If you are interested in body contouring of your rear end and are wondering if this procedure is right for you, then this article will summarize everything about the Vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift. Here are eight things you need to know about Vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift.
Things You Should Know
1. What is Vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift?
First, we will discuss what vacuum therapy is. Vacuum therapy is a non-invasive massaging procedure that utilizes a mechanical device with suction cups designed to lift the skin. Though originally invented in the 1970s to treat burn scars, it has evolved to have applications in body contouring.
Vacuum therapy, also referred to as vacuotherapy and depressomassage, can be used to tone and tighten the buttocks. Commonly known as the Vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift, it differs from the traditional Brazilian butt lift that involves surgically transferring fat to the buttocks to create more fullness.
2. Does it lift and sculpt the buttocks?
Vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift involves using suction cups strategically placed on the buttocks to create a vacuum that corrects and tones the gluteal muscles and skin. The procedure is gentle and does not invade the skin, leaving no traumatic effect.
The procedure tone and tightens the buttocks through the following:
- Increasing lymphatic flow that increases the elimination of water and toxins from the region.
- Promoting skin exfoliation leads to a more toned and smoother appearance.
- Reducing muscle tension in the glutes, making them firmer.
- Reducing the appearance of cellulite on the skin by promoting blood flow in the region.
- Promoting growth in the middle layers of the skin, replacing the old skin on the surface.
3. How long does it take to see results?
To view the procedure results, individuals must have around four sessions, one within 1-2 weeks. During the first months of the procedure, individuals may be required to attend sessions consecutively for a few weeks to show any results. However, after that initial period, individuals can have fewer monthly sessions for maintenance.
4. How long do results last?
The Vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift results are not permanent, with the skin reverting to its previous state if the results are not well maintained. Typically, results are expected to last about one year, with individuals requiring subsequent sessions to maintain the results after that.
Individuals unable to maintain the procedure results may be required to regularly have Vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift sessions at least every month. Additionally, individuals may consult their doctor to see if they are viable for more invasive surgical procedures.
5. Is vacuum therapy safe?
The procedure is non-invasive, with no surgical cutting of the skin tissue required. During the application and removal of the suction cups, patients may feel a slight pinching that lasts only a few seconds. Additionally, mild pain, tightness, and mild swelling after the procedure may occur however the side effects typically last a few minutes only.
6. What is the aftercare following a Vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift?
After a treatment session, patients need to take rest to allow the body to recover. Drinking lots of water to promote lymphatic drainage and toxins removal is advised. Patients should avoid caffeine, alcohol, sugar, and dairy for six hours after the surgery as they interfere with the results.
Additionally, patients should avoid extreme temperatures, such as extreme heat or cold, as the region may feel slightly tender. Some experts also advise avoiding intense workout routines immediately after. Intense temperatures or workouts may bruise sensitive skin.
7. What are the benefits of a vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift against surgery, injection, or exercise?
Patients can use alternative surgical treatments such as liposuction, butt implants, traditional Brazilian butt lift, and Cellfina in place of the vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift. However, a vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift is the only non-invasive treatment.
Traditional Brazilian butt lift involves surgically transferring fat tissue from other regions to the buttocks, while butt implants involve inserting silicone implants to make the buttocks appear fuller and sculpted. Lastly, liposuction is the least invasive of the alternative treatments and involves surgically removing excess fat from the buttocks region.
Butt lift surgeries have become increasingly popular in recent years. Vacuum Brazilian Butt Lift provides a non-invasive treatment option for individuals interested in toning and sculpting their buttocks. The procedure is relatively fast, with sessions lasting an hour and no recovery period required after.
