What is a Face Brazilian Butt Lift (FaceBBL)?

Facial contouring procedures are constantly evolving to cater to the various desires and aspirations of individuals seeking to enhance the natural beauty of their facial appearance. One of the hottest and most innovative procedures that have started to gain significant attention is the FaceBBL. While the traditional Brazilian Butt Lift primarily focuses on augmenting and making the buttocks appear bigger. This new twist on the procedure allows plastic surgeons to target facial rejuvenation, offering a holistic approach to enhance one’s facial appearance.

Understanding the Traditional Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

Before we look at this revolutionary “FaceBBL” treatment, let’s briefly explore the traditional Brazilian Butt Lift procedure and where FaceBBL is derived from. The original Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical technique designed to enhance the shape and volume of the buttocks.

This is achieved by harvesting fat from areas like the abdomen, thighs, or flanks and then purifying and injecting the excess fat into the buttocks. The goal is to create a more lifted and better shape area while achieving body contouring through fat removal from other areas simultaneously.

Introducing the Face Brazilian Butt Lift

The concept of the “FaceBBL” is derived from the traditional BBL procedure and applied to the face. Instead of focusing on the buttocks, this procedure combines facial rejuvenation techniques with fat transfer to achieve a more youthful and balanced appearance. The FaceBBL encompasses two main aspects, and these include the following:

  1. Fat harvesting: Similar to the traditional BBL, excess fat is harvested from areas like the neck, buccal fat pads, thighs, and love handles and then purified before being injected strategically into areas of the face that have lost volume. This can include the cheeks, temples, and under-eye hollows. Once this fat is removed, it will create a valley and a more defined look.
  2. Fat Transfer: Once the areas with excess fat have been harvested, they will be transferred to areas needing more volume. This will then create a peak-like effect.

Benefits and Considerations of FaceBBL

If you are one of the many people that have areas in your face that need more volume and other regions that need excess fat to be taken away, then this treatment may be right for you. It offers several benefits for individuals seeking comprehensive facial rejuvenation:

  • Natural Results:  This treatment utilizes the patient’s own fat. No chemicals are used and this reduces the risk of allergic reactions or rejections to the therapy, leading to more natural-looking results.
  • Dual Benefits: Combining fat removal from unwanted areas with facial volume restoration creates a harmonious enhancement. The results lead to peaks and valleys in the contour of the face, making the face look more evenly structured and defined.
  • Minimally Invasive: The procedure is typically less invasive than traditional facelifts, resulting in shorter recovery times and permanent results.

What To Expect from FaceBBL at Many Faces of Chicago

Dr. Benjamin Caughlin is a double-board-certified plastic surgeon, and you can be guaranteed, thanks to his years of experience in facial rejuvenation procedures, that the results of your treatment are going to be incredible.

The approach to this procedure is comprehensive and includes the following:

Two Initial Consultations

First, you will have a virtual consultation with Dr. Caughlin to go over the procedure, talk about the areas you want to be treated, and decide whether or not this treatment may be right for you. If you decide to continue with the process, you will book an in-person consultation with Dr. Caughlin.

At Many Faces of Chicago, they recognize that not everyone lives in Chicago, and many want the treatment but have to travel for the consultation and procedure. As an added bonus for choosing their clinic, they will fly you to Chicago, a $500 value, so that you can meet with him in person. Your in-person consultation will give Dr. Caughlin a chance to study your face and determine the unique technique he will use and the areas that will be targeted.

The Treatment

On your treatment day, you will arrive at their state-of-the-art facility and get prepared for your procedure. Thanks to this treatment being minimally invasive, you will not have to be put under. A numbing cream will be applied so that you don’t feel anything. Excess fat will be removed from one area of the face, neck, or body and then be introduced to the area where volume is needed, creating beautiful peaks and valleys in the face.

The Recovery Process

You can expect to have a “puffy” face for about 7-10 days. Patients generally do not experience any discomfort during the recovery period and can tend to do easy and simple tasks during this period. Once the “puffy” appearance starts to go down, you will almost immediately see a difference in the contour of your face.

Final results tend to appear anywhere between 3 to 6 months following your procedure. This is due to the fact that when the fat is introduced into a new part of the face, it needs to connect to the new tissues and grow over time.

How much does the FaceBBL procedure cost?
