What To Know About Brazilian Butt Lifts

Let's face it: Good intentions aside, it's easier to hit the snooze than get out of bed and hit the pavement. So, whether it's figuring out how to sculpt your body or finally learning how to carve out "me" time, the folks at YouBeauty have us excited to get sweating and stay on track.

Evette, Sweetie, and NBH each had their own reasons for going under the knife. Here’s what they taught us:

Average-size women get BBLs.
“I wasn’t always self-concious about my butt. It happened as I got older. It started losing its shape. It used to be round and out there. It was still out there, but it started getting square. I would say it was normal-average size; it wasn’t outrageous. There was no projection on it, which was what I wanted.” — Evette

Curvy women get BBLs.

“I was self-conscious about my butt. I didn’t like the way my grandmother’s body looked when she was in her 60s after having so many children. I only had one kid and she has seven, but I knew I wanted my body back to the way it was before I had a child.” — NBH, 41

And, cheerleaders get BBLs.
“I was a cheerleader in high school. I always felt self-conscious of my butt in the locker room.” — Sweetie, 26

Do your research.
“I live in Arkansas and flew to Miami for my BBL. Miami has the best doctors at a lower price; I paid $4000. Afterwards, I stayed in a recovery house where they made sure I ate, felt comfortable, and just took care of me. The whole nine yards.” — Sweetie

Surgery doesn’t mean you don’t take care of yourself.
“My tip is to definitely try to lose as much weight as you want to lose. [The doctor] doesn’t always recommend it, because he takes the fat from where you don’t want it and injects it to where you do. I didn’t need those injections because I already had a large ass. But, wear a compression garment beforehand and really take care of yourself. I think my results came out good because I took care of myself beforehand and excellent care of myself as I was healing. [Eat] right and [follow] their orders; you’re not supposed to have any form of alcohol. I eat right; I juice.” — NBH
