3 MORE Things You Wish You Knew Before Your Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
As clearly being the most popular plastic surgery procedure across New York City, and most likely the country, the lipo and BBL procedure known as the Brazilian butt lift has become what feels like an everyday topic of discussion. From women who run online forums and Instagram pages, spending their days posting up the latest in buttock augmentation surgery, or the newest Brazilian butt lift massage technique, to the best plastic surgeon spending the better part of his next 3 months, contouring the butts of some of Instagram’s most highly coveted influencers, and the drop dead gorgeous creations that most of them are sporting on camera, only a matter of weeks off of Dr. Voskin’s very own operating table. While many, even most of us, below the age of 40 or 50, have become well-versed in lipo buttock lift culture, simply from having social media and watching moments of TV when the “IRL” (in real life) world got a little too boring or Instagram decided to take a few extra minutes to load your timeline. The fact is that once you get past the gorgeous bodies on Instagram, and the natural looking, unnatural-ness of them all, society today is already distracted by the next thing, or the next person to try and get your attention, simply for the sake of getting your attention. And this level of distraction is often why many women (and some men!) can’t seem to be bothered to remember what they were told during their pre-procedure period, the same period where you laid out each and every vital thing to know, and they couldn’t be bothered to pay attention, as some would rather dream about that big booty, and compare toothpastes. The whole not knowing what to expect thing is much worse, especially if you’re one of the dozens of patients getting their Lipo and BBL procedure done this week. The main problem is that rather listen to you and other coordinators about what a buttock augmentation surgery entails, or other important questions like, how much does a BBL surgery cost with financing, or even make a comment about how you see people who just had their lipo buttock lift booking a fat transfer massage, should you be doing the same? While it might be frustrating the coordinators, who end up being asked some of the most vital questions about her buttock augmentation surgery, 3 days after the procedure has already been done. The fact is that if you remember part 1 from last time of the 3 things you wish you knew before your BBL surgery, you can still hear the surprised groans from the mouths of many. To better educate our patients, and to help make sure they don’t repeat the mistakes of those patients of years past – here are three MORE things you wish you knew before your Brazilian Butt Lift surgery as well.
· Post-Op is Rough, Especially the Post-Op Digestive Issues
Whether it’s something you heard, something your coordinator and the best plastic surgeon in the city might have simply decided to skip, or even just something you brushed off – because ANYTHING’s worth your new booty, right? You will quickly come to learn that waking up from surgery, especially something like a lipo buttock lift, can be one of the most unnerving feelings you’ve ever felt, especially when it comes to your inner organs and your body as a whole. The liposuction aspect of a fat transfer to buttocks procedure will cause your organs to still feel very numb, as you will be given anesthesia to mitigate any pain or discomfort. One of the most common issues patients have due to the lipo and BBL procedure, is that they must take prescription pain medication in order to mitigate the pain during your recovery period, as well as the leftover feeling from the anesthesia. This, as all pain medication is known to attack the digestive system, by slowing it down and meaning that patients are unable to go number two, for if not a few hours, then a few days! Known to offer the best Brazilian butt lift surgery, at Goals Plastic Surgery, there have been some patients who have not been able to use the bathroom in 5 days following their surgery! While this isn’t ideal, they are able to mitigate any possible issues.
· No Sitting Down!
By far one of the least discussed, worst issues amongst patients who have just had their Brazilian fat transfer done, might seem a bit obvious, but it is quite interesting when patients come to the realization for the first time. generally, recovery from the Brazilian fat transfer procedure is fairly well structured at this point, and the team at Goals knows how to handle it. However, for most patients, the first three days are the worst and the most difficult to bare, as there is often a constant feeling of discomfort, swelling and overall soreness – along multiple places, including the body and the buttocks. Until your first Brazilian Butt lift massage, there is little to no chance for you to be sitting on your butt as the area has not healed and the fat is still tender, as well as the areas in which the injections performed. Your butt and tights are so tense that you feel really limited. The fact is once you get your first BBL massage, you will likely be able to begin to try laying on your backside for a short time period – however, in the beginning you will likely have to simply lay on your stomach for the time being. And in fact, it might help you to use a BBL pillow as well as these types of accessories are often included in the BBL surgery cost.
· Swelling Issues
Even those individuals who have had the best Brazilian butt lift surgery, it is nearly impossible to stave off the following side effects that are common to such a procedure, redness, soreness, and swelling overall are quite common amongst those individuals who have had a fat transfer to buttocks, as the main issue that leads to swelling issues is the actual liposuction part. In fact, those individuals who get liposuction done on its own, will often have large swelling issues, and experience bruising along the treatment area. While such an issue is common, especially in most facets of plastic surgery that are far less involved, and can leave you a lot more swollen in an area like the face – and when compared to that of a facelift plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift, the BBL surgery cost was almost the same, however, as 2019 and 2020 have been quite the popular years for those women looking for a fat transfer to buttocks surgery, and practices like Goals have been heavily discounting procedures, prices have dropped upwards of $3000 or more in certain scenarios. This is interesting as Goals is not only known for offering the best Brazilian butt lift surgery, as well as some of the fairest and most agreeable pricing. In addition, patients will often need to visit their doctor for follow-ups and additional appointments, for instance, after the Brazilian fat transfer you will likely need to get the Brazilian butt lift massage done, during the following weeks, as this will ensure that your buttocks accept more of the injected fat cells, and in addition, your butt looks larger, more voluminous and even more soft and natural, especially during the time of the next BBL massage appointments.
· PRP Treatment
Recently, at Goals Plastic Surgery, a young woman had undergone a stem cell BBL, the procedure is essentially the same as the conventional BBL procedure, however, it makes use of the PRP solution, made from my very own blood work as a preparation agent for the donor fat is liposuction away from me. When I first came to Goals, I never had any intentions of having the stem cell BBL performed, however, during the initial consultation in which Dr. Voskin, explained that it was very likely, considering my most recent year of weight loss around my midsection specifically, left me with a far lower body fat % and lower BMI. Therefore, while I looked better than I have in my life, Dr. Voskin warned that there may not be an adequate amount of fat present, to provide our initial expectations of buttock size. In fact, Dr. Voskin believed that by the time it was ready for my first fat transfer massage, much of the fat that had actually been transferred would not be accepted by the body, and therefore, as the extra fatty tissue is expelled from the body as waste material. As a result with the addition of the stem cell bbl, and an additional BBL massage, we were able to ensure that the vast majority of the fat that had been injected into the buttocks remained.
