If you’ve been working out, using booty bands, and performing specific exercises in the attempt to increase the size of your buttocks but still haven’t achieved your desired results, you’re not alone. Sometimes the gym, fitness routine, or diet aren’t enough to help you achieve your ideal physique. At Nuance Cosmetic Surgery in Folsom, CA, we have a solution. We offer the Brazilian butt lift, a procedure that will help improve the appearance of the buttocks in a completely natural way.
How Can You Maximize Your Brazilian Butt Lift Results?
Once you undergo a BBL, also known as a Brazilian but lift, you’ll get some incredible and natural-looking results. However, there are ways to maximize your results so that you can look your best and enjoy your results as long as possible. By making the right lifestyle choices, focusing on building muscle in specific areas of your body, and avoiding weight loss will help you experience the best results and even enhance them.
Avoid Weight Loss
During a BBL, your unwanted fat cells are transported from one of your problem areas, prepared and cleansed, and then re-administered into the buttocks. It’s important that once the fat cells are injected into your buttocks, you protect your results by avoiding weight loss. When your body loses weight, different fat cells throughout the entire body shrink down. When this happens, you will look like and essentially be a smaller version of yourself.
Since there is no way to determine the location of the fat cells in your body that will shrink as a result of weight loss, it’s important that you avoid weight loss and maintain your weight, and stay within ten to fifteen pounds of your weight at the time of your procedure. If the fat cells that have been injected into your buttocks shrink down, this will affect the size and appearance of your buttocks.
Target Pockets Stubborn Fat in the Office
If you have some specific body goals that would typically require a weight loss program in order for you to reach them, there are other solutions that you can use, and even better, they won’t negatively impact your BBL results. Vanquish ME is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to destroy stubborn fat cells without affecting the surrounding skin, tissue, or other areas of the body.
Using Vanquish ME To Reach Your Body Goals
Suppose you have pockets of stubborn fat on your abdomen but do not want to undergo a weight loss program to shrink those fat cells because it could affect your BBL results. In that case, you can schedule a Vanquish ME treatment to target one or multiple areas of your body, destroy stubborn fat cells, and then wait for your body to naturally and gradually eliminate those fat cells over time.
Vanquish ME can target stubborn fat on the inner and outer thighs, the upper arms, the back, abdomen, love handles, and bra fat. If you’re interested in adding Vanquish ME sessions to your treatment plan and want to find out if you’re a good candidate, one of our experts can evaluate your problem areas and then design a treatment plan that helps you reach your goals without interfering with or affecting your BBL results.
Structure Your Workouts Accordingly
All workouts are not created equal, especially when it comes to enhancing your BBL results. You need to consider the type and quantity of exercises that you perform each week after you have fully recovered from your BBL to ensure that you don’t negatively impact your results but instead enhance them.
Focusing on lower body exercises that build the gluteal muscles can help tighten and tone underlying muscles beneath the newly transplanted fat cells and even add some size to the area. Weighted squats, deadlifts, glute kickbacks, and weighted plyometrics can all help target, tone, and build your gluteal muscles without causing significant weight loss. This kind of lower body strength training exercise can help enhance your results long term.
Consider Your Cardio
Not only should you focus weight training workouts with exercises that increase the size and strength of your gluteal muscles, but you should also be mindful when considering the type of cardio you add to your fitness routine. An excessive amount of cardio will burn significant calories, possibly leading to weight loss, which could affect results.
To avoid this, simply add 30 minutes of moderate to intense cardio into your daily routine in conjunction with your strength training regimen to build your muscles, tighten and tone other areas of your body, and also maintain your healthy weight.
Follow the Post-Procedure Directives
One of the easiest and most important ways to enhance your BBL results is by following the surgeon’s post-operative instructions. Once your fat cells have been harvested from one area of the body and transplanted into specific locations in and around the buttocks, you’ll need to use extreme care during your recovery to ensure that those fat cells can adhere and as many as possible survive. Some of the recovery instructions may include:
- Avoiding excessive or strenuous exercise for a specific amount of time
- Wearing compression garments as directed
- Avoiding putting direct pressure on the buttocks
You may be provided with a special mechanism to use while sitting to avoid negatively affecting the newly transplanted fat cells with excessive pressure. You may also need to alter your sleeping position for a few weeks to avoid putting direct pressure on the area. Our surgical team will provide you with a complete list of directives to follow during your recovery, and as long as you follow each step carefully, you can expect some beautiful results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for Brazilian butt lifts are women who want to improve the appearance, size, and shape of their buttocks but don’t want to use an implant to do so. You’re looking for a natural and effective way to improve the appearance of your buttocks and are in good health, the BBL may be the perfect procedure for you. The best candidates also understand the limitations of the procedure and have realistic expectations regarding the outcome.
Additionally, it’s important that eligible patients have an adequate amount of stubborn fat cells that can be used as donor cells to transplant to the buttocks to deliver results. An initial consultation is an important first step in the process because it can help us confirm if the procedure is right for you.
At this appointment, you’ll meet with one of our experts who will discuss your goals, evaluate the current state of your potential donor site and your buttocks, and discuss your medical history. Once we confirm this procedure is right for you, we can move forward with the process so that you can enjoy enhanced buttocks as soon as possible.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
After undergoing this procedure, you can expect immediate results. You will see an immediate improvement in the size, shape, and appearance of your buttocks as soon as your procedure is complete. Your initial results will be noticeable, but the appearance of your buttocks will change slightly as your body recovers.
How Many Fat Cells Will Survive?
Typically, patients who undergo this procedure will retain 60 to 80% of the transplanted fat cells in the buttocks. Following the post-operative instructions will give you the best chance of a high survival rate for those fat cells.
Will I Look Natural?
You can also expect natural-looking results after your procedure because the Brazilian butt lift does not require a surgical implant. Instead, we use your natural fat cells and remove them from one of your problem areas, and then inject them into the buttocks to add natural volume and improve the overall appearance. Fat grafting is so popular because it delivers natural-looking results. Not only will your new and improved buttocks look natural, but they will feel natural as well.
