ADD VOLUME AND IMPROVE THE SHAPE OF YOUR BUTT IN WESTFIELD, NJ
The coveted hourglass body shape, which consists of a small waist balanced by a fuller bust and curvier hips, is something most of us have seen in models and on magazine covers—but achieving that figure isn’t easy, even if you go to the gym. A Brazilian butt lift (commonly referred to by the acronym BBL) by NJ’s Dr. Carlos Burnett at Burnett Plastic Surgery is a fat transfer procedure that involves grafting some of the patient’s own excess fat cells to the buttocks. Getting a BBL improves the look of your butt while also reducing excess fat from other areas of the body for a slimmer, more refined silhouette.
WHAT CAUSES FLAT BUTTOCKS?
There are several factors that can contribute to a flat butt, including aging, sedentary jobs, diet, and genetics. Some people are simply built that way, while for others, flat buttocks could be caused by weakened buttock muscles from being less active.
It’s common for the butt to lose volume and shape as you age and fat diminishes in this area. A BBL is a form of cosmetic surgery that can help you add some shape and volume to the buttocks. Dr. Carlos Burnett provides lipo360 and a BBL for body contouring to sculpt the waist while also improving the roundness of the butt. Additionally, a BBL improves shapelessness and sagging that are associated with aging. BBL before and after photos are an ideal way to get an idea of the possibilities.
WHAT IS A BBL AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
For those who want to achieve an hourglass figure, a BBL could be the perfect solution. During the procedure, liposuction is used to remove fat from other body areas. This fat is purified and processed, then injected into the buttocks for a rounder and fuller appearance. It not only makes the butt bigger but also makes the flanks, stomach, and other areas smaller at the same time. This procedure can correct figure imbalances so clothing fits you more comfortably.
The placement of the fat in this surgery is very customizable, since fat tissue can be introduced in the butt area to improve volume and projection while also sculpting more defined body contours. Another benefit of BBL surgery is that the fat that’s transferred has a low risk of rejection because there are no foreign materials implanted. While it can create a smoother, more shapely buttocks, this is not designed as a treatment for cellulite.
A Brazilian butt lift provides longer lasting results compared to exercise on its own and is known for its natural-looking results. BBL for plus size patients usually is not recommended as to be considered ideal candidates, patients will need to be close to their ideal weight.
WHY IS IT CALLED A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT?
This form of cosmetic surgery originated in Brazil and Brazilian plastic surgeon Ivo Pitanguy is widely credited as its creator, which is how it got its name.
WHAT IS BBL FOR MEN?
Some men want to give their butt a stronger, more sculpted appearance. Achieving more angular, square, and defined buttocks is possible for men with BBL surgery.
OPTIONS ASIDE FROM BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT (BBL) FOR BODY CONTOURING
A BBL is one way of enhancing your body contours, but there are also forms of cosmetic surgery available to improve other areas of the body. These include breast surgeries such as breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction, along with tummy tuck surgery to sculpt a slimmer, firmer abdominal area, and liposuction to reduce deposits of resistant fat on specific areas.
One last note: BBL is also the shortened form of the name of a different cosmetic option: BroadBand light. These treatments are used to address superficial skin imperfections and rejuvenate the face.
Whether you are seeking one or the other—the surgery or the light-based treatment—be sure to use the full name of your treatment of choice when you reach out in order to be sure you start your conversation to discuss results, BBL price, and more on the same page as your provider!
