Beleza Medspa in Killeen Texas utilizes CoolSculpting to help Army soldiers to meet body fat standards. This is a novel use of this technology which is intended for cosmetic concerns. KILLEEN, TEXAS (PRWEB) MAY 27, 2016 Beleza Medspa has initiated a new program to assist active duty soldiers with satisfying Army body fat composition regulations. This is the first time that Coolsculpting is being used for for more than just cosmetic purposes. Soldiers are normally screened at least every six months to ensure they meet the prescribed body-fat standard, measured by the circumference-based tape method. The tape-test is used when soldiers exceed weight standards. The tape-test measures the neck and waist in males to determine a body fat percentage. “The tape test is of great concern for many soldiers as it can affect their careers including promotions and retention” states Beleza Medspa, Austin TX. “Army weight standards have been out of date for many years and otherwise healthy, fit soldiers are being hurt by these standards” he adds. “Coolsculpting offers a way to reduce the size of fatty areas in a few months that can lead to positive outcomes on the tape test”, “as a former active duty soldier I know the anxiety that these tape tests can cause” Beleza Medspa states. Coolsculpting is a non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The procedure requires no anesthesia, needles or downtime. During the painless one-hour procedure, patients can watch TV, listen to music or check email. At the conclusion of the procedure, the patient is free to resume normal activities. “Coolsculpting is the perfect, safe and effective FDA approved procedure to help these soldiers with their careers, not just for cosmetic reasons”, Beleza Medspa adds. “It can treat abdomens and love handles to take inches off waists without affecting their readiness” he states, “The goal is to assist healthy soldiers with meeting outdated and inaccurate standards”. Beleza Medspa Killeen also offers DualSculpting, which allows twice the amount of Coolsculpting to be performed in half the time. Beleza will also help to reduce the coolsculpting cost by offering discounts to active duty soldiers. Beleza Medspa offers a full suite of weight control programs like the Medical Weight Loss Diet as well as body sculpting with Smartlipo Liposuction. Beleza Medspa was founded in 2007 and has offices in Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park and Killeen Texas. Beleza Medspa is one of the largest providers of Botox, Juvederm and Smartlipo Laser liposuction in Texas and the U.S. Beleza Medspa’s office in Killeen Texas is located minutes from Fort Hood front gate, the largest U.S. Army base in the United States.…

Need to Lose Double Chin? The age of selfies is here and may of us are seeing an unsightly second chin!  How can one get rid of double chin?  How can you lose double chin? What are Double Chin Causes? Double chins can occur for many reasons including being overweight, loose skin with aging and genetics. Whatever the cause, double chins are unsightly and can make you look older and tired.  The good thing is that there are now many possible double chin treatments to lose double chins. Get Rid Double Chin Exercises? There are some easy to do double chin exercises to tighten the chin and neck muscles.  They are designed to tone the muscles of the face, jaw, chin and neck. They include the chin lift, neck roll, jaw release and platysma exercise.  They may help or they may not but they are free! Get Rid Double Chin Kybella? Introduced in 2015, Kybella consists of s series of small injections into the chin and neck area.  This FDA approved, non-surgical treatment is easily administered in the office.  Kybella consists of deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the body and aids in the digestion of fats. When injected into the fat cells of a double chin, the Kybella causes the fat cells to dissolve. It usually takes 12-20 painless injections per visit. Results can be seen in 4-6 weeks and 2-6 treatment sessions spaced one month apart may be required to see optimal results.  Swelling and redness is a common side effect of Kybella. Get Rid CoolMini Coolsculpting Chin? Another new entrant in the double chin treatment market is CoolMini.  CoolMini is a specialized applicator of the non-invasive fat reduction procedure, Coolsculpting.  The CoolMini applicator grabs the fat under the chin and freezes it for one hour in a controlled fashion.  Over the next several months, up to 25% of the fat cells will die.  83% of patients were satisfied with their results after 1-2 treatments. Kybella Vs Coolsculpting Chin? These 2 non-surgical FDA approved procedures both offer satisfaction rates in the 80% range.  They both offer simple, in-office treatments with little pain, risk or downtime.  Kybella does appear to produce redness, swelling and soreness in some patients after the injections. CoolMini has a lower incidence of post procedure side effects.  So when it comes down to deciding about Kybella vs Coolmini, you have to look at several factors.  Do you just not like needles?  What happens if you have prolonged swelling?  How many times do you have to repeat the procedure and how much does each cost?  The great thing is that both work and you will see results no matter which you choose. Get Rid Double Chin Lipo? Kybella and CoolMini can do a great job reducing fat under the chin.  However, they require several treatment sessions and cannot tighten loose skin.  