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.Read More

Scarless skin tightening is a game-changer in today’s high definition body contouring arena. This is because a large subset of the population want to avoid more invasive excisional surgeries. Excisional surgeries require deeper sedation such as general anesthesia. General anesthesia requires more rigorous preoperative precautions such as blood tests and evaluation by your primary care physician to get surgical clearance. General anesthesia requires administration of inhalation anesthetics delivered through a tube that is associated with postoperative grogginess and several days of recovery.
Finally, excisional surgeries, are associated with longer incision lines that require prolonged recovery and potential for visual scarring. These side effects of more invasive surgeries deter three subsets of patients that include the older community that wants to avoid general anesthesia and more arduous recovery.
The next patient population includes younger patients who do not wish to have the stigma of a surgical incision line or cannot take time off of work. The final population involves the gentlemen who are more reserved and don’t want to share with others that have undergone cosmetic surgery and may not have the luxury to take off from work for a prolonged recovery period.Read More
