The Brazilian butt lift is a butt augmentation procedure that gives women a fuller body profile with more prominent buttocks. Many women opt to have the Brazilian butt lift over butt implants because results from the Brazilian buttlift look more “natural.”
Knowing whether or not you are an ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift can be distinguished in a few ways. If you are wanting a butt augmentation but do not like the idea of implants. Whether you have enough fat in other areas of your body to relocate for the injection into the buttocks. If you are unsure whether or not you are an ideal candidate speaking with a medical trained professional such as Mark A. Schusterman can make this decision for you.
Butt implants are silicone implants inserted into the buttocks. This procedure is mainly recommended for women that have small frames with minimal fat in the stomach and flank areas. The Brazilian butt lift is done by using fat injections or fat transfers to the buttocks using fat liposuctioned from a different part of the body. This method produces more “natural” looking results than the implant method and is often preferred by plastic surgeons.
The area around the buttocks, including the stomach, thighs, and lower back are liposuctioned. The fat taken from these areas is processed and purified. The plastic surgeon then injects the purified fat into certain areas of the buttocks at different depths to create a smooth and uniform appearance.
A Brazilian butt lift has a lower risk of infection compared to implants. Additionally, the areas liposuctioned for fat transfer appear leaner.
