Do I Qualify for a Skinny Mini BBL?

Do I Qualify For A Skinny Mini BBL

Would you like to improve the contours of your waist, hips, and buttocks with a skinny mini BBL — but you aren’t sure if you qualify?

The skinny mini BBL is a specialized version of the Brazilian butt lift. It is designed for individuals who desire a natural-looking waist and hip contour, but may not have a lot of excess body fat to work with. 

In this blog post, we will explore what a skinny mini BBL entails, its key features, and the requirements for surgery qualification. We’ll also discuss how it differs from a standard BBL and the cost involved. 

Read on to find out if this procedure is right for you!

What Is a Skinny Mini BBL?

Skinny Mini CostA skinny mini BBL, also known as a mini Brazilian butt lift or a skinny Brazilian butt lift, is a cosmetic procedure that produces subtle enhancement to the buttocks without the need for a lot of excess body fat. It is a great procedure if you are relatively slim or athletic, but you just want a slight amount of fat injected to correct hip dips or extend the projection of the buttocks.

Brazilian butt lifts, in general, have essentially replaced the need for butt implants across the board. More and more patients are going with all-natural fat transfer procedures. Depending on how much fat a patient has, the best skinny BBL surgeons can harvest fat from nearly anywhere and relocate it to the hips and buttocks.

Unlike a traditional Brazilian butt lift, which involves plastic surgeons transferring a significant amount of fat from the waistline to the buttocks in order to achieve more dramatic results, the skinny Brazilian butt lift focuses on a modest improvement in volume and shape. 

The procedure starts with the extraction of excess fat from areas like the abdomen, thighs, or flanks through liposuction. The removed fat is then purified and processed before being carefully injected into the buttocks, ultimately creating a more youthful and shapely “hourglass” body contour.

How to Qualify for Skinny Mini BBL Surgery

The best skinny BBL patients are non-smokers and lead healthy lifestyles. Eating healthy food, drinking plenty of water, avoiding drugs and excess alcohol, and exercising regularly are all good habits to have.

Here are some additional requirements to consider:

Having Enough Excess Body Fat: To qualify for a skinny Brazilian butt lift, you must have enough fat in other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or flanks. This usually means that you cannot have an extremely low BMI (body mass index). 

Traditional Brazilian butt lift surgeries are typically performed on those patients who are carrying a significant amount of excess fat that they’d like to get rid of. The harvested fat serves as the source for enhancing the buttocks. Therefore, individuals with very low body fat may not be suitable candidates for this procedure.

Realistic Expectations: It is essential to have realistic expectations concerning your mini BBL results. This procedure offers a subtle enhancement, and prospective patients should understand and be content with the expected outcome. 

Good Overall Health: Like any surgical procedure, you should be in good overall health to undergo any type of fat transfer procedure, including a skinny BBL or any other cosmetic surgery. This includes being free from any medical conditions that may hinder the healing process or increase the risk of complications.

Good Skin Elasticity: Adequate skin elasticity is necessary to ensure that the skin can adapt to the newly enhanced contours of the buttocks. Your surgeon will assess this during your initial consultation. 

Desire for a Subtle Enhancement: The skinny BBL surgery is specifically designed for those seeking a more modest enhancement to their buttocks. If you desire a more significant volume increase, a traditional Brazilian butt lift with a larger fat transfer might be a better option.

What If You Don’t Qualify for a Skinny Mini BBL?

Skinny Mini BBL CostIf you don’t qualify for a skinny BBL procedure due to inadequate fat deposits or other reasons, you may still have alternatives to help you achieve your desired shape. 

For some patients, traditional Brazilian butt lift surgery may be an option. During a standard BBL, a larger amount of fat cells are harvested and transferred to the buttocks to achieve a more significant transformation. Most of the time, traditional BBL patients have a significant amount of excess fat on their abdomen and back. Removing this extra fat and transferring it to the buttocks will not only give you a larger butt and hips, but it will also give you a beautifully snatched waist too.

Finally, others may consider non-surgical treatments like Sculptra injections for buttock augmentation. In the end, it’s crucial to discuss all of these options with your plastic surgeon beforehand so that you can determine the best approach for your unique situation.

The Cost of a Skinny Mini BBL

Your skinny mini BBL cost can vary depending on several factors, including the surgeon’s expertise, the location of the surgery, and the extent of liposuction required. On average, the cost of a skinny BBL procedure ranges from $8,000 to $15,000, but again, this varies. Your ultimate BBL cost typically covers the surgeon’s fees, anesthesia charges, facility expenses, and post-operative follow-up appointments.
