What Are Potential Risks for Brazilian Butt Lift

Home / What Are Potential Risks for Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is so popular because it enables your plastic surgeon to transform your entire shape. Liposuction is performed over several areas depending on the individual patient needs, but typically of the flanks, abdomen, back and thighs.

Patients typically see a dramatic change the next day, as the areas that have been liposuctioned will improve the entire shape of the patient. The buttock is swollen and bruised from the procedure but this is normal after any surgical procedure.

The Brazilian Butt Lift is like any surgical procedures it does have risks and that is why you need to make sure that your procedure is performed by a board certified plastic surgeon at an accredited surgery center.

The most common risk after a Brazilian butt lift are infection and fat necrosis. Patients are given antibiotics at the time of surgery to decrease the risk of infection. Fat necrosis is a risk that is unique to fat transfer. The beauty of the procedure is that it uses your own fat. However the fat has to become incorporated. Occasionally some of the fat will not and you can get a hard spot that is easily treated.

I hope this helps.
