One of the latest trends in body contouring, a Brazilian butt lift in NYC provides women with a well-shaped curvy posterior using their own fat. The popularity of the treatment has soared as it provides beautiful natural looking outcomes without the hassles associated with implants. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), BBL or buttock augmentation using fat grafting increased by 10% in 2017 over the previous year.
The Aesthetic Channel recently reported on a study which says that combining cellulite treatment along with BBL can provide superior aesthetic results and is a “patient-pleaser”. The study notes that combining BBL with cellulite treatment prevents indented scarring and smoothes the skin’s contour around the buttocks. The outcomes from this approach found to be predictable, reproducible and satisfying for patients who want the bubble butt contour.
Cellulite, the dimpled skin in the buttocks, thighs and hips, is a common concern among women. It appears when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin, causing the skin to appear lumpy. Factors causing cellulite include:
- Hormonal factors
- Aging (the skin becomes less taut and can sag, and look dimply)
- Poor diet
- A sedentary lifestyle
- Wearing restrictive clothing that does not allow proper blood to flow
The common areas where cellulite can be seen are buttocks and hips. Regardless of whether they’re skinny or overweight, women are more to develop cellulite because they have different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue from men which influence the development of cellulite. Up to 80 and 90 percent of women may experience cellulite at some point in their lives. Though cellulite is not harmful, it makes many women embarrassed when they’re in swimsuits and short shorts.
Buttock augmentation using fat grafting provides natural looking results as it simply involves adding more fat to the existing fat on your posterior. BBL procedure is a combination of liposuction and fat grafting. The first component is precise liposuction to extract fat from areas where it is available in excess. Typically, this includes the back, stomach, and thighs. In the second step, the fat is purified after liposuction procedure, reducing it down to a fraction of that which was originally extracted and finally, the refined fat is transferred back to the buttocks, that is, the surgeon will remove fat from where you don’t want it and put it exactly where you want it to help you achieve a curvy, well-shaped butt. Skilled surgeons will balance fat removal and addition is a way as to maximize the body’s natural curves.
