3 Things You Wish You Knew Before Your Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
So, like pretty much half the women across New York City (and even a decent percentage of men!), you’re considering the world famous, Lipo360 and BBL procedure known around the world, as the Brazilian Butt Lift! While its origins in Brazilian are certainly debatable, the popularity of this life changing BBL procedure most definitely are not! Made famous by women from nearly every walk of life, from the richest and snobbiest of Park Avenue and those young women asking their parents for any early graduation gift, to the most elite video models, Instagram-famous celebrities, and your most favorite reality TV starlets, the BBL procedure has grown exponentially over the past few years, and become the most widely requested plastic surgery procedure in the industry today – especially in New York City. As the doctor many would consider to be the best Brazilian butt lift surgeon NYC has to offer, Dr. Sergey Voskin and his team at Goals Plastic Surgery have played an integral part in spreading awareness about the BBL procedure, and all that it entails, from safety warnings and pre-procedural notes, to educating the population on janky doctors and unregulated surgical centers that have caused a number of issues and even some fatalities. While they are clearly not just doing this as an act of philanthropy, having a business to run and support, this type of education is vital to the community, as the increased demand has led to a number specials and unheard of price discounts that have led many women to throw caution to the wind and take their chances. And while there have been a number of documented deaths as a result of the BBL surgery, the vast majority of patients simply come back in immense pain, in need of a reconstruction procedure that will essentially mean double the recovery time, double the pain, and double the cost! As the best Brazilian butt lift surgeon NYC surgical experts recommend, Dr. Voskin is a firm believer in things being too good to be true, and as one of the most experienced surgeons and best BBL doctor in the city, he tries to educate women on the dangers of plastic surgery, and why paying a few hundred more, or even a full thousand, is well worth it, especially when your life is at stake. The issue is that far too many women see the amazing results SOME women have, and get very antsy – so much so, the last thing they want to hear is about Goals Plastic Surgery having one of the longest waiting lists, and on top of that their reputable surgeons telling you why it would be safer if you gained or lost “x” amount of pounds before your procedure, or why you will recover better if you quit smoking a month before major plastic surgery. And all too often, visiting another doctor, who simply wants to see the cash in hand, ends right back at Goals anyway. Here are a few of the most common things women wish they knew (or listened to!) before their Lipo 360 and BBL procedure.
· Control Your Expectations Before You Face Your Reality
Yes, its true, Goals Plastic Surgery is known for having some of the best before and after images in the business. And as the best Brazilian butt lift surgeon NYC trusts, Dr. Voskin is roughly an artist with a liposuction canula – completely transforming his patients into their dream selves. However, regardless of how good he is, and no matter how many people call him the best BBL surgeon often, you will not look like Kim Kardashian or any of your favorite TV star. Whiles its certainly possible, each BBL surgery is different, just like every patient. The results of every individual patient depends on a variety of things like body shape, fat/body ratio, the quantity of liposuction that was performed and the quantity of fat that was not only transferred, but the amount that was actually accepted and absorbed by the body (check out the second fact below).
· Not All Your Fat Will Be “Accepted” or Absorbed By the Body
This may come as a huge shocker to most, but we guarantee that if you thought you had the best BBL doctor, who was even half as good as Dr. Voskin (well, he is the best BBL surgeon in the city, so…), he or she has most definitely explained this to you. The fact is that just because the fat is coming from your own body, it will not always be accepted and when rejected, it will essentially be flushed out like waste. In most cases this can be anywhere from a 15-40% loss in the fat that was injected into the buttocks. Which truly isn’t too bad for a Lipo360 and BBL procedure, women will have thinner hips and a midsection as a result of the liposuction, and with even, lets say HALF, the fat that was injected, the patient will have a very gorgeous butt to waist ratio. The problems arise when patients see their initial butt size (right after surgery) and it looks simply gigantic, mirroring the results of their favorite Kardashian sister, again, this is very unlikely. One method that Dr. Voskin, the best BBL surgeon in NYC, may recommend is a stem cell butt augmentation surgery. The stem cell butt augmentation surgery is essentially the same as the normal lipo BBL, however once the lipo is performed and the fat is harvested from the donor location, it doesn’t just go through the normal treatment process – they actually will remove blood from your body, spin it around in a centrifuge, and create a PRP (platelet rich plasma) substance. Using your own blood cells, PRP is a filtered version of your inner stem cells and growth factors. PRP solutions are known to help with the regeneration and faster healing of human tissue and overall, will help keep a higher percentage of the fat cells from being rejected and expelled as waste. For the most part, the stem cell butt augmentation surgery isn’t necessary, but if you don’t mind spending extra and you are someone who needs the extra size, shape and buttock volume.
· Pre-Op Weight Gain: Fact or Fiction?
This is where even the best BBL doctor in the city can’t seem to get a consensus, as he is a firm believer that often, women who are skinnier, need to gain weight before their lipo BBL. Many disagree, as they feel the human body generally has the same number of fat cells either way, they would simply just be shrunk down or skinnier, meaning that you might even be able to grab more fat cells to transfer. This might be true in some regard, however, when patients are on the skinnier side of the coin, firstly, the liposuction aspect of the fat transfer process is much harder, as the fat is far more rigid and not as malleable and easy to remove for the fat transfer, in the case where they were larger – plus the fat is simply more voluminous. In addition, Dr. Voskin and his team at Goals always recommend patients be within a certain BMI, not only for the amount of fat on their body to transfer, but for their overall health and wellness as someone who will be going through two relatively invasive plastic surgery procedures, (Liposuction & BBL) that are known to be dangerous when an individual is too skinny or is looking to have too much fat liposuction out for the fat transfer. Not to mention, the whole point of a Lipo BBL is to add more volume to the backside, and many women are looking to go quite big in that department. The fact is that, especially at a reputable practice like Goals, they will often ask their patients to put on weight before their surgery date, in fact, even pushing it back if they have yet to reach their goal BMI.
These are definitely three of the most common things that BBL patients wish they had paid more attention to during the pre-procedure part of things, there are definitely quite a few more, but lucky for you, this is only part one of this topic.
