Butt augmentation in Iran (Brazilian butt lift and butt implants)

Cosmetic surgeries like Brazilian butt lift are increasingly becoming popular among people in many countries, including Iran. Technically known as gluteoplasty, buttock enhancement procedure is being performed in Iran using different techniques.

The three main techniques for butt augmentation in Iran are butt lift with fat transfer (fat grafting), commonly known as Brazilian butt lift or BBL, traditional butt lift, and buttocks augmentation with butt implants.

Types of buttock enhancement procedures

Each person considering a buttocks enhancement procedure have their own needs and expectations. That is why it is important to explain the difference between the main types of this procedure.

·         Brazilian butt lift (BBL)

The Brazilian buttock lift is the most popular cosmetic butt enhancement procedure, which is rapidly gaining in popularity. Often shortened to BBL, it is a fat grafting procedure that uses the excess fat of your own body to improve the fullness and contour of your buttocks.

Many people think that Brazilian butt lift is similar to the traditional butt lift (explained below) only because of the similar names they have, but in fact, they are two quite different procedures. A Brazilian butt lift involves extracting unwanted fat from other parts of your body, such as the love handles, thighs and abdomen through liposuction procedure and re-injecting it into the buttocks after purifying it using a centrifuge.

Depending on the surgeon’s techniques and your desired results, the number, depth and amount of injection is different, but as a whole, a greater number of smaller injections produces a better result. Also, since a great portion of the injected fat will be absorbed by the body over time, the surgeon injects as much fat as possible so that the final long-term result be still satisfactory for the patient.

·         Traditional butt lift

The traditional butt lift surgery is aimed at removing the excess sagging skin of the buttocks in order to tighten the area. It is recommended for those people who have a droopy butt and want to get a tighter backside with a more youthful appearance. One important point is that a traditional butt does not improve the buttocks by adding volume to them. Rather, it enhances the shape of a person’s rears by removing and lifting up the droopy skin and tissue.

It is worth noting that a Brazilian buttock lift can be done at the same time as a traditional butt lift. It means that if you wish to get rid of the droopy skin of your derriere before getting it enlarged, you can have the two procedures combined in a single surgery appointment.

·         Butt implants

The third type of buttocks enhancement procedure is augmentation with butt implants. These silicone implants are specially made to be implanted into the buttocks to make them fullers and shapelier. Butt implants are the best option for people who are unhappy with the size of their buttocks but do not have enough excess fat for a butt augmentation with fat grafting or Brazilian butt lift.

Because of the greater chance of developing complications in butt implants than Brazilian butt lift (including the possibility of malposition and infection), the latter is recommended for people with excessive fat deposits.

How is a BBL done?

There are three main steps in a Brazilian butt lift procedure:

  • Liposuction: removing fat from areas with fat deposits (abdomen, thighs, lower back, love handles, hips, etc.) through a liposuction process
  • Purification: the extracted fat is purified with a centrifuge in order to keep only the healthy fat cells
  • Injection: the purified fat is then injected into specific areas on the buttocks with a cannula to increase their volume and fullness

The procedure may last 1-4 hours, depending on how much fat needs to be transferred and from how many areas fat is removed, as well as other procedures that you one to get done at the same time.

A Brazilian buttock lift is usually an outpatient procedure without the patient having to stay in hospital overnight. A BBL surgery can be done under general or local anesthesia, depending on how many areas on the body are involved in the liposuction procedure.

How is a butt lift performed?

A traditional butt lift involves making incisions on the top of the bottom, hips, groin, or lower part of the buttocks to remove excess sagging skin, lifting up the buttocks and tightening the skin. The surgeon may also use liposuction on the so-called ‘gluteal fold’ (also called gluteal smile line) to remove the crease and create a better contour.

The incisions are then closed and stitched up and a drain may be placed to remove any excess fluid or blood. The surgical area is finally dressed and a compression garment or girdle is applied to minimize bruising and swelling and keep the buttocks in place to prevent any reshaping before complete healing.

A butt lift is typically performed under general anesthesia and lasts 2-5 hours. Butt lift may be part of a more extensive procedure called lower body lift or belt lift, which involves removing excess skin and tightening the skin of the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks altogether.

Butt implant procedure

Butt implants are placed through incisions that are made along the gluteal fold, on the top of the buttocks, or on the inner side of the buttocks, depending on which technique the surgeons is more comfortable with.

The butt implant procedure is often performed under general anesthesia. It takes 2-3 hours to complete. After the completion of the procedure, the incisions are sutured and the surgical area is bandaged and put in a compression garment. The patient can leave the hospital one hour after surgery.

Am I a candidate for Brazilian butt lift (or butt implant)?

