Benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift

by

You may have heard of a Brazilian butt lift, a relatively straightforward procedure with an exotic-sounding name. This procedure has been popular with celebrities, particularly in light of the fact that well-endowed stars like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian have no problem flashing their own booties. If you are looking for a way to enhance your own curves, we have a few reasons why a Brazilian butt lift might be worth your consideration.

Double Shaping Benefits

While the main focus of a Brazilian butt lift is on adding shape and fullness to the backside, it offers a double body shaping benefit. The fat that is used to augment the buttocks comes from another area of the patient’s body. This means you undergo a liposuction procedure first to remove stubborn, unwanted areas of fat from problem spots like the hips and abdomen.

This is the perfect solution for patients that have been unable to eliminate those final areas of fat with diet and exercise alone. Keep in mind you will need sufficient fat cells to obtain the results you are hoping for in the buttock area in order for this procedure to be successful.

Customizable to Your Needs

Once the fat is removed, it is purified and prepared for injection into the buttock area. Unlike synthetic implants that can also be used for buttock augmentation, fat transfer allows for just the amount of fullness you want, where you want it. The procedure is completely customized to your desired result, so you get all the curves you want without settling for a standard size and shape.

Minimally Invasive Procedure

Although liposuction is considered a surgical procedure that does require anesthesia and a recovery period, it is much less than what you might expect with other types of surgery. Many liposuction procedures can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation, which reduces your risk and your recovery time. Incisions for liposuction are also very small, which means a quicker healing process and almost no visible scarring after your procedure.

The injections for buttock augmentation do not require any type of anesthesia and are relatively comfortable. The ability to enhance by injection also eliminates the problem of scarring after your surgery. You will need to wear a compression garment and avoid sitting or lying on your buttocks for a number of weeks to ensure the treatment area heals properly and the fat transfer takes. Most patients are back to regular activities within about two weeks.

Long-Lasting Results

The recovery period is fairly short compared to the long-lasting results you will enjoy from this procedure. You should see the full results of your Brazilian butt lift within about six months after your procedure as the fat settles into the new area. At that point, your results should last several years and many patients find their new curves are a permanent and natural fixture.

A Brazilian butt lift is an effective way to enhance your curves and your body profile overall.
