Self-Awareness Of The Journey
The Brazilian Butt Lift has grown in popularity over the years. But according to influencer and podcaster Chantel Sophia, the procedure can intensify insecurities. She joins the Isiah Factor: Uncensored from South London to share her complicated feelings.
Chasing The Look
At the time, she was just like the rest of the people who were obsessed with following the trend in order to improve their appearance and self-esteem. “You are always looking for something that doesn’t exist,” Chantel warns.

During the consultation, she was also told that they could take her money, but she didn’t want to because it wouldn’t be worth it, and there was no reason to operate on her.

The realization that this may not have been a good idea came after the calm down of her surgery. She said it was like a drug. You enjoy it for months, years, or as little as weeks. She said she was angry and didn’t like it. It was not all she had hoped it to be.
Quick Fix Mindset Vs. Physically Changing
Once she had the surgery, she realized that not only was she not fully satisfied, but she also realized it was a mindset over what was physically wrong with her. And she admits that physically she already had a great body, so she knew it had to be something else when she was not satisfied.
She said if she is 100% honest, she regrets it and wishes she had never done it. It took her to a mindset of
