What Is A Skinny BBL?

Throughout history, the ideals that surround what makes a body beautiful have constantly changed. Being curvy, skinny, small-breasted, large-breasted, athletic, voluptuous, etc., have all taken turns being in the spotlight. These days, most women are more focused on having a positive body image, and they have more latitude with what that looks like to them.

If they wish to be curvy, there are cosmetic procedures that can enhance their breasts or buttocks to accomplish this. If they wish to eliminate fat from different areas of their body, they can have liposuction or a number of other non-surgical cosmetic procedures. One procedure that has been growing in popularity is the traditional BBL, but what if the person desiring the Brazilian butt lift is skinny? Is it possible for skinny girls to get Brazilian butt lifts?

We are glad you asked because this is the topic of our article today. We are going to discuss what curve-enhancing options are for someone who is traditionally skinny and whether it is possible to have a skinny BBL.

Can An Individual With Less Body Fat Enhance Their Back Side?

Usually, BBLs are done on individuals who have excess fat on their body that can be extracted and then reinjected into targeted locations to enhance their buttocks and hips. This is done to create the curvy, more-hourglass-looking shape the patient desires. But what if the person does not have a plethora of extra fat to work with? Is there such a thing as skinny BBL surgery?

There are a few options for skinny girls who want Brazilian butt lifts. They could always go the surgical route of butt implants, but they may be able to achieve the look they want through careful body contouring with liposuction and minimal fat transfer.

How Does A Skinny BBL Work?

During a traditional BBL, the surgeon injects a special fluid under the patient’s skin to prepare the area for liposuction and then uses a cannula (a skinny metal tube) to pull out the unwanted fat. This fat is then put through a process to clean and prepare it for transplantation into the patient’s buttocks and hips. The surgeon strategically injects the purified fat into the areas identified for enhancement, where some of it will eventually become permanently “grafted.” This means that it will act like any other fat cell in the body when responding to weight loss or gain.

A skinny Brazilian butt lift may not require as much transplanted fat to make an impact, but it may require that it be harvested from non-traditional locations such as the arms, back, or thighs.

When doing a skinny BBL on individuals who do not have a lot of extra fat to work with, it is more about contouring the waist, abdomen, back, and flanks, and the strategic placement of the transferred fat to the hips that creates, the illusion of a curvier hourglass figure.

Who Makes A Good Candidate For Skinny BBL Surgery?

Individuals who would be the ideal candidate for skinny BBL surgery would possess the following traits:

  • They are in good health;
  • They do not have medical conditions that would disqualify them for liposuction surgery;
  • They are non-smokers;
  • Their BMI is 25 or under;
  • They understand what a skinny BBL can and cannot accomplish for them;
  • They are focused on maintaining their current weight to preserve their results.

What Is Involved In The Recovery From A Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift?

Recovery from a skinny BBL will look very much the same as it does with a traditional BBL, except there may be more sites that were treated with liposuction.

  1. You will need to follow all the post-surgery directives provided by your surgeon, including the proper use and duration of wearing compression garments. These will help alleviate excess swelling and bruising and provide a faster recovery with better results;
  2. After a skinny BBL, you will have to avoid putting pressure on the newly transferred fat cells so they will survive the grafting process. This will require some creative sleeping and sitting positions, as well as when you use the bathroom. There are special pillows and inflatable furniture that you can purchase to help you with this as you recover from your skinny BBL, and your surgeon can help you with some strategies for navigating these situations;
  3. It is important that you get up and take as many short walks around the house as you are able during your recovery to help keep the blood circulating. This helps prevent fluid buildup and can significantly speed up your recovery process;
  4. It is important to take proper care of yourself as you heal from your skinny Brazilian butt lift. This means eating a healthy diet, making sure to drink plenty of water, and getting as much sleep as you can. Your body will work hard to repair the “damage” created by the surgery, and with your help, it will go smoother and your risk for complications will be significantly reduced;
  5. Most patients need to take at least two weeks off from work because they are unable to sit at a desk or do any physically demanding tasks during this time. Usually, it takes about six weeks before patients can return to their normal schedules, including their workout routines;
