Today’s culture focuses on appearance in more than one way. The “selfie” has launched millions of photos onto social media with many taking a second glance at how they look in pictures.
This can be especially hard hitting when people pick apart their appearance and become overly critical. One of the areas we discuss with patients is the “why” behind their decision to seek plastic surgery in our New York centers.
Here’s what you should know about Brazilian butt lift (BBL) and whether you might be a good candidate.
Exercise & Healthy Lifestyle
For a rounder rump, exercise and healthy living go a long way. When someone has a bottom that begins to flatten or sag over time, the culprits are usually lack of exercise and too much sitting. Both of these situations can lead to a less than desirable shape.
Eating less sugar, drinking more water, and avoiding processed foods can all contribute to less cellulite development (fewer lumps and bumps).
Clean eating goes much deeper than skin deep, of course. People with healthy lifestyles enjoy a better quality of life due to fewer diseases and illnesses.
Exercising is one of the best ways you can give yourself a new shape from the deep muscle layers of the buttocks and thighs. In fact, waist whittling abdominal exercises combined with buttocks and thigh moves can transform the body in about 90 days.
“Why?” is the Best Question to Ask
A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that removes fat from other areas of the body such as the hips, thighs, and tummy and then purifies the fat so it can be injected into the buttocks.
Fat transfer buttock augmentation is especially popular today due to its 100% natural filler material (your own body fat) and the fact that no implants are used. This means the body won’t reject it.
When we see patients for a free consultation, we always ask them why they have decided that surgery is their best chance at getting the body shape they desire.
To our delight, most patients have a healthy lifestyle already and have found that their efforts have simply not produced the results they expected. For a few patients, however, a poor body image or Body Dysmorphic Disorder is the reason they seek surgery.
In cases where a patient has an unrealistic view of their body, or for those who have unrealistic expectations of their results, we have to recommend they seek counseling and take more time to think about surgery.
It is our desire that each patient receives the results they were expecting and is happy with how they look afterward.
Other reasons why we might deny or delay surgery:
- Those in poor health
- Those with not enough body fat to harvest from
