Influenced by celebrity selfies on Instagram and other social media platforms, many women want a well-rounded, prominent derriere. Exercises that target the glutes can help shape up the butt, but may not provide dramatic transformation they want. Plastic surgery offers women two options to attain their goals: butt implants and the Brazilian butt lift (BBL), a procedure that uses the patient’s own fat for the enhancement. Today, leading NYC plastic surgery practices offer another alternative – the “Brazilian butt lift 360”, a minimally-invasive procedure that combines the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) with Lipo 360° to provide that coveted hourglass figure.
The Brazilian butt lift in NYC is the ideal option for women who don’t want invasive surgery to insert implants. BBL, as this procedure is also called, uses your own fat and provides natural looking results. Another significant benefit of BBL is that it transfers excess fat removed via liposuction from other areas of the body to the buttocks, which improves the contour of the donor sites. BBL 360 also involves the same approach, but with a slight difference as to how liposuction is used. In BBL 360, liposuction is performed to contour and reshape your midsection, 360 degrees around. The outcome is an hourglass figure with a waist at least a third smaller than the hips – the golden hip to waist ratio.
BBL360 is an ideal option for women looking to achieve a trim, well-shaped midsection and buttocks that are shapely and rounded. This safe and relatively short wide-awake procedure involves harvesting unwanted fat areas from the abdominal area and transplanting it in the gluteal region. However, to benefit from BBL 360, you need to be a good candidate for the procedure. Individuals considering this procedure should be carefully evaluated by a reliable plastic surgeon to ensure that their overall body contouring objectives can be achieved. The criteria that a Brazilian butt lift 360 candidate should meet are as follows:
- Be over 18 years of age
- Have excess fat deposits in the waist and abdominal area
- Have good skin elasticity
- Be in good health
- Have realistic expectations
Importantly, patients must understand that lipo 360 is not a weight loss surgery.
BBL 360 is performed under local anesthesia, involves little downtime, and provides attractive, natural-looking outcomes. The steps involved in the procedure are as follows:
- 360-degree liposuction is performed to harvest the fat from the entire midsection. Removing these stubborn fat results in a well-contoured, curvier figure from every angle.
- The harvested fat is purified.
- The purified fat is injected into the buttocks to enhance the shape and symmetry of the butt and hip areas.
Liposuction is performed using minimally-invasive technologies such as Smartlipo Triplex (laser-assisted), VASER Ultrasound technology, and BodyTite™ (radiofrequency-assisted). However, patients may experience some redness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort after the procedure which will subside in few days. Wearing a compression garment for a few weeks will be recommended by your plastic surgeon as it will help reduce the swelling faster and maintain healing. The surgeon also may advise you to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for two weeks. Most patients can return to work in 10 -14 days.
