Skinny BBL - 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.
Like 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 BBL surgery because you've been told you don't have enough fat, you may need a Skinny BBL specialist at Chicago Breast & Body Aesthetics.

The Benefits of Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

A Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift is like getting TWO procedures in one. It is the ultimate way to enhance your buttocks and hips and your tummy, back, and waist at the same time. Even if you are slender and thinner, you can have the shape you desire.

  • Removes fat from areas you don’t want. Getting Lipo360 and a Skinny BBL 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!  Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift uses your fat to sculpt your new figure. Unlike implants that can look and feel fake, your fat is soft and supple and will give you safe, natural results.
  • Lasting results! The fat doesn’t go away. We get on average 70-80% fat taken with our technique, 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 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 a BMI of 24 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 harvest enough for your BBL safely.  In addition to aggressive liposuction, your surgeon may suggest harvesting fat from additional areas, including the 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 Procedure?

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 slight Brazilian butt lift, the shape is often more important than volume.

Your surgeon may suggest gaining weight if possible before your procedure.  Some FDA-approved fillers 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 to transplant 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 is enough for a dramatic result in most thin patients.

What is the recovery time?

After Skinny BBL, most patients can return to work in about seven days, with total activity and recovery occurring around 4-6 weeks. Once your body fully heals, your results are typically fully realized at the six month mark. 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 at least 4 to 6 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 standard BBL procedure performed on a normal or patient with a higher BMI. The cost of this procedure can range between $11,000 to $14,000 or more. 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.
