A good candidate for a Skinny BBL is anyone seeking a larger booty who doesn’t have enough fat to graft from less than four parts of the body. Patients should be in good physical and emotional health and have realistic expectations about what this surgery can offer them.
It can take up to six months for a patient to see their full results of the BBL. Results are long-lasting and typically remain for at least five years. Many patients report satisfaction with their results for years following the procedure. Maintaining your weight can make the results permanent, and metabolism can impact longevity of results.
Incisions are made in the body when performing the fat transfer, however the incisions are very small so minimal to no visible scarring occurs in this procedure.
Pain and bruising can persist after the procedure for two weeks or more, and your doctor will typically advise against putting any pressure on the area for at least a month. There may be some pain at the injection and incision sites for a couple of weeks after the fat transfer.
No procedure is without risk. The best way to reduce risk with this procedure is to do your research and go to a reputable surgeon with experience performing Skinny BBLs. In addition, following your doctor’s aftercare instructions will ensure that your final results meet your expectations.
The fat can come from many areas of the body. The most common areas to transfer the fat from are the abdomen, flanks, arms, thighs, back, and chin. While a standard BBL requires fat from two to three areas of the body, a skinny BBL transfers fat from four or more.
Even a skinny BBL requires enough fat to be transferred from at least four parts of the body. Some patients with lower body fat percentages may not have enough fat to transfer and should consider alternate methods to achieve their desired look. Through a consultation, a provider will be able to assess your goals and body fat content to determine if a Skinny BBL is the right procedure for you.
