What Is It?
The BBL is an augmentation procedure for the posterior that creates more youthful and perky buttocks, allowing for a more attractive body profile. The surgery uses your own body’s fat to augment your buttocks, rather than silicone, making it a fairly natural procedure.

How Can It Help?
People generally opt for the BBL surgery if they have flat buttocks and they want to increase perkiness and achieve more sensual body profiles. However, it can also be used to remedy issues related to sagging buttocks and asymmetrical buttocks. Furthermore, it is a popular procedure amongst people have undergone weight loss, as it can remedy a number of issues related to excess skin and changing buttock shape.

What Is Recovery Like?
The recovery period for the BBL is often quite difficult, as it requires patients to avoid direct use of their buttocks. Bed rest for about a week, during which time you should drink lots of fluids, is recommended. You should also not sit directly on your buttocks for three weeks following the procedure, which also means that you won’t be able to drive. Furthermore, you may need to take the same amount of time off work.
