Is this the end of the BBL era?

25 Aug 2022

Has the “Brazilian Butt Lift” (fat transfer to buttocks or buttocks augmentation) had its moment, or are big butts here to stay?

The popularity of BBLs has increased by over 77% since 2015, but the question is – are they here to stay? Media attribute the rise in popularity to celebrities with bodacious curves, such as Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Lopez. However, could the stars that brought booties into the spotlight also be the reason for their fall from fame? After a wave of suspected celebrity BBL reversals, there is speculation that we are heading towards the end of the BBL era.

BBLs have always been controversial. However, in 2015 it was released that the death rate in America amongst plastic surgeons performing a BBL was 1 in 3,000. After this statistic was released, a lot of research was done into why this was happening, and guidelines were created about the safe way to perform the procedure. Despite these associated risks, the BBL continued to soar in popularity. 

The predictions are in; now that the Kardashians are sporting a slimmer physique, the trend in BBL reversals is expected to soar. While it may seem straightforward to remove the fat, there are some things that you should take into consideration if you are undergoing a BBL reversal. The two main concerns are reducing fat and preserving the skin quality; removing too much fat can result in loose skin.

There are steps you can take to reduce the risk of loose skin. One technique here at Absolute Cosmetic Perth is to treat the area with VASER Liposuction and Renuvion. The VASER is an excellent option to remove the fat. It liquefies the fat so that it can be removed easily and results in a smoother finish. Renuvion targets skin laxity using plasma energy. It is inserted under the skin and heats the skin, which causes a tightening effect resulting in around 10 – 30% skin tightening. 

If you want to take the treatment to the next level, we often suggest that patients undergo a session of Ultraformer beforehand. Ultraformer is an ultrasound or radiofrequency that heats the dermis and causes a tightening of the dermis. It may not be a notable change visually. However, the dermis is healthier and tighter, which results in your skin bouncing back more post-BBL reduction. 

There are many ways to treat the fat and the skin, providing optimal results for the patient. If you are interested in this procedure or would like any more information, don’t hesitate to contact us on 1300-NEW-YOU (1300-639-968.)
