Liposuction is a Necessary Component of a Brazilian Butt Lift

Hi there-

Your question is a little like asking if you have to get in a car to ride in a car to the mall...

It is not possible to graft your fat into your butt without first harvesting it via liposuction.

Brazilian butt lift and liposuction

The Brazilian butt lift is a liposuction and fat injection procedure. You must do the liposuction to get the fat to inject the buttocks. Fat is a storage compartment and when you eat if you don't burn the calories that very 2nd they are stored as fat. What you doing with the Brazilian butt lift is shifting the storage compartments from the abdomen and waist where you don't want them and putting them into the buttocks or you do want them. Liposuction is the most important part of the Brazilian butt lift procedure.
