Before and After BBL: My Booty Has Fluffed Out To Something Fierce

’ve never had surgery before and the doctor and was even surprised that I was interested in a bbl once he found out what I do for a living; think engineer, lawyer, doctor, account executive…basically, I ain’t stripping. But I’ve always wanted my ideal body. I’ve been blessed with the requisite funds, I don’t have any kids or a husband (damn, even a boyfriend) to think about so if I’m gonna be “selfish,” now is the time. I’m only 23, and I wanna enjoy my young years.
RealSelf community member SXWallex commenced her body sculpting quest in early 2013. This is her journey, in her own words.
My surgeon was surprised that I was interested in a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) once he found out what I do for a living; think engineer, lawyer, doctor, account executive ... But, I’ve always wanted this body shape. I’ve been blessed with the requisite funds, I'm 23 and don’t have kids or a husband to think about, so if I’m gonna be "selfish", now is the time.
I carry ALL of my fat in my upper body. It's pretty ridiculous; my legs are straight muscle from running track most of my life. I wanted a bigger butt, but I also wanted my upper body sculpted.
I considered the surgery for over two years. Anesthesia scared me most, so I began exhaustive research. It took me a while to be fully comfortable with my decision but some uncertainty is a good thing; it shows you understand the risks that accompany an invasive, elective procedure.
RealSelf introduced me to my doctor. Very few people knew about my surgery; so it was nice to have a place to freely discuss my hopes and concerns with fellow sisters. I stayed in a condo after my surgery with someone I met on RealSelf, who was also recovering from a BBL. And yes, we are very much still in contact!
I believe I chose a doctor who produced such natural looking results, that no one ever has accused of me of getting work done. Booty has fluffed out to something fierce and I love it. And, all of a sudden, I've started to get a ton of compliments -- all from women! I was walking out of class and I was wearing tight black leggings with a tight black top and the girl behind me says, "I'm sorry, but I have to say ... you have the most incredible body. Your waist is so small and your curves are perfect! You must work out a lot!"
I laughed, thanked her and said, "Yes, I do."
