It is difficult to determine how long it will take for BBL to be effective as each individual will respond to the treatment differently. Generally, it is recommended that patients receive a series of 3-5 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart in order to achieve optimal results. However, some patients may start to see results after just a few treatments, while others may not see any significant improvement until after completing the full series. Additionally, it is important to note that BBL is not a 'one and done' treatment; results will gradually improve over time and additional treatments may be required to maintain results.

How long does bbl last?
How long does bbl last? This is a question that often plagues patients who are considering this procedure. While the answer may vary from person to person, there are some general trends that can be observed.
In general, the results of a bbl tend to last between one and two years. However, there are some people who report that their results last much longer. In some cases, the results of a bbl can last up to five years.
There are a few factors that can influence how long the results of a bbl will last. One of the most important factors is the quality of the procedure. If a patient chooses a reputable surgeon and follows all of the post-operative instructions, they are more likely to have long-lasting results.
Another factor that can influence the longevity of a bbl is the patient's lifestyle. People who smoke, drink alcohol, or are exposed to a lot of sun are more likely to see their results diminish faster. Conversely, patients who take care of their skin and avoid excessive sun exposure are more likely to enjoy longer-lasting results.
Finally, the type of implant used can also affect how long a bbl lasts. Implants made from solid silicone are more likely to last longer than those made from saline.
Ultimately, the best way to ensure long-lasting results from a bbl is to choose a reputable surgeon and follow all of the post-operative instructions. Patients who take care of their skin and avoid excessive sun exposure are also more likely to enjoy longer-lasting results.
Is bbl permanent?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the permanence of a bbl (buttock augmentation with fat grafting) depends on a number of individual factors. However, in general, a bbl is considered a semi-permanent procedure, with results typically lasting for several years. In some cases, fat grafts can be reabsorbed by the body over time, which may require touch-up procedures to maintain results. Additionally, weight fluctuations can affect the results of a bbl, so patients should be committed to maintaining a healthy weight in order to prolong the results of their procedure.
What is the success rate of bbl?
The success rate of BBL is very high. There are many factors that contribute to this such as the experience of the surgeon, the type of procedure used, the age and health of the patient, and the expectations of the patient. The majority of patients are very happy with their results and feel that the procedure was worth the investment.
How many treatments are needed for bbl?
There is no set answer to how many treatments are needed for bbl. The number of treatments required will depend on the individual's goals, skin type, and the extent of the damage. It is important to consult with a doctor or licensed aesthetician to determine the best course of action.
How much does bbl cost?
How much does bbl cost? The average cost of a bbl surgery is approximately $8,000. However, the cost can range significantly depending on the individual surgeon's fee, the geographic location of the surgery, the type of bbl procedure performed, and other factors.
Is bbl covered by insurance?
There is no definitive answer to this question as insurance companies vary in what they cover and do not cover. Some insurance companies may cover bbl surgery, while others may not. It is important to check with your individual insurance company to determine if they will cover the procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens during a BBL?
The BBL handpiece gives off pulses of light that target the area you want treated. This is a smooth glass surface and during the treatment, you may feel a slight sting. The light gradually penetrates your skin, treating the area below it.
What are the risks of a pigmented lesion BBL?
There is a risk of scarring with any procedure, but with the pigmented lesion BBL or laser we use, this risk is very low (under 1 %).
What does a BBL/laser feel like?
The BBL/laser causes mild discomfort. Patients describe the feeling of a laser pulse as “being snapped by a rubber band”, or like “the slight sting of a mosquito bite.” Most patients tolerate BBL/laser treatment with no need for anesthesia.
Why is a BBL so dangerous?
A BBL is dangerous because it can fat-spatter the inner thighs, which can lead to serious health problems. The fat spattering can also create a fire hazard by causing sparks when it ignites clothing or skin. Additionally, a BBL can cause significant damage to adjacent internal organs, such as the liver and gallbladder. In some cases, a BBL procedure may even result in death.
How risky is BBL surgery?
BBL surgery generally carries a lower risk than other cosmetic surgery procedures. However, the risk Increases as the volumes of fat transferred to the buttocks increases. When too much fat is transferred, there are a myriad of issues that arise. These can include: 1. Large amounts of fluid retention, leading to swelling and discomfort. 2. Inability to tighten your buttock skin properly, which may lead to skin sagging and Aaron formation (a lump due to fatty deposits under the skin). 3. Risk of infection, particularly if you have significant amounts of weight or fat transferred. 4. Scarring and difficulty walking normally after surgery.
