Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Right for Me?


July 18, 2018

Have you ever dreamed of full, youthful, and nicely lifted buttocks? If so, you’ve probably heard of the Brazilian butt lift, a procedure that’s rapidly gaining popularity because of its effectiveness and relative simplicity compared to other, more drastic and invasive, butt-enhancing surgeries. While indeed an augmentation method with high satisfaction ratings amongst our customers, the Brazilian butt lift is not for everyone. Read on to find out whether you are the right candidate for this procedure.

What Is the Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian butt lift is a fat-grafting procedure, with three well-defined stages, each requiring surgical expertise, knowledge, and a good amount of hands-on experience from your chosen plastic surgeon.

1. Fat Liposuction

During the first stage, fat cells are removed by liposuction from your thighs, waist, abdomen, or other areas you’ve previously agreed upon with your plastic surgeon. This delicate procedure requires careful planning and completion to not ruin the acquired fat cells in the process.

2. Fat Processing

In the second stage, fat calls will be processed to rid them of dead skin cells and other debris that could ruin the outcome of your procedure. Only well-preserved fat cells should be reinjected into the buttocks to ensure that the results will be lasting.

3. Fat Reinjection

The final stage is all about carefully reinjecting the processed fat cells into the desired areas. Your plastic surgeon will use the microdroplet technique, adding a small volume of fat cells at a time to be able to better control the outcome and avoid unsatisfactory results that won’t be permanent.

How Do I Know If I’m a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

There are various considerations to keep in mind when wishing to proceed with the Brazilian butt lift method. The most important are the following:

  • Your thighs, waist, abdomen, or other body parts have a certain amount of excess fat to use for this procedure.
  • You are in good health and can tolerate anesthesia and the recovery period.
  • You have realistic expectations; certain body types look better with full, round buttocks than others.

If these criteria match you, it is likely that the Brazilian butt lift is the right fit for you to enhance, lift, and create beautifully rounded buttocks for you. Contact us today to learn more!
