If you’re considering a Brazilian butt lift, it’s a good idea to be considering every aspect of your procedure. When making an incredible investment in yourself like the BBL, you should make sure you get the most out of it. As with any investment, it’s essential to look at the long-term returns and ensure you’ll still be enjoying the benefits for years to come. If you’re curious about what your BBL will look like in the far future, your first step is a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Paul Angelchik. Here’s a quick guide to BBL results and what you can expect from the long term.

Is a BBL Permanent?

It’s difficult to say that any plastic surgery procedure is permanent because there are a variety of factors that can change over time. But because of the nature of fat transfer procedures like BBL, permanent results are theoretically possible once your fat cells establish a new blood supply. However, one factor that can change over time is your weight. Gaining or losing weight can cause even transplanted fat cells to expand or shrink, so maintaining a healthy and stable weight is one of the best ways to ensure your results are long-lasting.

Do BBL Results Have to “Settle In?”

It’s a normal occurrence for BBL results to look “fluffier” during the first 3-6 months. This occurs because of factors like swelling and the fact that the fat cells haven’t “settled in” to their new home. Over time, the body will begin to absorb around 30-50% of the transferred fat that doesn’t survive the transfer process. Dr. Angelchik will account for this process during surgery, meaning your initial results can seem more noticeable than you might have wanted. But over time, your results will change and stabilize, eventually achieving your ideal look.

Do BBL Results Depend on Aftercare?

Absolutely – aftercare is one of the most important steps in your BBL since it’s designed to help as many fat cells as possible survive the process. Some of the most important steps in your BBL recovery include avoiding sitting down, lower body exercises, and tight clothing. Taking every step to ensure the fat cells aren’t compromised is the most effective way to achieve the results you and your plastic surgeon intended.

How Do BBL Results Look in 10 Years?

Provided that you follow aftercare instructions and maintain your results with a varied diet and consistent exercise, your BBL results will remain the same as they were after the 3-6 month mark. This is because the transferred fat cells will act the same as any other fat on the body, once it has settled into its new location. The fact that the BBL can produce at least 10 years of results makes it one of the most attractive and cost-effective ways to enhance your figure.
