Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift

"I am so happy with my skinny bbl. Natural, perky and bubbly!"

A “Skinny BBL” or “Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift” is a body contouring procedure designed for very thin or petite patients who typically have very little fat.

Similar to a traditional Brazilian Butt Lift, a trained surgeon will harvest fat from areas of the body and strategically transfer the fat to shape and sculpt your figure.

If you’ve been turned down for a BBL because you’ve been told you don’t have enough fat, you may need a Skinny BBL specialist at Dr. Chicago Breast & Body Aesthetics.

What are the Benefits of Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift is like getting TWO procedures in one. It is the ultimate way to enhance not only your buttocks and hips, but also your tummy, back, and waist all at the same time.

  • Removes fat from areas you don’t want. Getting Lipo360 and a Brazilian Butt Lift removes fat from areas you don’t want and transfers them to areas that you do to give you the curves in all the right places!
  • Natural results!  Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fat to build your new butt!  Unlike implants that can look and feel fake, your own fat is soft and supple and will give you safe, natural results.
  • Lasting results! The fat doesn’t go away. With our technique, we get on average 70-80% fat take and most patients will have permanent results.  As long as you follow your surgeon’s instructions and maintain a healthy diet and exercise, your brazilian butt lift results will last.

What is the difference between a Skinny BBL and a regular BBL?

A Skinny BBL is performed in a patient who is starting with a low weight or underweight.  Having low weight  makes it more difficult to harvest enough fat to achieve a noticeably good result.   Most Skinny BBL patients have BMI 21 or less (BMI calculator here).

If you have a low BMI or very little fat, your BBL surgeon will need to be very skilled at harvesting fat and may employ special techniques to safely harvest enough for your BBL.  In addition to an aggressive liposuction, your surgeon may suggest harvesting fat from additional areas including inner thighs, knee area, and arms.

For an accurate assessment of what you can achieve, see your surgeon for a consultation.

Can I get a good result from a Skinny BBL?

In general, patients getting Skinny BBL are looking to add more volume and projection to the buttocks, providing a perkier, athletic and youthful and proportional figure. With a skinny brazilian butt lift, the shape is often more important than volume.

Your surgeon may suggest gaining weight if possible prior to your procedure.  There are some FDA-approved fillers which can be used in conjunction with your natural fat to achieve a fuller result.  Your BBL surgeon will discuss these options with you during your consultation.

How much fat do I need for a Skinny BBL?

The amount of fat needed depends on body type and aesthetic goals,  As little as 200cc of healthy fat per side can make a noticeable difference in some patients.  A skilled Skinny BBL surgeon can usually harvest 500cc of healthy fat for each side, which in most thin patients is enough for a dramatic result!

What is the recovery time?

After Skinny BBL, most patients can return to work in about 7 days, with full activity and recovery occurring around 4-6 weeks. Your surgeon will give you specific post-operative instructions.

When will I see my results & will the fat last?

After a Skinny BBL, you can expect to see results almost immediately.

As long as the fat  is healthy, the longevity of the results should be the same as BBL in higher weight patients.  After a Skinny BBL, it will be very important to follow your surgeon’s post-op instructions carefully, including not sitting or putting pressure on the fat for the 4 weeks in order to maximize fat take and maximize your results.

What is the cost for a Skinny BBL?

How much does Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Cost in Chicago, Illinois? The cost of Skinny BBL is typically the same as a regular BBL in a normal or overweight patient.  This is because even though less volume of fat can be harvested, the process of harvesting fat is actually more difficult and potentially time-consuming. Harvesting fat in very thin patients definitely requires specialized skill that not all BBL surgeons possess.  In some cases, Skinny BBL can cost more if fat harvesting must be done in multiple or additional areas.
