When To Consider A Brazilian Butt Lift The Brazilian butt lift is an aesthetic procedure that entails liposuction and fat transfer in one session. This procedure can provide a considerable improvement in the overall body shape of the patient by taking fat from where it is in excess and injecting it into the buttocks to make it perkier and rounder. The Brazilian butt lift is often performed with the patient under general anesthetic, and it starts with liposuction of the donor areas. The stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise will be removed from localized areas of the body such as the abdomen and the flanks, or in some cases, the thighs or the lower back. The body is hence contoured and slimmed down, creating a nice shape and curves in all the right places. When the Brazilian butt lift is performed, the plastic surgeon will collect the fat with liposuction and inject it into the buttocks. The procedure can be considered a butt augmentation, but the results are often not comparable as the ones that can be achieved after butt implant surgery. However, the Brazilian butt lift is a procedure preferred by patients with flat buttocks who want to get a more appealing and perky butt. Who is a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift? Well, this procedure targets women who want to get rid of the unaesthetic adipose tissue localized in different areas of the body and get a nicer behind. The hourglass silhouette is often a goal for women interested in undergoing the Brazilian butt lift. The procedure is safe when performed by a board-certified and experienced plastic surgeon in an accredited medical facility or hospital and leaves behind little in terms of scarring. When the procedure is performed, the plastic surgeon will only make small incisions in the donor areas of no more than 3-4 mm to be able to introduce the liposuction cannula. The incisions made on the buttocks are also insignificant in size as they are only needed to insert the special syringe that injects fat. When to consider a Brazilian butt lift? This is a question we hear often in our practice. Before anything else, you should know that to consider a Brazilian butt lift, you should have fat deposits in other areas of the body. The plastic surgeon can collect up to six or seven liters of fat during one session of liposuction. This fat is processed and only a certain amount of it is injected into the buttocks. This means that you need to have a considerable amount of fat on the donor areas to get satisfactory results after the Brazilian butt lift. Moreover, you should consider the Brazilian butt lift only if you have a normal weight and you don’t plan to lose or gain more weight in the future. Any additional weight fluctuations will impact the results of the Brazilian butt lift.
