The Role of Exercise and Muscle Building in Enhancing Brazilian Buttlift (BBL) Results
Dr. Kenneth Hughes in Los Angeles has performed thousands of Brazilian buttlifts or BBLs and is an expert in the field. Less than 1% of plastic surgeons have performed this number of BBLs. Liposuction and Brazilian buttlift are plastic surgery procedures typically utilized to overcome genetic limitations in form that cannot be improved to the desired extent by diet and exercise alone. However, after the surgical procedure, strength training and muscle building can often be employed to maintain or further improve the surgical result.
Dr. Kenneth Hughes is often asked by patients about suggestions about working out or bodybuilding after Brazilian buttlift to maintain results or possibly improve results. There are several factors to consider. First, building muscle does not necessarily reduce the fat in an area. Similarly, fat cannot be converted into muscle. Having said that, strength training can be employed to improve muscle bulk of the buttocks to amplify Brazilian buttlift results. Any increase in muscle will reveal itself as an increase in projection and size and could potentially tighten the skin envelope as well.
Another key factor to consider is that any decrease in body fat may have a significant impact on the size of the butt or any area into which fat was transferred. Thus, weight should be carefully assessed if anyone is to undertake any weight loss, because it can change dimensions and produce a physique that may not be as pleasing as the individual had wanted. Similarly, weight gain after BBL can result in substantial increases in the size of the butt, hips, or other areas of transfer.
Finally, a word of caution is prudent about the recovery period following the surgery. After a Brazilian buttlift is performed, the patient should not diet or calorie restrict or exercise for at least 6 weeks after the surgery is performed. This will ensure that the healing proceeds in as optimal fashion as possible and the fat survival percentage is as high as possible.
