Brazilian Butt Lifts in DC & VA Worth the Money?

"The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) continues to grow in popularity as women across the United States have the procedure to gain a greater amount of volume in the booty. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of Brazilian butt lift procedures performed worldwide has grown by 77.6% since 2015."

Cosmetic Town says that social media has been the most significant contributing factor to the growing popularity of Brazilian butt lifts. Dr. Jules Feledy and Dr. Maiorino of Belmont Plastic Surgery in Chevy Chase, MD, and Stafford, VA, want you to understand the procedure, risks and drawbacks.

The rise in any procedure for increasing butt size has been linked to the Kardashian effect as well as other celebrities like Nicki Minaj and Jennifer posting pictures of their backside on social media sites like Instagram. Now the rest of the world is motivated to follow suit where over the last couple of years, American women have developed a love affair with shapelier buttocks.

What's Involved in a Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure?

Brazilian butt lift is portrayed as one of the best options for reshaping the derriere. Why is BBL gaining popularity? The procedure involves using your own fat to improve the size and shape of your buttocks. Brazilian butt lift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, under either general anesthesia or IV sedation with local anesthesia.

Board-certified surgeons Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino will begin by making small, inconspicuous incisions in the pre-selected area(s) from which fat is to be taken, often the abdomen, thighs, hips, or lower back. Reducing fat around your body and creating a more pleasing "framework" is what surgeons that perform BBL tout as a major positive to the procedure. Using a small specialized tube called a cannula, your surgeon will use Liposuction techniques on areas where you have excess fat to remove. Taking the fat from your own body significantly lowers rejection rates and eliminates many risks.

What Happens After the Procedure

Following a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, the buttocks will swell and bruise. Only 65 to 85 percent of the injected fat will remain while the body absorbs the rest. The swelling subsides after a few days, and rest will be recommended for at least two weeks. During that time, a compression garment may be worn for healing benefits. You can expect full recovery to take one or two months. Depending on your recovery, you can resume work after a few weeks.

What are Your Options?

Dr. Jules Feledy and Dr. Eric Maiorino are board-certified Plastic Surgeons who have years of training and experience with performing BBLs. At Belmont Plastic Surgery Center in Chevy Chase, MD, and Stafford, VA, we understand how frustrating it can be to achieve tighter, perkier buttocks through diet and exercise alone, no matter how vigorous the routine. We offer Brazilian butt lift or BBL surgery in Sacramento to help patients achieve a more "attractive" appearance when exercise has not provided ideal results.

If your flat and sagging butt is something you want to address because you feel self-conscious, you don't have to live with it. The Brazilian Butt Lift transfers unwanted fats from problem areas to areas where volume is needed. You will feel much more confident when wearing tight jeans or a bathing suit as you will have a positive self-image. Diet and exercise are great for staying healthy, but sometimes we need the help of board-certified Plastic Surgeons.
