Myth 1: A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) just makes your buttocks bigger
Fact: The Brazilian butt lift not only increases buttock volume, but also enhances the shape of your posterior and improves proportions with the rest of your body. This procedure is suitable for women who are not necessarily looking for a big size increase but something to fill out their yoga pants and help smooth out minor issues. It involves removing fat from areas where it is available in excess such as the axilla or arm pit, flanks, outer thighs, inner thighs, and abdomen via liposuction and injecting it into the buttocks. An additional benefit is that the removal of fat slims down these areas. Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC is performed by plastic surgeons who are skilled in liposuction and fat transfer.
Myth 2: Liposuction results in loose skin
Fact: The surgeon will remove only a limited amount of fat during a butt lift which will not make the skin sag. Moreover, liposuction using the latest energy assisted devices will tighten the skin as you recover.
Myth 3: Buttock implants are better option
Fact: Buttock implants may be appropriate for some patients, but they are not an ideal option. They often look less natural than your own fat and can shift or become uncomfortable over the years. Using your own fat to augment your buttock reduces the chances of rejection and infection. When implants are used to augment the buttocks, you will be sitting on the implants frequently, and they may flatten a bit.
Myth 4: Slender women cannot get BBL
Fact: Ideal candidates for BBL are those who are in good general health and have an appropriate body type and enough fat to harvest. This is important to produce a visible change to the buttocks. However, techniques have evolved greatly and even smaller patients who have enough fat in appropriately found places can have an effective BBL.
Myth 5: Gaining weight after BBL will ruin your results
Fact: The results of BBL surgery are long-lasting. Over time, the size and shape of the buttocks may change due to aging and gravity. This fat behaves like any other fat in your body. So, if you gain weight, the fat in your buttocks may grow and if you lose weight, you may lose some of the volume in the buttocks as the fat shrinks. Maintaining your weight and a healthy lifestyle will help you retain your results longer.
BBL does come with certain risks and most patients are concerned about the safety of the procedure. The truth is that only a plastic surgeon with extensive experience in performing BBL can do so safely and effectively. In addition to the usual safety precautions and hygiene measures, an expert would perform BBL with due regard for factors such as the amount of fat that can be safely removed, injecting the fat at the right place and depth, and the amount of fat that can be safely injected.
If you are planning to undergo BBL, choose a surgeon who is an expert in performing liposuction, as if fat removal is not performed properly, it can result in unsightly lumps, bumps and contour deformities. An experienced surgeon will be able to achieve the right balance between the removal and addition of fat to produce a beautifully shaped behind with a smaller waist. Having the treatment in AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice will ensure the highest standards of safety.
