BBL after 10 years

BBL After 10 Years

Before we discuss the BBL after 10 years, let’s look at how it has evolved over the years. The BBL has become one of the most popular cosmetic operations in the past several years. This technique, also known as Brazillian Butt Lift, is when fat is utilized during VASER high definition liposuction to improve the shape and projection of the buttocks. More and more, fat transfer is replacing implants as it gives surgeons the opportunity to customize the patient’s results and recovery is faster and simpler. Many prominent figures have had a Brazilian Butt Lift, causing it to soar in popularity. You most likely know who we’re talking about: Kim Kardashian, Cardi B, and Jennifer Lopez, to name a few. It’s challenging to get the increased shapeliness by diet and exercise alone. Without BBL surgery, having that result may not even be possible. 

People often ask if their BBL will look the same in ten years. I spoke at the World Association of Gluteal Surgeons in Miami in May of 2022 on the topic of long-term BBLs and the trends we are seeing as surgeons. This is a question as a board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon I am frequently asked by patients considering the BBL procedure.

The Way BBL Works 

A BBL, modest or more prominent, begins with VASER high definition liposuction, which allows the removal of more healthy fat than other types of liposuction. The fat is liquified with ultrasonic technology, removed gently, and purified before being transplanted into the body. A BBL boosts gluteal volume and, if done artistically, defines the buttock curve and improves lift. The goal is to make the patient’s shape memorable. Combined with waistline snatching, and rounding out the perfect hip shape, the BBL creates a real wow factor!

The BBL After 10 YearsLong-Lasting Results 

In my career, I have done almost 18,000 VASER high-definition liposuction surgeries and invented a method for fat preservation that ensures maximum retention once the fat is implanted. More and more women and men come to see me for a consultation that adds a BBL to their surgical plan for this reason alone.

So the main issue is, do the BBL results last? The answer is yes if done correctly by the surgeon. That means: 

  • The optimal method of liposuction is used. For example, laser lipo uses heat and can damage fat, whereas VASER uses ultrasound energy which is far more gentle for preserving fat cells as we suction it
  • Transplantation of maximum amount of healthy fat which establishes blood supply to nourish the newly transplanted fat
  • The surgeon does not “overfill” the gluteal area causing the body to absorb more fat, and this can be a safety issue as well
  • You choose an experienced surgeon who has done many BBLs 
  • Following your doctor’s aftercare instructions. This critical step has no shortcut.
  • You maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight 

Using your fat allows the body to adjust naturally, take the newly located healthy fat and create a new blood supply to support the area. Some of the fat cells will not be viable, and the body’s lymphatic system will flush those cells. You can see why it’s so essential to use an experienced surgeon who puts both results and safety first and foremost.

A BBL with fat transfer is far superior to old-school butt implants. Many surgeons are removing more implants than they are putting in. Implants tend to move and create a sense of discomfort and can look misshapen. 

Of Note: some patients naturally absorb more transplanted fat than others. In that case, you may opt to have a second round or “refill” as time goes by. Although you may think “go big” and avoid the second round of fat, it’s better to revisit enlarging your BBL than overfilling. A fair number of BBL revisions we do at our office are to reduce overly large BBLs.
