The advantages and benefits of BBL
Gluteal lipo-transfer is a unique-procedure, because it gives your buttocks a more attractive shape and contour using fat derived from your own body.
Since the fat that is eventually grafted into your bottom is extracted from other areas of your body, gluteal lipo-injection provides an ideal solution for people who want well-formed buttocks, but also want to refine their middle section with liposuction. In addition, because the fat used for injection is your own tissue, there is no risk of allergic reaction or rejection.
Of course, it is also important to note that you need enough fat cells to achieve the desired results. Those who don’t have enough fat may need to consider a traditional gluteoplasty instead.
Here are some of the main benefits of gluteal lipo-injection surgery:
- Improved or restored volume to the buttocks.
- Lifting of the lower portion of the buttocks.
- Better overall shape and body contour.
- Cellulite reduction.
- Clothes look and fit you better.
- Improved body proportions.
- Highly customizable surgery.
One of the most important drawbacks of implants is that they are molded to specific sizes and volumes. This creates limitations with respect to the range of available options. However, a gluteal lipo-injection offers much more freedom in terms of controlling the exact shape and size of your new buttocks.
This procedure is fully customizable for your goals, so you can get the curves you want without having to settle for a “standardized” size and shape.
Once the fat has been removed, purified and ready for injection, your Plastic Surgeon in Bogota can carefully control the amount that is injected, using enough to allow the fullness and shape you want, exactly where you want it.
The recovery period for the buttock enlargement procedure with your own fat can last several months, but compared to the long-lasting results, it is very short. As fat settles and forges connections to your body’s blood supply, complete results begin to reveal.
Once you’ve fully recovered, you’ll be able to enjoy your new buttocks in the coming years. In fact, many patients have found that with maintaining a healthy lifestyle, their results are permanent. However, aging and weight fluctuations can negatively affect results.
