Given the dangerous reputation of Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBL), Amanda Leyva, a wife and mother of three, thought long and hard for years before undergoing the procedure. After moving to Miami, where BBLs are popular, she began her research to find the best plastic surgeon in the city.
We recently had the opportunity to interview Amanda about her experience.
Miami is the center for plastic surgery and the BBL or plastic surgery in general is just a dime a dozen down here. So, there were lots of choices and a lot of doctors who had produced beautiful results; I found Dr. Pazmiño, and he was definitely different,” Amanda says.
Watch the video to see what she says. Or read on for highlights.
I was really excited to meet with him in person for a consult as most plastic surgeons in the area just want you to send in photos and then you go in for surgery before you’ve met them. We talked about the procedure and about how he does it a little bit differently with the ultrasound technology that it makes it so much safer. I told my husband that this is the only doctor I would consider. Knowing that Dr. Pazmiño uses ultrasound gave me the confidence that I would be ok.”
Amanda was back at work two weeks after the surgery and three months following the successful surgery is delighted with the results.
It gave me exactly what I was looking for. There were no complications, everything went really well. The first week is a little tough, but just day by day, it gets better and better,” she says. “And you see the results and the changes every day too. So, it’s exciting. It’s an exciting process. And I love it.”
