What If You Don’t Have Enough Fat for a BBL?

A Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, is a procedure that lifts, firms, and maximizes the backside. It involves harvesting fat from one area of the body—most commonly, the stomach or love handles—and injecting that fat into the buttocks to create a rounder, fuller look. However, if you don’t have enough donor fat to harvest for the procedure, you may have been discouraged from getting a BBL in the past. But here’s the good news: There’s a Brazilian butt lift procedure designed for people just like you! It’s called the skinny Brazilian butt lift, and it could provide you with the enhanced backside you’ve been craving.

What Is a Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift?

A skinny BBL uses fat from the back, trunk, and thighs rather than the stomach or love handles. For smaller patients, less fat is needed to make a noticeable difference, so these areas can typically provide the right amount of donor fat. A skinny BBL can add volume to the buttocks and change their shape; it cannot make a butt more projected or significantly larger.

During the procedure, the cosmetic surgeon will make small incisions to obtain fat from the aforementioned areas. Then, the fat will be purified and processed. After that, it will be injected into specific areas of the buttocks.

You will be able to go home the same day as the procedure and recovery is similar to that of a traditional Brazilian butt lift. You’ll feel soreness, discomfort, and swelling of your backside and will have to refrain from sitting for at least a week. Icing your butt and wearing a compression garment can help with any postoperative pain.

Who Is a Candidate for Skinny BBLs?

A skinny BBL is ideal for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) less than 25. Those with a history of smoking are discouraged from this procedure. You should also be in fairly good health and have realistic expectations of the results.
