Am I a Good Candidate for Butt Augmentation?
If you are a healthy non-smoker with no compromising health issues, you are likely a good candidate for a butt augmentation procedure. Whether you simply want more butt, or you are attempting to get a rounder shape to your butt, a butt augmentation procedure, sometimes accompanied by a butt lift, can help.
How Is a Butt Augmentation Procedure Performed?
A BBL takes fat from one section of your body and injects it into the buttocks. It is ideal for women who have a little extra weight, since your own fat is used for the fat transfer. It does much more than just add volume, since it involves reducing and reshaping the surrounding tissue to obtain the perfect, rounded shape.
Are the Results Permanent?
Because of the special way the fat is harvested and processed, then immediately injected, it is a permanent procedure. About 50-80% of the fat transferred survives; this survival rate is taken into account in planning the procedure.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
Recovery from a butt augmentation procedure is one of the more difficult, because you are unable to place pressure on the buttocks for approximately four weeks. That’s a month of no sitting or lying on the back. For women who choose to have this procedure, the recovery is worth it. You can see before and after pictures here.
