If you want to look good, or at least do things you think will make you look good, there is likely to be some pain involved. For some people, that means doing it the old-fashioned way — via diet and exercise. Others prefer shortcuts, you know, like medical procedures.

To each his own, but beware: Brazilian butt lifts can feel like getting beat up by 20 gorillas. At least, that’s TikTok influencer Jordyn Genevie described her own butt lift.
“I was about to die,” Genevie of her pain with some gain. “I remember waking up from surgery, screaming from the top of my lungs. The pain was unbearable.”
@jordyngenevie #stitch with @gbenxo my bbl experience was so traumatizing. I don’t know if I could ever do that again 😩😣 #fyp #fy #bbl ♬ original sound – Jordyn Genevie
She added that the experience was “literally like getting dropped off in the jungle and getting your a– whooped by 20 gorillas … I mean, I don’t know, hitting your toe on the corner of a metal boxspring times a trillion. B–ch, it hurts. No, never again.”
So, no, she does not intend to do it again. Perhaps squaring off with 20 gorillas, however, is on er agenda. For Genevie, it’s all one the same.
And Brazilian butt lifts do indeed come with their fair share of risk. As relayed by the New York Post, one in 20,000 patients actually DIE from the procedure.
“In a standard BBL procedure, a doctor injects fat from other areas of the body into the butt to make it appear bigger,’ the Post wrote. “However, the cosmetic treatment can be risky: A 2020 study published in the National Library of Medicine revealed that the death rate for a BBL is 1 in 20,000.”
In other words, it may be your best bet to go with the butt you have. Just ask Genevie.
