Surgical BBLs: Dramatic but risky
There are two versions of the surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedure which both promise dramatic results. Voluminous buttocks can be achieved through silicone implants, or by injecting the butt with fat harvested by liposuction from other parts of the body. Because the fat is usually suctioned from the belly, the results will yield a total-body transformation into a more hourglass shape — something not possible with the Sculptra Butt Lift or implants.
While achieving instantly visible augmentation, surgery poses risks not associated with non-surgical BBLs. Respiratory failure can occur with the administration of anesthesia. Furthermore, the silicone implant can be rejected by the body or leak to surrounding tissues. Fat transfers can remove litres of fat and fluid at a time, and the risks include bleeding, infection, shock, and death from embolism when injected fat accidentally enters the bloodstream.
There is also significant pain and downtime — something not experienced with non-surgical procedures.
Meet your newest obsession: The Sculptra BBL
At Juvly, we augment your shape through the non-surgical Sculptra BBL. This non-invasive procedure uses Sculptra (poly-L-lactic acid or PLLA), a biocompatible product that induces collagen growth. The generated collagen lifts the butt, fills in any dimples, smooths cellulite, and creates a fuller, more rounded shape.
Unlike fat transfers and implants, which can augment the buttock by several hundred millilitres (ml) of volume at a time, the Non-Surgical BBL augments by 100-200 ml from 5 vials of diluted Sculptra.
Results immediately post-treatment may be deceptive because the diluent is absorbed over the next few days, leaving the dispersed Sculptra molecules to do their job. The procedure is customizable, and more vials can be added depending on the aesthetic goal. Some clients opt for packages consisting of 10-20 vials. Ideally, the BBL is repeated 2-3 times for more pronounced results.
If you already have a generous behind, the effects won’t be as obvious — but if you are lean or had lost volume in your buttocks due to aging, excessive dieting or exercise, this procedure is perfect for you. The results are more subtle, with natural-looking enhancement of contours, pronounced lift, and protrusion of the butt.
