What happens to a BBL after 10 years?
The longevity of the results of a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) can vary depending on several factors, including the individual’s weight fluctuations, the quality of the fat harvested and transferred during the procedure, and the technique used by the plastic surgeon.
While it is difficult to predict exactly what will happen to a BBL after 10 years, it is generally expected that some of the initial volume and fullness achieved through the procedure will naturally diminish over time. This is because some of the fat cells that were transferred during the procedure may not survive long-term and may be reabsorbed by the body.
To help maintain the results of a BBL over the long-term, it’s important to follow a healthy lifestyle and maintain a stable weight. Weight fluctuations can cause the remaining fat cells in the buttocks to expand or shrink, potentially altering the overall shape and contour of the buttocks.
Additionally, some individuals may choose to undergo a “touch-up” procedure after several years to help restore volume and fullness to the buttocks. This would involve the injection of additional fat into the buttocks to help enhance or maintain the results of the initial BBL procedure.
It’s important to note that the safety of a touch-up BBL procedure should always be carefully considered, and that individuals should work closely with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to assess their candidacy for the procedure and discuss any potential risks and benefits.
