What is petite BBL?
Petite BBL is a plastic surgery performed to improve the butt shape of the small-framed woman. The surgery can be performed under general or local anesthesia depending on the amount of operated fat. It has 3 stages, which are fat removal, fat purification, and fat transfer.
During the operation, the plastic surgeon suctions the required amount of fat from small incisions, purifies the fat, and transfers it to the butt. The procedure takes about 2 hours, depending on the amount of fat that needs to be transferred.
How is it different from traditional BBL?
The procedures are the same, except for a factor, which is the patient type. Petite BBL focuses on small-framed, short women, who are around 5’4″ in height. On the contrary, in traditional BBL there is no such a condition that focuses on height. So, even if petite BBL and traditional BBL sound like 2 completely different surgery, they are actually not that different from each other.

We just learned what is a petite BBL and how it is different from a traditional BBL. But what about the overall petite BBL experience? In the sections below, we talked about the preparation period, its benefits and risks, and of course, the recovery. Let’s start by learning what you need to do before undergoing a petite Brazilian Butt Lift.
The preparation period for petite BBL is the same as traditional BBL prep. At first, you will stop smoking as soon as you can because it makes incisions hard to heal and increases complications risks such as anesthesia complications (1). Then, you will start to eat healthily and take certain vitamins such as iron. The reason for doing these is to be in the best health condition for the operation.
Also, you will need to buy helpful items such as BBL cushions and take some tests to make sure your medical condition is suitable for the surgery. For further and detailed information, you can jump into our “How to prepare for a BBL?” article.
Benefits & risks
Benefits and risks are one of the essential topics in the decision-making process. These make you see if the procedure is what you are looking for, and it shows the possible unpleasant outcomes of the surgery, which you may not want to experience. Let’s look at the bullets below and learn what you can expect from a petite BBL surgery.
Benefits of petite BBL:
- More rounder figure, a fuller butt
- Enhanced hip dips
- Natural appearance
- Self-confidence boost
- Long-lasting results
Risks of petite BBL:
- Asymmetry can be seen among buttocks
- It may be bigger than you desire
- Swelling occurs in the surgery sites
- Itching can occur
- Scarring can be seen on BBL incisions
Most of the risks we mentioned above are not serious, and they can be taken care of after the procedure easily. You can also ask your surgeon during the initial consultation about further details.
The recovery period will be the same as a traditional BBL recovery. However, if only small improvements will be made in the buttocks, you can recover faster compared to a regular BBL patient. Since the surgeon doesn’t operate too much on the body while removing and transferring a small amount of fat, the patient can recover faster from the surgery because the body doesn’t get much damage.
In about 6 months following the procedure, you will be able to see the final shape of the butt. That is because even if small amounts of fat were transferred into your buttocks, your body will react to the tissue damage, resulting in swelling. Although swelling will not affect your final results, it takes several months to be gone completely. That is why you need to wait to see your final shape.
However, in the end, Petite BBL will make you like your body more which will boost your confidence, and the clothes will look better. As long as you maintain a stable weight, or don’t change your proportions with exercise, petite BBL results will stay with you for years.

Should you gain weight for the surgery?
The surgeons don’t recommend gaining weight before BBL. When you gain weight, you don’t know to what part of the body the fat will settle. It may go to the parts where performing liposuction is not planned, and cause unwanted look after the procedure. As a result, you may look for additional liposuction surgery to reach the shape you desire. That is why you should undergo BBL with your current weight and keep it stable.
Cost of petite BBL
The average cost of petite BBL in the USA is $9000. However, the price can change depending on the location. The USA has the most expensive healthcare in the world. Therefore, its cost in the USA is the highest in the world. However, if you go to Europe, you can expect a price way more affordable price. For that reason, some people think that traveling to another country to undergo a petite BBL operation is a good idea.