Smartlipo of the chin offers a safe and effective procedure that is easily performed under local anesthesia while awake.  A laser is used to melt the chin fat which is then easily suctioned away.  The heat produced by the laser also stimulates skin tightening.  Even better, the surgeon can expertly sculpt the chin and neck and even reduce jowls.  So compared to the non-surgical treatments, Liposuction offers better results after one procedure, produces skin tightening and offers sculpting of the chin and neck.  Downtime after smartlipo of the chin is minimal with several days of swelling requiring massage and a chin wrap and occasional bruising.  Double chin surgery is a great option for many patients. If you are considering getting rid of your double chin, the best first step is a free consultation at Beleza Medspa to decide which procedure is best for you.  …

How much does Juvederm cost? When you buy Juvederm, you are basically paying for the cost of the syringe.  The cost of injecting it is built into that price.  Juvederm comes in 1.0 cc syringes.  So each syringe you purchase will give you the equivalent of 1.0 cc of volume. Why does Juvederm cost so much? When you consider that you are purchasing a highly refined medical product and the skills and artistry of an injector, the Juvederm price is not really that bad.  Considering there is not really any other option besides surgery involving implants or fat transfer to restore facial volume, the Juvederm cost is a bargain.  Plus, if you take into account that Juvederm injections can be performed safely in office with little downtime, the cost of Juvederm is even more reasonable. I have a tight budget, is Juvederm for me? Yes and no.  Dermal fillers like Juvederm are all about adding volume.  If you do not put enough volume in, you will see little to no results.  So if you need 2 or more syringes of Juvederm and can only afford one, you are better off waiting.  Juvederm injections can be life-changing and are a worthy investment.  Plus, properly placed Juvederm, especially Voluma, can last for years. How can I save on Juvederm Cost? Many practices will discount the Juvederm syringes if you buy more than one.  It just makes sense to make it easier for you to purchase the right amount of Juvederm to get the best results.  There are many other discounts offered at Beleza Medspa including Beleza Babe Vip Program, Brilliant Distinctions and Essential packages where you can lower the Juvederm cost even more. The other way to save on Juvederm, is to improve the overall condition of your skin.  If you work to increase collagen production and skin elasticity, the effects of Juvederm injections will be increased.  This can be accomplished with use of products like retinols and growth factors and procedures like microneedling and fractional laser resurfacing.

Every day  Austin Breast Implant patients are bombarded with the latest Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner or other celebrity bikini pictures. How (and why) did they pick that size?  What kind of implants did they get? Now there are even more choices than before. Allergan has announced  today announced that the approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market NATRELLE INSPIRA™ round gel-filled smooth breast implants. Inspira is different from other available breast implant styles as it has a higher fill ratio (90%) that is designed to provide an additional breast shaping option for women undergoing reconstruction, augmentation or revision surgery.     Inspira has been available in Europe and Canada for over 10 years, however the implant is new for United States costumers. The breast implant cost may be slightly higher for this new implant The FDA has approved a number of new implant styles in the last several years. The one that has received the greatest attention is the highly-cohesive “Gummy Bear” implants that maintain their shape even if the outer shell is compromised. “While these implants have received a lot of attention, they are best suited for specific cases, such as breast reconstruction or other specific applications.” In fact the number and kinds of implants can be overwhelming to many patients, which is why you should seek the services of an experienced breast surgeon. At Beleza Medical Spa, we have over 18 years and thousands of patients’ experience to help guide you on your path to breast enhancement. The main choices a patient needs to consider are Size, Silicon or Saline and Shape (or Profile) Size is just that, the number of cc’s or ml’s in the implant. You implant size selection needs to be made on what looks good on your frame. A 5’2″ woman may see a large increase in size with a 350cc implant, but in order to see the same increase in breast size, a 5’8″ woman may need a 450cc or greater. Our advice is to “Pick what looks good for you. Don’t worry about cup sizes or cc’s. If you pick what you like, you’ll make the best choice.” Silicone or Saline. In our practice, more that 95% of patient’s choose Silicone over Saline due to the significantly improved texture and feel of Silicone over Saline. Remember the Silicone Controversy of the 1980’s and 90’s? Today’s 5th generation implants are vastly superior to older implants in terms of safety and reliability. Also it has been scientifically proven that silicone implants to not cause cancer or connective tissue diseases. Shape (Profile) Every implant comes in as many as 4 versions of the the same size. For example a 400cc  implant comes in  Moderate Profile, Moderate Plus, High Profile and Ultra-High Profile. While each of these implants have the same volume, the higher profile implants have a more narrow base to compensate for the higher profile.   Higher profile implants may sacrifice the amount of cleavage than a lower profile implant of the same volume. The final choice is based on the individual patient’s desires. In summary, “In the long run, the final choice of implant is the patient’s, based on her desires, goals and expectations and aided by the advice and guidance of her surgeon.”  …

