Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Right for You?

The Brazilian butt lift is a highly popular procedure that can enhance the size, shape, and contour of your buttocks using your own fat cells. However, the procedure is not right for everyone, so before you commit, make sure you agree with the following statements:

You want a natural alternative to implants

There are two main techniques when it comes to enhancing the buttocks; butt implants and a fat transfer. While implants can give you a significant enhancement, that isn’t the look every woman is going for. With the Brazilian butt lift, the buttocks are given a more natural-looking enhancement that is still noticeable to you. With butt implants also comes larger incisions, leading to more trauma on the body and scarring. When you choose the Brazilian butt lift, only tiny incisions are required for the fat cells to be placed. By using your own natural fat cells for the enhancement, you also eliminate the risk of your body rejecting treatment.

You have enough excess fat to use

The Brazilian butt lift relies on your own fat cells for the enhancement. That means to be a candidate, you must have enough excess fat on another area of the body to be taken for placement. This typically involves the upper thighs or abdomen. To obtain the fat cells, liposuction techniques are used, making small incisions to insert the cannula and break up fat cells. The good news is, you get to experience the slimming benefits of liposuction at the same time!

You are prepared for a strict recovery

After Brazilian butt lift, there are a few rules that you will need to follow closely to ensure successful results. Once the fat cells are placed in the buttocks, they will need to establish their own blood supply to survive. To optimize how many fat cells survive the process, there should be absolutely no sitting or laying on your back for several weeks. Putting pressure on the buttocks too soon could cut off their blood supply and cause them to die.
