The results of a BBL will vary from patient to patient depending on how the buttock is treated after surgery.
In the first two weeks after the graft, your butt will lose up to 40 percent of its initial volume. This is normal, and we overfill in the first place to compensate for this. After that, the stem cells in your butt begin to regenerate and produce additional fat cells, which will cause an increase in volume. Finally, everything stabilizes between three and six months.
This is a semi-permanent procedure simply because the nature of your fat is only semi-permanent. Your butt will change over time as it responds to the normal aging process, whether or not you gain or lose substantial amounts of weight, and your overall diet. For the best BBL results, maintain an active and healthy lifestyle without extreme changes in your weight.
The BBL will potentially last for decades without the need for additional procedures. However, some patients opt to come in during their later years for a lift procedure to combat sagging due to the normal aging process. Others may choose to do occasional skin tightening procedures to maintain their results.
