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.

Dr. Pearce is amazing! He takes his time, is very informative and makes you feel comfortable. His staff is also friendly and welcoming! I was nervous to get lip filler for the first time, but I’m very happy with my results thanks to Dr. Pearce :)

Dr. Pearce was on call at Round Rock Medical Center at a very difficult moment for my family. My son experienced a very bad motorcycle accident on Sept. 12, 2022 and Dr. Pearce operated on him to repair the cosmetic results of severe head trauma. He has operated on my son 3 times, the last one being 2 days ago. He did miraculous work in restoring my son’s head shape and eye socket to normal. He worked for 6.5 hours in surgery this time to fix some abnormalities and my son looks great. We are so grateful to Dr. Pearce!

After a major weight loss and a few uncomfortable consultations, I decided to look outside the San Antonio area to have a tummy tuck and an arm lift. Dr Pearce was my first consultant after expanding my search. When I walked in his office, I was greeted with the biggest smiles. After meeting Dr Pearce, I knew I found my surgeon!! I’m a year post op and feel amazing! Dr Pearce is a perfectionist!! I’ve recommended him to a couple people!

About Us
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.
