Beauty as we know it has changed. Gone are the days when you have to spend considerable years on a beauty routine to achieve flawless skin or a fantastic figure. With clinical procedures like Brazilian butt lift, BBL, you can up the size of your butt in a matter of minutes.
If you consider your backside not as plump or contoured as you’d prefer it, getting a butt lift may have crossed your mind. But before making your decision, it’s worth understanding some things.
Brazilian butt lifts are surgical procedures performed to improve the buttocks’ size, shape, and outline.
This may involve using buttock implants or taking fat from other body parts and filling the buttocks with it to increase its size. Some procedures, such as BBL by Beautify at AMS, use both methods to give the best results: an improved tone, volume, added lift, and cellulite improvement. The procedure also usually involves radio-frequency and Sculptra.
It’s always a great idea to ask your cosmetic surgeon if you’re a good candidate for a butt lift.
Typically, you’d make a good BBL candidate if:
- You don’t smoke
- You fall within the healthy weight range
- You’ve lost volume in your butt due to drastic weight loss or age
- You’ve lost your natural shape due to weight gain
- You’re healthy, with a healthy lifestyle
- You have no history of surgery-related infections or complications
Statistics show that Brazilian butt lift has a fatality rate of 0.033%, that’s 1 in 3000. However, how safe it is depends on how properly the procedure is carried out. It’s worth choosing a reputable state-of-the-art clinic such as Beautify at AMS to ensure your safety and a perfect outcome.
While a Brazilian butt lift may involve some implants alongside grafting, permanent silicone implants are strictly advised against.
That’s because permanent silicone implants usually cause malignant side effects.
The best and safest way to give you a well-rounded butt is using fat grafting. Here, fat from other parts of your body, such as the tummy, is taken and injected into your buttocks. Since you’re using natural “fillers” from your own body, there’s no allergic reaction — your body doesn’t reject it. Additionally, your butt looks and feels more natural.
Sculptra is also used as it adds more volume to your buttocks. So if you don’t have enough fat and want a more voluptuous butt, Sculptra’s liquid butt lift is the way to go.
The cost of a Brazilian butt lift procedure varies with the patient’s aesthetic needs. If there’s more work to be done, then the price would reasonably be higher.
Brazilian butt lift may cost anything from $2,000 to $12,000. However, beware of cheap prices as you may risk falling into the hands of inexperienced beauticians looking for quick money.
Like other cosmetic surgeries, you’d need to take particular care after a Brazilian butt lift. You would have to avoid sitting for two weeks after the procedure. This also means you’d be sleeping on your side or stomach during that time. You may also need to go for more than one procedure to achieve the desired results.
But the good news is the outcome of a BBL lasts for years.