What affects liposuction recovery? The good news is that recovery from liposuction surgery has markedly improved over the years.  The widespread use of local, tumescent anesthesia has not only decreased liposuction recovery time, but has also made it safer, faster and less expensive.  Tumescent anesthesia involves the injection of a dilute saline lidocaine solution into the fat layer before the procedure.  This solution provides anesthesia and prevents bleeding.   As the solution expands the fat layer, it also moves nerves, blood vessels and other tissues out-of-the-way.  As a result, there is less trauma to these structures as the fat is removed and liposuction recovery is improved.  Plus, at the end of the procedure you are numb and back on your feet immediately. Other factors affecting liposuction recovery include overall health prior to the procedure, duration and intensity of the procedure and individual variations in pain tolerance.  Some of these factors can be controlled, like being in good shape, but some are out of your control. So what is liposuction recovery time? The great thing about liposuction is that at the end of the case you will see the fat that has been removed from your body.  You know that your results are going to eventually be there.  It is at this point that the liposuction recovery period begins.  The areas where the fat has been removed now have empty space.  Your body doesn’t like empty space and begins to fill them with fluid, causing swelling.  This swelling begins in the first 48 hours after the procedure and will last for weeks to months.  The good news is that your body will remove this swelling on its own.  While we wait for this, we help the process by wearing a compression garment, doing daily massage and moving our muscles with exercise.  We also allow you to drain the anesthesia from your body for several days to further speed your recovery.  Everyday the swelling will resolve and your new sleeker shape will become evident. The other concern after liposuction is pain.  The tumescent anesthesia will provide from 8-12 hours of anesthesia after the procedure.  It also wears off gradually and most patients report a mild to moderate soreness at this point.   Pain medication is provided in case it’s needed, but the need for refills is rare.  Bruising is another concern.  Tumescent anesthesia contains epinephrine that constricts blood vessels and prevents bleeding.  The combination of the epinephrine and moving the blood vessels out-of-the-way, makes bruising relatively rare.  However some patients tend to bruise more than others.   The good thing is that bruising always resolves on its own. Liposuction recovery timeline. During the first 1-2 days after surgery you will be very thin, moderately sore and little swelling.  You will drain from some of the lower incisions for 1-2 days.  Between days 1-2 the swelling will increase and the pain begins to diminish.   Most patients return to work and normal activity after 2 days (some sooner!). Over the next several weeks to months, you will be wearing a compression garment as the swelling subsides.  Pain is usually absent and is replaced by some isolated areas of sensitivity and numbness.  At the 4-6 week mark, much of the swelling has subsided and skin has tightened and we get an idea of your results.  Final results take 3-6 months as you fully recovery. Liposuction recovery tips. There are several things you can do to improve your liposuction recovery time.  Choose a liposuction surgeon who is experienced at performing liposuction totally under tumescent anesthesia.  As discussed above the advantages for speedy recovery with local anesthesia are unmatched.  Eliminating the recovery after general anesthesia further accelerates your recovery.   You should also go into the procedure as strong and as healthy as possible.  The healthier you are, the faster your liposuction recovery will be.  It is also important to follow your post liposuction instructions carefully.  This means wearing your compression garment, performing daily massage and moving your body.  The faster you get back into the full swing of things, the faster you will recover. Smart Lipo Recovery Time. Smart Lipo or Smartlipo, entails the use of a laser during liposuction.  The smart lipo laser will help to melt fat and tighten skin.  In terms of recovery, smart lipo can reduce recovery time by allowing less trauma from liposuction as well as cauterizing blood vessels, reducing bruising. Chin Liposuction Recovery Time. Chin or neck liposuction recovery time is significantly improved over other body areas.  We tend to use more smartlipo laser in this area, causing less trauma.  The chin and neck have a great blood supply and healing is faster.  We can usually remove the compression garment in the first week and swelling subsides quickly.

