Q: “How much fat can you inject into each buttock?”
A: We are often asked by our patients how much fat we can safely graft into the buttocks. The amount of fat we’re able to inject into the buttocks will depend mostly on the amount of viable fat that’s available to harvest on the patient. We’re capable of grafting up to 500 to 1,000 cubic centimeters of processed fat into each buttock, provided that amount is available for harvest from other areas on the patient’s body. The specific amount of fat we graft into your buttock area will be determined based on your body composition as well as your goals for your butt lift surgery.
Q: “How long does a Brazilian Butt Lift last?”
A: When all of the correct recovery procedures are properly taken, a Brazilian butt lift should provide you with permanent results that last for the rest of your lifetime. The key to making sure that as much fat as possible survives and is retained where you want it is staying committed to your post-operation recovery in order to further increase the longevity of the fat cells.
Q: “I’ve heard BBLs are dangerous and painful. Is this true?”
A: Any surgery is dangerous, but in the hands of a professional, your risks are minimized. When you trust your health and appearance to Dr. Zannis and his team, you can rest assured that you will be taken care of by a dedicated staff that is committed to making you feel as safe and comfortable as possible before, during, and after your surgery.
Q: “Why should I choose a BBL over butt implants?”
A: Unlike implants that are manufactured from synthetic, man-made materials, a Brazilian butt lift uses your body’s natural fat deposits to reshape and lift the buttocks. Not only is a BBL procedure a more natural alternative to butt implants, but it also doesn’t come with the risk of capsular contracture. Capsular contracture is what happens when the scar tissue around the implant hardens, which can lead to problems that require expensive revision surgery.
Q: “How much does a BBL cost?”
A: The cost of a Brazilian butt lift will vary based on your specific cosmetic goals. If you’re interested in having this procedure done at our facility, then we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us. Not only will we walk you through the complete process, but we’ll also be happy to answer any questions you may have about the cost of your specific procedure.
