body (thighs, stomach, arms, etc.) via liposuction. The harvested fat is then purified before it reenters the body. The prepared fat is then injected into specific areas of the buttocks to create a fuller, more rounded appearance.
This procedure offers a more natural enhancement than other methods of buttock surgery, such as implants. Not only do the results tend to appear more natural, but because BBLs work by redistributing your own fat, you aren’t putting any foreign substances into your body.
How Much Does a Male BBL Cost?
As with most surgical procedures, the exact cost of a male BBL depends on a variety of factors.
To get the best estimate, one must take into account the extent of their procedure, the geographic location in which the surgery takes place, and physician fees, among other things.
You must also consider the fact that you’re essentially getting a complete body resculpting with this type of procedure. Because it requires fat to be liposuctioned from other areas of the body, it isn’t just the buttocks being treated. Fees for liposuction from specific areas of the body as well as fees for the micro fat injections will need to be included in the final price of the procedure. In addition, you must also take into account the fees related to anesthesia, post-op visits, facility costs, and required postoperative garments.
With all things considered, you may be looking at an average of $10,000 to $15,000. Your surgeon will be able to give you the best estimate based on your individual circumstances upon meeting for a consultation.
How Long Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Last?
Because your butt is being enhanced with your own natural fat, it is more likely to stand the test of time than butt implants would. You can expect the results of a male BBL to last for several years and possibly several decades. The lifespan of a BBL varies from person to person and relies heavily on how well you treat your new bottom during its recovery process.
Is a Male BBL Permanent?
A male receiving BBL surgery can expect to retain anywhere from 60 to 80 percent of the fat that is initially transferred into the butt. The rest will be reabsorbed by the body over time. The results you see immediately after surgery and in the weeks following are not permanent. At around 90 days post-op, your butt will finally stabilize into its new shape and size.
The procedure itself is semi-permanent as opposed to permanent. As your body responds to the natural aging process and normal weight fluctuations, so too will your buttocks. Depending on the precautions you take during your recovery and the lifestyle you maintain in the time following, your BBL may last several years to even decades. To increase the longevity of your BBL and maintain its results, it is important to keep up with a healthy lifestyle and avoid extreme changes in your weight.
What are the Side Effects of BBL?
Though BBLs pose significantly less risk than that of a butt implant surgery, it is still a surgical procedure at the end of the day. And with all surgery comes certain risks, side effects, and potential complications.
Some of these side effects may include:
- Fat embolism in the heart or lungs
- Lumps under the skin around injected or liposuction areas
Having an experienced, qualified surgeon like Dr. Daneshmand perform your procedure can help minimize these risks significantly.
Will a BBL Get Rid of Cellulite?
Though it is not guaranteed, many patients who receive a Brazilian buttocks lift notice the reduction of cellulite on their butt and thighs. Because the procedure essentially lifts and tightens the rear, it can result in a smoother, firmer, and much more toned appearance. The procedure is not intended to treat cellulite, but it is not uncommon for patients to notice the dimples on their thighs and bottom appear minimized.
Am I a Good Candidate for Male BBL?
Many different patients find satisfaction and confidence following male BBL surgery. However, like every surgery, it may not be the ideal choice for every candidate. Some patients benefit much more from BBL surgery than others.
You may be a good candidate for a male BBL if you meet the following criteria. You:
- Feel your buttocks is too small
- Seek to increase the fullness and/or projection of your butt
- Are generally active and healthy
- Have enough fat on other areas of the body to be redistributed
- Do not have an underlying medical condition that might interfere with a BBL surgery
- Are able to allow yourself the time and rest needed for recovery
- Have realistic expectations
