Big booties are in, and if you weren’t blessed with one naturally, in comes the Brazilian butt lift. This cosmetic procedure has long been popular in South America, but now that America is catching on to big, beautiful bottoms, it’s rising in popularity here. What does the procedure entail, and who is a good candidate for it?
What Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Fix?
The surgery itself changes the volume of the buttocks. This procedure is also known as a butt augmentation. If you want a larger rump that looks like you acquired it through thousands of squats or good genetics, this is the surgery for you. Surgeons and patients both agree it gives you a more natural appearance than a traditional butt lift with implants.
Who is a Good Candidate?
The best candidates are those who want more volume in their backside. You’re a very good candidate if you haven’t been able to improve the size and shape of your buttocks with exercise. Your body type is important, too. If you’re very petite, a Brazilian butt lift might make you look disproportionate. During a consultation at our office, our board-certified plastic surgeon will be able to tell you if your body type makes you a good candidate.
What is the Surgery Like?
Unlike other buttocks procedures, a Brazilian butt lift uses your body’s excess fat to augment the buttocks. The fat is removed from areas like the belly, hips and thighs with liposuction. The fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks. Quite a bit of extra fat is needed, so if you don’t have any excess fat, then you may need to gain weight first. Brazilian butt lifts heal a lot more quickly than typical butt lifts because there aren’t any large incisions.
This type of butt lift gives you two benefits: you get a rounder bottom, but you also get slimmer in another area with the liposuction. Our experienced plastic surgeon can extract the fat in a way that will give you the perfect silhouette to complement your new behind.
