The home of unique ready-to-wear items, shoes and accessories for fashion-loving women in Germany has chosen Centric Software as a long-term PLM partner to eliminate non-value added tasks, prioritize more strategic product-related activities and transform operational efficiency, ensuring beautiful products arrive to market quickly and efficiently. Centric Software® provides the most innovative enterprise solutions to fashion, retail, footwear, outdoor, luxury, consumer goods and home décor companies to achieve strategic and operational digital transformation goals.
HALLHUBER GmbH was founded in Munich in 1977. At the time, the concept of young, trend-conscious brands was still scarce. Today, HALLHUBER is one of the most important vertical fashion brands for self-confident and sophisticated women in Germany, with an internationally connected design team producing up to 26 new collections every year. HALLHUBER sells its range in over 380 stores and sales areas in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, the Benelux countries, Poland, Great Britain, and Ireland as well as its own online platforms in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France. The company has consistently pursued its market position in the “Bridge-to-Premium” category over the past 40 years.
With a new collection every two weeks at HALLHUBER, the margin for production error is small in a retail world where there is a growing consumer demand to be on-trend and on-time. Felix Gross, Head of Project Management says an outdated PDM solution was creating internal inefficiencies and hindering the ability to make the strategic decisions required for fast-paced collections.
“We were mainly using spreadsheets, email and a very old-fashioned PDM. None of these systems spoke to each other, so there was a growing need to reevaluate and streamline our design processes in order to save time and minimize mistakes. We wanted to reduce the number of tools we were working with to just one. That’s where Centric stepped in.”
By incorporating information from previous collections, Centric PLM saves teams hours usually spent searching for crucial data. Increased visibility and efficiency at every stage of product development maximizes time to value, ensuring quantities and quality are on track to meet promised delivery and fulfillment commitments.
Commenting on Centric’s position as Fashion PLM market leader, Felix Gross says, “The single most important metric for us is time to value, ensuring that our teams spend more time on using their talents so we can explore new ideas and expand into new categories, while making smarter, more strategic product decisions. It’s transformational for us to build this partnership. Centric is constantly developing new product features and effective growth strategies we can benefit from.”
“We are very excited that HALLHUBER has chosen to partner with Centric,” says Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software. “We look forward to supporting their progress, designing and delivering beautiful products for an increasingly dynamic and competitive female fashion industry.”

Photographed, produced and styled by Laspata DeCaro, Americana Manhasset's Spring 2020 campaign was shot at various locations in and around Los Angeles. Inspired by the whimsy and fantasy of "Alice In Wonderland," the setting is one of enchanted gardens and resplendent topiaries. Oversized mushrooms, blooming flowers and striking props appear in vivid, psychedelic colors alongside the season’s best looks. A quote from Dr. Seuss opens the campaign and sets the tone: “Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
In conjunction with the still images, Americana Manhasset has debuted a short film also entitled “Americana in Wonderland” starring He Cong and Kit Butler. Produced using stop motion animation, the piece is a wildly fun and fantastical romp through Americana’s version of Wonderland, complete with a Cheshire cat and a magical tea party.
Americana’s Spring Book is direct-mailed to 100,000 targeted households. The images and video are being featured in various print and digital media, including The New York Times and nyt.com. They are also being shown prominently throughout the season on americanamanhasset.com and on Americana’s social media channels.
“'Alice in Wonderland' was our inspiration, but the overarching idea behind this campaign is that fashion is a flight of fancy, a means of expression that can transcend reality,” said Charles DeCaro. “The collections this season have a real sense of charm, with each designer approaching that idea differently, whether it be through the use of bright color or fun prints or unexpected details and shapes. As always, while we had a clear editorial voice and a strong vision for this campaign, the fashion and the designers’ messages remain the focus. We shoot an appropriate image for each brand, from Chanel, Gucci and Celine, to Rag & Bone, Theory and Zimmermann, with each photograph also working as part of the whole.”
Americana Manhasset is a premier collection of over 60 fine shops, including Hermès, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Cartier, Ermenegildo Zegna, Van Cleef & Arpels, Bottega Veneta, Hirshleifers, Ralph Lauren, London Jewelers and more, all within a unique outdoor environment designed by renowned architect Peter Marino and landscape designer Oehme van Sweden. Americana Manhasset offers a complimentary Personal Shopping Service, a remarkable luxury fashion and gift resource. Located on Long Island’s beautiful North Shore, Americana Manhasset is 20 miles from Manhattan and 50 miles from the Hamptons.