Brazilian butt lift is a great option for people who want to have a bigger, rounder derriere without getting foreign objects into their body. BBL surgery is suitable for people who have enough fat deposits in other areas of their body. Although very thin people are not good candidates for BBL, fat stores can be found in many people even if they look slim.

Therefore, if you are too thin to be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift, consider butt implants. Also, if you have a droopy butt, you had better opt for a butt lift to get your buttocks tightened up, though you can get a BBL at the same time to add volume to your derriere.

People should also have realistic expectations about the outcome of their surgery and their recovery. Be sure to have all your questions and doubts cleared up with your surgeon during the pre-op consultation.

Before opting for one of the above-mentioned butt enhancement surgeries, make sure to consult with a physician to discuss your goals and desires. Also, the most important factor in a successful plastic surgery procedure is a qualified surgeon, so choose your surgeon with great care.

AriaMedTour’s medical consultants will help you make the best decision based on your body and your desired result. They will suggest the best plastic surgeons in Iran who are highly experienced in (Brazilian) butt lift and butt implants procedures.

Risks and complications of butt augmentation

Risks of Brazilian butt lift

The most dangerous complication of a BBL procedure is fat embolism, a fatal condition caused by fat particles passing into the bloodstream and blocking the blood flow.

Other potential complications of a Brazilian buttock lift are bruising, stretch marks, infection, blood clots, bleeding, deep vein thrombosis, fat and tissue necrosis, and complications associated with anesthesia.

These complications often occur when the surgeon performing a BBL surgery lacks enough training and experience in this procedure and doesn’t have a firm grasp of the functional system of the body.

Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon with significant experience in fat transfer procedures is the most important step in reducing the risk of complications after a BBL procedure. A well-trained BBL surgeon is quite familiar with a number of issues, including:

  • How much fat can be safely removed from a specific area
  • Where the fat can be injected safely
  • How deep the fact can be safely injected
  • How much fat should be injected
  • Routine surgical safety precautions and hygiene practices

Butt implants complications

The risks and side effects associated with buttock implants are bleeding, pain, bruising, scarring, skin discoloration, infection, implant displacement, asymmetry in buttocks, fluid accumulation, allergic reactions, and anesthesia-related complications. Most of these complications, however, rarely happen and if you choose the right surgeon and follow the post-op instructions, the chance of developing them can be greatly reduced.

Risks of butt lift surgery

A traditional butt lift procedure might cause the following complications:

  • Fluid accumulation under the skin (seroma), which can be prevented by placing drainage tubes after surgery or removing the fluid with a syringe.
  • Poor wound healing
  • Scarring
  • Changes in skin sensation (temporary)
  • Infection
  • bleeding
  • adverse reaction to anesthesia

Overall, a butt lift is a relatively safe procedure and doesn’t pose significant risks. Make sure to discuss possible complications with your surgeon prior to the operation.

Frequently Asked Questions About BBL/Butt lift/Butt implants

Some of the fat injected into the buttocks will naturally be absorbed by the body, but the remaining fat will last for up to 20 years. The amount of fat absorbed is different from person to person, but it takes 3-12 months to see how much of the fat has remained in place.

The traditional butt lift and butt implant insertion surgery require incisions, which will naturally leave a scar after healing. However, surgeons try to make the incisions in areas that are less visible.

The Brazilian butt lift procedure, on the other hand, is a minimally-invasive surgery which leaves little, if any, visible scar. The scars left after a BBL are actually from the short (less than one centimeter) incisions made for liposuction and fat injection.

It typically takes 3-4 weeks for full recovery from a BBL surgery, but most patients can return to work 1-2 weeks after surgery. You have to avoid exercising for 8 weeks after a Brazilian buttock lift procedure.

You are strongly advised to avoid sitting for prolonged periods after a BBL procedure. While it is ok to sit when using the restroom or for short period, it is recommended to lie on your stomach when having to sit for a long time, such as when watching the TV or working on a computer. For some tips for sitting positions after a BBL, see some video on YouTube, e.g. this video.

Silicone butt implants are FDA-approved, which means they have been tested and proven to be safe for use.

Yes, you can get a butt lift and a Brazilian butt lift in a single surgery session.

I have a sedentary job which requires sitting almost 8 hours a workday and sometimes I even need to work some hours on the weekend. I’m worried if I get a BBL, such a sedentary life with long periods of sitting will ruin my surgery results and leave me with a flat butt again. So, is it something to worry about?

At the initial stages of recovery, usually in the first 6 weeks, you’d better stay away from pressure on your buttocks. So frequent sitting and lying on the butt must be avoided. Special pillows to use after BBL can help you reduce pressure on your buttocks in your recovery period if you have to sit down for a long time. However, when you’re done with this stage and the transferred fat takes, you can go back to your normal life, and your work and its sitting requirements won’t be an issue.

