BBL surgery cost in South Africa (Brazilian Butt Lift In South Africa )

South African ladies are naturally endowed with big backside no doubt but not all of them. South African women that intend to have large buttocks via surgery almost always go for Brazilian Butt Lift surgery (a form of buttocks enlargement surgery)

In this article, I intend to tell you the price or cost of BBL in South Africa, Capetown and Johannesburg but before then, it is important for you to know some things about the BBL you intend to go for.

What is Brazilian Butt Lift?

In a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), your surgeon takes fat from where you don’t want it and transfers it to your buttocks to give you that envy-worthy rear view. Additional liposuction is often done around and near the buttocks to improve contouring and the appearance of lifting.

This procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis. The Brazilian Buttocks Augmentation procedure may take approximately 90 minutes to four hours, based on multiple factors, including the amount of fat removed, how many areas to be treated, and the patient’s desired size/shape of the buttocks. Tumescent Liposculpturing and autologous (your own) fat transfer to the buttocks are the most common technique performed.

How long do Brazilian Butt Lift results last?

As long as it is done by our experienced BBL surgeons, the outcome should be permanent. Once the fatty tissue “takes”, meaning that it has re-established a blood supply, there should be no reason it would “melt away”. Having said that, if a patient were to lose a major amount of weight, the buttocks will get smaller (just as the rest of the body would), but the SHAPE of the butt and its relationship to the patient’s other body contours should be maintained.

Can I sit down after Brazilian Butt Lift surgery?

It is VERY important not to sit directly on the buttocks. At the time of your preoperative visit, you will be taught how to avoid compromising your outcome while still being able to rest.

How soon will I be able to see my Brazilian Butt Lift results?

The benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift can be seen right away- in other words, even though there will be some swelling as a result of the procedure, the reduced contour in the areas suctioned and the improved shape and size of the backside will be evident the day after surgery.

As this swelling goes away over the first month or two, you will get a better idea of the final outcome, with final result seen at about 8 weeks to 3 months.

How should I maintain my new Brazilian Butt Lift?

Maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle would be all that is necessary. Exercise, of course is an important component, but aggressive dieting and exercise will not be necessary.
