Booties are a Beauty Statement in South Florida. And awareness of safe yet effective treatment should be known to all.
Never has there been a time when looking great at the beach was so important. Between selfies, Instagram, and Tik-Tok, we all must be on our “A” game! And the good news is, even though there are “scary” stories about legacy butt augmentation treatments, the new way to enhance your derriere is both safe and effective. But before we get to that, let’s talk about why safe treatments are so important.
Booty enhancement traditionally has been accomplished by either implants, or by fat transfer. Butt implants have pretty much gone by the wayside due to rather dire complications arising at any time after implantation. And now, there may be a reason to forgo the fat transfer, also.
The FL Board of Medicine has now passed a statute that declares no surgeon can perform more than three liposuction-fat transfers in one day. The reason? They are citing surgeon fatigue, possibly resulting in the deaths of 10 women who received Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBLs) in the past three years in South Florida. The women died from fat embolisms, either to the lungs or the heart, resulting in death. The new decree states that fat transfer should be done under ultrasound guidance in order to avoid any larger vessels. Of course, the surgeons are fighting back.
As this report from The Multi-Society Task Force for Safety in Gluteal Fat Grafting explains:
“The unusually high mortality rate from this cosmetic procedure is estimated to be as high as 1:3000, greater than any other cosmetic surgery. The cause of mortality is uniformly fatal fat embolism due to fat entering the venous circulation associated with injury to the gluteal veins. In every patient who has died, at autopsy, fat was seen within the gluteal muscle.”
This highlights the importance of choosing experienced, trusted cosmetic surgeons for your procedure. It also explains why so many people are turning to less invasive options to achieve a similar effect. (More on that in a moment)
Thankfully, we have SCULPTRA! Sculptra is a superb (and the only) collagen stimulant that simply grows more of your own collagen in areas where it is placed. The beauty of this treatment is that it can be done in stages to achieve the desired result, but also the resulting tissue it firm and tight. You can lose your hip-dips, sagging banana roll, increase height, width, and firmness all with this same treatment. The injections are quick and nearly discomfort-free. Sculptra is simply a polymer of lactic acid, an acid your body is already familiar with, that stimulates the growth of collagen. The actual poly-l-lactic acid breaks down into carbon dioxide, glucose, and water. All completely natural!
Hip-Dips are those side indentations that are prominent in very thin people and people that work out a lot. Some like the look as it speaks to “being in shape”. Others prefer the more rounded “BBL” look. When people are aging, the natural fat in the derriere tends to descend, placing all the bulk of the butt at the bottom, the banana roll. The descended fat can be lifted nicely with Sculptra placed higher. The new collagen, being tightly wound, pulls up the rest of the backside, returning it to its earlier, perkier presence. For the trans-gender, it can also create hips where there weren’t any before.
Sculptra is safe and has an 18-year history of use in this country. Clearly, one of my favorite products!
