Brazilian Butt LiftBrazilian butt lift in NYC is an ideal option for women who are looking to achieve an attractive derriere. An increasing number of women are now considering BBL so that they can achieve their aesthetic goal without enduring complications associated with implants. According to an article published in Vanguard, surgeons have crowned 2017 the “year of Brazilian butt lift” due to the massive demand for the treatment. Even so, many women have certain concerns regarding the procedure. One of the common concerns among prospective patients is whether the fat injected into the buttocks would survive, and if yes, how long it will survive.

Depending on certain factors, the results of BBL surgery should be permanent. Expert surgeons say that the fat would survive long-term following a BBL and it would behave just like fat anywhere else in the body, and is permanent. But there are certain factors that determine the survivability of fat cells during the initial period after a BBL.

  • The amount of fat that survives for the long term is not 100%. That is, fat grafting NYC would require a good amount of fat in the order of several hundred CCs or even more per buttock. This is because, no matter how carefully the surgeons do it and how advanced the techniques used for fat transfer are, not all of the fat would survive. In anticipation of some of the fat that doesn’t survive, the surgeon will opt to probably overfill the buttocks with fat by a certain percentage.
  • How long the outcome of the procedure lasts depends greatly on the surgeon; he/she should be qualified and experienced in the latest advanced techniques, and should attach importance to patient goals.
  • There would be swelling from the operation itself.
  • Candidature is a must while performing BBL because this also directly affects the outcome. The ideal patient will have enough fat for harvesting, that is, excess fat in the donor sites such as the back, thighs, flanks, and abdomen.
  • Mechanical factors during the first several weeks of the operation will also affect how long the fat survives.

The patient’s commitment to postoperative recovery is most important to retain the results. Patients would be advised to use a donut pillow or inflatable pillow when they really need to sit, and sleep on their stomach or sides, and avoid sleeping on their back. This is to maximize the survivability of the fat graft, because it is in the early several weeks after the surgery the blood cells develop. Once the cells are matured after several weeks to months, the fat that has been transferred should last several years or longer.

Depending on the lifestyle led by the patient, the longevity of the results also varies. Proper diet and regular exercise are necessary to maintain a healthy weight as fluctuations in weight can alter the results. All these things come together to end up with a very dramatic early postoperative result which, with good technique and care, should result in a natural and improved shape and volume of the buttocks that lasts permanently.
