A Brazilian Butt Lift is a transformative cosmetic procedure designed to give patients the bottom they’ve always wanted. This procedure has become one of the fastest-growing cosmetic surgeries in the nation. Because this procedure is done through fat grafting, it is the preferred method compared to butt implants. During a BBL, fat is extracted through Liposuction from donor areas such as the stomach, thighs, or hips and injected into the patient’s buttocks for a more voluminous backside. Because Liposuction is being performed on a different body area, weight gain/loss will affect the results in different ways.
Losing Weight After BBL
It is imperative for patients to remain at a stable weight after a BBL to maintain their plastic surgery results. A small amount of weight loss won’t drastically alter your results. And because the transferred fat cells are fragile post-operation, all dieting should also be avoided. Patients need to know that the transferred fat will react the same as it did before being transferred. Therefore, if you lose weight, the fat cells in your buttocks will also decrease in volume.
Gaining Weight After BBL
Like with losing weight, if you gain a small amount of weight, there will be no dramatic change in the appearance of the buttocks. However, if you do gain weight, the transferred fat cells will respond accordingly. If you gain bodyweight, then the buttocks will also increase in size and volume. While this may seem like a good idea because your booty will be getting bigger, keep in mind that other parts of your body will also gain weight, including your face.
