30-year-old female following her BBL redo.
If you do not consult an experienced surgeon for your BBL redo, you are putting yourself at risk.
Cosmetic surgery takes a meticulous eye and a careful hand to produce the best results. Finding the right cosmetic surgeon is one of the most important parts of your cosmetic surgery journey. Choosing the right surgeon can lead to postoperative complications, unpredictable outcomes, and undesirable results. Unfortunately, many patients often come to SurgiSculpt for revision surgeries because they are disappointed with their initial surgical results. A BBL, or Brazilian Butt Lift redo, is one of the most common revision surgeries. The challenge is that surgeons need to appreciate their patients’ goals and concerns.
A surgeon needs to understand the patient’s desires to translate that patient’s hopes and aesthetic goals into results that the patient can appreciate. For example, one of the most important parts of a successful BBL is a smooth transition from the buttock to the legs and from the buttock to the waist. The Tilde curve describes these smooth transition curves. Suppose you are looking for a BBL redo. In that case, it may be because your cosmetic surgeon failed to define the Tilde curve and sculpt a smooth transition from the buttock to the legs or from the buttock to the lower back, which is instrumental in creating dramatic yet natural BBL results.
A failed attempt at creating a smooth transition from the lower back to the buttock is usually observed by an abrupt junction between these two areas, best described as the shelving effects. Using High Definition VASER Liposuction, SurgiSculpt surgeons pride themselves on smooth sculpting and contouring these transitions to make your BBL results look noticeable yet natural. Another reason patients seek out SurgiSculpt for their BBL redo is poor skin quality following their initial procedure.
Frequently, poor surgical decisions can result in wrinkly skin, cellulite in the legs, or a ‘droopy’ or ‘long’ appearance of the buttock. Sometimes all three concerns are present! Luckily, there is a solution to fix a botched BBL procedure that has resulted in poor buttock aesthetics. If minimal to moderate skin redundancy is present in the lower back and flanks, then Renuvion J plasma may be administered as a minimally invasive technique to reduce undesirable skin laxity. When skin redundancy is moderate to severe, a lateral thigh and buttock tuck can be implemented as a more invasive maneuver to eliminate skin excess of the lower back and flanks and to re-tighten the skin of the buttocks to restore a youthful, vibrant look of the buttocks.
The most common reason patients come to SurgiSculpt for a BBL redo is that they have lost volume placed in the buttock during their first procedure. It is common for up to half of the buttock volume placed during the procedure to be lost after only six months! SurgiSculpt combines the surgeon’s experience and the advanced surgical technology of VASER to ensure the harvest of viable fat results in volume retention.
High Definition VASER liposuction utilizes an ultrasound-assisted liposuction technique. This technique ensures the fat cells being harvested are gently teased off each other during the harvest process so they are not harmed. This is in contrast to traditional liposuction techniques that forcefully rip the fat cells out of the body and thus result in damaging them. Any damaged fat cells cannot be identified during the harvest process and thus will be reinjected back into the body and subsequently recycled by the body with resultant volume lost. SurgiSculpt’s experienced surgeons, using VASER technology, guarantee the viability of the fat cells, ensuring you will not lose a significant amount of gained volume.
A huge misconception regarding BBLs and BBL redos is that thin patients must gain weight before their procedure. This recommendation is not appropriate! When you gain weight, the fat cells become larger rather than your fat cells becoming higher in number. Instead, high-definition VASER liposuction allows SurgiSculpt surgeons to harvest more fat cells and fat cells with much higher vitality. When thinking about a BBL redo, remember that finding an experienced surgeon who understands your specific goals is the most important thing you can do as a patient. Using the Buttock augmentation Assessment Tool developed by SurgiSculpt surgeons remains indispensable to ensure you receive the buttock shape and size of your dreams.
