If You Are Unhappy with the Results of a Brazilian Butt Lift, You May Need a BBL Revision

Published on May 18, 2020

The Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that is fast gaining popularity everywhere. It has to do with transferring fat that results in a fuller backside. It offers a more permanent solution than exercise to get a shapely behind.

It is performed under general anesthesia and involves liposuction to remove fat to be transferred. In the case of a smaller amount of fat to be transferred, it may be done under a local anesthetic too. The removed fat is then processed and injected into the area so that a more rounded appearance is achieved.

The Revision

You may not be satisfied with a previous Brazilian butt lift for a number of reasons – you may not like the contour or shape that has been achieved, healing may not have been great, you may have found “lumps” or “dents” in your skin, or rippling effects on the skin. Sometimes, a revision may be done if a patient is too thin and doesn’t have much fat to be put into the area of the butt region.

If you have had an unsatisfactory BBL from another surgeon and are interested in a revision of the procedure, you will have to wait at least six months (maybe a year) before it’s done. This time period is necessary to see how the fat transferred in the original procedure has developed and survived to its appropriate extent. Scar tissue after liposuction needs enough time to heal as well. This is imperative so that the results of the revision surgery are as precise as possible.
