Skinny BBL Uncovered: Sculpting the Body When You’re Naturally Lean
Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift is an amazing option for people who have a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) and want to improve the shape of their body. This procedure involves transferring small amounts of your own fat into your buttocks to give them a more full and rounded appearance.
In this blog post, we’re going to dive deep into the nitty-gritty of the Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift. We’ll talk about how it works, what you can expect, and help you figure out if it’s the right cosmetic surgery choice for you.
Here at the Centre for Surgery, our team of surgeons have been trailblazers in making the Brazilian Butt Lift even safer. They have years of hands-on experience specifically with the Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift, and they use an advanced technique guided by ultrasound. This makes the procedure more precise and reduces risks. So, if you’re looking to make a change and get closer to your dream body, our skilled surgeons are the ideal professionals to help you achieve just that.
Our plastic surgeons commonly get asked at least every week by patients, “am I too skinny for a Brazilian Butt Lift“. This is often because they have been seen and turned away by other surgeons because they do not have enough fat. So what is the actual answer to this question?
What Exactly is a Skinny BBL?
A Brazilian Butt Lift, commonly known as a BBL, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that enhances the size and shape of the buttocks. But what if you have a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) and less available body fat? That’s where a Skinny BBL comes in. Contrary to what you might think, you don’t have to rule out the possibility of getting a BBL just because you have a leaner physique. A Skinny BBL allows those with less available body fat to still experience the benefits of a fuller, shapelier behind by transferring smaller amounts of fat to the buttock area.
Comparing Skinny BBL and Regular BBL: What’s the Difference?
When it comes to a regular Brazilian Butt Lift, the surgeon typically has a larger amount of fat to work with. They can usually collect around 1000ml of fat for each buttock through liposuction. This means they can achieve more dramatic results in terms of size and shape.
In contrast, a Skinny BBL involves a lesser amount of fat, usually around 500ml for each side of the buttocks. Because there is less excess fat available on skinnier patients, the surgeon often has to perform liposuction across multiple areas of the body to gather enough fat for the procedure. This might include the abdomen, thighs, or even arms.
It’s worth noting that even though the amounts of fat used differ, the objective remains the same: to create a fuller, more sculpted backside that suits your body shape and size. It just means that the procedure is adapted to work effectively with the amount of fat you have available, so you too can enjoy the confidence-boosting effects of a Brazilian Butt Lift.
At Centre for Surgery, our skilled team of surgeons is particularly experienced in performing both types of BBL. They’re experts in adjusting the technique to suit each individual’s body type, ensuring that you get the best possible results tailored just for you. So whether you’re more suited for a Skinny BBL or a regular BBL, you’re in safe and capable hands.
Am I suitable for a Skinny BBL?
Whether a patient is a suitable candidate for a skinny BBL depends on several factors, of which the most important is the patient’s goals for treatment. Our surgeons often spend up to 1 hour during the initial consultation learning about your ideas, concerns and expectations for treatment. Taking a complete medical history and carrying out a physical examination form the foundation of assessing your suitability for a skinny BBL in London. It is always essential to bear in mind that a Brazilian butt lift procedure in the UK is not just about creating large buttocks by injecting large volumes of fat. Many leaner patients are more interested in the targeted removal of residual fat pockets from areas of the body that have proven resistant to diet and exercise and transferring this fat to enhance the projection of the buttocks. In the same procedure, your surgeon can also fill in hip dips and enhance the silhouette with 360 liposuction or lipo 360. If you have been turned away by a surgeon because it is felt that you are too skinny for a BBL, then book in to see one of our surgeons, as they are highly experienced in carrying out skinny BBL surgery.

What is the ideal weight for skinny BBL surgery?
The best way to determine an ideal candidate for BBL surgery is to assess the patient’s body fat percentage or BMI rather than their actual body weight. Based on the individual anatomy and body shape, this forms the basis for a more accurate assessment of how much fat can be safely removed with liposuction.
How Much Fat Is Needed For A Skinny BBL?
The amount of fat that is required for a skinny BBL in London depends on several factors, including the technique that the surgeon uses, the patient’s expectations for treatment, the anatomical shape, the amount of fat reserves available in the area to be treated with liposuction and the anticipated level of fat survival.
Many slimmer patients may only be aiming for a subtle change in the size and shape of the buttocks, and in this case, a smaller amount of fat for BBL may be enough. Patients looking to achieve more dramatic results should remember that up to 800 ml to 1000 ml of fat could be required for a pleasing skinny BBL result. As with all fat transfer procedures, it should be borne in mind that a small amount of fat will be reabsorbed by the body after a skinny BBL. Your surgeon always takes this into account when planning how much to harvest and how much to reinject.
Am I too slim for a BBL?
In most cases that we see Centre for Surgery, patients who have sufficient reserves in the subcutaneous fat layer are amenable to being removed by liposuction and used for fat transfer to the buttocks. In most cases, patients will have 360 liposuction from the abdomen, flanks or thighs. Patients who may be very slim with a lower percentage of body fat may not have sufficient excess fat, which is available for the skinny BBL. In these cases, buttock augmentation with silicone implants may be an appropriate treatment option.
Many of our patients ask our surgeons if it is worth gaining weight for BBL surgery. Although it may seem like a common-sense solution to allow for sufficient fat transfer to the buttocks, it is not recommended in practice. Any fat cells that have been transferred to the buttocks can reduce if the patient subsequently loses weight, and all patients must continue to maintain a stable weight after a skinny BBL to maintain the results over time. If patients gain weight before a skinny BBL and then lose weight following the procedure, this will most likely hurt the results and may even lead to a reversal of the changes created by the skinny BBL surgery.
How is a Skinny BBL Carried Out?
The first step in a Skinny Brazilian Butt Lift involves liposuction to collect excess fat from different parts of your body. Typically, fat is harvested from areas like the stomach, hips, and thighs. However, since individuals with a lower BMI have less fat available, it’s often necessary to perform liposuction on multiple areas to gather enough fat for the procedure. This might mean also targeting regions like the arms or even the lower back to ensure that there is a sufficient amount of fat for transfer.
Once the fat is collected, it undergoes a purification process. This involves separating the harvested fat from other bodily fluids to ensure that only the highest quality fat cells are used for the next step.
After purification, the next stage is the actual fat transfer. Here’s where our surgeons at Centre for Surgery employ a safer, ultrasound-guided BBL technique for fat injection. This method allows for greater precision in placing the fat, and it’s designed to reduce risks associated with the procedure, such as pulmonary embolisms. Unlike traditional methods that may inject fat into or underneath the gluteal muscle, our ultrasound-guided approach ensures that the fat is injected above the muscle layer. This minimises risks while still achieving the fuller, rounder shape you desire for your buttocks.
