Brazilian Butt Lift FAQs
How much do you have to weigh to get a BBL?
While there is no specific weight qualification to receive a BBL, Dr. Martin and his professional medical team typically recommend patients be within 20 – 30lbs of their ideal weight. This allows Dr. Martin to have enough fat to transfer to the buttocks while also ensuring you get the contoured waist you desire.
How long does a Brazilian butt lift last?
The results of your BBL have the potential to last a lifetime, as the fat transferred to the buttocks will stay there for the long term. That being said, it’s important to remember that weight gain can disrupt the results of your BBL. Dr. Martin and his staff generally recommend patients lead a healthy and active lifestyle to maintain the results of their BBL and other body contouring procedures for years to come.
How painful is BBL surgery?
Because a BBL involves liposuction being performed on a portion of the body to harvest fat, you may experience swelling, bruising, and tenderness around your treated areas. Most patients are able to find this discomfort tolerable with pain management medications and techniques provided by Dr. Martin. He will also provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions to ensure you have a quick and comfortable recovery.
When is it safe to sit after a BBL?
Dr. Martin typically recommends patients wait about two to four weeks before sitting down or putting direct pressure on their buttocks. This allows the fat in the treated areas to heal properly and enhanced the patient’s overall results.
When can I wear jeans after a BBL?
Following your BBL, you’ll be asked to wear a compression garment at all times throughout your recovery process. This garment, which feels similar to SPANXX, reduces excess swelling and promotes healthy blood circulation for a quick and comfortable recovery. We typically recommend our patients wait at least two to three months before they wear jeans as the tight-fitted fabric may disrupt the results of their BBL if worn too soon.
