Without wasting any more time, let's get right into it.
Achieving a Larger Behind
These days, everyone's obsessed with getting a bigger, rounder, and more perfect butt.
Who doesn't want to have incredible hips and curves like Kim Kardashian or Beyoncé?
How do these ladies achieve their voluptuous figures?
If you're all about the big booty craze, you've probably spent hours at the gym doing squats and lunges trying to enlarge your behind to no avail. Why does it seem impossible for you to achieve the perfect butt? Most likely because many of the famous celebrities that seem to have the ideal behinds don't spend all day working out. Instead, they take a visit to a cosmetic doctor's office. It's no secret that the Brazilian butt lift procedure (BBL) has been on the rise in popularity for some time. In fact, in 2018 alone, there were more than 24,000 BBL procedures performed. Is a BBL what you need to achieve your perfect bootie? Let's take a closer look at what the procedure entails.
What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A BBL is also known as an SSBA or safe subcutaneous buttock augmentation which more accurately describes the procedure. In fact, a BBL is not one procedure but two: augmentation and liposuction.
You most likely are aware of what liposuction is. It involves the removal of fat from certain parts of the body with a suction-powered tube. But if you want a bigger but, you don't want to have any fat removed, right?
Actually, half of what makes a BBL procedure is the removal of fat from parts of your body like your stomach and thighs. The other half of the procedure is putting that fat back into your body, specifically into your behind to give it a more voluminous look. But is it really that simple?
The BBL Procedure
During the BBL procedure, a general anesthetic works to render you unconscious. Once you are unconscious, the liposuction will begin.
Upon removing the undesired fat, it is purified. This lowers the risk of serious
complications occurring when the fat transfers back into your body. After the purification step, the fat is then prepared for injection.
At this point, several incisions, usually around 4 to 5, are made in the buttocks. This allows for several easy-to-access injection sites.
After the fat transfer is complete, the incisions on the buttocks are stitched up. A
compression wrap will be used on the area in order to make sure the surgical area heals properly and does not bleed excessively.
After a few weeks of healing, you will see appealing curves and fullness to your behind. No more sagging or small bootie to be worried about! So, the BBL procedure sounds like the way to go, doesn't it?
Not so fast! There are some important complications and side effects to consider before getting a BBL.
The BBL Complications and Side Effects
While it's true that a Brazilian butt lift is significantly safer than other butt enlarging procedures such as silicone implants, that does not mean that a BBL is 100% safe.
Since a BBL is considered an invasive surgery, as with any surgery, complications can occur.
One of the most serious complications of a BBL is when fat is incorrectly injected into the body. This occurs when your doctor fails to inject the fat into the proper
subcutaneous layer where other fat resides. Instead, the fat is injected into a blood vessel.
This improper injection can cause a fat embolism, which is when fat travels through the blood until it reaches the lungs where it can cause a fatal cardiac event. This is one of the most common causes of death when it comes to BBL. Currently, the rate of death for Brazilian butt lifts is 1 out of 3,000 people.
This complication usually occurs because of an inexperienced or unprofessional doctor. However, there are complications that can occur regardless of a doctor's expertise. For example, since a BBL is a surgery that involves incisions, there is always a chance that an infection can occur. If the infection is caught early, your doctor will give you antibiotics and you should be fine. However, if you do not realize you have an infection or ignore it, there could be serious life-threatening consequences.
Let's check out the other option for bootie enlargement: Emsculpt.
What Is Em sculpt?
If you're worried about going under the knife with a Brazilian butt lift, then Emsculpt might be your ideal alternative. Ems sculpt does not involve surgery. Instead, it uses advanced technology to sculpt your body so you can achieve your dream body. So, if Emsculpt uses technology instead of surgery, how does it work? The trick to Emsculpt is that it uses high-intensity electromagnetic energy to target certain parts of your muscles and contract them in ways you can't naturally. These contractions are known as supramaximal contractions.
Through these supramaximal contractions, your muscles are being exercised in ways that would be impossible at the gym or during any other kind of physical activity. Not only do these contractions firm your muscles, but they also burn fat at the same time. This is because the muscles are being contracted to 100% capacity for several seconds at a time, which no human can do naturally.
What Are the Benefits of Emsculpt?
The primary benefit of Emsculpt is that you can get a butt lift without surgery. Instead of
using fat to lift your but, you can let Emsculpt work out your butt muscles to a
voluptuous extent. Not only will you have a shapely behind with Emsculpt, but a strong one too!
Each Emsculpt session lasts around 30 minutes, which is a piece of cake compared to the hours it takes to complete a BBL. This is not to mention that in these 30 minutes, your butt is getting the equivalent workout of 20,000 squats.
While some BBL procedures look good, some look a little unnatural. With Emsculpt, you're not having fat moved around and stuffed into other areas of your body. Emsculpt can give you a full, natural-looking butt while being totally non-surgical.
A huge benefit to Emsculpt is that there is no downtime. With a BBL, you are not
allowed to sit for several weeks, and after those several weeks, you're allowed to sit down only on a donut cushion. There is a risk of infection and fat embolism and sometimes, the fat transfer doesn't even give you the results you wanted.
With Emsculpt, you don't need to worry about sitting on donut cushions or not sitting at all. You don't need to take time off from work to heal and you don't need to recover from anesthesia either.
It's also much cheaper than a BBL too! Emsculpt is all about muscle building and
sculpting your body.
Are There Side Effects to Emsculpt?
So far, Emsculpt sounds a bit too good to be true, so there must be serious side effects, right?
Not at all! Some may experience soreness after an Emsculpt treatment, but your
average post-gym soreness is likely worse. There is no pain involved and you start to see results immediately.
Other than soreness, redness, and slight bruising in the treated area, Emsculpt has no serious side effects. It is also FDA-approved! Out of all the plastic surgery alternatives for a butt lift, Emsculpt is looking pretty good.
Emsculpt Vs. Brazilian Butt Lift
Now that you know the difference between Emsculpt and a Brazilian butt lift, you can choose the right procedure for you. A BBL can be costly and need months of recovery time, not to mention serious and even life-threatening complications.
Emsculpt is one of the best no-surgery makeovers available. With no downtime, no serious side effects, and no pain, you can achieve your dream body.
