Meet the Cosmetic Craze of the Summer: The Male 360 Lipo + BBL Combo
Regardless how many crunches you do or calories you cut, if you’re still battling the belly bulge and want to boost the behind, a 360 Liposuction procedure combined with a trendy BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) may be just what your core is craving.
Whittling the middle, carving the core, contouring the waist, sculpting the back and chest, PLUS getting a boost in the back end are common cosmetic goals for today’s body-conscious males. More and more men are requesting the same hot, cosmetic procedures and body-beautifying packages that have long-appealed to their female counterparts. One of the most popular cosmetic procedures that continually seems to top the “most-wanted list” is the all-inclusive 360 Lipo + BBL combo. This comprehensive, cosmetic combo can be easily achieved by removing unwanted, stubborn pockets of fat from trouble zones, such as the belly/waistline, flanks, back, or chest/male breasts, and strategically re-injecting the same fat into the buttocks for a more lifted, fuller, firmer, defined appearance, even for the discerning fellow. The entire two-part procedure results in a more symmetrical, masculine-looking physique that’s on every guy’s list of body goals. And NOT a squat in sight! Dr. Johnson Lee understands while men and women both prefer to have the same types of procedures and may have similar aesthetic goals, the two genders are quite different in a variety of ways. With years of experience and deep, extensive knowledge of the stark differences between skin texture, thickness, bone structure, and muscularity, Dr. Johnson Lee can tailor his signature, surgical techniques to achieve the patient’s desired look, and one that is appropriate to their gender.
Men looking to remove hard-to-budge fat pockets from their midsection, flanks (spare tire), and back, while also enhancing, accentuating, and defining the derriere department are seeking the trendy 360 Lipo + BBL traditionally sought after by females. Achieving a more balanced, proportionate physique that boasts a contoured, carved core, sculpted chest and back, as well as a fuller, firmer bottom can be completed in a singe session. Here’s how your total transformation happens.
Step One: 360 Lipo
A 360 liposuction procedure begins with preparing the patient with general anesthesia. Then, the unwanted, stubborn pockets of fat are removed through tiny (a few mm long) incisions that are typically made in the body’s natural creases for apt scar concealment. A small, hollow tube known as a canula is inserted through the incisions and beneath the skin to suction out the subcutaneous fat. The suctioned fat is then placed in a centrifuge where it is purified of any bacteria before it is strategically re-injected into other areas needing more volume, fullness, and “plump,” such as the buttocks. (Some women may have the fat re-injected into their breasts, also known as a fat-transfer breast augmentation.)
Most men are looking to attain the traditional, triangular torso or “V” visage – broad, flat chest and major muscle definition in the abs, back, hips, and buttocks. Common areas men seek to remove stubborn fat through a 360-liposuction procedure include:
- Flanks (spare tire)
- Chest/male breasts
- Under chin
Basically, Dr. Johnson Lee “sculpts” the entire torso, removing unwanted pockets of fat from some areas and transferring that same fat to other areas, such as the buttocks, in this case. The value of cosmetic procedures lies in the surgeon’s unique artistic talents and elevated aesthetic eye.
Step Two: BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) or Gluteal Augmentation
The second part of the 360 lipo + BBL combo package consists of boosting, lifting, firming, filling, and volumizing the buttocks for a more masculine, muscular contour. A BBL aims to enhance the male’s natural gluteal, waist, and hip contour by strategically injecting the suctioned fat that was removed from other areas and sculpting a more accentuated shape. The result is a more proportionate, “pleasing” plump rump. Dr. Johnson Lee specializes in tailoring male BBLs exactly to each individual’s goals from softer “bubble” butts to strong “gladiator” glutes seen in athletes.
Results and Recovery of the Male 360 Lipo + BBL
Most men who undergo the 360 lipo + BBL combo can expect to see immediate results, though there will be a considerable amount of swelling for the first few weeks. After several months, most patients will begin to enjoy final results of their two-pronged procedure.
As previously mentioned, the 360 lipo + BBL combo is performed under local anesthesia on an out-patient basis, meaning the patient can expect to go home the same day. It’s highly advised the patient have a reliable friend or family member to drive them home after their procedure since the effects of the anesthesia are expected to linger for some time. Patients should expect to be sore, tender, and bruised in both the liposuction and injection sites for at least the first 7-10 days following the procedure. Men should expect not to go back to the gym for the first 2-4 weeks and avoid heavy lifting or strenuous workouts for at least 8 weeks. Consult with your doctor before returning to any physical activity. Side-sleeping and avoiding direct-sitting on the buttocks will ensure the new, sculpted shape retains its new, plump appearance. In some cases, patients may need to wear compression garments to reduce swelling, drain excess fluids, and help skin to sculpt over new contours for a smooth, sleek look. Be sure to check- in with your doctor regarding any aftercare questions or concerns you may have and be sure to follow-up with your post-op appointments to assess healing and progress.
