Did you know there is a particular amount of fat you need to have before you can have a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) done? Did you know that most people have to gain a few extra pounds before they get their procedure done? A BBL requires right around 1000cc of fat to be successful and satisfactory to the patient’s ideals.
Many people often joke about eating a bunch of trash food, gaining a bunch of weight, and then having a BBL done. While this is a pretty funny joke, it should never be taken seriously. In fact, this is the exact opposite thing that surgeons want you to do, but we will talk about this more in a second!
For now, here’s more about how to properly gain fat before your procedure:
If you are someone that has to gain weight before their BBL, it is vital that you do it properly. The main recommendation for slow weight gain before the procedure is to add 300-500 calories a day more than you burn. Of course, you want to work out regularly and only eat healthy, clean meals.
That said, if you are eating more clean food than you are burning, you will slowly start to gain toned weight.
Loading up on trash food and randomly gaining a bunch of weight for a BBL procedure is not only dangerous and bad for your health, but it could mess up the results of your surgery altogether, which of course, is the last thing anyone wants to see!
Random and fast weight gain before a BBL is dangerous for a number of reasons:
Gaining too much weight too fast is never a good thing. Take it from us!
The easiest and healthiest way to gain weight for a BBL is to do it slowly and steadily. It is recommended the person take at least six months to gain the necessary weight for the procedure, depending on how much weight they need to gain. One of the best diets for the job is the same diet recommended for those wanting to fit the slim thick body type.
Some things you might consider adding to your diet include:
It is also recommended that you count your macros. There are many different apps that will help you with this. Counting macros will help you ensure you are getting enough protein, healthy fat, and carbs to help you effectively gain weight at a slow and steady pace.
Hopefully, these tips will help you figure out a diet plan that works for you to gain the proper amount of fat before your BBL!