Liposuction vs Tummy Tuck. This is an age-old plastic surgery question that both patients & surgeons have struggled with.  In except the most obvious cases, there is no one right answer for everyone.  There are many individualized factors that come in to play. Both liposuction and tummy tucks have their advantages and certain downsides. What is Liposuction? Simply put, liposuction is the suctioning of fat from the body.  Now it’s more complicated than that, as liposuction technique approaches an art form.  Removing fat in the right amount from the right areas to achieve body contouring, requires an artistic eye.   So liposuction is ideally suited to remove fatty deposits from around the body. The other lesser known effect of liposuction is skin tightening.  We routinely see at least 50% skin tightening after a liposuction procedure.  This is important, as the fat layer gets smaller we want the skin to follow along.  This is the basis of shrink-wrap liposuction.  There are several advanced liposuction techniques to try to achieve even more skin tightening.  They involve performing superficial liposuction, right under the skin to maximize the post-procedure skin retraction.  Laser Liposuction using Smartlipo can also be used to introduce heat which further tightens the skin. The best thing about liposuction is that it can be safely performed under local anesthesia.  There are no big incisions, just multiple small entrance points.  The patient can resume normal activity almost immediately and downtime is minimal. What is a Tummy Tuck? A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure mainly indicated to deal with loose skin and muscles of the abdomen.  In many women, the weight gain during pregnancy stretches out both the abdominal wall and skin.  This leads to droopy, protuberant belly.  The tummy tuck deals with this by removing the loose skin and tightening the abdominal wall.   The tummy tuck procedure requires a rather large incision below the bikini area.   The loose skin is then pulled down and the excess removed.  Usually this requires the belly button to be repositioned.  Deep stitches are then placed to sew the loose abdominal muscles together.   Liposuction can be combined with a tummy tuck for body contouring. The advantages of a tummy tuck is that it will leave you immediately with a flat abdomen, remove stretch marks and tighten your muscles.  It can be performed under local anesthesia, but usually, general anesthesia is required.  The downside includes the large scar, higher rate of complications, more downtime and limitations, a ‘surgical’ looking abdomen and added cost. So Liposuction Vs Tummy Tuck, which is right for me? If you have excess abdominal fat and no loose skin, liposuction is your best bet.  If you have mild loose skin that snaps back after tugging it, liposuction with targeted skin tightening will also work.  If you have a large apron of skin that has lost its elasticity or have had massive weight loss, a tummy tuck is required.   These are just generalized recommendations.  What is right for you depends on your amount of fat and loose skin, your tolerance for a scar and downtime, desired results and available funds.   This a where a plastic surgery consultation comes in, to help you assess your situation and give you options for liposuction vs tummy tuck.   Procedure     Liposuction     Tummy Tuck Anesthesia            Local Awake             General Asleep Scars                      Small                         Large Results                  1 Month                    Immediate Skin Tightening  >50%                         100% Muscle repair      No                              Yes Stretch Marks     No                              Yes Downtime           1 Week                       1 Month Cost                      $$                               $$$$ Mommy Makeover Of course, there are many other changes to a woman’s body during pregnancy besides her belly.  A mommy makeover can combine breast rejuvenation procedures like a breast augmentation and/or breast lift with a tummy tuck for decreased downtime and better overall results.

