Is Brazilian Butt Lift Right for You?

Many people are considering butt augmentation to increase the size and shape of their backsides. This procedure has become very popular due to celebrities who have made the enhanced look very popular. A highly touted procedure, the Brazilian Butt Lift is one of the most requested from those seeking a more pronounced derriere.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift procedure actually uses a person’s own fat that is harvested from fat deposits using a gentle liposuction technique. The fat is removed from areas such as the thighs, abdomen, and hips, which may have extra fat. This provides an added benefit of smoothing and contouring these areas that may have excess, troublesome fat.

The harvested fat is then separated and purified through a process using a centrifuge. Only the healthiest fat cells are then transferred into the buttocks using tiny cannulas. The fat is injected at different depths in the buttocks for better absorption that will present a smooth, natural appearance. This fat transfer technique also offers less risk of infection, allergic reaction, or other such side effects, since the patient’s own cells are used.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Most candidates for this procedure have a fair amount of excess fat that can be used for the fat transfer. Those who are very petite or do not have localized fat deposits may be better suited for a silicone gluteal implant. However, this question may be a bit more complex than just gauging your height and weight. Other questions include individual goals and what is the quality of your skin. The best way to determine whether you are a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift is to consult with an experienced and knowledgeable cosmetic surgeon.

Dr. Thomas Wright, medical director of the Laser Lipo and Vein Center says, “It is important that patients sit down with a qualified surgeon to determine their suitability for this procedure. There are so many different considerations that must be determined.” He continues, “Patient expectation and satisfaction is a top goal; however, we also want to ensure the utmost in safety and health.”

Dr. Wright and his staff invite anyone who is interested in butt augmentation to schedule a no-obligation, complimentary consultation to determine which butt augmentation procedure is best for their individual case.
