The BBL Procedure

Are you considering Brazilian Butt Lift in New York?

A firm, perky backside is a symbol of youth, fertility and sensuality, especially here in New York City.   If you wish you had a fuller, rounder backside, if you spend time in the mirror thinking what it would be like to have an hourglass figure, or if you feel your buttocks are too flat, a buttock augmentation  in New York City with Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio may be just what you need.  

Why Choose Uptown Body Contouring?

If you are looking for a surgeon who is one of the busiest buttock augmentation surgeons in the world, you have found the right practice.  We focus 100% on Buttock Reshaping and Body Contouring.   Uptown Body Contouring’s patented technique of buttock augmentation is the most efficient in the world, allowing a buttock augmentation to be performed in one hour on average. 

 Quicker operating room times reduces the risks of general anesthesia and allows a more rapid recovery.   Dr. Del Vecchio is invited to speak at many major plastic surgery meetings because his technique of buttock augmentation is sought after by many plastic surgeons around the world.   As a board certified plastic surgeon and internationally-renown speaker on the topic of buttock reshaping, Dr. Del Vecchio attracts an international clientele who seek his expertise in large volume fat transplantation and buttock augmentation. This includes women from Canada, South America, Europe, Asia and Africa.  

The Procedure- “taking out unwanted fat and using it where you want it”

Also called Brazilian Butt Lift, buttock reshaping, buttock lipo-filling, and buttock injections, buttock augmentation can be performed using an implant or fat transplantation.  Fat transplantation is a specialized technique where fat is taken from unwanted areas of your body using liposuction, and is carefully placed in the buttock for enhancement.  The operation is done under general anesthesia, and begins by preparing the donor areas to be liposuctioned.

Contrary to what many surgeons may say, BBL is possible in the thin patient:

How will you look after your buttock augmentation?

Immediately following surgery, some patients elect to stay in an aftercare facility for a night but most will go home right away.  Recovery from the Brazilian butt lift is relatively fast for a surgical procedure. Patients can generally return to work within a couple of weeks. The discomfort associated with the surgery is usually associated with the donor sites of the liposuction. 

It’s important that patients avoid sitting on their buttock for at least three weeks after surgery. Fat requires a blood supply to survive, so while the small blood vessels grow into the fat it is very important to avoid any trauma to the buttocks.  . To reduce swelling, wearing a compression garment is also required during the recovery period and may be necessary for up to 3-4 weeks. 

How Long Does It Last?

In over 1000 large volume fat transfers published in journals of plastic surgery, (see News, Media), we have demonstrated an average volume maintenance of 60-70%.  The results are very consistent and are reproducible, with very few cases where fat volumes have failed to maintain this yield.  

After the surgery, your backside will be rounder and fuller, and your waist will look smaller. You will have a more shapely, sexy, hourglass figure.  Immediately after the surgery there will be swelling which will subside over 2-3 weeks.  You will gradually see your true results emerge over time. It takes 4- 6 months to see your final result.

What can you expect during a buttock augmentation consultation in New York?

We know two things about the buttock: 1) we all have one!  2) not all our concepts of buttock beauty are the same.  Before you undergo buttock augmentation, it will helpful if you bring in photos of women or men whose buttocks are your vision that you would like to achieve. This will help us understand your individual aesthetic and will assist us in providing you with a buttock augmentation procedure to suit your needs. Currently there are two options for enhancing your buttocks; fat grafting and gluteal implants. During the consultation we will discuss which procedure is right for you. We will also discuss what is involved before, during and after surgery.  We will discuss the procedure, the aesthetic goals, and the risks and benefits, including potential complications involved with the procedures. By the end of the consultation, you will have all of the information you need to make an informed decision.
