What are today’s safest butt lift options?
In recent years, curvaceous and sculpted buttocks have become incredibly popular. Fueled by the Kardashians, social media, and other recent cultural shifts, the popularity of procedures that aim to enhance the buttocks has skyrocketed. Sculpted and curvaceous buttocks are seen as a sign of beauty, vitality, and health. If you want to feel confident running down the beach in your bikini, you have undoubtedly wondered what it would be like to have fuller buttocks.
But what are today’s safest butt lift options? What are the most effective buttock augmentation techniques that allow you to flaunt your body and feel confident? Below, we describe the three most effective and safest buttock augmentation techniques — Sculptra injections, Brazilian butt lift surgery (BBL surgery), and a supercharged BBL procedure.
Sculptra is a non-surgical buttock augmentation technique. Sculptra is a cosmetic injection that stimulates natural collagen production to enhance your contours. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look firm, taut, and voluminous. It binds your skin tissues together and holds them upright against the force of gravity, making your body look firm and taut. Sculptra is made of poly-l-lactic acid, a naturally occurring component that catalyzes your body’s innate collagen production capabilities.
When injected into targeted areas on the buttocks, Sculptra stimulates natural collagen production to enhance the volume of your buttocks. Your plastic surgeons will inject numerous units of Sculptra into targeted areas to stimulate collagen production and make your buttocks look fuller and tighter. However, since Sculptra relies on your body’s natural collagen production capabilities, the results gradually appear over several weeks and months. You may also need additional treatments for optimal results.
Sculptra is undoubtedly one of the safest buttock augmentation techniques available. Since it relies on your body’s natural volume enhancement capabilities, the risk of complications is negligible. However, Sculptra can only provide mild enhancements, and you have to be patient for the results. If you want dramatic buttock augmentation, you need something more powerful.
Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
Brazilian butt lift surgery, also known as the BBL procedure, is the ideal buttock augmentation procedure for dramatic results. The Brazilian butt lift surgery involves removing fat cells from other parts of your body, such as the abdomen or thighs, and injecting them into targeted areas on the buttocks. Butt augmentation with fat grafting allows you to enhance the volume and size of your buttocks using natural fat cells derived from your body, so the results look natural.
The Brazilian butt lift procedure is personalized according to your needs. The amount of fat your plastic surgeons harvest from your body depends on your goals. Furthermore, an added benefit of a Brazilian butt lift is that it also sculpts another part of your body. The surgeon can remove unwanted fat cells from another part of your body, such as the tummy, and inject them into the buttocks, helping you achieve fuller and more voluminous buttocks.
Since the Brazilian butt lift is performed using natural fat cells from your body, it’s considered to be an autologous treatment. Since we don’t use any foreign objects or butt implants, there’s no risk of infections, allergic reactions, or rejections. The fat cells will soon settle into the new position and make your buttock look fuller and tighter. However, your BBL surgery must be performed by highly skilled plastic surgeons with a strong track record to ensure long-lasting and desirable cosmetic results.
Supercharged BBL Procedure
The Supercharged BBL procedure provides even more dramatic results than the traditional Brazilian butt lift procedure. This procedure combines a traditional BBL surgery with butt implants. The surgeon places silicone butt implants within your buttocks to provide dramatic improvements in volume. In addition to placing butt implants, plastic surgeons also transfer excess fat cells from another part of your body to the buttocks, ensuring natural results.
The Supercharged BBL procedure is usually suitable for extremely thin patients who don’t have enough fat cells in the donor sites. Plastic surgeons can only harvest fat cells from your body if you have excess fat deposits in your body. But if you don’t have enough fat cells to donate, you may need to boost the results with butt implants. The Supercharged BBL procedure is perfectly safe when performed by talented and skilled plastic surgeons, but it carries a higher risk of side effects and complications than the traditional BBL procedure.
What should you not do before a BBL?
- Stop sunbathing 2 weeks before BBL surgery
- Stop smoking 2 weeks before BBL surgery
- Stop taking blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin, 2 weeks before BBL surgery
- Stop taking vitamin E and herbal supplements 2 weeks before BBL surgery
- Inform the plastic surgeons if you experience any illness or skin infections
What do I need to know before getting a BBL?
- BBL simultaneously reduces excess fat cells from a donor site and augments the buttocks
- BBL offers completely natural results because it’s performed using your natural fat cells
- BBL results can change over time as your body reabsorbs some of the fat cells
- BBL surgery is suitable for people with all kinds of bodies
What should I ask at a BBL consultation?
You should ask your plastic surgeons the following questions during your BBL consultation:
- How many Brazilian butt lift procedures have you performed?
- What do you recommend if a patient doesn’t have excess fat cells in the donor site?
- How can you help me with the recovery process?
- Have you ever dealt with BBL complications? How do you handle those complications?
