Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Permanent?

A close up of a woman's shapely booty in tight jeansThe results of a Brazilian Butt Lift are more or less permanent, but influenced by the natural changes that human fat and skin undergo. It may in fact be more accurate to describe the results as “semi-permanent.” The good news is that BBL results are long-lasting, especially for those patients who maintain an active lifestyle and stable body weight after surgery.

Here are a few ways your BBL results could be altered:

  • Some degree of fat loss is normal and expected in the months following surgery. When fat is transferred, not all of the cells survive. About 30 percent of the transferred fat cells may ultimately die and get processed out of your body. An experienced BBL surgeon understands and plans for this reduction when choosing how much fat to graft.
  • Aging will change the appearance of your butt. This butt augmentation procedure cannot stop the inevitable effect of years of gravity and of the natural aging process. As you age, you may notice a bit of sagging or another type of change that affects your buttocks area. If you work out and keep the muscles strong, you may find that you’re happy with the appearance regardless. Aging affects each of us differently, so it’s hard to say just how much it will affect your particular results.
  • The fat cells can shrink or enlarge like elsewhere on your body. The great thing about the Brazilian Butt Lift is that it uses your own natural fat cells instead of artificial butt implants. Many people love this all-natural aspect. That also means the fat will ultimately behave like other fat in your body. You may lose a lot of weight or gain a lot of weight, and subsequently notice a difference in the appearance of your buttocks, or the weight fluctuation may affect the appearance of other areas of your body.

Overall, we know that the results of a Brazilian Butt Lift are long-lasting, and that you can maintain those results with regular exercise and an active lifestyle.