Australian Auctioneer Of The Year and Television Personality, James Pratt was a big hit with USA audiences when he recently appeared on the popular Texas podcast, Opinions and Beer.
During the podcast Pratt spoke on his success in auctioneering and acting and in particular his new upcoming film Malibu Crush, which he says is a passion project for him. "It’s crucial for people to make the most of what you have now and not procrastinate waiting for the perfect time. Something he says has helped with his auctioneering and acting success.
Pratt describes Malibu Crush as a throwback to the 80s and 90s comedies such as National Lampoons Vacation with Chevy Chase. In the film, Michael and Duey are two best friends from Pasadena on a hopeless quest to find a long-lost love now living in Sydney Australia. “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take, he said when asked why he was making the film now.
During the podcast Pratt also spoke on the benefits of being Australian overseas and how you can get away with a lot more being Australian, especially if you get into some trouble. When told by host of Opinions and Beer, Adam Lee Morgan that he was only the second Australian to appear on the Texas-based show, Pratt joked, I think there is a gap sometimes when you say you’re from Australia and in another country, he said laughing, despite the fact we have 70 story skyscrapers and very modern tech cities, people overseas often think we ride Kangaroo’s to the airport and wrestle crocodiles, when they ask me about this, I tell them, "yes, I do, in return, you feed the Kangaroo for taking you to the airport.
Adam joked it’s similar being from Texas sometimes when I mention I'm from Texas people still feel it’s cowboys, beer and guns and this lawless place.
Later on in the show Lee, Morgan commented on James being multi-talented, including winning ,The 2019 Australian Auctioneer Of The Year Award, he said "In the US auctions for Real Estate is not such a common form of selling however you must be good because you got the attention of everyone here especially celebrities. Pratt commented I'm very thankful for being able to hustle in different industries and keep on learning,

In anticipation of New York Jewelry Week, Wilensky brings the marvel of sinuous gemstones to Chelsea. Evocative and ethereal, Naomi Sarna debuts original works at the gallery from November 20th-December 20th, 2019. The award-winning designer will showcase hand carved jewels, inspired by the drapery of fabric and flow of water—a homage to motion in precious gem material. Sculptural and wearable, Sarna’s work complements Wilensky, where breathtaking aesthetic meets exquisite minerals.
“Naomi Sarna is not a stone carver. She is a poet, crafting stories with deep literature through stone. Each piece possesses its own spellbinding personality. I fell in love with a jadeite bracelet I tried on. It felt as if this amulet had chosen me, and not the other way around. There is truly something magical about the Naomi Sarna collection,” says Troy Wilensky, Managing Director, Wilensky.
During “Naomi Sarna: Stone in Motion,” the emotive power of colored gemstones is unleashed. Viewers follow meticulous curves throughout the cases, enraptured by each complex carving. Sarna’s citrine and pink sapphire “Solar Flare” ring evokes the vibrancy of the sun, conjuring the fiery red of flares erupting on the surface. Her amethyst and diamond cocktail ring is reminiscent of rippling water, calming and fluid. Both bespoke cocktail rings sit along the hand’s natural shape, with Sarna’s signature comfort fit. “Feather,” a 91.64. ct. unheated, carved, winged aquamarine brooch is masterfully crafted, creating an intricate play of light and color throughout the gemstone…a jeweled tour de force.
With twenty-three American Gem Trade Association Spectrum Award wins, and pieces in the Smithsonian’s National Gem Collection, Naomi Sarna is internationally renowned for her carving, setting, and design. Her journey involves impassioned activism for the Maasai of Tanzania, promoting female entrepreneurship, and giving back proceeds from select pieces to support eye health in the local mining community.
Sarna says of her exhibition at Wilensky, “I see my jewels as a transition from their natural origins as crystals from the earth, to their completed journey for the person who wears them. My hands compose their story. The fortunate wearer treasures both their existence, and their story in the same way Wilensky mineral origins are treasured. To see them in that context is a reunion of spirit, art, and nature.”
Exclusively featuring original hand-carved pieces in the contemporary gallery space, “Naomi Sarna: Stone in Motion” will run from November 20th-December 20th, 2019, Monday through Saturday, from 11:00 AM-6:00 PM at Wilensky, 173 10th Avenue, New York, NY, 10011.
