Larger, rounder butts are “in style” these days. With the rise in popularity of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, there has also been a rise in the number of people seeking out cosmetic procedures to look more like Kim K, including Brazilian butt lifts. Before you decide on getting BBL surgery, you should know these 6 things.
1. It looks more natural than other procedures
Some individuals have injections or implants to improve the size and shape of their buttocks, but a Brazilian butt lift offers a more natural look and feel. To decide if a BBL is the best choice for you over synthetic procedures, you should discuss the pros and cons of each with your doctor before moving forward.
2. Brazilian butt lifts are a two-for-one procedure
When you get a butt lift, the surgeon uses liposuction to collect fat from other places on the body and adds it to the buttocks area. This gives your butt a naturally full, round look. This fat will typically come from your stomach, arms, or thighs and can help the patient realize the hourglass shape they are looking for quickly.
3. Just about anyone can be a candidate
Unlike other cosmetic procedures, just about anyone can be a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift, as long as they are in good health. This is because just about everyone has some fat stored somewhere that can be used for a BBL. So, even people with the smallest body types can elect to have the surgery. Best of all, your surgeon will be able to make it look real and you won’t look “done” or fake.
4. You won’t get the same results with exercise
Many people think they will be able to get the same results as a surgical butt lift by going to the gym and doing squats. However, that simply isn’t true (or possible). While going to the gym and focusing on your glutes can help improve the look of your natural butt, it won’t fill it out or make it round as a BBL will.
5. You’ll need to take some time off
It is important to remember a Brazilian butt lift is a surgery. While it is typically an outpatient procedure, you will need to take time off work to recover at home. Most people take between seven and 10 days off. The surgeon will tell you about after-care. You will typically need to wear a compression garment at first and will also need to buy a pillow to sit on while you heal.
6. Only a licensed surgeon should perform a BBL
Be sure you do your homework and research the facility before making an appointment. There are a number of unlicensed facilities trying to perform these types of procedures as they grow in popularity. Protect yourself by going to a licensed and reputable surgeon. It is also a good idea to read reviews and testimonials before scheduling your surgery.
Once you discuss whether or not a Brazilian butt lift is a good option with your doctor, you can then begin looking for someone to perform the procedure.
