How to Choose the Right BBL Surgeon By Milan Lombardi MD on February 20, 2024

Brazilian butt lifts are a well-known procedure, and many people want to learn more about the different ways they can reshape their backside in a more pleasing way. However, just because the procedure is popular does not mean that all information about it can be found in a single Google search before visiting your doctor. It is important to know how to choose the right BBL surgeon so that you know what to expect before, during, and after this process.

How to Choose the Right BBL Surgeon

Like all plastic surgery procedures, you should be able to have all your questions answered before you begin. Below are some of the best questions to ask your surgeon before BBL surgery, courtesy of your local Synergy MD professionals.

What Is the Surgery Process Like?

Depending on the size of your buttocks and your implant needs, the surgery can take a few hours to complete. It is typically an outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home on the same day of your surgery. Once you are awakened from anesthesia, your condition and medical history will be evaluated. You will then be transferred to our recovery area for as long as you need. You will still feel groggy and take pain medication so another adult must drive you home. Patients cannot drive home after a Brazilian butt lift, but may arrange a ride with a trusted friend or family member.

What Type of Butt Lift Is Best for My Body Type?

Many people imagine that their surgeon will give them a huge backside no matter what kind of improvement they are looking for. Thankfully, this is not always the case. Because every individual is different, your surgeon will have to help you decide the right size for your butt lift implants. You want to look natural with a lift that will last you a long time, and your surgeon can help you with that.

Are You Experienced in BBL Surgeries?

For such an important operation, you should never trust an inexperienced surgeon. It is important to choose a skilled surgeon who can perform several Brazilian butt lifts per week. Some plastic surgeons can perform multiple types of procedures daily. Some are specialists in one type or another of surgery, but may not necessarily have the experience you are looking for.

Ask your surgeon how many Brazilian lifts they perform in a week. This will help you gauge their experience with the procedure. Another helpful tip is to find out if your surgeon is certified by a major plastic surgery organization, such as the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Is Recovery Difficult?

You might feel some discomfort for the first few days after your surgery. This will gradually diminish as the swelling decreases. During the first few days of your recovery, your doctor will prescribe pain medication to ease this discomfort. It can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months before you feel well enough to return to your normal daily activities. You don't need to wait long to see the results, as many patients are able to notice the results of their BBL right away. Be sure to consult with our Synergy MD consultation team, as well as your doctor, for additional instructions on how to recover from your Brazilian butt lift.

Is a BBL Right for Me?

If you have been working on ways to strengthen and boost your backside without seeing any results, you might need some extra help. Brazilian butt lifts utilize a number of techniques, including natural fat harvesting and custom-made implants. As long as you are in good overall health and you have realistic expectations about your results, you are likely a good candidate for the procedure. A BBL can help you get rid of wrinkling and sagging skin while boosting fat so it stays upright and perky in all the right places.
