Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery in Turkey

Brazilian butt lift (also known as a BBL, buttock augmentation with fat grafting or bum lift) is a type of surgery where a doctor transfers fat from your tummy, hips, lower back or thighs to your buttocks.

This procedure is used to give patients a curvier, more balanced figure. with bigger buttocks and usually a slimmer waist that results in a more natural-looking butt.

How to prepare for BBL surgery?

Before BBL surgery you will need to have a full medical examination with the doctor so they can assess your body structure, especially the hips, abdomen and buttocks. They will also check your BMI, any previous medical conditions you have, and will need access to your medical history. 

It is important to disclose accurate information around any medication you are taking, supplements, and substances, such as alcohol or smoking, so the surgeon can advise on the best treatment plan. 

During the consultation the doctor may suggest alterations to any pre-subscribed medication, run blood tests, check for any possible heart related complications (EKG) and take urine samples to see if you are eligible for a Brazilian Butt Lift. 

The surgeon may ask you to avoid the following before surgery:

– Take a break from smoking three weeks before surgery 
– Avoid tanning beds 4-6 weeks before surgery
– Eat a healthy diet and stay hydrated

BBL Surgery Procedure

The BBL procedure starts by the surgeon extracting fat from the hips, thighs, lower back and abdomen. The fat is then purified and injected into certain areas of the buttocks. 

The surgery lasts 2-4 hours and is done under general anesthesia. If you are having supporting procedures, such as Tummy Tuck, or Liposuction then the surgery will take longer, but these options will be needed to be assessed by the surgeon in your initial consultation to see if it is safe to combine other procedures.

Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in Turkey

 Brazilian Butt Lift  costs in Turkey start from £2,000 and usually come with an all inclusive package that includes all medical fees, VIP transfers from the hotel to the clinic, and  4-5 star hotel accommodation. Comparing this to the cost of having a BBL in the UK, which usually starts from £8,000, there is a considerable difference in price when choosing Turkey for this treatment.

Turkey has some extremely talented surgeons, high end hospital facilities, and is one of the top rated countries in the world for medical tourism with millions of patients visiting every year for cosmetic procedures.

When choosing a surgeon for BBL, it is important to check their credentials, ask to see before and after photos and do some thorough research on the hospitals and  reviews. The surgeon should be registered with the Turkish Medical association and operate from a hospital that is registered with the Turkish Ministry of Health. 

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Recovery typically takes around 6 weeks, but you may start to see noticeable improvements within the first few weeks. For the first 2 weeks after surgery, you should avoid sitting or lying directly on your backside to avoid putting pressure on the injection site. 

Most Brazilian Butt Lift patients can resume light activity within 7 days and return to work within 7 to 10 days. However, you should avoid strenuous exercise until around 6-8 weeks after surgery.

After BBL surgery you should avoid sitting or lying down on your back for the first couple of days and use a BBL pillow (doughnut shaped pillow) to help you sit more comfortably. Depending on the area the fat was injected during the BBL it may be best to sleep on your side or stomach for the first night after the operation to help to get the best results, as lying directly on the buttocks can cause pressure on the fat cells injected. You should speak to your surgeon about thes best sleeping positions.

For the first three months you should keep a healthy diet with a high calorie intake to nourish the injected fat cells. It is important to consult your surgeon about this so you can help maintain the fullness of the buttocks. 

Brazilian Butt Lift Risks & Side effects

Brazilian butt lift surgery is relatively safe. However, like any cosmetic procedure, it isn’t risk-free. Some of the minor side effects associated with it include:

  • Pain.
  • Scarring.
  • Lumps under the skin.
  • Fat embolism
  • Infection

Some other side effects include bumps and numbness where the nerve tissue may have been affected, but this numbness will pass in a couple of weeks. If you feel any tingling sensations then this could be due to damaged nerves repairing themselves.

If at any point during the recovery stage you are feeling concerned then you should contact your surgeon to discuss your symptoms
