If you’re looking in the mirror wishing you had a full, round booty, you’re not alone! In fact, in recent years the number of people choosing to enhance their butt through plastic surgery has skyrocketed, making the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) one of the fastest growing procedures in America. Contrary to popular belief, most people are interested in getting a BBL not so much to get a bigger butt (although that is true for some!) but more to improve the overall shape of their derriere. Some women have naturally flat or rectangular butts, and wish they had a curvier physique. Others are bothered by stubborn hip dips, or indentations on the outside of the hips that won’t fill in despite special workout that target the butt and hips. No matter the reason, sometimes all the sumo squats in the world still can’t produce the best booty, leaving many patients feeling frustrated. Fortunately, the Brazilian Butt Lift offers a highly effective and safe surgical solution for women looking to finally get the butt of their dreams! This blog post will briefly explain how this procedure is performed as well as answer one common question women have who are considering this procedure, “Can a BBL fix my hip dips?”
Part of the reason the BBL has become so popular that it performs double duty, using a magical combination of liposuction and fat transfer to literally take fat from where you don’t want it and put it where you do! First, precisely targeted liposuction is used to gently remove unwanted fat. When Dr. Temmen meets with her patients, she goes over with them in detail the problem areas they want her to target, such as fat on the belly, thighs, or love handles. She can then pay extra attention to these areas on the OR to ensure these fat deposits are melted away. The power and precision of liposuction allows Dr. Temmen to gently accentuate the patient’s natural curves, sculpting the body into an attractive hourglass. After the body has been slimmed and shaped using liposuction, the fat that was removed is purified and prepared for transfer. Special cannulas are then used to inject the fat into the desired aspects of the buttocks. This process is precisely tailored to the patient’s desires to add fat wherever she wants it. Some patients are satisfied with their overall shape but want to increase their volume. Others are bothered by a flat butt, and desire fat injection to increase projection in the back. Many others simply want an all-around smoother, rounder shape that will look great in their favorite pair of jeans or bikini bottoms. No matter the goal, the beauty of the BBL is it can be perfectly customized to meet the patient’s needs by a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Traci Temmen.
Finally, let’s return to the question raised at the beginning of this post: What about hip dips? Can those be corrected during a BBL too? The answer to this question is yes, even those stubborn hip dips that can be corrected during a BBL! This is accomplished by injecting some of the fat taken during liposuction into the depressions on the sides of the hips to create a smooth, natural-looking contour from hip to leg. Even though this is a relatively small part of the procedure, it has a big effect on overall appearance because it is the silhouette people see when they look in the mirror. It means a lot to patients to finally see those indentations filled in, helping them feel beautiful and confident.
