How Long Does A Brazilian Butt Lift Last?
Medically Reviewed by
You can expect a BBL to last for several years, and even in some cases, several decades. The longevity of your BBL results are dependent on the way your buttocks is treated during the recovery process.
Throughout the entire lifetime of your BBL, a patient can expect to retain at least 60-70 percent of the initial fat transferred to the buttocks. Your butt will go through a few phases following the BBL procedure, before finally stabilizing in shape and size at around a ninety-days post-surgery time period.

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, your butt begins to regenerate and produce additional fat cells, which will cause an increase in volume. Finally, everything stabilizes between three and six months.
You can expect a BBL’s results to last for up to several years, and perhaps even several decades depending on how well you treat your buttocks during the recovery process. Your BBL can and will last for decades if you treat your BBL in a way that maximizes your results. Learn how to maximize your BBL’s results.
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.

Others may choose to do occasional skin tightening procedures to maintain their results.
