When you think about the Brazilian Butt-Lift surgery, you probably think it is for women only. But did you know that men also get the procedure? An increasing number of men are asking for the BBL because they want a better-looking butt, or they just want to increase the size of their buttocks to keep their pants up (this really is a request!). If you’re a man and you want fuller-looking buttocks, Dr. Peterson can help.
What Is the Brazilian Butt-Lift Procedure for Men?
The BBL procedure is the same for men as it is for women; unwanted fat is taken from another body area (such as the midsection, back or flanks) through liposuction and is returned to the body through injection into the buttocks.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and patients can expect to make a full recovery within two weeks, with most men going back to their normal routines in just five to seven days.
After the procedure, there will be restrictions on activity until you are fully healed (no squats or heavy lifting).
Why Is Popularity Increasing for Men?
Aside from the aesthetic benefits of getting a better-looking bottom (and the ability to keep one’s pants up), the BBL is increasingly popular among men because it requires minimal downtime after the procedure. This means that men can have this minimally invasive treatment and be back to work and their regular routines quickly. No weeks of convalescing at home while you recover like you might have with buttock implant surgery.
Many men appreciate the quick recovery time after the procedure because it gives them the discretion to take a brief time off from work, have the BBL and return to life as usual.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Ideal candidates for the BBL procedure are:
- At or near their ideal body weight
- Between the ages of 25 and 55
- In good health with no underlying health conditions
