What is a Skinny BBL?

A skinny BBL or a skinny Brazilian Butt Lift is a variant of the traditional BBL.

This surgical procedure consists in reshaping the patient’s buttocks using its own fat from other areas of the body.

With this method, it is possible to increase the size and modify the shape and contour of the buttocks. Furthermore, the results are achieved naturally without needing foreign bodies or implants. As a result, the buttocks not only do look great but also feel natural.

The fat is harvested from multiple areas of the body through liposuction. Afterward, it is processed and transplanted into the buttocks. Therefore, not only this procedure improves your buttock’s appearance but also your overall aesthetics.

However, as the name suggests, a skinny BBL is a surgical procedure planned for thin and petite persons. Furthermore, not everyone is a good candidate, and you should discuss your case with the doctor. They can help you determine whether a skinny BBL is your best alternative or if you should opt for other treatment options.

Our renowned specialists can evaluate your case and desired results to make the right choice and guide you through the process. Moreover, patients from Beverly Hills frequently visit our practice in Los Angeles just to get a skinny BBL.

Difference between regular BBL and skinny BBL

Both procedures have the same goal and are very similar. The difference between them relies on the person they are aimed at and the fat harvesting or liposuction areas.

For a regular BBL, the doctors usually harvest the fat tissues by performing liposuction in a specific area, such as the abdomen or thighs. This is because the patient has enough fat to safely harvest it from a single place.

On the contrary, a skinny BBL is performed on patients who don’t have enough fat to harvest from a single area. Therefore, the doctor performs multiple liposuction procedures to gather small amounts of fat from different body areas. This way, it is possible to obtain enough fat to transfer to the buttocks even when the patients are skinny.

The skinny BBL is usually intended for patients who have a BDI (Body Mass Index) of under 25. Regularly, patients with higher BDI are better candidates for a regular BBL since they tend to have enough fat for harvesting by liposuction in a single area.

How is the Skinny BBL procedure performed in Santa Monica?

It begins with a consultation. The doctor evaluates your case and determines if you are a good candidate for a skinny BBL.

Afterward, you discuss your goals and expectations with the doctor to ensure mutual understanding. As a result, he ensures that your expectations are realistic according to what the treatment can provide. Lastly, he walks you through the process as he explains everything you need to know.

Once everything is ready, you can proceed to the surgery. The procedure is done under anesthesia to prevent pain and discomfort.

First, the doctor performs a small incision to insert the suction cannula and begin the liposuction. Once enough fat tissue is harvested from a site, the process is repeated in another area. Multiple liposuctions are performed across different zones until enough fat has been harvested.

The most frequent areas for liposuction for a skinny BBL include the abdomen, love handles, back, chin, and thighs. However, everyone’s body is different, and the body parts that will undergo liposuction will depend on each case.

The fat is then purified using a centrifuge machine to prevent adverse reactions. Afterward, it is injected into the buttocks to reshape it in the desired way.

How is the recovery process?

Since it is a surgical procedure, patients can expect mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort following the skinny BBL. Patients usually take a week off from work to heal and recover properly.

Furthermore, you are provided with a compression garment to help with the swelling and healing. A specific pillow might also be provided to wear for an entire month.

The areas where the liposuction is performed can take a few weeks to heal. In the meantime, these areas might feel sore and tender.

Who is a good candidate for a Skinny BBL?

Recommended patients should be thin and usually under 25 BMI. More importantly, they must be in good health and free of diseases that could interfere with the surgery, such as bleeding disorders.

However, although the skinny BBL is intended for thin people, they must have enough fat tissue to harvest from different areas. If you don’t have enough fat, the procedure can’t be performed, and implants might be a better solution for you.

How much fat do I need?

The amount of fat needed varies depending on your desired result. Generally, skinny people don’t require much fat transfer to achieve an outstanding result.

This occurs because adding too much fat to the buttocks can make it look disproportionate and unnatural. Therefore, the exact amount of fat needed depends on your size and the current size of your buttocks. In most cases, a minor increase in size is enough to create a big difference in appearance. Fortunately, our specialist in Santa Monica can help you determine how larger you shou
