Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does A BBL Last?
A Portland Brazilian butt lift can be considered permanent in many cases. However, age and weight fluctuations can cause the buttocks to lose or gain fat. The skin will also begin to lose elasticity. Many of these factors are unavoidable. You can help prevent them by working to maintain your weight and undergoing occasional skin tightening treatments. Some may choose to undergo another BBL later in life, but this is purely a personal choice.
Are Brazilian Butt Lifts Safe?
When BBLs first started to become popular, they came under some controversy due to a high amount of risk. However, that was several years ago and plastic surgeons have refined the techniques and surgical tools they use to increase the safety of the procedure. A Brazilian butt lift has about the same amount of risk as a tummy tuck.
What Is “Fluffing” After A BBL?
Following a BBL, the buttocks are said to start “fluffing” at a certain point after surgery. The fluffing stage can last months. It involves the skin of the buttocks stretching and growing to accommodate the new fat. This is when the results of a BBL truly start to become visible.
Where Can Fat Be Harvested From For Fat Transfer To The Buttocks?
Fat can be taken from nearly anywhere extra fat exists on the body. The most common liposuction areas during a BBL include:
Dr. Jonov will discuss the ideal liposuction areas for you during your consultation. Not only will he evaluate the amount of removable fat in those areas, but he will also look at how to obtain the ideal contours.