I’m 30 years old and am considering a Brazilian butt lift. I have been actually saving up money for a while so that I can have the operation in the near future. What really matters to me is how long the results will persist. Is it possible that the fat grafts disappear somehow? Shrink or melt away so that the results will be missed? In other words, how long does the result of a BBL last? I’d really appreciate an honest answer. Thanks!

Thank you so much. I understand your concern. The short answer is that the results of a BBL are intended to be permanent. But let me explain a little more about the normal changes you may experience after having a BBL procedure to give you a more realistic idea. It’ll probably also get you rid of your worries. The first thing to be noted is that about 30% to 50% of the transferred fat will be missed (in fact absorbed by your body) and only 50% to 70% will survive to contribute to enhancing the butt. Therefore, a higher amount of fat is usually transferred in the first place, so that you can get the volume you desire after full recovery. While the loss of about 30% of the fat graft is almost inevitable for all patients, losing more can depend on how your surgery has been done and how strictly you follow your post-op care, instructed by your surgeon after the surgery. In 3 to 6 months, the transferred fat usually settles into the new place and connects with the surrounding tissues, becoming a natural part of your butt and you’re not going to lose more fat afterward. You should also be aware of considerable post-surgery swelling which diminishes in weeks after the procedure. So a part of the volume decrease in this stage may be attributed to dwindled swelling and must not be confused with fat loss. However, another factor to be noted is that if you lose weight, you may also lose a part of the fat in your butt just like other parts of the body. Yet, the form, contours, and relation to other body parts will be maintained which is why patients are usually happy with their BBL results even in the long term. All in all, if the surgery is done correctly by a skillful board-certified surgeon you can expect to enjoy your desired results for a lifetime.

I am 36 years old, 70 kg in weight, and 168 cm in height, and have had 2 pregnancies. I am not thin but have got a flat butt and almost no hips. My ideal figure is Cardi B. Is it possible for me to get a body like hers through a BBL or a similar procedure? I mean the butt and hips, of course.

A BBL is a great choice to shape the buttocks, hips, stomach, back, waist, and even thighs, where you remove unwanted fat usually from your back and stomach area, and add it to the butt and hips. The result will be a flatter stomach, a narrower waist, and an enhanced butt and hips. However, a one hundred percent resemblance with Cardi B or other people can only be achieved if your other body characteristics support such transformations. In the first place, it depends on the amount of fat that can be transferred to the treated area. On the one hand, we have a limit for the amount of fat that can be harvested from other parts of your body, and on the other hand, there may be a limit for how much fat can settle into the butt and hips area which mainly depends on your skin flexibility. Other factors include your bone anatomy and structure. While great transformations and beautiful curves could be achieved through a BBL regardless of your bone anatomy, you’ll need an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to predict how similar your results will look to the curves and contours of the body of the celebrity of interest.

It is about a month since my BBL surgery and despite meticulously practicing my surgeon instructions, my butt is shrinking every single day. Is it gonna keep shrinking until it gets back to the way it used to be before the surgery??? I am really disappointed. What can I do to stop this failure?

I understand your worries but you should know that shrinking is very normal and most probably you’re going through the normal BBL recovery process. Several reasons contribute to this reduction in volume you’re experiencing. First of all, you have considerable swelling after the surgery most of which diminishes in the first 3 to 6 weeks. So it’s partly due to the swelling. But the main part goes back to reabsorbing the transferred fat. You should know that most patients gradually absorb 30%-50% of the fat which can continue for up to a year, while the rest will survive, integrate into the surrounding tissues, and take on the blood supply. Another factor that may affect the appearance of the results, is the swelling of other body parts involved in the procedure (areas like stomach, back, and waist which acted as the fat donor). When swollen, you may not see a great difference in your buttocks volume as the surrounding areas are also larger than normal. When you’re fully recovered, swelling in those areas will be resolved too, causing the butt to stand out more.
So, no. I don’t think it will keep shrinking until it loses all the fat. But I’d recommend visiting your doctor to make sure your buttocks are not shrinking more than usual and if you’re doing all the post-op instructions correctly. As with any other plastic surgery, I also recommend patience. Because most results take time to appear. So you might want to wait for about a year to see your final result and consider a revision surgery if not satisfied with the results.

Interesting question. Actually, I would need your height, weight, body fat, photos, and ideally, an in-person visit to give you a more precise answer. But generally, those with slim bodies who do not have much fat deposit can undergo a skinny BBL, which makes use of the fat of multiple areas of the body instead of only one or two parts to make up for the fat graft required for enhancing the buttocks. Depending on your fat deposit, it is possible to bring minor to dramatic results through skinny BBL. However, if a skinny BBL is not a good option for you, you may be a candidate for butt augmentation using implants instead of autologous fat grafts.
