What is the downside of BBL?
As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and downsides associated with a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). Some of the potential downsides of BBL include:
- Complications: Like any surgery, there is a risk of complications with a BBL. Some of the possible complications include bleeding, infection, fluid accumulation, and adverse reactions to anesthesia.
- Uneven results: There is a risk of asymmetry or uneven results with a BBL. This can occur if the surgeon injects uneven amounts of fat into each buttock, or if the body absorbs fat unevenly after the procedure.
- Fat embolism: A rare but serious complication of a BBL is a fat embolism, which occurs when fat enters the bloodstream and blocks blood vessels in the lungs, heart, or brain. This can cause serious health problems, including death.
- Prolonged recovery: The recovery period after a BBL can be lengthy and uncomfortable. Patients are typically advised to avoid sitting or lying on their backs or buttocks for several weeks after the procedure, which can be challenging for some individuals.
- Dissatisfaction with results: While many individuals are happy with the results of their BBL, some may not achieve the desired outcome or may experience changes in their body shape over time.
It’s important to discuss the potential risks and downsides of a BBL with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon and weigh them against the potential benefits of the procedure.
