The Brazilian Butt Lift is one of the fastest-growing procedures in the United States – and for good reason. As society continues to see an ample backside as an aesthetic ideal, many women and men are turning to the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure to add volume to the buttocks.
Unlike traditional butt augmentation procedures, the Brazilian Butt Lift doesn’t use implants to achieve a more rounded backside; rather, the patient’s own fat is harvested, cleaned, and injected into key areas of the buttocks. This method leads to more natural-looking results.
Additionally, since the body’s own fat is being used to augment the buttocks (rather than an implant), there’s no risk for rejection.
Are you interested in undergoing a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure? Ideal candidates for this procedure meet the following criteria:
- Fat for Liposuction: A key component of this procedure involves removing fat from the body so that it can be injected into the buttocks. Fat is typically harvested from the stomach, waist, and even the thighs. To ensure for a successful procedure, your plastic surgeon will harvest 2-3 times more fat than what’s typically needed for an injection.
For this reason, patients should have enough fat to support these liposuction requirements.
- Realistic Expectations: While Brazilian Butt Lifts are meant to add volume to the buttocks, patients should still have reasonable expectations for their final results. Excessive augmentation can look disproportionate on certain body types. You should have a full understanding of what your body will look like once the procedure has been completed.
- Good Health: Like with all surgeries, you’ll need to be in excellent health. That means you should follow a healthy lifestyle that’s free from smoking and excessive drinking. You should also be committed to following through with post-operative instructions from your plastic surgeon.