On November 20th, from 6:00 PM- 8:00 PM, an opening reception will be held at the gallery, in partnership with the Women’s Jewelry Association New York Metro Chapter, and New York City Jewelry Week (NYCJW). For questions regarding exquisite minerals or sales, contact Wilensky directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 646-822-0837, or visit http://www.wilenskyminerals.com. For information regarding Naomi Sarna, contact email@example.com or visit naomisarna.com. For press inquiries, or questions regarding this release, contact Olga Gonzalez at Pietra PR at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 212-913-9761.
Wilensky has entered a new chapter with the opening of its gallery in the Chelsea art district of NYC, presenting exquisite minerals among the world’s great art galleries, displaying them as works of art. The gallery opens up the mesmerizing world of exquisite minerals to everyone. Minerals are displayed alongside neighboring galleries exhibiting Warhol, Basquiat, Pollock and Picasso. Achieving the emotional impact of art through exquisite mineral specimens is the goal. Not a competition, but a convergence.
About Naomi Sarna
Connecting directly to the source, Naomi Sarna travels the world in search of colored gemstones. Inspired by nature and its sinuous lines, Sarna has mastered the art of hand carving, as well as setting, a feat few jewelry designers attest to. Considered one of the finest carvers in the world, she is the winner of many prestigious awards, including twenty-three AGTA Spectrum Awards. Her work is represented in the Smithsonian National Gem Collection, and has been displayed in several museums. Sarna is recognized for the incorporation of unusual natural pearls, flowing gem carvings, and extraordinary fit and finish.
Paper & Rock LLC has raised more than ,000 so far since introducing the world’s most eco-friendly jeans on Kickstarter.
Paper & Rock jeans are made from recycled plastic, which will help divert the millions bottles that people throw out per minute from ending up in oceans and landfills – and instead repurposes these plastic bottles into stylish and comfortable jeans that can be a staple in every person’s closet.
“We're excited to triple our goal during crowdfunding for our new jeans, made specifically for people who really care about sustainability and combating pollution and who are also looking for a way to make a direct, positive impact on our environment,” said Paper & Rock LLC Founder Hitesh Tanwani. “If every American buys one pair of our jeans, we can divert 3.3 billion bottles from ending up in our oceans.”
Made to be worn for casual or formal occasions, each pair of jeans contains yarn made from 10 recycled plastic bottles and organic cotton, zippers made from recycled plastic and buttons made from a 100 percent natural product.
“Paper & Rock Jeans are the eco-friendliest product in its class,” Tanwani said. “Our jeans are made to significantly reduce ocean plastic pollution without compromising comfort and style.”
Paper & Rock Jeans complete features include:
Itch Free: Soft to the touch.
“All humans owe it to our future generation to leave the planet in the same or better condition as when we arrived in it,” Tanwani added. “A single plastic bottle can kill over 50 marine lives, since marine animals eat plastic, which can starve and kill them. Since plastic litter may not decompose for 450 years, it will continue to affect oceanic ecosystems for centuries…so small decisions like choosing an eco-friendly product, or saying no to single-use plastic, makes a huge difference for the future of our planet.”

Tattoos are permanent, so it can be a real problem if clients change their mind afterwards. Of course, there is the option of laser removal, but what if removing unwanted tattoo was as simple as smoothing on a cream every day?
Lucy Dawe, Senior Skin Specialist at Pulse Light Clinic explains how tattoo removal cream works and why it's probably too good to be true.
The majority of tattoo removal creams claim to work by bleaching or peeling away the epidermis, or the top layer of skin, however; when getting a tattoo it is injecting pigment into the deeper layers of skin, where no topical cream can reach.
Many people choose a tattoo removal cream as a cheaper, easier option to permanently remove a tattoo (they typically cost from about £25 for a tube). Most of these creams contain many chemicals including an ingredient called Trichloroacetic Acid. This ingredient causes the skin to shed and peel which then in theory can allow the body to grow new skin to take its place.
There's no evidence that tattoo removal creams work. At best, tattoo removal cream might fade or lighten a tattoo but with a risk of leaving permanent damage to the skin.
It is an unfortunate reality that a lot of these 'quick solution' creams can really damage the skin (and they can hurt!) This is mainly due to the chemicals they contain. Just some of the side effects can include:
Unfortunately, I’ve seen many clients that have tried these creams in the past and really scarred their skin, leaving a very uneven amount of ink behind. This actually then makes alternative treatment such as laser tattoo removal more complex due to scar tissue (meaning more treatments for the desired effect). As they contain a high acidic content, they will also likely be extremely painful to use.
