Before Your Brazilian Butt Lift
In recent years, with what seems to be an exponential boom in plastic surgery, more women than ever before are looking towards body contouring and enhancement procedures to achieve their dream bodies. While all-time favorites like breast implant surgery are always in heavy demand, the most popular procedure in the last few years by far, has been the Lipo360 and BBL Often known simply as the Brazilian butt lift or BBL, this popular option is a combination procedure that is designed to help women increase the size, shape and overall appearance of their butt, while simultaneously helping them to trim down in the most common of problem areas – the stomach and midsection. Having performed countless Lipo360 and BBL procedures, Dr. Sergey Voskin of Goals Plastic Surgery, is considered to be the best BBL surgeon in New York City. With so many years of experience as a BBL specialist, Dr. Voskinis able to provide women with some of the best and most natural results across the city. One of the most important things to understand about the Lipo360 and BBL is that while it is the most common form of the procedure, the lipo360 aspect means that patients are removing from the midsection and flanks in order to inject it into the patient’s body – helping them to not only add volume to their backside, but to also contour their midsection are. However, for some patients who might not have enough fat along their midsection area, they might want to remove some fat from other areas of the body and use that as the donor region – this might include the arms, thighs, hips, other parts of the midsection and more. Therefore, despite still being a two-part procedure, this variation is simply known as the BBL rather than the Lipo360 and BBL. In addition to a fact like this, according to Dr. V, the best BBL surgeon in New York City, another big issue amongst BBL patients is that they don’t often educate themselves as much as they should before surgery, leaving them either unhappy with certain results, or unaware of certain side effects or aftercare issues. To help first time patients educate themselves on the Brazilian butt lift procedure, here are some important facts to know before surgery.
· Not Just About Volume
One of the most interesting aspects of the BBL procedure is that it is not just a procedure used to help patients add volume to their backsides, but it helps patients to improve their overall shape and texture of their backsides as well. As the best BBL surgeon in New York City, Dr. Voskin is highly strategic when injecting fat into the patient’s backside – ensuring that certain areas of the buttocks receive more fat than others. By doing this, he is able to create better ratios, and an overall improved harmony between the hips, thighs and buttocks. This not only ensures patients achieve a more natural look, but that it is the most aesthetically pleasing as well.
· The Best Candidates for a BBL
As a BBL specialist, Dr. Voskin is able to perform the BBL on patients with all different body types – and most importantly, ensure that those patients not only achieve aesthetically pleasing results, but that the procedure is performed safely, and limits the possibility of any side effects of risks. However, despite the procedure being effective on different body types, there are some important stipulations that must be followed – as patients need to have a certain amount of fat in order to be used as the donor fatty tissue, while also being within a healthy weight and BMI (body mass index – weight to height ratio) range – and while some patients may need to gain or lose fat in order to qualify for the procedure, most women are naturally good candidates as nearly all women store a certain amount of adipose tissues in their abdomen, hips, thighs, back, and other areas.
· Scarring & Side Effects
One important, yet often overlooked aspect of the Brazilian butt lift is the fact that following the BBL or any other surgical procedure, women will be left with some minor scarring, as well as other side effects like bruising, redness, swelling and more. As a top BBL specialist, Dr. Voskin will often recommend patients use certain topical creams and compounds to ensure that any visible scarring will disappear soon after – lasting anywhere from a few months up until a full year in some cases.
· Outpatient Procedure
Unlike certain other surgical procedures, the BBL is considered to be an outpatient procedure, meaning that patients can return home on the same day as their procedure. Despite this however, it is important that patients prepare themselves with someone to help them around the house during aftercare period, as well as to arrange someone to take them home after the procedure, as they will be in far too much pain and discomfort to drive themselves or use public transportation.
