Can A BBL Reduce The Appearance Of Cellulite?
With the increasing popularity of a curvy figure and rounded butt, which is difficult to attain through diet and exercise alone, more and more men and women are turning to cosmetic surgery to achieve the look each year. While butt implants can certainly provide stunning and dramatic results, many patients prefer a more natural approach to butt augmentation. For these men and women, Brazilian butt lift surgery may be a fantastic solution for getting the shapely rear end they want without the use of synthetic implants. Aside from simply resculpting the butt, BBL surgery has a number of additional exciting benefits. The expert team at Jerry Chidester, MD Plastic & Hand Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jerry Chidester, aka “Dr. Chiddy,” is proud to offer Brazilian butt lift surgery in Draper, UT. Discover how BBL surgery can transform your look, and learn what additional benefits it may provide.
What is BBL surgery?
Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, is a body contouring procedure that involves a fat transfer to the buttocks. It is important for patients to understand that BBL is not a true lift procedure – like a breast lift – and is not designed to actually lift the buttocks through skin removal. Instead, Brazilian butt lift utilizes a patient’s own fat from elsewhere in their body to augment, reshape, and resculpt a more appealing butt shape. For patients with a sagging butt, loose skin, or significant wrinkles, a traditional butt lift with skin removal may be more appropriate.
Who is a good candidate for Brazilian butt lift in Salt Lake City, UT?
BBL is popular among men and women who are interested in achieving a plump, round, curvy backside but aren’t seeing adequate results despite consistent diet and appropriate exercise routines. Some of the factors that make it tremendously difficult – if not impossible – to achieve this shapely look through traditional methods include:
- Weight fluctuation
- Natural body type
For patients with a deflated butt who prefer not to have silicone glute implants placed, the more natural approach of BBL surgery may be an ideal alternative. However, ideal candidates for BBL must have enough excess fat elsewhere on their body to be harvested and transferred to the butt. In most cases, this fat is taken from the hips, thighs, or abdomen. Exceptionally thin patients, or those with a low body fat percentage, may be better suited to gluteal implants if Dr. Chiddy does not feel there is enough extra fat to harvest. Finally, patients considering BBL surgery should be at a healthy, stable weight and be committed to maintaining that weight. Future weight fluctuations can significantly impact a patient’s results, as weight gain and loss can cause the transferred fat cells to swell or shrink, just as they do in other areas of the body.
Does BBL help with cellulite?
Many men and women struggle with dimpled skin on their buttocks and wonder if BBL can help improve the appearance of cellulite. For some BBL patients, the added fat does result in a smoother, firmer, more toned look and visibly reduces some amount of cellulite and dimples. Furthermore, as the butt is filled out, cellulite on the thighs may also appear somewhat smoother. However, it is important that patients have realistic expectations for Brazilian butt lift surgery and understand that the procedure is not specifically designed as a cellulite treatment. With that said, there are certainly a number of additional advantages and benefits of BBL beyond simply augmenting your rear end, including:
- Soft, natural look and feel compared to butt implants
- Low risk of infection or adverse reaction with the use of natural fat
- Trimmer contour in the areas where liposuction fat harvesting is performed
- Clothing fits better
- Relatively quick results (4 – 6 weeks)
- More youthful physique
- Boosted self-confidence
If your primary concern is cellulite, stubborn fat, or loose, wrinkled skin, talk to Dr. Chiddy about what alternative or complementary procedures may be able to help you achieve your individual goals.