Tattoo removal creams are typically bought on the internet and never recommended by dermatologists or skincare professionals, therefore only used by people at home for a quick solution that can have hazardous effects on the skin.
Treating scarring left behind by acidic creams is far more costly and many people who have chosen the cream option initially do end up regretting it! But also choosing the right laser clinic with the best lasers AND knowledge of using them is just as important.
Laser tattoo removal avoids damaging the skin while removing the tattoo, unlike tattoo removal creams.
Laser tattoo removal effectively works by firing laser light into the tattoo which breaks the ink into tiny pieces, these little pieces are easy for the body to absorb. This allows the ink to be removed from the body itself. It is usually completed within six to eight sessions and will cost from around £90 for a very small tattoo.
It can be uncomfortable, however there are a few techniques to make clients more at ease, including the application of numbing cream, and cryo cooling the skin before, during and after the treatment.
Tattoo removal creams are only designed to affect the surface of the skin and not the deeper layers, but laser technology targets all of the ink, with no permanent risks to clients skin. Laser is a far better option to remove a tattoo and is the only effective way of doing so.

The summer of 2019 is going to be a brilliant season for jewelry enthusiasts. Angara.com has launched not one, but three gorgeous new gemstones to its already flourishing assortment.
The hat-trick began with the introduction of Moonstone jewelry in the month of June. Following this, Turquoise and Tsavorite creations were also added to the extensive collection of this popular online jewelry brand. The single most important objective of these fresh jewelry collections is to introduce the audience to lesser-known gems that have the potential to become bestsellers.
For instance, not many are aware that the Tsavorite is a rare beauty that can only be found in Africa. Moonstone, on the other hand, is blessed with adularescence; an optical phenomenon responsible for giving it a distinct moon-like glow. Lastly, the vibrant Turquoise is not just delightful to look at, but also comes packed with a fascinating legacy.
Angara has chosen each of these gems for their uniqueness and transformed them into equally beautiful creations; extensive enough to complement a variety of style preferences. In order to further enhance the shopping experience, the brand has provided an easy-to-use customization feature on its website.
Moonstone, Turquoise and Tsavorite are the birthstone options for June, December and January, respectively. But Angara’s latest collections are not restricted to any particular month. They’re for everyone who enjoys a pop of color, distinctiveness of a gem, or simply well-crafted fine jewelry.
Founded by Ankur Daga, Angara.com is a US-based fine jewelry eCommerce retailer that specializes in customized diamond and gemstone jewelry. Ankur's family has been in the fine gemstone business for generations and has deep roots in diamond and gemstone cutting, polishing and design. They have primarily catered to larger retailers around the world, specializing in sapphires, rubies, emeralds, tanzanites, diamonds and other precious and semi-precious gemstones, but in 2005 Ankur decided to bring their family heritage and jewelry directly to the public with the launch of Angara.com.
Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc. annoucnes the arrival of the Natron™ ST Series inks for pad printing onto soft touch, rubber, nylon, textiles and synthetic products. Examples of applications include soft touch pens, neck labels, rubber, nylon and synthetics.
What is soft touch? Soft touch is a coating applied to plastics and rubber substrates to give the coated products a smooth, soft feel.

Cured prints are also able to resist rubbing, machine washing, and scratch tests. The Natron™ ST series ink line is also easy to work with just like the Natron™ SE silicone inks.
The ST Series inks for soft touch comes in 20 high opacity standard colors and is available in 1kg containers. Custom colors are also available within eight business hours upon request.
Generally, the Natron ST series will air dry at 68°F in 20-30 seconds and will achieve full crosslinking within 24 - 48 hours. With catalyst added, full cross-link is achieved in 24 – 36 hours. Accelerated drying and curing can be achieved introducing heat at 150 - 225°F for approximately 60 seconds to two minutes. (Safety caution! Wait for the hot product to cool down before touching).
Natron ST Series pad printing inks not only solves the challenge of printing onto nylons, rubber, and soft touch substrates but it also offer economic value, durability, and vibrant prints.

