What is a BBL
The Non-Surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) uses injectable hyaluronic fillers (HA) to restore the volume and lift the bum with instant results.
While the BBL has risen in popularity to become the most popular butt injection procedure, HA fillers have been used to augment bums as well. Hyaluronic acid injections offer a solution for patients who wish to create subtle changes in buttock contours without undergoing surgery.
A bum lift with HA typically refers to a cosmetic procedure called a “buttock augmentation” or “Brazilian butt lift” that involves using hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers to enhance the shape
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps provide volume and hydration to the skin. In a bum lift procedure, it is injected into specific areas of the buttocks to add volume, improve contour, and create a more lifted appearance.
The procedure involves the following steps:
- Consultation before procedure: You will meet with Patti, our qualified advanced aesthetics practitioner to discuss your goals and expectations. She will evaluate your buttocks, take measurements, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
- Anaesthesia: Depending on the extent of the procedure and the practitioner’s preference, local anaesthesia may be used to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
- HA injection: Your practitioner will carefully inject the hyaluronic acid filler into specific areas of the buttocks. They will use their expertise to ensure the desired shape and contour are achieved.
- Recovery: After the procedure, you will be given instructions on how to care for your buttocks during the healing process. You may experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses. It is important to avoid sitting or lying directly on your buttocks for a certain period, as instructed by your surgeon.
It’s essential to note that the results of a bum lift with HA are temporary, typically lasting around 2 – 3 years. Over time, the filler will be naturally absorbed by the body, and you may require additional treatments to maintain the desired appearance. It’s crucial to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner to ensure a safe and satisfactory outcome.
What is Hip Dip Correction?
Hip dip correction with HA typically refers to a cosmetic procedure that involves using hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers to enhance the appearance of the hip area and minimize the appearance of hip dips.
Hip dips, also known as violin hips or high hips, refer to the inward curve or depression that occurs between the hip bone and the upper thigh. Some individuals may feel self-conscious about the appearance of hip dips, as they can create an uneven or less curvaceous silhouette.
Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are commonly used in cosmetic procedures to add volume and contour specific areas of the body. During a hip dip correction procedure, a trained medical professional injects HA fillers into the depressed areas along the hips to create a smoother, more rounded contour. The filler helps to fill in the hollowed areas, making the transition between the hip bone and thigh appear more gradual.
The procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia, and the amount of filler used will depend on individual anatomy and desired results. The effects of HA fillers are temporary, usually lasting several months to a year, as the body gradually metabolises the filler material. Repeat treatments may be necessary to maintain the desired results.
It’s important to consult with a qualified medical professional who specialises in cosmetic procedures to discuss your goals, expectations, and any potential risks or side effects associated with hip dip correction using HA fillers.
Benefits of BBL &Hip Dip Correction?
Hip dip correction with HA fillers can offer several benefits for individuals seeking to enhance the appearance of their hip area. Some of the benefits include:
- Improved Contour: HA fillers can help create a smoother and more rounded contour along the hips, minimizing the appearance of hip dips. By adding volume to the depressed areas, the transition between the hip bone and thigh can appear more gradual and aesthetically pleasing.
- Enhanced Curves: Many people desire a curvier silhouette, and hip dip correction with HA can help achieve that. The fillers can add volume and create a more pronounced curve along the hips, resulting in a more feminine and hourglass-like figure.
- Non-Surgical Procedure: Hip dip correction with HA fillers is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure. It involves minimally invasive injections, typically performed under local anesthesia. This means there is no need for a lengthy recovery period or significant downtime compared to surgical alternatives.
- Immediate Results: One of the advantages of using HA fillers is that the results are often visible immediately after the procedure. Once the filler is injected, you can see the improvement in contour and volume right away, although there may be some initial swelling that subsides over time.
- Temporary and Reversible: HA fillers used for hip dip correction are temporary in nature. While the duration can vary depending on the individual and the type of filler used, most HA fillers last several months to a year. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the results or wish to make any adjustments, the filler can be dissolved using an enzyme called hyaluronidase, allowing for reversibility.
It’s important to note that the benefits and outcomes of hip dip correction with HA fillers can vary depending on individual anatomy, the skill of the medical professional performing the procedure, and other factors. It’s essential to consult with a qualified and experienced aesthetic practitioner to discuss your goals, expectations, and any potential risks or limitations associated with the procedure.
After undergoing a non-surgical bum lift using hyaluronic acid, it’s important to follow proper aftercare to ensure optimal results. Here are some general guidelines to consider:
Avoid sitting or lying directly on your treated buttocks: To prevent excessive pressure or distortion of the injected area, try to avoid sitting or lying directly on your buttocks for the first few days after the procedure. This will allow the hyaluronic acid to settle properly.
Use cold compresses: Applying cold compresses or ice packs to the treated area can help reduce swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Wrap the compress in a clean cloth and apply it gently for short intervals at a time.
Avoid strenuous exercise and physical activities: Refrain from engaging in strenuous exercise or activities that may put excessive strain on your buttocks for at least a week following the procedure. This will allow the hyaluronic acid to settle.
Wear loose and comfortable clothing: Opt for loose and breathable clothing to avoid unnecessary pressure or rubbing on the treated area. Tight clothing may interfere with the healing process and potentially affect the results. Please arrive wearing loose clothing.
Stay hydrated and maintain a healthy diet. Adequate hydration and a balanced diet can support your body’s natural healing process. Drink plenty of water and include nutritious foods rich in vitamins and antioxidants in your meals.
Avoid hot baths, saunas, and steam rooms. Heat can increase swelling and potentially affect the longevity of the results. Therefore, it’s advisable to avoid hot baths, saunas, steam rooms, and other activities that involve excessive heat exposure for a few days after the procedure.
Follow your skincare routine: Continue with your regular skincare routine, but avoid applying any harsh or abrasive products directly to the treated area. Be gentle during cleansing and moisturising to avoid unnecessary irritation.
