What Is A Skinny BBL?

A skinny BBL is an advanced procedure performed by Dr. Pearce in Austin, TX to improve the appearance of hip dips, which are indentations around the curvature from the hips to the thighs. A skinny BBL redistributes fat from another area of your body to your hip dips, creating a fuller and more even appearance for a beautifully contoured silhouette. A skinny BBL is similar to a Brazilian butt lift, but the patients for this procedure are usually on the lower end of the body mass index scale, with a body mass index (BMI) of 22 – 25. Patients with a BMI below 22 typically lack enough fat to transfer to the buttocks and get a good result. This procedure aims to fill hip dips and add curves to the lower body rather than just increasing projection. In a skinny BBL, much of the projection is achieved by sculpting the lower back region just above the buttocks.

What Can I Expect During A Skinny BBL?

During your consultation, Dr. Pearce will discuss anesthesia options for the skinny BBL, usually performed under general anesthesia but can be performed while you are awake in our office with local anesthesia for suitable candidates. The procedure involves liposuctioning fat from selected areas like the stomach, inner thighs, arms, or lower back and injecting it into the hip dip areas for improved contours.

Achieve A Contoured Silhouette

If you are unhappy with the dip where your hips meet your thighs, Pearce Plastic Surgery may have a solution. A skinny BBL can improve the appearance of hip dips using your own fat. A natural, surgical option to achieve an even silhouette is available at our Austin, TX practice. Call our team today to book your consultation for a skinny BBL.

Who is a good candidate for a skinny BBL?

If your BMI falls between 22 and 25, you might be a perfect fit for a skinny BBL. Dr. Pearce's goal is to transfer a minimum of 500 cc of fat to each side, ensuring you're happy with the results. Ideally, he'd like to collect at least 1500 cc of fat to have enough for the transfer procedure.

What body types benefit most from a skinny BBL?

The skinny BBL is an excellent choice for patients with deep hip dips, squared-off hips, and extra fat above the buttocks, as it provides the appearance of more curves.

What if I do not have enough fat for a skinny BBL?

If you lack sufficient fat for a skinny BBL, there are two options: gaining weight to ensure enough fat for transfer to the buttocks or choosing liposuction alone to sculpt areas with fat and enhance buttock curvature. Dr. Pearce can discuss the best options for you at your consultation.

Does a skinny BBL treat cellulite?

Skinny BBL does not treat cellulite. If you have cellulite where fat is transferred, it will persist after surgery. To address this, consider our Aveli cellulite treatment 4 – 6 weeks before a skinny BBL to release the bands of tissue responsible for cellulite.

When can I see the final results after a skinny BBL?

The final results of your skinny BBL will be fully evident six months after the procedure. Visible changes emerge approximately 4 – 6 weeks after surgery, but your final size and shape will appear after the swelling dissipates at six months. The transferred fat also takes six months to settle in and soften, giving you the final outcome.

Today I am three months post op from my breast lift with a silicone implant and I cannot rant and rave enough about Dr. Pearce and his team. I received thorough and high quality care from the initial consultation to aftercare. Dr. Pearce goes above and beyond for his clients. Every single visit I was able to ask as many questions as I needed and the initial consultation with him was an hour long and I never felt rushed. Dr. Pearce even took the time to read through the FULL consent forms with me. Before booking surgery I had met with other surgeons and none of them came close to the level of detail and patience that Dr. Pearce had with me. Additionally his team answered every single question I had in reference to payment options, scheduling conflicts, and so much more. They always have great energy in the office and even made me feel so safe the day of surgery.

Dr Pearce and his staff have been so beyond amazing to work with! As someone who gets pretty squeamish around needles, they have made me feel so relaxed and at ease through it all. Dr Pearce and Amy were so incredible and Informative during my breast augmentation consultation. They answered my 100 questions and helped put my mind at ease. Getting surgery is one of my biggest fears And I know I’m choosing the right spot! Last of all, the front desk staff is sooo welcoming and sweet, even if I’m running a little bit late they have been so understanding! I’ll definitely be a life long patient!

I chose doctor Pearce to do my chin lipo after I did some research on YouTube. His videos popped up and I instantly felt very comfortable booking a consultation. I love the fact that he educates us on every procedure beforehand and that he is just a very down to earth guy and I just love him. I am very skeptical when it comes down to choosing a doctor but that was never an issue from start to finish. He is very understanding and he will do his very best to give you the results that you are looking for. I would definitely choose him for any other procedure I decide to get in the future.
