How to Get the Most out of Your Butt Lift
Whether you’re looking for a gentle boost of volume along the lines of Jennifer Lopez, or a more dramatic look like Kim Kardashian, if you’re considering a butt augmentation, there are a few pointers to consider before the big day. With the growing number of butt lifts performed in the United States each year, one of the most frequently asked questions is how to get the most out of your specific procedure (NBC News). Here are some of the best ways you can maximize your results and get the curves you want.
1. Focus on Shape, Not Size
There are plenty of celebrities out there who flaunt a larger-than-life backside, but in truth, the vast majority of butt lifts are performed to give women a subtler enhancement, rather than a very dramatic, Hollywood look. When it comes to figuring out just how big to go, it’s oftentimes much more helpful to first consider the overall shape of your body and what kind of results might complement your contours, rather than alter them altogether. The most satisfactory butt augmentations highlight your natural curves and appear to be nicely balanced with the rest of your proportions.
2. Adopt Healthy Living Habits
Although your butt lift results can be very long-lasting, there are a few things you can do to make sure you maintain those same excellent results. Because a butt lift is actually performed using a fat transfer method, in which fat is taken from another area of your body such as your abdomen or thighs and then reinjected into your buttocks, significant weight fluctuations can impact your results. Thus, it’s important to adopt a healthy lifestyle both before and after your procedure to ensure that your butt augmentation remains long-lasting. (The American Society of Plastic Surgeons)
3. Have Realistic Expectations
It can be helpful to bring pictures to your consultation prior to your procedure, but remember that your individual results will very highly depend on your unique body structure and build. Working closely with your plastic surgeon to help you determine the most flattering size and shape for you is the best way to remain realistic about your results, which, in turn, can have a positive impact on your overall satisfaction with your butt augmentation.
In fact, multiple studies, including research from Uhr Universität and the University of Basel, have found that those women and men who have realistic expectations for their plastic surgery procedures are most likely to have high feelings of satisfaction about their results. Additionally, these same men and women reported experiencing improved self-esteem and body image. (Clinical Psychological Science)
4. Choose an Experienced Plastic Surgeon
The quality of your results really does depend on your plastic surgeon’s experience as well. When choosing the right professional with whom to work, be sure to check for things like board certification, experience performing butt augmentations, and his or her ability to communicate clearly and amicably with you. These qualifications can make all the difference when it comes to your comfort and satisfaction throughout the entire process.
Taking the Next Step
Keep these four tips in mind when beginning your journey towards achieving your desired look. They are a great starting point to help you get the best possible outcome from your butt augmentation.