Leadership Content, Pop Culture and Stage Drama collide this July 12th in Los Angeles, when iTalk LA holds its next leadership event at the former estate of Frank Sinatra. The world-renowned iTalk events confirmed they have asked in-demand Australian actor and celebrity auctioneer James Pratt to join the star-studded line up of speakers this July in Los Angeles. This is the first time an Australian talent has been asked to speak at iTalk. Pratt who is fast building an esteemed reputation internationally has impressed iTalk in the past with his skillset, and if he confirms, he will be join the best across USA Film, Television and Fashion including Sean Stone, film actor and son of the legendary film maker Oliver Stone, celebrity stylist Ali Levine, MTV’s Chanel West Coast, and Frank Knuckles former percussionist for The Roots and The Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon, all whom will be showcasing specific leadership advice aimed at inspiring the next generation of pioneers
Motivational Leadership events are growing rapidly in popularity, but with this growth also comes higher expectations from the audience according to Jen Montague, co-founder and Sr. Director of ITalk, and who’s worked hard at making sure her events are keeping up with the progressive trends.
One of the biggest challenges right now is to build events that satisfy the moment-by-moment engagement that audiences are craving and not just millennial audiences but audiences of all ages. Content has to grip them, keep them, and provide them an opportunity to participate, to party, to network and so much more. The content has to be engaging enough for them to then share it online and on social media with their own followers. In other words, it’s about the experience said Jen Montague Director of ITalk, who enjoys merging her music conservatory and theatre roots with her corporate leadership and human resources professional experience. The infusion of pop culture is another unique facet of the platform, keeping audiences engaged. We’re pushing leadership and pop culture forward with iTalk said the world acclaimed International DJ Casper, Co-Founder and Director of Music for iTalk and DJ for “super producer,” Rodney Jerkins.
In April iTalk Philadelphia featured speakers such as, Meisha Johnson (CBS Anchor) Stephen Hoelper, Vice President of Product, Comcast NBCUniversal and Desiree Rogers –former CEO of Johnson Publishing, LLC and former Social Secretary for Barack Obama’s Administration. But it was not just the speakers and their content serving as the engaging hook; the event featured live music and some original works by The International DJ Casper, along with the fact that the event was held on the roof of the majestic Kimmel Centre at sunset, ensuring an emotive and inspiring set of colours as the backdrop for learning and the perfect party scene.
This July, guests attending iTalk LA can expect to experience the same type of star power! Tickets are currently selling fast. Frank Sinatra’s mansion will serve as the backdrop for leadership development and empowerment in Los Angeles. The International DJ Casper signed to DarkChild Entertainment will be doing a live set to turn up the crowd, all culminating in a truly dope leadership-club “experience” iTalk has termed “Motivational Nightlife.”
The keynote speakers will also be cutting down there talk time to under 10 minutes to allow for better interaction with guests after speaking. iTalk provides three directives to their iTalkers Be Bold (make a strong impact), Be Brief (under10 minutes) Be Gone (get off the stage). The event also covers an array of topics all aimed at increasing those looking at self-improvement and being inspired; Courage, Vision, Change and more.
Although it’s not yet confirmed if Pratt has accepted his invitation to be a keynote speaker, it’s another testament to the enormous international reach iTalk Events attract, and the high calibre of talent their speakers have.
Ultimately, challenging attendees to: think non-traditionally, identify creative solutions to problems and share their own stories, based on their passionate why, is how Jen describes this next exciting ITalk event and the iTalk platform.

What is photography? When the question asked, everyone will have an image/images appear in their mind. Does the photography art just stop growing, existing as these commonly acknowledge schemes? The artist Fu Wenjun doesn’t think so. Turning away from the recording function of photography widely recognized by the public, Fu Wenjun aims at exploring to place photography art in dialogue with other art media, like Chinese painting, oil painting, print, sculpture etc, so as to extend the possibility of photography art and to provide the viewers different visual experience. Based on these reflections on the photography art, Fu Wenjun put forward concept and practice of “Digital Pictorial Photography”, an innovative photography art style.
On the occasion of the solo show at Diary Arts Center, titled “Is it photography?”, Fu Wenjun will exhibit his latest Digital Pictorial Photography works, which focus on his exploration of photography with the connection of painting, especially with sculpture. Apart from the aesthetic and artistic features, Fu Wenjun’s works show an Eastern philosophy thinking towards the global or regional issues related to history, culture, human life and nature. He brings another angle to view things happening around us and in our world. Is it photography? Yes, it is. It’s not the common one, but brings new interpretation to the definition of photography art.
The works June Snow, Tang Ceramic Horse, Play Shadow, Mysterious Ceramic Figure present the rich and colorful history of the city Xi’an, continuously inhabited since about 1100 BC. The objects like pagoda, ceramic art, shadow play show the open attitude towards different religions and integration of Chinese and other ethic culture in a long history happened in this city, as the starting point of the Silk Road, connecting East Asia and Southeast Asia with East Africa, West Asia and Southern Europe.
