I know the idea of a Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL seems odd for someone in their 50’s. You automatically think of big booties from hip hop videos or Kim K. But when you really think about it, an “older” woman getting a BBL for a ptotic or droopy butt is no different than getting a breast lift for ptotic breasts.
The case for a BBL in your 50’s
After pregnancy, women can develop ptotic, pendulous breasts. Getting a breast aug and/or lift is a natural next decision by those patients. Even without pregnancy, a woman’s breasts may start to sag with age, instigating them to consider a breast lift. We wouldn’t think someone getting a breast lift or breast aug due to breast ptosis as an outrageous decision. In this context, a BBL is no different.
As we age, everyone gets a droopy butt as well. Volume is lost and the buttock skin envelope slackens. In the same way a patient would want to restore volume to their breasts, it’s not unreasonable to want to restore volume and perkiness to the buttocks either. While a BBL can be performed by placing implants into the butt, similar to implants for the breasts, the more prevailing technique is fat injections.
The benefit of using fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift is that the patient gets two operations in one. First, they undergo liposuction to the front and back of the torso to collect fat. That fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks to give the patient a fuller, more lifted buttock. This leads to better fitting clothes as well as a “lifted” attitude and outlook. So if someone you know in their 50’s is considering either a breast lift or buttock lift, don’t judge!
