Brazilian Butt Lift (aka BBL, Autologous Fat Transfer or Fat Grafting) and Buttock Implants, aka Buttock Prostheses, are nowadays the fastest growing cosmetic surgeries, but what is the reason for this astonishing surge?
In the last century, the paradigm of female beauty was voluptuous breasts, but during the last couple of decades, things definitely seem to have changed. A glance at social media, with its voluptuous buttocks influencers or current music videos, is enough to notice this phenomenon. It seems then that buttock augmentation procedures are here to stay.
BBL, however, is not trouble free; in fact, it is a risky surgery with a considerably high rate of complications and the results, although acceptable in the short term, in the medium and long term, are not up to expectations because fat undergoes a resorption process that in relatively short time causes dissatisfaction and frustration in the patient.
On the other hand, buttock implants are not exempt from problems either, since patients complain that the results are not natural, with indentations and steps that make the prostheses very noticeable; moreover, with time they tend to descend, creating unsightly effects.
But what about those women who do not have enough fat to be extracted and re-injected into their buttocks, who do not want the notorious and uncomfortable buttock implants or who, after having had a BBL with unsatisfactory results, do not have any more fat to donate to their buttocks?
Well, a solution exists for these cases, it is called non-surgical BBL or Buttock Bioplasty. The procedure was developed in Brazil more than 20 years ago and has evolved and perfected until today as a safe and lasting alternative to volumize, project and contour the gluteal area in a natural and risk-free way.
This procedure is performed with Linnea Safe brand biocompatible hydrogel approved by the Brazilian FDA. The product contains perfectly spherical and uniform biocompatible microparticles in suspension with a viscous gel whose function is twofold, on the one hand to transport the microparticles to the gluteal tissues and on the other to provide instant volume to the area. The microparticles have the property of stimulating the production of collagen, elastin and fibrin, essential components of the tissues that provide a framework that reinforces the gluteal tissues and at the same time bring volume to the area.