What is Laser Liposuction? Liposuction has been around a long time.  It basically involves the use of vacuum cannulas to suction fat from the body.  It has been refined over the years and now is mostly performed while awake using local anesthesia.   The size of the cannulas used has decreased and the emphasis has shifted to body sculpting and contouring.  Loose skin has always been an issue with liposuction.  Typically, you can see at least 50% skin retraction with aggressive liposuction.  But with areas with very loose skin, an excision of skin like a tummy tuck may be necessary. Lasers have been used on the outside of the skin for more than 20 years.  It is well known that when heat is introduced to the skin, it causes tightening and stimulates new collagen formation.  Around 8 years ago, Smartlipo (Smart Liposuction) was introduced to the market.  This was a laser specifically dedicated to laser liposuction.  The laser was used for 3 main effects: skin tightening fat melting cauterization of bleeding The Smartlipo laser was found to be able to help provide better liposuction results.  Patients showed smoother results and tighter skin as well as less downtime and bruising.  Smartlipo didn’t replace liposuction, but made it better.  It is just another tool in the surgeon’s bag. Does Laser Lipo work? The short answer is yes!  Since the introduction of Smartlipo, many other lasers have been introduced.  The power and wavelengths of these lasers has also evolved.   Stronger power allows more energy to be introduced into the tissues in a shorter time.  The wavelength of light used is important due to what tissues they affect.  The original Smartlipo used 1064nm that mainly affected fat and blood vessels.  1064 is generally considered to be inefficient in melting fat and tightening skin.  Since then, Smartlipo now has the Smartlipo Triplex which adds 1320nm and 1440nm wavelengths.  1320nm is highly absorbed by the skin and connective tissue leading to skin tightening.  The 1440nm wavelength is highly absorbed by fat, making it ideal for melting fat.  So the Smartlipo Triplex combines the laser wavelengths to give the best fat melting, skin tightening and less downtime. Laser Lipo at Beleza Medspa We have performed over 1000 cases of laser liposuction.  We have gone from the original Smartlipo to the powerful Smartlipo Triplex.  We know the limitations of Smartlipo as well as its strengths.   We have found Smartlipo Laser Liposuction ideal for liposuction of the chin and neck.  This area is defined by a small amount of fat and usually some loose skin.  Laser lipo is the ideal tool to melt this fat while causing skin tightening.   We also routinely use the Smartlipo Laser to aid areas that need additional skin tightening.  Aggressive liposuction is always the first step in causing skin retraction.  The laser is then used at the end of the case to add heat to aid skin tightening. What is the Laser Lipo Cost? The good thing is that laser lipo shouldn’t cost you more than regular liposuction.  We include the cost of laser liposuction into all of our surgery quotes.  Our goal is to always provide you the best results with whatever tools we have to utilize. The term Smart Liposuction used to be just about the use of the laser.  We now consider Smart Liposuction to involve awake tumescent anesthesia (safer), use of microcannulas (finer) and the addition of laser lipo (better).  This is state of the art body sculpting and what you should demand from your surgeon.…

Is a Mini Tummy Tuck Right for Me?

Loose Skin on the Belly. For many people who are trying to lose weight, get in shape and tone up and the belly remains one of the most challenging areas to shrink. Women in particularly are prone to sagging tummies post-pregnancy after the skin has been stretched and the abdominal muscles have been separated causing a protruding appearance. As important as regular exercise and a good diet  are to achieving and maintaining a sleek stomach, these efforts don’t always yield the desired results. This can be very frustrating for those who are trying so hard to lose a few inches around their mid sections.  Some of these patients may be helped by a mini tummy tuck. What is a Mini Tummy Tuck? A mini–tummy tuck is a popular variation of the ever popular plastic surgery procedure the tummy tuck.  Tummy tuck patients  are looking to be rid of excess skin on their tummy and tighten their stomach region. A mini tummy tuck is much like a traditional tummy tuck in that an incision is made to remove excess skin and pull the remaining skin down tighter for a more streamlined appearance. The perfect candidate for a mini tummy tuck is someone whose main frustrations with their stomach rest just below their belly button and who are in generally good shape otherwise. These ideal patients may have been struggling with a weight loss plateau and are engaged in regular exercise and have a fairly healthy diet, but just can’t seem to get their lower stomach toned up. Mini Tummy Tuck vs Full Tummy Tuck The mini-tummy tuck can be performed easily with the help of a local anesthesia which is much less risky than traditional tummy tucks in which a general anesthesia is used. The belly button will not require relocation with a mini tummy tuck as the loose skin below the belly button is removed and the edges are carefully sewn up. If there is loose skin in the upper abdomen, the mini tummy tuck will not work. Also, he mini tummy tuck only provides limited access to the abdominal muscles.  As a result, loose muscles above the belly button cannot be addressed. How long does a mini tummy tuck last? A mini tummy tuck provides long-lasting results and the procedure is usually completed within a 2-5 hour time frame depending on the patient’s individual circumstances. Recovery time varies as well but most patients can expect a 2-6 week recovery period before returning to work and a 12 week period in which all strenuous activity should be avoided while the region heals.  No drains are needed with a mini-tummy tuck which is usually necessary part of the traditional tummy tuck process. How much does a mini tummy tuck cost? The cost of a mini-tummy tuck is significantly less expensive than a traditional tummy tuck as well though the cost of the procedure will need to be discussed with your doctor beforehand.  Cosmetic Surgery Prices.

