Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) at Beverly Hills Face and Body Specialists with Dr. Alain Polynice: A Detailed Overview

Introduction to Brazilian Butt Lifts:

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a procedure designed to enhance the contour and shape of the buttocks by using a patient’s fat. A BBL Lite is the same concept but for patients who desire a more natural appearance. These results will yield a fuller or volumized look. Dr. Alain Polynice, a distinguished Breast and Body Specialist at Beverly Hills Face and Body Specialists, specializes in performing this transformative procedure.  

Initial Consultation:

The first step is an initial consultation at Beverly Hills Face and Body Specialists with Dr. Alain Polylnice. During this comprehensive meeting, Dr. Polynice assesses the patient’s anatomy, discusses their aesthetic goals, and determines their candidacy for a Brazilian Butt Lift. This personalized consultation allows for a thorough understanding of the patient’s unique needs.

Patient Candidacy: Brief Overview 

Ideal potential patients for a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) are patients who:

  • Desire a fuller, shapelier buttock contour.
  • Have sufficient donor fat from the abdomen, flanks, or thighs.
  • Are in good overall health.

Customized Treatment Plan:

Based on the consultation, Dr. Polynice will create a personalized treatment plan. This plan involves a combination of liposuction to harvest excess fat from donor areas and strategically inject this fat into specific desired areas.

 Liposuction Harvesting:

The first step involves liposuction to harvest excess fat from areas with surplus fat deposits, such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. Dr. Alain Polynice employs advanced liposuction techniques to ensure the safe and precise extraction of fat cells.

Fat Purification:

The harvested fat is purified to separate impurities, damaged cells, and excess fluids. This ensures that only healthy and viable fat cells are used for the buttock augmentation.

Injection into Buttocks:

Dr. Polynice strategically injects the purified fat into specific areas of the buttocks, meticulously sculpting and enhancing the natural curves. The injection technique is crucial for achieving symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing results.

Achieving Ideal Contours:

Throughout the procedure, Dr. Alain Polynice focuses on achieving ideal contours that complement the patient’s overall body shape. The goal is to create a lifted, youthful, and naturally proportioned appearance.

Natural-Looking Results:

As a Breast and Body Specialist, Dr. Polynice prioritizes natural-looking results. By customizing each Brazilian Butt Lift to the patient’s individual anatomy and aesthetic preferences, he ensures that the enhanced buttocks seamlessly blend with the rest of the body.

Anesthesia and Comfort:

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For The Brazillian Butt Lift (BBL) Procedure?

Determining the ideal candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) with Dr. Alain Polynice, a Breast and Body Specialist at Beverly Hills Face and Body Specialists, involves a thorough assessment of various factors. An ideal candidate typically possesses specific characteristics contributing to a safe and successful procedure. Here are the key considerations:

1. Desired Buttock Enhancement:
Ideal candidates for a BBL have a desire for buttock enhancement, seeking a fuller, lifted, and more shapely appearance. They are motivated to improve the proportions and contours of their buttocks.

2. Sufficient Fat Reserves:
Candidates should have sufficient fat reserves in donor areas, such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, or other areas with excess fat. This fat is harvested through liposuction and used for buttock augmentation.

3. Good Overall Health:
Patients must be in good health to undergo surgery safely. Dr. Alain Polynice evaluates medical history and conducts a physical examination to ensure no underlying health concerns could increase the risk of complications.

4. Realistic Expectations:
Ideal candidates have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the BBL. They understand the procedure’s limitations and will collaborate with Dr. Polynice to achieve results that align with their aesthetic goals.

5. Stable Weight:
Candidates should maintain a stable weight as fluctuations in weight can impact the longevity and consistency of results. Significant weight changes after the BBL may affect the fat graft survival and the overall appearance of the buttocks.

6. No Contraindications for Surgery:
Candidates should not have any contraindications for surgery, such as uncontrolled medical conditions or factors that may pose risks during the procedure. Dr. Polynice carefully evaluates each candidate’s health status to ensure they are suitable for surgery.

7. Skin Elasticity:
Good skin elasticity is beneficial for achieving optimal results. Candidates with good skin tone will experience better contouring outcomes. Dr. Alain Polynice assesses skin quality during the consultation.

8. Nonsmokers or Willing to Quit Smoking:
Smoking can negatively impact the healing process. Ideal candidates are nonsmokers. Or they are willing to quit smoking/vaping for a period before and after the surgery to minimize risks. Nicotine dramatically affects the healing process, which is why it is highly recommended to follow directions closely.

9. Commitment to Recovery and Aftercare:
Candidates should follow postoperative care instructions provided by Dr. Polynice and his team. This includes adherence to restrictions on sitting and sleeping positions during the initial recovery period.

10. Emotional Well-being:
Emotional well-being is an important consideration. Candidates should undergo the procedure for personal reasons and be mentally prepared for the physical and emotional changes associated with the BBL.

11. Communication and Collaboration:
Effective communication and collaboration between the candidate and Dr. Alain Polynice are crucial. Candidates should openly discuss their goals, concerns, and medical history to ensure a thorough understanding of their individual needs.

12. Pregnancy Considerations:
Candidates who have completed their family planning or are willing to delay pregnancy are ideal candidates. Pregnancy after a BBL may impact the results, and Dr. Polynice discusses timing considerations during the consultation.

13. Realizing the Artistry of Dr. Polynice:
Ideal candidates appreciate the artistry and expertise of Dr. Alain Polynice. They trust his judgment to achieve natural-looking results that harmonize with their body proportions.

14. Consultation and Assessment:
The determination of candidacy begins with a detailed consultation and assessment. Dr. Alain Polynice thoroughly evaluates each candidate’s unique anatomy, medical history, and aesthetic goals.
