Introduction Nowadays most people are concerned with the appearance of their rear end. It is not only about the size, but also the shape and projection of the buttocks. There are a few methods that allow for butt remodeling, and none of them provide long-lasting or immediate results. Plastic surgery is actually the only safe and effective solution for bigger, rounder, perkier buttocks that can last over time. The butt remodeling procedures offered by plastic surgery target both male and female patients who are preoccupied with having rounder buttocks and a more harmonious body shape. It is important to know that buttocks are just like breasts, which are important symbols of sex appeal. Moreover, studies show that the more accentuated the ratio between the waist and hips, the more attention a woman gets from the opposite sex. In most cultures around the globe, curvaceous hips and buttocks have always been appreciated and considered a sign of vitality and fertility. Moreover, fashion styles nowadays are very revealing and makes us more conscious than ever of the appearance of our bodies. Now it is almost impossible not to be aware of every little imperfection. This is the reason why so many men and women ask for help from plastic surgery to improve the features of their body, especially the buttocks. In terms of buttock remodeling, we have different options: butt reduction with liposuction, butt augmentation with implants, and the Brazilian butt lift, which is a technique used to improve the appearance of the butt using the patient’s own fat cells. In this article, we will discuss about the results that can be achieved with the Brazilian butt lift, how natural they are, and how the procedure is performed. Overview The Brazilian butt lift is a minimally invasive procedure that delivers excellent results when it comes to lifting and augmenting the buttocks. The recovery period after the Brazilian butt lift is very short, and patients prefer it also because it leaves behind little scars. This surgical procedure involves extracting fat from an area of your body and using it to improve and reshape your buttocks. It involves liposuction where suction tubes (cannulas) are used to remove fat from one or multiple areas of your body with excess adipose tissue such as the abdomen, hips, back, or thighs. The fat is then purified for transfer and reinjected using special syringes. Usually, the plastic surgeon will make small incisions both in the areas to be treated with liposuction and on the buttocks where the fat will be injected. The good news is that the incisions are no longer than 3-4 mm and this means they can be easily hidden with clothing and pose little risk for infection after surgery. After the patient is put under general anesthesia, the plastic surgeon starts with liposuction on the donor areas. The plastic surgeon will remove the fat after he dislodges and liquefies it with the help of the cannula. After the fat is collected, it goes through a centrifugation process to get purified. Then, the fat transfer phase begins. The cannula moves forward and backward to ensure that a smooth, linear deposit of adipose tissue is left to reshape and increase the area of the buttocks. After the plastic surgeon achieves the desired results, the incisions of the liposuction are closed with sutures. Drain tubes can be inserted, and a compression garment is needed after the surgery. Why choose BBL instead of butt implants? The choice between lipofilling or implants is determined according to the aesthetic results sought by the patient. Lipofilling is less invasive and guarantees a more natural result. However, the result of buttock reshaping with lipofilling is minimal, unlike implants that offer more dramatic possibilities. We can say that the Brazilian butt lift is mostly meant for people who are looking for a moderate increase of their posterior, who have enough fat, and who are in good health. Patients who choose BBL have a butt size that is not overly small but flat, maybe even a bit saggy and lacks beautiful shape. We use the Brazilian butt lift mostly for reshaping purposes and not necessarily to achieve an impressive augmentation. However, keep in mind that a considerable augmentation of the buttocks using fat transfer is possible if the patient has enough fat tissue in the donor areas and is willing to undergo repeated procedures to increase the size of their buttocks. So what are the other reasons why people choose BBL instead of butt implants? One of the reasons is that the procedure leaves no significant scarring behind. This is important for patients who are turned off by the possibility of having permanent scars after plastic surgery. Moreover, many patients prefer the BBL as it is almost impossible for someone who doesn’t know you underwent plastic surgery to tell whether your buttocks are natural or not. And the reality is that your buttocks are indeed 100% natural, even if you had to undergo plastic surgery to get them. The Brazilian butt lift: 100% natural results Will the butt look and feel natural after a Brazilian butt lift? This is a question we often hear from patients interested in undergoing the procedure. Most patients undergoing plastic surgery nowadays want results that are as natural as possible. They don’t want features that look unnatural and fake, and they are looking for harmony and proportions rather than a huge butt that will be difficult to cover with normal clothes. The Brazilian butt lift is the perfect procedure for patients looking for natural results. The buttocks will look perfectly natural and will feel completely natural as it is made just out of the natural tissues of the butt, with no external prosthesis. The buttocks naturally have a skin envelope, a fat layer, and muscles. When the Brazilian butt lift is performed, the only addition to the existing structures of the buttocks is more fat. The fat that is harvested from other areas of the body and processed is injected into the existing layer of fat and also in the muscles of the buttocks. After the fat cells transferred develop a new blood network, they will remain in the buttocks forever and behave just like the other fat cells that were in the buttocks before the procedure. The results of the Brazilian butt lift are generally satisfactory, especially for people who want a moderate increase in the volume of their buttocks. Shortly after the operation, a slight reduction can be observed, but the result will be stabilized three to six months after the surgery. The buttocks might look bigger immediately after the Brazilian butt lift than the final results of the procedure. This is natural as the plastic surgeon will inject more fat than necessary as a certain amount of the fat grafted will be reabsorbed by the body in the months following the procedure. The results that can be noticed after three to six months are sustainable and can be considered permanent if the patient keeps a stable weight. Considerable weight fluctuations can impact the results of the Brazilian butt lift by making the buttocks bigger or smaller. Conclusion The Brazilian butt lift has become very popular in the United States and all over the world in the last few years. The plastic surgeon will use the patient’s own fat cells to create a better contour for the buttocks, enhance the shape, and even create a moderate augmentation. The procedure is preferred by patients who want to get 100% natural results. During the procedure, the plastic surgeon will perform liposuction on one or multiple areas of the body that have an excess of adipose tissue. The fat harvested in this way will be processed and pure fat cells are used for reinjection into the buttocks. The plastic surgeon will address the upper part of the buttocks and the sides with fat injections to create a nice, beautiful shape. Another important benefit of undergoing the Brazilian butt lift is that it will be difficult for people to know you had plastic surgery as there is little scarring left behind after the procedure. The incisions needed are no longer than 3-4 mm, hence the scars are barely visible after the cicatrization process is complete. If you want better contoured, perkier buttocks that look completely natural, the Brazilian butt lift is probably the right procedure for you.
