Deciding to have a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) was a serious decision for Claira Ausina, a 36-year-old active mother of two boys who lives in the south of France, because she understands that the procedure can be fatal. While she put off the decision for a long time, she was convinced the procedure would change her life for the better.
I exercise, play tennis, and jog. So I’m very active. For me, it’s very important to feel well physically and mentally. I really wanted to lose weight in the abdominal area after my pregnancy. And in this area, I was not able to lose at all, no matter what I did on a daily basis. So I’ve been looking into it for a very long time,” says Claira who sought to undergo a BBL to move fat from her stomach to her buttock. “I have girlfriends who have already done this procedure but who were going abroad, especially to Colombia. But there are significant risks because it can lead to dramatic death and that’s what slowed me down.”
Knowing about the associated risks, it was important to Claira to find a surgeon who could perform the procedure safely. Her research brought her to Dr. Alexis Delobaux, a plastic surgeon based in Paris, France.
I asked my network and came across Dr. Alexis Delobaux. I heard nothing but good things about him and that’s why I wanted to find out more about his practice and to know how he works,” she says. “I discovered he uses ultrasound guidance because he talks a lot about it on social networks. His technique is revolutionary and I feel the procedure will be safer. It’s what motivated me to book the procedure.”
According to Dr. Delobaux, Claira’s awareness of the risks of BBLs is not unique due to information that is now widely shared on social media and in tabloids.
This last year, I think I had five or seven patients who came only because they knew I was using ultrasound for the practice,” Dr. Delobaux reports. “It’s great, because many patients are more informed now compared to five years before, and they know that with ultrasound, it’s much safer.”
