What is a BBL for men?
Contrary to popular belief, the Brazilian Butt Lift is not exclusively for women. In recent years, the Male BBL has gained in popularity among men aiming to change or enhance the appearance of their buttocks, especially those who find that rigorous exercise and dieting fall short in achieving their desired shape. The Male BBL surgical procedure is designed to work with the natural contours of the male body, emphasizing a more sculpted and athletic appearance.
Understanding the Male BBL Procedure
The Male BBL is similar to the traditional BBL procedure performed on women. The process requires liposuction and fat grafting techniques. First, Dr. Adajar or Dr. Truong will extract fat from other areas of your body, (abdomen, flanks, lower back, and sometimes arms). Second, your surgeon will strategically inject the harvested fat into specific regions of the buttocks, aiming to sculpt a masculine and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Unlike women, who often seek an hourglass silhouette from BBL, men typically favor a more angular, square-shaped contour with enhanced posterior projection. Sculpting a male physique requires a surgeon who is familiar with the male physique. The use your own fat makes this a natural and safer approach compared to buttock implants.
How long does it take to recover from a Male BBL?
The final BBL results may take between 3 to 6 months to fully develop once any residual swelling has subsided and your newly transplanted fat develops a healthy blood flow and supply. Your skin will also stretch to adjust to the size of your new buttocks. The liposuction areas will be quicker to heal, with most patients getting their final results between six and 12 weeks after surgery. Once all swelling has disappeared, you can enjoy the results of your newly contoured and more masculine-looking butt.
How much does the Male BBL Cost?
The cost of your Male BBL varies, depending on several factors such as the extent of the procedure, geographical location, and surgeon’s fees. Typically, the cost ranges from $10,000 to $15,000. This price reflects not just a transformation of the buttocks but an overall body sculpting process, as fat is redistributed to achieve the desired outcome.
Is the Male BBL Permanent?
The results of a Male BBL is a permanent procedure. Since we are using your own fat, the outcomes tend to be more long-lasting compared to artificial buttock implants. The retained fat percentage can range between 60-80%, with the final shape stabilizing around three months post-operation. The permanence of the results is semi-permanent, influenced by factors like aging and weight fluctuations. Therefore, maintaining a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle is crucial for preserving your results over the years.
Ideal Candidates for the Male BBL
The ideal candidate for the Male BBL are those who seek to enhance the size and projection of their buttocks, are generally healthy and active, have sufficient fat for redistribution, and possess realistic expectations about the outcomes. Good candidates are also within a healthy weight with a BMI of 32 or below.
