The Brazilian butt lift involves fat removal from one part of the body and transfers it to the gluteal area. It has grown in popularity in the last few years especially because it improves the overall shape and appearance of the buttocks. With talk about it spreading quickly, myths have also surfaced. These myths can easily confuse you and change your mind about going for a Brazilian butt lift or give you unrealistic expectations. Here are some misconceptions people have about the procedure. It is a weight loss procedure. When you take a look at photos of patients after having Brazilian butt lifts, you can’t help but be amazed with the results. Many even believe that the procedure can help them lose weight. This is not true. Almost all of the fatty tissue removed from an unwanted area is injected back. This means that any change in weight after the procedure is very minimal and insignificant. Then again, it is not the primary purpose of the procedure. It is intended to give patients a balanced and sexier behind. It is too risky. Although all sorts of medical procedures come with risks, the advancements in cosmetic surgery including the techniques and equipment utilized have made it less invasive. Patients can stay awake while the procedure is performed. They can also resume their regular activities in a matter of weeks. The procedure is considered low risk and has a short recovery time. There is no room for weight gain. Although it is best to maintain your weight after a Brazilian butt lift, you can gain a few pounds and not worry about the shape of your buttocks. It should still stay intact. Then again, your goal is still to maintain a healthy weight not just for your reshaped butt, but also for your overall health.