Under the Earth’s highest mountain, Mount Everest, Tibet is the highest region on Earth, with an average elevation of 16,000 ft. This “isolated” wonderland is given not only breathtaking natural landscape, but also the Tibetan people, their lifestyle and their unique culture are very fascinating, which lead to the series Wind from Tibet. The series focuses on the Sho Dun Festival, known as Yogurt festival is an important celebration for the Tibetan lay people as well as the monks usually in the middle of August, after a month's retreat by the monks who stay within their monasteries to avoid walking on the emerging summer insects and killing them.
The works of Fu Wenjun may confuse the viewers at a first glance if they are photography. In this way the artist called attention to people’s activity of reading images, highlighting processes of translation and interpretation that are shared by artist and viewer alike. In the process these works provoke us to reconsider the degree to which our pictures of reality are shaped by the visual conventions and codes of particular media.

If you are also curious about this procedure and wish to give it a try but are confused and unsure, we've got you covered. Here's all you need to know about the non-surgical butt enhancement procedure so you can make a decision is this treatment is right for you and proceed with confidence.
Dr Ash Dutta, Founder of Aesthetic Beauty Centre and one of the few highly trained and accredited surgeons in the UK will take us through the Non-Surgical Bum enhancement treatment.
What is a non-surgical bum enhancement procedure?
A non-surgical bum enhancement procedure essentially involves adding volume to the butt area to enlarge, as well as add definition and shape. The procedure also helps in boosting skin elasticity and lifting sagging buttocks and thighs back into their rightful place.
How does the non-surgical bum enhancement procedure work?
As the name suggests, the treatment does not involve surgery. Unlike the traditional enhancement or enlargement surgeries that extract fat from other parts of the body to place it in the desired area, or the use of implants, the non-surgical butt enhancement procedure aims to add volume to the butt area using dermal fillers. You may have seen many celebrities including Nicki Minaj and Beyonce who are flaunting fuller butts in style.
Why should one opt for a non-surgical procedure?
The greatest benefit of opting for a non-surgical procedure is the fact that there is reduced downtime and less tissue trauma involved. Also the fact that there is no scarring makes it the ideal treatment to go for. There is also a very much reduced risk of infection and complications.
How is the non-surgical procedure better than the traditional surgery?
Injections of dermal fillers make it possible to create subtle changes in the process of reshaping the butt which is not necessarily possible in the traditional surgery. This helps create a nicely shaped butt instead of only a larger butt. The traditional surgery involves addition of volume to the area but tends to make the skin around the area saggy, droopy, spongy and loose. The non-surgical butt lift procedure involves addition of a significant amount of volume in the area as well as tightening and lifting the skin with the use of advanced technology. This leads to a well shaped, well-toned butt.
Another fascinating feature available in the non-surgical treatment is the controlled amount of volume addition. One can look mid-way into the treatment as to whether the desired volume has been attained and if not, one can go ahead with adding more. This is not possible in the traditional surgical method as you are likely to be under sedation or general anesthesia so cannot contribute to the outcome once the surgery has begun.
Who is it suitable for?
Anyone who wishes to enhance or enlarge their butt area, over the age of 18. It is a great alternative for anyone who does not enough fat to harvest for the Brazilian Butt lift (from other parts of their body) and/or are not keen on liposuction.
How long does the procedure take and what is the downtime involved?
The duration of the procedure and the number of sittings required will vary slightly in each case. At the consultation you’ll receive a tailored treatment plan, after an examination. As a rough guide: treatments can take about 45-60 minutes.
As for the downtime, there is a very short to no downtime involved depending on the requirements and the kind of procedure one has opted for. There can be a little tenderness and swelling in the area for around 5-7 days.
Are there any risks of deformities?
The surgical method including liposuction and fat transfer involves a risk of deformities since fat is extracted out of the body and placed inside another part of the body, so there is a slight chance that it does not ‘take’ well, or there may be unevenness and asymmetry; and hence a corrective procedure may be required. The non-surgical butt enhancement however, is different. It does not include any risks of deformities.
Are there any side-effects involved?
The non-surgical treatment is a relatively safe treatment to go for but one must always book an appointment with a professional to assess one’s individual case. Before going for any sort of treatment, it is advisable to have a detailed consultation since there may be slightly different consequences; everybody is unique. It is also important to gather all the relevant information regarding the procedure; ie. do your research.
