What Is a BBL Revision?
Can you redo a BBL? Yes! A procedure called a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) revision is performed to correct a failed BBL. When performing a BBL revision, the first step is identifying why the first surgery was unsuccessful. The techniques used for a BBL revision vary based on the reason for the initial BBL failure. The most common reason for a BBL revision is an immediate loss of volume following surgery. However, there are many reasons why a patient may seek a revision that range from general dissatisfaction with their results to surgical deformities.
How Does a Revision BBL Differ From a Primary BBL?
The main difference between a primary BBL and a revision BBL is the level of care needed while planning and performing surgery. During a second BBL, the surgeon is dealing with tissue that has already undergone liposuction. As a result, the surgeon must navigate scarring while attempting to remove fat cells. This is a complicated task due to the fact that extra force is needed to penetrate tissue to scrape out fat. Generally, a surgeon will begin with “virgin” areas of tissue that were not included in the initial BBL in order to remove what is referred to as “non-traumatized” fat. If the surgeon cannot create the desired results for the revision using virgin fat alone, liposuction will be performed on the areas that were already suctioned during the initial BBL. Using ultrasound-guided liposuction can be critical for successfully removing both virgin and “scarred” fat cells from the body.
Overall, a BBL revision is more complicated and technical than a first-time BBL. Scarring may be more prominent the second time around. While both a revision and primary BBL will produce immediate results, the additional swelling associated with a revision can prolong the recovery period by several weeks.
Reasons for a Brazilian Butt Lift Revision
A BBL revision is an option whenever a patient feels unsatisfied with the results of their initial BBL. “Shrinkage” is the most common cause. In some cases, patients lose up to 50% of their volume during the post-surgical phase. Other common reasons for BBL revisions include:
- Uneven contours.
- Improper healing.
- Residual dimples/cellulite.
- Grooves and trenches in the buttocks caused by failed fat grafting.
It’s important to know that you’re not stuck with the results of your BBL. Many patients suffer in shame and silence because they assume that BBL results are final. While a revision is considered a complicated procedure, the right surgeon can help you to correct abnormalities that have left you feeling self-conscious about your body following a BBL.

How Soon Can You Get a BBL Revision?
Revisions are judged on a case-by-case basis. This is why it’s important to seek a consultation with a BBL revision plastic surgeon in Miami as soon as you realize that you’re unsatisfied with your BBL results. It’s recommended for a patient to wait at least six to twelve months before undergoing revision surgery. The reason for a waiting period is that full results from the fat grafting performed in an initial BBL may take six months to solidify. It’s possible that some issues will work themselves out during the healing period.
Candidates for a BBL REvision
Any person who has concerns about the results of their BBL is considered a candidate for a BBL revision. Candidates should be capable of maintaining their weight in the pre-surgical and post-surgical periods. While weight loss can result in loss of buttocks volume, weight gain can cause high-fat areas to become accentuated.
What Is BBL Revision Recovery Like?
BBL revision recovery is very similar to recovery from a primary BBL. If you’ve undergone a BBL, you already know that it’s necessary to avoid placing pressure on the buttocks for about six weeks. Most patients can expect to take seven to 10 days off from work. Exercise should be avoided for up to six weeks. The recovery from a BBL revision is often more intense due to the complexity of a secondary surgery. Patients should be prepared for extended swelling and bleeding. Working with a skilled, properly certified surgeon with extensive experience with correcting BBLs is important for reducing your chances for complications.
BBL Round 2 Cost
The average cost for a BBL revision in Miami is $5,700. The complexity of a revision ultimately determines surgical costs. While some patients pay as little as $1,700 for a revision, others may pay $10,000 to correct extensive failure. Patients with deep scarring that requires invasive, intensive fat harvesting can generally expect to pay more to correct their BBL results.

BBL REVISION FAQS
The costs for all BBL surgeries are generally similar. While revisions are generally slightly less expensive than primary BBL surgeries, there are cases where deep scarring makes a revision far more complex than a first surgery.
Yes! It’s important to maintain a consistent weight when getting a BBL revision. Weight loss can cause patients to lose volume in their buttocks. Weight gain alters results by accentuating fat deposits. Ideally, a person should be able to stay within 10 pounds of their surgery weight in order to maintain their BBL results.
While all efforts will be made to perform a revision using existing scars, it is possible for fresh scars to be created during a BBL revision.
Like all surgical procedures, a BBL revision poses risks for infection, blood clotting, and negative reactions to anesthesia. A revision carries slightly higher risks for skin damage and contour deformities compared to an initial BBL. Risks increase when liposuction is being performed over areas that have previously undergone liposuction.
