BBL under local anesthesia
Consult with a few experienced board certified plastic surgeons before making your decision.
I would say your case is more for a Gluteoplasty than a BBL...
Thanks for your question.
To be honest with you, by looking at your photos it doesn't seem to me that you're a good candidate for a BBL. A BBL is the marketing name for Liposuction for contouring the surrounding areas of the butt and Fat grafting to enhance the shape and/or projection of the gluteal region as a whole. You seem to be a very slim woman, and the harvested fat would be too little to achieve a perceivable outcome.
That said, if you're looking for a butt enhancement (shape and projection) a Gluteoplasty (Butt augmentation with Silicone Implants) seems like a better indication for your case. The little harvested fat can be used to retouch the details around the butt of a more natural look. I know normally patients are scared of thinking about a silicone implant inside their buttocks, but it's actually a very secure process that can lead to great outcomes (in the hands of someone that is used to doing this procedure). Butt implants have bad reputation due to exaggerated results, but a small butt implant can generate a round perky butt without it appearing vulgar.
Your case even looks very much alike one of the cases in my website (Click on the web reference so you can have a look).
**SIDE NOTE*** Funny thing is, in Brazil (where I did my training) most women undergo Butt Implants much more than Fat Grafting, and they call the later Brazilian Butt Lift.
Bottom line: I believe that your case applies much more to a Gluteoplasty than BBL, for the simple fact that you have very little fat.
Now, when it comes to anesthesia that is the anesthesiologist department and he'll choose the best option for you. The important thing is that you are relaxed during the whole process and the anesthesiologist (a qualified one at least) would never have you awake during the peridural process. So, for all that it matters for you, it would be "like" local.
Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me for any other doubt you may have.
Good luck on your journey,
Dr. Fernandez Goico
