The form and proportions of a person’s butt are mostly controlled by their skeletal and muscular structure, as well as the body’s proclivity for fat storage. Even while a nutritious diet and a physically active lifestyle may make a person satisfied with their physique, most women are unhappy with their “flat” butt. Plastic operations are frequently used to address this issue. And the Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, is a technique for achieving the ideal butt shape.

A Brazilian butt lift, in addition to butt implants, is a popular operation for improving the appearance of the butt. A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic operation that involves gathering body fat from various regions of the body and transferring it into the buttocks to obtain the desired appearance. Liposuction and fat grafting are the two main methods used in the Brazilian butt lift.

One of the most asked questions about BBL surgery is ‘’Does weight gain/loss affect the results of the BBL surgery?’’. Changes in weight have a potential of having an impact on the results after a BBL surgery, there may occur various scenarios due to gaining or losing weight after a Brazilian Butt Lift surgery. In this article, we will be informing you about these scenarios, and things you should pay attention for the best scenario.

How Does Brazilian Butt Lift Fat Transfer Work?

A Brazilian butt lift, commonly known as a BBL, is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes your fat to improve the form and size of your buttocks. Unwanted fat cells might offer your bottom a boost, which may sound strange. Liposuction will be used to remove undesirable fatty tissue from common locations such as the hips, flanks, thighs, and stomach. It goes through a purification procedure after liposuction to ensure that only healthy fat remains. It is then carefully put back into the buttocks of a patient to increase volume and form.

As the fat that is grafted into the buttocks is organic and from the same body, the fat adapts to the are very fast. However, since the patient’s own fat is used, instead of implants, the results of the surgery are inevitably affected by changes in the body, such as weight gain or loss. 

Losing Weight After Brazilian Butt Lift

“Will my BBL results alter if I lose or gain weight?” is a typical question. Most cosmetic surgeons would advise you to be near to your desired body weight before having a Brazilian butt lift, but they also realize that some women’s weight fluctuates naturally. You won’t observe any unfavorable changes in your butt if you lose a tiny amount of weight following a Brazilian butt lift. Instead, the thinner you get, the more you’ll be able to flaunt your curves in new and intriguing ways, amplifying the benefits of your newly sculpted bottom.

However, because transplanted fat cells are fragile, it is typically suggested that patients maintain a steady, healthy body weight and do not diet soon after surgery. The transplanted fat cells will require 3–6 months to develop permanence and a sufficient supply. Patients should be aware that transplanted fat will behave similarly to other fatty tissue in the body before opting for this cosmetic operation. When a person loses weight, the volume of their buttocks decreases, which might impair their BBL outcomes. Maintain the same weight subsequently to keep the results.

There’s a reason why cosmetic surgeons advise waiting until you’re close to your goal weight before getting a Brazilian butt lift. That’s because if you lose a substantial amount of weight following a fat transfer to the buttocks, you may lose weight and volume in your buttocks as well. Furthermore, losing a considerable amount of weight alters your body’s general look, which will alter the new contours you’ve achieved with your butt lift procedure’s liposuction and fat transfer.

Gaining Weight After Brazilian Butt Lift

It’s normal for folks to have stubborn fat in their love handles, waist, or other regions that they’d like to get rid of. Subcutaneous fat localized in body areas such as the belly, hips, thighs, or upper arms is one kind of fat targeted with liposuction during a Brazilian butt lift. When patients gain or lose a lot of weight, it can have a big impact on BBL outcomes and even the donor areas of fat transfers. The transplanted fat from donor locations behaves similarly in the buttocks, so it will expand and contract in response to changes in the body’s metabolism and weight. Minor weight reduction or increase has little effect on the volume or form of BBL outcomes. However, because substantial weight changes can occur following surgery, it is typically suggested that patients maintain their target body weight.

The general contour and structure of your buttocks will not alter much if you acquire weight gradually. If you gain a lot of weight quickly, though, you should talk to your doctor to make sure your Brazilian Butt Lift results stay the same. You may notice a change in the form of your buttocks depending on the rate and amount of your weight gain.
When patients try to gain weight in places that have had liposuction, the scarring that occurs in such areas prevents them from growing as much as other areas that have not had liposuction. However, once the fat has vascularized, or vessels have developed into the fat cells, the buttocks that have had fat transfer will frequently increase following a BBL operation. When a result, as you acquire weight, your butt gets larger. The buttocks will shrink as a result of weight loss. However, the fat cells have not perished; they have simply shrunk in size. This is a reversible modification for the buttock. The fat cells get normal signals from the body after the arteries have formed into those fat cells. When the body adds weight, the volume of the buttocks grows. When the body loses weight, the volume of the buttocks decreases. That’s the difference between the influence of weight on liposuction and fat transfer for a BBL.
