If you’ve been considering getting a BBL-type procedure or a butt augmentation, you are likely curious about how long you can expect the results of the procedure to last.
Common ‘BBL’ Types
Butt augmentations are becoming more popular, and each type of BBL’s hold their own sets of benefits and long-lasting results. Here are some of the most common treatments and how long the results normally last for:
Dermal Fillers: 2-5 Years
Sculptra is a dermal filler that is used to plump up the skin owing to natural volume loss as people age. The filler is most often used to treat face wrinkles, but it may also be used with a Brazilian buttlift to increase volume. Because dermal fillers are only temporary, this sort of therapy would likely only last up to a year before requiring a follow-up treatment. If you’re using it in conjunction with a surgical procedure, the chances are that they might last longer than just a year but this is solely based on the patient’s recovery period.
Surgical BBL With Implants: 10 Years
Butt implants made of silicone are another common BBL treatment. This treatment entails the placement of silicone implants in your buttocks, as the name implies. Although the two procedures are occasionally done simultaneously, it is substantially more invasive than the Brazilian butt lift. Because silicone implants have a high chance of dislodging over time, you will almost certainly need to have the operation done again in the future.
Skinny BBL With Liposuction: 4-6 Years
If you have extra fat reserves in your gluteal region, a surgeon may consider removing them to give you a more round appearance. With this procedure the fat is taken from undesired regions of the body and moved to the buttocks. If taken care of properly, these results can last up to decades.
When to Expect Results
Results will vary based on the type of treatment you’ve received. Once the edema has subsided and the compression garments have been removed, you will start to notice the benefits which are normally around five to six weeks post-surgery. However, the full effects of the surgery may not be seen for up to a year following the procedure.
How Long Do The Results Last?
The effects and results of a BBL or butt augmentation will differ from patient to patient.
A patient should anticipate being left with 60-80 percent of the fat transplanted to the buttocks during the lifespan of their BBL. Following the BBL procedure, your buttocks will go through a few stages before settling in form and size about ninety days after surgery.
Your buttocks will lose up to 40% of its original volume in the first two weeks following the treatment. This is typical, and it’s often overfilled to compensate for it in the first place. Following that, your butt starts to rejuvenate and develop new fat cells, resulting in an increase in volume. Between three and six months after the procedure, the remaining fat that was injected during the procedure settles down into its semi-permanent state.
Depending on how carefully you manage your buttocks throughout the healing period, you might anticipate the benefits of a BBL to last for many years. If you treat your BBL in a manner that optimizes your results, it can last for up to a decade.
Is a Brazilian Butt Lift A Long-Term Procedure?
Since the nature of your fat is only semi-permanent, this is a semi-permanent surgery. Your butt will alter over time as a result of the natural aging process, whether you gain or lose significant weight, and your general diet.
Maintain an active and healthy lifestyle without making drastic weight changes for the greatest BBL outcomes. Making simple yet effective changes to your routine can help maintain those results and ensure that you can enjoy your results for a very long time.
Finding Out Which BBL Is Right For You Long-Term
The duration of a BBL, like any other surgery, varies greatly from patient to patient and depends on the kind of therapy or treatment chosen. Some individuals absorb more of the fat that is injected than others. Healing times differ as well. We advocate working with a competent cosmetic surgeon and a trained medical team to maximize your chances of exceptional outcomes and a quick recovery.
Whether you choose for injectables or cosmetic surgery, your plastic surgeon will be able to tell you precisely what you need to know. They not only will provide you with a timeframe of how long you can expect your results to last but they can also provide you with healthy tips for maintaining your results for longer!
