Sietske Atsma is co-founder of the fantastic platform Who Wants to Be Beautiful (www.wiemooiwilzijn.nl) She has donated her body alive to science in order to inform her followers as good as possible about all possible ways to make yourself feel better and better. In the meantime she has found the right specialist for every embellishment. Sietske recently underwent a Brazilian Butt Lift; a billing enlargement with own fat. To get her derrière and the areas where the fat has been removed (waist, thighs and stomach) nicely smooth, she started with LPG Endermologie treatments. Today she tells all the ins and outs about her operation and how LPG helps her in the healing process.
It had some feet in the earth, but I have them; buttocks! After years of annoyed in the mirror looking at my flat derrière, then months of toil in the gym and then still dissatisfied with my butt, I lay there … In my bare ass on the operating table. I started filling my buttocks with my own fat. A so-called lipofilling treatment or Brazilian Butt Lift.
Not everyone is eligible for such a boost with own fat. A condition for the treatment is, reasonably obvious, that you have enough fat to move to your buttocks. At the first consultation with the doctor it turned out that I was not a suitable candidate for a lipofilling treatment. Now I have never been very full and after all that labor in the gym my fat percentage was even lower. The only option was to gain some weight by growing some fat.
American buttocks doctor Mendieta has developed a special diet for that, namely the hamburger diet. That sounds nice, but if you normally live on a healthy diet of vegetables and quinoa, it is a torment. But it works, after half a year of fries, hamburgers and liters of chocolate milk I gained an extra 8 kilos (!). Enough to create a big butt.
The fat had accumulated in a half year on my stomach, in my waist, thighs and even on my upper arms. The treatment lasted a good 4 hours, we removed each fat cell by means of liposuction and then injected it again at the back.
My ambition of this whole project was of course a bigger butt. I never considered the advantages and disadvantages of the operation. The positive advantage was that, in addition to those rounder buttocks, the liposuction suddenly resulted in a narrower waist and the most flat stomach ever. Very nice! What I did not think about, is that it takes quite a while before you are cured of a liposuction treatment.
The loosening of the fat causes hardening under the skin that can cause unevenness. I have seen that (more often) and is not a pretty sight, I can tell you.
To prevent those humps and bumps, I went to investigate. That sounds like a real big thing but means so much as that I called Annebeth Kroeskop and asked her the question, ‘How do you cure the fastest and most beautiful after liposuction?’.
I asked that question at the right time. The LPG endermology treatment was just included in the KNAP product range and proved to be the ideal way to support and accelerate the healing process after liposcopy.
Two weeks after the operation I started the series of LPG endermology treatments. First only to drain the fluid faster, with lymphatic drainage and ‘kneading’ after 6 weeks. You can imagine that this was sometimes sensitive at first, but as the tissue softened, I actually started to enjoy the LPG treatments. You can compare the treatments with a firm deeptissue massage, delicious!
So nice even that I have had a session of LPG treatments again in a few weeks. Not for that belly and lovehandles, which are now super tight, but for my buttocks. Ha! Never knew that more fat in your buttocks equals cellulite, new bumps and bumps. Learned something new again…
