BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) No junk in my trunk :(
Posted Mon Apr 23, 2012 02:21 AM
I would say that I'm a fairly confident woman who for the most part has always been comfortable in my own skin...but as a female well our bodies have been through hell and back ever since Eve ate that damn apple...between puberty, pregnancy, child-birth, stress, weight gain/weight loss, and menopause our bodies really could be classified as a temple...pregnancy and breast feeding had already taken a toll on my top half when I made the decision to go through with a breast lift in 06'...I was beyond happy and still am with my results...I recently lost about 20 lbs. and have never felt more sexy...one area though that has ALWAYS made me a lil self concious is my booty...I have always had curves and even with my recent weight loss my bust, small waist, wide hips, and thick thighs still give me that hour glass figure that I am so thankful for...but the backside has almost given my front side a run for its money when it comes to flatness...working out, healthy eating and even a girls best-friend aka SPANX can't even bring my derriere to life...I've done a little research on the Brazilian Butt Lift and WOW...the procedure seems fairly simple but price is steep, not that I would chose a surgeon based on his fee of services...like I said I am doing my research...doctor history & background, doctor & surgeon center reviews, techniques (butt augmentation or buttocks implant), client testimonies, recover time, results, after care etc...
I would love some feedback...anyone had or know anyone who has had this procedure done?...any alternatives that worked for you?...doctor recommendations? don't hold back...I want the good, the bad and the ugly...any surgery has potential for complications so an elected unnecessary surgical procedure...damn right I'm doing my leg work, I wanna hear all opinions that way after my decision has been made if I still opt for surgery I'll feel more comfortable knowing that my decision was a well thought out...

I think you should consider a couple of things before going under this type of surgery... Try doing lunges and squats... The more the better. Nothing better than a little resistence training to increase the roundness of your butt. It will probably not increase size, but that's alright. My butt is not even big, but then I'm a small woman, so proportions are always important. I think what's more important is its shape.
Also, the Brazilian butt is called Brazilian for a reason after all... Here's one of the samba queens working her butt out... Literally!
And this is how she looks when she's dancing... I think she was born with the body to do just that though.

and asymmetry, where the there variance of fat cell death (typically 30%) differs in both location and degree in both cheeks...creating two different lookin' (although individually they might both still look good) cheeks.
One article also states that 5%-10% experience fluid build up in underneath the skin.
But comparatively speaking, it seems to be one of the less dangerous augmentations out there. At $16k-$20k, I'd better be looking like Beyonce after the surgery. Just sayin'.

These can be modified by putting your back on the floor or elevating your feet a little. They can also be done with just body weight with pretty good effect.
Not that you shouldn't still be doing squats and lunges.

It seems like muscle shape can actually change slightly from person to person, usually having to do with the muscle tie-ins. No one can change the shape of their muscle which is why it's funny when people try to focus on inner, outer, upper, middle, and lower chest. There are only two muscles there, and you make them larger and smaller - and that's it.
Same thing with glutes. They can be larger or smaller.

Anyway, I've noticed that I carry a good deal of fat on my butt, and after having taken resistence training in these past few years, I've found that, yes my butt muscles are a little more prominent, but that overall, my butt has gotten smaller because I've lost fat in the area. I think doing butt exercises helps achieve a perkier butt and a nicer shape, but I wouldn't say the end result is going to be bigger given the muscle vs. fat tradeoff.
I still wouldn't even look at a butt lift as a possibility. If you work your butt out, you should be able to see results in the matter of 3 to 6 months. If you make the math, you'll see that it's a lot cheaper to buy a gym membership, and I'd say a lot more healthier as well given the added benefits.
