Brazilian Butt Lift and Its Advantages
Not every woman is blessed by mother nature with a slim, toned body and a voluptuous derriere. You can achieve that toned and taut body through balanced diet and regular exercise, but for a svelte behind you need to undergo the knife of the plastic surgeons.
Women who want to have bigger, rounded derriere or enlarged hips can consider Brazilian butt lift surgery.
What is Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure which uses patient’s own body fat to add volume to the buttocks. The procedure results in a youthful, perky and rounder rear end and a more contoured body profile. This type of butt lift is not to be confused with a butt lift surgery which is designed to create a fuller, curvier buttocks and hips using buttock implants.
This butt enhancement procedure involves taking fat from different parts of your body, purifying it and then transferring it back to your butts in a process called lipoinjection.
For the procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will want to harvest fat typically from any area of the body, usually the stomach, flanks, thighs or hips, where they find enough fat to deal with for the butt augmentation. In fact, only about half of the harvested fat is suitable for reinjection. The fat harvested from donor sites is injected throughout the buttocks evenly to create a more curvaceous lower body profile.
The process of re-injecting the selected donor fat cells into your buttocks involves hundreds of injections. As opposed to conventional butt lift surgery which involves incisions and implants to make the butts appear lifted and perky, this unique procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttocks using your own purified fat cells.
Brazilian butt lift is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about two hours.
Who May and May Not Benefit From Brazilian Butt Lift
To be a good candidate for Brazilian butt lift, you must have adequate amount of fat somewhere on your body that can be removed and transferred to your buttocks. Women who are too thin and lack enough donor fat to remove via liposuction for reuse cannot undertake this procedure. Those who take certain drugs or herbal products that increase bleeding time are not reasonable candidates for this type of butt lift. Brazilian butt lift candidates must have realistic goals and expectations. Most importantly, the patients seeking this procedure must be in good health and have good skin tone in the areas that are to have liposuction.
The great thing about the fat transfer butt lift procedure is that it does not require opening a slit into the skin and inserting a foreign object (implant). The only thing being introduced to the body is your own body fat. The threat of infection is minimal, since the procedure is done without actual incisions.
Because it is your own fat cells being transferred from one are of your body to another, it eliminates the possibility of allergic reaction and risk of the injected cells being rejected by your body. Your body will accept its own fat without risks and complications.
Another benefit of this procedure is that it can be done in conjunction with other liposuction treatments. It provides additional body sculpting. For example, you can get rid of the excess flab you have accumulated on your other parts of the body like thighs and love handles while at the same time enhancing your buttocks.
As long as the fat is transferred appropriately, your backside appears more lifted and more attractive. If performed by a plastic surgeon who has a great deal of experience with this technique, the procedure may last 20 years or more.
