The Shape of Youth

Chicago’s best Brazilian Butt Lift

A curvy behind is symbolic of youth, health, and sensuality. Age, gravity, heredity, and weight fluctuations are common impediments to having the attractive, shapely backside you desire. When diet and exercise just aren’t enough, the answer may be buttocks reshaping called a BBL or “Brazilian Butt Lift”. A BBL at David Shifrin MD can sculpt your backside to help create a healthy, curvy silhouette. We strive to deliver the best BBL Chicago has to offer!

What is a BBL?

To enhance the size and contour of the buttocks without the use of implants, a BBL can be performed.

Liposuction is used to remove excess fat from the hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs; subsequently, a little amount of this fat is injected at a targeted location into the buttocks. BBL surgery, when performed by an experienced cosmetic surgeon, can help a patient remove fat in frequent "problem regions" and enhance the buttocks, leading to long-lasting improvements in body proportions.

The Gift of Curves

What are the Benefits of a BBL?

Buttocks’ form and size, as well as bone structure and fat distribution, are mostly controlled by heredity.

Although a balanced diet and regular exercise can help a person reach their ideal weight and tone their muscles, many patients are nevertheless dissatisfied because their buttocks do not have enough definition. Surgery to reshape the buttocks and the region around them, including the hips, lower back, and thighs, is called a Brazilian Butt Lift, and it can help people who aren't happy with their bodies as a result of their genetics. BBL's can be helpful if you want to:

  • Emphasize your legs' natural contours
  • Reduce fat in problem areas, including the hips, thighs, and tummy, with buttock enhancement as a side effect
  • Make clothes seem better on you
  • Improve the appearance of flat buttocks
  • Adjust the ratio of your upper to lower body to seem better overall.

Meet your goals

Chicago Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shifrin

Your BBL Procedure

Dr. Shifrin will perform liposuction using a small tube called a cannula that is attached to a vacuum. Extra fat cells will be removed from locations where they commonly gather, such as your tummy, hips, lower back, and thighs.

After that, the fat is cleaned, removed from the fluid, and placed into a syringe for transfer. Your doctor will then precisely inject the fat into the buttocks to improve their form and size. In rare situations, a portion of the transplanted fat may not respond to the relocation, therefore surgeons may inject more than is required to guarantee that the outcomes satisfy your expectations and goals. If the bulk of the cells die, regrafting may be required in the future and can be determined during follow-up appointments with Dr. Shifrin.

Natural Enhancement

Am I a good candidate for a BBL?

There are certain people who are better candidates for a BBL than others, and it's crucial to have reasonable expectations regarding the process, recuperation, and final outcomes if you decide to go through with it. If you identify with the following, you may be an excellent candidate for a BBL:

  • You're hoping for a natural buttock enhancement without implants.
  • Your hips and buttocks have nice, even skin tone.
  • You may easily obtain enough fat from other parts of your body to inject into the buttocks.
  • You understand that avoiding buttock contact for a while (maybe a few weeks) is essential.

BBL Recovery

Recovery after buttocks surgery calls for some unique adjustments. For the next two weeks, you must avoid resting your buttocks on the seat or floor.

All action, including going to the bathroom, must be performed while lying on your stomach or side. After around eight weeks, Dr. Shifrin will let you return to your normal seated activities. Most of our Chicago BBL patients may go back to work 10-14 days following the procedure if they take it easy for the first week.

BBL Results

The effects of a BBL are designed to be permanent. Liposuction removes fat cells permanently, and those that make the journey to the buttocks will stay there for good.

Though dramatic weight swings might distort your results, staying at a consistent weight can help you appear your best at all times. Within six months of BBL surgery, all swelling and bruises have gone down, and you're feeling 100%; you may expect to see your final results. By now, your better lower body proportions and curvier buttocks will be reflected in your appearance and the way clothes fit.

Frequently Asked Questions

While some patients report severe pain following their BBL surgery, the majority report just mild discomfort. Muscular soreness is the root of the pain they're experiencing in their posterior, namely in the buttocks. This discomfort can usually be managed by over-the-counter solutions, but Dr. Shifrin will also have a management plan for you as part of your surgery.

Sitting down too soon after a BBL could hurt the fat cells that were moved. Sitting on your buttocks can slow down the flow of blood, which is important for fat cells to grow. Sitting for long periods of time too soon after surgery could cut off circulation, which could kill fat cells.
