Differences Between the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) and the New Non-Invasive Butt Lift

Women who desire a youthful and rounded backside can have a butt lift procedure. The Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC (BBL) and the non-Invasive butt lift are two options that leading plastic surgery practices offer to help women achieve this goal. If you are considering buttock enhancement, it is important to understand the difference between these options.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) and the New Non-Invasive Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

Fat transfer buttock augmentation or BBL allows patients to achieve two goals at the same time – it removes excess fat from other parts of the body such as thighs and relocates it in the butt area. Liposuction and fat transfer are the procedures involved. Unwanted fat is removed from areas such as the hips, stomach and thighs. This fat is then purified and then injected into the buttocks to achieve the desired results. Traditional BBL is performed using general anesthesia.

BBLULA vs Traditional BBL

BBL under general anesthesia can have grave consequences if fat is injected into and below the muscle either intentionally or unintentionally. This led to the development of a butt lift technique that uses local anesthesia. Brazilian butt lift under local anesthesia (BBLULA) was invented by bodySCULPT plastic surgeons Dr.Christopher Chia and Dr.Spero Theodorou. Unlike traditional BBL, this is a safer, less invasive option that requires only local anesthesia.

BBLULA is a comparatively short procedure in which patients remain awake throughout the procedure. It also helps them heal faster and get back quickly to their normal routine. BBLULA comes with less complications and risks for the patient.

Benefits of BBL

  • Provides more natural-looking results than buttock implants
  • Removes unwanted fat from other parts of your body
  • Sculpts the fat donor sites, improving overall body contour
  • Minimal downtime
  • No hospital stay
  • Minimal scarring and discomfort
  • As it uses your own tissue, chance for rejection are reduced

To be a good candidate, you should be in good health, and have the appropriate body type to harvest enough fat. Recovery time depends on individual considerations and following your surgeon’s instructions carefully during the recovery period is important for smooth healing and optimal outcomes.

Non-invasive Butt Lift using Evolve Tone

The new non-Invasive butt lift does not require anesthesia, liposuction or downtime. The procedure is performed using InMode Evolve Tone, a next generation body contouring modality. It utilizes radiofrequency energy for fat reduction, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening, and provides great results. It will not give you the dramatic results that fat transfer or implants, but can provide unique lifting and tightening of the buttock area.