Hair transplant procedures have come a long way from the days where a hole punching technique was used to pull hair through small holes in the scalp to insert hair plugs which often resulted in apparent scarring and an unnatural hair pattern. These days, a hair transplant procedure known as “micrografting” creates a much more authentic hair replacement effect for those suffering from hair loss.   Micrografting uses single small strips of hair that are carefully removed from the back of the patient’s head where balding rarely occurs and then grafts these small strips into the scalp where hair loss is apparent. These areas where hair is removed are called “donor” areas and the modern technique may use as many as 4,000 small grafts in one single micrografting session. By taking so many small little hair follicle samples and grafting them in one at a time, the hair line ends up looking and behaving naturally without appearing obvious.   The small follicular units of skin and hair are typically made up of three to four hairs each though different sized grafts will be used to properly cover the needed areas while keeping the look completely natural. The two to three hair graft units are usually placed further back on the head to create denser, thicker hair while the smaller hair grafts are placed up front to mimic the natural growth of hair. Since so much time and care is spent on the micrografting procedure with small units of hair being grafted in one at a time, the results are almost completely undetectable.   Most patients will be given a local anesthesia as a part of the procedure though the grafting process is fairly quick and painless as it is. Some patients will, of course, require a little more time depending on how much hair loss they’ve experienced and how large the treatment area covers.   The recovery post-micrografting is quite mild with patients typically leaving without any need for bandages. Most patients should be able to get by with over the counter pain medications for a couple of nights following treatment to help them sleep more comfortably while the areas around the small stiches heal.   Though an immediate difference can be seen right after the micrografting has taken place, optimal results can be enjoyed after 2-4 months following treatment. This is when the transplanted hair begins to grow in and fill out the area creating a natural, thicker head of hair.…

Brazilian Butt Lift and Smartlipo Liposuction of the Waist. Many women seeking a bigger butt with the Brazilian Butt Lift are strictly focused on how much fat they can transfer.  They come in asking about the average amount of ccs of fat transferred and ask about the need to gain weight.  The fat transfer portion of the Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL procedure is very important.  However, many women are not aware of the even more important body sculpting of the waist.  A properly contoured and smaller waist and back can make any butt look bigger before injecting any fat.  Waist trainers can help with this. The Relationship of the Waist and Back to Butt Size. When we look at someone’s body, we actually judge the size of the buttocks in comparison the size of their back and waist.  Look at celebrity Nicki Minaj.  She does have a large, round butt, but its her tiny waist that really makes it stand out.  Many women who seek the Brazilian Butt Lift have good sized butts, but have large amounts of fat on their waists and backs.  This fat can be almost as large as their buttocks.  This leads to no transition from the back to the butt and the appearance of a flat butt.  This is despite having a good sized butt.   Butt Surgery: Body Sculpting of the Waist and Back & Waist Trainers The critical part of the Brazilian Butt Lift is aggressive liposuction of the waist and back.   The surgeon will shape a round top to the buttocks as well as a sharp transition from the back to the buttocks.  This gives the ledge effect that really emphasizes the butt in jeans.  This effect is entirely obtained using Smartlipo Liposuction.   Fat taken from the waist and back then can be transferred to the areas of the butt where it will have the most effect.  The overall goal is to make a rounder, plumper ‘bubble butt’ with the transferred fat.  The combination of the waist and back body sculpting with the buttocks fat transfer, gives the desired results of the Brazilian Butt Lift.  Use of waist trainers before and after Butt Lift surgery can improve results.   Smaller Waist after Liposuction Brazilian Butt Lift at Beleza MedSpa Beleza Cosmetic Surgeons have performed hundreds of Brazilian Butt Lift procedures. They are experts at performing the procedure totally under local anesthesia.  There is no risk of general anesthesia and patients are back on their feet immediately.  They also performed thousands of Smartlipo Liposuction procedures and can sculpt that skinny waist and back to give you that bigger butt!  Beleza Medspa also offer an affordable Butt Lift Cost.…
