In recent times, women have been more inclined to follow procedures that improve their bodies to fit certain societal standards.
Exercise was the go-to process to get a healthy and well-toned body for most women. The most popular kind of exercise that women used to tone their bodies is squats, squats have been known to improve the appearance of the lower body. Exercising of course is a tough procedure that needs a lot of consistency and effort to achieve results. With the invention of BBL surgery most women no longer feel the need to exercise but instead go in for this surgery, it's a faster procedure that offers instant improvement, unlike squats. Before the BBL though there was the time of silicone butt implants.
What is a Brazilian butt lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that involves the transfer of fat to create a fuller backside. This procedure is usually carried out by a certified surgeon who will place you on local anaesthesia.
The first process is liposuction, which is to remove fat from other areas in the body, such as the stomach and thighs. Liposuction is done with a tube to remove fat from the body.
The fat removed is then purified and prepared for injection into the buttocks.
The process is finished by injecting the purified fat into specific areas to create a fuller, rounder look.
All openings are stitched up to prevent bleeding.
Benefits of Brazilian
Unlike the silicone buttocks implants, a Brazilian butt lift provides better-looking results and improves the roundness of the backside. It reduces the infection compared to silicone buttocks implants.
Risks of BBL
Lumps in suctioned or injected parts of the body.
Fat embolism in the heart or lungs can lead to the death of the patient.
Now to the main issue, why is everyone getting a bbl surgery? Despite the high risks and costs of this surgery many women are still getting this surgery and it stems from body dysmorphia. Body dysmorphia is a mental health condition where a person spends time worrying about the flaws in their appearance that goes unnoticed by other people. Social media also plays an important role in this "perfect body" wave and so the pressure to fit into the narrative is encouraged. At different times, society has had different beauty standards. At some point, it was clear skin and then the freckle wave. Now it's the perfect figure 8 shape.
