A woman on TikTok, Jordyn Genevie, has shared her traumatic experience with a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedure, comparing the pain to being beaten up by 20 gorillas. Her video went viral with over 1.2 million views. Genevie’s experience was in response to another TikToker’s video, who claimed the pain was similar to being sore after not working out for a while.
However, Genevie’s recovery was different, and she claimed the pain was unbearable. A BBL is a cosmetic treatment where fat from other parts of the body is injected into the butt to make it appear larger. The procedure is risky, with a 1 in 20,000 death rate.
Many people commented on Genevie’s post, with some agreeing that the recovery pain was severe and lasted for several weeks. Some people thanked Genevie for being honest about her experience, as it is often portrayed as a simple cosmetic procedure. Another TikToker, Adea, also shared her experience of feeling bruised and burned all over her body after the BBL procedure.
Recently, another TikToker claimed that she almost died after developing necrosis, the death of body tissue, in one of her butt cheeks after her BBL procedure. She had to undergo further surgery to have the necrosis removed. The comments on Genevie’s post show that her experience is not unique and highlight the potential risks of the BBL procedure.
