Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) in Bangkok

The Ultimate Guide to Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) in Bangkok

Last fact-checked: 14 October 2020

A Brazilian butt lift in Bangkok is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries at the moment, as women look for more affordable ways of achieving a curvier posterior, championed by celebrities, such as Kim Kardashian and J-Lo.

Medical Departures can help you to find skilled cosmetic surgeons in Bangkok with the expertise to provide with the look you want, at a price you can afford.

What Is a Brazillian Butt Lift (BBL)?

Not to be confused with gluteoplasty, the other butt lift surgery that removes excess skin only, a Brazilian Butt Lift is a form of butt implant surgery where fat is harvested from your own body (a process called autologous fat transfer). This method adds volume and shapes to your bottom, often creating a more natural look than synthetic implants.

Who Is Suitable for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

If you want a more lifted and female-shaped profile, a Brazilian butt lift can help you obtain a curvier, hour-glass figure.

If you are in good health, and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure, you may be a suitable candidate for a Brazilian butt lift.

It can help with sagging, flat buttocks, or if you have lost a lot of weight your bottom has changed shape.

Why Have a Brazilian Butt Lift in Bangkok?

Bangkok has long been a compelling city for tourists from around the world – its traditional Thai culture entwined with the trappings of the 21st century providing an invigorating combination to fascinate and beguile.

Upmarket restaurants, tasty street food, luxury hotels, backpacker hostels, market hagglers and swanky shopping malls – there’s something to suit every taste and budget with regard to everyday facilities, and equally as much variation for sightseeing and entertainment.

It’s little wonder Bangkok, given its popularity as a tourist hotspot, is one of the leading destinations for medical tourism, with patients from across the world, particularly Australia and New Zealand, coming for cosmetic surgery procedures, such as the Brazilian butt lift.

Bangkok has ultra-modern, high-specification hospitals and clinics, including a fair share of JCI-accredited facilities, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, and medical staff who are highly capable and skilled, delivering to patients reliable services that can be reasonably assessed just by the sheer numbers of patients who use them. It stands to reason that if patients are choosing Bangkok in their droves, then the services must be good.

Finding a BBL Specialist in Bangkok with Medical Departures

Medical Departures carried out strict background checks on all of our listings to assess reliability and trustworthiness of our partner clinics and medics.

Simple checks, such as establishing if there have, or are, any legal or criminal proceedings against a clinic or doctor, professional registrations and qualifications determine whether a provider is someone we may want to partner with. If these are in order, we also take the time to visit clinics personally to see them in action for ourselves, and, finally, we collect patient testimonials from those who have used the services – past patients.

What Does the Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure Involve?

As with most cosmetic surgeries, surgeons use an array of different techniques to achieve the desired result. There are actually two procedures you will need to undergo to complete your Brazilian butt lift:

  1. The first involves the removal of fat from the donor site of your body, which will then be processed and purified
  2. The second step is to inject the fat into your buttocks after anaesthesia has been administered

The fat is removed by liposuction from the donor site, which may be the stomach, thighs or back (which also makes this area look more attractive too). The extracted fat is purified by centrifugation and is injected into the buttocks with special cannulas.

You will have little incision marks at the donor site, as well as the buttocks, but they will be in inconspicuous areas that can be covered with clothes, and they will fade over time to be virtually unnoticeable.

The procedure usually takes several hours, but it can be more or less, depending on how much fat is required.

What Is the Recovery Time for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

After surgery:

  • You will be bandaged and perhaps have to wear a compression garment, which is tight and helps with swelling to speed recovery.
  • Some surgeons insert drainage tubes to draw fluid away from the site, but not all do.
  • For the first few days you will feel sore and stiff.
  • To relieve pressure on the buttocks, you will need to avoid sitting, so lying on your stomach is the best way to do this.
  • When leaving the hospital, you will need pillows to sit on in the car, and you may have to use a pillow for a couple of months when you sit, until you have healed and the swelling has died down.
  • You should be able to return to work in a few weeks but strenuous exercise should be avoided for six weeks.
  • It may take up to six months before you have healed completely.

What Is the Cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift in Bangkok Compared to Australia or New Zealand?

The cost of Brazilian butt lifts in Bangkok is around 50% less than it is in Australia, with patients often being able to save thousands (even when factoring in those flights and accommodation expenses).
