A Look Back at BBL in 2016

Fat transfer to the buttocks, or Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a major part of my practice at Yager Esthetics. Being the Latin beauty expert, I know a few things about the importance of curves to the female form. After 20 years in private practice, I have learned many important things, and want to share them with you in a report on my BBL cases from 2016.

I did my first BBL before it was even called a Brazilian butt lift. It was 1998, and there was very little information out of the US. I got my information from Luis Toledo, a Mexican Plastic Surgeon, who explained his technique to me. I have further refined my method, and do more every year. It continues to be one of my top 5.

In 2016, I did over 150 fat transfers to the buttocks. I had zero infections, no DVT’s, and one request for additional fat to be placed. These statistics are extremely encouraging, and are a testament not only to my skill, but to my office and our ability to inform and educate each patient as to their expectations and proper care.

Patient selection is very important, as each patient needs to have enough fat that can be removed while not having a negative effect on the body to create the size they desire. Furthermore, they need to have the anatomic structure and space required in the buttocks region to add to. If someone wants more than is possible or safe, I explain the limits, and if that is not what they want, I do not perform the surgery.

In the right patient with the proper expectations, patient satisfaction is extremely high. If this is an area you have been thinking about, there has never been a better time to stop by for a consult or return visit. Yager Esthetics is always out front, but we are also behind you!
